Yes, but the real question is why will taking a lawyer with you make you feel safe. What is it that you are most worried about. If you take a lawyer with you, make sure you do not enter the building until your lawyer arrives. Secondly, ensure your lawyer thoroughly familiarizes him or herself with your N-400 application and any associated documents. Your lawyer should also ask you about your entire immigration history, going all the way back to your original entry. Your lawyer should prepare you for the interview by explaining what exactly is going to happen, the different adjudicators at your office and their "styles," and then quiz you on the naturalization exam. You also need to tell your lawyer if you have any disability or are on any medications. Remember to tell your lawyer what you are most nervous about. A good lawyer will make you feel safe, protected and PREPARED.
