Myths & Realities of Immigration Law


Myth: “A lawyer cannot possibly understand what I’m going through.”

Reality: We can. Our staff is primarily composed of immigrants who have been through the naturalization process themselves. At Michael Golden Law Corporation, empathy is everything. We truly don’t settle for anything less.

Myth: “With enough online research, I can figure this out on my own.”

Reality: The internet never tells you the whole story. Most of the information there, with the exception of government websites, is not as credible as it could be. A professional immigration lawyer can help you sort fact from fiction.
