Miriam Lacroix is dedicated to bettering the lives of immigrants and their families. Miriam graduated with high honors from Pace University with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science, focusing on civil rights and international human rights issues. After obtaining her bachelor’s degree Miriam obtained her Juris Doctor from Pace University School of Law, where she gained invaluable experience exploring the immigration process. During her final year in law school, she was a student attorney in the Immigrant Justice Clinic, where she represented a broad range of clients including two young girls from Senegal seeking to avoid genital mutilation and forced marriage.
After graduation, Miriam was chosen to serve as a Justice Fellow in the Immigrant Justice Corps, a program initiated by Chief Judge Robert Katzmann of the U.S. Court of Appeals as a response to crisis in legal representation for immigrants. She was placed at the City Bar Justice Center in New York, NY where she, for a period of two years, provided high-quality, pro bono legal assistance including: naturalization, deportation defense, and affirmative applications for juveniles and victims of crime, domestic violence, and human trafficking.
As the daughter of a Haitian immigrant, Miriam’s commitment to the immigrant community stems from her father’s experience with the U.S. immigration system. She understands the harsh realities that the complex immigration laws present for individuals and families, often leaving them without options and forcing families to be apart. It is because of this that she has dedicated herself and continues to dedicate herself to providing compassionate, high-quality legal services to immigrants.
Miriam is passionate, caring, understanding, and bright. She has helped many clients maintain and obtain legal status and, in turn, significantly improve their quality of life. She is truly enthusiastic about helping her clients achieve their goals, regardless of what they may be, and looks forward to successfully guiding you through this tiring, yet rewarding, process.
