Do You Need an Immigration lawyer?
One of the most preliminary issues that must be canvassed when you have a legal problem is – do you need a lawyer? This simple but often forgotten first step is critical.
Not all perceived legal problems might really be a legal problem! Not all legal problems may require the assistance of an immigration lawyer or, more specifically, it might not be advantageous to retain the services of a lawyer. Yet, you cannot have peace of mind without fully canvassing the issues. Do not fall into the trap of relying on what you may hear in the media or what a friend who “has been through it” tells you to do. It may be nothing or it could be very serious that has time limitations on it to act.
If we cannot help here is who can . . .
BLG will be pleased to ensure you obtain the help you deserve.
If we cannot help you, we will direct you to those that can assist you with your legal problems and questions. For example, your problem might not involve citizenship, immigration or refugee law. We will nonetheless make sure we put you in contact with very competent counsel who practices in that area of law.
We consider this as part of our professional obligation in securing the public meaningful access to justice.
