About Fragomen:
Established in 1951, Fragomen has grown from a respected domestic U.S. immigration law practice to a truly global organization. Their expansion has been a direct result of their strategic decision to establish offices in the markets where our clients would benefit from our on-the-ground presence. Over 60 years ago, Fragomen made a commitment to offer businesses of all sizes, and people and families from all walks of life, access to experienced immigration professionals and support around the world — no matter what stage they’re at in the journey. While Fragomen professionals have a long history of participating in such activities on an individual basis, as the firm has grown, they have taken our commitment to a higher level. For example, sending pro bono teams to assist detained immigrant families at the border, and other pro bono partnerships.
