You are browsing our site, which means you are likely considering filing an immigration petition or application for yourself, a family member, or an employee.  Perhaps you are exploring the options for having your immigration matter handled by an attorney, or maybe you have been trying to navigate the immigration process for many years on your own and you are clinging to the hope that there is someone out there who can help.  The prospect of immigrating to America offers many exciting opportunities for good, hard-working people from all over the world.  It can also present many challenges and obstacles, and leave you confused and bewildered.

Finding an attorney to support you through your immigration process can be daunting.  Perhaps you have contacted other lawyers and found that their fees are too high, contact impersonal, or communication lacking – all too often leaving you out of money, and your questions still unanswered.

You are far from alone in your journey.  By reading this, you are already taking the first step – and, like the majority of people researching immigration attorneys, you probably have many questions.  You need the freedom to discuss the possibilities open to you, and find the best route to take in achieving your objectives.

We would like to welcome you to LOJO.  It is our goal to provide you with clarity, and confidence that we know the law and will use it to give you the best chance of a positive outcome.

We will take the time to listen to you, and discuss with you the best course of action.  We will efficiently prepare and file your petition, and we offer expedited service for fast filing for those situations where time is of the essence.  We can help you respond to government inquiries or requests for additional information about your case, and we can represent and accompany you at interviews and hearings about your immigration case.  We will work around the clock when necessary to ensure all deadlines are met.  And, just as importantly, we will help you have peace of mind about your immigration matter by being there to answer questions and support you throughout the process.

 

LOJO vs Other Lawyers

As you know, there is no shortage of lawyers.  Most are knowledgeable and professional, and some are not.  Since immigration law is very complicated and constantly changing, it is best to work with a lawyer who handles immigration matters exclusively.  At LOJO our focus is immigration only, so that we maintain our high level of competence in U.S. immigration and nationality law.  This equips us to provide the highest quality of legal service to our clients.  Since U.S. immigration law is federal, it is not necessary to find an attorney in your own state for your immigration matter.  At LOJO, our clients are located across the 50 states and even outside of the U.S.  This means you can retain an attorney from pretty much anywhere – making it a little overwhelming when deciding who to trust!

The advantage of LOJO over other attorneys is fourfold:

  • We strive to keep our rates affordable.  LOJO offers flat fees for most case types (so that you can know at the outset how much the case is going to cost you).  You can plan and budget for the cost of your immigration case with LOJO’s fair rates.
  • We will always treat you as a person, not as a file.  Speaking with an attorney can be a nerve wracking experience, and sometimes frustrating.  At LOJO the last thing we want is for your experience to be “clinical” or impersonal.  On the contrary, it is our hope that you will come away feeling you have formed a relationship.  When we file your case and see it through to a successful outcome, we are thrilled for you!
  • We have a small but experienced team of legal staff, meaning that you will get to know the people you communicate with by phone or through email.  Your case is our focus until it reaches its conclusion.
  • LOJO is located in the heart of the Baltimore-Washington corridor, meaning that LOJO is near the headquarters of the federal government agencies and foreign embassies that impact the flow of immigrants to the United States.

 

LOJO vs Self-Filing

Can you file by yourself?  Of course.  The forms are available online, and the fee structure and filing addresses are readily available.  But the questions you need to ask yourself are:

  • Do you have sufficient knowledge of the system?
  • Are you clear on the process and the requirements?
  • Are you confident that everything in your application is in order, with the correct and appropriate supporting documentation?
  • Do you know what happens next, after you send in the application or petition to USCIS?
  • Can you respond timely and appropriately to issues raised by USCIS with your application?
  • Can you handle the stress/anxiety of going through this process by yourself?

If you answered “no” to any of the questions above, then you need an advocate.  LOJO can be your knowledgeable and caring advocate to give you clarity and confidence in your immigration process.

Some people do not seek out an attorney until the Immigration Service sends them a request for additional evidence, a denial, or some other problem occurs.  At this point a skilled attorney can often help, but it is far better (and less costly) to go into the process fully armed with the confidence that your application is correct, and to be prepared for potential issues down the line.

Choose LOJO for professional and prompt service, and knowledgeable advice from an experienced immigration lawyer who cares.
