The Immigrant Defenders Law Center (ImmDef) is a progressive, social justice law firm that provides high-quality representation and legal services to immigrants in Southern California. Our staff is comprised of advocates and activists from the immigrant rights community who collectively have decades of experience fighting for the rights of immigrants in Southern California and beyond. Learn more about our incredible team here.
Our current practice focuses on the most marginalized groups of immigrants who are facing deportation proceedings: unaccompanied children and mentally incompetent adults. Without our services, our clients would be forced to face these complicated and high-stakes court proceedings alone since there is no “public defender” system for immigrants in the United States.
