Senior Paralegal
  • Profile

In 1981, at the suggestion of a friend, Irene delved into U.S. immigration law as a paralegal until she decided on a career path. Having worked in immigration law for 40 years, she has clearly found her career of choice.

Irene began her paralegal career with the Law Offices of Ronald H. Bonaparte, a firm practicing exclusively in the area of immigration law. In August 1985, she accepted a position as an immigration paralegal with the Law Office of Olivia T. Ibarra. From August 1989 to August 1994, she was employed as a paralegal by John C. Nelson, founding Chair of the Orange County Bar Association Immigration Law Practice Section. In August 1994, she joined the immigration law practice group at Bryan Cave LLP.

In September 1997, Ms. Lefebvre joined Paparelli & Partners LLP, an immigration law boutique firm in Irvine, California. In February 2002, she commenced employment as a paralegal at the Law Offices of Monica E. Lukoschek, which later evolved into U.S. Immigration Law Group, LLP in 2011.

She enjoys the challenges, the diversity, and the satisfaction of helping people to achieve their goals.
