Do you offer a free consultation?
We charge $80 for our initial consultation. The initial consultation usually lasts an hour or longer depending on your matter. We will try to get to the bottom of your case, determine all options available to you, answer your questions, and come up with the best course of action for your case. In the event our services are retained, the cost of the initial consultation will be applied towards the total amount of the attorney’s fees.
My friend was your client and she recommended that I retain your services. You really helped her case and I would like you to do the same for me.
We are always happy when our former clients recommend our services to their friends and family members. We will do our best to achieve the best results in your case. However, please understand that all cases are different, and we are not allowed to, and will not, guarantee a specific outcome in your case. We do promise to handle your case with care and in accordance with the highest ethical standards.
When can you tell me how much I will have to pay for your services?
In most cases, we have a flat-fee arrangement with our clients. Our retainer agreement will specify particulars of our representation, describe legal services which we will be performing on your behalf, and set forth the amount of the attorney’s fees you will be required to pay in order to handle all aspects of your case. However, we will not be able to determine what needs to be done in your case and thus determine the amount of the attorney’s fees without first meeting with you, analyzing your situation and discussing issues specific to your case. Once we have completed such analysis (which, in most cases, would happen at the end of our initial consultation), we will discuss the amount of the attorney’s fees to be charged for our legal services.
Can I have the initial consultation over the phone?
We prefer to meet you at our office for the initial consultation. Such face-to-face meeting provides a more efficient setting for the immigration lawyer to analyze your matter. At the same time, in order to accommodate our prospective clients, we offer telephone consultations as well.
