Hi, I have been searching for a pro borno immigration lawyer in New York City or New Jersey to help with filing VAWA case. I haven't found anyone so far. I tried Catholic Charities but they are too busy and said they currently don't have enough lawyers. Can you recommend a website with a list of Pro Bono immigration lawyers? Or agency? Or if you know a pro bono lawyer with expirience in Vawa cases please recommend. Thank you in advance.
Here are a couple of places to search: http://www.justice.gov/eoir/probono/states.htm

Also see what pro bono programs the New Jersey State Bar Association has. Good luck!

If you are getting help from a domestic abuse organization or in a place of safety - maybe a women's shelter - they will usually be able to refer you to someone to help. You might get free help from a nonprofit because the lawyer is paid by the org. Or you might get a reasonable fee or a payment plan from a local private lawyer. Or you may be lucky enough to find someone who has a few spare hours they choose to spend pro bono. You could also contact the immigration clinic of a local law school. Their staff attorneys and student interns might be able to help.
