Irene Bustos

Irene was born in Guerrero, Mexico and came to the U.S. as an illegal immigrant at the age of three along with her four siblings. She was able to adjust her status and become a Legal Permanent Resident as a derivative of a VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) applicant. Working with immigration on a personal matter peaked her interest on helping her fellow people – immigrants.

Determined, she obtained her GED and worked to better herself. Her opportunity came with Sobel and Erwin and she took every advantage of it. She immersed herself in immigration and fell in love with her work and the opportunity to help others. She does that every day.

Irene Bustos joined Sobel and Erwin, PLLC in October 2012, when it was established as a Professional Limited Liability Partnership. She started as a bilingual receptionist and quickly learned the importance of Immigration law as she, herself, was a second-generation immigrant.

In January of 2018, Irene was promoted to become the paralegal for David L. Sobel. She is his right hand; an essential team player for Sobel and Erwin. She is passionate about wanting positive results for the firm clients. Irene enjoys the individuality and challenges of each and every case.

In March of 2018, Irene was sworn in as a United States Citizen and has given her solemn oath for this country that she calls home. Having first hand experience on the feelings of accomplishing something so great for herself, she has become inspired for helping others obtain these achievements. The feeling is unexplainable, yet rewarding.  

Irene enjoys working for such an amazing firm. She will be forever grateful to Attorneys Sobel and Erwin for giving her the opportunity to become part of the team. She considers the firm her second family.
