Case Mentoring/Reviewing for Lawyers

I see you’ve somehow ended up on this page… Let me ask you some basic questions:

  • Are you a current U.S. Immigration Lawyer who would love to ADD handling new types of cases confidently and competently to YOUR professional law practice?
  • Have you ever had consultations with prospective clients who WOULD HAVE BEEN a good fit for a potential cases, but you did not feel adequately competent in that area? Would you like assistance with intake, pre- or post-consult?
  • Are you referring out these cases to other lawyers, due to your own lacking comfort level (competence, experience, expertise), giving away lucrative business?

If you have answered a resounding “YES” to any of these, then you’ve come to the right place!

I’m happy that you have decided to take the leap and incorporate additional case type(s) into your practice. You can do your part to make 2020, 2021 and beyond a GREAT year of much more production!

Listen to what other immigration lawyers have to say:

I am so grateful for Steve’s mentorship. I purchased his E-2 tool kit and have consulted with him on a number of cases. As a newer practitioner he has been instrumental to increasing my practical knowledge and confidence level. It feels reassuring to have someone to consult and strategize with, especially in complex cases. He has so much knowledge and experience and I have seen approvals in every case he helped me with!  AND as a bonus: He is so fun to work with. I highly recommend his toolkit and mentorship services! ”  —  Immigration Lawyer from California.

  • STOP feeling anxious about NOT knowing enough to handle certain cases with confidence!
  • STOP referring out lucrative, exciting case work!

Having the confidence and competency to handle these cases, gives you an essential and lucrative tool in your overall immigration “practice toolbox”, which in turn, raises your value to your clients as a skilled legal resource!

LET ME HELP YOU! — Let ME be your second set of eyes and your second brain. Let me guide you like a coach, when you need that extra nudge, the extra opinion or non-judgmental input.

Here are some ways I am available to help and assist you:

  • brainstorming and case strategizing at the early intake/consult stage
  • general client management / case management advice
  • determine necessary case structure
  • determine supporting documentation to maximize strength of case
  • review your attorney cover letter
  • review your client’s support letter / company letter
  • review issues with completed forms
  • guidance with general case “how to” pre-submission
  • guidance with general case troubleshooting, pre- and post-filing
  • help dealing with RFEs, NOIDs, interview-issues, and other requests

You’re NOT hiring me to be your paralegal or legal secretary!

I’m not going to handle the entire case for you, from intake to final decision. You (or your office), are still the ones doing the “leg-work” and being legally responsible, because it’s YOUR name(s) on the G-28!

This will be a guided collaboration where I am the behind-the-scenes guide, mentor and advisor to help steer you (and your designated preparer, if you have one) in the right direction, to maximize the proper flow and direction of your particular case. As far as your client is concerned, I don’t exist. Think of me as your GHOST-EDITOR.
