Pandora's Box ??

I am in the middle of a challenging experience and wonder if anyone here has knowledge of how to get help from a good and reasonably priced immigration lawyer. I have friends who have come here from a desperate situation in a third world country and who are trying to gain legal status, but have not been accepted. They seem to have only received patches of help from volunteer organizations. They are living very marginally and in danger of being deported. Obviously, I would like to help if I could. They don't seem to have any legal help at this point, and are very unsure what to do. They themselves do not have any extra money for a lawyer and I would be willing to help out to some degree financially. My heart is breaking for this family.
This is a very complex issue that I have no previous experience with. Any positive suggestions or advice will be gratefully accepted.

Re: Pandora's Box ??

I would say to look for a church based refugee support service. I assume they have come in and then claimed asylum ? Or just overstaying with no application ?

The Sans Papier (Zürich) advice line would be a place to start:
