Hope
"InMotion gave me the hope of life. Because I am an immigrant, I didn’t know the laws of the United States. I didn’t know how to protect myself and my family. I appreciated inMotion’s assistance thathelped me to get legal residency. Also, I learned the laws and I now know how to protect myself and my family. I am very thankful to my volunteer lawyer and for inMotion’s assistance.I get quite emotional when I think of all the assistance I received from inMotion, without your assistance I’m afraid to think where I’d be today. InMotion is a godsend."

Respect
"My lawyers went above and beyond what they needed to do. I always felt like I was their top priority. I am a single mom and very often I could not find a sitter for our meetings. They arranged for someone o watch my son while we went over paper work. They helped me get my life back on track."

Empowerment
"My case was very hard and difficult. InMotion really helped me a lot and kept me informed with all steps and provided me with everything I needed, even a MetroCard and food, I would like to thank you uys for helping me. When I had nobody, no money, no friend and felt like my life was gonna be over, it made me strong and made a new woman who does not give up in life. Thank you so very much."
