KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER

"Keeping families together” means finding creative solutions to complex immigration problems. It means being a zealous advocate in court to prevent a removal (deportation) that tears a family apart and working with clients within the United States and their family members abroad to maintain family unity or to bring a family back together.
