How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

We formed the Gokey Immigration Law Office in 2011 to fill the region's need for a law firm focusing exclusively on immigration law for businesses and families.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

Our firm is committed to excellent customer service. We are a "hands on" law firm and strive to give all of our clients immediate access to our attorneys and staff. Our goal is to provide our clients not only with top quality legal representation, but also with excellent customer service. In our effort to remain "hands on", we work extensively through email, Internet, Skype, telephone and courier services. For business clients, we routinely provide on-site legal representation and seminars.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Our fees are also designed to reduce stress and uncertainty in the immigration process. In many cases we can offer a flat fee after an initial consultation, so clients know exactly what the process will cost. Our clients authorize the legal services they require and are only charged for what is requested.
