How to find a great Immigration Lawyer in NYC

Tip 1: Call their office. You can learn a lot just by speaking to the receptionist at any immigration law firm. Are they friendly?

Tip 2: Ask around. You may have friends, family or co-workers who have recently used the services of an immigration representative. How were their experiences? Would they recommend the immigration representative they dealt with?

Tip 3: Google them! Anyone can post positive reviews on their own website, but review sites like Google Places and Yelp host both positive and negative reviews. If there are negative reviews, know that sometimes businesses can’t make everyone happy. But the most important thing is whether there are follow-up comments by the lawyer or law firm – did they make it right>

Tip 4: Follow their blog. Most businesses blog nowadays, and immigration lawyers aren’t really that different. Their blog should be useful and kept up-to-date to show you that they are in the know when it comes to the latest visa updates. They may even post thank you letters from happy clients on their blog as well.

Tip 5: Check the immigration lawyer’s website to see what kind of information they make available. Do they provide lots of great information that is genuinely helpful? If they are giving away useful information for free, imagine what benefits you could receive when you become their client.
