Ashkan and Jessica are fantastic immigration lawyers, and I cannot recommend them more. They patiently explained all the requirements for my O-1 Visa, had multiple Skype sessions, and followed up diligently with all the paperwork, going above and beyond. If you need an immigration lawyer, with personalised, professional service, Path Law Group are amazing.

I was referred to the lawyers at Pondeva & Sohrab for my divorce case from a colleague. After it was all said and done I can say they definitely exceeded my expectations - very knowledgable, always available when I needed to talk or set up an appointment. They worked hard till the very end of my case.

The Immigration Judge denied my motion to reopen of my 2010 in absentia order and relied on fairly new warnings on Form I-485, I was advised to keep USCIS updated of address changes for removal purposes. With the help of Atty. Lerner Appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals, that decision of the Immigration Judge was reversed, finding that the his decision was in error and that I was not properly advised of his hearing and that I did not receive notice of my hearing. Thank you.

I have an extensive experience of working with different immigration attorneys not only as an immigrant, but also as an immigration specialist. I worked with multiple attorneys, few different law firms both when I had no idea how US immigration law works and later when immigration became my passion and career. Genie is one of the attorneys that I would absolutely recommend to everyone. She is knowledgeable, experienced, responsive and really responsible for your case. She will not let you fail. She is always on the client's side and acts immediately. If you want to hire a trusted attorney, Genie is a great choice. Thank you, Joanna

We are very pleased with Mr Ron Kamran. He was available every step of the way in the process of getting my green card. I came across many lawyers prior to Mr. Kamran whom claimed to be unable to do anything for me, due to the fact that I was trying to get my green card through my job. When I came to the law office of Mr. Kamran he was able to help me out and explained everything in great detail on what to expect. Thanks to him both my wife and I were able to get our green cards. During the interview process the immigration officer was very rude and claimed that the documents presented to him did not make any sense, but Mr.Kamran made sure that the officer treated us fairly and spoke to his supervisor about the unacceptable behavior from the officer. He is an extremely knowledgeable man who keeps up to date on the legal processes regarding immigration. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer that truly cares for his clients. By far the best immigration lawyer I've met.

while talking to Gianfranco, I realized there are these kind of people like him, who never sack their help from people who really need help. I thought I have no any other option, and any other people to help , but just as I talked to him he advised me a lot of possible things which I had never heard, and allocated a lot of time to listen to me. I consider him to be the most professional Lawyer, and wish him good luck, success in his upcoming job with working people like me. And I always want him successful achievements because he deserves more than it

I hired a different lawyer and asked him to be passionate about our very sensitive case and fight with everything he had. Our first day of court he didn't even show but allowed for someone to come in his place outside his firm. Mrs. Middleton showed up in his place and is everything that I requested in a lawyer and person. I wanted someone who would help fight my case with the passion that I would as if it was her herself going through it. She has given us everything she has so far and I didn't get that with the first lawyer I hired. She will give you everything she can and she doesn't tell you what you want to hear but she does listen to what you want. I thank God for her everyday and even more so when I step into court knowing I have her on my side and speaking and fighting with passion love and care. Thank you for all you have done for my family.

Thank you Alex. I will be hiring you again in the future.

My clients are my practice - for that reason I am avaiable to my clients at their convenience and handle their matters with professionalism while focusing on keeping their costs down. What I enjoy most about my profession is the satisfaction I receive from taking on a challenge head on. I also greatly appreciate the good feeling I get from helping my clients during these difficult times.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does an immigration attorney do?

Immigration lawyers help their clients through all phases of the immigration process. Experts on immigration law, they are legally qualified to represent U.S. citizens, permanent residents or undocumented immigrants. Immigration lawyers also provide assistance to visitors here on student, work or travel visas, and can represent clients who may have an expired visa or who have overstayed their visa.

You can hire an immigration lawyer to assist you with petitioning for renewing a permanent resident or green card, navigating the naturalization process, submitting an employee-based petition for a work visa, filing a petition for a family member, or representing you or a loved one who is facing detention or deportation, as well as replacing, extending or changing a current visa, green card or work permit. The immigration process is highly complex, with multiple hearings, paperwork and requirements. Hiring a legal expert to represent you can help you make your best effort in the process. When researching immigration lawyers, it is very important to verify their qualifications and find a reputable attorney. Read reviews and verify that the immigration lawyer is licensed by your state before paying any fees.

How do you find a good immigration lawyer?

Research is key to finding a good immigration lawyer. The immigration process can be overwhelming and complex, so a trustworthy advocate is critical. When you have identified several eligible candidates, verify their immigration law license to protect yourself and your finances. Once you have a set of licensed immigration lawyers in mind, choose one based on these considerations:

  • Mutual respect: You want an immigration lawyer who treats you and your family with kindness and consideration. You’ll do the same for them.
  • Availability: Before hiring, note if they have responded promptly to your emails and calls. You don’t want to hire someone you have to chase around.
  • Proven success: Read former client reviews and research their success rate with cases similar to yours.
  • Transparent rates: Ask directly about what their rates are, how they bill, and what they estimate your legal fees will be. Ask if they will sign a fee agreement, and get receipts for all fees paid.
  • Verify who will handle your case: Sometimes junior lawyers work on firm cases. This is okay, as long as you have discussed it and are comfortable with it. When junior lawyers or paralegals are working on your case, ask if the hourly rate is lower.
  • Be wary of anyone who promises you specific results: No case is certain, and the immigration lawyer should be honest about what you can expect.

How much does an immigration lawyer cost?

Immigration lawyers are experts in the nuances of the highly complex United States immigration system. They help clients of all backgrounds petition for immigration status and become U.S. citizens, and can represent clients who are facing deportation or detention. Nationally, the cost people pay for immigration lawyers averages $500-$1,010. The services you need will have a huge effect on your costs. For routines cases, such as applying for a travel visa, an immigration lawyer may be able to confidently quote you a set price, while more open-ended cases may be billed at an hourly rate of $200-$500, or more, depending on the reputation and experience of the firm and lawyer. Before hiring an immigration lawyer, ask what their plan for your case is and what expected costs may be. Many immigration lawyers work from retainers, and request a set amount of money upfront from which to work. For example, a lawyer who charges $300 per hour may estimate $4,000 for a standard family-based immigration case, the common process in which a U.S. citizen petitions for permanent residency for their spouse, fiancee or family members.
