What Questions Should I Ask My Immigration Attorney?


There are few legal matters more personal, and, often, time-sensitive, than those involving immigration. If you’re facing an immigration-related issue and you need legal counsel, you must understand that you can’t hire just any attorney, you need an attorney who checks all the boxes and who can effectively handle your case. Your future in this country may hang in the balance, so it’s not a decision to be taken lightly. For this reason, our Wisconsin immigration attorneys have compiled a short list of some of the most important questions you should ask before hiring your immigration attorney.

Questions to Ask Before Hiring Your Immigration Attorney

Just some of the most important questions you should ask both yourself and your attorney before moving forward with your case are as follows:

  • Can the attorney answer your questions? The most important trait of any attorney is having a deep knowledge of the law. If your attorney doesn’t understand immigration law or can’t answer even the most simple questions surrounding your case, you should probably hire another attorney who’s better capable of tackling your case.
  • Does the attorney exclusively practice immigration law? Just like you wouldn’t hire a plumber to work on your car, you shouldn’t hire a personal injury lawyer (or any other type of lawyer) to handle your immigration case. Here at Sesini Law Group, S.C., immigration law is all we do. We don’t dabble in several fields of law–we exclusively help clients facing critical immigration-related matters.
  • Is your attorney approachable and available? When hiring an attorney, you should feel comfortable and confident in your decision. Here at Sesini Law Group, we keep our clients in the loop at all times, answer each of their pressing questions, and make ourselves constantly available to speak with our clients, should any other questions or concerns arise. The bottom line is that trust is the foundation of any relationship, especially an attorney-client relationship.
  • How is your attorney rated on Google? Just as you would look up a restaurant’s reviews before dining there, you should also look up your prospective law firm’s reviews. Sesini Law Group, S.C. maintains a near-5-star rating which showcases our dedication to the well-being of our clients.

If you have any other questions or you’d like to speak with us about your case, simply pick up the phone and give us a call or fill out our online contact form today.
