Cristina Andrade (Associate Attorney)

Cristina Andrade joined the Friedman Law Firm team in May of 2014. She earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Florida, and her Juris Doctorate at the McGeorge School of Law, California.


Ms. Andrade was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador. As a teenager, she immigrated with her family to the United States. Her bicultural upbringing has provided her with a unique perspective and sensitivity towards issues within developing nations and immigrant populations. This perspective has allowed her to relate to our clients’ difficulties and struggles as they navigate the confusing and anxiety producing immigration process.

Before joining the Friedman Law Firm, Ms. Andrade worked at the McGeorge Immigration Clinic where she processed various types of Immigration applications for those seeking legal status in the United States. At the Friedman Law Firm, Ms. Andrade provides clients with assistance on a wide-range of immigration issues, such as asylum, removal defense, and visa applications.
