Hailing from Caracas, Venezuela, Veronica Macias is working toward her goal of becoming an Immigration lawyer at UCF. Majoring in Legal Studies with a minor in Criminal Justice, Veronica hopes to one day start an Immigration law firm with her mother, so she can help other families come to the United States just as she and her family did.
A proud member of the UCF Mock Trial Team, Veronica put her high school Mock Trial experience to work, and was elected to the seat of Vice President in the program. In high school, Veronica’s aptitude for Mock Trial showed, and her team became the first team to break the ten-year consecutive win streak of the previous championship school. Veronica’s work at Gurney Law includes her incredible translation skills, as well as managing multiple office and client-related matters.
