Jim Gray understands that immigration law is complicated and he will explain it in simple terms so that you can understand what your options are. Jim wants you to know that you should not consult a notario, that is, a person who claims he or she can help you with your case even though he or she is not a lawyer. The only people who are allowed to handle your case are lawyers or people who work for a non-profit agency that is certified to practice immigration law. If you go to a notario, you will lose money and you may end up getting deported.
Jim understands that employment law is complicated as well. Although Washington is an employment at will state, there are many exceptions to the general rule and Jim will explore all of them in your case, even ones you are not aware of. Jim will also determine whether your employer owes you any money; for example, many people are owed overtime by their employers even though they do not think they are. Washington law says that both the discrimination laws and the wage and hour laws should be generously interpreted in favor of the employee and Jim will evaluate whether those rules help you in your case.
