Ricky Malik is the Best Immigration attorney in Northern Virginia area. He worked with me and my brother on a complex immigration issue. He clearly understood the problem and gave us his honest opinion and guidance. He explained us all our options clearly and guided us with the best possible solution. He was quick to reply to emails and was easily reachable. I had contacted multiple immigration lawyers before contacting him and I can assure you there is no one more professional, considerate, honest and trustworthy than Ricky Malik in this business. Will work with him again in future matters.

Stop wasting time and look no further - Ricky Malik is the best immigration attorney you can find!!! After 18 years long unsuccessful immigration proceedings, going from one immigration attorney to another and spending over $50 000 in attorneys and court fees, after exhausting all possible appeals - I met Ricky Malik who immediately struck me as a very knowledgeable, honest, compassionate and dedicated to his job attorney - unlike the cold blooded, uncaring and mainly money motivated attorneys I've met through all those years. I was at my last straw - I was in deportation proceedings and I had exhausted all possible court proceedings and appeals with only one last chance to file a motion to reopen my case. Despite my desperate situation, I felt comfortable and confident with Ricky Malik by my side and I was very impressed by his creativity and diligence. Ricky Malik did what other attorneys thought was impossible - he worked and fought hard on my case to remove the deportation proceedings and to obtain a permanent resident status after long 18 and a half years. I very strongly recommend Ricky Malik to anyone! And, based on my long and painful experience with the US Immigration system and meeting so many cold hearted, greedy immigration attorneys - I feel sorry for all immigrants who haven't met Ricky Malik and hired other immigration attorneys. If Ricky Malik can't help your case, no one else can!

Mr. Malik steered me through a complicated immigration matter which involved reopening a case which had an outstanding deportation order and, through his guidance, I have obtained my citizenship

Ricky is a terrific lawyer. He is a modern day miracle worker!
Our son was in ICE detention ineligible for bond and awaiting deportation. As a result of Ricky's hard work my son is now free and has a second chance to live here and raise his daughter. I will be forever be indebted to him for his help in making this possible. He even got his case moved up on the docket so it was adjudicated months earlier than it normally would be. He is respected by the judge and prosecutors and he uses that to help your case.
We interviewed several lawyers and even hired one before we were recommended Mr. Malik. He's a straight shooter that will tell you where you stand in regards to the case against you, and will explain everything about the process that will take place.
The other lawyer we originally hired had an impressive TV commercial, but after we hired him we were shuffled off to a junior lawyer who didnâ€™t seem to know what she was doing and we were never told what was going to happen with our case.
When you hire Ricky you get Ricky! If you need an immigration lawyer, my advice would be to hire Ricky Malik and then do everything he asks in preparation of your case. Give him all the documentation he needs and he will fight for you.

With our personal experience with various immigration lawyers you need to be very very careful with who you choose to defend your case. My wife's case was very complex and we had used one lawyer who got us nowhere for a long long time and took lots of our money. Then we found Ricky Malik and what a blessing it was for me and my wife. In a short period of time we were able to work with him to win our case and start to enjoy our life without legal problems anymore. Ricky was extremely knowlegable and very thourough in every aspect of our case. Great contact and fast to return our calls with questions we had. This was an amazing experience given what we had been through for five years before we hired Ricky and I would highly recommend him to anyone facing immigration issues . He is a first class professional fighting for his clients unlike many other lawyers looking for just your money.

I cannot find enough good things to say about Mr Malik. He is amazingly awesome!!!
Due to incompetent company lawyers, I found myself in a bleak position of having my I-140 being denied during the green card process. The denial was based on the premise that my degree (3 year degree obtained in the British educational system) was not equivalent
to a US 4 year degree.
I was quite distressed and distraught since I had been trying to obtain permanent residency for over ten years and due to circumstances beyond my control was unable to. It seemed that this attempt to obtain permanent residency was yet again destined to fail.
However, I came across Mr Malik here on avvo.com and that was the beginning of a new day for me. Based on the avvo.com user reviews and peer endorsements as well as a review of his website, I felt that Mr Malik would be able to help.
I called him and was able to get a same day face-to-face consultation. Mr Malik was very kind and was genuinely concerned about my situation. He carefully recorded all of the details of my case and suggested different options for proceeding. I felt at
peace and so very comfortable with Mr Malik that I immediately asked him to take my case. He did. Mr Malik performed further in-depth research, took the time to call me, and explained
to me the options again - presenting the pros and cons of each option.
Together, we decided to file an appeal which included a more comprehensive educational evaluation, including an expert opinion. Mr Malik also found and included correspondence from USCIS which supported my situation.
Within a month, we received word from USCIS that my appeal documents had been reviewed and approved and that the I-140 denial was reversed and now approved. As a result of this my I-485 (which had been filed concurrently with the I-140) was also approved. I received my green card approximately 6 weeks after Mr Malik's filing of the appeal!!!
I would recommend Mr Malik highly to anyone. He is a very kind, humble, and sympathetic man - easygoing and a pleasure to work with. During the extreme stress of the immigration
process Mr Malik had a way of being able to put me at ease.
In addition to all of this, Mr Malik is thorough and Mr Malik is attentive (he always responded to my emails and to my telephone calls with great response time). Mr Malik is reasonably priced and above all Mr Malik gets the job done!!!
You cannot go wrong with Ricky Malik.
Thanks again for your help Mr Malik...

