Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire
Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
In the last two years, the cases where I have made a difference is in deportation and family based immigration cases. Several of my clients have been detained my immigration officials and were set to be deported within weeks of retaining our office. I was not only able to help my clients get released from immigration custody, but also defend their deportation cases in immigration and ultimately get them legal immigration status in the United States. Now they all have legal status and working legally in the United States. I have also processed family bases petitions and united families within a short period of time by preparing client's cases thoroughly and following up on the status of these cases until approval was obtained from USCIS.
How did you build a successful practice?
I built my successful immigration law practice through hard work and dedication. However, most importantly I zealously represented my clients, while earning their trust and ultimately getting more clients from referrals to friends and family members.
What should clients look for in a lawyer?
I think the most important attributes a client should look for in a lawyer is not only their experience but how honest, ethical and responsive the attorney is to the needs of their clients. You can have a very experienced attorney, but when the attorney is not ethical or not responsive to their client's need, then this is the wrong attorney for the client.
How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Immigration law is very complex and constantly changing. Is is very important to have an immigration attorney who has up to date knowledge of the immigration laws and also one who has experience working in the local immigration court and knows the local immigration court's procedures.
What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
I provide a free 30 minute consultation and I do a general intake to determine the client's immigration issues and how they can proceed with their case.
What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
If there are immigration related documents in the client's possession, I would like to have copies of these documents in order to effectively advise the client.
What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I think what differentiates me from other attorneys in my community is first, I am one of the few immigration attorney in the Tri Valley Area that has experience doing deportation defense related immigration cases. I am also very passionate about what I do and I am very responsive to client's phone calls, questions and inquires and I involve my clients every step of the way in their immigration related case so they know everything that is going on in their case. Although this is time consuming for me as an attorney, I think this is the key to why my client's are very satisfied with our law firm's service. My client reviews online speak for themselves.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The most rewarded part of my job is getting the end results for the client and having them satisfied with my work and earning their trust through referrals to family and friends.
What are your other interests in addition to law?
I love to go camping, hiking, anything out door with my family.
Are you involved in your community?
I am very much involved in my community. I do a lot of out reach in the Hispanic community in the Tri-Valley Area and I do a lot of free workshops on immigration to students and the community at large. I also work with several organizations that visit federal immigration detention centers to provide Know Your Rights presentation on immigration to immigration detainees who otherwise would have no access to immigration related legal assistance.
