My OPT extension was denied because of filling/documentation error. I was left with two options either file i-290B (motion to reopen/ reconsider) or go to the CPT school.
My case: I submitted my OPT STEM extension application before my DSO update my I-20. My DSO was on vacation and was clear misunderstanding. I filed my application on 7th of August and DSO updated my i-20 on 18th of August.
My friend referred me to the best law firm, and she said you can't do anything in this case. Either go to CPT or you need to leave the country there is no chance that your i-290b application will get approved. She didn't ask for anything and didn't listen me why that happened. She left saying for 200$ I can help only this much. She even didn't answer my all the questions.
Next day I got in touch with Dawn, she was very friendly on the phone and laugh at me why I am so worried its matter of filing error. I feel so confident after talking to her. I met her same day and explain her everything, sent her all the email conversation that I had with my DSO. She started working on my case from the same day. She completed my case while she was on vacation (it was a Christmas time). She kept me posted about every steps.
After 2 month USCIS re-open my case and overturn their decision and approved my application. I wouldn't be able to take that bold step to file motion if I didn't meet Dawn. I highly recommend Dawn as your lawyer. Seriously best lawyer ever.
I had an immigration case and was happy to have Dawn as my lawyer. She made the process very easy for us, took our case personally and did a great job explaining details and procedures in a way that was easy to understand. I would highly recommend for any immigration issues you may have. Honest, professional and knowledgeable immigration lawyer who will give you the right advise and the best representation.
I consulted Dawn Sequeira during filing an H1B VISA petition. My employer had his own attorney but I needed a second thorough opinion since the case was complicated (I had moved my i20 to a different university only some time before finding this employer).
Immigration and Law related issues are stressful to say the least. You want someone who both - sharp and responsive. Dawn Sequeria is a very bright attorney who kept my best interests in mind and provided detailed guidance over phone.
1) I sent all my documents for review one day before the H1B petition filing. She had completed a thorough assessment and provided me with (a) list of documents which were missing (b) her assessment about the likelihood of approval - which she was right!!
2. I had written down my questions before my call & asked her one-by-one on our phone consultation. She was extremely patient with my tons of questions. She was also great in providing suggestions - which paperwork to keep ready - in case an RFE is received from USCIS. This reduced my anxiety.
I highly recommend her to different applicants and employers!
The legal service I received from Patel Law Firm was outstanding.
I was amazed by the way my case (filing for I-539) was handled with a remarkable attention to details. The results were excelent.
I would recommend this lawyer to anyone seeking legal services
I would recommend Ms. Sequeira because every time I have had any concerns with my case or any legal questions she has always pointed me in the right direction as far which are my best options and recommended to me what is in allways in my best interest. She is a very pleasant person to speak to and no matter how many times I ask the same question she always take time out and explain things to me in a very patient way. I would recommend her to anyone because she punctual, friendly, reasonably priced and above all honest.
