Sabrina Andrade, a native of San Diego, California, obtained her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, with a minor in Sociology, at the San Diego State University, before moving onto the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, where she obtained her juris doctor degree in 2016. While in law school, Sabrina also had the opportunity to study international law at the University of Nice, in France in 2014.
Sabrina gained exposure to immigration law, while participating at Thomas Jefferson’s Immigration Removal Defense Clinic, where she advocated for detained individuals seeking asylum in the United States. Before even graduating from law school, she was able to successfully obtain a grant of asylum for one of her clients in Otay Mesa’s Immigration Court. She continued her commitment to immigration law by interning at the American Bar Association’s Immigration Justice Project, where she provided pro bono legal assistance to detainees who are determined to have diminished mental capacity to represent themselves in immigration court.
Sabrina Andrade is a first-generation U.S. born citizen, and her passion for immigration law stems from her father, who is from Ecuador, and her mother, who immigrated from Mexico to the United States in the 1980’s. As a witness to the obstacles and hardship her family experienced within the complex U.S. immigration system, Sabrina is driven to dedicate her time and career to assisting individuals alike.
As an attorney, Sabrina handles family-based cases, humanitarian visa petitions, and defends foreign nationals in deportation proceedings in the immigration courts.
Sabrina is an active member, in good standing, of the state bar of California and American Lawyers Association. Sabrina is currently an immigration attorney in San Diego.
