    Lisa Scott, Immigration Law Group

    Lisa Scott was fantastic. We received her contacts from the Student Affairs office at my University, and came to her office with a time-sensitive visa concern. My partner and I had a visa situation that needed to be resolved in order for us to leave the country for study purposes. Not only that Lisa was able to find the right solution for this very specific problem and handle it quickly and efficiently, she has also been very responsive and helpful the whole time. She is knowledgeable, accessible, calm, empathetic and with a good sense of humor.

    Lisa's administrative assistant Kasia was just as kind and professional. She really went out of her way to help us and get our application processed on time. She was always available for questions, and when we couldn't reach her right away, she would contact us shortly after we left her an email or a message.

    Lisa Scott's office helped my partner and I submit our application and the process was successful. We highly recommend her services as an immigration attorney.

    simply the best....

    Lisa did everything another law firm was unable to do. Responded quickly to our request, asking the right questions and came to the right conclusions. Very responsive, even after hours, takes time to learn about the issue and offers valid and practicable solutions. I would recommend her anytime to anyone who is having immigration questions or issues.

    Immigration legal work executed flawlessly, and for a fair price!

    Lisa Scott was able to help me obtain my green card in a timely manner. I arrived to America to perform a job that required lots of international travel. I encountered many immigration issues to travel to certain countries and she was always able to find a way to help me with my travels and answer all my questions. During process of obtaining my green card, I had to renew temporary visas constantly and she always provided professional advice and support with every renewal.

    throughout the entire process. Lisa was responsive, knowledgeable and professional. She made it very easy for me to comply with documentation and regulations.

    Her team is also highly efficient, effective, and professional. I specifically worked a lot with Kasia Rechmal, legal assistant, who was nice to work with, professional, and a very pleasant person to interact with. Kasia always answered all my questions timely and provided explanations that were easy to understand when complicated and technical issues took place.

    I highly recommend Lisa Scott and her team.

She handled our cases superbly. She answered all my questions and concerns every step of the way and explained the process and why she was doing things a certain way in filing the paperwork. Her advice has been invaluable. She is a great immigration attorney.

    Highly Recommended - Experienced with all types of immigration cases

    Lisa Scott has handled my immigration process from the green card to citizenship. Recently, she has successfully completed my wife’s case. Most communication was via e-mail, and all of my questions and concerns were promptly addressed by her or her assistant. I greatly appreciate the hard work and high level of professionalism demonstrated by Lisa Scott through all steps of each application. I am very grateful to her and her assistant for my attorney's continuous legal and human support. Thank you for your diligence and effort.

    NIW-EB2

    I am a scientist (Biophysicist) and I contracted Lisa Scott as my legal representative to petition for a NIW EB-2. My experience with Lisa and her firm has been extremely positive.
    Prior to accepting to be my legal representative she took the time to ask all the specific questions needed for her to evaluate the likelihood of success. I am doing basic science and I was looking for an attorney who has experience with basic scientists. I am very impressed by Lisa Scott ability to translate the very technical scientific vocabulary I am using on a daily basis in a way that is understandable in layman term but without being generic. This is a very difficult exercise and she really did a fantastic job into giving a clear demonstration that what I am doing is important for the nation. The petition she assembled was very strong and it has just been accepted, four months after submission (which is also the processing time predicted by the USCIS at this time).
    One of the thing I appreciate the most is that she is extremely responsive by email each time questions arise.
    I am also very pleased and very enthusiastic about her legal assistant Kasia Rechmal, who helped us assembling the final documents. This is definitely a winning team, and I strongly recommend them.

    Do not waste your money

    This lawyer worked on my greed card application case three years ago, for which I paid her $5,000. I sent my materials to her for a preliminary screening and was told it was a strong case. However, my application finally got denied by USCIS, and her explanation was that she did not work for USCIS and did not hand out green cards so she was not responsible. Those are exactly what she told me. she lost the case but I did not get a penny back from her. I asked her to send the final package to me but only found out it was a mess and not well organized, at least not worth the money I paid. I DIYed my case later on, and finally my case was approved 5 months later, which proved that my case was strong but this lawyer is incapable.

    Lisa Scott’s response: “Dear "Immigration Client": I believe you are a client for whom we filed an Extraordinary Ability petition. In the last five years, we have had only two denials of EB-1 Extraordinary Ability cases. In one case, the client’s National Interest Waiver petition, filed concurrently with the Extraordinary Ability petition, was approved; this client’s employer subsequently filed an Outstanding Researcher petition on the client’s behalf. In the other case, upon denial of the Extraordinary Ability petition, the client retained our services for assistance in filing an Outstanding Researcher petition. We assisted him in preparing documents and letters for this petition but he did file this petition on his own. Our law firm adheres to its policy of informing all potential clients of the possibility of denial of EB-1 Extraordinary Ability cases. We always make sure to remind clients, before they retain us, that there can be no guarantee of approval. That said, our success rate in the approval of EB-1 Extraordinary Ability cases, as well as National Interest Waiver petitions, speaks to our commitment to excellence of service. Our firm is always receptive to constructive criticism. We take complaints from clients very seriously. We certainly regret that you feel your experience with our firm did not meet your expectations. We are happy to hear, however, that your case was ultimately approved.”

    Great expertise and professionalism

    Lawyer Lisa Scott has helped me obtain permanent residency through National Interest Waiver. Her thorough and organized approach have impressed me. Her expertise in Immigration law and her professionalism in handling my case made me trust her from the very beginning. She was always responsive to my questions and gave me the right guidance. Recently she helped me and my husband obtain our citizenship, and helped us extend our mom's visitor visa. Her guidance is always the right approach. I have great appreciation for Lisa's expertise and professionalism.
