SAN ANTONIO  Bracewell & Giuliani LLP announced today that Victoria M. Garcia has assumed the role of managing partner of the firm's San Antonio office, succeeding J. Tullos Wells. The appointment of Garcia is the second change in office leadership for the firm in 2010.

Garcia, who heads the firm's immigration practice, which is headquartered in San Antonio, has more than 20 years experience representing management in all aspects of immigration, labor and employment law. She was recently appointed to the Board of Directors of Port San Antonio, which serves as an aerospace complex, international airport and industrial hub on the site of the former Kelly Air Force Base. Garcia also served as the 2009 chairman of Free Trade Alliance San Antonio, the first woman to chair the public/private partnership responsible for promoting, developing and facilitating trade and international business for the entire San Antonio region.

Garcia earned her law degree at the University of Texas at Austin. She also has a Masters Degree in Public Affairs from the LBJ School of Public Affairs in Austin, and a Bachelors of Science (BSFS) degree from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service in Washington, D.C.

"Victoria is a great addition to our leadership team," said Bracewell & Giuliani Managing Partner Mark C. Evans. "We are excited about her plans for the San Antonio office, including expanding our aerospace and immigration practices, as well as continuing to strengthen our labor, litigation, public law, and real estate practices."

"It's invigorating to see women excelling in leadership roles at the firm," said former U.S. Congresswoman Susan Molinari, senior principal in the firm's government relations and strategic communications practice, headquartered in Washington, D.C. "I'm enormously proud of our efforts in that regard," Molinari said.
