Roxie brings a wealth of experience to her Walsh Gallegos representation of school districts and school boards. In the three years before joining Walsh Gallegos, Roxie worked as an immigration attorney representing individuals and businesses with every facet of immigration from deportation litigation to helping people become citizens of the United States. The rules and policies in immigration changed every day and Roxie was ready to return to her first joy, school law. Before working in immigration, Roxie was a partner for a private law firm in New Mexico representing unions and public school employees in employment, civil rights, and litigation for 13 years. During that time, Roxie represented clients at school board hearings, in bargaining matters (arbitrations and mediations), before the NM Public Employee Labor Relations Board, New Mexico Human Rights Bureau, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, in district courts across New Mexico, and in NM Federal Court, NM Court of Appeals and NM Supreme Court. Roxie is also an Adjunct Professor at the University of New Mexico School of Law.
Roxie earned her legal degree from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque in 2004 and her undergraduate degree from New Mexico State in international business and economics. Born in Las Cruces, New Mexico and raised on a ranch outside of the big city of Hatch, New Mexico, Roxie is a native New Mexican who is dedicated to her community.
