The Brooklyn Defender Services (“BDS”) has invited me to be on its Advisory Board for its Immigration Unit. BDS originated as a public defender service and has expanded its services to include immigration. The BDS Advisory Board provides guidance to the BDS’ immigration lawyers. I’ve been helping their Immigration Unit with developing strategies for their cases and answering their questions about immigration law and immigration court practices. I enjoy mentoring immigration attorneys. One of my favorite things to do at the law firm that I used to work for was to train the new associates and supervise the interns.
