María Belén Albuja was born in Quito, Ecuador and came to Denver Colorado in 2003 with the dream of living and working in this country. Unlike most lawyers, María Belén Albuja felt firsthand the stress and fear of confronting the immigration system and starting from scratch.
Therefore, she has never forgotten her roots; she is proudly Ecuadorian, an immigrant and since 2008, a United States citizen.
María Belén Albuja studied at the Catholic University of Quito School of Law and has earned several postgraduate studies in Financial, International and Comparative Law.
Because of her academic record, bilingual skills, and work experience she had the opportunity to work in various law firms specializing in immigration in the City of Denver while attending law school at the University of Denver in Colorado where she received her law degree.
After passing the bar examination in Colorado, she opened the doors of ALBUJA LAW LLC in 2011. She is an active member of the Bar Association of Colorado, the Colorado Hispanic Bar Association and American Immigration Lawyers Association at the national and local level.
María Belén’s vision in the field of immigration law has always been to offer the best service to the immigrant community and educate them as well. She continuously participates in immigration conferences, gives community presentations, and actively participates in social networks.
