Kathryn (“Kate”) Brady has practiced as an Immigration & Nationality Law attorney since 2006 with extensive experience in family-based & employment-based petitions before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and the Department of State. She has represented a wide variety of clients before USCIS for applications for Adjustment of Status, applications to naturalize to become a U.S. citizen, and petitions for nonimmigrant workers. Her experience includes USCIS Motions to Reopen and/or Reconsider denials and appeals to the Administrative Appeals Office when benefits have been administratively denied. Additionally, she has assisted clients with Department of State applications for immigrant visas, including those requiring Waivers of Inadmissibility, and in proving derivative citizenship of foreign-born children of U.S citizen parents. Before joining the Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America, Kate represented clients in removal proceedings before the Executive Office of Immigration Review (“EOIR”) and the Board of Immigration Appeals.
Kate’s law practice blends her extensive knowledge of immigration law with federal civil litigation to assist clients in obtaining immigration benefits through the administrative processes, in removal proceedings, or in federal civil litigation. She regularly challenges DHS’s unlawful delays and discriminatory denials of MLFA’s clients’ applications for U.S. immigration benefits at USCIS, EOIR, and in multiple federal court jurisdictions, including filing a Writ of Certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court.
She obtained her law degree from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M School of Law) in Fort Worth, TX in May 2006. Kate earned a Bachelor of Science in Sociology with a concentration in Social Psychology from Brigham Young University. She is licensed to practice in the State of Texas, and is a member of the Missouri Bar. Kate has been a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association since 2007. She served on the board of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society’s Dallas Chapter in various positions from 2006 to 2019.
