LOS ABOGADOS FAMILY SEPARATION ATTORNEY MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
The fight for separated families is not over! We are seeking pro bono attorneys to represent separated families currently residing in Phoenix while their immigration/asylum cases are pending.
Though previous immigration experience is helpful, no prior experience is needed. We will pair pro bono attorneys with an experienced immigration attorney mentor, provide training on immigration court practice and asylum law, and provide monthly case collaboration lunches with mentors for ongoing support and mentorship on cases.
If you would like to volunteer as a pro bono attorney, or as an experienced immigration attorney mentor, please contact Marcos Tapia at HERE
