“The immigration process is so complicated, there’s no way a child could do this on his own, without a lawyer.” -Robin Morse, Nutter McClennan & Fish LLP
“A lot of these cases are daunting, but KIND is very good at helping to facilitate this type of pro bono work for people like me – attorneys who may not have expertise in immigration law but want to get involved” -James Clegg, Mayer Brown LLP
“When I met Kelly for the first time, she was shy, and it naturally took a while for her to open up to me. After some time, she began to trust me and spoke more about the conditions that caused her to migrate to the United States unaccompanied.” -Jennifer Tomsen, Greenberg Traurig LLP
“I cannot imagine what it must be like for a child to be alone in a foreign country, facing language barriers and forced to represent himself in deportation proceedings.” Renee Erickson, Hogan Lovells LLP
“It was kind of like my dream was becoming true and I finally had a lawyer because I always dreamed of that. Bill was the reason for this, he helped me find a shelter, and he is helping me with the process of getting my papers.” – Jeannette, Guinea
