Monterrey & Tellez Law Firm
Crissy MonterreyAfter graduating from Pulaski Academy and then Columbia University, Crissy Monterrey obtained her law degree from the UALR Bowen School of Law. She and her husband, Leo Monterrey, helped establish the Hispanic Law Students Association there and the organization's scholarship fund.
She began working at Mitchell Williams Selig Gates & Woodyard in 2006, where as an associate she counseled lenders, developers, retailers and investors in real estate and asset-based financing transactions, in addition to helping clients with their employment-based immigration issues. She left Mitchell Williams to join her husband at Monterrey & Tellez in February.
Monterrey said her greatest impact as a lawyer focusing on immigration law is helping both employers and families. She noted that several big Arkansas companies had international operations. Helping them solve employees' immigration problems is good not only for those firms and the employees but for the state's economy as well. Or, she said, "It could be getting legal documentation for a father of three U.S. citizens who's been here for 10 or 15 years and just hasn't known how to do it and knowing that he's not going to be separated from his kids."
Immigration work is "some of the most difficult work that I do but also some of the most rewarding."
