I look forward to getting to know you and answering all of your immigration questions.
We call these appointments "Immigration Assessments."
You schedule your Immigration Assessment with me online.
Immigration assessments are offered in my office in Carrollton, Texas.
I also offer appointments by video call.
Video assessments are just like a regular office appointment, except for the fact that they occur through our video calling app. The same fee applies and must be paid in advance.
I do not provide legal advice or immigration assessments via E-mail. E-mail is not a secure form of communication and should not be used to discuss sensitive legal matters.
What happens during my Immigration Assessment?
During your immigration assessment, we dig deep.
I carefully listen, answer questions, help you set appropriate goals, and identify the results you want.
Then, I strategize your case, evaluating your eligibility for immigration benefits and your options as well as the time it will take you to get to where you want to be.
By the end of the Immigration Assessment, you will know whether you can achieve your immigration goals, how to go about attaining those goals, how long your case will take, and how much it will cost.
Your immigration assessment is confidential and subject to the attorney-client privilege.
At the end of your immigration assessment, I will let you know if I am willing to represent you. If so, I will quote you a fee in writing. I will also let you know how long I expect your case to take and what the next step will be.
If you become a client, you will receive a homework package and informational material about your case.
How Much Will My Immigration Case Cost?
If you want a quick answer to how much it will cost to reunite your family, get a Green card, invest in a U.S.-based business, or meet another immigration goal, that’s normal.
Perhaps asking how much “it” will cost isn’t the right question.
Or, at least, it’s not the right first question.
The right first question is: What does my family or business need?
Followed by: What's the best way to meet that need?
Once you establish what you need and the best way to attain that goal during an Immigration Assessment, I will usually quote you a fixed flat fee.
I use fixed fee billing in most matters so you will know exactly how much to pay.
In most cases, I am able to offer you a choice of payment plans, so you get to choose how and when your fee is paid.
So please don’t ask me how much “it” will cost until we go through the Immigration Assessment to determine what you actually need.
Immigration lawyer fees are based on the complexity of your case, the legal expertise required, and the value conveyed. Quoting fees over the phone or on a website would be irresponsible and most likely inaccurate.
Do You Offer Free Consultations?
I do not offer free consultations.
However, I do a free immigration Q&A most every week at www.facebook.com/WhittLaw and you are welcome to join and participate.
While I do not provide legal advice during the Q&A, I do share valuable information that will help you decide when and how to contact an immigration lawyer for help.
