Make a Referral

Immigrant Legal Center’s attorneys play a key role in our communities’ immigration response. ILC accepts our colleagues’ most complex case referrals, including removal and complicated asylum applications.

ILC attorneys care about vulnerable immigrants and are committed to providing the highest quality immigration legal services to our clients. Our overall casework success rate is 93%.


The most efficient way to begin the referral process is to have the individual contact the Nebraska Immigration Legal Assistance Hotline.  NILAH is a collaboration developed by several immigrant-serving nonprofits to gather intake information and refer immigrants to area attorneys. Callers may ask for a referral to ILC.

Immigrants and their families need support

Immigration is a civil violation and yet, many immigrants who have lived peacefully in the U.S. for decades are being deported. Each day-parents are detained as they drop their children off at school. Workers are being picked up on the job. Mothers shopping with their children are taken away. 


Immigrants and their families need support as they face the uncertainty ahead.
