Bar Reporter Highlights Asylum Case

January's copy of the the Philadelphia Bar Association's Legal Intelligencer shone the "Pro Bono Spotlight" on HIAS Pennsylvania.

Thanks to Eric and the Intelligencer for their wonderful support!

Managing Attorney Philippe Weisz on CBS Philly

Did you know:

There are people who pretend to be immigration legal experts in order to exploit unknowing immigrants? These notarios charge unreasonable fees for help they cannot give in order to exploit a needing population and to make a quick buck - and sometimes end up getting those they claim to be helping into deportation. Its a known harm in the immigrant rights community, and our Managing Attorney Philippe Weisz recently spoke to the local press about it. See the full article below!

Although many of them meet conditions that would allow them to remain in the country legally, going through immigration proceedings without legal help is daunting.
 
In April of 2013, the offices of HIAS Pennsylvania got a call: the Vera Institute of Justice  had a project and our organization was perfect to undertake it.
