Why an Immigration Attorney is worth your investment

immigration attorneyOur team at Cambridge Immigration Law is amazing and we truly believe that working with us is worth every penny of your investment. However, we strongly believe that you should work with any good, experienced attorney–not just our amazing team–if you are going to submit any application to or attend any interview with the US government. 

First, an immigration attorney is worth your investment because the immigration attorney will confirm that you are eligible to win your application before you submit it. If you are not eligible to win, the attorney should refuse to help you submit the application. Or, if your case has gray areas in terms of your eligibility, the attorney should tell you the potential problems and potential outcomes, if there is a legal or factual reason your case could be denied.

Second, an immigration attorney is worth your investment because the immigration attorney will prepare your case based on her years of experience practicing immigration law and seeing actual results of cases presented in a variety of ways. An experienced immigration attorney will know what your case needs–and what your case does not need. An experienced immigration attorney probably has seen a case just like yours, and she can use her experience to win your case just as she did for other clients. On the other hand, if your case is different from others, an experienced attorney knows how and where to find the resources necessary to properly evaluate and present your case. 

Third, an immigration attorney–who values client services–will deliver not only the legal result you want but will also support you and your family through the long, confusing immigration process. You should be able to email or meet with your immigration attorney or her legal team frequently before you submit the application. You should be able to email or meet with your attorney or her legal team after your attorney submits your case, because you will have questions along the way. Your immigration attorney should insist on meeting with you before she represents you at any hearing so that you are well prepared. Finally, you should be able to talk to your attorney or her legal team after your interview when you have questions about how it went or what the next steps are. In short, you should work with an attorney who will call you back, email you back, and meet with you. You can’t imagine how many clients I meet who transitioned to my team after working with an attorney–to whom they pay thousands of dollars–who would not return the clients’ phone calls!

Fourth, an immigration attorney will prepare you for future necessary steps in your immigration journey when you need to renew your green card or visa, when you want to apply for US citizenship, and when you want to sponsor other relatives, such as your parents, to immigrate to the US.

Finally, it costs more to not hire a lawyer. Yes, you pay money to hire an immigration attorney. In the end, however, you save time and money. The cost of hiring an attorney pays for itself with the time you save not trying to learn US immigration law and procedure yourself, not worrying if you did things right, not scouring the internet when you have more questions after you file (and you will!), not trying to fix mistakes that you made, and not losing opportunities that come with US immigration benefits. Instead of asking how much it costs to hire an experienced immigration attorney, think about how much it costs not to have an experienced, approachable, and compassionate immigration attorney on your side as you work to achieve your life goals.
