Info for Legal Service Providers

The Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office is committed to working with immigration advocates.  The Immigration Unit can assist legal service providers in assessing the potential and actual adverse immigration consequences of prior criminal convictions and evaluate whether or not post-conviction relief will help individuals to qualify for immigration benefits/relief such as Adjustment of Status, LPR and Non-LPR Cancellation of Removal, and Naturalization.  You may contact our paralegals for additional information or you may submit our intake form.
