    I have know Debbi Klopman for years. We met working on a case together. Over the years we have consulted on various matters. She is thoughtful, dedicated to her clients and takes each case to heart in a meaningful and compassionate manner. If she is handling your immigration matter, she will give it 200% and undoubtedly will get it approved. I highly endorse her.
