Immigration Factoids ™
  Every year a limited number of new immigrant visas is generated, but demand generally outstrips supply. Backlogs in some categories can last for decades. The State Department's monthly Visa Bulletin is useful to estimate remaining time periods. But spouses and other immediate relatives of U.S. Citizens can get immigrant visas immediately, without a wait.

Messing Law Offices: Immigration and Naturalization Services

Welcome to Messing Law Offices

Immigration law is technical and changes quickly. Ideally, it should not be practiced just occasionally, or in conjunction with something else. This office only does legal work relating to immigration.

Most potential clients "don't know what they don't know" when they first contact us. Immigration law is very complicated. Government online sources may not explain matters in a simple, straightforward way.

We can usually tell through a short email exchange if we can help. If we don't think the law supports what you are trying to do, we will tell you. We may direct you to other resources as appropriate.

If we think that there may be an effective legal solution to your immigration circumstance, we customarily schedule an initial appointment. At the initial appointment, we discuss the problem in depth in a confidential attorney-client relationship. We review whatever paperwork exists or can be obtained readily.

There is a charge for the initial consultation, which operates also as a credit against future fees.

At the appointment, we orient the potential client to the practical aspects of case, using direct, no-nonsense language. We provide an honest assessment about the chances of success, anticipated time frames, costs, and special problems, regardless of nationality, language, ethnicity, past mistakes, walk of life, or level of education.

If you are not confident discussing important matters in English, Mr. Messing speaks both Spanish and French.

Each initial consultation looks at the case from different angles to find the best approach in terms of success, time, inconvenience and expense.

If we take a case, in most circumstances, it is on a fixed fee basis, rather than an hourly rate. This allows clients to know what the process will cost without undue surprises. Interest free installment plans are also available.

The scope of our immigration and naturalization services includes family petitions, work visas, prospective employment, investment, adoption, alternatives to deportation, asylum, battered family, and criminal victim visas. Good representation in these areas can help avoid expense, inconvenience, heartache, and irrevocably lost opportunities.

We also advise clients on the immigration consequences of plea bargains offered to non-US citizen defendants.

As a licensed Arizona lawyer whose expertise has been sought in media analyses of immigration laws, I offer guidance, advice, and legal representation for immigration benefits.

Messing Law Offices, P.L.C. is an American immigration law firm serving southern Arizona and California, with over twenty-five continuous years of delivering professional results to clients.

An exceptional immigration attorney Mr. Messing helped me sponsor my husband to come to the U.S. from France. Even though I was missing some of the income qualifications he found every possible solution to get us through the process successfully.
