Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 13 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help.

A simple DUI with no injuries to persons or damage to property would not make him inadmissible to the U.S., but he could be denied if they believe he has an issue with alcohol or is a danger to the community in the U.S. He will need to take with him certified copies of the police report and court disposition and proof that he has finished all the community service requirements. He should also be prepared to prove that he does not have an issue with alcohol and is not a danger to the community in the U.S. He can possibly do that with good moral character letters from friends, family, professors, classmates, etc.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! When we are done, if you would be so kind as to leave a positive rating for my service, I would sincerely ***** ***** You can even ask additional questions without additional charge even after leaving a positive rating. Thank you for your understanding.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
