Why Not to Do It Yourself, You Need an Expert on ALL Immigration Cases

It happens every day.

I see at least one person with the same problem.

The type of immigration case is often different, but the mistake repeats itself over and over.

Our meeting frequently starts with this individual saying: “I should have called you in the beginning but I thought I could handle it myself”

Another version inevitably goes like this: “I hired another attorney who said that he could handle my case, but it turned out that he did not concentrate in immigration law. Now everything is a mess.”

I ask again and again, “Why did you wait to call me?”

Here is Why Not to Do It Yourself, You Need an Expert on ALL Immigration Cases.

Sometimes they answer that they were trying to save money, although I typically charge less than many other attorneys.
Sometimes they say that they did not know better, that they were misled.
And sometimes they have no explanation.

It is very sad. I want to help everyone but I cannot.

There are more folks out there than ever before, trying out immigration as a new venture.
I have close to 18 years and thousands of cases in my one and only area of work.

MY team is strong and we take our clients’ cases and lives seriously.

So please think carefully before you try to do it yourself or choose your representation randomly.

Like I have told so many people who have used the expression “shopping around for a lawyer,” this is not like looking for new shoes or a new car.
