Our New Website Puts Readers First
Within the next few days, we will be rolling out our new website. Originally created in 1995, our website aims to educate people around the world about how to visit, study and work in the United States. In 1996, we launched Shusterman’s Immigration Update, the most popular free immigration newsletter in the world with 60,000 subscribers.
A few years ago we started producing YouTube “how-to” immigration videos. These videos have been viewed well over 500,000 times. Now, we are ready to launch our latest project, our new user-friendly website. Let’s go over a couple of the most important features.
View our Website from your Cell Phone
Almost 30% of users view the web from their cell phones. Therefore, we have optimized our website so that it can easily be viewed on your cell phone and from any other mobile device. The look will be slightly different than viewing our website from a computer or a tablet, but the content will be identical. We worked for many months to get the look just right, and we hope you like it.
Schedule an Appointment Online with the Attorney of Your Choice
For years, we have had a four-page intake form for persons who wished to schedule an appointment with one of our immigration attorneys. Many persons balked about having to complete such a long form in order to make an appointment. However, we designed this form with the aim to analyze your information in advance of your appointment in order to be able to properly analyze the facts in your case, and not to waste your valuable time during your legal consultation asking you questions that we could have obtained from a properly completed form. We noticed, however, that other attorneys simply ask you to complete a mini-form requiring only your name, contact information and a short description of your immigration issue. This type of form has the advantage of allowing you to schedule a legal consultation very quickly, but doesn’t supply the attorney with the necessary information to provide you with the proper advice.
Therefore, we have developed a way to allow you to schedule a consultation quickly without completing a lot of paperwork, and also providing the attorney with sufficient information to give you the best legal advice possible. After completing a short form, you are taken to a page where you designate your legal issue (e.g., employment-based, marriage-based, deportation defense, etc.). You then get to read short biographies of each of the attorneys in our law firm who specialize in that particular area. After you choose an attorney, you are supplied with a copy of the attorney’s calendar. You choose whatever date and time is most convenient for you. You designate whether you would like your appointment to be by Skype, telephone or in-person. You can pay online by credit or debit card. You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your appointment, and a link to our four-page intake form. Completing this form and sending us the relevant documents is the best way to assure that you get the full value for your consultation, but we leave this up to you!
