Amy Masciola, Immigrants' Rights Advocate

Ms. Grossman is a brilliant attorney who cares deeply about her clients. In 2009, she took on a complicated asylum appeal for a refugee from Cote d'Ivoire (a political activist for whom I was acting as advocate). The case had dragged on for more than 2 years before we contacted Ms. Grossman. She and her staff approached the case with dedication, imagination, and the utmost professionalism, helping us overcome what seemed like insurmountable obstacles.

My colleague was finally granted asylum and is in the process of bringing his family to safety in the United States. Without the attorneys of Grossman Law, my colleague might have been returned to Cote d'Ivoire and faced certain arrest and detention or worse. Through their work, Ms. Grossman and her staff are improving the lives of refugees and immigrants every day.
