Non-citizens in Texas have never been more in need of pro bono representation in their immigration matters. As immigration law has grown evermore complex during the last 15 years, thousands of immigrants face their immigration matters on their own—without representation. Many non-citizens resort to unauthorized and unscrupulous outfits for what they think is help. Hear both attorney and client perspectives and be inspired to share your time and expertise with non-profit immigration programs in Texas.
