The Legal Clinic (TLC) provides confidential, compassionate and free immigration legal services to financially-eligible immigrants and COFA* residents in Hawaiʻi.

The Legal Clinic is a non-governmental, non-profit organization, and does not share client information with the government.

TLC’s mission is to restore hope, dignity, and justice for low-income immigrants through high-quality immigration legal services, education and advocacy.
