We are pleased to announce that MK Attorney Meredith Jolie was named the American Immigration Lawyers Association ("AILA")  DC Chapter's  Pro Bono/Outreach Person of the Year!  AILA's chapter-based program honors those who are exemplars of the pillar of professionalism in pro bono work.   

Meredith joined Maggio Kattar in March of 2019 and focuses her practice on employment-based immigration,  Meredith also has extensive experience successfully representing individual clients in family-based immigration, waivers, asylum, extraordinary ability cases, and complex naturalization matters. Meredith has established herself as a hard-working and thorough attorney that clients can depend on for step-by-step navigation through the ever-changing and highly technical immigration system.

Her passion for immigration law arose out of her volunteer experiences working with children survivors of human trafficking and a genuine desire to help others. Through several non-profit organizations, she continues to provide pro bono legal services for humanitarian relief cases such as asylum and VAWA, advises at Naturalization Workshops, and also tutored students taking citizenship classes. 

Congratulations Meredith!
