In addition, Pamela was the only immigration attorney appointed to Senators Warnock & Ossoff Federal Nominations Advisory Commission which reviewed candidates for the presidential appointments of U.S. District Court Justice, U.S. Attorney and U.S. Marshals.
As a true humanitarian, Pamela has dedicated countless of pro bono hours to assist her community. She is also the founder of 501(c)(3) nonprofit, The Love Project (TLP) 404.
