Attorney Heather's consultation fee: $250 for a 45 minute consultation
Why Pay for a Consultation?
We credit your fee. If Attorney Heather is able to take your case and believes you have a good chance at being successful with her, we will credit your consultation fee against any future legal fees or services. So. . . if your case costs $2500, we will take $250 off of that to start.
If your case is complicated or complex, you need an expert who can tell it to you straight. Attorney Heather has an extremely high success rate because her clients are willing to put in the work and she advises carefully with detail on each and every case. Attorney Heather doesn't take every case that comes in the door. We don't want to waste your money or get your hopes up. .

Consultation Cancellation/Postoponement policies:
The fee for a follow up (second) consultation with Attorney Heather is $250 (and are not credited to your account).. Cancellations made within 24 hours of the planned appointment time are non-refundable as Attorney Heather has reserved this time in her schedule specifically for you and has postponed others' time slots to keep your's. Our staff will reschedule your appointment if you need to postpone one time without charge. A second rescheduling will incur an additional fee.
How to prepare for the consultation? If we ask you to provide documentation before the consultation via email or fax so Heather can review it, you need to do so. Do not arrange a consultation if you are trying to file the case on your own, without an attorney. Heather will not tell you how to file your case, what documents or forms to use, or otherwise instruct you on doing it yourself. This would be aiding you in the unlawful practice of law, which is unethical for an Attorney and illegal.
Make the most out of your consultation. Being prepared for the consultation (sending us any immigration documents you have via email, dropbox, mail) and criminal transcripts will help Heather make a more specific recommendation and tailor your options. Filling out our consultation form will help make the most out of your consultation. Fill out our brief consultation form and email your request to u
I live outside of California. Can Heather Still Represent Me?
Yes. A majority of our clients are outside of our area and outside of California. Immigration law is based on federal law, not state law. As a result, we can and do represent clients in immigration matters across the U.S. Heather often flys to CIS green card interviews out of state and represents clients in immigration court proceedings outside of California.
It is very easy to work with us, whether it's easily getting us documents for Heather's review or editing/drafting documents together. Heather and our staff is very accessible via email and we utilize dropbox, skype, fed ex, faxes, the good old fashion phone, and other technology services to make it easy for our clients to work with us from anywhere on the planet.

Why Should I Hire a Competent Immigration Lawyer?
An attorney can recommend the best ways for you to obtain legal status and utilize the system to your advantage because she has the experience to do so;
- An attorney can complete and submit your applications properly so you don't waste money on having to re-file forms for filing the wrong ones, or delay receiving vital authorization to work or worse, fall out of lawful immigration status because you filed the wrong forms or not by the right time;
- An attorney can help you stay current on the new laws that affect you, will act as your guide and interpreter through the ever-changing and complicated field of immigration law and the legal language. Generalized information is not a substitute for a detailed, fully informed analysis of your situation;
- An attorney is authorized to speak for you in discussions with the CIS (INS) or represent you in court.
When meeting with an attorney from our office, we could alert you to potential unlawful presence or other problems you could encounter in trying to get your green card or trying to re-enter the U.S. if you should leave, information you may not understand or even know of on your own.
WATCH OUT FOR NOTARIES, DOCUMENT PREPARERS, AND CONSULTANTS!
Beware of unlicensed operators who promise immigration benefits or assistance for less than what an attorney would charge you. These individuals commonly refer to themselves as "immigration consultants" and advertise in local ethnic newspapers and yellow pages. They are not accountable to anyone, have no ethical standards they must comply with, are not licensed, and worst of all, they are known for taking people's money and doing nothing. Some may even lie to the government in your name for a quick, simple solution that in the end may result in your deportation or permanent exclusion from the U.S.
Also, watch out for notaries ("notarios"), service bureaus, travel agents, or others who promise quick, easy solutions to immigration problems. Beware of lawyers from other countries who are not licensed to practice in the U.S. and do not know U.S. laws, people who say they "know someone" who has an "inside track" or anyone who wants money to influence or bribe a CIS (INS) official.
