  • Margaret D. Stock

    Jan and I have worked together on several matters over the years. I have been highly impressed with her work ethic; she is tireless in serving her clients. Jan is particularly worth hiring if you need assistance with consular processing issues; she is the only attorney in the US who has a comprehensive and encyclopedic knowledge of all US consulates. Jan is also known for her devotion to the complexities of non-immigrant and immigrant visas for health care professionals.
