Legally speaking, no one is required to work with an immigration lawyer in order to become a United States citizen. However, it can certainly make life a lot easier as you embark on one of the largest moves in your life. What traits should you seek out as you search for the ideal immigration lawyer to represent you along this journey?
Word of Mouth
Any immigration lawyer can create a convincing website and offer lofty promises to you. However, you can more accurately gauge an attorney’s effectiveness by observing others’ experiences with them. Whether you browse online testimonials or elicit the support of trusted friends and family with a referral, you should have a good sense that your future hire has experience delivering the outcomes you need.

Request a Consultation
