Before going to law school, Jesus worked in the Dallas office of the the large national law firm, Akin Gump Straus Hauer & Feld, and as an immigration paralegal at the Dallas law firm of Reina & Associates working primarily on family-based immigration cases.  We are please to welcome Jesus to The DOMA Project.
