Claimed Lawyer Profile

As the managing partner in Novo Legal Group's Washington Office, Luis Cortes Romero focuses exclusively on immigration litigation. With extensive experience in trial and appellate cases, Luis has tackled a wide variety of immigration-related matters, including constitutional issues, immigration detention challenges, immigration consequences of criminal convictions, and waivers of inadmissibility. His expertise extends to high-profile constitutional litigation involving equal protection and due process claims, as well as representation in governmental investigations.

A DACA recipient himself, Luis made a significant impact as co-counsel in the landmark case DHS v. Regents of the University of California, which led the US Supreme Court to strike down the Trump administration's decision to end DACA. In addition to his legal practice, Luis serves as an adjunct professor of law at the University of Minnesota Law School and a board member of the National Immigration Project.

At Novo Legal Group, Luis remains committed to impact litigation and passionately advocates for expanding immigrant rights and protections across the United States.
