The Project

Paoloa provided legal representation to minors in immigration removal proceedings, including in cases involving asylum, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and other forms of relief.

The project is aimed at protecting children who arrive in the U.S. alone and who fled neglect and violence in their home countries. As no legal representation for these children is mandated, this project seeks to address this need so they can have a much better chance of having their stories heard and their claims advanced.
