While many government agencies are at home teleworking without complete focus on their caseloads, our team at STERN Law has continued working around the clock to ensure that our clients’ rights are respected and that cases don’t fall through the cracks. We are also working hard to make sure that our clients come out ahead when everything goes back to normal.
Our clients need us more now than ever, and we plan to stay active by
- Petitioning the courts to release our clients from detention, dismiss criminal charges, and cancel deportations
- Building strong applications of support for immigration benefits that will continue to be processed
- Improving our internal systems to ensure that the STERN Law team is able to adjust to change and can be available when our clients need us
We have special technology in place to help us do our work remotely in observance of social distancing recommendations. We are also committed to client safety and have innovated the way we meet. We know that even though things might feel scary, our clients can’t stop their lives, so we have made the following secure communication options available to our clients:
- Telephone conferences
- Video conferences
- Web meetings and chat
There are many changes with the Agencies that we interact with to resolve our cases successfully. However, we are still operating at full capacity. Why? Because our clients cannot afford to simply press pause on their lives. It is worth too much to give up now.
You deserve the chance to stop living in fear. You have earned the right to drive confidently to work and to be with your children without fear that you won’t make it back home. You have worked too hard to not earn what you are worth. You can be proud of who you are.
If legal immigration status and permanent freedom is within your reach, is it worth pursuing right now? We believe it is!
