Ethan Pham, an attorney out of Gwinnett County, teamed up with Gwinnett officials to raise awareness about scams facing immigrants seeking legal help. Too often, scam artists pose as attorneys when they are in fact unlicensed, take money from immigrants seeking help with the visa process, and then fail to do as they promised. The results can be devastating. In addition to losing funds, the victims’ paperwork may be faulty or not done, potentially resulting in deportation.
Pham joined Gwinnett County Solicitor Rosanna Szabo, other attorneys, law enforcement officers, and government officials for a press conference to, in their words, “speak out against scam lawyers who target the immigrant community.” They also released short videos in English, Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese and Chinese.
Ethan Pham is dedicated to serving all residents of the 7th District.
