Florida Bar Selects Broward Attorney Elizabeth Blandon to Lead Statewide Immigration Certification Committee

Elizabeth Blandon, founder of Weston-based law firm, has been appointed to chair Florida’s certification committee for immigration law experts.

 WESTON, FL: Florida Bar’s President-Elect has appointed attorney Elizabeth Blandon to serve as Chair of the Immigration and Nationality Law Certification Committee, effective July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019.

Elizabeth Blandon, founder of Blandon Law, has been practicing immigration law for twenty years and currently serves as the certification committee’s Vice Chair. As a Board-Certified immigration expert since 2010, she is among fewer than 100 immigration lawyers in Florida who have achieved this distinction.

Ms. Blandon is the recipient of the Broward County Hispanic Bar Association’s Bravo! Award for her leadership in public service, and the Broward County Bar Association’s 2017 Section Chair Award for her numerous educational seminars and volunteer activities. She is an advocate for victims of domestic violence and a tireless champion for those seeking asylum in the United States.

“This is a particularly complex time for immigration law. Now more than ever, it is crucial for Florida to have highly-experienced and competent immigration experts,” said attorney Elizabeth Blandon. “Any mistakes or missed information in a case can result in a foreign national being deported back to a country where they face danger and possible death. Our committee ensures that only the most qualified legal experts are Board Certified in Immigration and Nationality Law.”

In her 20 years of practice, Ms. Blandon has seen many complicated cases, from Venezuelan student protestor Marco Coello to Turkish Gülen supporters escaping persecution in their home country. She is available to provide expert analysis on immigration news and legal issues in English, Spanish or French.
