PLC Says Farewell to Christian Abasto
Director of Litigation to spend more time with his family
in San Diego

Last month, the Public Law Center said goodbye to our Director of Litigation, Christian Abasto, and I conducted his exit interview with mixed emotions. I knew from the beginning Christian's daily commute to our headquarters in Santa Ana from his home in San Diego would be tough to sustain. I also knew Christian's leadership at PLC would expand our impact in the Orange County community to new horizons and so whatever amount of time we had him on board would be good for PLC and good for the community.

Anna is being honored for her leadership in establishing pro bono programs in Orange County that allow UCI Law students to work alongside attorneys.
