He also serves as a panel attorney at the AIDS Legal Referral Panel (ALRP) and was awarded “Attorney of the Year” in 2016 by the AIDS Legal Referral Panel. He is also a mentor immigration attorney at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area and a member of Bay Area Lawyers for Individual Freedom (BALIF).
