Dallas / Fort Worth, Texas Immigrations Lawyers...BEWARE

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Some lessons have to be trial be fire.

love to share my experience.. concerning expectations when hiring Immigrations lawyers.

some immigrations lawyers are a lot similar to purchasing an airplane ticket from Spirit Airlines, with no option to upgrade after sale

Happy to answer any questions and share the advise I gained

Lawyers are from Dallas / Fort Worth area..

No buyers' remorse...

proper alignment of the customers expectations to the services agreed upon on behalf of the law firm is something l can share with certainty

well, if you'd like to describe the errors done with your paperwork, great, but

remember -

VJ is a DIY Immigration web portal, focusing on immigration to the USA,

and mostly,

either we abhor lawyers or have learned how to file the paperwork ourselves (from reading the guides and the wiki, logged in from a PC)

Happy to read about lawyer's failures, each and every time - whatcha got ?

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Whoa Nelly ! Want NVC Info? see http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/NVC_Process

Congratulations on your approval ! We All Applaud your accomplishment with Most Wonderful Kissies !

VJ has proven to be an invaluable resource,

In short, the lawyer quit and dropped my case, never told me

turns out its more lucrative to practice title law in TX

She failed to inform me, eventually the firm's head lawyer officially apologized on the ex-lawyers behalf, ONE MONTH later!!!

lawyer allegedly claims that NVC packet was submitted..... NOTHING, NVC = never got it

I decided to prepare and submit a second NVC packet... and I have received confirmation of receipt from the "60 days" NVC courtesy letters

and there are the details..
