Juan Cabrales

Juan M. Cabrales received his bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University in 2015. As the proud son of Mexican immigrants and a first generation American, Juan is dedicated towards providing indigent and marginalized communities access to quality legal representation. As an undergraduate student, Juan worked on several public health research studies focused on mitigating health disparities among Latinx communities. He has served as a case manager for unaccompanied minors, working towards the goal of reunifying families across the U.S. He then transitioned into immigration law, providing direct legal services for immigrants seeking a secure and stable life in the U.S. Juan joined EBCLC’s Clean Slate Practice in 2018 with the goal of growing and shaping EBCLC’s first “Crimmigration” program. He hopes the program will allow indigent immigrants the opportunity to overcome barriers created by their criminal records and access to specialized representation that is often not an option for low-income individuals. In his spare time, Juan enjoys reading and exploring the great outdoors.
