Ms. Bazzi holds a Masters Degree in Second Language Studies from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

Ms. Corona was born to Mexican parents on the White Sands Missile Range located just outside Alamogordo, New Mexico. As a child of a member of the U.S. military, she has lived in different parts of the world, such as Germany, Oklahoma, and El Paso, Texas and has family on both sides of the U.S. border. Her diverse background allows her to relate and work with clients with limited English skills and unfamiliarity with U.S. laws and American customs. Ms. Corona is fluent in Spanish and has a reputation for effectiveness and rapport with clients, particularly among Spanish-speaking immigrants whose initial immigration applications were rejected.
Ms. Corona was the first in her family to attend college. She attended George Mason University and majored in religion. While in college, she taught English classes and tutored students seeking GEDs. She later attended University of the District of Columbia - The David A. Clarke School of Law on scholarship and was a member of the University of the District of Columbia law review.
Ms. Corona chose to become an immigration attorney so she could help people navigate the immigration system, as so many of her family members have done. Her commitment as an advocate for immigrants is grounded in her belief that the American Dream should be accessible. She supports extending the eligibility of asylum and wrote a law review article on extending asylum for Mexican crime victims.
Ms. Corona is dedicated to helping clients through the overwhelming and confusing experience of immigration applications and denials. In carrying out her legal tasks, Ms. Corona uses plain language to explain the law and the immigration process, the consequences of clients’ decisions, and the potential legislation. Accordingly, she provides an empathetic and complete counseling that includes the high stakes involved—the lives and futures of individual persons and their families, here and abroad.
