Our founder, Bernadette “Ginger” McGuire, has over 20 years of experience with a broad range of challenging immigration cases. Her command of immigration law and emphasis on personal service has achieved results for clients across the country and overseas. Over the past 7 years Ginger has become an expert on the intersection between immigration law and domestic matters in Colorado. This niche area of law has enabled her to approach family law matters in a unique and compassionate way with the goal of empowering her clients. Staying ahead of the law’s frequent changes is Ginger’s passion and practice.
Ginger founded McGuire Law in 2006. Her family’s journey to the United States inspired her to focus her passion for helping others on immigrants. Through her work with non-profits Ginger realized that she could effectively serve immigrants in family court, and has pivoted her practice to specialize in the intersection between immigration and domestic matters. She also has a passion for litigation in complex immigration cases having success before the Executive Office for Immigration Review, the Board of Immigration Appeals, and several Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals.
Ginger has served as an elected officer of the American Immigration Lawyers Association Colorado Chapter (2006-2010) and served as Chapter President in 2009-2010. She also served as an elected officer of the New Members Division of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Ginger has served as agency liaison on behalf of the Colorado Chapter to the Denver Executive Office for Immigration Review and to the GEO Detention Facility in Aurora, Colorado. She is a frequent national speaker for the American Immigration Lawyers Association on complex family based immigration and litigation issues.
