Jesus Contreras

Legal Assistant

Jesus’ path in immigration began during his paralegal program at the University of California Riverside Extension Center, which he enrolled in after receiving his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from UCR. Coming from a first-generation family of Mexican immigrants, Jesus was witness to the immigrant experience firsthand. He grew up seeing the difficulties that his family faced in becoming naturalized and obtaining legal permanent residency in the United States, ultimately leading Jesus to become more intrigued with immigration law. Now, Jesus serves under our Removal Defense team helping others like his family achieve their immigration goals in the US.
