Clients often ask me about the "boutique" nature of my practice which I have limited to immigration matters only. There are several reasons why my practice is limited to only immigration matters.
First, all areas of law have become complicated. Government regulations, constantly revised administrative guidelines and rules, and many court cases impact any area of law practice. I think it is difficult to be a "general practice" lawyer in 21st century America. I am not comfortable "shooting from the hip" in my legal practice. Rather than be a "jack of all trades" I'd rather be a "master" in one area.
Immigration law is already the most complex area of law; it is more complicated than tax law. Immigration matters involve several Executive Departments: Department of Homeland Security; Department of State; Department of Justice; and, Department of Labor. These Executive Departments often have several agencies involved in immigration matters. Each Department and agency has its own set of regulations and administrative review processes. The federal courts also make rulings affecting immigration laws. There are thousands of adjudicators and federal officers that make decisions in immigration matters. A good immigration lawyer has to spend time keeping up with constant changes in immigration law.
I understand the importance of family. I, also, understand that your immigration matters are very important to you and your family. That's why my clients work directly with me, their attorney, and not through a secretary or paralegal. My practice is different because you and your immigration experience matter. When my clients call or email me they communicate directly with me.
