How To Judge The Services Of An Immigration Law Firm?
Posted: Oct 30, 2016
Immigration related legal advice is always very critical. The immigration law firm which you have hired should be able to take you through the long list of documentation that need to be done from time to time, help you in meeting with the different timelines issued by the authority at different intervals and should be able to ensure that you face the least chances of rejection. Handling the chances of rejection is the most important thing because once rejected by the authority you chances of reapplying within a short period of time are the least. Once you face multiple rejections you chances of getting the visa also reduces.
When you are talking about New York City, it is one of the most place preferred place for lot of immigrant population who are coming to America for fulfilling their American dreams. From Investment banking professionals to IT geeks and professionals from other industries are flying down to this city every year.
This was also the case when I also got an offer from an American corporation which was placed in New York. Though the American Economy is always happy to call upon smart immigrants but the legal procedure is always very tiring. In the initial days of my visit I travelled the country with my travel visa but the reason of doing that was to find competent immigration law firm in New York who can help me get the right employment visa when I am finally there to stay and work in the city. As lot of my friends were already there so I got a bounty of advices about what to do, whom to look for and how to look for. The solution came to me when I meet my real friend like Family immigration lawyer. Even Internet offered a long of opportunities where there are a lot of websites where immigration law firms of New York are listed with reviews. Though this information was enough to do the initial search but all these information can’t ever give you an idea of the professional capability of the firm.
While doing my search for the best immigration law firm in the city I did followed some rules which helped me to judge the professionalism level of the firm. As like any other legal service you always needed a personal care from the lawyer which can help you judge whether the firm or the lawyer is suited for you or not. Other than the above factors reviews from the firm’s existing client base is always an eye opener to understand the nuances of the services in detail. So when are trying to judge the services you should specifically look at few things based upon the following factors
a) Response and communication
i) Did the firm or the attorney respond to your queries promptly?
