Just when me and my family thought there was no hope on our drive back from Philadelphia, I received a phone call from a law office that wanted to take my case. Im thankful to god that I went, because that is how I met this wonderful law firm. It was a tough fight, but through their determination and will to fight, they won , when no one believed it could be done. Thank you John for your hard work. Well done
John is a nice & friendly person. He accompanied me & my wife to our Naturalization interview and has been supportive through the entire process, addressing our concerns. I would definitely seek John's help as needed in future and also recommend others to seek his advice.
John is an awesome attorney, very knowledgeable and precise. He has great team as well. Every one of them knows what they are dealing with and give the utmost care to every small thing. He has documented my case in such a great way that although my case is a bit complicated I got my GC in exactly 6 months. Thanks to John, Lynda, Katelyn and all the team for all their services. Everyone is scared off the fees when hiring an attorney, but John has simple fee and payment structure and there is no hidden fees popping up every now and then and frustrates the client. Without a thought I would definitely recommend their service for any complicated immigration cases.
John and his staff helped us with an immigrations nightmare that with his knowledge and patience got us through it smoothly and left us with a feeling that hour money had been well invested in his firm.
It was a case that was declined the first round by immigrations.
I contacted John for my naturalization process as I had some trouble with it. To be honest,this was my first time dealing with an attorney and I was clueless and upset as I had not much knowledge. John went above and beyond his means and helped me with the process. John is great to work with, very responsive as well as very knowledgeable about immigration law and the process. He reviewed all my documentation, prepared all the paperworks and was always there to answer all my questions and concern. He was confident about the case even when we had some hard time and that helped me to keep a positive outlook and yes it paid off. I got naturalized yesterday and now I'm an American citizen :) If not for John the path would have been hard .
I would definitely recommend John to anyone looking out there for a knowledgable ,honest and trustworthy immigration attorney. Through the process I constantly felt his support on the personal level. We were successful, and I am truly grateful! Thank you for all your help.
I cannot say enough about the great assistance we received. The best part about our experience is not just the assistance or the work accomplished but the ability of John to calm our fears. After talking with him for the first time our minds were at ease. We felt a priceless confidence that in the end everything would work out.
John knew the law and was able to take care of the problems I was facing
Very professional when you meet them in person
E-mails are returned in a reasonable amount of time
Sometimes I felt that if I did not call to ask about my case that it just sat collecting dust
When I called, about 50% of the time I would not get a call back. (not due to lawyer but I think because of the answering service)
The answering service could not understand me half of the time, and each time I called I had to repeat myself several times
There was a lot of miscommunication between staff and me I think because of language/ pronunciation issues. That scared me that mistakes in my case might occur but John looks over everything and double checks it.
Overall: Highly recommend this lawyer despite some minor problems.
Mr. Vandenberg helped us with the citizenship application for my father. He provided us with excellent guidance and advise. My father's case was approved in a timely fashion mainly due to his input and deligence. John is a curtious, responsive and trustworthy lawyer. I recommend him without any reservation.
Our family is so blessed having a lawyer as good as Mr. Vandenberg. He is always concern with our own good when considering options for our case. He is trustworthy. He is also prompt in answering our emails. Communication line is always open. He is very knowledgeable in immigration field. We really appreciate his help & kindness.
I was very pleased with John Vandenberg's knowledge of the complex immigration process and his responsive and dedicated manner. I wrote him the following thank-you note.
Dear Mr. Vandenberg,
Thank you so much for all your hard work in obtaining M’s visa. There were so many times over the past four and a half years that I have felt close to giving up, but I knew that you would not stop working until M was home.
These years have been exceedingly difficult but it made it easier to know that I had a competent and dedicated attorney.
Thank you so much for reuniting my family.
