We are committed to providing services to members of the community who are either unable to access traditional legal services due to linguistic or cultural barriers, or are unable to pay for services.
Our commitment to community service includes:
We as a law firm, and a team, take great pride in accepting a certain number of cases every year where we provide services to individuals unable to pay for lawyer fees. We routinely accept representation pro bono on roughly 6-8 separate cases requiring at least 50-100 hours of work per case. These cases are generally for victims of violence (U-Visa); Applications for Political Asylum (generally children fleeing violence in South and Central America) and individuals seeking refuge from countries where they have either been subjected to torture or are afraid of being subjected to torture if returned.
We, as a team, love working with community organizations and traditional groups like houses of worship in organizing and conducting free seminars and information sessions on immigration issues of concern to the larger immigrant community in the greater Seattle area. In the past, we have organized and conducted free information sessions on various Immigration related matters for newly resettled refugees, newly arriving immigrants, and low income communities. If you would like us to address immigration issues you/your community faces, please feel free to contact us.
