From the offices of Councilman David Greenfield:
Councilman David G. Greenfield and City University of New York are partnering to provide constituents with free immigration legal services by appointment at his Borough Park district office each month beginning next Wednesday, January 16th. All district residents with questions or issues concerning immigration law are urged to take advantage of this great opportunity to receive pro-bono legal advice directly and confidentially from an experienced immigration attorney. Services available include assisting lawful permanent residents file applications for citizenship following a consultation to determine their eligibility, among other topics and issues.
“I am proud to partner with CUNY to bring free professional legal services directly to my constituents. I know how important it is for people to get quality legal advice regarding immigration. I urge anyone with immigration-related questions or issues to schedule a confidential appointment immediately,” said Councilman Greenfield.
Meetings are by appointment only and take place during business hours on the second Wednesday of each month through June, so residents are urged to contact Councilman Greenfield’s district office to schedule a time to meet with the immigration attorney. Councilman Greenfield decided to bring these services directly to his constituents in his convenient Borough Park office due to the high number of immigration and citizenship cases his office has received. Since many residents were born abroad or have family in other countries, issues related to citizenship and immigration are very important locally. As a result, Councilman Greenfield and his staff have assisted with dozens of cases involving issues related to citizenship, green cards, visas, and renewing passports or expediting applications.
“Given the large number of foreign-born residents throughout the community, I am pleased to provide this legal service at no cost to my constituents. I hope that this initiative will save residents the trouble and expense of hiring an attorney, and I look forward to assisting many residents with their immigration or citizenship issues,” added Councilman Greenfield.
For more information or to schedule a free, confidential appointment with an immigration attorney, please call Councilman Greenfield’s office at (718) 853-2704.
