Our firm and staff have longstanding tradition of community involvement in order to promote outreach and education in the areas of civil rights and the positive evolution of our immigration laws and system. We proudly participate and partner with many nonprofit organizations, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the Mexican Consulate in Albuquerque, the Immigration Section of the NM Bar, and the University of New Mexico School of Law (UNMSOL). Since 2009, Rebecca Kitson has taught courses in Immigration Law at UNMSOL in support of educating future attorneys. To that same end, she has committed herself to consistently presenting at the state and national level to educate attorneys and the public. Likewise, Roxie Rawls-De Santiago teaches as an adjunct professor at the UNMSOL, presents widely, and advises state and local institutions.
RKL serves as contract counsel for immigration matters for the University of New Mexico, and likewise serves as immigration counsel to a number of state and federal institutions in their immigration matters. In particular, the firm supports international teachers and their employers throughout the state of New Mexico. The firm appreciates and honors New Mexico’s unique relationship with art, inspiration and creativity. RKL provides professional immigration legal support for the art and film industries in New Mexico. The firm’s attorneys represent immigrants and their employers in front of federal agencies, the Executive Office for Immigration Review (the immigration courts), Federal district courts and the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. All of the attorneys at RKL are fierce advocates willing to secure successful cases through whichever appellate level is necessary.
