Top Five Reasons Why You Should Retain Z&A
5. At Z&A, your case will be handled by an experienced attorney.
We do not rely on paralegals and clerks to handle cases as many small firms and solo practitioners do. We believe that only adequately trained attorneys have the necessary competence to represent clients in legal proceedings. This is due to the fact that immigration laws and procedures are so complex and intricate that only attorneys are able to completely understand them. Clients pay attorney fees to buy the legal services of professionals who have gone to law school and passed the Bar Exam, not paralegals or clerks. At Z&A, “attorney fee” means exactly what it says - we guarantee that our clients will get the best service for their money.
4. We understand the importance of effective communication with our clients.
Effective communication with clients is a critical factor of successful representation. Based on this understanding, we make every effort to interact with clients in an open, honest and timely manner. As a rule, our attorneys respond to clients' concerns within two business days and keep clients informed by timely e-mail or telephone call when new developments occur. The firm employs numerous technologies in order to accomplish our goal of effective communication with our clients. Z&A has recently implemented the Siebel Customer Relationship Management system, which allows our attorneys to more effectively communicate with each other and with their clients. Siebel CRM is an innovative technology that allows Z&A attorneys to have each client's most up-to-date information at their fingertips, enabling efficient and effective communication.

3. Teamwork is a Z&A hallmark.
Each Z&A client enjoys personal interaction with one of our attorneys while benefiting from the teamwork of all professionals at the firm. United States law has grown incredibly complicated and is constantly changing; an increasing number of cases require collaboration and teamwork between multiple attorneys. Our attorneys regularly meet to discuss cases and legal issues that require their combined expertise. Through teamwork, our attorneys continue to enhance their own legal knowledge while ensuring that your case benefits from the combined experience gathered within the firm. Z&A's focus on frequent communication also means that we adapt to new developments in relevant law as soon as they occur.
Z&A recognizes the importance of technology in achieving teamwork, and to this end the firm has implemented technologies that will enable its Houston, New York and Chicago offices to work as a unit. The firm utilizes a VPN tunnel connection allowing secure data transfer between the firm's three offices. More importantly, the firm has recently instituted Siebel CRM systems, enabling all files and client information to be easily accessed by every attorney in the firm at any location. The USCIS and DOL also use Siebel CRM systems to manage the petitions they receive, which means that your case will be managed by the same technology from start to finish.

2. Our double-checking mechanism safeguards your interests.
Recognizing that human error can and does occur, we have adopted a policy whereby an experienced attorney reviews and double-checks each case before it is filed. Through this double-checking mechanism, we minimize the number of small errors and inaccuracies that can cost valuable time and money. In contrast, if you retain a solo practitioner and something in your file is overlooked, there is scarce opportunity for correction until your case goes to the USCIS adjudicator's desk or the judge's bench. Defects in a case can cause delay of processing, or even denial or dismissal. Z&A's policies effectively prevent this frightening scenario from happening to you.
1. We are cost-effective and results-driven.
Our clients receive the performance and resources of a large firm, while paying the reasonable fees expected of a small firm. We make every effort under the law to protect and advance our clients' interests. Our clients demand positive results and we consistently deliver them. We take pride in our high approval rate with immigration petitions and our record in arguing cases before federal and state courts.
