I was very surprised by the amount of dedication and care Rachel has put into my case. I've been working with many attorneys in the past and I've never seen attorney who would get to know my case better that myself..
Rachel done all the necessary research and record retrieval on my behalf and suggested very honest answers, and she always choose the most economical path where possible. I was always informed about my case progress, pros and cons.
Demonstrated outstanding knowledge of the law, and she even intuitively predicted exact questions I will be asked during my interview with INS considering my situation.

My husband and I sought legal advice regarding our green card petition based on same sex marriage. We had been in touch with Rachel even before DOMA was struck down and tried to gather as much information as possible. She was extremely courteous and professional and showed a real interest in our case. In the mean time, we 'shopped around' a bit, to see what other options of legal representation we had. With all honesty, no one even came close to Rachel when it comes to the level of professionalism and knowledge of laws. So when the Supreme Court made their decision, we knew we wanted to file our case as soon as possible with Rachel's help. She dispensed a lot of helpful pieces of advice and tricks of the trade, that one can acquire only through years of practical experience. She provided help with filling out the paper work and gathering the necessary documents, and at the end, she reviewed everything several times, making sure all was in order, just like a true perfectionist. Needless to say, our application was accepted by the USCIS without any issues and the process has run quite smoothly so far. I do feel much safer now knowing that in the future I have a knowledgeable and trustworthy lawyer I can rely on and who can guide me in my time of need.

I highly recommend her! I personally believe that she is one of the best lawyers in nyc. She is very organized and knowledgeable. I got approved for DACA because of her! I met with many other lawyers in nyc before I visited her office and they all seemed like they just want my money. On the other hand, Rachel was completely different. She gave me a right info. and she explained all the processes in detail. After she submitted my DACA application, she kept me updated about my application status which made me feel less worried. If you are looking for an immigration lawyer, you should definitely contact her!!!

To begin with, I am so thankful to this amazing lawyer. Rachel is such an amazing person. She is very efficient, helpful and so forth. Her knowledge is extensive. This lawyer really knows what she is talking about. I can say that being an immigration lawyer is her passion. She enjoys being this type of lawyer, which I believe is the key to do better the work and help people that really need it, just like she did to me. Furthermore, words cannot describe all this excitement and happiness I am feeling right now to have won my case. I am so satisfied to have worked with Rachel. She was able to do what my previous lawyer couldn't, which is my stay in the U.S. Without a doubt, Rachel knows what her job is about and she is always available for her clients when they need something from her. She is always there willing to help. In addition, I feel so gratified and glad that my H.S. teacher, Rosie recommended me Rachel for this purpose. Lastly, it was my pleasure that Rachel Einbund has worked in my immigration case. I will always be thankful to her. I am so pleased I got to know her… now that I am a permanent resident I will travel all round the world and always come back to America. I can’t wait to do this. Here I go France and Italy!

Rachel approached me when I was looking for a lawyer who had some proficiency with immigration issues, and specifically, fiance visas. I was so grateful for how much of her knowledge she shared to help me feel grounded in this bureaucratic process! Rachel was patient and attentive and very methodical in her approach to our case. I would highly recommend Rachel to others who are going through this visa process.

I literally went to Rachel's office with an envelope overflowing with divorce papers I had planned to file myself. However, due to the complex nature of my case - three countries were involved - Rachel advised using a professional. Since her speciality is immigration, she arranged a meeting with a divorce lawyer colleague of hers, where we went through a strategy plan. In the end, Rachel took over the case herself and was able to make the daunting task of finalizing my divorce with my ex who lives in Europe, but is from South America, a seamless project. She is not only knowledgable and responsive, but kind and caring. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone I know, and those I don't.

Many lawyers invest their time and energy in a case, giving 100% service but often that commitment is closed along with the case. Rachel is such an exception! She answers those phone calls and replies to emails long after, even when the issue of communication doesn't benefit her financially. I love that she is so polite and so understanding. She radiates and instills the assurance of care reserved for close and loved ones. If you can feel content and satisfied with Rachel's handling of the seemingly small maters, what of in crucial ones? Even at ones' lowest ebbs, Rachel doesn't disappoint; there is indeed a professional and a friend in her.

My same sex partner and I have finally found a lawyer that we feel is very capable and trustworthy. My partner is an undocumented immigrant who has lived in the US for more than a decade. He has endured great fear of arrest all of these years.
Accessing Justice, The Availability of Counsel in Immigration Proceedings is a must read report. This report is a New York Immigrant Study by judges that hear immigration cases. These Judges have found that up to 41% of immigration lawyers are Inadequate to Grossly Inadequate in their immigration representations of their clients. Rachel Einbund has proven to us that she falls in the Excellent category which is a much lower percentage of all immigration lawyers. We feel very lucky to have found Rachel Einbund.

More than 12 years of struggle with my immigration case I found Rachel Einbund in late November, 2011. After reviewing my very large file created by previous attorneys she found numerous errors and within a week she laid out a plan to overcome these errors. I terminated my previous lawyer and the next morning I was arrested by immigration authorities. My partner immediately called Rachel at 7 AM! Low and behold she answered her phone, spoke with one of the 4 agents and was able to convince them to hold off on the arrest. How many lawyers would answer their cell phone at 7 AM?
Rachel filed numerous motions pointing out many errors that my previous lawyers made and errors made by the initial judge. I had never had a work permit. Due to Rachel’s work on my behalf I received my first work permit on February 14, 2012 and more recently my very first Social Security Card arrived March 2, 2012.
My asylum case is still pending as well as my DOMA case, both filed by Rachel. For the 1st time in over 12 years I feel such relief. It is possible to sleep through the night without fear of arrest and now I can search for a legal employment position. All Thanks to Rachel Einbund.

Ms. Rachel Einbund is very knowledgable and professional, She takes an otherwise painful process and makes it very painless, things went very smooth and like clock work. We used, and are currently using her for all our immigration needs, we couldn`t be any happier with her service and the results we have received.Having had a complicated immigration case,I consulted with several lawyers who all told us it was unlikely that our case could be won. We even filed once before, with what turned out to be a poor quality lawyer, and were denied. Then, we met with Ms. Rachel Einbund . She was honest, straight forward and informative from the start. During the course of our case, she guided us through every step and was available by phone or email for any question, no matter how small. With her knowledge and resources, Ms. Rachel Einbund helped us prepare a solid case which ultimately reopened/won our permanent residency. We have and will continue to recommend Ms. Rachel Einbund to those in need of a great immigration lawyer.
I would strongly recommend Ms. Rachel Einbund to anyone who wants things done correctly the first time.

Rachel was an integral part of my husband's immigration process. He was granted permanent resident status in a record four months. Rachel is very well organized, professional, compassionate, and encouraging. She worked tirelessly for us not only to be granted a visa but granted one in an expedited manner. We highly recommend her services. We could not have been more pleased with her work. We look forward to working with her through the citizenship process.
