Kai Medeiros

San Diego Immigration Attorney

Kai Medeiros joins Jacobs & Schlesinger’s immigration and appellate practices after completing a clerkship with the Honorable Juan R. Torruella of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. He received his J.D., as well as an M.A. in Latin American studies, from Stanford in 2017. Prior to that, he attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he received a B.A. in global studies and Spanish, while minoring in linguistics, in 2013.

While in law school, Kai volunteered and interned for Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto, where he worked on a wide range of immigration matters, including asylum, SIJS, and U-visa cases. Kai also worked extensively during law school for Stanford Law School’s International Human Rights Law Clinic and the Stanford Human Rights Center. Highlights from his work there include traveling to Bolivia to contribute to a study on detention policy in the Americas, and assisting the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in litigating five different cases before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. He also interned for the Mexico City-based human rights NGO Centro de Derechos Humanos Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez.
