Gia Giudice Lands An Immigration Law Job After Father Joe Giudice’s Deportation

Gia Giudice grew up on Real Housewives of New Jersey and lived out all of her parents’ drama on screen. Can we ever forget the heartbroken little girl singing about the strife between her mother, Teresa Giudice, and uncle, Joe Gorga? As the eldest of four sisters, she had that extra responsibility, too.

As an adult, Gia waded into the drama. She defended her mother against nemesis Margaret Josephs. She took on the family drama by confronting Joe and his wife Melissa Gorga. Indeed, Gia seems a highly mature and able young woman.

Gia has lofty professional goals as well. After Joe Giudice was deported to his native Italy in October 2019, Gia decided on a career in immigration law. She cited the rift in her family as the reason.

According to Page Six, Gia has secured her dream job. She landed a job with immigration attorney Kathleen Martinez once she finishes her senior year of college.

“You’re never going to guess who I just hired. The next generation. Get ready to welcome Gia Giudice to our team!” the virtual immigration attorney wrote in a TikTok video.

Kathleen was impressed by Gia’s drive to serve the immigrant community. She responded in the comment section that Gia, “wants to help immigrants more than people realize. Her heart is so big for that.”

Certainly, the 22-year-old college junior would know how detrimental immigration law can be on a family. “I’m in my final year at Rutgers University, and after I graduate, I am pursuing my dream of going to law school,” Gia said in an interview with

In addition to scoring big on her dream to be a “very successful lawyer,” Gia also wants a “lucrative clothing business on the side.”

As for her father, Gia revealed that Joe is “doing really well.” She added, “He’s working with a contruction company right now in the Bahamas. We’re very happy for him.”

Joe’s legal strife included 41 months in prison for fraud, before being held in an ICE detention facility. His deportation destroyed his 20 year marriage to Teresa. They finalized their divorce in September 2020. At the time that Joe’s appeal was denied, Gia started a petition asking then-President Donald Trump to reverse the decision.

“Their whole experience influenced me, honestly, for the better,” Gia said of her parents’ situation. “I just want to help families and be able to be there for families and help children, honestly, especially.”

Teresa, meanwhile, remains in the headlines with her recent marriage to Luis Ruelas in August 2022.
