Its my pleasure to write a review for Ms. Amy Novick. I had a major immigration problem in the airport when I came to the US for the second time from India. I was given a stay of one month in the US from the airport authorities. My girl friend was a US citizen but we did not know how to proceed with the case. We consulted numerous lawyers. Most of them asked us to go back to India and file papers from there. We were very confused and worried. We did not know how to tackle this situation. We heard good things about Ms. Amy from online searches. The office was kind enough to schedule an emergency appointment with her. Though we spent more than hour discussing about our case, she still charged us for one hour. This is in contrast to some lawyers who could not even spare us anytime to discuss the case and were charging for just a call on the phone. When we met her for the first time, she was very thorough with the immigration laws. She did not give us any false hopes or promises. She treated my girlfriend as her own daughter and advised our family what she would do if she was in our place instead. She did an outstanding job from the very beginning to the end of the case. We are getting married soon and this is happening mostly because of Ms. Novick.
I wanted to write, and thank you for all your help. Starting from the initial advice, to taking us through the process, your guidance has brought us to this happy conclusion. We are both thrilled, as is the whole family.
Thank you, very very much.
Amy is a professional and very competent immigration lawyer with a pleasant personality. She has a particular knowledge of the complications of persons employed at international organizations such as the World Bank and provided me with a first class service.
Amy Novick was advising us on our Adjustment of Status. Her valuable legal advice, her amazing diligence, her knowledge and contacts as well as her ongoing tracking of the status of application were crucial for the successful acceptance of our application. Thank you, Amy!
I've worked with Amy on two matters. The first was a petition for adjustment of status for my husband. It was relatively straightforward, but it was obviously of the utmost importance to us, and I (myself an attorney) was nervous. Amy's calm competence did wonders for my state of mind. She was highly responsive and addressed all of our questions. The insights she shared ensured that we sailed smoothly through the process. The second matter was a complex H-1B visa application for the Executive Director of a nonprofit organization. I am the President of the Board, and as soon as the issue came up, I knew that we would have to take it to Amy. She was terrific. She did the research needed to figure out how to best position our application, and she was a source of good advice throughout. I have no doubt that our petition was granted because of her fine work. I have already recommended her to others, and I will continue to do so.
I met with Amy Novick after having met with three other experienced immigration lawyers. She was by far the most competent and knowleadgable. She took care of my EB 1-1 extraordinary ability case within three months while being extremely available, especially on email, and very professional. It was not an easy case, but she made it look like a slam-dunk. She also provided sound advice on my nonimmigrant visa status, which was expiring shortly after I retained her.
Let’s put it this way: I cannot imagine recommending anyone else for immigration-related work.
I worked with Amy for a consultation on an immigration case for my wife. I had previously met with another attorney as well as done a good deal of research on the internet.
Amy really seemed to know her stuff - she answered our questions crisply and (seemingly, based on my own research) correctly. She put our minds at ease and did not seem intent into scaring us into signing up for unnecessary additional business. At the same time, she was very clear on points where we needed to be attentive and careful as we go forward. She was also helpful in followup queries.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Amy to others. I am now planning to use her firm for some separate professional matters, which is as strong an endorsement as I can make.
I am a physician and have hired Amy several times to deal with my immigration issues. She has always delivered. She has successfully filed for my O-1 visa on several occasions, and also for my HHS waiver. She is currently filing for my Green Card and that of my wife. She is very knowledgeable, professional and I would recommend her very enthusiastically. If I ever have any immigration issues or if my friends or family ever need an excellent immigration attorney, Amy is the person I would go to! As a physician, academic and professor, I deal constantly with professionals in a variety of fields. Amy is the consummate professional. She is honest, competent, and delivers!
I have referred a number of complex legal matters to Amy, primarily EB1-1 petitions. This type of case is very challenging in light of recent USCIS policy guidance but Amy has done a masterful job securing approvals. She is responsive, thorough and creative. I recommend her highly.
Amy helped me with my student and exchange visa questions. She was extremely knowledgeable and was able to resolve all my questions promptly. She went above and beyond what was required to help me.
Navigating all the issues and paperwork involved with visas can be daunting, but Amy always made me feel comfortable and helped allay a lot of my worries and fears. She never made me feel rushed or like "just another immigration client".
I will definitely be using Amy's services in the future.
I feel compelled to post this review of the truly outstanding job Amy Novick did recently in aiding me to obtain my EB11. I very much appreciated the way in which she assisted me in navigating the process, making it as easy as possible given the difficulty of the task. Her knowledge of the regulations and of the kind of information that would be most helpful to the decision makers in my case was invaluable during the process. Needless to say, the result -- obtaining my Extraordinary Visa so soon after submission -- was far better than anything I could have reasonably expected.
