My passion has been to serve immigrants for decades as an ESL and citizenship professor, Director of the Catholic Charities Immigration Program, Director of Santa Clara County Citizenship and Immigrant Programs, interim director of SIREN, and now head of the Immigration Law Center.
My desire to help others means that my goal is not to become rich, but to feel rich by helping others at reasonable rates. That’s why my name is Rich Hobbs!
My goal is to possess outstanding skills to win your case. As an immigration attorney for 22 years with Master’s degrees from San Jose State and the UNAM in Mexico and a Juris Doctor in Law from Golden Gate University, you can be sure of the highest quality and maximum effort to win your immigration case. To understand your background I have studied or worked in many countries, including India, China, Spain, Italy, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Mexico, and most of Latin America.
I am the Policy Advocacy Chair of the Silicon Valley Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and have worked without stop for immigrant and human rights, including comprehensive immigration reform. As the Executive Director of Human Agenda and the Coordinator of Santa Clara County Move To Amend, I work tirelessly for social change so that the human needs of immigrants and everyone can be met.
With all humility I look forward to working with you.
Richard Hobbs, Esq.
