Immigration Law Section

Immigration is as old as America itself and the United States remains the number one destination for immigrants from all over the world. Immigration attorneys represent them and/or their employers, schools, or family members.

The newly formed CCCBA Immigration Law Section strives to support the work of Contra Costa's immigration attorneys and promote the best possible immigration services in our county and beyond. The section provides continuing education, training and mentoring for immigration attorneys. We also assist attorneys in the overlap between Immigration law and other practices - eg., employment, juvenile, family, criminal, business & estate planning and probate. Finally, our section works to promote events and programs that make Immigration Law accessible to those who need it.

CCCBA through its Lawyer Referral and Information Service, holds monthly Immigration workshops at local libraries. If you are interested in volunteering for one of the workshops please contact Anne Wolf, Education and Programs Coordinator, at or (925) 370-2540.
