Lazaro Luquin is a Paralegal at the Franco Law Group. He was born and raised in Los Angeles by immigrant parents looking for better living conditions and opportunities for their families. His father was born in Colima, Mexico, while his mother was born in La Union, El Salvador. Lazaro is the 2nd youngest out of 5 siblings. Throughout his childhood, Lazaro witnessed the challenges that were faced by the Latino and immigrant community, which led him to become an advocate for these populations.
Noting the discrimination and lack of opportunities available to his family given their foreign status motivated Lazaro to be the voice for underrepresented communities like his own. He obtained his BA in Criminal Justice from California State University, Los Angeles.
His primary focus was the discrimination that minorities, specifically Latinos, faced within the criminal justice system. His experiences throughout his youth, as well as the knowledge obtained during his undergraduate studies, led him to begin working in the legal sector. He was fueled to create change that led to equality and eliminated discrimination. He also took part in the Criminal Justice Student Association, which focused on the expansion of criminal justice knowledge and campaigns geared toward the dissemination of legal information and rights to community members.
Lazaro joined Franco Law Group in 2017. Throughout his time with the firm, Lazaro has gained knowledge with many aspects of immigration, ranging from family-based petitions to contested hearings on removability before the Executive Office of Immigration Review. Lazaro plans to attend law school to advance his understanding and power in law.
