“Our goal is simple. We provide excellent legal services to corporate and individual clients on their immigration matters. We ensure that our clients are represented by attorneys through all complex stages of litigation matters, business immigration, and family based immigration cases.” This is the promise that Neufville law firm offers to clients.
The man behind this promise is a 35-year-old Liberian native. Edward Dosa-Wea Neufville was born in Yekepa, Liberia. After the start of a bloody civil war in 1989 (which left the country in ruins and caused the deaths of more than 100,000 people), Neufville and his family were forced to flee from Liberia. They found refuge in neighboring Ivory Coast. The family later migrated to America and settled in Sumter, South Carolina. There, Neufville was able to finish his high schooling.
For health advocate and educator, Catherine Woyee‐Jones, children are the face of the future. Because they are the future, efforts must be made to promote their positive growth. The young Liberian native works to not only improve the academic performance of girls, from underserved populations, but also their physical health and well being through her non profit organization, The Huuman Initiative. Woyee‐Jones’ mission to help children started close to home.
Yvonne Butler is an obstetrician and gynecologist (native to Liberia). She recently began to fulfill her life long dream to take her medical practice overseas and make a difference on her native continent, Africa.
Jane Wlehdi Togba is a native of Liberia. Togba, a Howard University graduate, who holds a Masters degree in Elementary Education, is changing the way children and their parents experience education, with her interactive and educational enrichment program, FuNation Inc. The idea for FuNation came about while Togba was working as the director of a childcare center.
Parents at the center complained about the lack of enrichment programs for students. She then became inspired to create a program that would enrich student learning. Togba
“envisioned a nurturing place where children could grow -- physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. [She] did not believe that education should be taught in a competitive environment. Instead, she imagined an environment filled with the spirit to achieve.”
