    Is just a consultation fee of 200 dollars reasonable? I don't think it is, unless you are filthy rich, in which case, I'm sure you can buy your way into citizenship.

    Very informative video with regard to the best way to select a quality immigration lawyer. Just like in any other business, reputation is an important factor when selecting your immigration attorney. A multilingual based immigration law firm is also desirable for obvious reasons…nicely done video…thank you

  • Carl Shusterman -

    In response to some of the comments below, allow me to clarify rule #9.  Watch the video again, and you will see that I did not advise you not to select an attorney who speaks your native language.  The attorneys in our office speak Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, Farsi, etc.  However, too many people choose an attorney simply because he/she is from their country and this makes them feel more comfortable.  This, by itself, is no guarantee of quality!
