About me

Maria McIntyre was born near Columbus, Ohio in 1975. Her mother is of
Vietnamese descent and immigrated to the United States in the late
1960s. Ms. McIntyre has resided in the Dallas- Fort Worth area since
childhood. She graduated with honors from Texas Christian University in
1998 with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Political Science. In 2002,
Ms. McIntyre earned her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Texas Wesleyan
University School of Law.


McIntyre realized her passion for U.S. immigration law at an early age.
Ms. McIntyre observed the challenges her mother faced as her mother
began immigrating her siblings from Vietnam to the United States in the
early 1980s. Ms. McIntyre began practicing immigration law in 2003, when
she became a staff attorney for a local non-profit organization that
focused on providing low-cost and effective legal representation to
undocumented immigrants. Ms. McIntyre moved into private practice in May
2004 when she joined a full-service immigration firm in Dallas, Texas.
Ms. McIntyre became a senior associate of this firm in 2005 and remained
in this position until 2008. Ms. McIntyre has also served as an expert
witness on the practice of immigration law for the State of Texas.

McIntyre is admitted to practice in Texas and the United States
District Court for the Northern District of Texas. She is a member of
the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Tarrant County Bar
Association and Dallas Bar Association.
