Loyola Immigrant Justice Clinic
Jaime Jimenez attended Loyola for the sole purpose of serving the immigrant community. During his tenure in the Loyola Immigrant Justice Clinic, he represented four unaccompanied children, a survivor of attempted murder, and an asylum seeker. When appearing in state court on behalf of his minor client, he was praised by the judge for having the comportment, dedication and work ethic of an accomplished attorney. He successfully appeared in state court on multiple occasions and was always successful in obtaining the necessary SIJS predicate orders. Most recently, Jaime is representing a family unit of three seeking asylum and is set to appear in court in May on their behalf with a compelling asylum application that includes multiple declarations drafted in Spanish and English, evidence secured from local and international agencies, and the completion of thorough investigation.
Jaime is a jack of all trades - admired by his peers, family and professors - who, in addition to dedicating his academic legal career to LIJC, works full time as an air traffic controller, is a devoted family man and an excellent baker. We are incredibly thankful for Jaime’s dedication and zealous advocacy. We look forward to seeing him flourish as an immigrant rights advocate!
