Immigration Consultation Terms
Please read all the terms for the first lawyer immigration consultation before booking an appointment. If you have any questions about these terms, please let us know before the meeting. By participating in a consultation, you acknowledge, understand, and accept these terms.
Immigration Lawyer Consultation Fee:
$100. Our consultation fee is now $100 for up to 45 minutes with our immigration attorney. The attorney consultation fee goes towards our flat-rate immigration attorney fees if hired at the first meeting. The consultation fee is due before the consultation. We accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards.
Scope of Consultation:
The consultation is limited to discussing your best immigration options. It is not intended to assist you in engaging in self-help.
You have no duty to hire us and; we are under no obligation to represent you.
No Attorney-Client Relationship:
A consultation does not create an attorney-client relationship. You have not retained our legal services merely by participating in a consultation. You become a client only when we accept your case, a representative of our firm has signed an agreement with you, and you have paid the agreed retainer.
The consultation is strictly confidential:
To gather the relevant information to evaluate your case, the attorney may ask you questions, some of which may be of a sensitive nature. The quality of the advice you receive will be directly affected by the truthfulness with which you answer the attorney’s questions. Please note that in responding to these questions the attorney-client privilege is in effect (even if you do not become a client), meaning anything you tell the attorney will not, and cannot be repeated to anyone without your permission.
After the Consultation:
If you have not yet signed a legal services agreement with us, and you have more legal questions after the first consultation, you should book a new consultation. We cannot answer legal questions over the telephone or e-mail unless it is during a consultation or you have a case with us.
Limited Practice Areas:
Our practice areas are on our web site www.immigrationlasvegas.com. TO SERVE OUR CLIENTS BETTER WE HAVE A SPECIALTY FOCUS AND DO NOT HANDLE ALL IMMIGRATION MATTERS. Please check our practice areas page if you are not sure whether your question is in any of our practice areas.
