If our expertise and availability match your needs, we usually respond within one business day.
Our business hours are Monday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm Central Time (CT), excluding U.S. federal holidays.
Because we run a virtual office platform, all in-person meetings are by appointment and for consultations and clients only.
If you have to meet your lawyer in person to feel like you’re getting real value, we’re probably not a good fit. Communication with clients and others who need our help is mostly by telephone, Skype video, and email.
Case Evaluation (for no fee)
In a complimentary case evaluation by telephone or email, we provide general information and determine whether we can help you resolve your problems and challenges.
We take on only certain types of U.S. immigration and visa matters, so check out our U.S. Immigration & Citizenship page before you submit an inquiry. In your inquiry, provide a basic description of your case for us to understand the most relevant facts and issues that need to be addressed by counsel.
Vague requests or requests for help in areas where we do not focus will get slower responses or no response.
Because we receive a high volume of inquiries daily, we occasionally miss ones that are within our areas of expertise. You may follow up with another inquiry if more than two business days have passed and you have not received a response.
