We have been fortunate to have Joy as our attorney. She is absolutely knowledgeable and caring immigration attorney. Joy has a lot of experience working with LGBT couples in regards to family immigration matters. As an LGBT couple, we had a peace of mind having Joy as our lawyer. She always responded to our inquires within a couple hours, sometimes just minutes! She always encouraged us for the better. I am recommending Joy Alegria Haynes and Haynes Novick Immigration Law Firm to anyone seeking A+ quality representation in immigration matters. Thank you very much Joy!

Joy Haynes was recommended to me and my husband by another immigration attorney to help with my husband's green card application. My husband was in the country on an H1-B visa (through his employer) and we were eager for him to receive permanent residency through marriage.
We were married in December and Joy helped us to file our paperwork literally the day after our wedding. She is quick, efficient and navigates the system easily. Joy made sure we were well-prepared and well-informed each step of the way. She is extremely responsive and communicative. Joy provided us with accurate and helpful coaching in advance of our INS interview, and we felt well-versed and ready the day of. We received my husband's green card just a few weeks later. All in all, Joy made this process (which can seem overwhelming) smooth and easy. She clearly enjoys what she does and is a pro.
I would absolutely recommend Joy to those searching for an immigration attorney.

We retained Joy shortly after the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was overturned by the Supreme Court in 2013. Joy provided us with excellent advice and counsel - she got nothing wrong and everything right. She was very available and empathetic to our anxieties.
I'm pretty good with navigating government systems on my own (I'm not a lawyer), but I did not want to take any chances with CIS. She had insights I would've never had and helped us present a case that sailed through (as it should have). We were successful and my husband is on the road to full citizenship. I can't recommend Joy highly enough. And I'm a pretty tough critic. We are deeply grateful.

Because of the repeal of DOMA, my wife and I wanted to have the help of a lawyer to assist us with our adjustment of status. We called around to a few lawyers - each wanted to charge us just to speak with them and we even had one who found it ridiculously amusing that we wanted to do what we set out to do. It got to the point where when I called each lawyers office I asked first "how much would it cost to get information". When I finally called Joy's office, Mr Haynes just simply said "why would I charge you to just answer your question?"... let's talk he then said. Since we started working with Joy, she has been patient and extremely understanding and just so positive and encouraging. Her assistant Tyler also has been very helpful and thorough. They made our process seem so easy. We supplied information, they supplied the encouragement. Our prep session before our actual interview went so well, my wife and I felt so confident that our green card was going to get approved. Joy was even there before us on our interview date. We went in and we were out in about 15 mins or so with our approval. Joy and her team made a daunting experience seem like a walk in the park. Her experience and expertise is endless. I would absolutely recommend anyone searching for a lawyer to allow Joy and her team to work with you. You will not be disappointed.

I had to apply for a Green Card to be able to live together with my wife in the US.
At the beginning we were really nervous. The vision of being separated was really scary to us. We knew that we need guidance and help.
We’ve decided to work with Joy Allegria Haynes and her team.
In the very first conversation Joy diagnosed our situation, calmed us down and came up with the great plan.
In next few months we were consequently working on it with guidance of Joy.
There were so many details in the process and any time we had questions - Joy and her assistant Tyler were right there, always with the answer.
Joy is not only extremely experienced and professional lawyer, who went to went to one of the premier law schools in the country but on top of that she is wonderful human being who understands people and families of all different backgrounds.
She supported us in every stage of the process.
We went to the final interview very well prepared and confident. After a short interview I got approved and received my green card.
Joy Thank you for everything! We could not have done it without you and your firm.

Haynes Novick Immigration was a godsend. During some of the most stressful months of my life in 2013, both Joy and Jim Tom's superb help and collaboration with my post-DOMA case were detrimental to my life and wellbeing.
Although my case seemed rather complex to me, Haynes Novik Immigration's umbrella of services (immigration law, criminal law, etc) was just the right type of law firm to help me with my new Green Card application.
I highly recommend Joy's services due to her unrelenting dedication to her customers. There's nothing like having a conversation with someone who is capable of making you feel at peace with the fact that you can trust this person. Joy is that kind of person. Be completely honest with your attorney, and leave the rest to Haynes Novick Immigration.

Lucky the person who is able to hire a lawyer who stands out from the crowd in personality, ethics, responsiveness, intelligence, dedication, and a genuine caring for his or her client. Joy Haynes is truly one of those people. From the moment we met, she showed extraordinary care. From that day forward, there was never a concern over her commitment and ability to handle our case. She was like a comfortable security blanket in the midst of a pressured set of circumstances. I recommend her without qualification. She is a gem.

Joy and her team were an absolute delight to work with as we navigated the process of adjusting status due to our same-sex marriage. From our intial meeting, to the moment DOMA was struck down, to the day my husband got his green card, she was our cheerleader and champion. We never felt alone and could not have asked for more support or encouragement, or better guidance in navigating the minefield of immigration. I encourage anyone in a bi-national relationship, whether LGBT or not, to contact Joy for help in the immigration process.

We had the pleasure of working with Joy Haynes regarding our same-sex marriage green card application. Probably the most important and life changing paperwork we've ever prepared thanks to the Supreme Court's decision to strike down DOMA. We thought the process was going to be long, complicated and tedious, but Joy Haynes made it all make sense. Her attention to detail and her personal and approachable professionalism gave us the confidence to feel we were filing a thorough application. And we were successful! We were approved for my British partner's green card in early October, 2013. We started the process in late July when we met Joy and less than three months later had our interview, which we were totally prepared for thanks to Joy. We would recommend Joy Haynes to any LGBT family who are dealing with immigration issues, no matter how simple or complicated the case may be. Joy is professional, compassionate and eager to help LGBT bi-national couples and we can't thank her enough for helping us file a successful marriage based green card application. Thank you, Joy!!!
