Kristina was able to pull up my case, which was actually trashed by another so-called immigration lawyer practicing in Brookline, MA. All time during an application all members of her team were very cooperative, professionally skilled and very supportive. She made it possible for me to improve my status and helped to look at much reacher and broader future perspectives in this country.

My boyfriend just received his Fiancee visa today in Spain. We started our legal engagement with Maged & Rost in September 2012 and I must say I couldnt be happier with the entire process. Both Kristina Rost and Rebecca Barban were extremely professional, communication was great, responded every single question quickly and flawlessly managed our entire case. I would recommend their services to anyone in need of legal representation for an Immigration matter.

I highly recommend Kristina Rost for any law issues involved in visa processes. She was the attorney who represented my employer and me in the H1B petition. I was highly impressed by her professionalism, work ethic, and kindness during the entire process. The H1B process can be a pretty laborious one, and usually the employer even it is willing to petition for you, it has no legal knowledge about the process, and it has a lot of other priorities than your case. With Kristina Rost I felt the success of my case was set as one of her priorities. I was aware she has many other different cases, but she gave me the feeling that my case is important for her any time I interacted with her. She had a limitless patience in answering to all of my questions, and to explain over and over again to my employer the process of H1B petition.

I was referred to Kristina by a highly regarded Boston law firm.
While my situation was relatively uncomplicated, she handled it in a straight forward manner. Timely, professional, creative, ethical and also pragmatic.
The legal profession can tend to make simple things complicated – and Kristina very deliberately avoided this.
The process and fees were completely transparent.
Kristina will be my first stop for similar issues in the future.

Back in 2008, my husband and I hired Kristina for her legal assistance and services to help with our marital case. As a documented alien who was getting married to a U.S. citizen, I thought that the legal advice was crucial. Unfortunately, the whole experience of our working with her turned out the worst nightmare one could ever imagine! Not only she was not responsive to all our needs in terms of guiding us through, she was the one who made us feel extremely uncomfortable with her way of dealing with the case. She questioned our legitimate marriage and made us look and sound as if we were some criminals. Instead of trying to bring together all the facts about our marriage and counseling us on further legal steps to smooth out the process of preparing for whatever was required from us, she was rude, unprofessional and made us feel very upset! Needless to say that after charging the fee for the work that she was supposed to perform, she, without any explanations, dropped our case, because of her personal ungrounded beliefs. And the way she dropped our case was by sending us a letter, that she would no longer represent our case. She did not even bother to call or meet with us to explain her reasons! We had to seek for an immediate assistance from another attorney, and our case as a legitimate marriage was a cusses! We are a happily married couple and it did not take much for the new attorney to prove it without any challenges that Kristina tried to artificially create from the very beginning. It seemed like Kristina was just very busy with more profitable cases at that particular time, and was not interested in working with us, so she just wanted to make us feel miserable and turn down her services. Apparently, when that did not happen, she decided to just drop our case on her end without any explanations (after charging us money for doing nothing, but feeling us insecure) ! As a recent U.S. citizen I would never, recommend her to anyone, unless you want to waste your money or feel miserable!

Kristina and her firm did a great job helping me obtain my H-1B visa.
Understanding the time constraint and a bit of unconventionality of my case, I did spend time shopping around, talking with and even meeting a couple of attorneys. However, it only took a brief phone call and a follow-up email for me to decide to go with Kristina and her firm --- Kristina absolutely knew how to present her knowledge, experiences and her firm in a straightforward and professional way, which led me to trust that they can well represent me and my case. The application packet, of which they sent me a copy, certainly confirmed my confidence in them --- the packet was thoroughly and professionally prepared.
Besides professionalism, Kristina and her team also impressed me with their responsiveness. The combination of both delivers not only quality work but also a delightful experience.
I will recommend Kristina and her firm without hesitation.

I have worked with many attorneys on immigration, and I have to tell you, this has been the most painless process.

Kristina completed all of our permanent residence requirements in an efficient and timely manner. She understood the importance of this process for our family and walked through it with us, giving us legal guidance and hope. Without a doubt, she is an excellent professional and a wonderful human being. We could never be thankful enough!

Having been in the real estate business for over 40 years, I've met and worked with a countless number of lawyers.and I can state without hesitation that Kristina Rost is by far, the best, most professional attorneyI've ever worked with!
Ms. Rost has an incredible knowledge of the law, works extremely hard and returns calls and emails almost immediately.
In summation; she's a true superstar in the legal world.

