Asked over 2 years ago - Los Angeles, CA

Which immigration attorney has the highest fees in Los Angeles?

I know my question is broad and it depends case to case but we all know about branding.... like a car is a car, there is KIA also and a BMW also.

So, in general who has the highest fees? I have this absurd notion that Costliest is the best!

    Answered . O.K. - While its true that you get what you pay for, I'm not sure if "overpaying" necessarily gets you the best.

    Its my belief that there are 3 types of immigration clients that use attorneys:

    1. Those who have straight forward cases but don't have the sophistication and/or language abilities to do it themselves (though I've seen a lot of smart and sophisticated people screw up their own cases!);

    2. Those who are quite capable of doing it by themselves but have too many other "important" things, like making money, work, family, and living with less stress, that they hire a lawyer to do it right and do it fast (as opposed to learning how to do it on their own or spouse's case);

    3. And those who really really need a lawyer.

    There are also different types of immigration lawyers.... but I won't go into that.

    However, if you believe the best is the most expensive, please let me know and I'll double my legal fees just for you :) !!! (P.S. I hear KIA's aren't that bad a car - though I drive a BMW).

    Answered . Impossible to answer your question. It depends on the specific case and the lawyer's experience. There are some fantastic immigration attorneys in California and the rest of the US. Because immigration law is federal, we get to practice across border lines. Bottom line, fees do not matter. What really matters is how confident and comfortable you feel about your attorney representing you.

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues. You should not hire an attorney based on fee alone. If you still would like to hire the law firm with highest fee, you probably need to hire one of those large international law firms.

    This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice.... more
