I am Luisa Osorio and as an administrative and client service assistant at J Kelley Law Group I have noticed that sometimes our clients may face difficulties in expressing clearly what they want in their immigration process and what they expect from their attorney and her staff.
That is why I am sharing with you some “tips” or general information that can help you develop an effective consultation. In this way, clients and attorney will have greater tools to resolve doubts, evaluate paths and begin to build a strong immigration case.
It is very important to be clear about the facts, events, dates, background and all the details of a future immigration case. This will be one of the most effective tools for the initial consultation.
It is very useful to have as much physical evidence, complaints, photographs, immigration documents, medical records, invoices and any additional evidence from the beginning of the process. All of this material will be a great asset to the attorney and the team that takes on the case.
Not all of us have the same habits, but it is advisable and very useful to take notes of each of the doubts that exist before the first consultation, as well as important dates in the specific case, significant events and any information of interest. Everything can become vital in the first conversations. Memory sometimes fails… paper does not.
Honesty and openness with the attorney in the first legal consultation is really important. It is the basis for the J Kelley Law Group team to best advise, plan a case and project scenarios for action.
Being clear about your concerns and having all the documents received from immigration or any other U.S. Government entity will help the attorney to accurately define the legal status of the person you are consulting and the possibilities you have in your future process.
I hope these tips will be helpful when we meet at the offices of J Kelley Law Group. Never forget that we are here to support you in the realization of your family, personal and work projects in the United States.
