Yuri Paz is of Cuban origin, descendant of educators who dedicated their lives to education. In the same manner, they gave Yuri a foundation to be an excellent mother, wife, and exemplary immigrant.
She arrived in the United States on April 1995. Her intuition drove her to work in the area of customer service. After completing high school at The Family Learning Center of New York, she moved to Miami, Florida where she received training at the International Training Career for Medical Technician. Through her work, she reconfirmed that her vocation was customer service. Her professional passion was growing every day, and in her desire to continue to improve she enriched her ability to provide services. That is how she decided to enter the Florida Career College where she received her diploma as Medical Assistant, Billing and Coding.
For many years Yuri worked with Dr. Rodolfo A. Perez at the Health Network One Institute. Her experience serving the public gave her the opportunity to get close to the immigrant community, and in turn developed the opportunity to work alongside the renowned Maria D. Sheckels. And she became involved with the American Immigrant Legal Services, LLC. under the direction of Attorney Salomon Numa.
Yuri has become the right-hand of Attorney Numa and an ally of the immigrant community. The American Immigrant Legal Services’ clients see Yuri not just as a friendly person, but someone who truly connects and understands the solutions each of them seek in legal services.
