Brittany Faith, director at Grant, Konvalinka & Harrison, PC, has been appointed to the advisory committee of the American Bar Association’s Commission on Immigration. Ms. Faith was named to the appointment-only 10-person committee by ABA President Mary Smith.
The Advisory Committee provides counsel to the Commission in its efforts to ensure fair treatment and full due process rights for immigrants and refugees within the United States, develop and implement immigration-related policy for the ABA and advocate for changes in the law when necessary.
It also provides continuing education to the bar and the public and creates and assists in the operation of pro bono programs to assist vulnerable immigrant and refugee populations.
"Since its inception, the Commission on Immigration has had a tremendous impact in immigration advocacy on behalf of the ABA," officials said.
“It is such an enormous honor to be appointed to the Commission on Immigration Advisory Committee to be able to work directly on the national policy that directly affects immigrants including my own clients,” said Ms. Faith. “I hope that my work can make a positive difference in not only the lives of immigrants, but also the country as a whole.”
"Ms. Faith is head of GKH’s Immigration Practice Group," officials said. "Her practice focuses on employment-based and family-based immigration. Participation in and service to the bar has enabled her to grow as an attorney and to give back to the community. She has extensive experience in leadership including serving as an elected director on the AILA Board of Governors and president of the TBA YLD. Ms. Faith’s dedication and skill has earned her numerous accolades including the 2021 Joseph Minsky Young Lawyer Award by AILA for her outstanding contributions made as a young lawyer in the field of immigration and nationality law and the 2019 'ABA on the Rise- Top 40 Young Lawyers' award."
