Ketlyn DePaula
Paralegal (USCIS and Criminal Defense)

Ketlyn comes to Massa Viana Law after 14 years of experience managing the legal and administrative work of another law firm, where she started as a receptionist and quickly moved through the ranks into the managerial position, supervising the firms’ work in Criminal Defense and Personal Injury matters.

She moved to Framingham when she was 11 years old from Parana, Brazil. She attended Keefe Technical High School and graduated with honors in 2004. And although she spent most of her life in Framingham, her own life story as immigrant made moving into the field of Immigration law a natural transition.

At Massa Viana, Ketlyn specifically handles our in-country Green Card applications and Consular Processing, and also assists with the firms’ criminal defense caseload.

Ket prides herself in making sure our clients understand every step in their case and stay updated with what it is needed to quickly move their cases through the governmental maze, be it in Immigration or State Courts.

She if fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish. In her private time, Ket loves to cook, garden with her mom, and spend time with other family and friends and her animal companions:  Bia—her bull terrier—, and two other dogs, Dakota and Moose, and the many chickens, ducks and bunnies in her family’s western Massachusetts home.
