Francisco M. Ugarte

San Francisco Public Defender's Office
Immigration Attorney
San Francisco, CA, USA


Francisco is the first full-time immigration attorney at the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office, where he advises criminal defenders how to avoid adverse immigration consequences for non-citizens during the plea bargain process.  He also provides direct representation for immigrants facing deportation due to a criminal arrest or conviction.  Previously, Francisco worked at Dolores Street Community Services, where he built the organization’s first deportation defense program designed specifically to defend non-citizens against illegal ICE workplace and home raids.  Francisco has successfully litigated dozens of removal cases, including cases where non-citizens filed motions to suppress evidence. In 2009, Francisco litigated Matter of Garcia-Garcia, 25 I&N Dec. 93 (BIA 2009), the first immigration case which held that a non-citizen could request a court to order that ICE remove an ankle bracelet from a non-citizen in deportation proceedings.  Francisco was recognized in 2015 by Mujeres Unidas y Activas (MUA) for his work representing survivors of domestic violence wrongfully turned over to ICE for deportation, and in 2011 by Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA) for his immigrant rights advocacy.  He frequently lectures on topics relating to deportation defense.  He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Central American Resource Center of San Francisco.
