Isabel M. Hidrobo has over 18 years of experience in the field of immigration law. As an expert in the field, she has successfully managed her own practice since 2008. She advises clients ranging from multinational corporations to small start-ups and individuals in connection with the temporary and permanent employment of foreign nationals in the fields of fashion, arts, and entertainment. Her clients include celebrities as well as numerous top ranked talent management companies in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
A new American, Isabel was born in Ecuador and immigrated to Austin, Texas with her family as a child. Music and art played a special role in Isabel’s life growing up and artists continue to remain in her surrounding professionally and personally. As a child, Isabel took piano lessons, sang in her high school choir, and was an avid handbell performer. Today, Isabel works closely with artists in her legal practice, helping them attain work authorization in the United States so that they can pursue their artistic and professional dreams in the U.S. She is thrilled that her daughter, who is 9 years old, has a passion and talent for singing.
Isabel received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, where she majored in Economics and Comparative Area Studies. She obtained her Juris Doctor degree from The George Washington University Law School in Washington, DC.
Isabel strongly believes that children should have an affordable and accessible outlet for arts education. To help further this passion and bring more opportunity to children in traditionally underserved urban areas, Isabel decided to join the Board of the Bronx School for Music as one of its founding members in January 2021. Isabel is also a board member of the Georgie Badiel Foundation which aims to provide clean water and sanitation to the people of Burkina Faso.Back