I was Kristina's client for 8 years. Our collaboration started with my H1B visa transfer in the very tough time frame and continued with the challenge of green card application in the eb3 category (just received).
I'm very happy that I choose Kristina and her Team to help me on "the long and winding road" to the permanent residency. She was right here, nearby, when the help was needed be it a decision point on which way to follow with the Labor Certification, or the unexpected situations during the visa stamp interview at consulate abroad.
Kristina is extremely experienced, knowledgeable, goal- and client- oriented, persistent, passionate, reliable, caring, trustworthy lawyer with a great personality. She approaches each task both from the true professional and human points of view. Kristina is always respectful and patient with her clients. You can feel that she deals with your problems as if they were her own and does her best to find the perfect solution. She always gets back to you even when she is out of office. It is a pleasure to work with her. I referred another person I know to her and he too enjoys the wonderful service he and his relatives receive with their immigration matters.

Very professional attitude. Kristina was always available for my questions and I had a lot of them :). Always fast response. Got the Green Card in one year after starting the process.

I had an excellent experience working with Kristina Rost. I first got L visa and then Green Card with her help. She provided me with comprehensive information about every step in the process and answered my numerous questions with clarity and patience :-) Her attention to details is second to none. Overall, her professionalism and preparation of all legal documents in a timely manner made the process of getting Green Card for me very quick and frustration-free :-) I highly recommend Maged and Rost!

Almost 10 years ago, I was the HR Director at a Boston software company and was referred to Kristina Rost by an employee who had a wonderful experience with her while pursuing an H-1B Visa. At the time, I had some experience with the VIsa process but didn't really understand all of the machinations. Working with Kristina, I was able to greatly expand my knowledge of the immigration laws because of her ability to stay on top of all the laws, all of the potential issues and all of the paperwork and deadlines. I have continued to enlist Kristina's services as I have moved on to other companies and I am continually impressed by how seamless she makes the process.

Kristina and I have worked together for several years. Initially she helped me work on working visas, and then to get a green card through marriage. It has been a pleasure and an honor to work with someone so knowledgeable and empathetic. Both my husband and I are deeply grateful and give her our highest recommendation.

I came to learn about Kristina from my husband few months back. I was at that time in India, busy with my hectic schedule. She guided both of us through the entire process from getting the fiancé visa (India) till getting the greencard (USA). The best part of it is that any time you send her an e-mail she is always there to provide prompt and invaluable reply. It’s been a wonderful experience to be her client. She is perfect, prompt, sincere and proficient. If you are searching for an immigration lawyer, I suggest that she will be the best one who can provide wonderful guidance.

We used Kristina and her firm for a complicated H1B visa request. The USCIS came back to us twice for further information and on both occasions Kristina and her team responded to all the questions with detailed answers, providing correct case law examples and making our case airtight. USCIS approved the visa and we are on our way! Given our international business and contacts, I have already recommended Kristina and her firm to my colleagues and customers.

Our case was a lost case for other attorneys but Kristina found a way through the law and we have our green cards. Thanks MAGED AND ROST

I would like to share my outstanding experience with Kristina Rost. She assisted me with my immigration matters approximately a year ago. I couldn’t have asked for a better service! Kristina and the entire team are always friendly, understanding and responsive. Communication was mostly via Internet, she is very quick in responding to emails. I also was impressed by the professionalism with which Kristina handled my case. Always up-to-date! In addition, I greatly appreciate the high level of experience demonstrated by Kristina. I wouldn’t have reached the desirable results without having Kristina my attorney. It was a pleasure to work with this firm.
I highly recommend Kristina’s services to anyone seeking an immigration lawyer. In my opinion, Kristina is one the best immigration lawyers in the area.

I have worked with Kristina Rost for almost ten years now. She has assisted me in processing both H1B visa and Green Cards for staff that our agency recruited overseas.. She is extremely knowledgeable in Immigration Law and has been very helpful throughout the years. he has worked with both agency management and staff directly. Not only has she made our overseas recruitment successful but also painless. I would highly recommend Kristina Rost and Maged and Rost.

We are an agency who has worked with Kristina for over 5 years. She has assisted us in both the H1B visa and Green Card process for candidates we have recruited overseas. We have found her to be extremely proficient and knowledgeable in the field of Immigration Law.
She has worked with both management and the candidates themselves.
Her communication has always been intelligent, immediate and specfic to the situation. Her broad range of knowledge in Immigration Law is evidenced in our highly successful collaboration over the years. We give Kristina and Maged & Rost our most sincere recommendation.

