We love to see immigration advocates grow in number. Recently, immigration attorney, Kendra Scheuerlein, trained attendees at the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights’ (ICIRR) Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) accredited representative program. Ms. Scheuerlein presented on immigrant visa processing, from Form I-130 approval through immigrant visa interviews at US Consulates abroad and waivers of inadmissibility.
The BIA accredited representative training allows people who work at non-profit community organizations to represent people before US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) if partially accredited, and the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) Immigration Court if fully accredited.
Kendra Scheuerlein is an associate with Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym, Ltd. She concentrates her practice in the areas of immigration and nationality matters. These include family-based immigration issues, waivers, naturalization, asylum, consular processing, and appeals. Ms. Scheuerlein represents clients in removal proceedings before the Department of Homeland Security.
