Consultations & Fees
San Jose Immigration Lawyer
Our firm is looking forward to helping you with your immigration problem.
The first step is to meet with a highly-trained immigration attorney on
our staff in a consultation meeting. From there, our firm can get a complete
picture of your case to develop a cost-effective solution that get you
the fastest results possible.
Our legal service fee for an initial attorney consultation is $180.00.
For criminal immigration matters, our initial attorney consultation fee
is $375.00. Consultations normally take 30 minutes to 45 minutes.You should bring all
relevant immigration and/or criminal and family court materials to your
consultation meeting. To reserve your consultation appointment, the consultation
fee is payable at the time of scheduling.
Our office may on occasion be willing to conduct a phone or Skype consultation
for individuals who are living out of the area. Our fee for a phone or
Skype consultation is $375.00.
Consultations Beyond Your Initial Evaluation
Additional consultations not for the purpose of retaining our firm but
for obtaining legal advice is a service we are happy to provide. Legal
advice consultations or consultations on considering immigration-safe
criminal pleas are billed at the rate of $600.00 per hour, billed in advance
for a full hour.

We endeavor to make consultations as informative as possible; however,
certain questions are impossible to fairly and adequately answer unless
our office has been retained as counsel on the case. For example, queries
about the best way to answer questions on an immigration form, or advice
on responding to specific questions by an immigration officer or immigration
judge, cannot be handled within the scope of the consultation. Such issues
require a more in depth understanding of your case than can be done during
a half-hour consultation. It is only by preparing your immigration case
that our office can devise an honest and helpful approach to your application
form, interview, or deportation hearing.
Our Legal Fees
Regarding legal fees, we normally charge a flat rate for immigration legal
services, with a deposit up front and the remainder paid in monthly installments.
Cases before the state superior and federal courts however are billed
at an hourly rate with an evergreen retainer deposit held in a client
trust account. Our legal fees do not include government filing fees or
other costs such as translations, expert witness opinions, or other reimbursable
expenses (e.g., out-of-area travel, postage and delivery fees etc.). Our
firm accepts as payment personal checks and money orders, cash, Visa,
MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
"How much are your legal fees? Can you quote me your fees over the
You are unique, and so is your immigration case. Before we can quote a fee, our office must get a clear picture of your
legal issues. We look at your immigration problem in its entirety, not
just as set of forms that need to be to filled out. Fees can only be quoted
after our office has met with you for a consultation, once we have all
had a chance to figure out the nature of your legal problem, and the best
solution to achieve your immigration goals. You deserve an individualized
assessment of your case by a skilled and experienced immigration lawyer,
who will first figure out your case before telling you how much it's
going to cost.
For that reason, we cannot quote fees over the phone.
Not all law firms are created equal, and for that reason, not all law firms
charge the same. Keep this in mind when picking an immigration lawyer
based on price.
