Congratulations to one of our partners! Angela Torregoza has been selected to the 2019 New York Metro Rising Stars list, an honor reserved for those lawyers who exhibit excellence in practice. Only 2.5% of attorneys in New York Metro receive this distinction.
The first iteration of a new alumni engagement initiative united alums working in solo and small firms for CUNY School of Law’s first practice group meeting on May 23, hosted at CUNY Law Works at 2 Court Square. Leading the group is alumna Angela Torregoza, (‘12) who recently launched a boutique immigration law practice in Long Island City with fellow alumnus Amir Rasoulpour (‘12).
AMIR RASOULPOUR and ANGELA TORREGOZA, chapter members of the New York Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) traveled to Washington, D.C., and visited Congressional offices to share the contributions of immigrants to our state with members of Congress and explain the impact of the anti-immigrant policies implemented by the Trump administration.
Our event, #ImmiGreat, an art exhibit celebrating the immigrant experience, was featured by visual artist, Sarah Goodchild Robb on her blog. Here's an excerpt
