Keynote Speaker

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Gregory Cunningham

Gregory Cunningham is the Immigration Director of Quiroga Law Office, PLLC

KEYNOTE TOPIC: Immigration Law: A guide for Cultural Sensitivity During Anxious Times 

Greg Cunningham has been a Senior Immigration Paralegal at Quiroga Law Office, PLLC, in Spokane Valley, Washington, since 2015. Previously, from 2001 until 2015, he directed the Catholic Charities Spokane Refugee and Immigration Services, which he developed to provide low cost, quality immigration legal services in the region.

Greg earned his BA in foreign languages from Seattle University in 1985. He earned his MA-TESOL from Eastern Washington University in 2001. His thesis was entitled: “Understanding the 'Talking Paper': An examination of the relationship between the English proficiency of immigrants to the United States and their level of engagement in public life."

Greg’s interest in immigration extends to the impact of immigration law and policy on society. He has maintained his connections to the TESOL community and is often asked to address issues of immigration. In 2013, he published “Cutting Off Our Nose to Spite Our Face: The Real Consequences of I-9 Audits Considered through a Case Study of Brewster, Washington” in the Journal of Hate Studies.

Greg is not an attorney. At Catholic Charities, he was accredited through the Board of Immigration Appeals to practice administrative immigration law. He received most of his legal training through the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. He is currently participating in the Washington State Bar Association’s Law Clerk program and hopes to pass the bar in 2022 or 2023.
