Hagenimana Law PLLC was started as a small-fee law firm to bridge the gap of unrepresented individuals at immigration court hearings. Nationally, only 37 percent of all immigrants, and 14 percent of detained immigrants, secured legal representation. Unlike indigent criminal defendants who are entitled to an attorney at the government’s expense, deportation is not considered a punishment and those who are unable to procure legal counsel must represent themselves while the government is represented by experienced attorneys in the process. This was one of the reasons why Hagenimana Law PLLC was started.
