I came to Mr. Raether at the recommendation of a colleague after I had received an outright denial for my L-1 petition. Using the same business model but making some important changes to the business plan and making a more convincing case in the petition, he refiled my petition and got an approval for the L-1. I also later successfully filed an H-1B with him, and he's working on my green card now. He is extremely responsive (even quickly answering my emails when I ran into problems while at the airport trying to enter the U.S.), trustworthy, and gets the job done. He speaks Russian very well, which is a big plus, but he's American and knows exactly how things are done here. I've tried other immigration lawyers, but they just don't compare.

Charles Raether has successfully assisted us with our immigration and business issues from my first L-1 petition to my green card approval. Mr. Raether did such an expert job of handling my petitions, we never even received an RFE on any of his petitions for my L-1 or EB-1 green card. I happened to find him online years ago after I started to run into problems with my L-1 petition with another attorney. Mr. Raether quickly focused on the weaknesses of the petition the other lawyer had put together and made the necessary changes to save the petition and get the approval. Since then he handled my L-1 extension, advised us on a number of business matters as we developed the business in the U.S., and secured my green card quickly and efficiently without even an RFE. Everything went perfectly. Mr. Raether takes a very personalized approach with his clients; is open and transparent; and does what he says. And his Russian language abilities make everything so easy to discuss with him. I would strongly recommend him as an expert immigration. attorney.

Mr. Raether's easily searchable website dedicated to auto fraud is what led us to him initially, but his responsiveness and forthright advice are what made us put our trust in him. He scheduled an initial consultation within a few days of first contacting him and was easy to reach moving forward. He provided specific advice on what to say and to whom specifically at the dealership with which we had an issue, offering to intervene on our behalf only if need be--which we greatly appreciated. His help turned what was a truly negative - and potentially very expensive - experience for my daughter into the ultimate positive outcome - and hopefully made us both more astute consumers in the process!

Mr. Raether was the first lawyer who decided to take on my case being that it was a very difficult one. Once Mr. Raether decided to take on my case I notified him that this was my first civil case that I was involved in and that I was not familiar with consumer laws at all. With that, I immediately looked for him to have patience with me in handling the case, and he did just that and more. He gave me guidance along every step of the way. He was very prompt in returning my phone calls and I felt like I could reach him at any time. Throughout the case he kept me informed on any changes. Most importantly to me, I didn't feel as if he was just trying to just collect money from my case. When he realized that my case may be lost in court, he advised me that it would be best for me to negotiate a settlement versus me continuing to accrue attorney fees and walking out with no money in court. I accepted his personal advice and took this as a lesson learned situation. I walked away with my negotiated settlement and a peace of mind. I truly believe that he worked hard and did his best on this case. I would definitely recommend him to others in the future.
