I would like to say a big "thank you" to Att. Tapper and his team for helping my family.
My relationship with Att. Tapper goes back 10 years to the year of 2003 when he helped me with my I-360 case, and later my Permanent Residency.
This was a difficult and unusual case, however, Att. Tapper made certain that all my paperwork was in order.
Nine years later I needed to help my Mom get her Permanent Residency after she was denied a non-immigrant visa twice. I now live across the country, over a thousand miles away from CT, but I chose to ask Att. Tapper to take on my Mom's case. He handled her case over the phone and by email. His team and him were always there for me answering my countless questions, listening to my concerns and making sure everything went smooth first with the USCIS, the National Visa Center, and later, the US Embassy abroad.
I am getting ready to start my Father's immigrant visa paperwork. I am contacting Att. Tapper again to handle his case.
Thank you again Att. Tapper for all you have done for my whole family!

I have been working with Mr. Tapper and his team for the last 6 years. We start with H1B visa, after renewing it 2 times, we had to apply for Greencard. Just after labor certification, had to start it over due to relocation. Mr. Tapper and his team kept me informed of each step of the process. He took care of all the paperwork, paroles, and everything else needed. Anytime I needed his help to clarify questions, he was available and willing to help. Thanks Mr. Tapper and his team.

I'm a very Happy New Permanent resident from West Hartford, CT. I applied for my I 485 along with I765 in mid August 2006. i was interviewed the day before Thanks giving. I had to re apply for I 765 again in January 2007 since there was no response on my earlier application.
Mr.Tapper was aggressively corresponding with USCIS making sure there were no more delays with my application.
My I485 was still pending. The USCIS did not even respond. They were not moving my case and getting any information of case status was impossible..
At this point, Mr. Tapper used his experience to go though 'Lawyers Association'. The USCIS had to respond to them. He then moved forward to challenge the USCIS with all documents, giving no more room to delay my application.
I was asked to attend a second interview on February 14, 2008 at the Hartford USCIS office. I don't know how some of these guys end up working for a Federal office. This time Mr. Tapper took control of our conversation. He was not comfortable with the officer who i thought did not have the courage to approve our case.
This is where Mr. Tapper used his great reputation as a 'NO NONSENSE' lawyer with many years of experience, moved my case with the higher staff at the USCIS. The officer promised to look into my application.
At this point Mr. Tapper kept contacting the officer until USCIS almost every day. The USCIS office was not interested in completing my case. This was almost the end of July 2008.
Mr. Tapper contacted me with our options. He came in contact with USCIS, to sue them. He was not kidding. We were laying out our ground plans to file a law suit. The USCIS knew our plan and moved our case to New Jersey.
This was not going to slow our plan. Mr.Tapper having come so far, did not want to give USCIS waste anymore time with my application.
I received my letter of approval with a letter dated July 29, 2008. My Permanent resident card arrived few days later.
I'm so glad i got to know Mr. Tapper. My brother also worked with to get his residency and later his citizenship. i owe a lot to Mr.Tapper who worked tirelessly on my case.
