A consultation gives you the opportunity to speak with an experienced immigration attorney one-on-one and gives the attorney a better understanding of your case. The attorney will advise what options are available and recommend the best strategy for your situation. During the consultation the attorney will also provide you with a fee quote and application time-line. There is no time limit for the consultation; however, it generally lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. Our staff consists of Spanish and French speakers, and arrangements can be made with translators of other languages as well.
To schedule a consultation, please contact us.
