Legal Representation

How we help

A lawyer makes a difference. Immigrants with an attorney are up to five times more likely to be successful in their immigration cases than those without an attorney. GHIRP staff exhibit excellence and professionalism in every step of the legal process.  We believe that legal representation empowers our diverse clients and ensures access to justice in our complex immigration system.

Impact Stories

Our impact

Not having an attorney during an immigration court hearing would be like going unarmed into war without the necessary ammunition to ensure you or your family’s safety. During my hearings before the judge, of which there were three that lasted about 20 hours, Elizabeth was a mentor.  She guided and defended me with great intelligence, wisdom, assurance, and tenacity before every official we encountered in the process.

We were never alone. Elizabeth was always there to help me obtain my political asylum in the USA.
