THE LOGAN FIRM, P.C. is here for you during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crises. While our office remains closed to the public in order to decrease the spread of the virus, we are still working hard to advocate on behalf of the immigrant community.
All client meetings will be conducted by phone, Skype, or Zoom. Fortunately, in this age of technology, we can still conduct our client meetings, consult with clients needing assistance, and work on cases in the same way we would if our office doors were open to the public.
Please do not hesitate to contact our office at 303-494-5209 if you have any questions or concerns about your case, or to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys.
If you need to get documents to our office, we highly recommend using a scanning app such as CamScan or GoogleDrive. You may also drop documents in the lockbox located outside our office door, or you may mail them directly to our office. Please do not mail original documents to our office.
We know this will be inconvenient for the time being, but we also know this step is essential for the protection of at-risk communities. We will keep fighting for you and your families as hard as ever and we will get through this challenging and unsettling time together. Again, please contact our office at 303-494-5209 if you have any questions or concerns regarding your immigration case. We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy during this unprecedented time.

Unemployment Benefits for Non-citizens
Unemployment benefits are NOT considered a public benefit and should not negatively affect a non-citizen’s immigration status or result in a public charge bar to permanent residence.
To be eligible for unemployment benefits, non-citizen workers have to meet the same requirements as U.S. citizens. Please visit https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdle/unemployment-insurance-worker-faqs to determine whether or not you are eligible to receive unemployment benefits in the state of Colorado, as requirements for these these benefits vary by state.
