La Paz Chattanooga, in partnership with its Business Development arm, Compañía will host a panel discussion to include three local law firms as part of its monthly networking event on Feb. 11.
The lunch event will take place at the Chattanooga Business Development Resource Center on 1250 Market St. at noon.
The panel will include Brittany Faith Thomas, director at Grant, Konvalinka & Harrison, P.C., Carlos Calderin, shareholder at Calderin & Oliva, P.A. and Martin Lester of Lester Law, P.A. Thomas and Calderin both currently serve on the board of La Paz Chattanooga.
The three panelists are all immigration attorneys in Chattanooga and have worked closely with the Latinx/Hispanic population.
The purpose of the panel is to educate the community and reduce misconceptions about the immigration process in the United States. The expert panelist will help La Paz’s constituents understand the process more clearly, specifically how it has changed during the current presidential administration.
The panel’s moderator is Vivian Lozano-Sterchi, director of Social Impact at La Paz Chattanooga. Ms. Lozano-Sterchi has worked closely with the participating attorneys over the years while serving La Paz’s clients seeking immigration services.
“We’re giving people an opportunity to be more knowledgeable about a subject that oftentimes is confusing,” said Ms. Lozano-Sterchi.
“The panel is only one hour, so there is only so much we can cover, but we hope it encourages people to continue researching and learning about this subject.”
Tickets to the networking event and panel are available for purchase on the La Paz website and Facebook page.
