Herbert J. Tan, Esq. - Attorneys At Law
Our Immigration Attorney's Fees

One of the overriding principles upon which our firm is founded, is the strong belief that realistic, affordable attorney fees for clients are not, and certainly should not, be an indication of "low quality" or "low experience", but rather, should be an aspiration for all law firms to strive to achieve.  In other words, "greed" and "inefficiency" should not be synonymous with quality and experience.  In this vein, our firm, through the use of extensive computer technology and through other intelligent business practices, is able to operate at a high standard of economic efficiency, without any compromise of effectiveness for our clients.  In fact, we believe that our efficient business practices enhance our responsiveness to our clients, and our ability to be an effective advocate on their behalf.  Thus, we feel that it is only fair to our clients to "pass this efficiency" along, in the form of affordable rates for our legal services.

Fees In Immigration Matters
In most immigration matters, attorney's fees are assessed on a "flat fee" basis.  By using the flat fee concept, clients know precisely what their total fee bill will be for an issue, and there will be no attorney fee surprises.  Costs associated with an immigration issue, such as USCIS filing fees, translation fees, certification fees, postage expenses, copying fees, etc., are the responsibility of the client, and must usually be paid in advance to the firm.  All reasonably anticipated costs are identified to the client at the time of retention.
Our current attorney fee schedule for common immigration matters is as follows (also note that for unusually complex matters, the attorney fee may be higher):
