Attorney

Yarin’s conviction to help immigrants came from her experience as the daughter of Mexican immigrants. Her parents were able to naturalize and, thus, this opened a new world of possibilities for Yarin. Her community, mostly composed of immigrants, inspired her to pursue a law degree.

Before joining the Giron Kirby Law Group, Yarin worked in an immigration firm, where she represented individuals in all types of immigration matters.

While in law school, she worked as a student attorney for the South Texas Advanced Immigration Clinic where she helped low-income individuals in several proceedings. Further, she served as the Managing Editor of the South Texas Law Review. Yarin has also volunteered with Catholic Charities as a translator for several citizenship workshops.

Prior to law school, Yarin worked as the Administrator for a non-profit organization, as well as a paralegal for a business law firm.

In her spare time, Yarin enjoys spending time with her wonderful husband and two dogs. She enjoys traveling and keeping active. She and her husband are the youth leaders at a small Hispanic church in Northwest Houston. She is a passionate advocate in Higher Education for the next generation of Hispanic Americans.
