When seeking an experienced immigration attorney, it’s wise to ask questions before you agree to an attorney-client relationship. By asking the right questions, you can determine whether your attorney has the right experience and skills to address your specific needs. You can also start to build a strong professional relationship with your attorney by establishing communication early.
Questions you may wish to ask your experienced Los Angeles immigration attorney include:
- What experience do you have? This question can include items like how long the attorney has practiced immigration law, the types of cases the attorney has handled, and the experience the attorney has in dealing with government offices and courts.
- How will you help me? Filling out forms and writing letters is only one step in the immigration process. Your attorney should be familiar with the process as a whole and able to describe concrete steps he or she will take to ensure your application is completed and filed on time, as well as other ways to improve your chances of success.
- How can I help you? Working with your attorney gives you the best chance of obtaining the visa or other paperwork you need. Ask your attorney what information they need from you and deliver it to them promptly. Keep copies of all your paperwork in a safe place and bring it with you to each meeting with your immigration lawyer.
