Before becoming interested in law, John worked as a field technician for wildlife biology studies. He also lived abroad teaching English. Since starting law school, he has worked with several organizations advocating for immigrants, including Lutheran Social Services, Safe Passage Project and New York Legal Assistance Group. Most of his experience has been working on Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and Asylum cases, primarily with Spanish speaking immigrants. He is excited to start working at Safe Horizon to provide support and pursue immigration relief for victims of crime and abuse both here in the United States and in their home countries.
