Pamela Fuentes is acutely aware of the immensely important role that immigration law can play in a person’s life. She has experienced the immigration system with her Chilean parents and her Brazilian husband. She understands how it feels to wait for the decision, to imagine the worst, and to hope for the best. It is as a result of her personal experiences that Pamela became drawn to the practice of immigration law. Then, during law school, she worked with the Latinas Know Your Rights project, which helps domestic violence survivors obtain legal residence. Every successful case was a life-changing triumph for the clients, and the experience was more gratifying than Pamela could have imagined. From then on, Pamela has had no doubt that she wants to dedicate herself to the practice of immigration law.

Pamela has a Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and attended law school at Temple University in Philadelphia. While at law school, she joined the Temple Journal of Science, Technology & Environmental Law to pursue her lifelong passion for writing. She published an article discussing the balance between patents, the pharmaceutical industry, and the needs of the world’s population. Then, during her final year, she was a research assistant for an immigration professor, and explored the rights of migrants throughout the world.

Many other experiences have contributed to Pamela’s growth as a professional. After completing her undergraduate studies, she spent ten months as a member of the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps. During this time, she realized the invaluable strength of teamwork, as well as the joy of helping others. After law school, she clerked for the Honorable Kathleen M. Delaney in Camden, NJ, and learned to juggle countless tasks as she assisted the judge in issuing the right decision in emotionally charged cases. Most recently, she traveled throughout the country, representing people in Social Security Disability hearings. She learned about the responsibility of advocating for her clients in front of Administrative Law Judges, and the simple yet profound importance of truly listening to her clients. Pamela is excited to continue advancing her career as a lawyer at FitzGerald & Company.
