LACBA Immigration Court Pro Bono Representation Panel

MAKE A DIFFERENCE: Volunteer Immigration Attorneys needed LACBA Immigration Court Pro Bono Representation Panel

Program Title: LACBA Immigration Court Pro Bono Representation Panel

Presented by LACBA’s Immigration Legal Assistance Project

Over the past 19 years the Pro Bono Representation Panel volunteer attorneys have helped over 4,000 persons remain in the United States with their families. Many persons in the Immigration Court are often represented by “notaries” and legal consultants. These notaries and legal consultants are prevalent in almost all the ethnic communities and often deprive persons of their legal rights and benefits under the immigration law. Volunteer immigration attorneys can make a difference by volunteering their services for this worthwhile panel.

The Panel operates on Wednesday & Friday morning, when pro bono attorneys show up at designated courtrooms for 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 do pleadings.

Each participating attorney will be asked to do one master calendar hearing per month, for 6 months, or what your schedule will allow.  Maribel Reynoso, the Panel coordinator, will try and be as flexible as possible.

If you would like to participate, please join us for this training.  Remember Pro bono representation is only for the first master calendar appearance.  Immigration Court experience is preferred, but not necessary. 

Maribel Reynoso, Attorney & Panel Coordinator
