CLI- is a great resource to help with your immigration needs. They were able to help my aunt process her green card renewal paperwork. The staff was professional and bilingual, which was perfect for her to be helped. They also offer low income services. Reach out to them and see how they can help you.


Professional, Reassuring, Knowledgeable, Effective 

When you are a divorced, full-time working single mom, it is difficult to navigate the process of co-parenting and providing for your children.  After many years of being the sole provider for our two children, I had to seek out affordable professional legal services.  I was fortunate to have come across Community Lawyer Inc. after searching online   Once I made contact for services, I was promptly contacted to schedule my first initial consultation which was only a donated fee of $30.00.  Once I explained my case to the lawyer assigned to my case, she was very knowledgeable and reassuring that all legal forms completed by her office would be effective in moving forward in my case.  The legal forms completed were only an additional $50.00. Well, I am happy to report that I obtained an order for child support through the help and service of Community Lawyer Inc.  I highly recommend them for any family court needs.

I am so very thankful that my good friend shared this awesome team of professionals with me! I was finally ready to proceed with filing for a divorce from my abusive husband and they were there to support me with information. I must say their listening skills are impeccable and I can tell that they were there to help me the best way possible. The team had superb communication skills and worked fast to get the job done. I would recommend them to anyone that needs the assistance. Thank you, Community Lawyers, for all that you do.
