Patrick Suhrbier joined St. James Immigrant Assistance legal services office in the spring of 2015. He brings years of social service experience with immigrant communities along the Texas/Mexico border, in addition to interning with the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, where he gained a broad training in immigration legal assistance and advocacy work before becoming a Department of Justice Accredited Representative.  

Patrick holds a BA in Political Science and Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Colorado, and a certificate in Non-Profit Management from the University of Washington. He also lived and studied for four years in a small monastery in Nova Scotia, where he completed training that led to his professional certification as a hospital/hospice chaplain.  

At St. James, Patrick brings together the skills from his chaplain training with his experience and passion for immigrant rights.
