Law Graduate, Phoenix

Anthony Galvez joined the Florence Project in October 2019. His father immigrated to the United States during El Salvador’s civil war. As such, Anthony recognizes the complex nature of our legal system and the importance of legal representation for immigrants. Growing up, he had the opportunity to live in several states because his father served in the US Air Force; however, Anthony considers Arizona to be his home. After high school, he volunteered for two years to serve a humanitarian/ecclesiastical mission in Argentina. Upon returning to the United States, Anthony received his B.A. in Political Science from Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. After college, he attended Creighton University School of Law in Omaha, Nebraska. While attending law school, he worked as a legal clerk for the US Air Force Jag Corps and for a law firm that specialized in property law. Anthony also had the opportunity to work at Creighton’s Immigrant and Refugee Clinic where he developed a passion for providing legal assistance to the most vulnerable communities. In his free time, he loves to run races and spend time with his family.
