Terja Bouvin Larsen is the owner and Managing Attorney of Bienvenidos Law Firm, Inc. Bienvenidos Law Firm, Inc. is a for-profit community law office that provides culturally sensitive and Spanish language appropriate legal services exclusively in the area of immigration law.
Terja graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls with a BS in both Spanish and Mathematics in 1998. During the summers of 1998 and 1999, she worked as an advocate for migrant workers in West-Central Minnesota with Migrant Legal Services, based out of Saint Paul, Minnesota. Through her work with Migrant Legal Services, she fell in love with working with immigrants and specifically the immigration portion of her work and her career was born. She then went to law school specifically to become an immigration attorney.
She loves seeing families grow and strengthen in the security of gaining immigration status in the United States. She also loves getting to know extended families over the years as family members gain immigration status, become United States Citizens and bring more family members to the United States.
During law school, starting in the year 2000, Terja became a law clerk at Centro Legal, Inc., which was a non-profit law firm that served low income Latinos. She worked there through law school in their immigration unit. Later, in 2002, she became a staff attorney specifically focusing on the caseload involving domestic violence victims and victims of crime. While she loved her work at Centro Legal, she craved a change in lifestyle and made the decision to leave in 2006 to start her own practice Bienvenidos Law Firm, Inc. in the area of immigration law.
Through their growth, they have never lost sight of their mission to provide quality immigration legal services at a reasonable price and always remaining accessible to all. Most clients at Bienvenidos Law Firm, Inc. come to us through referrals from past and present clients, which is a testament to our service and our hearts. In the end, the reason we do this work is to see families grow and prosper through the security of gaining immigration status in the United States.
