    Not exactly. It was my posting where I talked about my license to
    practice law being just as "on the line" when representing someone where
    I have the benefit of examining all of their data and facts before
    preparing their forms, as it is if I were asked to jump into the middle
    of a do-it-yourselfers case that was already filed.
    I mentioned that before I agreed to jump into the middle of a do-it-
    yourselfers case, I would first have to examine all of the forms and
    evidence that were submitted plus get to know both the petitioner's and
    beneficiary's unique facts to make sure they 1) did not accidentally
    make false assertions on their forms (I can probably deal with that
    situation), or 2) did not deliberately submit false information or
    fraudulent documentation with their submission (dirty case).
    Its spelled L.A.W.Y.E.R., not L.I.A.R. and I did not spend years of my
    life doing the hard work necessary, and making the sacrifices I had to
    make in order to obtain a law degree, to become someone's paid liar, or
    to throw it all away over a $900.00 case.
    So my comment was that I usually decline jumping into a do-it-
    yourselfers case for a few different reasons, one of which being that I
    would have to change the potential client my hourly rate just to be able
    to do the preliminary work to determine whether or not I even wanted to
    jump into the case. In my opinion, the potential client would likely end
    up paying me as much or more than if they had come to me at the outset
    for my flat rate fee.
    Some attorneys focus on the "back end" of a case, where someone is
    already in trouble and in immigration court; whereas I on the other hand
    focus on the "front end" of someone's immigration process and help them
    do the job right from the outset, guide them down the proper path, and
    help keep them from ever getting into trouble in the first place.
    I was only speaking for myself, not for "many attorneys".

        another thread stating that many attys. don't want to take cases that
        the petitioner had worked on themselves, for fear of it being a "dirty"
        case. I am NOT saying that anyone who files themselves have dirty cases,
        but a lot of people think they can save $$$ by doing it themselves when
        in fact, a competent atty. should have handled the case from the
        beginning, because of some of the factors and issues involved.

        Someone once asked me why did I hire an atty. if I had a
        "straightforward" case with Ken---because I am NOT an atty.and DON'T
        know the law!!
        If I knew then what I know now I probabliy would have hire an attorney.
        I talked to several and was scared by their lack of some basic
        knoweledge. I also so scared some of them of I think by being too
        direct...oh well. I think one of them did not want to take the case for
        fear of ruining his perfect record. It like my daughters schools
        evcellent record. They purge unacceptable students on academics as well
        as behavior.
