www.aila.org Immigration is federal, so you can hire any attorney anywhere in the USA. I used a local one for my N-400 and he ###### up a little and delayed my application.  PM if you need one

Thank you Alabamak1. i am going to pm you. what do you mean he f*ucked up a little? Did he have enough experience in the field? good reviews?  

we needed an original printout of the court from a case i had a misdameanor. I asked him 3 times and he assured that a download from the website was enough. Guess not, it delayed my naturalization for 1 month because he didn't do proper diligence. Interview went well, but had to send that paper again to USCIS
