About Me

Ms. McIntyre realized her passion for U.S. immigration law at an early age. Ms. McIntyre observed the challenges her mother faced as her mother began immigrating her siblings from Vietnam to the United States in the early 1980s. Ms. McIntyre began practicing immigration law in 2003, when she became a staff attorney for a local non-profit organization that focused on providing low-cost and effective legal representation to undocumented immigrants. Ms. McIntyre moved into private practice in May 2004 when she joined a full-service immigration firm in Dallas, Texas. Ms. McIntyre became a senior associate of this firm in 2005 and remained in this position until 2008. Ms. McIntyre has also served as an expert witness on the practice of immigration law for the State of Texas. Ms. McIntyre is admitted to practice in Texas and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas. She is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Tarrant County Bar Association and Dallas Bar Association. Ms. Maria McIntyre was born near Columbus, Ohio in 1975. Her mother is of Vietnamese descent and immigrated to the United States in the late 1960s. Ms. McIntyre has resided in the Dallas- Fort Worth area since childhood. She graduated with honors from Texas Christian University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Political Science. In 2002, Ms. McIntyre earned her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law. Ms. McIntyre has extensive experience in many facets of U.S. immigration law. Her practice initially focused on H-2A Agricultural and H-2B Seasonal Visas. Ms. McIntyre’s expertise quickly expanded to include deportation defense (including bond redetermination hearings, cancellation of removal, asylum, withholding of removal, and relief under the Convention Against Torture), family-based immigration (including adjustment of status, conditional residence, and immigrant visas), citizenship and naturalization, relief under the Violence Against Women’s Act (VAWA), deferred action, nonimmigrant visas, humanitarian relief attained from Citizenship and Immigration Services (C.I.S.) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.), and federal court representation.
