Immigration Legal Advice Clinic

About the Clinic

In order to address the growing need for legal immigration services in the District, the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, along with a number of partners, sponsors an Immigration Legal Advice and Referral Clinic to provide free consultations to area residents.

The clinic provides legal information, brief advice, and referral services. Bilingual attorneys and interpreters are available for visitors who speak Spanish, Amharic, Chinese, and other languages as requested. Visitors to the clinic will be able to receive assistance from volunteer attorneys with civil legal problems governed by federal U.S. immigration laws.

If brief service is not enough to resolve the problem or if a different type of service is required, clinic volunteers will attempt to refer individuals to or provide information about a legal or social service provider appropriately suited to handle the case.

The services at the clinic are provided free of charge. Visitors are encouraged to bring all of the documents concerning their legal issue to the clinic. Bringing these documents will assist volunteers in providing a better service.

If you are interested in volunteering with the clinic, please contact Jenadee Nanini at [email protected].
