Last Updated On: 12/8/2017

Below is a directory of Colorado organizations that offer free or low cost immigration services.  Representation is not guaranteed.  The organizations below have agreed to be included in this directory, but that does not mean they must represent you.  You are encouraged to call several attorneys to find one who is willing to work with you and who you can afford.  Representation is a mutual decision that is left to you and the attorney.  No endorsement or recommendation is made of any organization or attorney.  This directory is not an attorney referral service, but is merely offered to assist you in narrowing your choices in selecting an attorney.

Abajo se encuentra un directorio de las organizaciones que ofrecen los servicios de inmigración gratis o de coste bajo. La representación no está garantizada. Las organizaciones (abajo listados) están de acuerdo de ser incluidos en este directorio, pero esto no significa que ellos deban representarle. Usted debe animarse para hablar con algunos abogados hasta encontrar alguno que pueda ofrecer el trabajar con usted, y que usted pueda pagar.  La representación es una decisión mutua que se hace entre usted y el abogado. No se aprueba, ni tampoco se recomienda ningún abogado. Este directorio parcial no es un directorio de recomendación de servicios, es simplemente una alternativa para ayudarlo en su búsqueda en seleccionar a un abogado.
