Messing Law Offices: Immigration and Naturalization Services
Welcome to Messing Law Offices
We limit our legal practice to immigration law. Immigration law is extremely technical and changes quickly. We do not believe that it should be practiced by a lawyer occasionally, or in conjunction with something else.
We are here to serve your legal needs.
Most potential clients "don't know what they
don't know" when they first contact us. Immigration law is very complicated and the Government websites may not explain matters in a simple, straightforward way,
but we can usually tell on the phone in a few minutes if we can help. Sometimes we do this after you fill out an online
questionnaire for us, much like you might at a doctor's office on the first visit.
If we don't think the law supports what you are trying to do, we will tell you why as briefly as possible, and direct you to other possible resources as appropriate.
If we think that there is a useful solution, we will invite a person making an inquiry to an initial appointment to discuss it along with whatever
paperwork exists or can be obtained readily.
There is a charge for the initial appointment, which creates a credit against future fees so it will not be wasted.
At the appointment, we establish a confidential attorney-client relationship and open a case file. We orient the potential client using a direct,
no-nonsense approach. We give 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, both Mr. Messing and Ms. Trull speak Spanish. Mr. Messing also speaks French.
Each initial consultation is conducted in a confidential attorney-client
setting. We look at the case from different angles to find the best approach
in terms of success, time, inconvenience and expense.
If we take a case, we feel a sense of duty. In most circumstances, we work 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 upon request.
The scope of services includes a variety immigration and naturalization matters, including family, work, prospective employment, and investment. Ms. Trull
handles cases involving deportation defense and deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA).
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 as non-US citizen defendants.
As licensed Arizona lawyers whose expertise has been sought in media
analyses of immigration laws, we can give guidance, advice, court assistance, and legal representation in the event of an immigration arrest or
detention in Arizona, or for help to obtain immigration benefits.

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. I am very impressed with how smooth he made this process for us and quick w
were approved by USCIS! We will be using him again in the future to apply for citizenship. I highly recommend
