Comprehensive US Immigration Law Advice
The Law Office of Janice Flynn is a boutique law firm that provides comprehensive US visa and nationality law advice and legal services. Initially, we either speak to or email with potential clients to ascertain the basic facts of the case and determine if the issue is something with which we an provide advice prior to booking a consultation with one of our lawyers. In general, our initial consultation fee for private individual clients is £400 plus VAT for a meeting that lasts about an hour. We meet with all potential clients for a pre-scheduled face-to-face consultation at our office in central London, or via Skype, to allow the lawyer to discuss your situation and provide you with advice on how to proceed and give you an indication of the processing times and total costs involved. In some cases, we may conduct an initial consultation over the phone if the client is unable to meet at our offices.
Please note, having a consultation with one of our lawyers is not a guarantee that you have a case and we may need to advise that, once we have a full understanding of your situation, it is not advisable to proceed with your case. We feel there is value in knowing what your options are, having an understanding of US visa and nationality law and how it applies to your case. Also, if a potential client does not have at least a US job offer, intention to invest in a US business or a US citizen or Permanent Resident immediate relative, we may only be able to provide you with general information. Therefore, it is up to the client to decide if he or she would like to have a consultation with a US visa and nationality lawyer.
Also, as we are regulated by our US state bars, we cannot ethically provide legal advice if we do not have a full understanding of the situation involved. In addition, our state bars require that we keep all client information confidential.
The Initial Consultation
The purpose of a consultation is to allow the lawyer to make a full assessment of the facts of the case, to provide accurate US visa advice and for the lawyer to give an educated opinion as to the likely outcome of the case based on the facts provided. The lawyer will discuss the possible legal strategies and arguments, procedures, timing expectations and costs involved with a case. Often, more than one visa category or solution may be available to a company or individual and it is their individual circumstances and goals that may determine the best way to proceed. We do initially chat with a potential client prior to booking a consultation to ascertain the basic facts of a person’s situation but some cases are very complex and require a meeting with a lawyer to determine whether a person will have a case for a US visa or nationality. Having a consultation with a lawyer is not a guarantee that a person will be successful. There are times, after a consultation, that the lawyer may need to advise a client that it would be best if they did not proceed with their case due to the unlikelihood of success.
After the consultation the client should be able to make an informed decision on whether to proceed with the case and engage our services to represent them. After the consultation, once we have a full understanding of the facts of the case and the client’s requirements, the client will be notified of what our total legal fee will be to assist with the matter.

Please note that the our lawyers cannot guarantee the success of any case and can only give an indication of the likelihood of success as the final decision and outcome is ultimately made by the US government.
