Paid $150 for the first consultation with Y. Meltser He agreed to take the case and he was supposed to file a transfer of my case from Boston, MA to Chicago, IL in 2006. It never happened. He never requested the transfer, never called us, never did anything which resulted in missing my court date in 2010 in Boston. As a result my case ended in receiving a deportation. He talks too much and does nothing. At least it was my experience with Yevgeniy (Gene) Meltser.
Gene took on a case where 2 other lawyers completely screwed up and were unable to resolve it. After a long battle with tie CIS and the Departmenr of State I now have my Green Card!!!!! My marriage is SAVED!!! I originaly found his name in an article in the Chicago Tribune or Chicago Sun-Times where he helped a Chicago Police Officer get his fiancee here, where 2 others failed and the officer was being totally desperate because DOS would not properly handle the case. THANK YOU MR. MELTSER!!!!
Brought my immigration case to this lawyer, paid him to file 2 things: new immigration petition and an appeal based on misrepresentation. He didnt file an appeal and never returned money for it. Even more when i went for immigration interview for the new immigration petition that was filed, right at the exit i got picked up by ICE because Meltser never filed an appeal, so my case stayed closed. He ignored my calls from immigration jail and have never made an attempt to visit me there or provide any kind of help or consultation while i was there. I would not recommend this attorney to anyone.
I have used Mr. Meltser for various legal matters ranging from traffic issues, personal injury, business matters and immigration consultations, and have always felt as if I have a knowledgeable and professional advocate on my side. Additionally, his network of legal and professional references is valuable in situations that require experts in other legal areas. I would recommend Mr. Meltser to my family and friends first and foremost.
Being represented by Mr. Meltser not only gives me confidence in outstanding results and outstanding service, but support system of experts in a variety of fields. From initial meeting to delivered results, every step along the way, Mr. Meltser keeps clients informed about the progress and maximizes value by evaluating effecting factors. His experience and expertise in immigration, corporate, and international law gives clients an outstanding resource for successful and effective representation.
