We don’t want you to become a victim of an immigration scam. If you need legal advice on immigration matters, make sure the person helping you is authorized to give legal advice. Only an attorney or an accredited representative working for a Department of Justice (DOJ)’s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) recognized organization can give you legal advice.
