Also an active pro bono attorney, Ms. Aviad has worked on a variety of matters, with a focus on defending immigrant clients against deportation. In a case involving an immigrant juvenile who suffered from abuse and neglect in his home country, Ms. Aviad successfully petitioned for extraordinary relief in the form of a writ of mandamus from the California Court of Appeal, reversing a judge’s decision denying jurisdiction to consider findings that would make the juvenile eligible for immigration relief. The case is currently taught in training seminars on defending immigrant juveniles against deportation, and serves as persuasive authority on the issue.
