Consultation

Our Office receives a lot of case-specific questions via e-mail and phone each week. We cannot answer these without discussion, analysis or clarification. To do so would not only be inadequate, but could result in an incorrect conclusion leading to major legal problems for the person relying on an erroneous response based on insufficient facts.

Because of the complexities involved in immigration law, we believe that providing a quick response based on a small amount of information might do more harm than good. Therefore, we are not able to answer specific immigration related questions of non-clients. In order to answer case-specific questions, an initial consultation must be scheduled.

We provide Free Initial Consultation and Paid Consultation.

Free Initial Consultation

We do provide case-specific initial free consultation for those who wish to engage in the services of the firm.

  4. The costs of to be incurred in your case, which include attorney fees and USCIS filing fees;

We highly recommend that you attach your resume in your initial communication with us in order to obtain a comprehensive evaluation of your case. In your e-mail, please indicate how you would like to be contacted (e-mail, phone, etc). We guarantee to get our assessment back to you within two business days.
