We offer hourly and fixed fees, depending on the case.

Our lead attorney, L. M. Okoh-Brown, has more than 13 years of immigration and family law experience handling difficult cases, including cases turned down by other attorneys as hopeless. With her superior educational background and fighting spirit, she has won many cases on behalf of her clients.

She is fearless in her representation of her clients and will not stop fighting until the client says so. She came to this country many years ago without any money on a student visa, worked her way through school, obtained her green card, and then became a US citizen. As a result, she understands what it's like to come to this country to make a better life for your family. She has walked in your shoes. Her background and experience in various business organizations also add to her unique skills as an attorney, and help her to understand complex business structures to help clients in business and investment immigration cases. She is hardworking, driven, and dedicated.

In addition to a law degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., Ms. Okoh-Brown has a Bachelors' of Science Degree in accounting from the University of West Alabama (Magna Cum Laude); a Masters' of Business Administration with concentration in health care administration from Howard University in Washington, D.C. (Magna Cum Laude), and a Master of Laws Degree in Taxation from Georgetown University. She earned all of her degrees while raising a family and working part time. Her willingness to fight for her clients and commitment to anything she pursues is the thing that clients appreciate from her most.
