About Alejandra Penilla

My name is Alejandra Penilla and I am a Litigation Paralegal at the Ramos Law Firm. I was originally born and raised in Colombia, South America, and moved to the United States in 2016. I completed my JD degree and was admitted to practice law in Colombia and have been working in the legal industry since 2015. I joined the Ramos Law Firm to expand my career field. I have spent the last 6 years working on Labor Law, Wage and Hour cases in California. I was admitted to take the California Bar exam and am currently interested in taking the Arizona Bar exam. While in Colombia I worked at the Colombian National Army providing legal advice on recruiting issues for citizens. I also worked for Transparency for Colombia, a company that handled government project fund audits and special social programs financed by the European Union. I truly believe that we all have amazing purposes on earth and having a good impact on people’s lives is definitely one of my purposes. I have two adorable dogs that are the owners of all my energy and love. We love camping, hiking, paddle boarding, and anything related to nature. My goal is to visit all National Parks. The world is beautiful, and I would love to visit every corner of it. As a proud Colombian, I am a hard-working person who loves to dance, cook, and spend time with my family and friends.
