Paul Grussendorf

Judge Grussendorf's career in public service spans 25 years as the director of one of the top law school's immigration law clinics in Washington DC and as an immigration judge in Philadelphia and San Francisco. His book MY TRIALS: WHAT I LEARNED IN IMMIGRATION COURT lays bare the shocking practices and routine abuse of immigrants who appear in our nation's immigration courts. Judge Grussendorf began his career representing asylum applicants at the Central American Refugee Center in Washington, DC. at the height of the wars in Central America. He was then named director of the immigration law clinic at George Washington University Law School, where he championed the rights of immigrants and asylum applicants, and later became an immigration law judge. Many of his decisions in the courts of Philadelphia, Baltimore and San Francisco were cutting-edge precedents affording protection to battered spouses, gays, and refugees from civil strife in Africa, Central America and Asia. His book is the first and only publication by an insider of the immigration court system.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
