Lizbeth HernandezPhyllis Ling
Lizbeth Hernandez was born and raised in Compton and Paramount, graduated from UCLA in 2019, and is currently working on her Paralegal Certificate. She plans on graduating with her certificate in 2023, and plans to continue her education by obtaining her Master’s in Public Policy. She has volunteered at her church for many years in different organizations such as Samaritan’s Purse, and is currently a volunteer for Christian Brigades, a non-profit that helps take sustainable medical care to countries that need it the most. She has always had an interest in using the legal field to help her community both afar and close. She found that opportunity here in Community Lawyers, Inc. CLI helps bridge the gap between the immigrant community and the lack of affordable legal assistance, so she hopes to gain the opportunity to contribute to her community by being a resource, especially for the immigrant community.
