Immigration is at the very core of America’s national identity—founded by those escaping religious persecution—and it has remained central to the United States’ success and global reputation.
According to US Census Data (2019), the US is comprised of nearly 45 million immigrants, 77% of whom enter the country legally, jumping through the necessary hoops and contributing to society in a meaningful way.
Already under tremendous pressure, the US immigration system must find the resources to sustain yet another challenge—the processing of a potential influx of Ukrainian immigrants seeking refuge, asylum, and a path to US citizenship.
This quarter, renowned immigration lawyer Pricilla Saraf, steps up to face that challenge head on, offering her services to Ukrainians in need.

A Focus on Immigration
While she currently focuses her practice primarily on business immigration, Pricilla Saraf began her career assisting low-income Latino clients with family-based immigration matters. Motivated by her own journey as a young immigrant from Brazil who resettled in New Jersey, Pricilla regularly volunteers her time with the local Latino community in Newark, NJ that first welcomed her own family all those years ago. Pricilla also regularly works with organizations such as Legal Services of New Jersey to provide pro bono immigration law services to low-income residents across the state.
Areas of Representation
Pricilla has represented pro bono clients in the areas of Deferred Action of Childhood Arrival (DACA), Naturalizations, U Visas, VAWA petitions, and family-based humanitarian matters.
Pro Bono Counsel
As pro bono counsel, she has represented detained individuals, successfully argued before immigration judges on behalf of clients, and obtained permanent residence for asylees and refugees. In 2017, Pricilla volunteered at Newark International Airport serving families and passengers impacted by the Muslim travel ban.
“My lawyer, Pricilla Saraf, gave me hope and comfort. My case was complicated, took a long time but she remained confident. I was so happy she was by my side when I received my green card in September 2021,” says former pro bono client Dayse R.
Pricilla received her Bachelor of Science in Communications from the University of Florida, and her Juris Doctor from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2008, Pricilla was honored for her service with the Immigration Clinic by the Carolina Public Interest Law Organization at UNC School of law.
