CHIRLA provides a variety of immigration legal services at low cost to the community, including naturalization, DACA renewal, family petitions, asylum requests, and deportation defense. At a time when such services are scarce, CHIRLA works to give the high-quality legal representation that our community requires.
CHIRLA is recognized by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). Licensed attorneys supervise all legal staff, including accredited representatives and paralegals. We do not make appointments by phone. Prospective clients have to come to our weekly legal clinics, held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, to receive a one-hour consultation. The clinics open at 8 a.m., and it’s necessary to wait in line. Each clinic has a limited number of appointments, so it helps to arrive early. If you receive a consultation, there may be a nominal cost on a sliding scale.
If you need an immigration services consultation, please visit CHIRLA's headquarter offices on our legal clinic days: Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays, beginning at 8 a.m. We recommend arriving early to secure a place in line. We provide a limited number of in-person consultations according to our capacity and we cannot guarantee that everyone in line will be served that day. The consultation is $40 per person, but waivers apply. CHIRLA headquarters is located at 2533 W 3rd St #101, Los Angeles, CA 90057.
If you have other questions, please call our Immigrant Assistance Hotline.
Bilingual staff answer this line Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. It is also available 24/7 to leave a message. We generally return calls within 48 hours.
