Thank you so much Ilona, Denis, Arthur, Kirill and all others who helped us. We found Ilona's office last January after our case was denied 3 times (during 3.5 years) , our former lawyer said we had no chance to stay here. Our friends gave us Ilona's number and they said if Ilona says yes it means yes. These amazing people helped us to reopen our case , helped us to transfer our case from NC to NY. And last Tuesday our case was granted ?? no words to explain our feelings!!! Denis was with us in court. He is the truly the best !!! Thanks you so much for everything you did for us !!! We will always recommend Ilona and Denis and everyone who works with them . They are very professional. Ilona always respond to my emails during first 30 minutes. Or if we had a question and I called to the office Ilona's assistant Kirill could tell me everything I needed. These people know what to do! Anastasia
Ilona is the true professional in every sense of the word. In my opinion, she is what a real practitioner of the law swears in to be. Let me explain what I mean.
Handling an immigration case for a client is a very delicate matter that bears a ton of responsibility. One simple mistake and the person's fate is sealed (oftentimes, in a terrible way). By definition, an immigration lawyer is not the one who merely fills in the required forms and mails the package to the designated address to allow a US CIS officer to take it from there. This is a paralegal's territory. A true immigration lawyer approaches a case as if it is a "murder case" with no evidence left behind and relying only on her talent, deep knowledge of law, and ability to intuit, sleuth and deduce.
An that is what Ilona does, and that is what she did for me. She was able to successfully resolve my case (a virtually impossible case, I should note) of changing status from M-1 to B-1 and then to F-1, after which I was able to obtain my green card.
I highly recommend this brilliant and hard working lawyer to anyone with any immigration situation, complicated or not. Trust me, there is always a way to solve a case, even the most deadbeat ones. There is always some loophole, new statute, or "addendum" to a law that can be found and utilized given your case ends up in the hands of the right legal practitioner. Ilona is such a practitioner.
Ilona Dzhamgarova assisted to win appeal. Previous lawyer spoiled my abused spouse petition application I 360 and Ilona helped me to WIN THE APPEAL. She is great attorney , VERY, VERY HONEST.
For 3 month she won my appeal . I paid her half less than I paid to previous lawyer. but previous lawyer lost my lose and she won the case.
I was referred to her by Russian Radio and I am very grateful that they recommend people who really assist She always respond to my email withing less than 30 minutes. Every communication with Ilona I had respond immidetly. I was shocked once that she respond at 1:45 at night . That day I was stressful and asked her '' Ilona do you think I should pack my stuff?'' She responded at 1:45 '' No, I think we provided enough evidence for USCIS to reconsider their decision , I did my best''. She was right she DID HER BEST OUT OF BEST.
MS Dzhamgarova thank you for everything what you have done for me. Ilona helped me to get green card through the employer. First I had H-1 B and then 2 years after she did green card for me. Labor certification took almost a year then very fast I got all papers. She honestly can be done. Employer is big company in Manhattan they working with Ilona for a long time and they recommended her. I was happy that she is also from Soviet Union as I am but different cities. I also referred her my sister she helped her to get EB 5 visa thought investment. My sister purchased a big catering in Long Island and Ilona help her in very short time to get green card through investment .
Ilona YOU ARE THE BEST. I never had a hope after my case was spoiled by my lawyer that I can win it.

Ilona Dzhamgarova is honest best and very knowledgable lawyer. I am from Ukraine and she helped me to get asylum very quick and very fast in best professional way. She helped my another friend who transfere her case from another lawyer because another lawyer spoiled her case and Ilona won her in Board of Immigration Appeal. We respect her and are greatfull to her and very happy that Ilona was our lawyer.
I had a good fortune of having Ilona Dzhamgarova as my lawyer. I have applied for and were denied asylum before hiring Ilona Dzhamgarova and with her help I have been granted lawful permanent residence in the USA. It was extremely helpful to have Ms. Dzhamgarova guide me through the complex legal proceedings. She is responsive, professional and straightforward. Her promptness in addressing concerns and questions is inarguable. I am falling short of words to express my gratitude for helping me out of the legal situation.
For those looking for immigration help, please do not waste your time looking around, this is it!
I visited several attorneys before I was recommended Ilona. Some of them were very expensive but did not suggest anything - I guess they just did not want to think and so some extra effort. My case with H1Bwas approved and I am successfully working in the US! I should admit, Ilona Dzhamgarova is highly professional, intelligent, caring, and very knowledgeable. Most importantly, she keeps in touch with her clients no matter what and you get an answer to your questions from her very fast. I really appreciate this support- sometimes it is vitally important, esp. with immigration cases. Thank you very much for your work, Ilona Dzhamgarova!
I am a former client of Ilona Dzhamgarova and I can honestly say that she had a tremendous impact on my life- a very positive one. With the help of Mrs. Dzhamgarova and her wonderful paralegals I was able to overcome many of the obstacles that immigration laid in my path. I had to endure many difficult experiences and she was with me every step of the way. She filed everything correctly and on time and collected all the evidence needed in order to aid my case. The team worked diligently, paying close attention to details. I am very impressed with Mrs. Dzhamgarova's excellence in providing a reliable immigration representation. I could not have gone through the process without her help, professionalism and support. I would highly recommend this lawyer to each and every immigrant with a very complicated case.
Ilona this is not enough words to tell you thank you for my asylum case. I came from Ukraine and Ilona helped me to win my asylum case. I came from Florida to see Ilona because all my friends from Ukriane said if she will take it she will do it. She took my case and she won my case. Thank you dear Ilona. I don't regret that I came from Florida to you. and waited 2 hourst in line to see you, You worth even to stay all night up. Now I understand why you have 100 people every day because you are really good lawyer. Thank you for my friend Kovalchuk who you also helped.
