– Attorney Yasmin Voglewede
Yasmin was first introduced to immigration law when she was invited to volunteer at the Department of Immigration of Catholic Charities of San Antonio. It was there where she realized she had a strong passion for helping the immigrant community, specifically asylum seekers and victims of crime. Their stories made her realize how strong and resilient they were, but also, how necessary it was to show them compassion and care.
Yasmin was subsequently hired by Catholic Charities and worked there for 10 years, until she decided to move on and opened Elvora Law Firm. By starting Elvora Law Firm, Yasmin hopes to continue to serve the immigrant community and not just continue her focus on asylum seekers and victims of crime, but also assist with family reunification and citizenship.
When she isn’t fighting for immigrant rights, Yasmin likes to spend time with her dog, crochet, and support her favorite sports team like the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Go Irish!
