Attorney Consultations

If you need assistance with any of the legal services discussed on our website, email [email protected] or call (510) 835-1115 (if no answer, leave a voicemail with your complete name and phone number along with a brief explanation of the help you need).

The purpose of the initial contact is to determine if a paid consultation would be appropriate. If so, Scott will offer a consultation. At the consultation, Scott will thoroughly review the personal, immigration, and criminal history of the person who needs help. Scott will use that information to advise on possible immigration benefits or issues and to answer questions. If you are eligible for a benefit, the consultation is also the time to discuss attorney representation.

Scott conducts all initial consultations by Zoom videoconferencing or phone, except he meets in-person or by phone with potential clients who are detained in criminal or immigration custody.

Please be aware that Scott will not advise you on how to apply for a benefit on your own without an attorney. It is not possible to provide all of the information needed for self-representation at a consultation and providing only part of the information can lead to problems. Further, Scott has found that persons who try to use information obtained during a consultation to represent themselves often misunderstand or misapply it. Or the government procedures change.

Note: The Law Office of Scott A. Mossman does not accept cases where none of the potential clients live in California. Additionally, we are a U.S. immigration firm; that means we do not represent people seeking to immigrate to other countries.
