    • I recommend Irene Vaisman.

    The first guy that filed for me messed up my application in everywhere but she assured me everything will be alright and she delivered. She conducted a test interview about a week before my main interview and everything went smooth. Thanks again

    Irene is an attorney that won't give up even when there are issues that take a lot of work to get through. She found a way to file other than "electronically" and each filing was excepted. Other attorneys sat on our case for 2 years and didn't even try to file.

    • I recommend Irene Vaisman.

    We came across Irene's name while talking to our Canadian friend who is also a lawyer and who highly recommended her. Even before we got in touch with Irene we believed our case is pretty much straight forward, but we did some homework and checked few references. We did not want our immigration case to be held by a lawyer who does a bit of everything because it was so important for our mutual life and we wanted to do it once and to do it correct. At our very first meeting with Irene, she was very realistic with us, she explained the entire process with us, required documents and set up very clear expectations. Irene also recommended very comfortable payment plan. We meet with Irene four times in total, including hearing, and very time she provided us with the status update as well as following steps. Entire process, including the hearing, thanks to Irene, went extremely smooth and from the time we first met until the day Green card arrived in the mail was only 7 months and 11 days. Very pleasant and positive experience. Irene is an profesional, down to earth lawyer who is willing to listen and answers all questions immediately. She made sure we understand whole process and kept us in the loop all the time via phone and email. Irene never set up false expectations nor cut any corners through the process making sure all documents are collected and we are ready for next steps. Because of Irene we were able to put uncertainty quickly behind us and move forward with our plans for the future. We would highly recommend Irene and her outstanding service to anyone. Thank you Irene, once again !

    • I recommend Irene Vaisman.

    Irene Vaisman was the most professional and friendly lawer, with whom I discussed my asylum case, We got two skype sessions (for free) and she kindly clarified all aspects I should know. Comparing with other lawers on this site, she is very punctual and gave me a quick feedback. She knows Russia language and it also is great plus for me because I'am from Russia.
    I did not realise yet my asylum application, because some my conditions changed in positive manner. Anyway, I very appreciate Irene's assistance and recommend her for other people, searching excellent layer.

    • I recommend Irene Vaisman.
    • I hired Irene more than 3 years ago.
    • Irene handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I was in a bad place without hope and crying when I first spoke to her. She gave me hope. It took almost 3 years to my date in court. In meantime she responds quickly to my e-mails and phone calls and kept me updated on immigration matters. Irene was really kind, she also gave me a payment plan in the beginning of the application, and it made things easier for me. I would certainly recommend her to anyone who has to deal with an Immigration case. Thank you Irene!

    • I recommend Irene Vaisman.
    • I hired Irene 1-3 years ago.
    • Irene handled my Immigration matter.

    An amazing lawyer and a wonderful person. She handled two of my cases, one for work authorization and the other for my green card, and I was surprised how fast they both went. She is very caring and made me feel very comfortable and happy to work with her. Irene worked with urgency and always kept me updated with my status, and was always available to see me when needed. She gets very involved and makes you feel like she's with you every step of the way and thats a great quality to have, I recommend her to anyone who has an immigration case !

    I would recommend Irene to everyone in need for an immigration lawyer. She lead my case very confident and her knowledge was excellent. My previous lawyer didn't do his job and my green card was denied. After I hired Irene I received my green card in 4 months!

    • Irene handled my Immigration matter.

    I had an immigration case I needed help with so I hired Irene Vaisman to deal with all legal matters. She was fantastic. I was given clear instructions, deadlines, and guidance throughout the entire process (I had applied to be a permanent resident through marriage), there was not once I felt like I am not sure what is next. Everything was communicated to me in a very professional yet friendly way. From the moment paperwork was submitted until the approval of the case, if ever there was a question - she was there, any time of day (and if couldn't pick up immediately always returned the calls).
    Irene Vaisman did an outstanding job and for any legal matters I will be sure to come back to her.

  10. Do you really need a best lawyer?

    • I recommend Irene Vaisman.
    • I hired Irene 1-3 years ago.
    • Irene handled my Administrative Law matter.

    I don’t know how to start and what to mention first to compliment her for her fabulous cooperation and great job. To be honest, I am totally speechless. She is not only a best lawyer she is a wonder person.

    This is not only about winning of the case. I mean I am not writing this only because I won the case. As, I mentioned to her already that whether we won the case or lose I am really delighted that I got a best lawyer because she worked very hard on my case and fully dedicated herself with full potential.

    Let me share few superb things about her:

    1. She is very flexible in terms of her fee
    2. She is really kind and realize clients problem, especially new immigrants
    3. She is available for her clients all the times, her quick response to clients sms, e-mails and phone is awesome.
    4. She is very punctual and giving value to others time, I mean whenever I had appointment with her, I was not supposed to wait for her in office hall, her tremendous effort for managing appointments in exact time is really admirable.
    5. And the very peak and important point is that she is practicing a lot with clients regarding their case and make them ready, in my case she had practiced with me 6 times within a month without any tiredness and we won the case from the judge that we had chance of 30-40%

    I am really gratitude from her, If you really want to have good lawyer, don’t trust me just see her once, and thank you very much Madam Irene Vaisman, I couldn’t fine the words to say thanks to you and appreciate you for your great job.
