Black Lives Matter

It has become clear to all of us at the Law Office of Melanie Shapiro, LLC, that it is not enough to quietly represent Black immigrants and their families; we must loudly, publicly, and explicitly state our stances. To be crystal clear, we are in full support of the Black Lives Matter movement and related movements that advocate for Black people and communities. We strive to be an inclusive, equitable law firm for our diverse team and clientele. The recent wave of protests has re-energized us in our fight for immigrant rights, particularly in regards to the systemic racism and xenophobia Black immigrants face. We will continue to fiercely advocate for our clients in the best way we know how: treating their cases as a matter of upholding civil and human rights. As a firm, we will continue our work in fighting racial injustice from within the system to complement those fighting from outside the system. We hope that the momentum of this movement is the start of a new era. #BlackLivesMatter
