AILA Doc. No. 18061194 | Dated June 11, 2018
WASHINGTON, DC - The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) will recognize Helen L. Tarokic, of Wilmington, North Carolina, with the 2018 Sam Williamson Mentor Award, in acknowledgment of her outstanding efforts and excellent counsel to immigration attorneys by providing mentoring assistance. The award will be presented this week during AILA’s Annual Conference in San Francisco.
An AILA member since 2006, Ms. Tarokic has spoken on law practice management, paralegal training, business immigration, naturalization, U visas, human trafficking, and many other topics at AILA and other conferences. She has held leadership roles in the AILA Carolinas Chapter in the New Member’s Division and as Carolinas ICE Liaison, and she has been active on the listservs and social media to help mentor others to learn about new and creative case strategies.
Ms. Tarokic obtained her Juris Doctor from Wake Forest University School of Law in 2006, with awards for mentoring and promoting the concerns of women in the legal profession.
This is her first AILA National Award. Her goal is to mentor other lawyers to identify and assist trafficking victims in their communities, so that at least 5,000 trafficking victims receive T-1 status each year (#HitTheCap).
The American Immigration Lawyers Association is the national association of immigration lawyers established to promote justice, advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy, advance the quality of immigration and nationality law and practice, and enhance the professional development of its members.
