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 LEGAL ASSISTANCE: We as a law firm, and a team, take great pride 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.
We also regularly serve as volunteer attorneys for programs like Citizenship Day organized by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), and accept select number of cases for pro-bono representation for individuals seeking representation for Political Asylum or U-Visa assistance
- • COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: Kripa Upadhyay, the founder and principal attorney at Orbit Law, serves on various Board and Committees dedicated to advancement opportunities for minority attorneys. Currently serving on the Board of the South Asian Bar Association of Washington, she also serves as a member of the Law Alumni Board at Seattle University School of Law, and as a member of the Committee for Diversity at the Washington State Bar Association.
• MENTORING YOUNG IMMIGRANTS: Kripa is actively involved with a non-profit called “Running Peaceful” which she helped start. Designed as a mentorship and youth leadership development program, she currently works with youth between the ages of 6-16. Majority of the youth are residents of Yesler Terrace, the oldest Public Housing project in the Seattle area .
