Dra. Pahola Burgos
Pahola K. Burgos Chala is the daughter of two Mexican immigrants. His parents came to the United States more than two decades ago seeking a better future for their family. On the way they met a notary who promised to help them resolve their immigration status. Unfortunately, this man not only lied to them and didn't help them adjust their immigration status, he also stole all of their savings. It was at this moment that Pahola could clearly see the inequality and need that exists in our immigrant community.
Through her effort and dedication, Pahola graduated as a lawyer and now aspires to be able to provide hope and help to families like hers who have nowhere to turn.
Growing up in an immigrant family has helped Pahola realize that many times, the needs of our community go beyond how to navigate the immigration system. For this reason, Pahola accepts a variety of cases. In this way, Pahola can offer its clients a complete service that covers all their needs.
