Firm Helps Low-Income Immigrants Apply for Naturalization

Bertolino LLP attorney F. Brett Baccari and his wife, Rachel Baccari, an attorney at the Law Offices of Becky Beaver, volunteered this morning at the Political Asylum Project of Austin (PAPA) to help qualified low-income applicants become United States citizens. PAPA, in association with the Austin Bar Association, held two Saturday clinics staffed by local Austin attorneys who provided legal assistance to qualified Legal Permanent Residents to help them obtain their United States citizenship. Qualified immigrants who came to the clinic worked one-on-one with a volunteer attorney who helped them navigate and complete the otherwise complicated naturalization process.

Bertolino LLP is committed to public service and regularly participates in local pro bono activities and charitable events in its Texas and Florida communities. Austin attorneys interested in assisting PAPA with future endeavors should visit the organization's volunteer website or contact PAPA's office at (512) 478-9788.
