Legal Services

Our in-house team of attorneys and legal representatives help their clients navigate the US citizenship and immigration system, keeping families together, and building a greater sense of security. 

Our attorneys and DOJ-accredited representatives assist with a variety of immigration related concerns, including:

  • Citizenship & naturalization 
  • Renewal of Permanent Resident Cards (Green Card) 
  • Family petitions 
  • Adjustments of status 
  • Consular processing 
  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) 
  • Waivers of inadmissibility 
  • Asylum 
  • Representation in removal proceedings 
  • U-visa for victims of certain crimes 
  • VAWA for certain survivors of domestic violence 
  • Public benefit eligibility

Citizenship Classes

We also offer a free 12-week course in both English and Spanish to help individuals prepare for and succeed in their naturalization exams and interviews, including topics in US history and civics, and reading and writing. 

Our Impact

We've provided assistance to over 10,000 Legal Permanent Residents applying for naturalization.

Last year, we helped over 300 clients file DACA renewals and over 100 clients apply for naturalization.

Our Legal Services team has a 96% approval rating of applications filed.

We hosted citizenship workshops with the help of attorney volunteers and community volunteers to serve over 80 citizenship applicants in 2020.
