Meet Your Advocates

Attorney Michelle Stavros

As a zealous advocate for my clients, I’ve dedicated my practice to helping individuals and businesses with their immigration and employment needs. I strongly believe that good communication is the key to a successful outcome — so I focus on being an effective communicator who takes the time to teach clients about the process in a way they can understand.

I attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I received my bachelor’s degree in Spanish and sociology. During my college years, I worked for the Conference on World Affairs, designed and implemented programs in the community, and worked for the office of Judicial Affairs. After finishing undergraduate school, I began working with the immigrant population, seeing firsthand how this group of people was taken advantage of. That spurred me to attend law school at California Western School of Law in San Diego to fight against the injustices immigrants face. While in law school, I presided as the president of the Public Interest Law Foundation and received the Diversity Scholarship for my work promoting diversity.

I have a strong presence in the community through my involvement in community outreach and affiliation with legal associations. In addition to my volunteer work, I’m a guest instructor at Acceso Capacitación, where I train attorneys and judges throughout Latin America on trial skills so they can effect legal reform and transparency within their own judicial systems. I’ve also served as an adjunct law professor at the Universidad Autonomía de Baja California in Tijuana, Mexico
