State Bar warns immigrants to watch out for fraudulent legal help

"Everyone in California deserves access to legal services. The recent federal immigration actions in California, uncertainty for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients, and the ongoing concerns faced by our immigrant communities increases the potential that unscrupulous people will seek to take advantage of those in the most dire need of legal help,” said Steven Moawad, chief trial counsel of the State Bar of California. “We want to be sure that all Californians know how to access the legal services they need and how to avoid and report fraud."
