Presented by The Immigration Law Section of the

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
|Michael T. Elliott
The Los Angeles County Bar Association's Immigration Law Section is offering a free Ask-a-Lawyer Program on Wednesday, May 3rd from 8 AM to 4 PM.
As part of National Law Day, attorneys will be providing free brief consultations on immigration legal questions on a "walk-up" basis at the courtyard located behind the Federal Building on 300 North Los Angeles Street, in downtown Los Angeles. The courtyard is accessible from Aliso Street on the north, from Alameda Street on the east, and from Temple Street on the south.
Attorneys experienced in immigration law will provide a summary of legal rights and general advice, and where appropriate, will refer individuals to the proper legal or government organizations, including the Los Angeles County Bar Association's Lawyer Referral and Information Service, which is the oldest and largest lawyer referral service in the country. Law Day attorneys will not provide specific counseling in individual cases, nor will they accept any cases from the people to whom they talk.
Law Day attorneys will answer general questions on immigration law, including questions on family immigration, employment-based immigration, naturalization, and deportation. They will also have commonly requested Immigration and Naturalization Services ("INS") forms available to the public.
