Washington DC Metro Area Immigration Attorney will help you with all your immigration problems at affordable price.
General rules to keep in mind when choosing an attorney and evaluating attorneys fees:
There is no such thing as a “standard fee.” Fee agreements are negotiable between clients and attorneys with some exceptions for when they are limited by law. Fees are based on several factors, including the lawyer’s experience, the type of legal problem, and what other lawyers in the area charge for similar work.
Cheap isn’t necessarily a good thing. Although everyone wants to save money, the cheapest lawyer is not necessarily the best, especially if your problem is complicated or specialized. Look for an attorney who is experienced in the area of law.
Expensive isn’t necessarily best, either. If you have trivial case that any attorney can handle do not go for the image or the name. Use common sense.