I have used Kristina’s services three times in the past 5 years – for an H1-B visa, H1-B visa renewal, and then a Green Card. All three times Kristina made the whole process as easy as possible for me. She was always happy to answer any questions I had via email – responding promptly even when she was on vacation! The H1-B process was made extremely simple for me, and Kristina made sure I was fully prepared for my Immigration interviews so that everything went smoothly. The Green Card process was a little more complex and I had many questions for Kristina. She guided my husband and I through the entire process, ensuring that we had all of the paperwork necessary for our application, and that everything was submitted in a timely manner. I moved out of state before my Green Card interview, but Kristina still followed up with a conference call and multiple emails so that my husband and I felt confident going into our interview. I successfully obtained my Green Card thanks to Kristina’s knowledge and efficiency, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone else seeking an Immigration Lawyer.

To my opinion Kristina Rost is the most knowledgeable and trustworthy immigration lawyer out there. After a series of phone & in-person interviews with a highly-acclaimed and recommended immigration lawyers in a Boston area, Kristina Rost was the only person capable of handling my case. I'm always amazed how she sees all the available options in any given situation. In addition to a unique knowledge of the immigration law to the smallest details, she also has an outstanding set of social and legal skills. That comes with experience - and she has a lot!

I used Kristina's services twice - first to get my H1B visa and then get a green card. In both cases Kristina did her best. She was extremely knowledgeable, understanding and responsive. Both times everything went very smoothly. Now I’m a PR. I will highly recommend her to all of my friends who need assistance. I'm reckoning she’s one of the best immigration attorneys in the area.

I used Kristina to bring my wife here with a fiance visa and again to obtain permanent status for her. Kristina's professionalism made the whole process very simple and smooth. All of her staff is very friendly and helpful. I was recommended to her by a friend and have recommended her to many others who have also had great success with her.

I spent four years for legalization with other Lawyer in New-York before my friend recommended me to meet with Kristina.
And I felt her professionalism from the first step she began to work with my documents.
So, now I have a GC and continue to work in hi-tech company.

When I decided to apply for Green Card I wanted to find the right attorney to get real help. I was told that many of them are just telling you what paperwork you have to complete, and they just collect the paperwork and send it to the USCIS. But the forms can easily be found on the USCIS website, and you do not need an attorney for that unless you want to waste your money.
Three different sources that don’t know each other recommended that I turn to Maged Rost. I did so and never regretted it. I applied for a Green Card on the basis of a National Interest Waiver. My attorney worked with me very hard to help me to write a Personal Statement and a cover letter to improve my English and underline my credentials (that were written in specific terms in my field and unevenly spread out through the statement), making them more visible and understandable to the USCIS. We did it with great accuracy and in a quick manner, so I received my approval much faster than my colleagues who sent their applications several months before me.

Kristina has been helping me with my immigration matters. She is polite, patient and quick in responding to emails. I am lucky to have her representing me and feel that without her I would never have come as far as I have. I highly recommend her.

Although a full time resident of Florida, in 2009 I was fortunate to learn of the immigration and green card services provided by Kristina and her wonderful staff. Despite only knowing Kristina via phone calls, emails, and regular correspondence, the professional manner in which she properly handled all my legal matters gave me much peace of mind. All documents were easily explained and reviewed, all questions were kindly answered in a prompt time frame of 24 hours, usually less.
For anyone wanting a considerate, extremely competent and understanding attorney, I sincerely and highly recommend Kristina.

“I hold the office of Maged Rost in high regards. My lawyer spent a great deal of time and expertise to get the labor certification filed by my employer on my behalf certified after failed attempts by other lawyers. I was scheduled for a green card interview and my case was wrongly denied. My Maged Rost lawyer’s intrinsic knowledge of the laws allowed her to have the case reconsidered and the denial was reversed within seven weeks. My green card application was finally approved. I am very thankful to the entire staff at Maged Rost for their diligence and effort.”

“In November 2006 I found myself in an immigration predicament. I contacted the offices of Maged and Rost to find out what my options were. I was very impressed by their willingness to not only give me advice but to also pursue my case and represent me in what was a very time sensitive matter. Attorney Rost worked closely with me and the agency which sponsored me by keeping us up to date on where we were in the process and additional information we needed to submit to solidify the case. In no time at all I heard from Attorney Rost informing me that I was granted my work visa. I will always be grateful for the support they provided to me.”

I greatly appreciate the work and high level of knowledge and experience demonstrated by Kristina Rost through all steps of Green Card process for one of my key employee. I was greatly impressed by the efficiency with which she handled our immigration case. Most communication was via e-mail, and all of our concerns and questions were promptly addressed either by our lawyer or by her assistant. In addition to her efficiency our attorney provided us with personal support and advice at a time when it was most needed. Great job and thank you very much.

