Pricing and Procedure

Immigration Law Pricing & Procedure Image

At Shepard Immigration Law, I want to be clear and transparent about my legal fees. I offer a flat fee schedule accordingly to case type. I believe my fees are comparable to others in the area. A flat fee gives you predictability and allows you to make payments as your case progresses. With my fee schedule, you know that I am quoting you the same fees as the person before and after you and that you won’t miss out on a discount because you showed up on a Tuesday instead of a Saturday. I also offer what I call “add-ons” that are services other firms either don’t want to do or don’t have time to do such as collecting your criminal records. But on the other hand, I don’t want to charge you hidden fees or surprise fees that show up towards the end of your process. I am doing my best to keep my overhead down, so you don’t have to pay for it.

You will find different fees for legal services depending on the type of law firm or attorney with whom you are consulting. Some firms charge lower fees because they have many similar cases, but they sacrifice customer service in the process. Other firms are more luxurious and you pay more for reputation and esteem. With my services, I want you to feel like you are hiring a personal tailor rather than shopping at a fancy boutique or discount store. I am on your team.

I also offer payment plans with incentives to work with your financial needs.
