—Dan Kesselbrenner, Executive Director
It’s not just the trainings, practice advisories, and brilliant legal work that NIPNLG does that allows me to help my clients avoid detention and deportation; it’s the folks at NIPNLG who are willing to take the time to support the immigration bar. NIPNLG staff supported me when I was a brand new deportation defense attorney in the middle of the Arizona desert. And that support hasn’t stopped for over 13 years. What NIPNLG offers goes well beyond mentorship, and can best be described as true solidarity. I am deeply honored to be recognized by this incredible organization.
—Raha Jorjani, NIPNLG 2018 Member Honoree
