WHAT FORMER STUDENTS SAID ABOUT THE CHAMBER PARALEGAL PROGRAM
Ask The Lawyer Radio Show
with Attorney Brian Figeroux
Ask the Lawyer with Brian Figeroux, Esq. You have questions, we have answers on Immigration & Matrimonial Law, Wills, Estate & Trusts, Civil Rights, Personal Injury, Bankruptcy, Taxation, Landlord & Tenant, Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability and Real Estate Transactions. We bring you the latest updates on the law and community issues.
The big topic today is VAWA, the Violence Against Women Act. When the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Vermont announced on July 18, that a federal grand jury returned a 12-count indictment against Arleigh Louison, 53, of Brooklyn, for running an immigration fraud scheme, a search warrant of his office revealed thousands of VAWA applications where false statements were made in connection with Form 1-360 petitions for status adjustments under VAWA. Brian Figeroux, Esq. a member of the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association (AILA), who has been practicing immigration law for over 20 years, explains who qualifies for VAWA and also speaks on Advance Parole.
