We were honored to receive recognition from The Missouri Bar for our pro bono work at the 2019 Annual Meeting. We love sharing what we do and how other attorneys can jump right in the fight with us! Thank you, Missouri Bar!
Here is what the Bar shared on our behalf: “For 20 years, Mdivani Corporate Immigration Law Firm in Kansas City has maintained a distinct pro bono program. In 2018 alone, the firm’s four business immigration attorneys and two law clerks provided legal representation to 29 clients at no cost in cases involving rape, domestic violence, domestic assault, sexual assault and stalking. The firm has also provided free legal services for I-360 petitions based on Domestic Violence Under the Violence Against Women Act, U Visa petitions, applications for green cards, naturalization applications, requests for replacement green cards and citizenship certificates for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. In 2019, the entire firm traveled to Texas for a week to assist immigrant women and children in preparation for credible fear/asylum interviews and hearings. The firm also provides on-going training to lawyers and shelter advocates on how to recognize, triage and work with attorneys on these cases. “Mira Mdivani and her firm have been tenacious pro bono advocates,” said one reviewer. “They do great work year after year and are highly deserving of the recognition.””
