Do You Have an Immigration Issue?

Immigration is a broad area of law encompassing all issues regarding the legal entry and legal status of people in the United States other than US Citizens. An experienced San Francisco Immigration attorney can help you maneuver through the complex laws so you can learn what your options are.

Different Types of Immigration Cases

Whether you are looking to visit the United States temporarily, work here or establish permanent residency, you need to follow strict immigration laws. An Immigration law firm will have the knowledge of the law you will need to have a successful case.

If you are already a permanent resident you may still need an immigration lawyer should you want to become a United States Citizen. As this is the last phase of Immigration law, you do not want to risk making any mistakes. Addittionally, an Immigration Attorney or law firm can help defend those who are facing deportation or removal from the United States.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
