Carmen Iguina Gonzalez is a trial and appellate lawyer with substantive experience gained from serving clerkships in the Supreme Court of the United States and several federal courts.

Carmen also worked at the ACLU of Southern California, where she litigated landmark immigrants' rights and criminal justice cases, including Franco v. Holder, the first case to establish a right to appointed legal representation for any group of immigrants facing deportation, and class action lawsuits on behalf of pro se children in deportation proceedings, asylum seekers fleeing persecution who had faced months of detention awaiting reasonable fear determinations, and thousands of Los Angeles residents who were unfairly subjected to restrictive "gang injunctions" without due process by police and prosecutors. She also helped to increase access to counsel for immigrants facing deportation through the establishment of the L.A. Justice Fund and expansion of One California, having served on the steering committee for the California Coalition for Universal Representation.

Carmen was named a 2016 California Lawyer of the Year and received the 2014 Jack Wasserman Memorial Award from the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
