New Consultation Overview

Thank you for initiating a consultation with our law office.  We are looking forward to meeting you and assisting you with your immigration matter.  Here you will find some helpful information to make sure you are able to get the most benefit from your consultation.

 

Where are we located?

4049 Pennsylvania Ave., Suite 201, Kansas City Missouri 64111

We are in the heart of Westport, which is a wonderful place to work, but can present some challenges to visitors.  The most obvious is parking.  Please plan to arrive at least 15-20 minutes early to your scheduled appointment time to ensure you are able to find parking.  Parking is available on the street as well in the small lot directly connected to our building.  There is also a parking garage with visitor parking just across the street from our building, where you can park free of charge.  Please do not park in any spot that is reserved for another business or you will likely be ticketed.

 

 

Metered parking available in Orange lot by ParkMobile.  You can download the App and pay from your phone. 

 

What should you bring with you?

If you are not fluent in English, please bring a competent translator to assist you.  Our office cannot provide translation services in any language.  We apologize for any inconvenience. If you arrive for your consultation without a translator, we will have to reschedule your appointment.

Please also bring any and all relevant documentation that may assist us in reviewing your case or determining your eligibility for an immigration benefit, such as:

 

  • Birth/Death/Marriage/Adoption certificates
  • Prior immigration application documents (receipts, approvals, denials, etc.)
  • Immigration benefit documents, such as work cards, green cards, passports, visas, naturalization certificates, etc.
  • Immigration court hearing notices and other correspondence
  • Criminal records, including charging documents and final dispositions

 

What to expect during the consultation

Most consultations take approximately 1 hour.  We are often booked for appointments back to back, so please do not be late for your appointment.  If you are more than 15 minutes late, we will have to reschedule your appointment to ensure we have adequate time to meet with our other scheduled clients.  

Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to allow time to complete our intake questionnaire and process your consultation payment, if you have not pre-paid.  While children are welcome at the office and we have toys and other items available to entertain them, you will have a better consultation experience if you are able to leave them with a caregiver so that you can focus exclusively on your case during our meeting. 

 

What is the consultation fee policy?

The consultation fee for the initial meeting is $100.  The fee is payable and due before your consultation and is non-refundable.  However, should you chose to hire our firm to assist you with your immigration case within 30 days of the consultation, we may apply that payment to our legal fee as charged. 

There may also be a consultation fee for a follow-up or second consultation if our office is not retained initially.  Please note that even if you have previously consulted with our office more than 30 days ago and you are now wanting to retain our office for your case, you must still schedule another consultation and pay the $100 consultation fee.  This is because laws change frequently and without notice in the immigration field and it is imperative that we fully evaluate your eligibility for a benefit in light of the current legal landscape, as well as any changes that may have occured in your personal situation since our last meeting. 

For your convenience, you may prepay for your consultation fee online through Paypal by clicking the link below.  If you have not prepaid for the consultation, please bring your payment with you on the day of your consultation.  Our office accepts cash, check, money order, or credit cards for payment.
