  2. Don't expect to win. It will be hard to show they treated your case in a way that caused you harm.


  3. You will need to directly contact a few immigration attorneys in your area because attorneys are not allowed to 'bid' for a client.

    Gunda J. Brost Brost Law Office This advice does not form an attorney-client relationship and is merely informative. It should not by itself be relied upon to address a legal concern.


  4. You can file a petition for naturalization/writ of mandamus with the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. You should get an answer within 60 days of the lawsuit. Don't try to do it yourself.
