DALLAS – Hamilton Wingo, LLP attorney Laura Andrade was featured in The Texas Lawbook, an electronic publication focusing on lawyers who represent businesses in litigation, transactional and regulatory matters in Texas. The publication featured the Dallas-based attorney’s commentary on Border Heritage as a focus for Hispanic Heritage Month. Laura reflects on growing up in El Paso, Texas, with family on both sides of the border and its impact on her legal career.
«I observed many families divided between two countries,» says Laura. «I reflect upon how my background motivated me to be an attorney, and I appreciate how it has made me a better attorney. I have always been driven to pursue a career to help people, especially those who feel invisible, like immigrants or women of color. My heritage is just as much a piece of me as my hard work, my studies, and the long hours that have brought success to me and my clients.»
Latin-American people and culture represent one of the native, original groups in Texas. This heritage is fluid as it both continues to grow in size and influence, but also constantly affects and incorporates the rest of the state’s culture to build a larger and more diverse world. Just like Laura, Hamilton Wingo, LLP takes pride in our diversity, and celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month together to help illustrate the importance of embracing many voices.
