" During the process of getting my Green Card, my husband and I had so many disastrous experiences with the immigration lawyers we were referred to; some were way too expensive, while others were just plain unprofessional. Out of desperation, we came across the website for and decided to give them a call. Meeting with Jessie Thomas was a refreshing change. For one, she was very flexible and worked with us, she was even willing to meet with us on Sundays! Jessie Thomas was the perfect combination of personal and professional. We connected with her almost immediately, Jessie makes it easy for you to feel like you've known her all your life. Above all, she was very professional and had such great attention to detail. The immigration process is stressful enough as it is, so it was a relief for me to have a lawyer who was all about the details and I knew I didn't have to worry about it. I will not hesitate to refer The Law Office of Jessie Thomas to any of my friends that I know are in need of such services because I know they would not be disappointed. "...More
