David Poe and Seth Lucia Assist Salvadoran Refugee Seeking Asylum in the United States

Partner David Poe and Counsel Seth Lucia, both members of the firm’s energy regulations practice, are assisting a 15-year-old who fled violence in El Salvador and is requesting asylum in the United States. Poe was connected to the teenage client through the American Bar Association’s Immigrant Child Advocacy Network, which matched him to the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights Coalition, a nonprofit organization representing immigrant men, women and children at risk of detention and deportation in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Poe is a former ABA Board of Governors liaison to the Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service.
