We have personally visited Mr. Elwell a few times regarding my visa complications. He has offered free initial consultation which you do not find very often. He had provided the correct advise. I had filled out the forms myself and he asked me to go ahead and file it myself which I am sure the other attorney would have easily charged us for. Also, helped me with the query. Very nice, down to earth person. I would highly recommend Mr. Elwell.
I was bringing my wife here from India and I had met with a few immigration attorneys in Newark and Philadelphia who were quite confusing and frankly abusive. I had filed the initial paperwork myself and the attorneys ridiculed me for doing so. I needed an attorney for my wife to process with the State Department at Mumbai, which was the second part of the case, and Mr. Elwell was the only attorney I consulted with who completely respected me, communicated with my wife in India (he wrote to her in Hindi!), and constantly reassured me that everything was going to be OK through this process. My wife and I were so nervous at the outset, but Mr. Elwell made the process so much less stressful. I am happy to report that my wife sailed through her interview, came here without any problems, and we surely will use Mr. Elwell's services to remove my wife's conditions from the green card.
We had a great experience. We were confused and unsure how to proceed in our immigration case & Scott explained things and made it easy. Cost was laid out in front with no added fees later. If we had a question he was always available, ready & willing to answer. Our interview went smoothly. We were very pleased.
