Documentation. In order for us to give you the best legal advice,
it is important that we have as much information as possible about
your case. To better facilitate the consultation process, please
provide, if possible, the following documentation:
and expired passports, with I-94 cards;
and expired employment authorization documents;
license and birth certificate;
immigration or criminal documentation, such as
correspondence with a government agency, police records, or
court orders; and
other documentation requested when you schedule an
you have worked with previous immigration or criminal counsel, and
you do not have a complete copy of documents filed on your behalf,
it may become necessary for you to obtain copies of your files.
Lawyers are required to keep client files and produce copies upon
client request, although they may charge a fee to do so.
Interpretation. If you require language assistance, you may
bring your own interpreter who is fluent in your language and English
and is over the age of 16. A Spanish/English interpreter is available
through our firm for $30.
Consultation Fee for New Clients is $100. For particularly
complex consultations or if we need to review substantial amounts
of documents that cause the consultation to run more than an hour-and-a-half,
we will charge an additional $100. If we are asked to conduct a
consultation at the Prince William County Adult Detention Center,
the fee is $200 and the Spanish/English interpreter fee is $60.
Consultation for Lawyers. We are pleased to assist other
lawyers with questions. We do not charge for this service as a professional
courtesy unless the question is more complex or involves research.

Card for the consultation and follow-on case work. Payment plans
