Legal Services

 Safely navigating the U.S. immigration legal system is fundamental for refugees and immigrants to rebuild their lives and regain a sense of belonging.  But they face many complicated and expensive legal hurdles on the path to citizenship, safety and to reuniting with their families. Without access to legal services, they can face dire consequences. But too few affordable options are available to newcomers.  

Our immigration team is filling the gap by offering high-quality, licensed legal services at low cost.
