Who’s the Best Immigration Lawyer?
By: Harlan York
November 18, 2013
“We can do anything we want to if we stick to it long enough.” – Helen Keller
Helen Keller famously could not see or hear but she graduated from Radcliffe, the prestigious women’s college now part of Harvard.
  • Perhaps most amazing was her accomplishment of learning to speak.
  • Think about this.
  • She could not hear a sound and she talked.
  • Yet she was often critical of herself for not speaking more clearly.
The best immigration lawyer requires this type of inspiration.
We have a number of very tough cases right now.  We must think of a person living in a world of darkness and silence.  Does she give up? No, she fights harder to improve things all the time, not just for herself but for others.
The best immigration lawyer thinks of nothing but getting better every day.
Humility is a constant  in our lives and work.
I am fond of quoting a saying similar to that of Helen Keller’s “We can do anything we want to if we stick to it long enough.”
One of my oft-repeated phrases comes from Anderson Silva, a man like many of my clients, who was born in Brazil.
Arguably the greatest mixed martial artist of all time, Silva stated,  “I am not the best, but I am capable of achieving the impossible.”
The best immigration lawyer does not say that he or she is the best but believes that the impossible is possible.
When the government sends papers to the wrong office or issues a denial based on improper law, which does not happen often with our cases – but even once is too much – we have to strengthen our resolve and fight harder.
The best immigration lawyer never gives up.
The best immigration lawyers know that they can do anything they want as long as we stick to it long enough.
