Deirdre Giblin Immigration Attorney


Attorneys, Mental Health Professionals Team Up at Massachusetts Center | HealTorture.org

healtorture.org [cached]

It's not typical for attorneys and mental health professionals to serve clients as a team, but lawyer Deirdre Giblin said she couldn't imagine handling her asylum and refugee cases-often involving incidents of trauma and torture-any other way.
She is a part of an innovative program called the Refugee and Asylum Assistance Project (RAAP) at the Community Legal Services and Counseling Center in Cambridge, Mass., where lawyers and counselors team up to serve refugees. Aside from the obvious benefit to the client of having a professional counselor available to help them deal with those emotions-mental health can also be critical from a legal perspective, Giblin said. A client's mental health is key in their ability to provide credible testimony, and credible testimony is critical to the success of their case, she said. "A lawyer in the field cannot be successful with their client unless they have some good mental health support," she said. "We can't even think about having them prepare for a trial without their basic needs being met," Giblin said. They also use volunteer interpreters, Giblin said. On the counseling side, about 23 mental health professionals volunteer to evaluate clients. These clients are able to be seen for ongoing counseling and treatment as needed, Rohani said. Clients come from about 35 different countries per year, and the mix of countries of origin typically changes based on which parts of the world are in turmoil. "There's about a six-month lag time from what you see on the news, and what you see in our door," Giblin said. "It really helps the attorneys too, it doesn't just help clients," Giblin said.

Syrian Refugee Resettlement Information Session clarifies complex and pressing situation - Winchester MultiCultural Network

www.wmcn.org [cached]

The session, facilitated by Deirdre Giblin, Esq., an asylum attorney at Community Legal Services and Counseling Center in Cambridge, was well attended by over 60 people.
The presentation was informative, outlining the ways various government agencies are helping resettle Syrian refugees in this country. Attorney Giblin highlighted human rights and immigration law governing the situation and discussed how our community can helprefugees and their families. She put the current crisis in perspective in relation to how the U.S. has handled other refugee crises in the recent past. Attorney Giblin pointed out how complicated it is for families who are separated to be reunited. The process is long and take several years. During the Q & A, audience members asked many thoughtful questions among them the distinction between status of migrant due to economic situation and refugee due to persecution, how to do advocacy work, finding about refugees coming into the area, and how to gather information on what individual and family needs are. Ms. Giblin expanded on their concerns and gave detailed answers. Feedback after the session was positive with some remarking that her talk and accompanying slides clarified this complex and pressing situation.
