Ms. Alcalde is available for consultations from Monday through Friday except federal holidays. The hours of operation for her office are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and she offers in-person appointments in the morning and Zoom appointments in the afternoon. She provides in-office consultations by appointment only. She prefers in-person consultations due to the amount of documents that may need to be reviewed. A member of our staff will schedule your initial appointment, take your credit card information for payment of the appropriate fee and provide you with an intake form to complete prior to your appointment.
Once your appointment is scheduled, you have 24 hours to cancel your appointment. If you fail to confirm your appointment 24 hours before your appointment, your card will be charged the full fee of the consultation the morning of the day of your appointment. There are many potential clients who wait months for an appointment with Ms. Alcalde and it is incredibly unfair to those who are serious about their future immigration interests to miss out on having their legal issues addressed by her.
A Word From Michele Alcalde as you consider scheduling a consultation for legal services:
“I have built a reputation for the past 20 years of being knowledgeable, compassionate, and creatively strategizing on the matters I defend. I am well known in the Immigration community and the communities I service for my honest assessments of immigration, criminal and family law cases. I know the despair family members face when they feel there is no one to turn to they can trust. I also understand the frustrations that many face in dealing with the overall legal system, whether in a criminal, municipal court or family setting. I am willing to listen carefully to all factual aspects of the case and through my intuitiveness decide what the best, next approach is to the matter at hand. I have taken difficult matters that seemed hopeless and found that through my diligent work and aggressive lawyering, my clients were able to seek the relief they needed. If it is at all possible, I will provide you with an option to defend your case. However, if your case has absolutely no legal remedy, I will say so. That is my word.”
MINIMAL LEGAL FEES CHARGED
The Attorney charges for consultations as follows:
• Initial consultation $300.00 (IMMIGRATION)
• Initial consultation $500.00 (CRIMINAL-IMMIGRATION/CRIMMIGRATION MATTER)
CONSULTATIONS ARE PAYABLE IN CASH OR CREDIT/DEBIT CARD. LEGAL FEES ARE PAYABLE BY CASH, CREDIT CARD OR CHECK WHEN YOU ARE A CONFIRMED CLIENT. Again, if it is necessary to cancel or reschedule your consultation, kindly do so at least 24 hours in advance. All information received from you in any form will be kept strictly confidential and will not be released without your permission. Having an initial consultation with the Attorney does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
