Why does the State Bar Certify Legal Specialists?

  • to help the public identify attorneys who have demonstrated proficiency in specialized fields of law
  • to encourage the maintenance and improving of attorney competence in specialized fields of law
  • to have immigration services done by a professional who knows all the laws of immigration and nationality law

Preparation of immigration petitions and applications is far more than just filling out forms.


What Does it Mean When an Attorney is a “Certified Specialist”?

  • taken and passed a written examination in Immigration and Nationality Law
  • demonstrated a high level of experience in Immigration and Nationality Law
  • fulfilled ongoing education requirements
  • been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with his or her work

A certified specialist knows the overall picture and can discuss different strategies to help you choose the best one for your needs.


What Can a Certified Immigration & Nationality Law Specialist Do for You?

 

  • advise you, your family or your business so that you do not loose out to faulty immigration document preparation or failure to properly analyze your case
  • identify problems and proactively avoid unnecessary expense, delays and rejection by the INS
  • keep you current with changes in the law which affect legal rights or status and help with past mistakes
  • protect your legal rights if contacted by the INS
  • if apprehended by the BCIS , you need qualified representation in bond and deportation hearings to assure due process and appeal rights
