Susan Molinari, Esq., an attorney at Baker, Braverman & Barbadoro P.C., recently completed training at The Political Asylum/Immigration Representation Project (PAIR), the premier provider of pro bono immigration legal services to asylum-seekers and immigrants unjustly detained in Massachusetts.
The training Molinari attended, entitled “Representing Minors: An Overview of Special Immigrant Juvenile Status”, focused on how to assist juveniles to gain protective status in state court and before the immigration service. It also offered strategies on how to work with minors and highlight available resources that minors can access.
“The immigration issue has been percolating for many years and there seem to be far more questions than answers. Thanks to the training I received at PAIR, we have a few more answers and can better represent the true victims of immigration reform, the children,” said Molinari.
Founded in 1989, PAIR is nationally recognized pro bono model that works to secure safety and freedom for asylum-seekers who have fled from persecution throughout the world and to promote the rights of immigrants unjustly detained. PAIR provides hope and a new beginning to asylum-seekers, torture survivors and immigration detainees.
“Even though we pride ourselves on Boston-caliber legal representation at fees you will only find outside the city, we realize not everyone who needs a lawyer can afford to retain one,” said Paul Barbadoro, a partner at the Firm. “Susan is one of several attorneys at our Firm who takes that to heart and will work pro bono for certain cases. We’re proud of her commitment to getting the training needed to better represent immigration clients.”
In addition to her work with immigration, Molinari specializes in complex litigation cases, trials and appeals in the areas of business and commercial litigation, criminal defense, consumer protection, probate litigation, and zoning appeals. Admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 1999, she’s also a member of the United States District Court, District of Massachusetts, admitted in 2000. A member of the Boston Bar Association, Molinari is a legal advocate for the Riverside Community Care Human Rights Committee in Dedham, MA. For more information about PAIR, visit www.pairproject.org.
