Immigration is a complicated and ever-changing field of law. There is little room for error. Strategic mistakes made early in your case could have serious consequences to your future in the
. If you attempt to file on your own, hire an incompetent lawyer or an unqualified consultant - you do so at your own risk.
There is a two-step process to become a client of Maged Rost:
- The Initial Consultation; and
- Legal Representation.
The Initial Consultation
It is highly recommended that you meet with one of our attorneys for an initial consultation if you have issues which may require legal help. The initial consultation gives us an opportunity to review your situation with attention to determine the available courses of action and to provide you with an honest assessment of the likelihood of success of your case before you retain our firm.
We will request certain documents and information prior to the consultation. We ask that you compile and bring with you all available documentation regarding your case.
A first time immigration consultation with an attorney from our office is $200.00.
No attorney-client relationship is formed by virtue of an initial consultation. Such a relationship is formed only upon a client retaining this firm to handle a particular matter after signing a Letter of Engagement.
Maged Rost accepts legal fee payments by personal check, money order or major credit card. For telephone consultations, payment may be made by credit card at the time of scheduling or, if paying by check or money order, received by Maged Rost prior to the time of the consultation. In some instances, the initial consultation fee will be credited toward the legal fee if Maged Rost is retained.
If you would like to arrange an initial consultation with one of Maged Rost's attorneys, either in person or on the phone, please contact us.
Maged Rost offers interest-free credit card payment plans for legal fees where payments are divided into three installments each one month apart. USCIS Filing Fees are often substantial and should be taken into account when budgeting for your immigration matter.
Should you choose to retain Maged Rost to represent you for your immigration matter, both you and a representative of the firm will sign a Letter of Engagement clearly outlining the scope of representation and fees payable.
The Flat Fee Advantage
Typically, matters are handled on a flat-fee basis, so there are no surprises or hourly charges. At Maged Rost, our immigration attorneys want you to feel free to call or e-mail with a question without fear of how much more it will cost you because "the meter is running". Flat fees encourage our attorneys and staff to efficiently handle your case in a quality manner so that it is promptly filed with the appropriate agency. There is no incentive for anyone to drag your case along.
At Maged Rost, we leverage technology to allow us to handle the volume of cases handled by much larger firms and to obtain the maximum benefits for our clients at a significant cost savings over big-name, multi-disciplinary firms that bill hourly. In fact, clients are frequently referred to us by partners at large firms that do not handle immigration matters.
Once you retain our firm, an immigration lawyer, not a paralegal, will help you develop a course of action to achieve your immigration goals under the existing laws. You will be kept informed of every document that is filed on your behalf and will have access to our Online Case Management System that will allow you to track the status of your case within the firm at anytime as well as to modify or add information to your file in our database.
Our Boston immigration attorneys will work tirelessly to provide you with the service you expect in a prompt, highly ethical and quality-controlled manner. Our attorneys have all been through the U.S. immigration process to become
Citizens so we can relate to your experience first-hand. At Maged Rost we are sensitive to how much your case means to you and we will fight hard to get you the immigration benefits to which you are entitled under the law.
