Law team helps clients weave through immigration maze
Ellen Freeman, born Elena Kutseyko, came to the United States as a refugee from the former Soviet Union in 1993.
Since that time, she has married an American, changed her first name to Ellen, and become a lawyer at the Downtown law firm Cohen & Grigsby.
“I appreciate the United States very much,” Freeman said. “It was my dream to come here.”
An immigration lawyer who seeks to obtain work visas for foreign nationals, Freeman is constantly reminded of the contrast between her past and her present. And she knows that each day she holds clients’ futures in her hands, in the visa applications she handles for them.
