Defending Immigrants' Rights
Through our Center for Citizenship and Legal Immigration, MCOHA defends immigrants of diverse ages, nationalities, and situations inside and out of the courtroom through critical legal representation and assistance, education, and advocacy.
Providing Low-Cost Critical Legal Representation
Navigating the U.S. Immigration system is complicated, at best. Inside and outside the courtroom, our expert immigration attorneys work to provide clients with the best legal defense, while guiding them through their process in a compassionate way. We stand by, represent, and defend immigrants through family petitions, DACA processes, Asylum claims, assistance for Unaccompanied Minors and Removal Proceedings, Citizenship/Naturalization, assistance for Survivors of Domestic Violence and other violent crimes, Waivers, and many more.
Educating and Advocating
Our team goes beyond providing critical legal services and further defends immigrants by informing and educating them, and advocating for them in the community. The attorneys go out to the community and participate in Know Your Rights forums and DACA panels, among others. Furthermore, we offer citizenship classes and work with clients directly to foster and provide support in seeking tutoring and pursuing Higher Education.
Accessing Key Opportunities and Resources
Through the Center for Citizenship and Legal Immigration, Immigrants of different nationalities, ages, and situations get access to more than just high-quality legal representation. Our expert teams take the time to identify other opportunities and resources that clients could benefit from, and try their best to assist them however possible to ensure they become well-adjusted and thriving individuals.
