About Alejandra

Learn Alejandra’s areas of practice.


Born and raised in Aberdeen, Washington, Alejandra moved to Bellingham in 2014 to attend Western Washington University. Alejandra graduated from Western in 2018 with an undergraduate degree, where she created her own area of focus at Fairhaven College in Law, Diversity, and Justice, focusing on Immigration Outreach and Cultural Studies. She also received a minor in American Cultural Studies from Western. While at Western, Alejandra coordinated legal aid clinics and a citizenship day during her senior year. Alejandra is a native Spanish speaker and was an interpreter at the legal aid clinics she coordinated.

After graduating, Alejandra worked as an immigration paralegal at a law firm in Mount Vernon for two years. There she worked on asylum cases, U-visa cases, cancellation of removal cases, VAWA cases, adjustment of status cases, family-based petitions, and L-1A visas. While working as an immigration paralegal, she was encouraged by her supervising attorney to go to law school.

In 2020, Alejandra went to Idaho to pursue her law degree at the University of Idaho College of Law. While in law school, Alejandra served as the Chief Moscow Editor to the Idaho Law Review, the student representative to the Technology Committee, a Fellow for Academic Success in Property and Criminal law, a volunteer in the VITA Tax clinic, and as an interpreter for the Legal Aid Clinic. Alejandra was the President of the Latino/a Law Caucus during her third year in law school. As president, she helped organize the Othello Project, where students go to Othello, Washington, and provide a legal aid clinic to the farm workers. Alejandra collaborated with the NorthWest Immigration Rights Project and NorthWest Justice Project to provide information and resources to the farmworkers in Othello. Alejandra also worked in the Immigration Clinic as a legal intern, where she and a fellow student represented an asylum seeker at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

After earning her Juris Doctorate, Alejandra and her husband moved back to Washington. She worked as a Rule 9 Intern with North County Public Defense, where she assisted clients with misdemeanor criminal offenses prior to joining Whatcom Law Group.

Incredibly Thankful.
I am incredibly thankful for the exceptional representation provided by Alejandra in my immigration case. From the start, she demonstrated an in-depth understanding of immigration law and a genuine commitment to helping me navigate a complex legal process. Alejandra was not only knowledgeable but also empathetic, taking the time to address my concerns and explain each step of the process thoroughly. The communication was excellent, and I always felt well-informed about the progress of my case. Thanks to Alejandra, I achieved a positive outcome and obtained my citizenship. I highly recommend Alejandra to anyone in need of a compassionate immigration attorney.

"Alejandra and I went to law school together and worked together on the Idaho Law Review. Now I have the pleasure of practicing in the same community with her. She is insightful and capable while also bringing much needed emotional intelligence to the practice of law. I'd recommend Alejandra to anyone in need of a lawyer that will fill both roles of attorney/counselor."
Immigration Attorney | Nov 03
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"Alejandra is, simply put, brilliant and hardworking. I first met Alejandra many years ago, when she was a student and then as an immigration paralegal. Knowing her talent and her amazing performance in law school including arguing a case before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, I recruited her to join the Whatcom Law Group, PS. Whether it is estate planning, family law, or immigration - she is meticulous in finding solutions for her clients and fighting hard for them. Clients would be wise to keep Alejandra on speed dial and heed her advice."
