Valley Immigrant Advocates can double legal services with US Department of Justice accreditation

Valley Immigrant Advocates in Ottawa can double the amount of little to no cost legal services they can provide to residents. This is because they have been recognized by the US Department of Justice. The DOJ’s statement says VIA has the structure and standing to provide representation appearing before the Executive Office for Immigration Review and the Department of Homeland Security. Attorney and interpreter Octavia Davis has also been approved as an accredited representative by the DOJ. John Breslin, executive director, says the dual accreditation makes the group one of the only ones to receive the accreditation outside the Illinois metropolitan area. The recognition is good for two years.
