Someone called me and said that a person I know had a plan to cheat me and others. They said someone who was in a position to do something was too intimidated to do anything to stop it. I said I would take action.
I needed a lawyer in NYC, and through Avvo I found Laura Lattman. I looked at her website, and liked her progressive values.
I called Laura, she listened. She explained why it was unlikely that the person who wanted to cheat would be able to carry out their scheme. It turned out she knew someone at another law firm, a trustworthy person who would have information about the situation. She talked to them, they told her nothing like what I heard was going on, and gave her a relevant document their firm had. She also got them to agree to send me updated versions in the future. Laura looked up another document from public records, and saw that things were being handled in a normal manner.
Laura explained to me how things work, which was very helpful. Then she said I didn't need her anymore. Now I can ask for the updated report directly. Great service.

After meeting with several lawyers, we chose to lead with Laura due to her professional but personable and friendly manner. We feel it is important to not only have someone who is great professionally, but also to have someone who will be able to understand you as an individual. Every meeting with Laura was informative and we were kept up-to-date with every stage of our case. She was available for us when we needed her and helped us understand everything we needed to provide as well as to expect. The most important factor was that for our case, Laura ensured we were always over-prepared and one-step ahead so that we were ready for any situation. That is what you want from your lawyer. You do not want to be in a position of not having all the information needed, or for being without documents. Laura walked us through every part of the procedure and ensured we had everything we needed. She was a delight to talk to and had a wonderfully positive attitude. I cannot recommend her or her service enough and she will always be my first port of call should I need an attorney.

Ms. Lattman agreed to handle the petition for my husband's green card after we had been told by another lawyer that our case lacked sufficient evidence of co-habitation, and was too complicated to handle. Ms. Lattman was confident that we could demonstrate our bona fide marriage by alternate forms of documentation and was confident from the start that she could handle our case.
She personally drafted letters and affadavits in order to strengthen our petition, oversaw the compiling of seeming endless papers we presented as personal evidence such as photos, bills, letters, etc. She handled all of the "dirty work" herself, making copies, filling in our applications, handling our USCIS payments, preparing our case, in an incredibly efficient manner. Phone calls were answered promptly, and she dedicated time to each call, detail to each e-mail, and dispelled for us much of the myth and misinformation surrounding the immigration process.
We were able to reach Laura whenever we had a question, or whenever I felt overwhelmed by the process. The most outstanding quality of her service was her immediate response to my calls and e-mails; She handled each problem and question with a great degree of confidence and compassion.
Needless to say, our petition resulted in my husband's receiving his green card with no problem, almost four months after she submitted the application to USCIS. The complications of our case were related to our job, where we move two to three times a year, therefore changing USCIS jurisdictions. Laura handled the paperwork relating to transfering the case, which we had been informed by another attorney was too complicated.
We had been overwhelmed by other lawyer's prices, and Laura's fees were almost half of what we had been quoted when we were "shopping" for an immigration attorney.
In short, we have Laura Lattman to thank for my husband's green card, and will not hesitate to recommend her to our friends and co-workers, and to call her in the future.
