Background: As the son of two Immigrants from Jalisco, Mexico, immigration has always been of particular interest to Carlos.  He was born and raised in southern California in a traditional Catholic family where he helped to support his family by working alongside them in his family’s gardening business. From a young age he was introduced to the concept of immigration law when he learned that many of his family members could not cross between the United States and Mexico as easily as he could. This concept triggered a lifelong interest in the United States’s immigration policies and a desire to help individuals who, like his family, seek peaceful and productive lives here in the United States. he completed his Undergraduate education at Cerritos Community College and the University of California, Irvine. He received his B.A. in Criminology, Law and Society, with a minor in Political Science in 2009. He earned his J.D. at the University of Utah in 2013. 


Experience: While studying law at the University of Utah, Carlos took part in a number of unique educational experiences. He clerked for the Federal Defender’s Office for the State of Utah – Appellate Division, and the Executive Office for Immigration Review under Judges Nixon and Pead. Throughout law school Carlos also participated in the Immigration and Family law clinics, generated over 150 Hours of pro bono service. In addition, his professional experience includes working for the law firm of Ishola-Tarin, PLLC for nearly 3 years, between May 2012 and April 2014. At Ishola-Tarin he had the unique benefit of learning from and directly assisting the managing partners, Hakeem Ishola and Aaron Tarin, in their various areas of immigration and criminal practice. Carlos has been an an associate at Ishola Law Group since it’s inception in April 2014.

5 stars is an understatement!
Carlos helped my wife and I with our very complex immigration case. I was blown away with how knowledgeable he is and how he genuinely cares about people. He was very reasonably priced and easy to reach when he was needed. When you meet Carlos, you know he is an attorney for the right reason, to help people in need. Thanks again Carlos!

Excellent Immigration Attorney
Carlos is an excellent immigration attorney. I consulted with him on an legal issue that had been worrying me for months. He not only gave me the answers that I needed, but he also gave me additional advice to help me with the entire application process. The reason I decided to go to him for help was because of his reputation as a top immigration lawyer who genuinely cares about his clients. I would recommend him to anyone who wants honest, helpful advice.

He is professional, but down-to-earth. Likable by clients and attorneys alike. You would be lucky to have this hard worker at your side."
