Why Should I Hire an Immigration Lawyer?
Immigration laws are very rigid and are constantly being challenged in the United States. If you are having trouble entering or remaining in the United States, it would be in your best interest to speak an immigration lawyer who is an expert in immigration laws.
It is important to remember that an immigration lawyer cannot lawfully guarantee that your case will succeed. The reason an immigration lawyer cannot assure that your case will succeed is because the discretion is not in your attorney’s hands. It is in the discretion of the immigration judge or officer overseeing your case. However, a qualified Lead Counsel Rated immigration attorney can assure that your immigration matters will be handled in the best possible way. Some of the ways an immigration attorney can assist you include:
