This week on Maximum Mom, your host Elise Buie is joined by Bridgette Bennett.
Bridgette is the CEO & Founding Attorney at the Bennett Law Center. Bridgette, or Attorney B as clients call her, is a U.S. immigrant. While she will tell you that her immigration story was a positive experience, the same could not be said for her husband’s immigration experience.
After immigration authorities attempted to deport her husband, Attorney Bennett realized she had a higher purpose in life. She left her corporate job to attend law school with the risk that she would lose everything she had built. Now, she is living her own American Dream.
As an immigration attorney, Bridgette can now tell clients that she knows exactly what they are going through, and will do everything in her power to help you achieve your own version of the American Dream.
