Asylum Attorney

Luis joined the Florence Project in October 2019 as the Asylum Attorney. An immigrant himself, Luis shares a deep passion for immigrant rights and is excited about the opportunity to advocate for our clients experiencing detention. Luis spent the majority of his childhood in Arizona, where he attended Grand Canyon University for his undergraduate studies. He later graduated from Baylor University School of Law, where he distinguished himself as a top courtroom and appellate advocate through trial advocacy and moot court programs, winning national titles and awards for his top-notch work. In his spare time, Luis enjoys spending time with his family and playing his violin around the valley with his mariachi group.
