- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I operate on a fixed fee system. This is beneficial for the client because they know exactly how much they will pay in legal fees. Legal fees do not include government filing fees which are paid separately. I offer several payment options: all up front, broken up into 2 payments, or payment plan which is agreeable to both parties.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start with an initial consultation to discuss immigration status, client goals, and establish immigration eligibility. If hired, sign a retainer agreement and obtain retainer fee. Once the fee has been paid I give the client the list of required documents and information we need to move forward with the case. Once I receive the requested documentation and information I complete the necessary forms and compile the petition/application for USCIS. Once I have completed the forms they are sent to the client for signature to be returned with any outstanding documentation or information, government filing fees, and outstanding legal fee payment. Once I receive the signed forms and have all necessary documentation and fees, the petition/application is filed with the appropriate government agency.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a Virginia licensed attorney. I began my career in immigration law as a law clerk while in law school. Since then I have been a immigration case manager, associate attorney, and owner of my immigration practice. My experience includes working for high volume immigration practices which focused on all aspects of immigration law including but not limited to: employment based petitions, family-based petitions, fiance, adjustment of status, consular processing, naturalization, citizenship, deportation, and removal.
