From its inception, the Haitian Lawyers Association (HLA) has provided pro-bono legal representation to Haitian immigrants in matters relating to immigration, family law, civil rights, criminal law, juvenile law and housing. HLA has represented clients in federal, state and immigration courts.
Moreover, HLA has partnered with Legal Services of Greater Miami to provide free representation to families facing foreclosure and has conducted various community seminars to educate them on how to save their homes and to modify their loans. In addition to providing legal representation, HLA conducts a weekly radio show to educate members of the community about legal issues in the areas of immigration law, family law, unlicensed practice of law, and criminal law.
