5.0 stars 70 totalReview Jonathan Grode
Jonathan Grode provided excellent service to us when we applied for a marriage-based green card. My wife had a long and complicated visa history over the eight years she had been in the United States. Jonathan helped us organize our voluminous materials in an efficient manner. He reviewed all of our documents. He talked with us over the phone, met with us in person, and responded to our many emails. He shepherded us through every step of the process, personally (not only delegating to his associates, although his associates were also terrific). He even attended our interview as the final step.
Jonathan was a pleasure to work with. He is as affable and approachable as he is professional and diligent. I imagine he would be the same for any client lucky enough to work with Jonathan. I give my strongest recommendation to Jonathan and would not hesitate to hire him for any immigration matter. My wife and I could not be happier with his service and the outcome.
Jonathan is the best of the best! He worked on my case over 3 years and consistently and repeatedly went over and above his job role to ensure my success. His knowledge is par excellence, he knows every bit of the mechanics of that confounding immigration book. You need a lawyer that's not just educated in his field, but also committed to deal with the demanding asks of the immigration process. ALWAYS search for Jonathan if you have a case that needs immigration help. You want to ensure you're in safe, experienced hands. And that is Jonathan. Thank you my friend!
My Green Card has been finally approved! It might sound like nothing special, but if you wonder why I start with this statement, let me tell you: I'm Italian, got deported on Oct 7, 2012. I did just move from Los Angeles to Orlando 40 days earlier to start my family with my (at the time) girlfriend and her 13yo daughter. I wasn't allowed in the US for 5 years for a "technicality" with my visa, so we were desperate, lost, not knowing what to do with our lives! Several immigration lawyers had declined to take our case, others asked an outrageous fee, no one believed that it would be possible for me to come back in the US anytime before five years. Now, after 3 years and 3 months (although less, since we decided to hire Jonathan), because of Jonathan's efforts, professionalism and dedication, we are finally at the end of this long, almost impossible, immigration process!
Jonathan has always been so kind, empathic and supportive, checking on us regularly, even before we decided to hire him!
To top it off, he even got me a six weeks Port Parole, last year, so that we could spend our first Christmas all together in the US! That was something really special, as they normally don't give more than 3-4 days, and just in case of a death in the family. Jonathan was able to speak to the Chief who deported me, and convinced him that I needed to go back, just for a few weeks, in order to take care of my step-daughter, while my (now) wife was out of the country for work.
We now consider Jonathan a true friend. He was the only lawyer who really believed in us and made this immigration process go through way ahead of time! I don't know how long it would have really taken without his dedication and support, if anything was possible at all. It really meant a lot to us, giving us the strength and hope to go ahead. I can honestly say that, if it wasn't for him, regardless of how much we love each other, my wife and I wouldn't probably be still together! He made us believe that it was possible, that we could have had our life together back, and he was right!
I couldn't recommending him enough. If you have an immigration need, I'm confident you won't find anybody else as human, kind and supportive, as him!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, J!
The service was excellent from all points of view:
REALLY competent and thorough in solving my case;
the service was extremely fast;
always responded to my questions within a few hours, even late at night.
And most importantly: I got my green card!
Compared to friends' experiences with other immigration lawyers and compared to my previous experiences with other lawyers in general, I feel I got very lucky with him and the Firm.
Highly recommended to anyone who needs to deal with immigration issues; I will certainly contact him again in case a friend of mine or I need other immigration services.
I recently hired Jonathan as my immigration lawyer to apply for an O1 Visa. Having heard a number of horror stories pertaining to the O1 process from friends and other applicants I was a little nervous about the procedure. But 4 months later, I am an approved applicant with my hardcopy in the mail. Jonathan and his team were absolutely outstanding. Efficient, timely, professional and a true expert of the field are just a few of the many positive attributes I would appoint to Jonathan's work ethic. Being someone with not a lot of experience in this realm, Jonathan was extremely helpful and able to provide clear explanations of processes and steps within the procedure that I didn't understand. I would highly recommend his services to any artist or YouTuber looking to apply for an O1 Visa. It truly was an interaction and experience that exceeded all expectations.
We hired Jonathan to help us in the process of getting a green card through a marriage.
We were hesitant to hire a lawyer for the process but we are very happy that we did. He and his team always answered questions promptly which gave us peace of mind and simplified navigating the paperwork.
He is a very nice guy who made us feel really comfortable during the whole process, especially at the immigration interview.
We highly recommend him to anyone looking for advice or help in an immigration process.
Jonathan is an amazing, patient, and compassionate immigration attorney that I cannot recommend enough. I experienced issues regarding F-1 CPT as I was applying for an OPT. Jonathan was there every step of the way to help find real solutions to the problem at hand. His knowledge of immigration laws, and his commitment to finding actionable answers truly helped. My university had recommended resources for students, but they all failed in comparison to Jonathan. When you talk with Jonathan, you can feel that he really has your true interests at heart, and will go above and beyond to help you during such stressful times. He is friendly, professional, and helps you understand the law and how to work with it. I recommend Jonathan's services to any and all seeking help in this area. Don't know what I'd do without him!!
Jonathan Grode was always available to answer any questions that I had, as were his staff and I felt that by the end I was dealing with a friend as opposed to a lawyer.
I definitely recommend Jonathan Grode, he takes interest in your case, he updates you, lets you know what the situation is and tells you what the next step is. He is a lawyer you can trust.
Thanks again Jonathan!!!!!!
I had submitted by original O-1 visa application separately but when I was returned with a RFE, I turned to Jonathan for help. He very promptly reviewed my documents and offered such great advice to address the concerns in the RFE. While preparing for the response, Jonathan was attentive throughout and I was able to submit my response way before the deadline and, perhaps most tellingly, the eventual approval of my O-1 visa.
Jonathan knows immigration procedures like the back of his hand; he can provide expert guidance that is tailored to your case-specific background & skills, and he gives only his best, and no less, for each case.
Jonathan is an exceptional immigration attorney that recently guided me through a complex immigration case. From the initial point of contact, Jonathan promptly took the lead and developed a plan of action that enabled me to gain temporary legal immigration status while starting the process to acquire permanent residency.
Jonathan is a true professional, having provided expert guidance throughout the entire process. His expertise, integrity, reliability and commitment to clients is both commendable and impressive and allows him to deliver superior results. Likewise, Jonathan is very personable, approachable and maintains good relationships with the various immigration officials I came into contact with. Anytime I had a question Jonathan has always been available to me, even on holidays, weekends and weeknights. He took the time to thoroughly explain every step throughout the process and what was to be expected. I was well prepared for the interview.
Additionally, not only is Jonathan a great lawyer but he has a great team. The preparation, detail and attention that went into my case by Jonathan and his staff was top-quality service and very personal in nature.
It has been a pleasure working with Jonathan and his team and I feel truly lucky to have found him. Jonathan made a complicated process seamless and I strongly recommend him as an immigration attorney.
