Introduction • Immigration Attorney Christopher Stender serves as a partner of the Arizona-based Federal Immigration Counselors and is responsible for publishing several articles and opinions on legal topics related to immigration. Beyond his professional obligations as an attorney, Christopher Stender supports the Florence Immigration and Refugee Rights Project (FIRRP). Services provided by the FIRRP include the Florence Project Pro Bono Program. Dedicated to serving detained immigrants, the program provides attorneys with the necessary training and support to represent immigrants under detention in removal proceedings. It operates in conjunction with the organization’s Florence, Eloy, and Children’s Programs in order to recruit attorneys and connect them with qualified mentors. Pro bono attorneys may appear before several different courts depending on the stage of proceedings, including juvenile court, federal district courts, immigration judges, and the Board of Immigration Appeals. Furthermore, the attorneys handle a wide variety of cases that range from citizenship claims and political asylum to Convention Against Torture relief and cancellation of removal for legal permanent residents. The Florence Project Pro Bono Program also appoints pro bono attorneys with criminal law experience to seek post- conviction relief in certain cases.
