Fong Ilagan Paralegal Magali García to take the Texas Bar Exam

Fong Ilagan Paralegal, Magali García, the First Thurgood Marshall School of Law Masters Graduate to take the Texas Bar Exam

July 23, 2019 (Houston, TX) – The Texas immigration law firm, Fong Ilagan, is proud to announce the success of paralegal, Magali García, in her approval to take the Texas Bar Exam. Magali is a licensed attorney in her home country, Mexico, and she is the first foreign attorney to graduate with an LL.M. degree from Thurgood Marshall School of Law’s Immigration and Naturalization program.

Upon immigrating to the United States, Magali was quickly accepted to the LL.M. Immigration and Naturalization Law Program at Thurgood Marshall School of Law.

“The program gave me the opportunity to learn different practice areas of immigration law and to further pursue my passion for immigration law,” said Magali. While studying, she obtained an internship with the Fong Ilagan, LLP team. She continues, “and my position at Fong Ilagan has allowed me to contribute to changing lives for people in this country.”

“As a busy immigration law firm, the attorneys are only as successful as the legal support team we work with,” said attorney, William D. Fong, Managing Partner of Fong Ilagan. He continues,

“Having Magali on our team has been invaluable and we are proud to be a part of her journey and success. Magali is dedicated to her work and clients in achieving their immigration goals.”

Magali’s interest for immigration stems from many years travelling with her family to the United States, where her father was a musician performing throughout the country. In her travels, she met foreign musicians from all over the world with whom discussed their complex immigration process. Magali received her law degree in Mexico from Universidad Latina de America in 2008, where she proceeded to work as a professional attorney working on civil and family cases. Magali eventually made her way to Houston to grow her career and continuing education specific to immigration law.

Magali is currently preparing to take the Texas State Bar Exam and obtain her license to practice immigration law in the United States.
