Judge (Ret.) Anne C. Dranginis Comments on DACA Student Seeking Admission To Connecticut Bar

The Washington Post

Judge (Ret.) Anne C. Dranginis of Pullman & Comley’s Family Law Practice was quoted in “‘Dreamers’ Are Getting Law Degrees, and Taking on the System,” an article written in The Washington Post about law student Denia Perez, who was brought to the US from Mexico illegally by her parents when she was 11 months old. Perez is currently seeking admission to Connecticut’s bar. Most states require that practicing lawyers be U.S. citizens or have legal residency status.

Perez testified before a committee of the Connecticut bar, seeking a rule change that would allow her to practice law. In the article, Dranginis commented, “I was very impressed with (Perez’s) diligence, her intellect and her commitment to not only her legal studies, but what she envisioned for herself in being helpful to people who are underserved in our community.”
