About Us

Lighthouse Immigration Legal Services (LILS) is a local Lowcountry non-profit organization dedicated to providing the highest quality of legal advocacy for low-income immigrants and their families who have been victims of crime in the United States. We also offer affordable immigration services for persons 18 and under. We represent clients in petitions and applications to US immigration services as well as representing clients in immigration courts.

LILS was created out of an awareness of a need for trustworthy and affordable legal assistance for the growing immigrant community in South Carolina.  Crimes can have severe impacts on families, and often times, immigrants do not have access to the same services as non-immigrants.  Through working in and with different victim services, we saw a need for immigration legal representation to help fill the gaps in the system.
