We are continuing to offer our vital legal immigration services during the mandatory shelter-in-place ordinance. As your safety and health and that of our employees is our top priority during this pandemic, we are conducting all consultations by appointment and over the phone. To start the process, please complete the registration form (scroll down on your mobile, at right on your computer) to start the process.

The first step to open a case is the initial consultation which determines eligibility for certain benefits and/or remedies. We will be offering 40 consults every Monday on a first come, first served basis. Please fill out the registration form (scroll down on your mobile, at right on your computer)  as soon as possible to secure an appointment.

If you are among the first 40 people to register, you will receive a confirmation email. On the Monday following your registration, we will call you and provide your legal consultation over the phone. If you do not get a confirmation email, please return to this web page and register for the following week.

Our key mission is to assist clients in achieving legal status and economic self-sufficiency, as well as, becoming fully active participants in the social and civic life of our communities.
