Helping directly from the Philippines
Question: Do you have an office in the Philippines?
Answer: Yes, my branch office in the Philippines will be opening up in July 2011.
Question: Where is your office?
Answer: It will be in Fort Bonifacio. My office address is the ICON II, Fourth Floor, Suite A, Taguig City, Philippines. I will be going to the Philippines between 2 and 4 times per year. However, when I am not there, I will be giving video consultations with persons who come to my office. They will be offered several times per week.
Question: When do you think you will be able to give the consultations to people in the Philippines who come to your office?
Answer: It will vary depending on my court schedule. However, it is anticipated that I will be giving it Filipino time Saturday mornings at 9:00 a.m., Tuesday mornings at 9:00 a.m., and Thursday mornings at 10:00 a.m. The video consultation will be as though I am there. With the advent of modern technology, it is a great way to help people from the Philippines.
Question: Will you charge for the consultation?
Answer: If the person will come into the office, the consultation will be free. I will take as much time with each person as it takes to determine what should be done, what the costs are and what it would take to move forward.
Question: Will you take payment plans?
Answer: Of course. I will work with the client as much as possible in order to try to help.
Question: What kind of cases will you take from the Philippines?
Answer: My firm helps in all types of cases. It will be from persons who were previously deported to the Philippines and want to come back to the U.S., to those who want to visit, to those who want to invest in businesses in the U.S. It will be to help persons with family based petitions to those with employment based petitions. It will be for those who need to do waivers. Basically, my firm can help anyone who needs help to get to the U.S.
Question: Is your new office in the Philippines located in a nice and safe area?
Answer: If you will go on the web and search for Fort Bonifacio and ICON II, you will see it is a beautiful area. The building itself is extremely modern and in an are of the Philippines whereby many businesses are moving. When you come in for an appointment, you will be able to wait in the beautiful lobby and relax for a while until it is your turn for the consultation.
Question: Are you happy to be expanding to the Philippines?
Answer: Well, I could not be happier or prouder. I have been helping Filipinos for nearly two decades and now I can help those directly in the Philippines by expanding my operations to that country. I am looking forward to beginning my operations in the Philippines and helping individuals and families for years to come.
