Sintia Solis was born in Veracruz, Mexico, soon after she was born her parents moved to Tamaulipas, Mexico, where the family built a home and settled down. A few years after she was born, Sintia's father realized that coming to the United States to work would be necessary to provide for his wife and daughter. He traveled back and forth from Mexico to the United States for work and his family soon grew by one more baby boy.
Under the Immigration Act of 1990, Sintia's parents decided to take the opportunity to permanently immigrate to the United States as a family. They were full of fears not knowing how they would make it in a foreign country. Especially because they did not know the language or culture, yet they were hopeful and looking forward to the "American dream'" of a better life for them and their children. Once in the United States the family lived in a tiny one bedroom apartment in a very low income area of Pasadena. Sintia soon started kindergarten and did not know a speck of English, she was in English as a Second Language classes for some years until she learned to speak, read and write English.
Thirteen years later, soon after high school, Sintia was a single mother. Nevertheless, she decided to start classes at a community college while working a full time job. She made up her mind that regardless of her circumstances she was not going to let her parents down after all their hard work and the sacrifices they had made to leave their home country and immigrate to the United States to give her a better life.
It was a long hard road for personal reasons, however, after much hard work and dedication Sintia graduated from the University of Houston Clear Lake. Sintia then worked as a realtor for a few years but she knew her heart and passion were always in the law. After her sons were old enough to all go to school she took the leap of faith and decided to do what she needed to do to apply for law school. Sintia was accepted to law school and as a mother of three boys managed to rank in the top ten percent of her class all three years and graduated law school Summa Cum Laude with honors. While in law school she took immigration courses and was also part of the criminal clinic. Sintia acquired dismissals for her clients even before graduating law school as a student attorney!
Sintia is now a proud mother of three wonderful sons and a pug. She is also the proud daughter of the most amazing and supportive parents. Her strong Christian faith is the foundation and strength that keeps her going every single day.
Sintia's personal experience as an immigrant herself and her own struggles in life; combined with her passion for justice and helping others, is the reason she is able to empathize with her clients and truly care about them and their loved ones.
