Hi Folks,

As much as we do not recommend the use of attorneys, sometimes they are a necessary evil.
With that said, if you find a good one, list them here. Please also indicate if they are in the US or DR

http://drlawyer.com/             Dominican Republic

We've had mixed results, and advice very contrary to several other DR lawyers. We're still shopping around, giving tidbits of various lesser important work to others.

Because for most of the paperwork that is done, with the help of this site, you can do it yourself.  Lawyers charge so much to have it done.

This is NOT necessary unless you have an unusual case. Most of our members have done this themselves and are doing fine. At attorney can actually screw up  your case and hold up your processing. Think about this. No one cares about your case more than you. Who is gonna send in forms faster, you or some law clerk they have doing this with a big pile of these on her desk?

That being said, Scott is talking about lawyers in the DR to do other stuff, not your visa paperwork. So we are really  :offtopic: on this one.

Sorry for the  :hijack:
You are absolutely correct on that... in fact my attorney sent our papers to Nebraska, instead of California!  It was actually a waste of money, but I had not yet discovered this site! Hindsight is 20/20.

Didn't realize that he was talking about DR attorneys... maybe I need to read better... perhaps that's why I needed that attorney for my case.  :-\

Hopefully not to do your immigration case.

First off, you can do it yourself and probably will do a better job of it. Secondly, if you do feel that you absolutely have to hire an attorney for this, you DON'T want a Dominican lawyer for this. It is an American process, and DR lawyers do not know anything about it, no matter what they tell you nor can they practice law in the US.
