How Can the Public Protect Themselves From Bad Immigration Lawyers and Consultants in Boston?

In most cases, immigration lawyers and immigration consultants are here to help you with all of your immigration needs. Unfortunately like in every profession, not all of them are honest. While regulatory bodies and government agencies exist to help ensure the public is protected from shady lawyers and immigration consultants, sometimes a few unscrupulous immigration service providers fall through the cracks.

Luckily, there are a few steps you can take to ensure that the immigration lawyer or consultant that you do end up hiring is truly working for you and will do a great job:

How to protect yourself from bad immigration lawyers and consultants

1. Ask the lawyer how available they are. One of the biggest complaints about immigration consultants is that they do not return phone calls or seem to “disappear” once they are paid. This should never be the case, and your lawyer should return your phone calls or e-mails quickly.

2. Ask the immigration lawyer or consultant for references. A great immigration lawyer or consultant will be happy to provide you with a long list of previous clients that are happy with their services. They may even have testimonials on their website that you could read. If your lawyer does not seem forthcoming with referrals or references – he must not have very many happy clients!

3. Ask about the fees you will be paying. You’re paying for a service, and are entitled to know how much you will be paying and what exact services you will be receiving. There is no reason for anyone to be secretive about their fees!

4. Ask the lawyer whether they think your case will be successful. An immigration representative should be honest with you, and maybe be able to let you know whether or not they think your immigration application has a good chance of being approved. They will use their years of experience and knowledge to come to a conclusion – but they should never ever guarantee success in exchange for a certain amount of money. If they do such a thing – run and find yourself someone else.
