My wife and I hired Shanna Elaise Forskin-Stanton 6 months ago to help us with our immigration process and it was smooth sailing from day one. Shanna is very personable, genuine, and hands on. She walked us through the whole green card process with no detail left behind, she is very thorough. Shanna is very kind and always ready to provide all the information you need with the best advice. I highly recommend working with her.

Shana made what could have been an incredibly stressful process, an entirely pleasurable experience. My husband and I are extremely grateful for her attention to detail, responsiveness, efficiency and professional manner of working that led us to a successful green card application far quicker than we had anticipated. We could not have asked for a more personable or professional lawyer and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Shana was recommended to us by a friend of a friend who had employed here services recently. From the very first meeting, Shana worked to make us feel comfortable and informed every step of the way. She was very specific in what we needed to provide and was very professional, which resulted in the process being seamless and lightning fast. The requirements she has for documentation that you need to provide may seem daunting at first but trust in her experience as it will likely lead to successful results.

Shanna provided top-notch, highly professional, and on-the-mark responsive advice, counsel, and guidance to my wife and me in connection with our petitions for my wife's "green card." Shanna was very prompt, thorough, knowledgeable, and considerate in everything that she did for us. We are both very satisfied with her professional competence and with her client-oriented, personal performance.
Shanna is on track to a great career as a very capable and responsive lawyer, and we would recommend her to other potential clients.

We've been working with Shanna since 2011 to help remove the conditional status from my husband's permanent resident card. Shanna was very helpful answering questions, getting all the forms we required. The process went much faster than anticipated. We would definitely work with her again for our immigration needs.

I’ve been working with Shanna for about a year now on my Adjustment of Status to become a Permanent Resident (Green Card holder). Shanna was well informed on processes and diligent on any paperwork I submitted. She proactively followed up with USCIS numerous times for updates until my case was settled. She responds to my messages within a couple of hours and was very patient and positive. I highly recommend working with her.

My husband and I hired Shanna to handle my immigration case. I required an Adjustment of Status through Marriage, after being on an H1B Visa for three years. From the moment we met her, Shanna showed us she was extremely familiar with similar cases; she informed us about every single step involved in the process from the start. She was easy to reach whenever we had a question, and always kept us informed; she also prepared us for our interview with the immigration authorities. The process was completed in a timely manner and we are completely satisfied with her service as our lawyer. We would highly recommend her.

I received my green card very recently and it took only a little more than 3 months.
Shanna is professional, knowledgeable, responsive & accurate. She prepared all of my documents and checked them all very carefully. I felt very comfortable with her during my immigration process even though I didn't have some of the documents that are common. Shanna handled everything so easily. She knew the way perfectly and explained everything to me with care and kindness.
I am so satisfied with her work and really appreciate her expertise and diligence.

I started working with Shanna Stanton about 3 years ago and I wasn't dissapointed. She helped me with the green card application and accompanied me to the interview.

My husband (US citizen) and me (F-1 visa holder) applied for my green card on May 2012. We had a consultation with Shanna to go over the application process and expectations. She took the time to revise our forms and documents, and organized our application. At all times she was very professional, efficient and knowledgeable on the green card process. While the application was in process I contacted her several times to go over my paperwork. working permit and advance parole notices. She responded immediately and was always very professional. I got my green card without delays or problems on September 2012. I already recommended Shanna to 2 of my closest friends. She is an excellent lawyer and I recommend her without hesitations.

I looked around and spoke with several different lawyers to help in the process of getting my wife a green-card. She was coming from China and I just didn't want to take the chance and do it myself but wanted to let a professional do the job and therefore have it done correctly the first time. I was given a referral to use the firm of Gonzales and Tiagha and I am very glad I did as from the very first meeting I felt extremely comfortable with Shanna Stanton and Peter Gonzales.
Shanna was always very professional and courteous and responded to my emails or phone calls in a very timely matter. At no time during the process did I feel as if I was being ignored or put on the back burner. She always took the time to fully explain the answers to any questions I had regarding the process, the status of the case etc.
She also took the time to lay out the entire process and what we could expect to happen and when those things should happen if there were no problems.
She also explained what our options were in case we did run into trouble during the process and just generally made me feel relaxed and confident during what could have been a very trying time in my and my wife's life.
Shanna and the firm of Gonzales and Tiagha did a great job and I have no problem at all in giving her the highest marks possible in this review. I also have no problem in saying that by choosing Shanna to help you that you have made a wise decision and will not come to regret it!

