Meet our Asylum Attorney!

Yesterday we celebrated happy hour at a great local business, Craft & Growler, with our new Asylum Attorney Mary Durbin. A huge Thank You to Craft & Growler and welcome to HRI to Mary!  Mary comes to us from a Dallas Immigration law firm where she spent the past two years working on a wide variety of immigrant matters.  While she attended law school at Washington University, Mary volunteered as a citizenship tutor and held an externship at a legal services non-profit.  Her interest in immigration issues combined with her background in non-profits makes her a perfect fit at HRI!  We are so excited to have her on staff and believe she is going to do a wonderful job!  Here are a few words from Mary herself.

How did you become interested in HRI? Mary Durbin
I am thrilled to be joining this fine organization which does such important work.  I went to law school to become an immigration lawyer, and I have always found asylum cases to be among the most compelling immigration cases.  I am excited to return to the non-profit world and provide services to the members of our community who are in great need.

Are you enjoying the Texas heat? 
Yes! Although I braved Midwest winters for eight years, I have once again become a Texas wimp and love the warm weather.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon? 
Hang out at the pool with friends or swim laps!
