Summary

Formerly a staff attorney with the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Washington in 2002 with a concentration in Comparative Politics. I received my Juris Doctorate from Seattle University School of Law in 2006. During law school, I served as the president of the Hispanic Organization for Legal Advancement and was a staff member on the Seattle Journal for Social Justice. During this time, I also co-authored an article with national minority voting rights expert Professor Joaquin Avila on noncitizen voting rights issues. I also wrote a policy brief on noncitizen voting rights in the Los Angeles area. I was admitted to the Washington State Bar in May 2007. I worked as a staff attorney with the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project in Tacoma, WA visiting detained individuals at the Northwest Detention Center, providing know-your-rights presentations as well as direct representation before the immigration court. I am experienced in immigration law and consumer protection issues involving the prosecution of notarios and other non-attorneys practicing law without a license.
