Today's episode is the first in a two part series on immigration law. I had the pleasure of interviewing Autumn Nelson, Rocio Rivera and Carla Crapster - the incredible trio from the law firm: The Lawyer Lady in Longmont, CO . They were so gracious to sit down with me and explain in very practical terms what the general public needs to know when it comes to better understanding immigration in the United States. This interview is full of incredibly useful information that can help us respond to the top three prevalent myths of immigration. This conversation might change what you think you already know about immigration. Speaking of knowing, I just read a quote this past week from the historian Daniel Boorstin who said, "The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge." Who better to gain accurate knowledge from than from experts in their field.
These amazing women have incredible stories of their own to share. Their personal histories are just as inspiring as the work they do. What you do so often stems from who you are. These ladies are full of compassion, curiosity, drive, empathy, and knowledge. This well of character that springs forth from each of them is apparent in the intensity of work they provide for each client, the amount of devotion and effort they exert, as well as the reservoir of compassion they bestow on all who have the pleasure of meeting and working with them.
In Part One I'll introduce you to my guests and we'll learn what prompted each of them to devote their careers to immigration law. Then we'll tackle the first first myth which is: "There is a "right" way to immigrate to the United States." Join me as we take the plunge and increase our understanding of immigration law.
