We are a Not-For-Profit Immigration legal services provider organization. As such, we only deal with Immigration law; our staff attorneys, paralegals and counselors are all regularly trained and updated in this field. We specialize in family based Immigration law and applications such as ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS (I-485), ALIEN RELATIVE PETITIONS (I-130), NATURALIZATION (N-400) AND GREEN CARD REPLACEMENT (I-90) and many more.
There is a group called AILA (American Immigration Lawyer’s Association) which can be a very good resource for many different types of cases. Always ask for a lawyer that specializes in your type of case whether it be a Labor Certification, Deportation/Removal Proceedings, Asylum Adjustment etc.
Non-profit groups such as ours are also available and a good way to contact them is to call the New York Immigration Hotline; they have a current listing of these groups which have Attorneys, Accredited Reps and Paralegals available. Accredited Representatives are individuals who have been approved by the USCIS to represent applicants in Immigration matters. Some of the larger examples are Catholic Charities and Lutheran Immigration Services. There may be a long wait for an appointment.
