Why us?

24/7 Secure access to your file

Use our beautifully designed client portal to access your case file any time you want. We use the portal to securely collect the documents we will need to prepare an excellent application packet for you. We also use it to collaborate on the questionnaires needed to prepare your immigration forms.

Unlimited access to your attorney

If you’re paying for a lawyer we think you deserve a lawyer. With Sound Immigration you will never be handed off to an assistant. Communicate directly with your attorney through our secure client portal. Want to chat? You can do that, too – just make an appointment with our easy online scheduling tool.

Price transparency

Here’s an idea: what if you knew what legal services cost before you start? Our pricing tables let you know what you can expect before you set up an appointment. How’s that for different?

We are fast. Really fast.

First drafts of your immigration forms will be available within 48 hours. After you complete our simple questionnaires we will prepare all the required legal forms within two business days. Forms are internally reviewed using our own Quality Assurance protocol.

Here's how we work with you
  • Schedule a free consultation.

    Visit our Getting Started page to set up your initial consultation with an attorney. Use our self-scheduling tool to find a time that's best for your schedule.

  • Initial meeting.

    Meet with your attorney by using our easy video conferencing tool. Prefer Skype or the old telephone? No problem. At this meeting the attorney will ensure you qualify for the application you want to pursue. Then we'll get to know more about you so that we can build the strongest application packet for you. Your attorney will provide you with the questionnaire and customized document checklists. Then it's time for...

  • Homework

    Fill out the questionnaires that we've provided, and upload the documents listed on your customized document checklist. Have any questions? Send secure messages to your attorney any time; they'll be returned within a business day. Want to chat with your attorney? Just set up a meeting using our easy self-scheduling tool.

  • First drafts.

    After you return your 'homework' we'll prepare a complete first draft of your immigration packet within 48 hours (for Premium service). Our experienced personnel draft all the required immigration forms, and validate the information against your supporting documents. The forms are subjected to a rigorous Quality Review process using our own protocol.

  • Follow up and final revisions.

    After completing our first drafts of the packet we usually will have follow up questions for you. We'll send you a short questionnaire that you can return at your convenience. Once that's returned we will make revisions to your packet and subject it to yet another Quality Assurance review.

  • Filing the packet.

    Once the final packet is prepared your attorney will sign off on all the legal forms as your formal representative. We will remain the attorneys in your case until the whole process is complete. The finalized packet is expressed mailed to your home so you can sign the legal forms, then mail it in the prepaid envelope we have provided.

  • We're with you all the way!

    After the packet is filed we aren't done. We stay on the job until your application is approved. Your attorney will actively monitor your case and keep you updated about developments. If the immigration service issues a Request for Evidence (RFE) we'll work with you to prepare the response. When it's time for the immigration interview we'll meet with you again to help you prepare.

  • Congratulations!

    Our job isn't over until you're holding your approval in your hands.

It's easy to work with Sound Immigration.

Building the future

We invest in the future of law. Our attorneys believe the legal system can work better for everyone, and we are committed to being part of the solution. We have sponsored, or one of our attorneys has participated in, the following projects.

Future

The Future of the Profession Workgroup was created by the Washington State Bar Association’s Board of Governors. Comprised of 19 members and a number of consultants, the Workgroup was comprised of CEOs of tech companies and startups, tech experts and business consultants, members of the Access to Justice, Pro Bono and Low Bono communities, a law school deans, WSBA Executive Management staff and Board of Governors leadership.

LegalStartup_Logo_text

One of the first such events in the country, the Seattle Legal Technology Startup Weekend was a venue to rethink the delivery of legal services. At this weekend-long competition, participants formed teams to tackle projects to bring the practice of law, the delivery of legal services, and the administration of justice into the 21st Century.

ATJ Hackathon

The Seattle University School of Law’s Social Justice Hackathon was designed to bring together collaborators from multiple disciplines to break down barriers faced by those who cannot afford legal services. Participants worked in teams to build technology-based answers to access to justice problems.

2015-12-07_meetup

This group of entrepreneurs, lawyers, thinkers, disruptors, and innovators meets regularly to share resources and ideas. The goal is to build community, and discuss trends in the emerging legal technology field.
