Individuals with little knowledge of U.S. laws and culture may feel anxious and isolated when faced with a family crisis far from home. Listening with care and empathy, we focus on the unique circumstances and priorities of every case. We then work creatively to advance these priorities, ensuring that cultural or language barriers do not get in the way of the best possible outcome.
