Margarita Manduley was born in Cuba and inmigrated to the United States as a child. She received her Bachelors of Arts degree from the University of Southern California and her juris doctor from Loyola Law School.
Margarita practices immigration law exclusively. Before opening her law firm with her partner, Mariela Camissasa, Margarita worked as a detention attorney for the Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC), a non profit organization that offers pro bono legal assistance to detainees in removal proceedings.
Margarita is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). She is also a member of the Executive Committee of the Los Angeles County Bar Association. (LACBA).
Attorney Manduley has been admitted to the California Supreme Court, the United States District Court for the Central District of California, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Margarita has received numerous certificates of recognition from community organizations for her work and commitment to immigrant communities.
As an immigrant, Margarita understands the suffering of those that come to the United States in search of freedom and a better life for themselves and their loved ones. As a wife and mother, she recognizes that each case represents the future of an entire family. For that reason, each client is treated, not as one more file, but as a person whose life will be affected by the outcome of his or her immigration case.
