FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to hire an immigration attorney for my case?
Although hiring an immigration attorney is not mandatory, immigration law is one of the most complex areas of law in the United States. With the immigration and political environments becoming stricter, many opportunities for resolving immigration cases have been eliminated if initially mishandled. As such, it is more critical than ever to secure the professional guidance of an attorney to optimize your immigration process.
What should I consider when hiring an immigration attorney?
First, make sure the person is actually a licensed attorney. You may check if a person is a licensed attorney in the state of Florida by visiting the Florida Bar website (https://www.floridabar.org/). Since immigration law is extremely complex, make sure the attorney is experienced in practicing predominantly – if not exclusively – in this area of law. Use Avvo and other similar review websites to confirm the attorney’s reviews online and read testimonials from previous clients.
What is the difference between a notario, a paralegal, and an attorney?
A notario is not a licensed professional in the United States. It is merely a person who paid a fee to be able to notarize your signature. It is illegal for a notario to assist you in anyway in your case as this constitutes the unlawful practice of law. A paralegal may or may not have obtained a degree. In either case, he/she must be supervised by a licensed attorney at all times. An attorney is a licensed professional regulated by a state bar who may represent you in any type of legal matter.
Is it better to hire a large firm over a small one?
A large firm might provide a larger staff to help manage your case. This may result in an impersonal and mechanical experience. A smaller firm may not have the same number of personnel to assist with your case. This may, however, create a more personalized and tailored experience. At the end of the day, it is your relationship and connection with the attorney and his/her staff that matters.
Why do I have to pay for an initial consultation?
An attorney that charges you for their time takes his/her time seriously. When seeking to hire an attorney, this trait is critical as it will translate to your case being managed with the utmost seriousness.
