  2. 2. Introduction  An alumni of Syracuse University School of Law, Christopher Stender is an immigration attorney and partner at Federal Immigration Counselors AZ. In addition to work, Christopher Stender uses his knowledge of immigration issues to support related organizations, such as the Florence Immigrant Refugee Rights Project (FIRRP). Established in 1989 by attorney Chris Brelje, FIRRP formed after a public plea by immigration judge John J. McCarrick that asked Arizona-based attorneys to compensate for the lack of a public defender system in immigration removal proceedings. Today, the project provides free legal services to more than 3,000 people and advocates for the humane treatment of immigrant detainees.
  3. 3. Florence Project  Fees for legal representation multiply quickly, and immigrant detainees may not have the financial resources to pay for services. To ensure there are enough lawyers willing to take on cases without payment, FIRRP instituted the Florence Project Pro Bono Program. The program is responsible for recruiting, training, and mentoring attorneys who accept immigration cases on a pro bono basis. Apart from helping with representation of individuals in deportation proceedings, pro bono attorneys also gain invaluable experience they continue to use throughout their careers.
