Eliminating Barriers to Justice for Immigrants

Through zealous representation, Galveston-Houston Immigrant Representation Project (GHIRP) ensures that immigrants in the community have equal access to due process in our complex immigration system.

About Us
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

“I was stuck in an immigration legal battle for years and finally in 2019-2020, I was unable to move forward—between the rock and the deep blue sea. In fact, it is a one-sided battle where I had no means or power to defend myself any longer, behind iron gates tightly closed.

In desperation, I wrote to some non-profit organizations and asked for help. Liz responded to me and was the first person I saw who took care of my case from the start."
