Born in Bavaria and the daughter of a German immigrant, Claudine-Annick is passionate about serving immigrants. Immigrants enrich this country with culture, tradition, and diverse perspectives. She chose a career in immigration, because she wants to show immigrants they are understood, appreciated, and valuable, and someone will fight for them. She worked on asylum, special immigrant juvenile status, U-visas, and cancellation of removal cases with Catholic Charities, Legal Aid Society, and Cardozo Law School’s Immigration Justice Clinic, representing unaccompanied minors and clients with criminal convictions. Claudine-Annick represents adults with children as part of Immigrant Justice Corps.
