Pro Bono Services for Service Members
Immigration Paralegal Services is committed to assist attorneys who are willing to provide legal assistance to servicemembers, veterans, or their family members faced with U.S. immigration legal matters for a discounted price or pro bono.
Immigrants have served in and fought for the U.S. Military since the foundation of our Nation. According to the most recent data available from the Department of Defense, approximately more than 65,000 immigrants, both naturalized citizens, and non-citizens are active-duty members and about 8,000 join each year. Unfortunately, each year hundreds, if not thousands, of these servicemembers and their family members are directly impacted by our broken immigration system. Many of them are facing deportation or had already been deported from the United States in absence of their serious criminal convictions or for technical violations of immigration law.
The founder of Immigration Paralegal Services Mr. Mashi Duli, as a college student, sought to enlist in the U.S. Military Force but was turned away due to his then immigration status (F-1 Status). However, his passion and eagerness to support the U.S. Military continued despite his inability to enlist. While employed at the Michigan House of Representatives, he volunteered to designate fifty percent of his money to Michigan Soldiers Fund in case of his death.
Today Mr. Duli is proud to be a naturalized U.S. citizen and is grateful for the United States’ freedom and protection. Mr. Duli greatly values all U.S. military personnel, especially the immigrant servicemembers and veterans for risking their lives to protect and strengthen a homeland they valiantly serve and have served without even being recognized as naturalized Americans.
Immigration Paralegal Services is thankful for its service, dedication, and sacrifice to our great Nation. In conjunction with our clients (immigration attorneys), our firm is dedicated to assisting attorneys who are willing to help U.S. military personnel secure legal status for themselves and their immediate family members. So, if you have a client who is a veteran, current service member or U.S. military family member that needs assistance with his/her immigration matter, please call our office to discuss pro bono services.
