About Me

Stephanie Izaguirre first became interested in Immigration Law in 2001 when she worked at the US Consulate in Rio de Janeiro.  After interviewing hundreds of people applying for all types of visas to the United States, she saw a real need for good immigration advice.  She graduated from law school at the University of Denver, spending a year as a visiting student at the University of North Carolina, and passing the North Carolina Bar in 2005.  While in law school, Stephanie was an intern at the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network (RMIAN) and also spent a semester working as part of the law school's immigration law clinic representing asylum clients.


From there, Stephanie worked as an adjudications officer for US Citizenship and Immigration Services in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  While there, she became intimately familiar with adjustment of status and naturalization, as well as removing conditions on permanent residence, adoption petitions, and the naturalization of minors.  After leaving USCIS and working with a private law firm in San Juan, Stephanie returned to Colorado Springs, Colorado, passed the Colorado Bar, and opened the Izaguirre Law Firm in November 2010.
