Cynthia Martinez – Lead Paralegal

Cynthia Martinez was born in Nuevo Leon, Mexico, the middle child of three. She immigrated to the United States with her family when she was two. Her parents instilled upon her a love for knowledge, all types of knowledge. In 2011, Ms. Martinez got involved with the NC Dream Team and through her activism committed acts of civil disobedience in Charlotte, NC and then again in 2012 at the NC General Assembly.


Ms. Martinez discovered her passion for law after working in her first legal position. Her fervor only grew, after joining another firm in 2014, where she spent a lot of time learning about the Federal Justice system. Ms. Martinez found that she excelled in learning how the system worked, primarily in the Eastern District of North Carolina; and was mentored by an exceptionally intelligent attorney, who also instilled in her a thirst for knowledge and a conviction in always finding a way to help clients. After many trials and tribulations, as well as a mass amount of learning and experiences, Ms. Martinez left that office in 2019 with a wealth of knowledge under her belt. Shortly after, Ms. Martinez began employment with a nonprofit organization that has a rapid response system for people detained at Jackson Parish, LA. It was here, that Ms. Martinez heard the terrifying stories of many individuals, and how they were fleeing from: violence, death threats, sexual exploitations, and many other horrors at the hands of other people in their home countries. Under the guidance of an attorney, Ms. Martinez was able to successfully assist a Nicaraguan national seeking political asylum in this country, win his case, and be allowed refuge in this country. It was one of Ms. Martinez's most proud moments. Ms. Martinez currently works as a paralegal at Bashi Law, PLLC.
