we went to see an immi attorney last year when we were looknig under the e2 however we got ripped off! it seems that if you mention you have money, their little eyes light up and want to see how much they can get out of you!! if anyone can recommend a good attorney, preferably in london, i would be grateful (if that is allowed here of course)
Folks are welcome to give recommends.
UK-based US immigration attorneys tend to be expensive -- lack of competition in the market. In these days of easy electronic communication, it doesn't really matter where they are.
The E2 (and EB5) attracts consultants as well as properly qualified attorneys. The opportunity for kickbacks is always there with these two paths. At all costs avoid one-stop shops -- you need independent advice!
Any immigration attorney worth his/her salt is a member of AILA.
has irritated the crap out of me on more than one occasion....but he generally writes sense and gives good advice.
