Our people talking about the Center

I am very satisfied with all the help I was provided in order to prepare my documents for my court case process. On this occasion, I was personally advised from the court to come to this office to receive help; it was my first time requesting services at the Center of Help. I feel one hundred percent supported with the translations, copies, advice and the assistance I received completing the court applications. Sincerely, Guillermina Guzman
