Elora is Brazilian, born and raised in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. She immigrated to the United States with her family in 1998.

Her legal practice of immigration law is borne of her own immigration process, which has lasted over eighteen years.
Given her personal background and experiences as an immigrant, her belief in the pursuit of innovative opportunities and her passion for the law, Elora dedicates her career to assisting clients who intend to immigrate to the United States, with who she is able to empathize and share in their worries and uncertainties naturally deriving from the immigration experience.
