More than seventy percent of immigrant children in immigration court who have attorneys win their cases. Only thirteen percent of kids without attorneys are allowed to stay in the U.S.

WIAP envisions a community where all immigrants have access to legal counsel that is both reliable and financially feasible, and where every community member feels empowered to know and use the immigration laws to make informed decisions that keep families, neighborhoods, and our economy intact.

Our Work

WIAP provides accessible legal assistance to clients in need, offers immigration training to volunteer attorneys, serves as a public resource for reliable immigration information, and advocates for a community where immigrants feel welcome.

From our first phone call, I knew I was in the hands of an expert who genuinely cared about my immigration journey. Rosie is all the things you'd expect from an incredibly competent attorney--deeply knowledgeable, attentive to the details, quick, responsive, really good at explaining legal processes in ways I could easily understand, and up-to-date with immigration trends and timelines in the US. Today I am living my dreams as a US citizen, largely thanks to Rosie.

Living in this country with the fear of what may happen to me was so stressful. I worried constantly about being deported, separated from my children, returned to the life of violence and poverty that I left when I came to the USA.  Every day I carried that fear. I eventually decided to find somewhere to turn for help. I never could have imagined I’d be able to find such a smart, excellent attorney. Rosie knew how to explain the complex legal processes of the USA to me in a way that I could understand them easily. Today, I am a Permanent Resident and I can live my life in peace and full of hope.
