After years of trying to straighten out immigration problems with my adopted daughter I hired Monica Kiene to help. She was compassionate, very knowledgeable about immigration and though it took time dealing with immigration( they work at their own snail pace)! My situation was resolved and we are grateful to Monica for all her time and energy. Thanks Monica!!
My wife is from a 3rd world country and when I married her we had 1 years to file citizenship papers and didn't know what to do or who to turn to, a friend recommended Monica to us; we are so glad to have had her as our immigration lawyer, she kept us in the loop and made sure that all of our paperwork was filed and completed correctly. Not only that, she actually stayed with us throughout our entire interview process to make sure everything was "up and up". She also informed us of the types of questions that we could be asked. I would recommend Monica to anyone looking for an above and beyond lawyer(and they are hard to find, let me tell you).
M.H and B.N
We hired Monica to help us navigate the green card process for my husband. Monica was very thorough in explaining to us the different options. In addition, she was always available when we had questions, from the simple to the complex. Monica also sent us very complete lists of every document we needed to compile, how much everything would cost, and what the process would be like step by step. She prepared all the final documents for us; we only had to sign them and send them to her. She also prepared us well for the interview. All in all, thankfully, the process didn't take too long, and we are definitely sure that we couldn't have navigated the process without her. We were so happy and pleased she agreed to work with her, and would definitely highly recommend her services to anyone.
I highly recommend Monica Kinene's services as an attorney. Her work on my husband's immigration case was thorough and professional, and she provided results much faster than we expected. She communicated with us clearly throughout the process, and kept us updated on developments at all times. A truly caring professional, she went above and beyond in assisting my husband and myself. I would recommend Monica Kinene without reservation to anyone in need of legal services.
Monica made sure I gathered all the documentation and left no stone unturned. She was also flexible and accommodating with regard to meeting times since I was mostly out of town. Her professionalism and knowledge made what would have been a rather daunting experience incredibly smooth.
Our applications, (me and my wife), breezed through in no time, (a little less than 2 months). Our interviews were scheduled on different days but, with the advice we received from the attorney, this was changed on the day my wife was scheduled for her interview. We ended up being interviewed on that same day. We were impressed by the accuracy of the attorney's work.
Monica Kinene helped me file the 1-751 application for removal of conditions on my U.S permanent resident status. She clearly explained the entire process and the requirements before we got started.
She constantly followed up the case for me with the USCIS service center and regularly updated me with the current status of my application.
My case was approved this year and I believe her professional vigilance is what made it possible.
Monica helped me with filing paperwork with USCIC so that I could get my Landed Immigrant status after I married a US citizen. I was working in the States on a very important project and I needed to ensure that I maintained valid work status.
Monica was very familiar with the process and gave excellent guidance throughout. The paperwork she filed for the process was exactly what was needed. USCIC never asked for any additional paperwork or clarifications or corrections.
Monica was very professional about returning calls and emails in a timely matter. She was also very proactive in explaining how the application process would work. I asked her a lot of questions throughout the process and she always had insightful answers.
