Brownstein Brings on Alice Lugo, Former Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security

November 30, 2023 - Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is pleased to announce that Alice Lugo, former assistant secretary for legislative affairs at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, will be joining the firm’s Government Relations practice in its Washington, D.C., office.

“We’re delighted to have Assistant Secretary Lugo join our bipartisan team here at Brownstein,” said Will Moschella, co-chair of Brownstein’s Government Relations Department. “Her experience at DHS and with House and Senate Democrats have put her at the forefront of high-profile domestic policy debates and gives her invaluable experience and insight into issues our clients follow, including national, homeland, cyber and infrastructure security as well as trade, immigration and congressional oversight inquiries. We are thrilled to find someone with as much experience in the legislative branch of both chambers and an executive branch agency,” added Moschella.

Lugo was the assistant secretary for legislative affairs at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security where she served as the principal advisor to Secretary Mayorkas and senior leadership on all congressional engagements, hearings and matters before Congress. She managed executive branch interagency policymaking at the highest levels of government, high-stakes legislative negotiations and rapid response teams during national security emergencies. Prior to her work at DHS, Lugo served as counsel and chief counsel to senior Latino members of both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and is well respected within the Congressional Hispanic Caucus for her work on immigration law and border policy. Lugo was also managing attorney at a Washington, D.C., nonprofit, Ayuda, representing immigrant survivors of domestic violence.

“I am excited to join Brownstein’s well-respected, dynamic bipartisan team here in Washington. I look forward to putting my experience in the House, Senate and executive branch to work toward achieving our clients’ goals on the high-stakes issues the firm takes on,” said Lugo.

Lugo received her bachelor’s degree and law degree from Creighton University.
