ABOUT THE MODEL
Amanda Bernardo is originally from Princeton Junction, New Jersey. She now lives in Brooklyn, New York, and she is an attorney for a small immigration law firm in the Financial District.
Generally I get immigrants green cards and defend them from deportation. Lately, in the Trump era, the deportation defense battle is the toughest it's ever been. So as a chair for FALA New York and AABANY, I've been pushing to get other attorneys and the Asian American / Filipino American community in general more engaged and aware of how our immigration laws play out in reality. I'm hoping to get young attorneys and law students passionate and active in the immigration practice, as well, particularly in removal defense where there's way too much notario fraud and a huge shortage in competent minority lawyers.
