Dodi was born and raised in Naples, Italy. She holds a B.A. in International Affairs, which she earned in 2013 from John Cabot University in Rome, Italy.
After college, Dodi moved to San Francisco, California, to pursue her J.D. at Golden Gate University School of Law. She completed her J.D. in 2016 and later returned to Golden Gate University School of Law to earn an LL.M. in Intellectual Property Law.
After graduating from her LL.M. program, in 2019, Dodi joined the Law Office of Robert B. Jobe as part of the litigation team. At the firm, she works on affirmative asylum cases but also handles in-house intellectual property issues.
Throughout her law school career, Dodi explored the field of immigration law by taking courses, pursuing pertinent internships, and volunteering at naturalization clinics. After law school, Dodi worked at a corporate law firm that also handled business immigration matters. Additionally, she has experience helping clients with their asylum, permanent residency, and U.S. citizenship applications. As an immigrant herself, Dodi understands the challenges of navigating the U.S. immigration system and exercises empathy towards her clients.
In particular, Dodi has a passion for helping asylum seekers, as she believes all individuals deserve peace, safety, and freedom in their lives and in the country where they live. In 2016, Dodi served on the board of the LGBT Asylum Project, an emerging, San Francisco based, non-profit organization that helps LGBT immigrants who are fleeing persecution in their home countries.
