NJ Standout, Pricilla Saraf, Defending The Most Vulnerable
Pricilla Saraf is president and founder of Mori Law, a New Jersey-based law firm specialising in immigration law. In her practice, she advises clients on establishing and refining immigration programs, compliance, and complex immigration matters. Pricilla is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, licensed to practice law in New Jersey, and speaks Portuguese and Spanish. She is an attorney who cares immensely about her clients and local community.
While she currently focuses her practice primarily on business immigration, Pricilla Saraf began her career assisting low-income Latino clients with family-based immigration matters. Motivated by her own journey as a young immigrant from Brazil who resettled in New Jersey, Pricilla regularly volunteers her time with the local Latino community in Newark, NJ that first welcomed her own family all those years ago. Pricilla also regularly works with organisations such as Legal Services of New Jersey to provide pro bono immigration law services to low-income residents across the state.
As pro bono counsel she has represented detained individuals, successfully argued before immigration judges, and obtained permanent residence for asylees and refugees, including an African refugee being persecuted for sexual orientation. In 2017, Pricilla volunteered at Newark International Airport serving families and passengers impacted by the Muslim travel ban.
Pricilla has represented clients in the areas of DACA, Citizenship, U Visas, VAWA petitions, and family-based humanitarian matters. “My lawyer, Pricilla Saraf, gave me hope and comfort. My case was complicated, took a long time but she remained confident and provided her services for free. I was so happy she was by my side when I received my green card in September 2021,” says Dayse R.
Pricilla received her Bachelor of Science in Communications from the University of Florida, and her Juris Doctor from the University of North Carolina. In Law School, Pricilla was honoured for her service with the Immigration Clinic by the Carolina Public Interest Law Organisation at UNC School of law.
Pricilla feels fortunate to volunteer her time to compassionately defend and protect the most vulnerable.
