It was a pleasure working with Mr Gursoy. He definitely knows what he is doing and is very passionate about it. From the very beginning he told me I really had nothing to worry about regarding my case and he was so right. Very knowledgable and I will definitely recommend him to anyone.

Very good lawyer!! I had a case with immigration and this lawyer did a good job. Processing time for my case is up to 18month. I got approved in less then 6 moth. My friend did it thru different lawyer, because she doesn't leave in NY and she wait 15 month till she got approved. EXCELLENT!!!

My Lawyer was able to extend my visa that I submitted late and felt the immigration service might not approve it due to late submission. My lawyer was able to assure me of putting in his best . I am really impressed with his effective efficiency and i can strongly recommend him to any client who might require the services of a competent lawyer. I however give kudos to my lawyer and thank him so much for his assistance. God bless.

Don't waste your time looking for lawyers. Mr. Mike Gursoy will help you out.

For the last few years, I had used 3 attorneys in NYC, but none of them were as professional as Mr. Gursoy. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Posted by Moosa, a Immigration client, Flag
I originally hired Mike to apply for my immigration status about 3 years and went back to him when I had to apply for permanent green card as well. He is very reliable lawyer and the team of people who he works with are responsible individuals. I was informed of every single little thing that went in to application as well as after word when I was waiting to hear back from the INS. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable and honest lawyer who is not out there to rob you blind.

Very professional and well knowledge staff members. My whole permanent resident process was well explained and it was very easy to follow given the directions. Very helpful and willing to answer questions. I would use his services again with great confidence in the future.

We found Mr. Gursoy and his staff while searching the web for an immigration attorney during a most difficult and traumatic time (Mr. Gursoy had a video of how he handles immigration cases and we were very impressed). My husband of 14 years was picked up by immigration at 6:30am on October 22, 2012 in the middle of his sleep in our family home with our 11 year old son sleeping in the next room for a crime he committed almost 20 years ago. Mind you, my husbands been here on a green card since 1978 when he was just 10 years old. The family loved Mr. Gursoys personality. He's very outgoing and he definitely knows his stuff. He was very confidant that my husbands case would be closed. He had more faith than I did. After 6 long months and millions of documents submitted my husband finally got his master hearing. That was April 3rd, 2013. We ended up with the most difficult judge in the entire country (from what I researched on the web). After seeing the judge my husbands trial date was scheduled for September 29, 2015 (yes, you read that correct) to see if he was staying here with me and our son or being deported to a country he has never been to. Mr. Gursoy not long after the master hearing requested a face-to-face meeting with the judge and prosecutor to discuss my husbands deportation case (for heaven sake, he made a mistake almost 20 years ago). Tuesday, May 14, 2013 I received the greatest news from Mr. Gursoy. the judge reviewing my husbands deportation case decided to close his case. During the entire time we retained Mr. Gursoy he kept up up to date and well informed as to what was going to happen. If we needed a question asked and we called on a Saturday or Sunday and left a message he returned the call within 10 minutes and reassured us of our concern. We were so happy with him and his staff that we retained him to handle our bankruptcy case. I'd definitely refer Mr. Gursoy and his staff to others that are in need of an immigration attorney or bankruptcy attorney. He's very knowledgable.

I would highly recommend Mike Gursoy and his staff. From the very start they were always available to answer questions. After a year and half my case was dismissed thanks to the hard work and professionalism of Mike and his staff. They were all very knowledgeable and kind. He was easily accessible and very responsive during entire process.I would like to thank Mike and his staff for all their work in resolving my case. If you need an immigration attorney who is accessible and competent Mike is your guy.

It has been great dealing with Gursoy law firm. Everybody is very friendly and trying to help as much as they can. I have been dealing with Ali on the phone. I haven't even seen his face but he gave me the impression that he knows what he is talking about, his knowledge and trust and no regrets. He helped my wife and I open up a small business. He helped us right from the beginning to the end. He helped us forming an LLC, getting all the necessary documents, tax ID numbers etc to getting our E2 visa. It was a complete package with confident and very very very reasonable price compare to other law firms out there. Thank you Gursoy Team thank you Ali.