I've been a client of Kristina's for several years now and she handles all of the immigration work for our company. I use her exclusively for this type of legal work due to her indepth knowledge of the immigration process. Kristina is a consummate professional in all aspects of the term. She is extremely responsive both to myself and the employees we sponsor for citizenship. Her communication style is very clear and she has a knack for breaking down sometimes complex immigration issues into layman's terms for our employees to understand. Kristina's work is always thorough, paperwork always in order and I've never had to resubmit any documents due to error or incompleteness. Also, Kristina took the time to get to know our business and our needs which steamlines the immigration process the next time I need her services. Finally, her fees are always fixed and identified upfront so I know exactly how much everything is going to cost me, both her professional fees and all filing fees.

Kristina became my immigration lawyer in beginning of 2004. Since then she and her team have helped me transfer my immigration status as well as apply for my permanent residency. We all know how bureaucratic and unpredictable the immigration department can be here in the US. It's hard to totally focus in other areas of your life - professional, social - when you are constantly reminded how unstable your immigration situation is. For six years now, I have been extremely happy working with Kristina and I highly recommend her.

Ms. Rost is a highly knowledgeable, efficient, and trustworthy professional that made the process for obtaining permanent residence status for my wife so much easier than we both imagined it would be. She guided and counseled us through the steps in a clear, concise, and warm manner and her expertise was pivotal in a quick and smooth immigration experience. She answered almost all of our questions even before we had to ask them, and in the few instances that we needed to reach out with a question, she was there to answer the phone and address our need immediately. When it comes to immigration matters of any kind, I highly recommend her expert services.

From my experience going through the green card process with my previous employer using another firm, it was literally night and day. Maged Rost was both professional and detail-orientated, letting me know the hurdles through every step of the process. Any queries that I may have had were responded to quickly and promptly. Having someone you can trust to navigate through all of the requirements is key

Most communication was via e-mail, and all of our concerns, however minor, were promptly addressed either by our lawyer or by her assistant. In addition to her efficiency our attorney provided us with personal support at a time when it was most needed, the nerve-wracking days before the scheduled interview with the USCIS. She reassured us and alleviated our fears, rational as well as irrational. To conclude, it took only four and a half months from the date our application was filed to the time we received the green card for which we were applying, and her guidance made the whole process more efficient and less stressful than it would have otherwise been.”

Prior to choosing an immigration lawyer, I did a lot of research on the internet and immigration blogs, reading people’s opinions and problems they were having with some immigration lawyers. During my research, I found a great article authored by Kristina Rost, a partner at Maged Rost. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! She handled my case in a professional, honest manner, stayed in touch and is a very knowledgeable attorney, which is important as immigration laws are constantly changing. I trust Kristina as I would myself. I would also like to add that the entire team at Maged Rost was wonderful, always nice, friendly and eager to help

Kristina was my attorney for my H1 visa. She compiled a perfect case and she obtained my visa in less than a week. After that I hired her to finish my Green Card process, which I obtained two years late. I was very happy with her services and timing. She is great professional and has a very knowledge of the immigration law. I do recommend her to any immigration issue that you may have! She is probably one of the best immigration attorneys in the Boston Area!

I became a client of Kristina's in 2001, when she assisted me with my immigration case. I can wholeheartedly recommend Kristina, since she is one of the most professional and knowledgeable attorneys. The immigration process is very complicated and frustrating, and she handled my case with great attention and courtesy throughout. All and any of my questions got answered in detail and in understandable terms, I was always comprised of the status of my case and the next step. Kristina is always up-to-date with the most recent legal developments, which is crucial in immigration law. I highly recommend her services to anyone!

II am a former client. Maged and Rost had represented my husband and me in obtaining our green cards through employment. We got our green card about a year ago. Kristina is VERY PROFESSIONAL and BRIGHT. She knows a lot, always updated. She had always proactively contacted us, so we didn't have to call to find out the status of our case.
I find it very important that this firms practices immigration law ONLY, since immigration laws are very complicated and the changes are ongoing.
Kristina is also very trustworthy and honest. If she thinks that she cannot represent you for this reason or another - she will tell you this right away. She only takes cases that she feels confident about.
Your future depends on professionalism of your lawyer: it is very hard to control what are they doing, you have to trust them. You have to believe that they know what are they doing because in real life there is DELETE or Cancel button. Their mistakes may change your life. Unfortunately, there are many examples of ruined lives because of the wrong decisions made by lawyers.
Our case was very complicated so it took about 6 years all together. It could have taken much longer if it wasn't Kristina's brilliant ideas!
I strongly recommend this firm - you won't be disappointed with their service and the result.
