What can I do to get a refund back from an immigration lawyer?!

Asked over 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

Hi there so I recently went to Latinos immigration and taxes in may wood ca,& went in for a consultation & they asked to leave a deposit for 475 but all I had was 200 I gave it to them because I was going to start my process with them unfortunately I lost my job and can't continue the process with the application I called about 3 times to see if I can withdraw my application and get my refund back they keep avoiding my phone calls and say they'll call back to talk to me and they still haven't. I would like to go in Thier office but it's pretty far for me to get there. they had no sign that says no refund and all the guy took from me to start the application was a copy of my I D and my address he hadn't actually started the process what do u experts advice me to do 200 $helps me to get by.

    Answered . This may not be an attorney's lawyer, but a notario. If that is the case, you may not get your money back. That is why you NEVER go to a notario. You need to do more homework.
