Attorneys R. Terry Parker and Michael Lewis in Successful Immigration Case

On Friday, June 30, 2017, Terry Parker and Michael Lewis successfully petitioned the United States Immigration Court to grant Lawful Permanent Resident status to the mother of four United States citizens, a middle-aged woman who faced deportation proceedings brought by the United States Department of Homeland Security. Rath, Young and Pignatelli took on the representation pro bono publico and tried the matter to a federal immigration judge in Boston. The immigration judge ruled that Attorneys Parker and Lewis successfully proved that removal of their client from the United States would result in extreme hardship to her family. The United States Department of Homeland Security opted not to appeal the matter, and Rath Young’s client returned to her family to celebrate July 4th after serving months in detention awaiting trial. The matter came to Rath Young and Pignatelli by referral through the University of New Hampshire School of Law. Attorneys Parker and Lewis plan to describe their experience as pro bono attorneys in this area in a piece to be published in the New Hampshire Bar News.
