4.0 stars 10 totalReview Valerie May
She is not into getting your money, but the ultimate goal of Valerie and her staff at the May Law Group (MLG) is success and your best interests as a client. This top-notch law firm has the unusual fortitude of taking formidable cases other immigration firms or lawyers would rather (politely) turn down. Mine and my wife’s are the instant and best example of the ones to cite. Yesterday, Valerie and her prominent staff members like Rachel, Beth, etc., I took the Oath to become as an American…needless to mention the process of my Green Card and my wife’s attained under Valerie’s meticulous work, research and among others.
The lawyers and paralegals at the MLG in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York City have excellent interpersonal skills and can develop trusting relationships with everyone they work with, particularly the clients. This legal team has undoubtedly excellent analytical skills and is able to readily make sense of, say in unusual cases. They love the art of preparing a legal strategy which usually requires an extensive amount of research in each case; and they are able to find and comprehend pertinent pieces of information. Too, they are able to think logically and make reasonable judgments and assumptions based on information presented. However, in cases that are hopelessly doomed, Valerie and her team can really be creative and are able to think of reasonable solutions when problems and unique situations arise.
The art of legal professionalism and perseverance are not only talked about at the MLG but more importantly practiced and accomplished. Often, cases require many hours of work with heavy research and lots of writing. But the MLG lawyers, paralegals and legal assistant are willing to put in the time it takes to get the job done. Each member of the MLG has excellent writing skills which are used in preparing compelling arguments, explanation of particular situations to questions/requests by the immigration officials, briefs, motions, and other legal documents. I can firmly attest to the fact that the MLG lawyers and paralegals have excellent public speaking skills and are comfortable addressing a courtroom. They can also easily handle speaking in front of other groups.
When all is said and done, if you have an immigration case, complex or otherwise, it is worth asking the MLG to handle it. In essence, travelling all the way from, say California, Texas, Illinois, Connecticut, Washington or Massachusetts to any of the three MLG offices (Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York City) will confidently lead to celebration and allow you to pursue your dream…I was in your shoes. But no more! I will enthusiastically recommend the MLG to anyone who is facing immigration difficulties.

They did an excellent job with our 601 waiver which was approved. Although Valerie was our attorney we interacted mainly with her paralegal, Alison, who was excellent. They are clearly very experienced, exceeded all of our expectations, and I never had trouble getting timely responses to any questions had. Highly recommend.

This law firm is very dedicated and are very professional as well as knowledgeable. They know what to do even when other lawyers tell you your case is hopeless. Allison in the office is simply the best! I would highly recommend this law firm any day! It was a pleasure and success working with them.

My husband and I has been looking for immigration for a long time. Thank God, she is the answer to our prayers. I was hopeless and not expecting that I will be a legal resident in this country. She is very honest, responsive and kept me informed from day one until I got my green card. Atty. May and her staff helped me a lot from waiver approval,I-30 petition and getting my green card. Now, I'm happy and worry-free living with my family. I am highly recommending Atty. Valerie May for your immigration problems.

When all other lawyers said no.. nothing can be done about our case Valerie gave us hope and guided us through the right path.
Allison kept us informed all the way to the end, responded to emails and calls very promptly.
Great job all around. Will recommend May law group to all friends and family.

Im very un happy with her work and as a result we lost the case. She is not responsive . This lawyer took my money (6000$)and did nothing.I would not suggest anyone use this firm.When we first met Ms. May was very sweet, but proceeded to talk badly about another immigration lawyer in the area. Not only was this unprofessional, now I see it was an attempt at getting my money without meeting with the other lawyer. After signing up I worked with different paralegals, each one knew less about my case then the last.

I have been struggling to get my spouse to live legally in the United States since 2004. My spouse needed to file a Waiver to get his U.S. Green Card. I searched for help everywhere and was told that my case was more than likely, impossible to get an approval. I filed a waiver before and it was denied, but I just believed that help was available somewhere. I found May Law Group on the internet and read that they have a high Approval rates for Waiver cases. I spoke directly with Valerie May, and she accepted my case. The staff was friendly and supportive and kept me updated every step of the way. They went above and beyond to ensure that I supplied the right documents and made the right statements. They presented my case to the USCIS in July 2013, and after a few months, I was totally amazed when I received the GREAT news from Allison, at MLG, that the Waiver was APPROVED! I proudly recommend May Law Group to everyone! My family and I, are very happy and grateful.

Valerie May took on our case and felt confident she could handle the problems within the case. One thing we insisted on was being able to get a response to any questions we had in a timely manner. We sent the money she requested to submit with the paperwork to the courts, the paperwork was submitted without the money and denied. The next thing we knew she asked the judge to release her from our case. In our opinion, the money should have been returned to us. She charged us excessive fees to make a photocopy and mail us a document. We spent a great deal of money and got nothing in return. She did not even have the courtesy to tell us we no longer had an attorney. We would not recommend her firm if you want communication pertaining to your case, answers to your questions, or knowing where all the money you hand over is going.

I am so lucky to have found this attorneys. I have worked with several attorneys in the past on my Visa, but none have been as good as Valerie May. I could not believe how quickly she got my Visa approved. She is number one in my book.
