New JFON DFW Staff Attorney

Graham Bateman PhotoThe JFON DFW Board is pleased to announce the hiring of Graham Bateman as the new Staff Attorney. About her new position, Graham says, “I treasure the opportunity to improve the lives of our disadvantaged immigrant neighbors.”

She brings a depth of experience to the role, having practiced law since 1986 and served several years as the Attorney and Director of a faith-based, non-profit immigration legal services organization very similar to JFON DFW.

She likes to be an active part of the community of which she is a part, and hopes to be a face for JFON in the area. Graham has a natural gift for connecting with those around her, and for creating links between people that enhance their lives.

She brings an enthusiasm for the work, a compassion for the people she serves, and a desire to have an impact on a community through a not-for-profit organization, as she has in the past. “The need is enormous, but we can make a real difference through JFON DFW!”

Graham started with JFON DFW on October 1st. She says, “This is the perfect place for me. It’s my Dream Job!”
