Igor Birman was born in the Soviet Union and learned at a young age what it means to live in a society that suppresses freedom. That experience has driven him to be an ardent and dedicated advocate for preserving freedom as the cornerstone of American public policy.
Igor Birman came to the United States as a refugee in 1994 and grew up in California. He refers to becoming a U.S. Citizen at the age of 19 as the proudest moment of his life. He is a graduate of UC Davis with a BA in Political Science and holds a Doctor of Law degree from Emory University. He is a member of the California Bar.
In 2009, he was asked by Congressman Tom McClintock to serve as his Chief of Staff. In that role, Igor served as Congressman McClintock’s senior policy and strategy advisor, responsible for both Washington, DC and district offices, before recently taking a leave of absence to run for Congress.
Igor Birman resides in Rancho Cordova. In his spare time, he is an instrument-rated private pilot and avid skier.
