There are many reasons why immigrants and their families need the services of an immigration attorney. We are here to help you and your family navigate the complex U.S. immigration system and secure the immigration status that you and your family members are eligible for.



Our Immigration Services Department offers affordable legal services to help eligible low-income immigrants and asylum seekers obtain immigration benefits in this country. We represent clients with all types of immigration cases, including family petitions; naturalization and citizenship; removal proceedings; protections for minors and for immigrant victims of crime; asylum; and deferred action, among others.

Our professional staff includes bilingual/bicultural attorneys and paralegals with years of experience practicing immigration law and working with immigrants. We are committed to working with individuals to secure the legal protections they may be eligible for.

Our Immigration Services Department does not accept cases regarding employment-based visas, tourist visas, student visas or legal representation of individuals detained by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).



Due to the complexity of immigration laws, we cannot answer questions over the phone. We see clients and prospective clients by scheduled appointments only.

On Fridays, we will only give appointments over the phone. Call Lilian Pleitez at 404.471.1889 to make an appointment. We will NOT attend to walk-ins on Fridays.
