I would DEFINITELY recommend Michael Goldman - aside from the fact that he was professional and knowledgeable, he was always available, so very nice and helpful. He was very efficient and made the whole process of applying for a Green Card less confusing and unknown. He walked us through the entire process and because of his efficiency, the whole thing took much less time than we expected.
Michael gave a very outstanding service throughout my gc process. He always keep me well informed, and is responsive in timely manner. His upbeat yet relaxed personality has helped me much emotionally, I would say this is a unique trait that other attorneys don't have. I had been working with 2-3 attorneys previously on my cases, and I've never seen an attorney as sincere as him. Overall, I have much fun working with him and definitely will continue with his service going forward.
Michael took on my mother's immigration case which had stalled and gone into a "black hole". A process that was supposed to take one year was now in its fourth year and no answers or explanations were provided. Michael did an incredible job! His knowledge, skills, ability to make the right judgments along the way and working all avenues to get to our ultimate goal was what lead to the resolution of this matter. In addition, working with Michael was a pleasure. I felt genuinely cared for as a client, he demonstrated incredible care for my family and I. I was constantly updated and informed throughout the process. As a matter of fact, I was often hard to get a hold of and Michael did not stop at leaving me a voicemail, he always made sure he delivered his messages directly to me and made sure I understood what the next steps were. My mother has been granted the Green Card and is coming to the United States to visit us, her only daughter and only two grandchildren after four years of being denied not only a Green Card but entry into the US. I am certain that this would not have been the case if it wasn't for Michael's work and effort.
I met Michael in the Summer of 2013 for a consultation. My situation was tricky, but he was extremely patient, honest and informative. Most of all, he seemed to REALLY care and WANTED to help me! I liked him from the minute I walked into his office. I then hired Michael in September of 2013. He first filed a B-2 COS for me and later an H-1B COS. Both cases got approved! After being very unhappy with my previous lawyer, I was very positively surprised by Michael's in-depth knowledge, his prompt responses and thorough work ethic! He was always on top of things and always kept me informed! Michael was always available via phone and email and even accommodates his clients with late hours, if needed. I will definitely go back to him for future assistance! I highly recommend Michael to each and everyone who is seeking an exceptional, professional and caring immigration attorney!
My experience with Michael was entirely positive. I recommend him wholeheartedly and without reservation.
My case (adjusting status to Permanent Resident through marriage) was somewhat problematic. I had consulted several attorneys prior to meeting Michael, all of whom were generally optimistic about my chances of success though not without misgivings, in light of my history out of status. I chose to work with Michael because, after some discussion of my case in which Michael advised my wife and I of the possibilities and options, I felt he was not only knowledgeable but also amiable, unassuming and compassionate. Michael consistently demonstrated all those qualities and was furthermore accessible, responsive and generous with his time. Michael also clarified the responsibilities of the joint sponsor, effectively allaying our sponsor's concerns.
Most importantly, when we were advised by the USCIS that our petition was to be denied, it was Michael's thorough knowledge of immigration law (to wit: an exemption pertinent to my case), which resulted in a reversal of their decision, and thus our petition was approved. Michael's initiative preempted what would likely have been a prolonged, stressful and expensive appeal process. We are grateful for his guidance and expertise, and would enthusiastically recommend him.
I hired Michael for my own immigration matter. I am very pleased with his services. He is prompt in replying to his emails, gives sound advice, and meets deadlines. I am impressed with the quality of his work. He also conducts him in a very professional manner. If I need an immigration attorney in future, I wouldn't it give a second though before hiring him again. I highly recommend Attorney Goldman's law office.
Mr. Goldman is an excellent attorney. He is very reliable and not like most lawyers where you cannot get in touch with them. He is always available, shoot him an email and you get a fast response. I am very happy with the service he provided for me since he helped me every step of the way. He is very knowledgeable about what he is doing, wel organized, and keeps you informed about your case without you having to call him. I would recommend him to anyone, because he is trully the best.
I had engaged Michael as an attorney for myself and my son's immigration matter. Michael's advice was spot on. He reviewed our matter thoroughly and helped us fill out the paper work in a flawless manner. with successful results.
I found Michael to be a thorough professional, knowledgeable, patient and available when needed for consultation.
Compared to my experience in dealing with some other lawyers and a law firm, my dealing with Michael was by far more satisfying with an excellent end result
I contacted Michael Goldman to help me understand my options in the complex world of Immigration law. Michael is an expert and was able to develop a creative, but legal solution to my problem. Michael helped me navigate the confusing government forms and actually processed them for me. We were successful in getting approval for my request. I strongly recommend Michael Goldman for any Immagration Law needs.
My company hired Michael to transfer my H1B visa. I was super happy about his job, from the beginning about collecting all documents I needed until the end. H1B transfers are often tricky and take so long, the process with Michael got less then 5 weeks overall, and less then 17 days to be approve by USCIS and get my notice: super fast and easy. Thanks Michael.
