“It’s almost like I was given my life back, and much better, much stronger, less afraid. No longer do I feel like I have to be invisible.”

“When I received my visa, my dreams became true. My daughter is now in high school, my son is starting college, and [I am] looking to continue my education towards something bigger for myself.”

“There’s tears of joy, there’s hugs, there’s pure joy and happiness. It’s just a different level of satisfaction that I’ve gotten from working with pro bono clients. They’re extremely grateful for the services I can offer and the help I can provide.”

“When someone asks me, ‘What are some of the major things you’ve worked on? What are some of the things that are most important to you?’ Well, I’ve argued before the Supreme Court, I’ve won major cases that have changed California law, but anytime someone asks me what I’m most proud of, I think of my experience obtaining asylum for that young man from Ghana.”
