Maslon is pleased to announce that the firm has been honored with a "Pro Bono Partner of the Year" award by the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota (ILCM), an organization which enhances opportunities for immigrants and refugees through legal representation for low-income individuals and through education and advocacy with diverse communities. The "Pro Bono Partner of the Year" award was presented to Maslon for participation in ILCM's Cancellation of Removal Project Pilot, which pairs volunteer attorneys with low-income immigrants to represent them in their Cancellation of Removal cases.
ILCM expanded their Pro Bono Project in 2017 to include removal defense work in response to the recent increase in enforcement actions against immigrants and refugees by the Department of Homeland Security, which has resulted in hundreds of immigrants in detention in Minnesota facing possible deportation every day. Maslon attorneys Justin Rose and Wayne Moskowitz participated in the ILCM Cancellation of Removal Project. Justin accepted the "Pro Bono Partner of the Year" award on Maslon's behalf at the ILCM's Gala on June 1, 2018.
