Immigrant Community Law Center
Immigrant Community Law Center (ICLC) was founded by African Services Committee (a non-profit organization serving immigrants for thirty-five years) in 2012 to provide high-quality, affordable, and trustworthy immigration legal representation. ICLC is staffed by a dedicated and culturally competent multilingual team of qualified attorneys and paralegals. ICLC serves all immigrants of all backgrounds. ICLC seeks to empower each immigrant by: providing high-quality, affordable, and trustworthy immigration legal representation in a safe multilingual, culturally competent environment; combating predatory attorneys and unauthorized service providers whose legal assistance often causes negative consequences; creating a network of trusted community-based organizations and non-profit organizations; and speaking at associations, religious organizations, and schools to educate communities about rights and responsibilities in the United States, as well as proposed changes to and existing options under immigration law.
