    • I recommend Boris Palant.

    I don’t have words enough to show our appreciation to Boris Palant. He just got us a green card. Our case was complicated: we came to Boris after our first petition was denied and our former lawyer screwed up the appeal forgetting to file the papers on time. Boris saved the situation, made a new case providing new supporting evidence with the new ideas. He made us work hard collecting all possible evidence support, so sometimes we thought we are ready to quit, but he worked hard as well, and after all everything was paid off when we got our application approved. Five years after we had filed our first application, we got the green card thanks to Palant’s talent, dedication and professionalism. We are so much grateful to him, and can recommend him to anyone.

    • I recommend Boris Palant.

    Mr. Palant is a real professional who is invested in his clients. He took my mother-in-law’s case on a short notice and made her feel secure and confident. He asked her to prepare for their meetings, so she knew what information was relevant to her case, made her comfortable and allowed her enjoy her every day activities while awaiting her case’s outcome. He enabled her to establish her innocence and live her life with dignity and pride. I would highly recommend Attorney Palant to anyone needing legal representation.

    • I recommend Boris Palant.
    • I hired Boris more than 3 years ago.
    • Boris handled my Mediation matter.

    Boris Palant is what they call a 'Mensch" in New York - all his numerous qualifications, years of experience, cases won, weekly radio programs that educate his listeners, his truly outstanding in its honesty book "Dura Lex" about dozens of cases he has handled in the course of his career - all this has his "Mensch-ness" as a keystone. We interacted with Mr. Palant in many professional instances for several years, and I saw him in action, always ready to go extra mile for his clients. If you're looking for someone who would confirm your illusions and get paid for doing so – look elsewhere. Boris Palant listens, asks questions, educates you on the matters of law, generally puts things in prospective. He values yours and his time, yours and his life. And then he soldiers on for you.

    • I recommend Boris Palant.
    • Boris handled my Immigration matter.

    I have had a privilege of knowing and working with Boris Palant for the last two years. The keyword is “privilege” because Boris is an outstanding individual and attorney, who earned high reputation among his peers and clients. He has received multiple “Best Lawyer/Attorney” awards, which does not surprise me. It has been a pleasure to work with Boris – he is very intelligent, knowledgeable, honest, and straight-forward. My case was quite difficult, required close attention to detail, several phases of preparation, so on and so forth. However, thanks to Boris’ efforts the process was successful. I am very thankful for all his invaluable help, guidance, and exemplary work. Boris Palant is the professional who cares for his clients; if you are looking for an attorney you can trust and who will be dedicated to your case, look no further.

    Boris Palant has been my attorney for the past 10 years. All the immigration aspects of my family are handled by this experienced and very competent lawyer. Communicating with him is always easy and his advice is always invaluable. I highly recommend him. The people to whom I have recommended Boris are very pleased with his professional services. Overall, he deserves the status Super Lawyer which he was awarded a couple of years ago.

    • I recommend Boris Palant.
    • I hired Boris 1-3 years ago.

    Boris has been successfully helping my family for more than 15 years, on issues ranging from various stages and aspects of immigration for my parents, prominent musicians from Russia, to wills and property-related issues. Boris combines tremendous level of expertise with extreme promptness, accuracy, and exceptionally pleasant style of communication, which always gives me an impression that my case is the single most important one for him. When we have any legal question, our first thought is to ask Boris, even if the particular issue lies outside his expertise. We know that he will recommend the right course of action and the right attorney, even for those outlying cases. I have recommended him to a number of friends and always receive great feedback from them. I could not imagine a better attorney.

    Boris Palant is simply THE BEST. He helped me and my family with O-1 visas, it took only two weeks and

After we moved in USA, he started Green card process and in two month all family had permanent resident cards and in 3 month we had Green cards !!!!!! Everything works like a swiss watch with him!!!
    Highly recommend for anyone who need results and don't want to wait )!!!
    Read his amazing book "Duralex", it's breathtaking stories from his attorney practice over the years in New York , he was born to be a Lawyer )))

    Boris took care of my L-1 case in 2007 after I failed with my previous lawyer and handled it till I get GC EB-1C this February. He is a devoted professional, reliable attorney, creative and communicative and a great human being. I can say I've been extremely fortunate to meet him and I have never ever regretted it.
