As you wouldn’t even consider fixing your tax problem without a CPA or a tax attorney, it would be equally absurd to navigate the complicated maze of immigration directives by yourself. The stakes are even higher in immigration cases: if you make a mistake on your tax return, you are looking at a fine, but if you make a mistake on your immigration application, you are looking at a potential deportation. Immigration law is comprised of an ever-changing set of statutes, regulations, case law, and agency memorandums. It is an immigration lawyer’s responsibility to keep apprised of any new developments and policy changes. With the latest political upheavals in immigration enforcement, it is more important than ever to trust your immigration case into the hands of an experienced immigration lawyer.
