    • I recommend William Gerstein.

    I used the services of William Gerstein for E2 visa approval. Before speaking with him I had spoken with over fifteen lawyers and all I had provided different versions on the feasibility of the application for a visa for my business.
    The decision was made based on specific criteria:
    Experience in the real estate business
    Sending references spontaneously without having requests
    Fair price
    Payment method with risk-sharing (50% upon signing, 25% of the submission of applications, 25% to the result if positive)
    Italian language
    On 12 March we got the E2 visa for the period of 5 years. Based on the results obtained can only be satisfied with the decision and advise him for his professionalism, reliability and preparation Dr. Graziano Pietropaolo MBA

    • I recommend William Gerstein.

    My wife and I are greatly thankful to William Gerstein. We recently received our green cards thanks to his ability to identify our eligibility, prepare our application and successfully defended the case through the entire process. William Gerstein is a straight forward professional, very knowledgable and confident in every step he takes. I regard him as the type of lawyer that would only file a petition if he believes that it meets all requirements to be approved. Our case for permanent residence was rather complex. William Gerstein would pursue it and defend it until it was successfully approved. He had to do lengthy work for us and he charged us an honest and fair price for it. We can't thank William enough for his work and we believe to be lucky to found him in the first place.

    • I recommend William Gerstein.
    • I hired William 1-3 years ago.
    • William handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Dr. Gerstein was hired to help us with our immigration/permanent residence request. We met a couple of lawyers before and after meeting him we recognized his expertise, knowledge and trustworthiness. Dr. Gerstein is no responsive but extremely committed with his profession, his tasks and elements of confidentiality. He rapidly analyzed the information, took the case, processed all the paperwork with extreme perfection and kept us informed of every single step even during his period of vacations. He is also equipped with an excellent staff that is able to handle cases in several languages. Highly recommended.

    There really isn't much more to say except, if you want to win, you better choose him!! Attorney William Gerstein is the best money can buy. He is very thorough and will fight for your rights to the bitter end. He will stop at nothing until he wins your case. He is simply excellent at his craft.

    • I recommend William Gerstein.

    I fully recommend the lawyer William Gernstein for his professionalism and total knowledge of the laws, especially in the immigration field. His experience made feel a lot of security in a case that was a little bit complicated in my opinion. Also is a lawyer with a very reasonable attorney fee I always felt that the service he offered me was more valuable in proportion to the money I have invested.

    • I recommend William Gerstein.
    • I hired William more than 3 years ago.
    • William handled my Immigration matter.

    When we started for looking for lawyer to assist with our process, I searched tons of websites and then found William on some random site, but his profile and the way his company's information was set up maybe it very easy for me to decide I would use his services. So we sent an email just to ask general questions and he answered each one every time, and never asked us to come and see him for him to advise further and all of this was even before we had made a final decision to use him. The way he handled that meant that I would be getting someone who was very responsive and attentive to our situation. We are very pleased with all that has transpired and could not be happier with the help he and his team has provided us since we started this process. We even passed his details around to our family members and also a few friends in case they needed assistance and we do hope they will use him in the future as well. As we will continue to use his firm for any legal assistance we would need.

    I have known William Gerstein for 20 years now. Bill handled my personal immigration, has assisted many of my real estate customers in immigration issues and most recently processed my husband's documentation. Bill is very personable and the ultimate professional. Over his many years of working with immigration officials in South Florida he has developed the relationships and reputation that will ensure that your application is processed properly the first time and that you achieve a timely result. I recommend Bill without any hesitation. I work with many attorneys through my real estate business but rank Bill as one of the finest that I have ever had the pleasure to work with.

    very straight forward**** will tell like it is, he is very confident.I had been trying to get my green card since 1995 using multiple Lawyers, got denied over and over. When I got to his office a year ago, things became better, got my work permit until I have now my green card
    Another reason I am speaking so highly of him. My Sister got deported due to her case being denied, I paid bunch of money to another Lawyer to help her get back here. Nothing happened. Then I contacted Mr. Gerstein he only send a letter to the Consulate in Port-au-prince, next thing they call my Sister to pick up her visa after they denied her case .......................................
    I want to make it clear I didn't get paid for this. I just think he deserves some positive feedback.
    Thank you, Very much !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thank you, Mr. Gerstein
