As WLC’s Clinic Manager, Adriana coordinates WLC’s community-based legal services and helps recruit and train WLC volunteers.  Adriana also assists pro bono attorneys and staff attorneys on Wage and Hour, Workers’ Compensation, Consumer, and Record Clearance cases. Adriana first volunteered at WLC in 2009 as a legal interviewer and became a legal assistant in 2010. She has since trained dozens of volunteer interviewers. Outside of the WLC, Adriana’s passion for equal access inspired her to found Unidos por un Corazón Inocente (United for an Innocent Heart). As an immigrant mother of a child with autism, she is keenly aware of the lack of supportive services to families like her own and works to empower other parents. Adriana’s goal is to become a legal aid attorney. In 2014, Adriana received an Award of Merit from the Legal Aid Association of California for her work at WLC improving access to rural justice.
