We are excited to share that Mary Tanagho Ross, a senior staff attorney with Public Counsel’s Immigrants’ Right Project, has been named as one of California’s top 40 lawyers under 40 by the Daily Journal. The annual list celebrates the achievements of lawyers under the age of 40 in California.

Mary has done extraordinary work on behalf of unaccompanied children, and her advocacy has enabled more than 2500 immigrant youth to receive important protections so that they can stay safe in the United States. We are so proud of Mary for her dogged efforts to pursue justice for immigrant youth. Her leadership inspires us to stay tenacious and resourceful in the fight for what's right. Thank you and congratulations Mary!

"In large part, the heroes here are the clients we serve, brave immigrant children and youth who are pursuing a life here in the United States, where they are safe from harm," Ross said.
