Ana Urgiles

Pro Bono Justice Program Associate
Why I work at OneJustice:

I work at OneJustice because of my belief that access to legal aid can be life changing, as it was in my family’s experience as first-generation immigrants. I am proud to be part of a team that empowers individuals and communities by promoting justice for all.

Professional Background:

Before joining OneJustice, I was a research assistant at the Freeman Spogli Institute where I focused on researching immigration policies and other issues concerning politics and democracies. During this time, my interest in public interest law also developed through my involvement at Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto where I helped document the experiences of survivors of violent crimes seeking asylum. Afterwards, I was a litigation paralegal in a Washington D.C. law firm representing sovereign states in human rights, commercial arbitration, and dispute resolution cases. I received my B.A. in Political Science from Stanford University.

I really love:

I love dancing to Latin American music, exploring restaurants in Chicago, listening to rap, learning French, and backpacking in California.
