2017 – The Year in Numbers

Here we are…the last Friday of 2017…It has been a year full of change and uncertainty. Yet, even in difficult times, we find moments of joy – calling clients to let them know their VAWA case approved and hearing screams of excitement, everyone who gets a green card based on U status and cries because their life will never be the same, every couple that gets to stay together in the United States, every parent who is protected from deportation…I wouldn’t trade those moments for anything. Thank you to our clients for letting us be part of your immigration journey in 2017. We have a lot of work ahead of us in 2018, but we’re ready!
