Curtis George White was attracted to UNM because of the dual degree program with Latin American Studies and the School of Law. He graduated from UNM with both his MA and his JD in 2006. The MALAS program helped him to learn Portuguese and expand his knowledge of Latin American politics and history, all of which have been helpful to him in his career as an immigration attorney handling several asylum cases. Curtis' immigration practice involves a variety of matters, including deportation defense, family-based petitions, consular processing, waivers, citizenship, work authorization, deferred action, asylum, visas for victims of crimes, appeals, etc.