I read a lot of excellent reviews for Mike Gursoy before hiring and decided to work with him. And I was not disappointed.
Mike won our case in court! I am very pleased with the work with Mike. He is very knowledgeable and responsive person. Before hiring him I had a really bad experience with my previous attorney, who promised us everything and did nothing. But as for Mike, it is completely another approach on his part. He demonstrated a high level of professionalism. He successfully managed with his work. He was very attentive to every detail in my case and explained me everything I should keep in mind.
I am happy and thankful for Mr. Gursoy and his staff. I recommend Gursoy Law Firm to everyone.
Posted by Jean, a Immigration client, Flag
Umit Mike Gursoy is a very disciplined and effective attorney. He is very thorough in keeping me abreast of the case he handled for me. He is very considerate. He does not hesitate to call back when you contact him. Because of his great knowledge of immigration laws, he exudes great confidence in the court room.
Furthermore, he is very articulate and his prime objective is to defend his client.
Therefore, I will not hesitate to recommend his services for anyone who is seeking a competent attorney.
By the way, the outcome of my case was more than positive. It was awesome.

My lawyer for Mr.ALi. He did a great job. The main feature in work with him was that he knew what he was doing. He never lied about the possibilities of the case resolution. And he knew which way would be the best and the most appropriate. He is 100% on your side and you trust him, because he knows what he's doing.

I used Mr. Gursoy's services for my boyfriends immigration matter. Mr. Gursoy not only helped me save my boyfriend from deportation but he also helped me regain my sanity. I was depressed and had major anxiety issues solely due to the fear of losing my boyfriend of 7 years. I will recommend Mr. Gursoy to everyone and anyone that requires an attorney not just in immigration but in all fields.

Mike Gursoy’s professional conduct and expertise are outstanding. He handled my immigration case with dedication, confidence and, what is more important, in timely manner. Mike was diligent and helpful through the entire process. He was willing to answer my questions in detail, not to mention his priceless advice and excellent knowledge in the immigration field.
To tell the truth, I can’t imagine a better immigration lawyer and I can assure you that you will be hard pressed to find someone more experienced and reliable.
I will definitely recommend him to anyone, who needs legal advice, because when it comes to the immigration matters, you cannot be in better hands.

One of my friends recommended Michael Gursoy for my situation. He suggested the right and the only legit case for me and my wife, which no other attorney even mentioned about. Since then he was handling our case in a very professional and law-abidance manner.
He is a natural English-speaking attorney and has a good presentable outlook. Michael knows the US law system, the USCIC workflow inside and out, and the Court procedures.
He was always giving us the proper picture to all of our concerns: pros and cons, possibilities and threats. He always prepared and filed all the paperwork in-time or even far earlier. Michael even prefers to visit the Court by an hour or even two earlier – in order always to be the first in front of the judge.
Michael was doing everything possible in order to move on with our case, and even more that I could expect. Sometimes, due to USCIC national applications volume, we had delays, which, unfortunately, no one is capable to do anything with, other than wait in line. And even then, Michael suggested the ways that helped us with this.
I would also point that it is very important to closely collaborate with his job. Not to hesitate to ask or suggest a different view. And, more important – be helpful to his job and to your own case.
I am thankful for continued and dedicated hard work of Mr. Michael Gursoy and his staff. I have recommended his service to several of my friends, whom he already helped to succeed. I recommend Mike to anyone seeking for the right immigration attorney.
Gursloy Law is sure an attorney at law which America should be proud of.

I had gone to other lawyers before I met with Mr. Gursoy, other lawyers lacked knowledge, very unsresponsive and never kept me informed.. A family member recommended Mr. Gursoy. After months of headaches I went through with other lawyers, Mr. Gursoy was very attentive and had all my paper work done in two weeks and had a court date. I was extremely satisfied with his work and would 100% recommend him.

The Gursoy law firm represented me in a case in immigration court . Mr. Gursoy was very nice and helpful to say the least. He kept me calm and assured me he was doing everything in his power to keep me from getting deported. In the end not only did he prevent my deportation from happening , but I finally got my green card. I cannot recommend a better lawyer for immigration issues.

Gursoy took my money to do a bankruptcy case and did not file the case though his paralegal said it was filed. He then demanded more money after I had already paid him $1,800 to file the case. When I requested he return my money and documents, he refused to return the money and never returned my documents either. He is dishonest and a rip-off. He does this to many other clients and he has a very bad reputation in his Turkish community.
