How do I get started?
The most effective way to get moving on your case is to talk to an experienced, dedicated, and strategic lawyer. A meeting with our attorney will give you an opportunity to explain your situation, ask questions, and get answers. We have two types of consultations: (1) a Standard Consultation, which is an hour, and (2) an Extended Consultation, which is two hours. During either consultation, our attorney listens to the facts of your case, discusses strategies and steps involved, and provides answers to your questions. You can schedule both on this page (see below).
To make the most of the consultation, we advise that you:
If you seek any kind of employment-based visa (extraordinary ability, outstanding researcher/professors, multinational executive, or advanced degree):
- all published papers, articles or books,
- all your presentations, speeches or panel events, or exhibits,
- Awards or prizes,
- Articles about you on in any media, and
- List of any other contributions/work you've done.
For our regular hour-long immigration law consultation, we charge $325. We require a non-refundable deposit of $50 to reserve your spot, then get for the remaining balance ($275) just prior to the appointment. Please gather and digitize your immigration documentation (government notices, requests, and decisions) as well as everything you have filed with the government (forms and evidence).
If you want us to review documents, or if you have a complicated immigration history, or simply need more than an hour, we recommend you look into our extended consultation below the calendar for the regular consult.
For our two-hour extended consultation, or if you want us to review immigration forms, the fee is $475. We require a non-refundable deposit of $50 to reserve the spot, then the remaining amount prior to the consultation ($425). Please be prepared to email or upload your immigration documentation: visas, work permits, and any U.S. government correspondence, notices, requests for evidence, and decisions. We also ask that you gather everything that the government has sent: visa applications, decisions, forms, and evidence. Finally, if you have ever been arrested, please obtain "certified copies" of all your "dispositions" (i.e. the outcome of the case, which you would get at the court where you appeared).
We can meet with you on any video platform, by phone, or by pre-arranged in-person meeting.
