There are many immigrants in Los Angeles who are living with HIV and AIDS. Some are undocumented new arrivals, often fleeing persecution in their home countries, and the AIDS Legal Services Project stands by HIV+ immigrants every step of the way. Others have lived here for a long time and contracted HIV in the United States.

With the assistance of Davina Bernal, Griselda Muñoz, Lizeth Garcia, Socorro Reyes and Maria Carranza, he has handled more than 40 pro bono cases for undocumented victims of crimes who are seeking UVISAS and permanent residency status.
