Myers Thompson’s Fee Structure
Because our clients prefer flat rates for specific procedures to allow them to budget costs, this is the system we use. Based on the excellent working relationship we have with some of our larger corporate clients, and the resulting efficiency with which we can process their cases, we are able to provide those companies and their employees discounts for some of our standard green card processes.
