The Matian Firm dba La Liga Defensora is proud to announce the appointment of Attorney Frances Arroyo
Attorney Frances Arroyo is a Board Certified Expert in Immigration & Nationality Law. She is a graduate of American University (BA, 2007) and attended Thomas Jefferson School of Law where she obtained her law degree with a specialty in Global Legal Studies in 2010. During law school, Attorney Arroyo served as a student representative with Casa Cornelia, the ACLU, and the American Bar Association Immigrant Justice Project. She also worked with human rights organizations and nonprofits to defend against the rampant inequities in the immigrant community. Through her involvement in trafficking cases, removal defense, and legal activism in Law School, Mrs. Arroyo decided that her passion for immigrant rights would be best served within the practice of immigration law.

Attorney Arroyo has devoted her legal career to helping hundreds of immigrants across the U.S. legalize their status. Specifically, Mrs. Arroyo has focused her practice on removal and deportation defense along with the Federal District Court, the Board of Immigration Review, USCIS, and the State Department, among other agencies. Admitted to the State Bar of California in 2011, Attorney Arroyo has passionately and effectively advocated for the immigrant community in the U.S. and has been invited by the State Bar of California to participate in the drafting program for the State Bar of California Legal Specialization Examination. Throughout her career, she has aimed to educate immigrants about their rights and obtain the best and safest legal resolution in their cases. Mrs. Arroyo has taken on complex immigration cases like claims to U.S. citizenship, appeals with the Board of Immigration Appeals on Due Process issues, Relief under Asylum, Withholding of Removal, and Article III of the Convention Against Torture, among other expert-level matters. She prides herself on being an ethical and proactive counselor who is devoted to the defense of immigrants in the U.S.
