We see many mistakes that our immigration clients make and we would like to share with you 3 reasons why you should hire an Immigration Lawyer in Maryland.
It Costs More to Have an Immigration Lawyer Fix Your Mistakes.
We are always happy to represent stressed out Maryland Immigration clients that have tried it first on their own. However, you are always better off hiring an attorney on the front end. There are many people who think that attorneys are not valuable in immigration court. Starting on your own can end up costing much more than starting with an attorney.
A Good Immigration Lawyer in Maryland is Worth it. You are Not Qualified.
There are people who don’t want to pay what an experienced attorney is worth. That is a shame considering how much is at stake. Until you are a naturalized citizen you have FAR fewer protections than an American citizen has. We recommend hiring an attorney before you get started with your immigration process. Is it worth saving a few thousand dollars if it means you lose all that you’ve worked so hard for in this country? We do not think so.
The United States Government is Not There to Protect You.
There are helpful people that work at USCIS, but they do not have much discretion. They often work at the behest of whatever policies the current administration is pushing. An immigration lawyer is there to even the odds and truly look out for your interest in planning an immigration strategy. A good immigration lawyer in Maryland will have the expertise to competently assert your rights and defend against any potential violation, whether it be in an interview before a Department of Homeland Security Officer, or in defense of removal proceedings in a court.

Mirriam Z. Seddiq and Justin Eisele, the immigration attorneys at the firm, spend 4 months at Dulles Airport defending against the Muslim Ban. They are founding members of the Dulles Justice Coalition. Mirriam was quoted in several national newspapers as part of this defense. Miriram is an Immigration Lawyer in Maryland who put their money and effort where their mouth is.
“We want to make sure that they don’t sign anything,” said Mirriam Seddiq, an immigration attorney based in Maryland. “And if they try to put you on a plane to go back, sit your ass on the floor.”The Atlantic, January 2017.
“The executive order says that it doesn’t want to let in people who support honor killings, but then [Trump] won’t let in the women who are at risk of these honor killings,” said Mirriam Seddiq, an Afghan American criminal defense lawyer who fielded questions from the press on behalf of hundreds of lawyers assembled. Seddiq stood in front of dozens of advocates camped out on laptops, surrounded by pizza boxes and tangerines meant to last them through the night. Many of the lawyers held signs that said, “Know someone who has been detained? I can help.”Public Radio International, February 2017.
Virginia—Mirriam Seddiq sat in the cheerfully resilient bedlam just outside the final customs checkpoint at Dulles airport on Monday, waiting to assist a client she’d never met. An attorney offering to represent anyone targeted by Donald Trump’s immigration executive order, Seddiq hoped to help a German national who was born in Iraq but renounced her Iraqi citizenship and was traveling to the U.S. on a B2 visa. The woman was beginning the customs process, and her anxious friend relayed Seddiq’s advice via text message.Slate, January 2017.
