Immigration and the Military: Honoring our Service Members

Here at the Seattle immigration Law Office of Bonnie Stern Wasser, we are committed to serving the men and women in uniform and their families.  On this Veterans Day, we take pride in honoring our clients who are serving or who have served in the military, and the organizations that we assist in their help for military families.  In 2014, I have had the pleasure to serve on the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Military Assistance Project (MAP) Task Force.  The Task Force oversees this pro bono attorney program that recruits and trains immigration attorneys around the U.S. to represent military service members and their families with free legal services.  In addition, this firm takes on pro bono MAP cases for full representation. (Applicants must apply directly to MAP, however.)

In September 2014, I had the pleasure of teaching immigration law at the Seattle Coast Guard Station to the Judge Advocate General Corps and Legal Advice Attorneys. This event was a two-day conference sponsored by the Washington State Bar Association’s Section on Legal Assistance to Military Personnel. 

Our services include direct representation of active duty service men and women, as well as to veterans and their families. Services may include citizenship issues and/or immigration matters.  I am available to speak on these topics before JAG Officers and Legal Advice Attorneys at military bases in the Northwest upon request. Call (206) 282-2279 or email me at On this Veterans Day, a big thank you goes to those who have served on behalf of our country.
