Dear Editor:
We are very fortunate in that our Miami-based immigration lawyer has been professional, efficient and very fair with her fees. However, I am involved with a website for immigrants and there are some horror stories of exploitation by immigration lawyers of would-be immigrants. Recently, two members who use the same lawyer, have been billed for or quoted the following fees: $4500 to renew the husband's H1-B and the H-4's for the wife and two minors. (They have already filed for green cards/adjustment of status.) His fee excluded INS filing fees. Ahem and this does not include the fees to file their other applications. The other member received an $800 bill for their "case review." (Their green card/adjustment of status applications were submitted a while ago at a horrendous fee, so this "case review" took place while everything was at the INS already. So. what's the "case review" fee really for? Is there an organization or legal firm where one can report such lawyers and their firms? When I compare this man's fees with those of other lawyers who have flat fees, something smells fishy.
