My I-751 waiver got denied by USCIS last year. Then the case went to the immigration court. It's approved by the immigration judge this month. Thank you, Mr. Rusten Hurd and your team! Your excellent work helped me won this difficult case. I am so grateful for your help!
Mr. Rusten Hurd and his team were nothing but amazing to my husband and myself. As an American citizen married to a Norwegian, we went through an extremely difficult time and process fighting to be together in the same country. We were in the final steps of our immigration process, when the clinic where my husband had gotten his medical examination from forgot to fill out the medical exam application properly. We were very ignorant of the process, and didn't double check it before handing it over to immigration for our final step. During our interview with the immigration officer, he said would let us know his final decision by mail. We were so hopeful, hoping that this would be the end of our wait and we could finally be together without having to travel back and forth. The immigration officer sent us a letter saying my husband was denied his green card (adjustment of status) because "the doctor who did the examination said" that my husband did not provide identification at the time of the exam. Of course, that was untrue, and frankly impossible, as the clinic's staff would have never gone ahead with the exam had my husband not provided an ID. This made me furious and very upset to say the least. I looked for lawyers close-by and found Mr. Hurd. From the very first consultation, he was honest, straight to the point, understanding, and very kind. He suggested we go for a service reopening and that we contact the clinic and get a new copy of the examinations so that we could send them together, and hopefully the immigration office would reopen the case. This was not our fault that the clinic forgot to put my husband's ID number on the application form; it was a clerical error, and this was the point that Mr. Hurd made in order to get our case looked at a second time by another officer. One month after the case was reopened, my husband received his green card in the mail. I cannot express the gratitude that my husband and I have towards Mr. Hurd and his team. I recommend him 200%!
Rusten Hurd did a great job for us. My husband and I had four cases with him. He found the best way to achieve our goals with minimum risk, and he always got the results we wanted. He offers fixed, reasonable prices.
I always felt protected, that if something went wrong, Mr. Hurd would fix it. He is very knowledgeable and competent. I asked a lot of questions and he was able to answer them all. I appreciated his attention to detail in triple checking our forms. Mr. Hurd is also very kind, friendly and comfortable to deal with. He was always easy to reach by phone or email, and responded immediately, even when he was out of the country.
Mr. Hurd took my case pro bono. He didn't charge me a penny. But he resolved my case in less than one year when two other attorneys couldn't in five years. He and his staff were very prompt with the process. Immigration law can be very complicated, but he was very confident and gave me comfort not to worry. He knew what he was doing. He DID his homework on my case for sure. He had commitment, and got me the result I was looking for. Mr. Hurd is also friendly and a good listener.
I would highly recommend Rusten. He represented me in a cancellation of removal case. He and his staff are highly professional and knowledgeable. My application for cancellation was granted. He and his staff made this stressful process so much easier on me and my family.
I have worked with many different attorneys in the past and I have to say he is the first one I've come across that really cares about his clients. He is highly professional, knowledgeable, prompt and just a wonderful person to have working for you. He took on my case which was an old deportation that had been closed and reopened it, something at least 4 different attorneys did not want to do. From the beginning it has been clear that he cares enough to get the job done. He takes the time to fully study everything from every angle and works to find the right solution for you. This is exactly what you want in someone navigating the legal system for you. When I had some communication issues with one of his staff members, he went out of his way, calling back several times and emailing to try to set up a time to talk every little detail out with me and explaining all the legal jargon and technicalities calmly and professionally. Overall, I'm very pleased with all he's done for me and my family. I highly recommend his services.
Respectable Sir Hurd was true authentic Lawyer. He was listning to my case over the phone and gave me a professional advise. 10 out of 10 and May God Bless him.
Best and Professional
Mr Hurd and his team has represented me through the process of obtaining my green card.It only took me about 3 months to get my permanent green card.I messed up my paperwork before and I was stuck in a bad situation for 4 years.Mr Hurd seems to understand my situation and provided the service which I'm very satisfied with.He is very experienced,professional,knowledgeable,responsible,and kept me informed on every little step in my case.The best of all is his price is fair compare to what other lawyer offices charged me.Also his office staff is very professional and courteous,their follow up service is the best.They even offered services after I got my green card.Mr Hurd and his team not only provided immigration services to me but reunited me and my family.I wish I hired them earlier.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Hurd and his office practice to anyone I know that would need legal services.
