* WARNING TO CONSUMERS: It is illegal and unethical for an immigration attorney to guarantee you an outcome in your case. An attorney can give you an estimate of what they think your chances are based on their experience and your evidence but run away from anyone who guarantees you an outcome! Immigration law is complicated! Remember, if something sounds too good to be true, it likely is. Get another opinion!
We believe that all legal services with an immigration attorney, however small, should be in writing and always get copies of your filings. This is your life and your future!