I met Mr. Malik a few years ago before he started his own firm. I had heard through other clients that he was a dedicated and knowledegable attorney. Recently I was in urgent need of his services and experience. Mr. Malik listened carefully to my concerns and his sound advise showed me that he reconized the impotance of my family immigration matters. I really can't stress enough that Mr. Malik's efforts prodiced a high quality result in my case.

My case was a migratory issue, it wasn't easy but Ricky made it happen.
I liked how informative he was, we knew exactly at what point of the case we were.
He is very reachable and professional. His knowledge on the matter came through all along, he has a lot of experience and after solving my case I frankly don't think there are impossible cases for him.
Another thing I liked is how fast he made things happen, I felt he cared about my situation.
The results tells it all. Highly recommended!

Ricky is the most professional attorney I have encountered by far. He is extremely knowledgeable in immigration, he is always updated with new changes in immigration law. He really does all the can to help his clients, even in the mos difficult of cases. He does not put off his work, it was always his priority, and that shows in the results! He has a great eye for detail & that shows in his extreme care in handling all of his work. It really shows that he cares about his clients and loves his work! :) I highly highly recommend him!

I would highly recommend Ricky Malik and I would like to thank him by posting on this site. We had a terrible attorney working on my wife's immigration case before we met Ricky. We were dazed, confused, broke, and had gotten nowhere after two years. We decided to consult with another attorney because we felt horribly wrong about the path we were being led on. Ricky took the time to ask very pertinent questions that the other attorney neglected to ask. Ricky had a clear idea of the path we were to take before shoving a contract down our throats. We felt at ease with Ricky from the beginning and we were always informed of the next step just like clockwork. Ricky was always a phone call away. He never rushed us off the phone, instead he took the time to answer all our questions. Good luck finding a better attorney than Ricky Malik.

I am a member of the immigration bar and have known Mr. Malik for 2 years, and have worked with him closely. Mr. Malik has successfully represented clients from throughout the country, and has garnered a reputation as one of the top immigration attorneys in the DC Metro area, and beyond. Mr. Malik provides clients with a broad spectrum of highly-specialized immigration services including removal (deportation) defense, relief from detention, family based and employment petitions, motions to reopen, NACARA, asylum, withholding, CAT, VAWA, and many wide ranging visas matters including highly skilled professionals and individuals with extraordinary and exceptional abilities. He has also achieved relief for countless clients through the Board of Immigration Appeals as well as the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Malik’s experience and skills allow him to seamlessly navigate through one of the most complex and nuanced bodies of American jurisprudence. I have watched him achieve successful outcomes for clients who were told that their cases were unwinnable. I have witnessed his compassion and good nature as he works tirelessly to keep families together, and have seen him consistently go the extra mile where others would throw in the towel. There are few bodies of law where a successful outcome for a client can make such an impactful difference in the lives of the individual, the family, loved ones, friends, and even future generations. Having seen countless immigration attorneys at work, I can say without reservation that Mr. Malik is at the top of his field, and would recommend him wholeheartedly.

You can be confident that you will receive competent legal services. I have experienced other immigration attorneys in the area, and the most honest and knowledgeable lawyer is Ricky Malik. My entire family and I are satisfied with his services. Last year, Ricky Malik represented my cousin in his legal permanent resident application, my parents in their visitor visa petition, and me in my citizenship process. In his office, I have seen all the great work of his staff and the success he had with many other clients. I sincerely appreciate Ricky Malik’s support and efficacy at solving my legal concerns.
Thank you again,
Cynthia D. Arevalo
