Amy Pont, of LAS’ Immigration Law Unit, Honored as Univision’s February Angel

“The Angel of Univision 41” for the month of February was awarded to Amy Pont, a Staff Attorney in The Legal Aid Society’s Immigration Law Unit.

The monthly recognition pays tribute to individuals who are working to provide better lives for those in their communities.

Pont, whose mother is Colombian, fights for the rights of immigrants and represents dozens of families who come to this country. She also guides, supervises and trains law students. At the end of every year, one of the 12 “angels” is recognized as the “angel of the year.”

“The immigration history of my family from Colombia motivated me to do that job,” says Pont.
