Our family consulted Min Won Cho regarding a 7-year old immigration case. Prior to meeting with him, we had worked with several immigration attorneys who were not successful in reversing the decision made by US Immigration authorities. Needless to say, this experience left us discouraged, disheartened, and overwhelmed. Upon meeting with Min Won, we were impressed with his honesty. He was 100% upfront, never giving us any false hope. Mr. Cho kept our feet to the ground and did not present us with expectations of something he was not absolutely sure of. We immediately felt confident he was “The Attorney” we needed. Min Won’s dedication to our case and attention to detail paid off. He was able to discover an important aspect that was overlooked by other attorneys but ended up being crucial in winning our case. Our family was finally reunited and we owe it all to Min Won. Mr. Cho’s impeccable ethics and an unparalleled work ethic make him an outstanding attorney who is capable, meticulous, and diligent. We highly recommend Min Won Cho to anyone who is in need of an amazing Immigration Attorney. The Bezhenar Family, Syracuse NY

It's crazy that I've actually never met her in person. I could've but I didn't have to. Because she is always quick to respond to any of my questions and work REALLY hard for the case. After I've submitted all the documentations to her it only took 2 weeks for her to apply for my O-1B visa. I highly recommend Dorothea if you're looking for an immigration lawyer.

Shachar Malachovsky is very experienced and professional in his field. Shachar helped me to obtain my green card. He was on top of the things since day 1 and took really good care of everything: from filling paper work to preparation for the interview. Throughout the entire process he was guiding me and my husband and giving valuable advice pertaining to the case and giving answers to all other questions we had. I will definitely recommend Malachovsky Law Offices to everyone!

Tsui is an excellent, effective and hardworking veteran immigration attorney. By retaining her, I am now currently living out my dream if working as a journalist between Canada, New York City, and Doha, Qatar. As a Canadian international, it was difficult knowing which direction to turn once my OPT following my year of graduate studies in the U.S. ended. I almost got married prematurely as another alternative to remaining in America. Thankfully, Tsui guided me down the path to an O-1 visa, answering any and all questions I had about the complicated and lengthy process. Her fees are reasonable, too, especially in comparison to other firms I investigated. Tsui is also flexible, friendly, and accessible. I recommend her to all my international colleagues, journalist or not. Even if you're not pursuing an O-1 visa, Tsui will be able to answer questions and help you aggressively pursue the visa best suited to your own personal situation. Thank you Tsui!

I consulted Kate for legal advice on the visa interview and border entry. Of the many immigration attorneys that I consulted on this issue, Kate was by far the most helpful and professional. Kate was perfect for an issue like this that involved several moving parts and required time-sensitive action, and she has been prompt and deeply empathetic to my concerns. I also appreciate the prudence with which she handled my case. Never would she gloss over worst possible outcomes or leave me with on-the-spot answers. In the rare case that she was unsure about an answer to my question, she took the time to research the case and got back to me, usually within the next day or two. I could not recommend Kate highly enough.

Ekta filed my H1B visa for two terms, followed by my entire green card application. I have worked with several immigration attorneys but Ekta's knowledge about the changing immigration laws, customer focused approach and prompt communication helped alleviate my concerns on immigration matters. I was so comfortable with Ekta and her attention to detail on different timelines during the immigration process that I never had to worry about missing any application deadlines. If you are in the market for an immigration attorney, I strongly encourage you to contact Ekta.

I was referred to Nicole in March 2015. Not only is Nicole extremely knowledgeable in all areas of immigration law, but she is also very efficient, responsive, and truly a pleasure to work with. She promptly handled my case, which was a time-sensitive matter, with utmost care and dedication and ultimately achieved a positive outcome in as little time as possible. Thanks to Nicole’s excellence, my case was resolved in April, less than a month after filing. She proved to be a very skilled attorney and also a wonderful counselor. I wholeheartedly recommend Nicole to anyone in need of the services of a competent lawyer who will ensure that your case is treated with care and priority.

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.
