Today we’d like to introduce you to Fitzgerald Mofor.
Hi Fitzgerald, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
Initially immersing myself in athletics, I was a high-achieving college football player. I played division one football at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.
I started thirty-five games, achieved all-conference honors my senior year, and won the first championship in school history. Subsequently, I chose not to pursue a career in football and pivoted to the legal field.
I am a legal intern at my father’s law office. Posterior to completing my master’s in legal studies at WashU in St. Louis, I will enter a JD program this fall to practice law and carry on the family tradition.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The transition has not been as smooth as I thought but nothing in life is worth having if it is easy.
Academia is a construct I have only taken seriously as of late. I am in “catch-up mode” when competing against other students when jostling for a position in law school. I am accustomed to struggling to achieve my goals.
To say the least I am comfortable being uncomfortable.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about the International Law Office of Bokwe Mofor?
My place of employment is at my father’s immigration law office. My responsibilities consist of client intake, drafting legal memorandums, conducting legal research, filing court documents, scheduling consultation dates for clients, and organizing files.
Assisted in investigating cases, collecting documents for court hearings, and researching the intricacies of international/immigration law. Specialized in helping clients understand the legal procedures and documents needed to obtain citizenship through naturalization.
Directed clients on how to review and submit asylum and visa applications. With the supervision of Bokwe Mofor who received an LLM from Georgetown Law Center and practiced international law at his firm for twenty-eight years, we have collectively acquired extensive knowledge in international law and litigation.
I am most proud of our client-first approach. We work zealously to legally represent clients seeking legal advocacy. I want readers to know our brand is predicated on giving immigrants an equal opportunity to enjoy the amenities America has to offer.
What does success mean to you?
Success is when one has a personal relationship with God and provides for his/her family mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially.
