I have been in the practice of law for nearly 15 years. In 2007, I co-founded a private firm, which prides itself in its pro bono policy, and service to grassroots communities. My current involvements include community organizing and policy-advocacy which I undertake as a congressional chief of staff, and education and training initiatives on current pressing human rights issues and concerns in the country.
