Immigration Lawyer: Why Attorney Lown practices Immigration Law
By Attorney Lown: My grandparents lived in a peaceful Jewish village with dirt roads called Utena, Lithuania. As the Nazi winds began to blow across Europe, my grandparents gathered some possessions and left. Six weeks later, Nazi collaborators marched into their village. They massacred nearly every mother, father, sister and brother. My grandparents' childhood friends were buried in mass graves.
My family immigrated to the United States and have since focused their life on fighting oppression. Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and the right to pursue a better life. This belief underlies the Lown Law Firm's immigration practice.
Criminal Defense Attorney: Why Attorney Lown practices Criminal Defense
By Attorney Lown: The snow falls as we stand with Delores Baker outside of the Baltimore super max prison. Her son Wesley is just now being strapped to a table and injected with a series of three lethal chemicals. The prisoners behind the window bars chant, “Don’t kill him!” Today, as in the months leading up to Wesley Baker’s execution, Baltimore and D.C. area organizations stage a protest. We emphasize that the evidence against Baker is weak, that death sentences are skewed according to race and geography. The lights somewhere on the eighth or ninth floor go out. Delores Baker, trembling, is shuffled off by relatives.
Protesting outside of the prison’s twenty-foot walls lined with razor wire as Wesley Baker was killed by our government, – this drove me to obtain my law degree and become a defense lawyer. I wanted additional tools to fight for social justice. As a defense lawyer I will utilize the highest efforts to defend my client's innocence.
