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:

FREE REPRESENTATION

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.

COMMUNITY SEMINARS

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.

    Kripa Upadhyay, Orbit Law's Managing Partner, held a training session for staff of InterIm CDA to help them better understand the current Immigration landscape and the impact of various Immigration policies on Immigrant communities.

    InterIm provides a wide range of support services for members of Seattle's low income and Immigrant communities, and we have an agreement to conduct monthly training/review sessions to ensure that the staff who work as case managers for programs such as youth development, housing assistance, assistance for survivors of violence have the information and resources needed to advocate for and assist their clients.
