Light At the End of the Tunnel

It’s hard to believe that we only have one more day at the clinic to finalize our client’s files and send them off! This week has flown by!

Today was spent back in the Health and Elder Law Clinic at the University of Miami. We took the time to review and organize our cases, print out evidentiary support documents, affix certification labels to them, and meet with our supervising attorneys to get their approval on the completed files. Although it initially sounded tedious to have to ensure every crossed T and dotted I, it is really satisfying to know that we have taken extra measures to ensure there is nothing in our files that remains unaccounted for, and that our clients are getting thorough and accurate representation.

In addition to the office time, some of our team went back to Little Haiti to follow up with their clients and obtain additional documents. Though their GPS was a little faulty on the way there, they successfully navigated to and from homes, retrieving official forms, signatures, and ensuring that complete files will be sent to Immigration tomorrow.

Though we are nearing the end, we are looking forward to wrapping everything up tomorrow and sending a wave of applications off!
