A day with an Immigration Attorney, by Reshad Randle

One thing that I can say about lawyers to the rescue is that they provide students with excellent opportunities to learn new things. On the day of December 31st I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Antonio Revilla, a lawyer that works in the field of immigration and his fellow workers. I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences of my life.

During the first five minutes after meeting Mr. Revilla, I had already learned new things. He explained to me how things “operate” in the field immigration and he also told me how he felt when he helped a client. Later on I had the opportunity to visit an actual courthouse with Juliana whom like everyone else working there were one of the most amiable person I have ever met.

During the time I was there, I was able to observe the steps taken in submitting documents and receipts. I also saw an actual judge. Due to the fact that I had never seen one before, it was pretty awesome. After leaving the courthouse, we returned to Mr. Revilla’s firm and ate pizza with everyone that was so good that I only could eat one. Soon after, I began to read about a court case titled “Reason to Believe”. Sadly as I finished reading, it was time for me to go. Some may have thought it was a slow day but for me it was a great experience. Thank you so much Lawyers to the Rescue and Mr. Revilla for the great opportunity.
