Choosing, Hiring, or Firing an Immigration Attorney

The practice of immigration law is unlike most other legal specialties. Your lawyer will not only perform services for you, but become your advocate in dealing with a government bureaucracy that can be difficult and unpredictable. With any luck, the process will (aided by the lawyer's knowledge and organization) go so smoothly that you never notice the bumps in the road. But if major difficulties arise, it becomes especially important to have chosen a lawyer in whom you have absolute trust.
