Standard of Excellence to be Diligent, Thorough, Focused, Organized, Accurate, Complete, & Consistent
With any immigration case, it is easier to proceed correctly initially as opposed to having to clean up unnecessary delays, denials, mistakes, unwanted impressions, or other negative results. Professional attorneys know how to properly draft, exhibit, and support a case. Statistically, approval rates are significantly higher for applications and petitions submitted with an attorney. A thorough attorney will cite the proper regulations supporting the benefits sought so that an inexperienced examining officer will have a tougher time making a mistake.
KLF is committed to providing attorney-client communications without charge.
Clients who await employment status, to reunite with family, or defense from removal need privacy and to receive answers responsively. Anyone who is waiting on immigration results bears unique stress and deserves to speak with a knowledgeable professional who knows their specific circumstances. Cost-free responsiveness sets KLF apart positively and has resulted in enduring relationships.
Abundant reasons exist for making use of an experienced attorney. Using an Attorney incorporates professional responsibility for your case. At KLF, you enjoy the convenience of a detail-oriented, experienced professional who assumes responsibility for the legal drafting and who keeps up with ever-changing legal requirements.
Much of immigration approval depends upon your ability to appeal to the adjudicator's discretion and establish credibility. For this reason, I take only cases that I can represent with integrity. As an established and prepared attorney who maintains a solid reputation for ethics, sound legal arguments, and organized preparations, I am positioned to favorably influence an adjudicator's first impression of your case.
Clients are fully advised as to all necessary initial steps in a formal letter that is sent following payment of the retainer. KLF will provide an outline of the process and then update you as we go along with further instructions. I will maintain regular personal contact with you as your case progresses. You will have a responsive and personal attorney personally providing thorough explanations so that you understand the nature of your case and are involved in the process.
A step by step, professional review and quality advice that considers both your present and long-term goals.
An attorney brings experience and guards for consistency. I will review your immigration and, when applicable, tax history before proceeding in your current matter.
Kennedy Law Firm's priority in your case will be to ensure your evidence will be properly exhibited and preserved on record. KLF will maintain a scanned record of your file for a minimum of 10 years. Assured access to your records will allow you to submit consistent applications avoiding unnecessary misrepresentations and corrections.
