As associate attorney, Virginia R. Barrera, Esq, entered the firm's waiting area, two women were huddled together in prayer. They had come to meet with Attorney Barrera to discuss their older sister.

The older sister had Legal Permanent Resident Status ("a Green Card") that she had secured over 20 years prior. The first “Green Card” she received had her name misspelled. The "corrected" card contained the wrong picture. From there, the older sister was ensnared in a 12 year battle that the client had with USCIS to obtain an accurate card.

Ultimately the sister abandoned her attempts as she felt as if no one was listening to her or caring about her case at USCIS.

Then in July, 2015, this older sister suffered a massive stroke. The sister had worked as a maid at a large hotel chain since she had first received her Legal Permanent Residency in 1997. But in order to receive the Medicaid and Medicare she had to have paid into the system for almost two decades through her payroll taxes; she needed proof of her legal status, and she needed an accurate Green Card.

Unraveling and sifting through two decades of applications, letters and appeals that were over three inches thick was no easy matter. Attorney Barrera, prepared an appeal and legal brief, that so succinctly and directly addressed the issue, that the government officer not only acknowledged the right to appeal, but also issued a decision on the merits in favor of the client in the same letter opinion.

The older sister is now being cared for in a rehabilitation center with her medical expenses being 100% covered by Medicare and Medicaid, thanks to the work of Attorney Barrera in cutting through years of red-tape, and securing an accurate Green Card for this hard-working woman.
