attorney office

I am from Jordan, 34 years old and doing my PhD in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering in USA.
All of my Experience is in teaching as a TA or lecturer "part and full time". I worked also as a project assistant. I have a master degree in industrial and manufacturing engineering from the University of Jordan and I am single. I am wondering if you are able to help me finding a trustful and reliable attorney office in US or somewhere else to start the immigration process. I know I can do that by myself, but I think a good lawyer can avoid me go through a lot of troubles filling the forms and save me time and money by doing or not doing some procedures and requirements.

Before you head off to see an attorney or probably more appropriately an immigration agent, you ought to give a bit of thought to the process and what your employment opportunities will be for studying in engineering but then having limited practical experience in that field and concentrating on teaching/lecturing means you'll first need to decide what occupation you'll be seeking to use for skilled immigration and seeking a qualification assessment for that.
I'd suggest that you start with Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration and have a read on Visa options, the SOL and What's New information, all linked from that page.
You will find that for skilled visas, a mandatory requirement is to have a minimum of 12 months relevant experience within past two years and so if you have had that in more teaching than engineering, you have a choice to make of whether you wish to seek assessment as a teacher or attain some engineering experience for immigration as an engineer.
For future employment if you decide on pursuing teaching, you may find that a lot of educational organisations would prefer that teachers of engineering do have some suitable professional experience as an engineer and even for an engineer in a new country, most employers do rather employ people with experience other than where they do have new graduate programs.

As for help with the application, with a look at the eligibility and applying sections including all links you will find that someone with your training should have little difficulty in an application, though the very first thing is obviously for you to assess your eligibility.
