Mr. Jeelani has helped me get my permanent greencard. My husband caused me many problems with immigration and was making false statements with the officers, Mr. Jeelani spoke with the immigration officer and got my case into uscis and not into the court so i could get my green card. It was a relieve having Mr. Jeelani at the interview and explaining to the officer my situation. He is a very nice attorney.

Mr Jeelani helped me with AOS and I got my green card the other day. Everything went unbelievably smooth and I am very glad that I and my husband chose him. What we liked about him was that he was quite considerate and never pushy. I gave "good" to Responsive though because there were a couple times that I expected to hear back from his office a little sooner. But I would still say absolutely Excellent overall. He alwasy gave us very clear information and advice so that it was easy for us to follow.
I recently talked to a couple who had an easier case than mine and had a different lawyer, they took one year to finally file and got denied unfortunately. I see it is really important WHO you are working with!
Anyway I am honestly thankful to his work. I would definitely recommend him!

Hashim helped me on the H1B visa application process in a very aggressive timeline, and he did successfully prepare all the critical paperwrok and kept the process smooth and easy to follow.

Hashim made the entire process of obtaining residency in the USA easy to understand and considerably less stressful than it would have been for me if I had attempted this process on my own. I recommend Hashim to anybody who wants assistance with immigration.

I used the services of Hashim Jeelani for Immigration purposes. Here are the following traits that made me choose him over others: 1) Always available and Prompt in returning calls/emails. 2) Very personable and easy to work with. 3) Highly knowledgeable and offered apt solutions and resolved all my doubts with patience. 4) Very organized and his checklist of requirements proved to be very useful in gathering my documentation together. He promptly reminded me and constantly followed up with me to inquire about my updates and case status. He ensured that I followed the right guidelines in terms of gathering legal documents, certificates and necessary information. The overall legal service was outstanding and it saved me a lot of time and effort.

Mr. Jeelani saved me from a twisted unfinished immigration case. My previous lawyer didnt do a thing or know anything or even have an office. Mr. Jeelani took my case and put everything in order and got the ball rolling in no time at all. This proves how good he is when handed a totally screwed up case and fixed it all because he is extremely smart at what he does. He knows this business inside and out !! He knows his clients are in a hurry and thats just how he does things, fast, easy and all in the correct way no mistakes here. This man knows his stuff, plus some.
THANK GOD THANK GOD THANK GOD FOR MR. JEELANI, I cant thank you enough, I wish you a great future and career because your the best. If anyone needs an immigration attorney, I will refer you, also I will have you finish our case all the way to the end for citizenship.

We hired Mr. Jeelani to help us with our i-601 waiver after being denied at our visa interview. He was extremely helpful and very professional. Everything was able to be done over the phone, email and fax. When we received the waiver he prepared I was more than satisfied with the amount of effort that was put into it. Our waiver was filed and just over 1 month later, we got our letter in the mail saying our waiver was approved. I would highly recommened Mr. Jeelani to anyone going through immigration. I have delt with another local attorney who charged me a LOT of money and did not get any successful results. Mr. Jeelani charged very reasonable rates and had a quick result!

Attorney Hashim Jeelani saved me from having to go through deportation proceedings. A while ago, I had an embarassing incident that involved a domestic violence charge. This was an isolated incident and I had no other criminal charge. When I filed for naturalization, the USCIS officer told me that I was removeable and that I would have to go through deportation proceedings because I had a domestic violence conviction. I panicked and started looking for immigration attorneys in Michigan and found Hashim online. Attorney jeelani spoke to me on the same day and began working on my case that very night! He filed an appeal to my naturalization denial that week and got USCIS to overturn my denial. Because of Hashim I not only was granted my U.S. Citizenship, but I was also saved from deportation! He was worth every dollar I paid and more! I really recommend him and his staff!

I came to Hashim for help with my J1 hardship waiver. After he reviewed my case, he gave me the best news I could have ever gotten...I DID NOT NEED A WAIVER!!!... I had seen four other immigration lawyers over the last three year before Hashim and not one of them told me this!!!!....He was right..even though the immigration officer stamped that I was subject to the two year foreign residency requirement, Hashim told me that he doesn't take anything for face value...EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES, EVEN THE GOVERNMENT...and he showed me how the officer had made a mistake and that my country and my program sponsorship did not subject me to the two year requirement!!!.... For anyone who has been on a J1 Visa...you know how tough this can be..I had Hashim file my adjustment of status and everything went smoothly....We got an RFE and Hashim filed a memorandum explaining the law and why I wasn't subject to the requirement....USCIS accepted my case after a couple of months....This is an honest attorney who could have made thousands of dollars by filing a waiver but did not and really saved me from so much stress and hardship... If you want someone who will handle your case honestly and intelligently, call this Attorney!

I recently hired Hashim for my E2 visa application. And yes, my investor visa was approved just two days ago at the Toronto Consulate. My interview was only 15 minutes long and the officer asked me at most 5 questions. I have never seen Hashim in person because I live in California but I contacted Hashim because he worked on my cousin's Eb5 visa application and got it approved. I would absolutely recommed Hashim as an immigration lawyer to anyone who is looking for help. One last thing...when I called Hashim's office, I spoke with him and not his secretary or some paralegal.
