Heather Perez Arroyo, Esq. is an attorney at PAIR, where she specializes in detention and removal defense. This year, she serves as the Greater Boston Immigrant Defense Fund Fellow representing detained immigrants. Heather earned her J.D. from Boston College Law School and her B.A. in Political Science from Boston University. During law school, she participated in BC's Immigration Clinic where she represented indigent immigrants in removal proceedings and focused on the representation of minors facing deportation who, because of their age, are often neglected for services and go unrepresented. Heather received the Law School Award for Clinical Excellence for her work in both the Immigration Clinic and the Juvenile Rights Advocacy Program. Prior to law school, Heather worked in public service for over 5 years, crafting legislation and organizing to advance progressive policies in Boston. She is fluent in Spanish.
