December 2, 2023— New York City-based non-profit Safe Passage Project recently highlighted Kellogg Hansen for a notable pro bono case. The Kellogg Hansen team, led by Ariela Migdal, represented four siblings who fled Honduras in the face of rampant gang violence and discrimination. The team advocated for the children in family court and immigration proceedings, obtaining Special Immigrant Juvenile Status for the four children. The team subsequently succeeded in closing or dismissing the deportation cases against each of them.

The two brothers just graduated from high school and the oldest sister is currently a high school senior. The youngest sister is seven years old and attends school in the Bronx, where the family lives. The clients and their mother are grateful to the firm for supporting their cases pro bono.

Katherine Tondrowski conducted extensive work on these cases in collaboration with Ariela, both in her capacity as an LAA and while in law school. After Katherine’s transition to an associate position, Taylor Phillips conducted additional work on these cases.
