Q. Do I need to come into your office and meet you in person to retain you, or to receive legal services?

We will typically speak with you on the phone briefly to understand your circumstances and determine if this is something we can properly assist with.  Some clients need a discrete piece of advice for which a consultation meeting is necessary, but no further action thereafter may be needed.  Other clients may have an issue that we are unable to assist with (for example, their criminal waiver application has been pending for several months at the CBP Admissibility Review Office and they are seeking our help in speeding up the review process) and for yet other clients, we can determine quite quickly that this is a matter we can assist with.

Q. What are your business hours?

Our business hours are 9 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. However, please feel free to call or email us after hours. We are committed to returning our client’s and potential client’s calls and emails within 24 hours or less. Please contact us through our Contact page.

Q. Do you charge for consultations?

Yes, our lawyers have spent years honing their qualifications and experience in this area of law and in order to properly advise you of the legal options available to you we will charge a fee for a consultation meeting.  Should a meeting be necessary we will advise you on the consultation charges prior to booking a consultation appointment.

Q. What will the legal fees cost me?

We are committed to providing you with the most cost-effective legal representation. We typically arrange flat fee agreements and will provide a fee quotation once we have assessed your circumstances and understand the level of expertise and time commitment involved in carrying out our services. Our fees reflect our strong reputation, skill level, expertise and years of experience.  If you are seeking the lowest fees we are not the best fit for you. If you are seeking the best representation for your application then you will want to consider our firm.

Q. What do I receive in exchange for your attorney’s fee?

In exchange for our attorney’s fee your case will receive the professional attention of NNU Immigration attorneys, all of whom are experienced in handling your application through all stages of your application: from the assessment & information-gathering stage to the analysis and strategy- formation stage; to the preparation and advisory stage to the final decision on your application.  Our mission is to provide our clients with the most efficient legal services possible, collaborating with our clients each step of the way.  You can expect to have a dedicated lawyer to guide you through the application process, applying our knowledge of immigration law and local guidelines, our unique legal strengths, our ability to effectively advocate difficult and complex cases, and our desire to work cooperatively and ethically to attain favorable results for our clients.

Q. What is expected of me as a client of your firm?

We want you to trust that we are here to help you navigate the process of obtaining a visa as smoothly as possible. We expect our clients to be honest and responsive so that we can best prepare your application within the optimal timeframe.  The preparation process is collaborative, and we are unable to adequately present your application without full knowledge of your circumstances and your full cooperation.

Q. How will I be kept informed of my case?

We will keep you informed as to any important milestones in your case so that you are always up-to-date. We are here to support you and take some stress away by keeping track of all of the detailed proceedings on a day-to-day basis.

Q. How long will this process take?

The length of time that this process can take varies greatly from case to case due to the very unique facts of each case.
