Mid-South
Immigration Advocates

Seeking justice, protecting the vulnerable, & defending families.

Mid-south Immigration Advocates (MIA) is the first nonprofit law firm in the region whose core mission is to provide free and affordable immigration representation to low-income clients. Founded in 2013 by local immigration attorneys who recognized a need in our community for quality legal services, MIA empowers immigrant communities by helping people obtain economic security, maintain family unity, and escape violence.
