The Immigration Project

Berkeley, United States
Joined April 2018

We work in the US and use mobile phone technology to simplify immigration law for immigrants in need of deportation defense.

Presence in: United States
Focus: Access to Information

My law firm, O’Brien Immigration, located in Berkeley, California, specializes in deportation defense, namely with regard to asylum seekers from around the world. The countries with the largest presence in our office are: Guatemala, El Salvador, Nepal, Mongolia and Eritrea.

Due to the intricate and sometimes convoluted nature of US immigration law, I have started a nonprofit that uses mobile phone technology to reach out to immigrants with information on how the law works, so that they can be more knowledgable how to navigate the immigration system and how to access representation.

I am an immigration attorney in San Francisco, California, and I specialize in asylum and deportation defense. My law office represents people from about 75 different countries. We are focused on using technology to increase efficiencies and to bring down the costs of immigration defense because it is generally quite expensive.

I have recently started a nonprofit whose mission is to use mobile technology to empower immigrants as to their legal immigration rights in the US.
