  1. I never had an encounter with the law until I faced immigration issues. I felt lost - until I spoke with Eliza Grinberg.

    • I recommend Eliza Grinberg.

    I never had an encounter with the law until I faced immigration issues. I felt lost - until I spoke with Eliza Grinberg.

    Ms. Grinberg skillfully and professionally presented my case in a timely manner. Ms. Grinberg is very intuitive to a client’s legal and other needs, and calmly communicates a strategic way forward in order that the client successfully achieve his or her goals.

    With time, the grossly exaggerated issues unraveled before me because Ms. Grinberg proposed and implemented a plan that helped me achieve my goals with complete success.

    Melissa, a colleague, listened to my numerous requests and kept me informed throughout the entire immigration process. In recognition of Ms. Grinberg’s preparation, persistence and personality, not only my immigration issues resolved successfully, but important family and domestic matters were resolved successfully as well.

    I recommend without hesitation that one consult with Ms. Grinberg and share every necessary detail with her regarding one’s case. Then you must listen to her! Ms. Grinberg is there to help, and that is why I went from holding a green card to becoming a proud U.S. citizen – because of her and her diligent efforts on my behalf.

    Ms. Grinberg receives my highest recommendation.

    Ms. Grinberg’s fees are most reasonable, especially when compared to those of other lawyers.

    Ms. Grinberg keeps her promises and shares only those suggestions that she deems relevant to the client’s best interests.

    Thank you, Ms. Grinberg! Mazeltov!

    • I recommend Eliza Grinberg.

    Me and my husband had a very difficult and complicated case. My husband was ordered deported more than fifteen years ago by Immigration Judge. We Thought that we would never be able to have a normal life in the United States. All of this changed when we came to Eliza Grinberg back in 2010. Thanks to her,
    my husband is now a Permanent Resident. Eliza was always willing to answer any questions that we had
    and her office was always very supporting and helpful.

  3. Great Job!

    • I recommend Eliza Grinberg.
    • I hired Eliza 1-3 years ago.
    • Eliza handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I worked with E. Grinberg as a second lawyer on the same immigration case (the first lawyer was A.J.Segal, they worked together).

    She was very straightforward and didn't waste time for spare talking. She succesfully represented me at the court. She acheived the posivite results flawlessly and in a very short period of time.

    I appreciate her attitude towards my case and me personally.

    I met couple of other lawyers before Eliza and I'm glad she was the one working on my case. I was referred by my friend who also had a really good experience with her. She doesn't give any promises and just does whatever it takes to get results. Supportive and strict when needed, knows what she's doing.

    I've been referred to Eliza Grinberg by one of my lesbian friends and will never regret the choice I made, not only because she (we) won the case, but also because it has been a great pleasure to come in to this lawyers' office and see an excellent team work. All paper work is always done impeccably and on time. The staff is professional and super friendly. Everybody knows what she/he is doing.
    My interaction with Eliza during our meetings was always straight to the point and my case (a Russian lesbian seeking asylum in USA) was treated in a very individual way. No cliches were applied. Eliza is working with your personal biography, deeply entering in details of your life, which are relevant to the case, and helping you with every step in building your story. I was impressed by how precise her comments and remarks were and after each consultation, I saw my situation differently and finally got to a full understanding of how I must present my self in front of the immigration officer.
    Eliza and other lawyers also train your psychologically for the procedure of the interview and when you are there, you are well prepared and not distracted by anything.
    I've found Eliza Grinberg very human as well. The combination of professionalism, experience and caring about every single client makes this lawyer very successful in the field, winning the majority of the cases. And I, personally, feel extremely grateful and delighted by this collaboration. I have recommended her to my gay friends from Russia and other former USSR republics and I will continue to do so. THANKS!:)

    • I recommend Eliza Grinberg.
    • I hired Eliza 1-3 years ago.
    • Eliza handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I met Ms Grinberg through a friend. He was denied political asylum and this lawyer fought his case and won big time. After visiting 3 lawyers I was desperate and called my friends for her number. I am a US citizen and my case had to deal with more than fraud. I was scare of spending money, however to surprise I no only got a free consultation but also a detail on how my cases would be fought and time frame. Ms Grinberg kept me informed of all the happening of my cases and gave me peace of mind sooner than expected. She also helped me as an attorney in other legal matters non related to immigration. I will always be grateful to her professionalism, promptness and kindness. I thanks her for always returning my calls and e-mails which is unusual of many lawyers. Yes I do recommend her service to anyone serious.

    Eliza Grinberg is the most professional lawyer I have ever worked with. She is a smart, skillful and experienced attorney. Having bad experience with my previous lawyers, I conducted extensive research before hiring Mrs. Grinberg. She helped me in my difficult situation and was able to fix my case. Being tenacious and determined, she always aims to please by carefully listening to her clients needs, answers all questions and makes you feel comfortable and secure through the entire process. Sincere thanks to you Mrs. Grinberg and all other staff for your courteous and most professional help.
