Senior Staff Attorney
Angelo Guisado is a Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights, where he specializes in government misconduct, racial justice, and immigrants’ rights issues. His practice currently focuses on challenging oppressive state power and the denial of migrants’ rights at the U.S.-Mexico border, including litigating Al Otro Lado v. Nielsen and the Asylum Ban cases. Outside of the courtroom, his advocacy efforts have allowed him to support and collaborate with groups such as No More Deaths, No New Jails, and Migrant Justice.
Prior to coming to the Center for Constitutional Rights, he practiced at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, where he litigated cases in federal and state courts across a broad docket. He is a graduate of the Fordham University School of Law, cum laude, and a former law clerk to the late-Judge Damon J. Keith of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
He has published law review articles on constitutional law in the Nebraska and University of San Francisco Law Reviews, and his missives on a broad array of legal topics can be read in Slate, Jacobin, Teen Vogue, and Current Affairs. He is available for media requests in English and Spanish, and has contributed to NPR, Al Jazeera, and Telemundo.
