    • I hired Christopher more than 3 years ago.
    • Christopher handled my Immigration matter.

    Kurczaba law handled my case perfectly. Have great counsel, wrote a detailed and specific waiver that got me to my green card. Recently recommended another friend who Mr Kurczaba secured extension for 1 year in court. I feel lucky to have gotten him as my attorney. Very affordable

    • I recommend Christopher Kurczaba.
    • I hired Christopher 1-3 years ago.
    • Christopher handled my Immigration matter.

    A great experience. This law firm is affordable and has made my immigration process easy compared with the daunting prospect of filling in the forms myself and the horror stories I have heard. I thoroughly recommend them. I had an extensive free consultation that lasted much longer than half hour. Mr Kurczaba extensively explained to me what the expectations were for my case and was very thorough. I would highly recommend him , especially for complexe cases.
    Mr Kurczaba possesses that rare combination of professionalism and sensibility which enables him to understand the nuances of a particular situation and recommend the most reasonable and the least complicated solution. Very glad I found this lawyer.

    • I recommend Christopher Kurczaba.
    • Christopher handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Kurczaba was working on my husband case for a couple of years. We were informed about the time needed for every step in the case and were prepared for the wait time that was needed. I'm glad he was with us during that time and I would recommend him to anybody in need of a patient lawyer.

    Our immigration case was not an easy one. Kurczaba prepared our application, spent a lot of time discussing details and never rushed although some of our appointments were very late in the evening. He went with us to the invterview. Since our file was so well docummented, there were no questions asked! We were in and out in 10 minutes. Every paper immigration official wanted- it was in the file and we just needed to show him where it is. Very happy with the services and I recommend Mr. Kurczaba to anyone!

    • I do not recommend Christopher Kurczaba.
    • I hired Christopher more than 3 years ago.
    • Christopher handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I used Mr. Kurczaba's services in 2005 with regards to Humaniatarian Parole for my grandfather. Mr. Kurczaba was knowledgable in regards to the information gathering, however his execution and conduct in composing a comprehensive request package was substandard. The Humanitarian Request letter composed by him (or his firm) contained spelling mistakes, incomplete sentences and errors pertaining to events and situations.
    The cost of writing this letter was (in 2005) $700. When I tried to contact Mr. Kurczaba regarding status of the case, my telephone calls were not returned. Neither was I given any response after I sent Mr. Kurczaba and his associate Mr. Whitcup a letter. I finally had to drive to his office to demand a status update. It turned out that his law firm mailed the letter 3 months after my request. The letter was also sent to DHS without my approval and full of mistakes.
    It is my belief that Mr. Kurczaba and his law partner prey on Polish immigrants who have poor language skills. I would never recommend this firm to anyone who has important immigration issues.

    1. Chris Kurczaba’s Comment:

      The review does not account for the proper procedures and agreement as to how a client matter was handled. The reviewer is not the actual client involved in the matter.

      My partner had completed and filed a detailed comprehensive request for review to the Immigration Service. This type of review asks the Immigration Service to consider the totality of circumstances and to utilize their discretionary authority to excuse transgressions in the Immigration Law. The actual client, the child of the applicant, not the grandchild who wrote the review, was advised of the difficulty in obtaining an approval in this matter. The discretionary nature of this matter was thoroughly discussed with the actual client. The application was filed at the client's request, despite the difficulty of obtaining an approval, and was solely based on information provided by the client.

      Never was there a discussion that the grandchild would review the application or make comments prior to filing. The client was advised that they would have to wait for a reply from the Immigration Service which could take a long period of time. The client, not their child, was advised as to the status of the application.

      Upon receipt of the decision, unfortunately a denial in the difficult matter, the issues were discussed with the client at length. The client understood the reasons for the denial. The client could contest the decision and file an appeal, they chose not to. The client also did not complain nor comment on any of the work performed for them in this matter.

      Contrary to the reviewers contentions, the request did not contain numerous spelling errors. That the grandchild chose to use caustic terms and phraseology in reply to their grandfather not getting a visa approval is an unfairly vindictive approach not based on facts or knowledge of the difficulty of obtaining an approval. The Immigration Service denied the application based on the totality of circumstances of the case, of which the client was well aware. The Immigration Service did not deny the case citing any problems with the facts, nor because of spelling errors.

      My partner and I have served thousands of clients of various ethnic backgrounds and have served as the Presidents and on the Boards of numerous Polish American social, political, cultural and educational organizations. We have an excellent reputation in the community and amongst our thousands of satisfied clients. We pride ourselves on having clients be able to discuss matter with us at any time. We would have been more than happy to review this matter with the client should they have expressed that they were unsatisfied with our services.
