I used Ms. Riedmiller for immigration and citizenship services for a period of 2 years. In my opinion, as counsel, she was disorganized, uninformed, and gave no value-added information or guidance on my case that I could not have garnered from the internet. I also consider her handling of legal forms, case notes, and billing/invoicing sloppy and disorganized. I often had to edit her work. She refused, twice, to move forward on my citizenship application, claiming adamantly that there were still "problems" with the application which needed to be addressed. At this point I stopped going to her.
I ended up consulting with another immigration attorney for 1 hour, and after looking at my case, that attorney gave his opinion that I did not need legal representation for my citizenship application. I followed his advice, submitted the application on my own, and became a citizen about six months later. None of the said "problems" ever materialized.
I strongly recommend that you do not use Ms. Riedmiller as your immigration lawyer.

I had the honor of interning in the Law Offices of Miriam Riedmiller the summer of 2008. I was extremely impressed with her thoroughness, her dedication (often working for her clients well past office hours), and her heart for immigrants. Thanks to her, I am now an immigration attorney representing clients before the Chicago, IL Federal Immigration Courts and United States Citizen and Immigration Services, and I will always carry with me the high work ethics that I learned at the Law Offices of Miriam Riedmiller.

Yes, I can say that I felt very comfortable working with the Immigration Law Firm of Miriam B. Riedmiller. I'm originally from Germany, and the whole process ran very smoothly and I would recommend Ms. Riedmiller to anybody who wants to immigrate to USA.

Atty Riedmiller charged me for services which were not agreed upon. She cashed my check after verbally agreeing to wait until I received my funds. She probably wrote in her own "praises." Pretty much a disgrace to the Filipino-American community. Avoid at all costs.

Ms Riedmiller is a kind, knowledgeable professional who is excellent in the immigration area. She worked closely with my family and me--in person, by phone, and by e-mail--and was able to successfully solve a number of problems in my family's case, including medical-related issues. We are very grateful to her. She was pro-active in anticipating and overcoming complicated issues and kept us well-informed at all times. As a family member happily said, "Everything she said would happen happened." I am an attorney myself, but, prior to my family's working with her, I had almost no exposure to immigration law. I feel that I have learned a lot from her both professionally and personally.

I worked with Ms. Riedmiller back in 2008 through the Washington Center Program while as an undergrad and still remain in touch with her today as I prepare to take my bar. To this day, she is one of the few immigration attorneys I have grown to know that has a very strong knowledge of complex immigration law issues, with over 15 years of experience. Not only does she know her field of work but she knows how to speak with her clients, making them understand this complex process. She has a great sense of professional responsibility, judgment, and integrity. She truly cares and gives her best to each individual that walks through her door, clients and interns alike. Based on this experience, I referred a family member to approach Ms. Riedmiller concerning her case.

The first couple of lawyers I contacted only talked on the phone whilst the other one was through his website. A friend recommended Miriam and unlike other lawyers where you would feel like you are being interrogated, meeting with Miriam is just like talking to a friend. She made me feel at ease which in turn helped me tell her all the details of my visa issues.
She provided all possible options to my needs and kept me updated every step of the way. Not many get the chance to talk to their lawyers, others would spend more time with assistants, paralegals I got to talk with Miriam every time. Now that says a lot about the care she gives her clients.

I send all my foreign-born employees to Ms. Riedmiller for immigration processing. In 10 years of working with her, I have never had any of my employees denied a visa, I have never had their work performance interrupted because of slow or sloppy legal work, and I have never had them ask for a raise or a salary advance so they could pay legal her fees. I first met Ms. Riedmiller at a seminar at which she was the featured speaker. She knows her stuff and the results my employees have had and the lack of interruption to my business demonstrate that she's a great lawyer. I highly recommend her.

My experience with Atty. Riedmiller was outstanding. Atty. Riedmiller was exceedingly professional and extraordinarily competent. She exhibited a very strong knowledge of complex immigration law issues, and was masterful in handling my relatives' immigration case. Throughout her representation of my relatives, she demonstrated a keen sense of professional responsibility, great judgment, trustworthiness, and integrity. In light of my experience with Atty. Riedmiller, I was surprised to read a couple of unfavorable comments about Atty. Riedmiller on this site. I wonder whether these people had other hidden agenda. I would hope that anyone who reads these comments would not make any negative conclusion about Atty. Riedmiller without investigating the truthfulness of the comments and the credibility of the people opining. Indeed, it is very easy to destroy someone's reputation by manufacturing dubious information and then hiding behind the anonymity of the Internet.
