Welcome to Sound Immigration! I’m founding attorney, Greg McLawsen. I’m a Washington native, born and raised. Having traveled all over the world, there’s no place I’d rather call home. We you’re excited to see how we’re reinventing the traditional law firm to bring you an outstanding experience.
Whether you’re working the family farm in Whitman county or loading subs at Bangor, our firm works for you. As long as you have an internet connection we bring immigration know-how to you. Let us help you have the smoothest possible experience with our country’s immigration system.
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.
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...
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.
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.
Our job isn't over until you're holding your approval in your hands.
