So generally speaking, it seems that we were seriously overcharged for a not-so-effective assistance. This is the profile of the lawyer (http://www.ebglaw.com/robert-s-groban-jr/
). Would his experience and title change such assessment?
How much would big firms like Fragomen charge in such a situation (and for green card applications in general)?
I would need to disclose the fact that my employer had about 4 or 5 telephone conferences with that lawyer, but that was at least partly because the lawyer kept instructing us to change our job descriptions (although he apparently had already concluded that our case was a lost cause). His firm first forgot our case for about 5 months and when it was found out (by our inquiry), he didn't apologize, not even once, and instead only said that he could not comment on it. He spent another 5 months before he gave his negative advice, and at that point, it was too late for us to get a second opinion or anything.
