I couldn't recommend this lawyer nor his paralegals. In 2007-2008, we were going through the I-601 waiver process in Cd. Juarez. In the process, the spouse/relative has to prove extreme hardship if the immigrant is not granted permanent residence.
They are polite and I paid them to help guide me through the waiver process. I kept in contact for updates on my case.
They dragged out a process for a whole year that usually can be done in four months if your case is easy and ours was. At the very last moment I was waiting for their professional packet to arrive before my husband's scheduled appointment at the Consulate. When I received their waiver packet. All it had in it was a two summary they wrote of the essay they told me to write so they could help me develop ideas of hardship from it. I was dumbfounded at the grammar, and misspellings in their "essay" including my husband's last name! I wouldn't have eve turned that in to my old English high school teacher!
They proclaimed that he was living with me when he was in Mexico! According to the rules, if that fact had been so, the Consulate could have banned him for life for double enter without inspection entry! Thank goodness, I had bus tickets, and my son's doctor's notes to prove my husband was living in his town in Mexico during the process. The company even filled out the I-601 form incorrectly. I went online and found a wonderful of ladies that helped guide me and I prepared my own 12+ page essay with complying 100 pieces of evidence.
After the interviewing immigration official viewed my packet and the lawyers packet which by the way, I wrote a long note in detail how this and this was incorrect and untrue. The immigration officer had my husband restate his oath of promise on choosing my packet and I got a big compliment on it from the officer. The officer told my husband as he threw away the lawyer's packet, "There goes money into the trash." And officer approved my packet for my husband to get his residence. I didn't have the heart to tell the paralegal what really happened and only stated that I had included my part in the packet and he did get his residence. BUT he got his residence because of me, not them. It does matter if you need a lawyer if the case is extremely hard but a paralegal's job is to research, compel and put together a strong case of hardship. If I known and went with my gut, I would have had my husband back with me months prior.
