Consultation with Immigration Lawyer
Consultation fees are common in the practice of
immigration law because the level of knowledge of immigration law required to
accurately assess the options available to a prospective client, coupled with
the amount of time required to obtain this information, deserve some fee for
this effort. The immigration consultation fee is non-refundable. If the LL.M.
Law Group can help you, the consultation fee will be credited toward the entire
legal fee. A receipt for payment will be provided to you after the
Check or money order payable to “LL.M. Law Group”
Types of Consultation:
- In person consultation at office of
LL.M. Law Group
- E-mail consultation
Purpose of Immigration Consultation:
The immigration consultation allows for the U.S. company, U.S. citizen,
immigrant or non-immigrant to decide whether the legal services provided by
the LL.M. Law Group will be of use to them and whether the proposed terms
and fees are satisfactory. At the immigration consultation, an attorney
from the LL.M. Law Group will gather information to do the following:
- Determine the goals of the client;
- Identify immigration options that
correspond to the client’s goals;
- Establish the attorney-client
relationship and the scope of the representation;
- Determine government filing fees and
- Set a short- and long-term agenda for
the immigration case.
Scope of Representation for Immigration Consultation:
A. CONFIDENTIALITY: All information obtained during the
immigration consultation will remain confidential. Please note that
attorney-client communication is protected by the confidentiality rule
except if the client informs the LL.M. Law Group that he plans on committing
a future crime.
B. MUTUAL TRUST:
In order to properly represent our clients, it is necessary to have complete
honesty. If the LL.M. Law Group suspects that a client is not telling the
truth or is seeking to procure an immigration benefit by fraud (e.g.,
marrying a U.S. citizen for a green card), then it reserves the right to
withdraw its representation.
AGREEMENT: The LL.M. Law Group will represent a client only after
signing a retainer agreement upon completion of an immigration consultation.
