Program caseworkers are committed to help individuals understand the immigration law and to know their rights under the law.
The program provides a broad range of immigration representation to immigrants and their families.

Our program is designed to advise clients through the immigration process. We consider client participation a critical piece to success.
We can only serve our clients effectively when we have their full cooperation. We cannot be held responsible for cases in which information has been misrepresented. We expect clients to remain in close contact and to inform us of any changes to their cases.
In the event that we do not have the client’s cooperation, we reserve the right to discontinue work and withdraw from the case.
