Pro Bono Representation: Make a Difference
Over the past 20 years the LACBA Pro Bono Representation Panel volunteer attorneys have helped over 4,000 immigrants remain in the United States with their families. Many persons in the Immigration Court are often represented by “notarios” and legal consultants. These notarios are prevalent in almost all the ethnic communities and often deprive immigrants of their legal rights and benefits under the law. Volunteer attorneys can make a difference by volunteering their services for this worthwhile panel.
The Panel partners with the Los Angeles Immigration Court to help Respondents (immigrants) at their Master Calendar hearings only. Volunteer attorneys are then matched with participating Respondents. Once Respondents are given counsel and advice they then proceed with the attorney back to the Immigration Judge to plead.
