Komanapalli Jones deeply appreciates the life she’s been able to lead in the U.S. and believes that opportunity ought to be shared. She’s built a practice dedicated to making immigration law more equitable.
A Quest for Justice Decades in the Making
Prior to earning admission to the California State Bar, Komanapalli Jones received multiple bachelor’s degrees, cum laude, from the University of California at Irvine and a Juris Doctorate from Loyola Law School, Los Angeles.
Academic focuses including political science, philosophy, and global peace and conflict studies left her well-prepared for the unique situations she would later face resolving nuanced cases for her diverse clients. So too would her experience authoring “Nationalism and International Human Rights Violations: A Study on Iran, India, the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.”
Komanapalli Jones has served as a judicial extern for the Honorable William F. Rylaarsdam, Associate Justice of the California Courts of Appeal, Fourth District, Division Three. She is admitted to practice law in the state of California, as well as several United States District Courts.
