  1. Friends, I appreciate all the calls to my office! Unfortunately, I cannot answer questions over the phone due to my busy schedule working for my clients. However, if you'd like to meet with me about your case, call to SCHEDULE a Consultation…(718) 301-9732. Consultation FEES apply. Phone or office meetings only.

  2. I cannot for the life of my figure out why we would grant citizenship or legal residence status to anyone who needs government assistance. Unless you have come here seeking asylum and have been proven you truly need to leave your home country you should not be allowed to come and freeload off Americans. Asking for a fee waiver should be a red flag right off the bat.
