Head shot of Giancarlo Guzman

Gregarious and easy going, Giancarlo Guzman was born to be an investigator. Oftentimes he is the link between ACLU lawyers and our clients, especially when it comes to our lawsuit seeking education equity for the Flint kids damaged by exposure to lead in their water.

Growing up in Detroit, Giancarlo didn’t have to look far to find a role model. His father, Ricardo Guzman, spent his career ensuring southwest Detroit’s Hispanic community could access health and human service programs. Giancarlo brings that same sort of dedication to his work here. But the true focus of his life is his wife and two young children. This explains why he always seems to be at his happiest around the office on Friday afternoons, and his favorite quote is: “A man that does not spend time with his family can never be a real man.”

But it is not all work and family. This is a guy who dreams of kicking back on a beach in Hawaii, and relishes the fall weekends spent savoring good tequila at a tailgate party outside the Big House in Ann Arbor with his fellow University of Michigan alumni. As he likes to say, “Relax. Everything’s going to be all right.”
