Not having an attorney during an immigration court hearing would be like going unarmed into war without the necessary ammunition to ensure you or your family’s safety. During my hearings before the judge, of which there were three that lasted about 20 hours, Elizabeth was a mentor. She guided and defended me with great intelligence, wisdom, assurance, and tenacity before every official we encountered in the process.
We were never alone. Elizabeth was always there to help me obtain my political asylum in the USA.
