Selecting the right immigration attorney is an important decision for anyone facing immigration challenges. Your choice can significantly impact your case's outcome, so it is essential to make it wisely. This article lists several key factors to consider when making this important decision.
1. Experience Matters
One of the fundamental criteria for choosing an immigration attorney is their experience. Immigration law is intricate, and a seasoned attorney is more likely to have a deep understanding of the legal nuances and complexities involved. Look for an attorney with a proven track record of successful cases, especially those similar to your situation.
Karol Brown, the managing attorney at World One Law Group, has over twenty years of experience in immigration law. She graduated from Yale Law School and has a Master's degree from Harvard University in Public Policy.
Immigration law encompasses various categories, including family-based, employment-based, asylum, deportation, and more. You should find an attorney who specializes in the specific immigration needs relevant to your case. Specialization ensures that your attorney is well-versed in the intricacies of the type of case you need.
World One Law Group only handles immigration, unlike some attorneys who handle immigration as well as other areas of law. We handle family immigration, employment immigration, asylum, DACA, and U visas. We do not handle deportation defense or removal cases.
3. Communication Skills
Effective communication is vital when working with an immigration attorney. You should feel comfortable discussing your concerns and asking questions about your case. Your chosen attorney should be responsive and capable of explaining complex legal matters clearly, making sure you fully understand your options and the steps involved.
World One Law Group strives to provide every client with clear communication about their case. We provide a recorded copy of your consultation so you can watch it as many times as you would like. We also email you for each step of your case to help guide you through the complex immigration process.
4. Reputation and Reviews
Before making a decision, thoroughly research the attorney's reputation. Online reviews and testimonials from previous clients can provide valuable insights into the attorney's performance and client satisfaction. A solid reputation and positive feedback are indicative of a reliable attorney.
World One Law Group has accumulated lots of reviews from satisfied clients. You can read our reviews on Google at World One Law Group Reviews. Karol Brown is rated 10 out of 10 on Avvo, which is a website that rates different attorneys based on a variety of criteria.
5. Credentials and Licenses
Ensure that the attorney you're considering is qualified to practice immigration law. Verify their credentials, licenses, and memberships in relevant bar associations. You should also confirm that the attorney is in good standing within their professional associations such as the American Immigration Lawyers Association (“AILA”).
