Fees

  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    A consultation with an immigration attorney can cost up to $400.00. I have both charged consultation fees of $75 - $100 and offered free consultations but have found that the majority of those seeking free consultations were there for free information and not to seriously pursue a strategy to improve or change their immigration status which became a drain on my time and unfair to the time commitment that clients who have already engaged my services deserved. I understand shopping around for deals and attorneys due to budget considerations but what one saves in a "cheaper deal" can be lost in court! In most cases, your immigration needs affect your whole life and that of family members that might be in consideration. Immigration law can be complex and not a "one size fits all" solution through the submittal of a single form or forms. In these consultations, a lawyer is dedicating his time and expertise to proper case analysis and strategy and should not be compared on the level of a 5 minute consultation with an immigration document preparation service or notario. Therefore, I charge a base rate of 50.00 per consultation and am willing to credit the consultation fee to a prospective client once a written agreement is entered into.
