The Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project (IRRP-NC) helps low-income immigrants with a variety of immigration matters and civil cases on issues affecting immigrant communities. Our attorneys and paralegals handle individual immigration cases and we also offer referrals to other community-based legal services programs. Unfortunately, we cannot accept walk-in clients. Our work is by appointment only.
