Lilah joined PAIFUP in March 2020 as a staff attorney.

What do you enjoy most about your position?
I love that this work is truly a team effort that goes beyond making legal arguments in front of the court. This work necessarily involves representing clients at hearings and ensuring that their rights are being protected, but it also involves walking through the immigration process with clients and their families to lessen the uncertainty of what the future might hold. In a system that is complex, confusing, and often rushed, my goal is to be there for my clients every step of the way to ensure that they understand the process and feel supported so that they can fully participate in their representation. PAIFUP’s mission is to provide this opportunity to every detained individual in Pennsylvania and it is a mission that I am proud to be a part of.
