Ben joined PAIFUP in April 2020 as a supervising attorney.


In addition to all the challenges that people without lawyers face in the legal system, immigrants placed in detention are unable to access phones, medical assistance, or their own property. Many of our clients are further burdened by language barriers, and the continuing harmful impacts from traumatic experiences. Despite all this, time and again, I come away struck by the courage of the clients I meet through PAIFUP.  This is the hardest, and also the most rewarding work I have ever done.
