The Dallas Morning News Features Gardere Attorneys Volunteering at North Texas Juvenile Asylum Clinic

05.22.15

The Dallas Morning News featured Larry Schoenbrun and Rachel Kingrey, two Gardere attorneys who are volunteering at Catholic Charities' legal clinic, assisting juvenile immigrants with their their asylum applications. 

Once a month, lawyers, translators, schoolteachers and other volunteers gather at a free legal clinic at Catholic Charities in northeast Dallas. They listen to horrific stories from children who crossed the Texas border in unprecedented numbers last year seeking refuge from gang violence in Central American countries. 

Immigrants seeking asylum are not granted court-appointed attorneys. Mr. Schoenbrun recently brought together a team from Gardere and successfully assisted a 14-year-old Salvadoran girl with her asylum application, one of the clinic's first successes. 

"The system is abusive," said Mr. Schoenbrun, the son of Eastern European refugees who fled the Holocaust. "... These people have done nothing but flee from being killed." 

Mr. Schoenbrun has recruited 42 Gardere attorneys and 12 staff members across all offices to work on the Firm's Pro Bono Immigrant Children Project. The Firm is currently handling six immigration cases.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
