Congratulations to Legal Aid’s Immigration Team!

OCTOBER 26, 2016

Legal Aid’s Immigration Team was recognized for its service to the immigrant community by the Alliance for Immigrant Women (AIW) at its Biennial Conference!

“Immigration law has special pathways for immigrant survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking, but most survivors can’t take advantage of them without the services of an experienced immigration attorney,” commented Kelly Malone, Managing Attorney for Legal Aid’s Family and Immigration Practice Group. “The team’s expertise and dedication to helping survivors is outstanding. They always answer calls from AIW and take on the hardest cases”.
In accepting the award, Adolfo Olivas stated, “The essence of our work is to give people a chance to live free of fear and to realize their fullest potential. Our area of law is truly one that can save and change lives for decades to come. Many of our clients are fleeing poverty, crime, and violence. We help them find a path to a new life in a new country and to forge a brighter future.”
