Founder and Directing Attorney
Emily Abraham has worked for underrepresented and low-income clients for years. As a founding director of SJC, she believes that advocacy is a natural means for her to continue her passion. Before law school, she was a paralegal at a small immigration law firm in San Francisco engaged primarily in defense of noncitizen clients and family law.
Emily also has extensive experience working with victims of domestic violence. As a certified domestic violence counselor, she incorporates her understanding of family law with immigration law to find immigration relief for individuals in crises. She attended Northeastern University School of Law, the nation’s leading public interest law school, to become an immigration lawyer.
Emily speaks Spanish and is the Probono Coordinator at the American Immigration Lawyers Association’s Northern California Chapter. She is a member of the California Bar and the Northern District of California.
