Ms. Pederson is a super smart attorney, she knows everything about immigration! She is very dedicated and passionate to help. She always answered my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. I very much appreciate her help with our adjustment of status (green card) application that was stuck for a long time. It took her a short time to get things moving again and get the application approved. it was like magic! I felt helpless dealing with a pending application for a long time, but I felt empowered when I talked to her and got her help. She is a true life saver. I highly recommend her for anyone; especially physicians who need help with immigration.

I came across Jan as a trainee at an immigration seminar. Well informed and resourceful I kept in touch with her over some years.
I got some real help from her when I had difficulties with my employer who was ill informed and very hostile to me. Very rightly based on her advise I tried to keep my J waiver job. However eventually this was not possible and my employer was hell bent on destroying my physician career.
I promptly contacted Jan and she took my case under her wings and very deftly, swiftly maneuvered around to get me out of their clutches. This took a lot of effort , ingenuity , tactfulness and experience with the right kind of knowledge co ordinating with a no of people.The strategy evolved with every new event. We have filed for the j waiver transfer and await the outcome. Whatever might be the result , I am certain that if it had not been for her passion and deep interest in my case , the outcome might have been very damaging due to a destructive employer.
It is not the money, I think that motivates her but a deep sense of passion to be your true advocate.Like physicians most lawyers are not good at giving preventive advise but she will share with you ways to keep your j waiver job based on her extensive experience.
Like others I got response from her late evenings and sometimes even weekends.Very approachable.
Unlike most well known attorneys from big firms who will show up only to market and get your business , you can expect her to be involved at every step of the process. The above is based on my true experience and I recommend her without reservation. I am glad to have found her services and my advocate.

For me Jane Pederson is not only a wonderful lawyer but also a great person. My wife and I are very lucky because she took our case in 2013 in a very difficult moment for us when we were forced to remain in the US after receiving threats from our government due our posture as human rights lawyers as well as due our journalist articles. I do not have any doubt that she saved us. A friend recommended me her as the best immigration lawyer in this country, and Ms. Pederson showed us that she is a wise in immigration legal issues and is more than prepared to solve big challenges using her wide knowledge and experience.

Jan Pederson went above and beyond the call of duty for our family. She is by far the best immigration lawyer I have worked with and is also highly respected in the law community amongst her peers.

Ms Pederson is an excellent lawyer. Her firm is professional, very trustworthy and knowledgable.
She helped us when many other lawyers did not seem to have any hope of a good solution. She was highly recommended by a friend and we have to state that she is truly the best!

Jan has helped me steer through the perilous waters of the immigration ocean over the last 12 years starting with the O-1 visa and physician Conrad 30 J-waiver process followed by H1B filings, LPR filing and Naturalization. Over the years, her superlative judgment and fantastic instincts have helped me navigate through the maze and complexities of the process to truly arrive in the land of the free - the United States. My family and I remain indebted to her - she is truly the best of the best! I could write many pages on her stellar abilities, but the ones that stand out about her are: 1) her can-do attitude, 2) quickly overcoming USCIS errors, 3) always being available by phone, text or email, and 4) her amazing attention to detail and advocacy on my behalf. I could go on and on, but words are not enough to describe her abilities. May God bless her and her devoted staff!

If you have a case that is next to impossible. See Jan Pederson.
This is the advice that was given to me by the most renowned immigration lawyers in Baltimore and DC. She is the only one who can save you. When I lost my job due to unfair reasons of my employer. Jan went out of the way to help me. She was there like what my family and
Did the impossible and got me my visa approved.
I can tell you most of the lawyers had told me that my case is impossible and were even scared to take up my case. They had actually told me they felt sorry for my situation. But could not help me. They told me they knew I was wronged but the immigration laws on J-1 waiver flex spots were not written. She even helped me get the Waiver approved from the department told health at my current employment. They knew her well and respected her. I did not have a place to stay and jan even offered to accommodate me at her place. I remember it was the sandy storm last year and jan was sick. Yet she called me up hearing the urgency of my situation and took up my case. She even helped me get my new job and made sure they help me with my visa. This is a very true story. J- 1 visa waiver transfers are possible even if it is a flex spot. But make sure you have a very experienced immigration lawyer like jan. so you don't have to live in fear or take the unfair ways of your employer. Talk to jan.
I even had one of the presidents of the immigration lawyers tell me!!
Well of course it was jan.
She truly is the best. She is the only lawyer who has answered every email or call of mine. I can go in and on as my situation was really bad. !! She. Is very well respected and everyone I applied knew jan. it is true she also helped me get my current employment. More importantly she is very reasonable. I don't think it's the money that drives her it's the challenge and the need to help others in need. I had no one in this country and could my see my family. She did what I think my family would have down but no other lawyer would. Be there for me day and night. I can only thank god for making me meet jan.

If there is one word I have to describe Ms. Pederson then it would be 'Super'. She and her office have been extremely professional, knowledgeable and courteous. She did not only help me with my immigration situation but also informed me about a special program called 'MAVNI' or Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) program, a test that permits the enlistment of certain legal aliens into the U.S. Army which was a very valuable piece of information for myself. She has answered my phone calls even after hours without any hesitation and actually responded to my 'emergency emails' even on a weekend and I think this differentiates her for any other Immigration Attorneys. I would recommend her without any second thoughts as I do think that there are very few people with that level of integrity and sincerity that you can trust. Thank you Jan and the entire office staff for helping me and many others like me! Truly a 'Super Lawyer'!

Jan Pederson is simply superb both in terms of professional expertise and personal attention to clients’ needs. I found Jan on Avvo based on client and peer reviews, as I was in search of an immigration attorney who excelled in cases of H1B visa and consular processing. I met with Jan feeling quite stressed, thinking that I could be in deep trouble. Within minutes, Jan made me feel like I have nothing to worry about. Her vast knowledge of immigration law and years of valuable experience in the industry shine through every aspect of her business. She is well-connected, persistent and does not take “no” for an answer. After briefly talking with her, you know how determined of a person she is and feel confident that she will fight for you until the very end. Coming from a culture where personal trust is as important as trust in professional expertise, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jan provides you with that extra personal touch, something that I found lacking in the lawyers whom I had worked with before. She is extremely approachable as opposed to many others in the industry, and her staff is also very nice to clients. I would recommend Jan to anybody who is looking for expert advice in immigration matters, as Jan will not only know the best way to resolve your issue, but she will also make you feel that you are in the best hands that you could possibly be in.
