I found Alena via Avvo.com and I have to say the reviews from Avvo.com clients were very true and helpful. I met Alena in her boutique law firm along with her paralegal-Greg and they were wonderful to me. Alena is always responsive to all her emails. In addition, Alena was informative, strategic and knowledgeable on how to handle employment law on case by case scenario. I was terminated because of discrimination and retaliation; Alena was able to enforce this through EEOC and with my former employer without having a nasty battle. Just to let everyone know that mediation can be long hours and delicate depending on the opponent. In my case, through mediation at EEOC, Alena was able to help me win my case. Not to mention, my former boss who terminated lost her job. Overall, my experience with Alena and Greg was great! She is now my go to person and I am keeping her. Please do contact her and you won't regret it! Alena and Greg will bring the quality and result to you!

I am very glad I found Alena Shautsova. From the first phone call to her office I felt that she was very concern about her clients and eager to help. Alena helped my parents to get the citizenship status. She advised us what we should do and what documents to prepare for the application and the interview. She always responded to my questions timely. She is a very knowledgeable lawyer and a pleasant person. We received positive results and thankful to Alena for all her help. I would recommend her if you need legal services.

Flawless process. Alena has been professional and responsive during my case. My calls were answered as soon as possible. Every little question I had was answered and explicitly explained to me.

I just got my Green Card. Thanks to Alena. She is very smart, professional attorney, always responsive to all questions. Alena took time to explain everything in details. The process getting my GC was smooth. She cares about her clients,
I would highly recommend Alena to anyone needing legal representation.

I highly doubt there are any words to describe how brilliant, amazing and trustworthy this woman is!
My wife and I came across Alena's information online after searching for a new lawyer for my case which we were told by a few lawyers that it was a hard one and that I would have to go back to my country in order to file which was not an option for us.
Here is a brief summary about my story: I am Jamaican and I hired an attorney there to help me through the process of getting my American Visa. He did a great job and I got a 10yr B1/B2 Visa. I came to the states and got married (my wife proposed lol) not long after. We went ahead and started to proves of me getting my papers and it went well all but one part. They knew our marriage was real but at that final interview they reveal to us that i became inadmissible and my visa was revoked because the attorney I used provided me with fraudulent information which was then relayed to the us consulate. I had commuted visa fraud unknowingly!
The attorney we were using at the time helped us get the I-130 approve but because of the visa fraud I would have to file a 601a and return to my country. We were informed that if filed and denied while I'm in Jamaica I would never be able to come back to the US EVERRR! That wasn't an option because my life was also on the line because of my sexuality. If I went back I wouldn't make it. So a few lawyers said the same thing and said I had to go back and because it's fraud it's going to be a hard one. We had lost hope and I though I was screwed! (I wish I could type the whole story but there is so much more to it)
Then we found ALENA! We met with her, what I loved most is that, we weren't just another case, she GENUINELY cared about us, she listened and remember EVERYTHING we told her. It was obvious she was no dummy and she is great at what she does. She was extremely thorough and didn't miss a beat! Everything was on point. She was so great that I got approved without having to leave the US and I received my Greencard. It hasn't even been two months since my case was submitted.
If i had a billion dollars I would give it to this lady!
I don't know if I can say it enough. She saved my life, she saved a family! I want to write more but this is just simply unexplainable!
This is truly an extraordinary woman!
Alena, once again we thank you so so so soooo much! I doubt we can ever repay you enough.

Alena was very helpful in getting my greencard when I got married to my same sex partner. She was thorough and very responsive. She doubled checked all our submited documents and corrected any mistakes. She was very quick to file all our documents. She was responded to questions I had within an hour or two. She gave us a long list of potential interview questions to prepare for when we had our USCIS interview. I highly recommend her.

I first came to Alena about one year ago. She was very professional and answered all the questions we had. My wife was very worried about me being deported and our son has a condition that requires him to be monitored by the doctors often. Alena was very understanding of the medical condition and didn't make my son feel uncomfortable when speaking about it. After about 12 months from the time we hired her I received my approval for waiver. Next we apply for my green card and USCIS website says it is in the mail ! We are very happy with Alena, other attorneys told us we had a little chance, but she spoke to us for a long time and asked us many questions when she was finished asking her questions, she told us that yes it is a difficult case, but with good preparation we can be successful. We trusted her and she got me my waiver and green card. I am very happy, my wife is not anxious anymore, and most importantly my son will have no problem seeing the best doctors in USA.

I had my provisory Green Card for 2 years, it was time to change my status and file for the permanent one, after a not so good experience with a lawyer that didn't give me confidence and attention I decide to search for a new one. Honestly never thought I would find somebody like Alena, she was always there for me, replying my texts or emails even on weekends, Holidays or late at night. I couldn't ask for a better lawyer, my case wasn't so easy but she made it feel like it was.

I wanted to let you know that my wife received her Permanent Green Card on Friday.
Thank you for very much for all your help and great advice! Your services and overall experience with immigration, helped us easily navigate through the process. When we walked to the last interview we had the peace of mind and confidence during this very stressful last step.
