Working with a wide variety of clients on immigration, visa, and translation issues, there is very little that this legal powerhouse and her business cannot handle. Beginning her journey in 1990, Marla first graduated with a degree in Law from the University of Valencia in 1995. She studied how to be a judge from 1995-1999 in Valencia with a Prosecutor learning in private classes, as she thought it was hard to be a Judge as civil servant, she gave one year off. Having graduated, Marla then went on to continue plying her trade across the world. In Switzerland, she learned from The Court of First Instance à Le Chateau, in Porrentruy. In 2004, she went on to graduate with a Master’s degree in Law and Business in Valencia, but when she earned her degree understood that her position was the same as other lawyers, so she asked and was interviewed by the Woman Institute in Valencia and was chosen to receive an entrepreneur course supported by the European Union funds and obtained a further degree by the Business School EOI as winner of an award as women entrepreneur, then move to the United States where she learned for a time with Kavanagh Maloney & Osnato LLP in Manhattan, New York. Then in 2006, the Spanish Ministry of Economy (ICO) chose her for a grant at the UIBE, University of Business and Economy located in Beijing to study economics, Chinese language and human resources, then she by herself obtained another degree in Law from the People’s Republic of China issued by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
