I’m the son of immigrants from Mexico, so immigration has always been personal for me.
In Mexico, my parents left school after the 5th grade to earn money for their families. After they married, they came to the U.S. to start a family. They wanted to provide their children better opportunities than they had available to them in Mexico. They wanted to give me and my siblings the opportunity to get an education and have a career.
When I was 11 years old, I began working for my dad, who had a gardening and landscaping company in Silicon Valley. Working alongside my dad’s employees, I saw that many of them felt like they were “less than” because of their immigration status. Their feeling of inferiority stuck with me. Legal documentation makes such a difference in people’s lives. I knew I wanted to give back to my community and help the people I was working alongside. I wanted to help people obtain a legal immigration solution.
I earned a bachelor’s degree in Latin American and Latino Studies/Politics at the University of California at Santa Cruz, which helped me understand my roots and reinforced my goal to become an attorney. I put myself through law school, working for a large business immigration law firm where I continued to work before joining the Alcorn Immigration Law team. At Alcorn, I have expanded my focus on employment-based immigration matters.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family. Before my daughter was born, I had a bit more time for hobbies: fishing, hiking, and riding my motorcycle.
