Pro Bono Program (U.S.)

HIAS works with a generous network of pro bono attorneys in New York City* and the Washington, D.C. Metro Area to provide legal services to asylum seekers, asylees, and others who are seeking humanitarian relief. From short term and discrete projects, including adjustment of status applications, employment authorizations, and naturalization petitions, to direct representation cases including asylum and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, HIAS’ pro bono program helps further our goal of assisting clients from arrival through citizenship. 

Pro bono attorneys receive ongoing support from HIAS in the form of mentoring and access to a library of resources. As part of our effort to provide wraparound services, HIAS also provides pro bono attorneys with connections to its wide network of social services partners so that their clients can benefit from other vital resources while their cases are pending.

We are actively recruiting new Pro Bono Attorneys!  If you are interested in learning more about our Pro Bono Program in NYC and the DC Metro Area, please contact Pro Bono Program Manager Sarah Burrows at Sarah.Burrows@hias.org with “Pro Bono Program” in the subject line.

*HIAS’ Pro Bono Program in New York City would not be possible without the generous support of the New York Bar Foundation.
