Immigration Consultations

Consultations With An Immigration Lawyer

The immigration lawyers at Murphy Desmond offer initial consultations for a charge that last a minimum duration of one hour.

For in-person appointments, the consultation fee is paid at the conclusion of the consultation. If you cannot travel to our office, you may request a prepaid telephonic consultation.

Consultations scheduled without a signed legal representation agreement do not entail a commitment to take the case, and the clients are not obligated to retain our services. After the consultation, if you wish to retain an immigration lawyer at Murphy Desmond as your attorney of record, we will prepare a legal representation agreement for your consideration.

Preparing for Your Consultation

Prior to your consultation, we will send you general information about our firm, including a description of the consultation process and a detailed list of documents to bring to your consultation. We also send clients detailed questionnaires to complete and bring with them to their consultations. In addition, we recommend that you bring a list of potential topics to the initial consultation in order to make sure that our attorneys address all your questions

During Your Consultation

During your initial consultation, our immigration lawyers will analyze your situation and identify the best strategy for your case based on the information you have provided. We will then discuss legal fees and costs for the case, which are determined according to the anticipated complexity of each case and the investment of time each case will require.

The success and productivity of your initial consultation depends in large part upon your willingness to be honest and forthright, and to trust the attorney with the details of your potential case.

By the time your initial consultation is over, you should have a clear understanding of the potential avenues for the resolution of your case, the steps required for your case, the estimated costs, and your role in ensuring that your case progresses efficiently.
