Help at our Free Immigration Consultations

Are you an immigration attorney that is interested in taking on some pro bono work? The Mayor’s Office for Immigrant Advancement hosts free immigration consultations on the first and third Wednesday of each month.

This volunteer opportunity involves an approximately three-hour commitment between 12 -3 p.m. on days of the consultations. Constituents receive a 15-20 minute consultation, during which they are provided with advice or referrals, or both, as appropriate.
