Over the past month, MIA has had the great pleasure of working alongside immigration attorney Jessica Bradley as we manage our burgeoning caseload. She will be helping us out this spring, representing MIA clients in all manner of family- and humanitarian-based immigration cases.
Jessica is a graduate of the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, where she served as the Symposium Editor of the Law Review. Her symposium, “Breaking the Silence: Legal Voices in the Fight Against Human Trafficking,” explored how our justice system is evolving towards the decriminalization of victims and how the Internet has facilitated modern slavery, among other emerging issues. During law school, Jessica demonstrated her commitment to justice through her pro bono work and her service with the Public Action Law Society.
During her brief tenure with MIA, Jessica has already completed a green card application for a Nigerian survivor of domestic violence, and she is currently representing a father of three who is at risk of deportation to the Philippines–a country where he has not lived since 1989. She also assisted law students in preparing applications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals during U of M’s Alternative Spring Break.
We are so thrilled to have Jessica with us during this exciting time, and our clients could not ask for a more dedicated advocate on their side.
