Sonia M. Lopez was born and raised in Michigan. While completing her undergraduate studies in Liberal Arts and Human Resources, Sonia worked in the healthcare industry for several years.

During law school, Sonia obtained experience as a law clerk for a Michigan district court judge and a governmental agency. She served as a research assistant for a law school professor, worked at her law school library where she became familiar with legal resources and periodic updates, and completed an externship assisting general counsel in the private sector. Sonia also served as president of the Saint Thomas More Society, a student organization inspired by St. Thomas More, the patron saint of lawyers.
