Braxton Howard Medlin

Immigration Attorney

In August 2021, New Bridges for Haitian Success welcomed a new volunteer: Braxton H. Medlin, Esq. Together, they have been able to provide much-needed resources to garner statewide support for immigrants and asylees seeking to assert their legal rights. NB4HS is the voice that strengthens and uplifts the Haitian and Afro-Caribbean communities, so all members feel self-sufficient and included. NB4HS assists approximately 3,000 unduplicated persons annually. Most clients, primarily Haitian, live in the Providence-Metro area, most in the City of Providence. NB4HS's core vision is to support Haitians living in Rhode Island seeking a new life and maximizesthe opportunities that exist. As having legal status in the United States presents a barrier to these bridges to new opportunities, having an attorney to help with legal consultations and representation is essential.
