Immigration Attorney Christina Marie Foliacci, Esq.

Christina Marie Foliacci became an Associate Attorney at the Joli Law Firm in September of 2018. Given Christina’s Cuban, Italian, and Spanish heritage, immigrant rights and advocacy interested her from an early age.

Christina completed her undergraduate education at the University of Florida, where she majored in English. Christina’s involvement in Chispas, a student organization that advocates for immigrants and farmworkers’ rights, amplified her desire to pursue a career in law in order to help address the needs of the immigrant community.

Christina graduated with her Juris Doctor from St. Thomas University School of Law in 2017. Among her endeavors as a law student, Christina served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Judge David Haimes; worked as a Research Assistant to Professor Stephen Plass; served as a staff editor on the Intercultural Human Rights Law Review; and competed in the nationally recognized Jessup Competition as a member of the International Moot Court.

During Christina’s last year of law school, she fortified her passion for immigration law when she served as a Law Student Representative for the law school’s renowned Immigration Clinic. Christina’s responsibilities included managing cases of clients who were in removal proceedings, such as asylum applicants and cancellation of removal recipients. One of the most rewarding experiences during her time with the Immigration Clinic was advocating for a client’s successful return to the United States after being erroneously removed to his home country.

Christina feels honored to be part of a profession that directly impacts the lives of individuals and families in need.
