The Senior Legal Assistant will be part of the Detention and Deportation Defense Initiative, a publicly-funded project that provides representation for immigrants in removal proceedings, including people in detention and people who are living in their communities. The Senior Legal Assistant will provide support to attorneys in representation of detained clients by receiving communications from detainees, collecting documents in support of applications, communicating with families and service providers, preparing and submitting documents to Immigration Court, preparing immigration applications to USCIS, translation of documents, accurate case tracking and data reporting, and training and mentoring the DDDI Legal Assistants.
