Initial Consultation

You have been researching your immigration questions for a while now. Your situation is a bit unique; no one you know has encountered it. Google is failing you. What should you do next? It’s time to talk to an immigration lawyer. Korngold Law invites you to schedule your first meeting with the firm’s Owner and Managing Attorney, Miriam Korngold.

What should I expect from my initial consultation?

The purposes of your first meeting with Miriam are to discuss your immigration law matter, the options available to you, and the legal services Korngold Law can provide in your case.

This first meeting does not create an ongoing attorney-client relationship. Korngold Law’s work for you will continue after the consultation ends only if both you and Miriam agree to additional work. Regardless of whether you and Miriam continue working together, Miriam will protect your privacy and keep any information you share with her confidential.

How much does an initial consultation cost?

Initial consultations generally cost $225.00 and last 50 minutes. Consultations at the Northwest Detention Center cost $325.00 for 50 minutes. These consultations are priced to cover Miriam’s travel time and expenses. For your convenience, Korngold Law accepts online credit card payments from most major credit card companies.

Where will the consultation take place?

Korngold Law offers several options, depending on your situation. If you are…

  • in or near Seattle: You and Miriam can meet in person at Miriam’s office, located at 1601 5th Ave., 11th Floor, in downtown Seattle.
  • far from Seattle: You and Miriam can meet by video (Skype) or by phone. When scheduling a video or phone meeting, it is good to make sure you will have privacy so you are not inadvertently overheard while discussing any confidential details about your case.
  • detained by ICE at the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center: Miriam will meet you there. Please note that these meetings are only available on Tuesdays, and Korngold Law charges a higher consultation fee to account for Miriam’s travel time and costs.

How do I set up the meeting?

  • Please contact Miriam to book your appointment.
  • Miriam will then follow up with you to confirm your appointment time, send you a consultation agreement covering the terms of your meeting, and provide you with a link to make an online payment.

Miriam looks forward to meeting with you.
