My father was a lawyer, so that originally piqued my interest in law school. I was very interested in international human rights law. I’ve always loved to travel. I loved different cultures and immigration law, and particularly asylum and refugee law was a way for me to do human rights law domestically in the United States.
A case that touched me and made me know that I wanted to do immigration was when I was representing an asylum seeker who was a girl who had been trafficked from Thailand, and her story was so—it was so full of anguish. That she was so strong and so determined, and I just was so fulfilled by helping her, and I knew then that this was work that I wanted to do.
My name is Anne Relias, and I am an attorney at Scott D. Pollock & Associates.View Similar Articles
