Our company hired Ms. Lust after two other lawyers proved to be ineffectual, disinterested and seemed to only be concerned about their fees. We were extremely dissatisfied with the lackluster response time as well as the quality of work being performed. As soon as we hired Ms. Lust, we realized we had finally hired the right attorney. She was very persistent in resolving the case at hand but at the same time was very reasonable with her fees. We had a difficult case, which turned into an adversary proceeding because the other side filed for bankruptcy to be discharged of his misconduct. She was always prompt, responsive, empathetic and paid very close attention to detail. She really showed how much she cared about us as her client and went above and beyond to negotiate a settlement that was reasonable for us, while doing more work and getting more done for less fees than either of the other attorneys we had tried before her. I would recommend her to anyone needing a lawyer for bankruptcy or any adversary proceeding. I would not hesitate to hire her again for any legal matter.

My employer hired Irina per recommendation of a friend. Even though we are located in Texas and Irina’s law office is in NYC, the whole H1-B application process went really fast and smooth. Irina was in constant communication with me and my employer and has always returned every single phone call and email. I was extremely happy to get my H1-B petition approved.
Eventually, I had to travel back to India due to exigent family circumstances. When in India, I attempted to get a visa stamp in my passport but to my shock I received the 221(g) notice which meant I was found temporary ineligible for a visa back to the USA and that my case has been sent for further administrative processing. I was petrified as I thought that I will never be allowed back to the USA. I heard from my fellow Indian friends in similar position that it could take months sometimes even up to a year to get your case approved in India as they basically re-adjudicate it all over again. This is where Irina immediately came to my rescue. She urgently got in contact with my employer, prepared a large package of documents for me to submit to the USA Consulate in India, wrote a letter to the Consulate explaining my situation and followed up with them to expedite my case. Also, she has been in constant contact with me via email and offered her reassurances along each step. After stressful three weeks, I was finally granted approval and received my visa stamp which allowed me to come back to the USA. If you ever face similar 221(g) issue, I highly recommend using Irina’s services as she has all the necessary experience in this issue and can guide you through this extremely traumatic process.

My daughter has become a US citizen and we spent a lot of time interviewing various Russian speaking attorneys in Brooklyn. However, a friend suggested to contact Irina. Upon meeting her we knew immediately that she was the attorney for us. She seemed very warm, thoughtful, organized and explained every single step to us in detail. During our case, she was in constant communication with us which is rare for attorneys. She is a great person and a wonderful immigration attorney.

I am very grateful to my friend who recommended me to go to Irina Lust when my immigration case got complicated. From the day one I was sure I was in the right hands.
Irina is very organized and professional. She is always there to answer your call or email. She will never miss any tiny details and will make sure everything possible is done for the success of your case.
I will definitely recommend Irina Lust to my friends and everyone who is looking for conscientious and responsible lawyer.
Thank You Irina.

I highly recommend attorney Irina Lust. When I turned to Irina for advice on immigration and US residency in connection with corporate formation, merger and acquisition, I received focussed attention, great legal research and strategy preparation, and an expert, fine-tuned strategic plan. Irina made every effort to help me understand the challenges and pursue my goals in a timely, cost-efficient manner. With Irina as your attorney, you get the benefits of legal skills and expertise equivalent to that of a very large law firm plus the senior law partner involvement and attention to detail that a large firm would not be able to provide. If you need a great attorney, hire Irina Lust
