Probably you have never hired an attorney and you are not sure how to proceed. Don’t worry, we will make the process as easy as possible.
Our main product is the personal attention we give to your case. We know that your future in the United States is at stake. This might be the most important legal issue you will ever face in your life. For that reason, we make no compromises when it comes to professional work: Your case will always be handled by an experienced attorney. That attorney exclusively practices immigration and criminal law and will be focused on your needs.
Your first call is free
The first step is: Call us. Tell us about your question or problem. We will check if we can help you. This first call is free. We will ask you a couple of questions about your case. This helps you to make sure that we can help you and your money is spent wisely. We might also be able to give you an idea of what range of costs you have to expect, but sometimes we first need to know more. .
The second step is a Consultation
We will schedule a consultation by phone or in our office. During this consultation we will discuss your case, answer all your questions, and show you your options. This consultation usually lasts between 30 min and an hour. We will charge you a consultation fee of $ 150. If you hire us for the same case, we will credit this fee to the costs.
Visa, Green Card and other applications
We will guide you through the whole process of immigrating to the United States. First we will carefully discuss all your options. Then we will file all applications, petitions and other necessary documents. We will prepare you for interviews and communicate for you with the authorities. In most cases we do not even need to meet in person, so we can help you with all your applications even if you are outside of the United States. In that case, we will work with you and the U.S. Consulate on your visa applications and other matters.
If you are charged with a crime we will immediately work on your defense. We will review with you the case and explain all the options you have: from fighting for dismissal, to a plea or to a trial in court. If a loved one has been arrested we will attempt to secure a release.
If you need to appeal we will review your case and present you all the options you might have. Then we will argue your appeal in the appropriate court.
Representation in Immigration Court
If you are in removal proceedings or your case needs to go to court, we will take your side and will be your advocate. We can represent you in Immigration Court, before the various agencies such as the Board of Immigration Appeals, and before the Federal District and Appeals Court.
What will it cost you?
We understand that you are concerned about costs. To help put your mind at peace we offer most of our services on a flat fee basis. That means, we will be able to quote you the cost up front, and we will not charge you anything after your first payment. There will be no surprises. Because every case is different, we can only tell you how much it will be, once we have discussed your case.
In some cases we will not know at the beginning, what amount of work we will have to put in your case. This often happens when we need to represent you in court. In this case, we will charge you by the hour we spend on your case. We will give you an estimate at the beginning of the case and will ask you to pay a retainer fee.
Our fees may not be the cheapest, yet, they are low, because we work very efficiently. And we will not bill you through the backdoor: we will never bill you for photocopies made, etc.
Payment of our fees is due at the beginning of the engagement and can be by check drawn onto an U.S. bank or by credit card. To keep your fees low we do not offer payment plans or contingency fees.
