JP and Arty were a great in helping with my sponsorship and application for a CR-1 visa for my wife. They responded quickly and concisely to all of our many questions and broke down our action items in a way that was logical and easy to follow. My wife also appreciated the one-on-one interview prep. I would highly recommend JP an Arty and will surely seek to use their services again if the need arises.
From our first meeting, in our subsequent contacts, and in the pre-trial hearing, Mr. Sarmeniento's manner was professional and suited to the circumstances. He made himself accessible, both by e-mail and by phone. His responses were prompt. He proved to be sincere and forthright. The conclusion of our dealings with him? We were granted asylum.
During my physician-in-training period, I got married overseas. I decided that I wanted the help of an attorney rather than to try to tackle the daunting task of applying for my wife's visa and permanent resident status myself.
I found JP, and he was incredible. Very helpful, very responsive, punctual and really worked with my schedule and financial situation at the time. I would highly recommend him and in fact, plan to return for my wife's naturalization process now.
Atty JP and his staff has been very helpful and accomodating to me and they were very responsive in all my questions. My experince with them has been very pleasant.
Attorney Sarmiento provided me with free consultation via phone and email and answered all questions in detail before obtaining his services. I was an international student on OPT with a MSN Nurse Practitioner degree. Unlike most immigration lawyers I've talked to, he has handled cases on changing status from F1 to permanent residency via EB2 scheduled A.
After finding a willing sponsor, Attorney Sarmiento handled my case with patience and professionalism. He responded to the RFE's very clearly and in detail.
The lawyer fees are very reasonable and relatively lower than most other lawyers I've inquired about.
Thank you for everything, Attorney JP Sarmiento.
3 MTRs were done by JP for my 3 siblings that would've been left in India for another extra possible 15+ years it it wasn't for JP. Our cases had been administratively closed as well as denied due to abandonment without me even knowing. I called him and he calmly explained to me how he had helped someone who previously went through the same situation. Out cases had been closed for 5 years. They only give you 30 days to reply to letters and I learned of my cases after continuous phone calls all those years wondering why online my cases still said "processing" next to them. All in all, he made the impossible possible. I called many lawyers and they all said tbere was no chance of the cases still opening. He took the necessary paperwork and took action. First two opened after 5 1/2 months and the last case opened about a year and one month later, all three were approved. I've never been happier to receive a letter in the mail.
My case description is in his website. I am proud to say that I am now one of Attorney JP's success story. I am the client from Michigan. I retained his firm's services, July 2014 and not once did I regret this decision. My I-140 was approved October, 2014 without RFE.
I have my own share of horror stories with different immigration lawyers. Lawyers who ask for unreasonable fees, some will tell you upfront that there is a limitation to your inquiries even if you will hire their services, some who will advertise for a free consultation but will ask for a fee before they will answer your question and a particular lawyer who is downright rude with demanding for fees. It was a very frustrating experience. Almost made me give up...
I found Attorney JP in the internet. I read his success stories in his website. I availed of his free consultation. I sent numerous emails and he answered ALL of them WITHOUT holding anything back. This is what TRULY DEFINES FREE CONSULTATION. He is honest and very organized with his explanations in our exchange of emails. I have understood everything easily. And then he gave me a call... That sold me out! He was kind and very thorough with explaining the immigration laws that pertain to my case and most importantly the risks involved with my application. My case is "unique" as he described it.
All throughout the process of my I-140 application, I sent A LOT of inquiries and he answered each with kindness, patience and promptness. There are times I call him at the office and NOT ONCE did he gave an impression of irritability or impatience. And most importantly, he consistently kept me informed with the status of my case.
With regards to his expertise, I was impressed with how he handled and argued my application in legal writing. Simple yet POWERFUL. That's the way to describe it. As proof, with premium processing, my I-140 was approved without RFE.
We have recently filed my application for permanent residency. Through the sincere hardworking character of Attorney JP, another dream came true. Thank you Attorney JP and your team for all your help. My dream would not be a possibility without your exemplary character, excellent work ethics and TRUE expertise in immigration law. Again, Maraming Salamat.
I really had good experience with JP and his assistants. My green card case went smooth with their help and support. People who work their very responsible, knowledgeable, supportive, always respond to my emails. Thank you for my green card, now me and my husband can really plan a lot here in this country.
Atty. Jp Sarmiento is simply the best. It's not easy for me to trust someone well esp. lawyers but when he helped me get my waiver for me to file the green card and he gave me all the info and always answer to all my emails, I knew then he is one of the few lawyers I can trust. Even my husband feels the same way with me when it comes to trusting lawyers because he had a bad experience. Atty. Jp has proven that he deserves our trust together with his associates. I would recommend his firm. I got my green card with ease. They are very professional and take their jobs seriously. Atty Jp Sarmiento definitely exudes my expectation.

Thank you JP Sarmiento for all your swift response to my emails,Juan for taking time out to prepare us for the interview,the account team,Arty for the updates in regards to my case. Kudos to you all and God bless!
