Kristina Contreras is an Associate Immigration Attorney at Hernandez and Associates, P.C., where she practices immigration and removal defense. She is a second-generation American from a multicultural Asian/Hispanic background and originally studied Music and Lyrical Opera. It was her Apache grandfather who first suggested she apply her passion for advocacy to the law and when she volunteered as a Naturalization instructor at the Oxnard Mexican Consulate in her home state of California, she knew she had found her calling in immigration. Kristina attended William Mitchell College of Law in Minnesota where her passion became commitment while working as a Certified Student Attorney at the Immigration Law Center.

Throughout her career, she has grown her passion for advocacy and her commitment to serving those in need of immigration services.
