Attorneys Keren Barrios and Jorge Virgüez know firsthand that the world’s most vulnerable can become a target for those who only want to benefit from their pain and loss.
When Barrios was 10 years old, she was kidnapped in Guatemala.
“The experience that I lived during those 13 days was very intense and painful,” Barrios says. “It marked my life forever. I promised to myself that, as long as I could have the strength, I was going to help the most helpless, and that became my motivation to study law.
Being a native Venezulan and coming from a large family, Jorge Virgüez strives to see justice with keeping families together and always rooting for the underdog. Being an immigrant in this country has its own hardships and fighting for the rights of others is vital. He expresses how he hates to see “how some professionals take advantage of the vulnerability of others. I’ve witnessed many situations where people are treated unfairly because they are immigrants. Likewise, I’ve observed closely how some people take advantage of their clients by charging them more than what the law allows. This has been my big motivator to study law.”
