Reasonable Fees

Firm policy is to strive to keep our fees low and competitive with similar firms offering comparable immigration law services.  Our firm breaks the immigration process down into small component steps for which we charge flat fees.  This allows us to charge less to begin work on a client's case, and it means clients have smaller payments to make which are easier to fit into their budget.  Normally payment is expected up front before beginning work on a case.  However, if necessary, payment plans can be worked out upon request.  Fees and payment plans are determined upon an individual basis after initial case consultation and after review of the potential client's responses to the firm questionnaire.  Firm policy is to offer two discounts.  The first is 25% off to repeat clients who hire us for later steps in the immigration process.  This discount reflects that less work will need to be done on a repeat client, because much of the information necessary for a case will already be in our files.  The second discount is 10% off for all clients who are active duty members of the military.

The law firm keeps our fees low by conducting communication with clients as much as possible by email, telephone, and regular mail.  We also expect our clients to be actively involved in their own cases, handling those matters which they are capable of doing themselves, such as collecting birth certificates, marriage certificates, and passports.  Our fees do not cover the cost of an attorney or paralegal becoming directly involved in such matters.
