In 2008, Attorney Valdez Navarro attended Southwestern Law School, where she co-founded and became president of the Immigration Law Student Association. She also participated in the school's immigration law clinic, where she helped low-income families apply for immigration status at no cost.
During law school, Attorney Valdez Navarro became a law clerk for the Los Angeles County Bar Association, Immigration Project, as well as the HIV and AIDS Legal Service Alliance, where she was able to provide many low-income families with free immigration services. In 2012, Attorney Valdez Navarro was admitted to the State Bar of California and began her practice as an associate attorney at an immigration law firm.

With many years of immigration experience and after many successfully approved immigration cases, Attorney Valdez Navarro decided to open the Law Office of Cynthia I. Valdez Navarro in Torrance, California, to continue to fight for those who want to achieve their American Dream.
