Immigration Law Consultation Policy


We are pleased to offer free initial consultations for our clients. Based on my years of experience, I have found that the majority of the people who contact me fall into one of the following categories:

* People looking for an immigration attorney;

* People who want to know if they qualify for an immigration benefit, want a case evaluation and might need an immigration attorney; or

* People who just need some questions answered but don't want to hire an attorney.

All of these types of inquiries are perfectly fine and I welcome all of them. However, because I have a very busy practice and there are only so many hours in a day I have had to devise a more efficient way to manage each type of inquiry. Please read the following to determine how to make your inquiry


I Need an Immigration Attorney! Please call or email and we can set up a consultation right away.

I bill on a flat fee, rather than on an hourly basis. Fees in each case reflect the individual facts presented during the consultation, the urgency of the client’s problem, and the anticipated time and skill required to achieve the client’s goals. If you have an immigration law issue and you would like to have a consultation with me to discuss your case and retaining my services please email me at sethspellman@gmail.com or call me at 386 462-9591 to set up a time for a consultation.

I want to know if I qualify for an immigration benefit but I'm not sure I need an attorney.

If you want to find out if you or a family member qualifies for some sort of U.S. immigration benefit please email me at sethspellman@gmail.com or call me at 386 462-9591 to set up a time for a consultation. The initial consultation of not more than 15 minutes is free of charge. Subsequent consultation, either on e-mail or telephone will be billed at $150 per hour.

I don't want to pay an attorney I just want a few questions answered.

I understand that some people may not want to hire an immigration attorney for any number of reasons. Some people can't afford to pay an attorney. Some people just have a few simple questions and don't want to have to hire someone just to get them answered. Others are do-it-your-selfers just looking for some guidance. I don't mind these inquiries either and I enjoy helping people by answering immigration questions. However, a majority of the questions I receive are questions that you can answer yourself by a little research on the internet. Therefore, to be more efficient and so that others may benefit from my services an initial consultation of not more than 15 minutes is free of charge. Subsequent consultation, either on e-mail or telephone will be billed at $150 per hour.

Thank you for your inquiry and for helping me to assist others by following my inquiry policy.
