Recently Nicole was able to put her experience regarding the citizenship process to work for a good cause!
On Thursday, October 30th, Nicole made the short trip to Redwood City, California, where she participated in the New Americans Campaign Citizenship Workshop on behalf of Hurtubise Weber Law. The workshop was provided to assist individuals who may meet the requirements to apply for citizenship but can not afford to hire a private attorney.
Sponsoring non-profit organizations SIREN (Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network) and the IIBA (International Institute of the Bay Area) made the workshop possible. SIREN's mission is to empower low-income immigrants and refugees in Santa Clara County through community education and organizing, leadership development, policy advocacy and naturalization services. More information can be found on their website:

Although turnout was lower than expected, those who did seek assistance were grateful for access to experienced immigration attorneys in their quest for citizenship. Nicole was excited to further one of the core missions of the firm - to stay involved with our local communities and to help those who need it most.
