I retained attorney Gus Shihab after my case appeared bleak and my hopes to remain in the United States were rapidly dwindling. Prior to hiring Mr. Shihab, I used another immigration attorney who wasted my time and money. Attorney Shihab was very honest from the first day I met him. He quickly told me that the prior applications that were filed on my behalf were a waste of time and that he would have never advised me to go down the road that I had gone with the previous lawyer. He immediately proposed a very innovative and aggressive course of action which gave me great hopes. After weeks of planning and very careful deliberation on the manner in which my case was drafted, success!! My immigrant visa was approved and I am getting my green card in few months. I want to stress that attorney Shihab had proposed an amazing course of action bypassing many steps that most attorneys would have gone through. The manner of his planning and persistence made it happen for me which was not expected in a short period of time. I am now able to stay with my family thanks to Mr. Shihab.
I cant say enough about Attorney Shihab and his practice, absolutely the very best in this field, we have dealt with a handful of immigration attorneys before we met him 3 years ago, he has been handling our case ever since, first he changed our visa class to H1B in a miraculous way, we were less than a week from the deadline when he started working on our case and he got it done and filed it on time, then he started working on our PERM case, and we had so many issues with the employer, experience and the confusing previous status as investors, Attorney Shihab addressed all of our issues and resolved all of them in the most knowledgeable and professional manner possible, we have just got our PERM certified and we are so much looking forward to working with him on our adjustment of status to permanent residency.
to sum up, don't look anywhere else, this is where knowledge , professionalism, efficiency and honesty is all combined and will serve your case in the best way possible. there is always a way; Attorney Shihab and his team knows the best and shortest way for you.
best wishes with your case.
I hired The Law Firm of Shihab for my H-1B Visa in 2013, and the got it approved smoothly. I was satisfied with their services for my H-1B visa, When I decided to apply for a green card through my employer, my situation was a little complicated. I have a bachelor degree with five years experience which I was confused whether to apply using EB3 just as regular cases or take the risk and the advantage and use EB2 and use the five years experience. I made online search to compare the two ways and it ended up that to apply using EB2, it will need a highly experienced immigration lawyer to get it approved as it will be risky. That is why I chose to hire Mr. Shihab to work on my case. I called Mr. Shihab and explained my case to him and he assured that I should apply using EB2 and get the advantage of the five years experience and get my green card faster. He assured he can do it and was aggressive about my case. Mr. shihab got the my I-140 approved smoothly in just five days using premium processing without getting any request for evidences. Now, I am waiting for my I-485 to get the green card. I want to say this law firm is highly professional and experienced. If you are reading this review now, so most probably you are still doing your search about your case, just like the same I was doing before hiring Mr. Shihab. So, stop you search now and contact The Law Firm of Shihab to discuss your case with them, and you will be pleased with their services. I wish you all the best out there in your immigration cases.
I must say this is excellent Attorney firm to work with. They will reply your each and every question. I really admire their professional way of working. I highly recommend this Company for any visa/Green Card matters. I got my labor and I-140 approved through them without any issues. Got my I-140 in just 2 days .I am thankful for their skills and wishing them all the best for their future cases.
I hired attorney Gus Shihab after meeting a local lawyer whom I had retained. My case was complex and I felt uneasy with the other lawyer who did not give me confidence. But when I met attorney Gus Shihab, I immediately felt comfortable with him. He appeared to have a high degree of in-depth experience. He assured me that my case will be approved if we follow few steps. Some of the solutions he suggested were very innovative. I was impressed with the level of personal care, attention to details and above all, his keen understanding of the workings of the immigration system and how the government thinks. He prepared my case very well and spend a lot of time preparing me for the upcoming interview. With his experience and attention to details, my case was presented with the highest possible levels of skill and care. During my interview, the officer expressed his surprise as to the level of preparedness and approved my case despite the many wrinkles it had. Thanks to attorney Gus Shihab. I found him to be very personable, kind, attentive to my needs and extremely knowledgeable and skillful. I highly recommend him.
I've worked with lawyers before. There is none who is more attentive and quick to respond. Gus worked with me through my work visa process. Sometimes, I felt like I was the only client. Then I realized there are hundreds more. He answered my emails and carefully comforted me over the telephone about each and every query. Usually you will never hear from lawyers after the first call, its only their assistants who respond. Gus is different. He genuinely cares about his clients and takes personal interest in their needs. He is also honest in that he will not sugarcoat his answers. If you don't stand a chance in a case, he will tell you. We need not only more lawyers, but more human beings like Gus Shihab. I haven't met him personally, yet speak such things about him. You can imagine what work ethic he possesses. May his firm prosper!
I would strongly recommend it Shihab Association for great service and always great response. I've been customer for them 2 times Gus Shihab and he's members there were always there for me if I had any question I was always more than welcome to come by or call at anytime again it's a great place to work when your immigration status.

Mr Shihab and his law firm stuff made my dream come true; they helped me overcome my worries and always, always assured me what everything would be alright.
After being misrepresented by my first law firm, which got me in removal proceedings with USCIS court, I was completely let down by second law firm, which led into deeper troubles and investigation. My married life was much on the ‘rocky’ side too. I had no hope and my future in US was dimmed by all this suffering. One of my friends recommended me to seek help at Mr. Shahab’s firm.
After my first meeting with Mr. Shihab I had clear understanding of my case and we had solid plan to get me out of trouble and on the right path. Attorney Shihab stayed with me on that journey and kept me informed of all steps and procedures which were necessary to steer me clear out of distress. He stayed on top of every request from USCIS and never being late with answer. All my paper work was always submitted on time and he did all things possible to expedite my case in court. Four years later I got my “Green card” and I’m looking forward to get my citizenship.
If you are reading questions what people posted on immigration forums and compare them to your case and still think what your case is more complicated. If lawyer helplessly giving you misleading answers. If law firm, you had been represented by, drops you in removal proceedings right after court day. If you have no hope and your dreams of the future is shattered – Mr. Shihab’s firm is your sanctuary, place where you would be helped by most talented lawyers and stuff in the country.

Mr. Shihab and his team are amazing. They got my Case I-485; (Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status through marriage) approved in less than 90 days from the day of my application received by USCIS. During my case processing period Mr. Shihab and his team were extremely responsive towards my inquiries or questions. Even at mid night I got his email answering my concern/question numerous times. I would highly recommend immigration law firm “Shihab & Associates” for any immigration related issues.

I have worked with Shihab and Associates for the last 6 months or so and I have been impressed by their handling of my green card application process. They are an extremely professional firm that has great customer care. They were available to answer all my questions and always treated me with respect. Gus is a wonderful and charming lawyer who is well versed with the immigration process. I am also glad to have worked with Mary Lou who directly handled all the required paperwork and provided feedback whenever I needed it. They have such a great team at their downtown Columbus Ohio office. Also not forgetting Miriam at the front desk who takes calls with such cheerfulness. They made me feel very special.
I highly record Gus and his firm for any immigration issues. Thanks Gus for everything!
