Organizations mentioned/involved: Teton County Access to Justice Center (Jackson, WY)


Another nonprofit willing to help is Teton County Access to Justice. The organization hires attorneys to help low-income clients with all types of legal issues, but it has limited resources to help with immigration cases. Executive Director Barbara Prescott and two other attorneys have taken a comprehensive course in immigration law because they recognize the need for those services in Teton County.

“It’s like referring someone to a tax attorney,” Prescott said. “They need to know the law.”
