The Asylum Clinic KC offers free legal consultations to anyone referred to us through one of our many partner organizations, both locally and nationwide. We prioritize offering representation to unaccompanied minors who are released from Office of Refugee Resettlement shelters around the country to sponsors in the Kansas City area.
To increase access to excellent, affordable legal representation for marginalized and underserved immigrants in the Kansas City area through direct representation, pro se assistance, and community partnerships.
"Working with the refugee/immigrant community has been the most rewarding thing I've done in my legal career. Opportunities to make life-changing impacts on the lives of others don't come along every day. But they do when you handle someone's asylum application, their green card application, their citizenship application. It's wonderful for them…and for you."
