Default attorney charges for consultation

Hi I would like to consult an attorney for possible solution for my pending GC application. How much would they normally charge? Do they usually charge by time or by question?

Any suggestions for good attorney in Washington DC area?

Rajiv khanna website says he charges $650 and i think that is way too much for this consultation. Please suggest whats the best way to approach this.

Thank you in advance.

Use IV free legal advice. We generally have conference calls with a lawyer every alternate weekend. IV homepage will have more information.

Khanna and Murthy are obviously expensive - they happen to be very good, and in demand! Murthy told me they charge around 500 for a 20 minute session but if you hire them they would reimburse that fee. I would say you are looking at around 100 to 200 per hour for a good not the best lawyer

Thanks a lot Sanan. Is phone consultation as good as face to face?

Default consultation

My friend did a 20 minute consultation with Attorney

Murthy for $200 which they will refund if you end up

hiring them for your case. Don't think the $500 is

correct.
