Nachman Phulwani Zimovcak (NPZ) Law Group, P.C. values quality Immigration and nationality Law service at affordable rates. We prefer to assign fixed fees for a specific legal project because we believe this helps clients to budget the legal costs to meet their objectives. For some very unusual cases we do charge fees on an hourly basis after discussion with the client. NPZ understands that immigration law services are a personal service and that each client is unique. We acknowledge that clients have different needs and financial abilities. While we generally prefer payment in full before our services are commenced, we will, on occasion, provide our clients with the option of paying half of the fee when case is initiated and the other half of the fee (and all disbursements) before filing the case.
We do not provide fee quotes on our website or over the phone because we believe it is important that the client meets with the attorney. Oftentimes, what a client thinks they want is not in their legal best interest, so we find it is always best to have the client speak to an attorney first. If you are serious about using a qualified, dependable, and affordable firm to assist you with your legal needs, we encourage you to contact our office to set up a consultation with one of our professionals. You can feel free to call us at 201-670-0006 or you can e-mail to us at .
