Pangea Legal Services, lowbono immigration support

Pangea Legal Services is a San Francisco collective of lawyers who are working to support immigrants with legal support — through a low-bono and pro-bono model that provides services on a sliding scale of fees.

Open Law Lab - Pangea Legal Services for immigrants with sliding scale fees


It works on asylum cases, deportations, DACA and U-visa applications, among other services. It also does policy work on behalf of immigrants.

Pangea’s ultimate goal is to be larger non-profit that provides legal services for fees that fit potential clients’ budgets — to bring greater access to legal support to immigrants.

Its self-description:


We envision a world where the fundamental right to move is respected and appreciated by all.  Our view is that all human beings are entitled to respect, documents, and a process through which to move, settle and resettle in the world.


The mission of Pangea Legal Services is to stand with immigrant communities and to provide services through direct legal representation, especially in the area of deportation defense.  In addition to direct legal services, we are committed to advocating on behalf of our community through policy advocacy, education, and legal empowerment efforts.

Organizationally, we aim to create a non-profit that is scalable through a sliding scale fee structure and can grow in immigrant communities around the United States.
