Legal Clinics


For all legal services, please bring any form of photo identification, proof of income (paystub, medical records, bank statements, etc), and any or all documents related to your legal questions.

We provide free legal advice and services primarily in the area of deportation. Each year, we serve hundreds of immigrants who are facing deportation. We specialize in deportation cases involving criminal convictions. For San Francisco residents, we also provide advice and services in the areas of adjustment of status (becoming a permanent resident) and naturalization (becoming a citizen). For assistance with these types of cases, call us to make an appointment for the immigration clinic.
