Things you should know
We like to think of ourselves as a law firm making a difference. This means that we offer a certain amount of pro-bono representation for those unable to afford any legal counsel. It means that we do not farm our your case to “agents”. Your case is individually handled by an attorney. While paralegals are used for routine tasks (and to keep the cost lower), we acknowledge and appreciate that you hired an attorney, not our support staff. We take this seriously. Our pledge to you is outlined in your bill-of-rights, our promise to each of our clients
There is no shortage of choices for you when determining how you wish to approach your immigration issues. Google will show you all of them! From respected large law firms, to solo practitioners to “online immigration websites” to off-shore resources to DIY kits. It is ultimately your choice. Here are some things you should consider:
Beware of any attorney or law firm that claims to have influence with the USCIS or other government agency. They are either lying or doing something illegal. Any ethical law firm will never make such a claim.
Beware of online agencies that are simply filing papers. They are not formulating a legal strategy that necessarily maximizes your chance of success. They rarely have an attorney available for you to call. And if or when things go wrong, more damage may have been done than can be corrected
