ILD Mission

Our mission is to promote justice through the provision of legal representation to underserved immigrant communities.

Immigrant Legal Defense (ILD) is a nonprofit agency dedicated to providing immigration legal services.  One of the most critical aspects in the delivery of high volume, high quality legal services is an experienced team of attorneys who work efficiently together.  Our team of directing and managing attorneys have worked together for many years. Our complementary expertise covering the full scope of immigration law and procedure, allowed us to represent thousands of unaccompanied minors, families seeking asylum, and individuals in detained and non-detained immigration proceedings throughout California.  Together, we have launched innovative programs and partnerships that are recognized as national models for both the delivery of critical immigration legal services and advocacy. Our team has now come together to form ILD to continue providing free legal services for immigrants and families in California.
