Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 15 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. Also, please do NOT click on the Opt Out button because if you do, it would prevent me from communicating with you and then it could take a long time before another expert responds to you.

Please give me a few minutes to review your question and I will be right with you with an answer. Sorry for any delay. I may have to do some research and at the same time I read and type fast, but not that fast! Thank you for your patience.

Sorry for the delay. I just ask that if the news is not good that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all.

The law only says "substantial investment" and does not give a number. How much do you have to invest? In what city and state will the company be located?

Thank you, ***** ***** be Florida near Naples, The trick is now to find what is substantial.
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 4 months ago

I can give you an idea, but I would like to know realistically what you think you can invest.

Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 4 months ago

Is there some problem why you cannot give me an idea of how much you have to invest? How about $200,000 or more?

Hello. I'd like to help, but I don't understand why you are refusing to give me a number. I'm not going to hold you to any number, but it will help me formulate the answer. Please respond. If not, then I will have to give you a general answer that may not be as helpful.

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.
