Raquel Aguirre

attorney at law

Born in El Paso, TX, and proudly raised in Juarez, CHIH., Raquel Aguirre Guerra grew up surrounded by the Mexican-American culture, which sensitized her about the problems that afflict the migrant community and inspired her to prepare professionally to make a difference. Having grown up in a family of lawyers who specialized in International Trade, Raquel opted to make her path staying true to her passion for serving her community. Motivated by this, she moved to Mexico City at the age of 17 to start her career in Law.

She became a licensed Attorney and graduated valedictorian from Universidad de las Americas, A. C., Ciudad de Mexico in 2013. At age 22 she started working at the National Institute for Transparency (INAI), an entity in charge of guaranteeing human rights, such as freedom of information and governmental accountability, where she worked on several projects subscribed by the Federal Mexican government and civil organizations advocating for human rights.

In 2016 she completed a Graduate degree with honors in Tax Law from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM).
In 2017 she received a Master’s degree in International and Comparative Law from Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, TX, and, afterward, she received her license to practice law in the State of Texas. Since then, she has worked for the migrant community.
During her free time, she enjoys practicing martial arts such as Muay Thai and Taekwondo. She is passionate about reading psychology and spirituality books, baking traditional Mexican bread, and musical composition.
