Immigration attorneys at the Godoy Law Office are dedicated to helping individuals and families through the United States immigration process. Immigrating to the United States is a huge decision and often involves navigating through complicated immigration laws. Attorneys at the Godoy Law Office understand leaving your home and moving somewhere completely new can be daunting.

The community you join and the people you surround yourself with are significant when going through such a huge change in your life. Becoming a part of a supportive community can ease this transition, and oftentimes it only takes one person to make a positive impact on a new member of the community.

This being the case, the Godoy Law Office is proud to announce the Helpful Neighbor Nomination! Community members can nominate a neighbor who has gone out of their way to help another neighbor better integrate into the community. The winner of the Helpful Neighbor Nomination will receive a gift card worth up to $300, which he/she can use at the restaurant of his/her choice. The deadline to submit a nomination is September 19, 2021. To nominate a neighbor, fill out the form below!

2020 Helpful Neighbor Nomination Winner: Michael Melarkey

Reaction Statement:

Wow. I am absolutely blown away. I am not only shocked I was nominated, but also shocked by winning the Helpful Neighbor Nomination! I know there are plenty of people in the community doing great things and it’s an honor to be in that same grouping. It takes an entire community to make a change and I’m glad I am a part of it!

As we all know, there is a pandemic going on along with social injustice. Times have been hard for everyone, especially people of color. I was tired of sitting in the back seat and not standing up for something I believe in; equality. I went to Madison Meadows Park in Lombard and set up a lemonade stand and raised $1,200 for Color of Change! I could not have done it without the help of all my friends, for showing up and staying with me until it started to get dark out. There were people who were not able to make it to the lemonade stand, so with the help of technology, people from all across the United States were donating for this cause. From Hawaii to West Virginia, people were wanting to help raise money for COC. I am so proud of the outcome. I am so proud of everyone in the community who came out and wanted to fight social injustice.