When I decided that I was going to start my HR Consulting business one year ago, Shanna Stanton contacted me to get some preliminary information. She was extremely thorough and knowledgeable on the process and her follow up is par excellent. Each time that I have interacted with Mrs. Stanton, I receive the same level of professionalism which is the reason that I trust all of my business legal affairs and paperwork to Shanna and Gonzalez Tiagha. I would refer her again and again

When Peter moved on to bigger and better things near the end of our case, and left us in Shanna's hands, my wife and I were a little nervous at first. Shanna proved to be very patient and an excellent lawyer. When we found out at the interview that the i693 was not filled out properly, Shanna went out of her way to hand deliver the corrected form the next morning. We received the approval in the mail two days later. We couldn't have been happier.

I don't usually give a 100% to anyone in terms of a review, but in this case it is warranted. The whole process of getting our green card was enjoyable and easy with this firm and Shanna from day one. We didn't even retain them at first and they were still kind to assist us. They deserved our business, and they earned it! We have a young baby and really were afraid that we would be unable to keep my husband in the country for a few reasons, but in the end we worked it all out and the firm was kind to assist in all of our inquiries and helped us to change our status from B-2 Visa to Green card!!! THANK YOU SHANNA. I have already helped Shanna retain another client from France (a friend) and I would tell others to use her and this firm as well.

Gonzales & Tiagga was an amazing find after a disasterous first attempt in retaining a lawyer to assist my then fiancé in entering the U.S. properly. Shanna Stanton throughout the whole process was nothing less than a Professional. She is Informative and Responsive to all of our questions and worries. She was present always, and did an excellent job above and beyond our expectations... Thanks Shanna

Shanna had done great job specially when I received RFE. She prepared my all RFE documents very well to make sure that I will get approval.

My case was a special visa, it took years to complete and in the whole process Shanna along with Peter Gonzales kept me well informed and also helped me with my emotional side.
I highly recommend their services. They are the best in the area.

Shanna per se was very interactive throughout the long drawn Green Card process. I found her patient and attentive. When things needed to be done quickly she was there for me and my wife.
As a practice Gonzalez and Tiagha kept up their end of the bargain, were polite to my employer and my staff while being helpful and patient with my wife and myself.

Shanna helped us with my husband's green card application process, and we couldn't have been happier with the advice and assistance we received.

I'm an MBA prospect, with a sensitive nationality, and I entered the country on a student visa. I decided later on to pursue a spouse-based application for permanent residency. I started looking around for a competent immigration lawyer to advise me of the more complicated aspics of immigration law. After few unsatisfying encounters with other lawyers, I was very fortunate to land upon the Gonzales & Tiagha team. Ms. Stanton was fantastic. She advised, prepared and processed my green card application. It was a stress free process.
I appreciate the fact that the Gonzales & Tiagha team were very welcoming, accessible, and responsive, but most importantly that they were flexible with my payment installments. They also advised me to take a different step witch secured me a US green card that's valid for a longer period of what I've initially was asking for! I'm extremely satisfied.
Without any hesitation, they're my go-to for any legal issue, highly recommended.

Mrs Stanton advised, prepared and processed my Citizenship application and prep'd me for my interview. My case was not straight forward and the additional complexity required a knowledgeable professional and that's exactly what I found in her.
As Senior Corporate Executive, I appreciate the fact that Mrs Stanton is very accessible, very responsive and well organized. I think it is safe to say that she will provide you with a good all around service that gives you peace of mind leaving none of your questions unanswered.
It is very pleasant to communicate with her and all I am left with is to say "thank you" and recommend her highly!
