August 02, 2018

Alexander Cardenas had joined Justice for Our Neighbors as an attorney.

Cardenas was born and raised in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. After graduating from Colegio Marista de Guaynabo, he pursued a college education at Villanova University majoring in Finance.

While at Villanova, he started to realize that he wanted to help others pursue their dreams in the United States. After graduation, he began his legal studies at Creighton University School of Law. While at Creighton, he completed a masters in Government and Leadership because of his desire to know more about the processes of the US government and to gain leadership traits. He was able to work at an Immigration law firm in Omaha where his passion to help others pursue their dreams in the US was finally met. Once he graduated from Law School, he moved to Des Moines and accepted a position with Iowa Justice for Our Neighbors.

"JFON encompasses all of the ideals of justice and equality that I have always thought the US stood for. I am beyond excited to start working and helping others fulfill their dreams and get the best representation they deserve during these times in the United States," said Cardenas.
