From its inception, our firm has advocated for the fair and just treatment of foreign nationals, especially those living in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area, Northern Virginia, and Winchester, Virginia. Prince William County/Manassas City, Virginia (about 30 miles southwest of Washington, D.C.) has been a hotbed of immigration issues and we have been there from the inception of ICE enforcement to advocate for and represent foreign nationals. Most recently, in May 2020, Lisa Shea (formerly Lisa Johnson-Firth) was appointed as an Alternate Board Member to the Prince William County-City of Manassas Jail Board that supervises the detention center. She will be advocating for the abolition of the 287(g) program at the Detention Center that has violated the due process rights of thousands of immigrants.

We have done many “Know Your Rights” and immigration law presentations and trainings to over 8,000 people, including foreign nationals, law enforcement, judges, teachers, clergy, and to community and political leaders. An important focus in these trainings is understanding how to protect oneself and family with law enforcement and in the event of an emergency such as deportation, arrest, death or sickness.

Please contact us if you would like information on our trainings and presentations. We are always happy to assist the community through education.
