USCIS Statistics on Successful Petitions filed without legal counsel

Asked over 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

I read on several lawyer's web sites that USCIS reports that 67% of all USCIS applications and petitions filed by people without legal counsel are denied . I cannot find this statistic anywhere on USCIS's web site . Is this a real statistic ? If so , can someone provide a link ?
