Our journey to a permanent residency was highly complicated. We needed the J1 waiver of the Exchange Visitor Two-Year Home-Country Physical Presence Requirement rule, as well as facing a few other crucial obstacles. I met 6 Boston immigration lawyers before coming to Amy Wax, but I had a bad gut feeling about each of these - Some felt SO sleazy or impatient, didn't care in an honest way, and a few were so pessimistic which left me frightened. Amy was the most sensitive and smart from the very first minutes, relaxing and optimistic while very realistic and cautious and grounded. And clear. Since almost each lawyer expresses a different opinion I can not definitely say, looking back, that Amy was right and the most accurate. Then, she was reachable and willing to answer questions after the meeting as well. My gut feeling was clear, and we went with her. That was such a smart decision. Amy cracked every obstacle on the way so professionally, prepared our files and petitions, had the best creative solutions to problems, and always on time to apply as quick as possible to the next stage. The wonderful Paulo Silva at her office is a huge asset, he was always so smart and reachable and endlessly making an effort to help quickly.
Along the way I was exposed to the other sides of Amy's work, her involvement in important causes, and her academic work and teaching, which made me appreciate her even more.
I already sent a few friends and colleagues to Amy's firm for EB1, for Adjustment of status, and for just ordinary info-pass inquiries as well. Everyone is always so happy and thankful.
She resolved my case and that case a very difficult but to her now I am legal resident of united States of America I can say Amy Wax is the best lawyer ever she is very honest person
We hired amy for all our immigration situations because she know how to help people's in my family we are all permanent resident and this is all because her thanks amy you are the best
I don't have words to describe her professionalism, ethic and knowledge. I can describe her as the Angel that God sent to me to win my case, even against the other lawyers suggestions to give up and leave the country.
I will be grateful with Amy Wax always forever .... My Angel
Amy was the fifth attorney I worked with and of course was and will be the last one. I left all the previous ones to find a better one. Amy is the best. She is very smart, knows her stuff, and the best thing about here which is very very rare is honesty. She never gives you fake hope to charge you. She will frankly let you know if she can help you with your case or not. All the previous ones charged me a lot and didn't do anything. I am so sorry that I didn't know Amy before. Had I hired her from the beginning, I'm sure it made a big difference. I strongly recommend Amy to everyone who needs an immigration lawyer.

Extremely professional, thorough, knowledgeable with excellent interpersonal skills. It was a delight working with Amy. Thanks to her, my wife's application to become a US citizen was pain free.
Forever grateful... Thank you Amy!

I called Amy and had an appointment set right away. Amy was really nice and I really liked the fact that she was upfront and talked to me in a very honest and simple way. I hired Amy to help me with my wife's case (my wife got a green card from my citizenship). I had messed this up as i was trying to get this done myself. My wife was almost getting under deportation procedures becouse i had not filed a form. Amy helped us out, and did everything perfect, like everything was perfect. The immigration did not even required us for a interview, instead they just approved our case. Thank you Amy.

Amy Wax was efficient, knowledgeable, and kept us always in the loop on what was happening during our process. Also the turn around time when we needed information was quick 1 to 2 days.
I would recommend Amy Wax to anyone who has any immigration issues. She was fantastic and the staff kept on top of everything.

Amy Wax and I, our paths had started to cross about two years ago when I was in desperate need of a good Immigration Lawyer and a dear friend referred her to me. We started working on my case from that day on and I mean when I say "we" because she kept me aware of all the options and steps being taken. She has a way of asking tough questions and being patient dealing with the pressure and stress of the situation itself. Amy has a brilliant mind, extremely professional and organized. I was very luck to have her by my side and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case. I would refer Mrs. Amy Wax any time because she is a brilliant professional. And she also has a very handsome and competent assistant named Paulo.
