" We used the services of Jessie for our marriage based green card process.
We had a great experience with her and would definitely recommend anyone, including family and friends to consult her, if they need attorney services.
She was very detailed in emails-- regarding all documentation requirement for the process. She provided easy to follow checklists. She began ground work on our case, even before we met for the first time-just based on our email correspondences. She has a very pleasant demeanor which makes interacting with her extremely smooth and non -stressful. She advised us all the way through the filing of the petition. But, even after that, whenever i reached her via email or phone message for any question that we had on our case, she always provided a prompt and accurate response. She assisted us preparing for the interview and even advised us that we didn't need her presence in the interview, which saved us some money. Lastly, when everything was done, and we went for a trip to India, she inquired if we had any trouble in re-entering the country with the newly issued greencard.
In all honesty, i might not even have remembered all the instances through the course of our association with her, where she was assisting us over and above what her role entailed. At all incidences of interaction with her, it always felt, that she really cared . Hence , i am giving her a very well deserved 5-star review and i hope if would need the services of an immigration lawyer, my review will be helpful in deciding.
And a big THANK YOU to Jessie for Everything!
