About the Presenter: 

Brian Hoffman is a recent addition to Catholic Charities, returning home to Ohio after several years of developing and leading pro bono projects for ICE detainees in Texas and Georgia. Through his leadership of the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project and the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative, Brian has represented thousands of women, children, and adult men in immigration custody. He has fought many cases involving immigration detainees who are survivors of sexual violence (including children), and whose past harm has diminished their capacity to testify. His recent work includes extensive collaboration with mental health evaluators, and advocacy on behalf of detainees with various degrees of mental health challenges. He has presented at national conferences on the topic of working with expert witnesses, and continues to advocate for greater inclusion of mental health professionals in immigration cases. He received his J.D. from The Ohio State University in 2009 and worked in private immigration practice before leaving to work at the border in 2015. He is one of three Ohio attorneys who are also licensed by the Ohio Supreme Court as Spanish-language judicial interpreters, and frequently combines issues of diminished capacity with rare-language and interpreter accuracy issues in his litigation.
