In December, we officially welcomed Lori R. Dowell to the Gasparian Spivey Immigration team, but Lori is not new to the New Orleans immigration law family. She is a 2016 graduate of Tulane University Law School, but while at school, she worked as a paralegal in an immigration law firm with us. She graduated in the top 10 percent of her class and received the prestigious Tulane 34 award. She is licensed in Louisiana and Tennessee and fluent in both English and Spanish.
Lori has ten years of progressive work experience in immigration law. She started her career as a paralegal, then interned with the Executive Office for Immigration Review and the Loyola Immigration Law Clinic during law school. After passing the Louisiana bar in 2016, she started practicing in Alexandria, Louisiana with Gold Weems Bruser Sues & Rundell, where she handled business and family immigration matters, as well as removal defense.
We are pleased to welcome Lori as an attorney on the GSI team!
