NEW YORK, May 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Brad Bernstein, Managing Partner of the Law Offices of Spar & Bernstein, has spent his career legally assisting over 100,000 immigrants with all sorts of immigration issues. Today, he is pioneering his profession and knowledge through social media; focusing on closing the gap of attorney-client accessibility, and flipping justice statistics in favor of those less fortunate.
In immigration court, one has the right to retain legal representation, but right of counsel is not automatically provided to those who cannot afford one. According to the Syracuse University TRAC Report, 35 percent of immigrants went unrepresented in 2017. The NY Immigrant Family Unity Project, has provided attorney services to low-income immigrants facing deportation in New York City since 2013. In that time, the number of successful cases has jumped from 4 to 1,100 percent. The immigration system is often stacked against individuals without an attorney.
Bringing effective counsel to those who would otherwise not receive it, is what drives Brad's vision behind his digital show, Brad Show Live.
