Posted by Anthony
Prior to being introduced to Thomas Arkell, I already talked to two other immigration attorneys. The first would not even look at my credentials, just asked me my year of graduation and then went on a monologue of how I should wait and get more experiences, bla bla bla. I went back to him about a year later and had the exact experience with him again. The other one simply asked me to send him my documents and he will evaluate and get back to me. Well, for a period of about seven months, I couldn't get anything concrete out of him, only a contract to sign which of course I did not sign. My reprieve came when I was introduced to Thomas Arkell. I had a very wonderful experience with Dunn Law Firm. My wife needed to have employment authorization for summer internship, so after evaluating our case Mr Arkell advised that we file concurrent I-140 and I-485 so that I-765 can also be filed instead of going the F1 route from H4. My NIW was approved in four (4) months without any RFE and the I-485 (filed concurrently) was approved 3 months later. I have already recommended Dunn Law Firm to my friends and they are all full of praises about the wonderful job these guys do. One of my friends got his H1B through Dunn Law and he is very satisfied with their service. I recommend Dunn Law to anyone who desires immigration attorney services that will give you peace of mind while going through the months of waiting and paranoia that comes with all the 'what ifs' that usually cross ones mind during the period.

I had an extremely pleasant experience working with Dunn Law Firm and Mr. Tom Arkell to obtain the US permanent residency through the national interest waiver petition. He patiently helped in preparing the support letters, documents and complete filing my application. His confidence and advice was very assuring, and the entire process took much less time than I anticipated. I have already introduced Mr. Arkell and talked about his great assistance to so many of my friends, and will also continue to do so to more and more friends. I highly recommend Mr. Tom Arkell for researchers seeking assistance in filing NIW.

I was introduced to Dunn Law and Mr. Arkell through a friend of mine who had worked with the firm on her successful permanent residence petition. Initially I had a few choices between various law firms but Dunn Law was highly recommended by my friend and my initial phone conversation and subsequent emails gave me more confidence about the service I would get. They also had given me a very reasonable service fee compared to other firms, so I decided to file my petition through Dunn Law. The initial consultation, which consisted of me sending my CV over and a 20-minute phone conversation, was free of charge, which was very helpful. At the time, I was a PhD student with multiple manuscripts in preparation and Mr. Arkell advised me to wait for a few months to publish those as well and receive more citations from my previous publications and to make my application stronger. I talked to Mr. Arkell a few months later and this time he deemed my application strong enough to file for NIW. The preparation of the required documents was relatively quick. In my opinion, Mr. Arkell’s team had a streamlined process, which was mostly done electronically. Their service was prompt and on-point, which saved a lot of time. I am completely satisfied with my experience working with this law firm. Several of my friends have worked with Mr. Arkell and his staff and they have all expressed positive views of their work ethics. I am happy with my decision to select this firm and I highly recommend their service.

I cannot thank Mr. Arkell and the Dunn Law Firm enough for their assistance and professionalism regarding the NIW cases. It was so relaxing and refreshing to be Mr. Arkell's client during the NIW process. Mr. Arkell and his firm provide a very professional and highly organized service. They are very responsive and reachable as well. I had such a successful experience with them that I have introduced more than 20 people to Mr. Arkell for their NIW petitions. I am glad to say that all my friends came back with the same experience as mine.

I filed for the National Interest Waiver using the services of Tom Arkell at Dunn Law Firm, Bloomington, IL. I started the process whilst a PostDoc at Iowa State University. Tom guided me through the process and handled all the paperwork very well. Tom’s paralegal was very helpful; quick to reply my emails and enthusiastic when answering my calls. When the process with USCIS was going slow, they followed up with inquiries on my behalf. The fact that payment for their services was spread over the process was helpful for me. A friend referred me to Tom Arkell and I’ll gladly recommend his/Dunn Law Firm services to anybody. Their fees are very reasonable for the top-notch services they offer.

A friend recommended Dunn Law Firm, and particularly Mr. Tom Arkell, to me when I was a 4th year PhD student at Notre Dame. I knew the frustrations that come with looking for a job without a green card. My only concern was the money. I knew that my friend got his green card in a matter of few months through Dunn Law Firm, so I talked to Tom and he gave my wife and I a flexible payment plan. Trust me – the service was amazing! Tom was honest, thorough and professional. I started my application with the NIW petition, waited for the approval, and then filed for a green card. My wife and I received our green card before I defended my PhD, which took less than a year. As a previous F-1 student, the relief that comes with having a green card before my PhD completion cannot be described. I had four Job offers after my PhD. If you are considering filing for NIW or any immigration related petitions look no further. Every penny spent was worth it. I would do it all over again with no reservations

Mr. Arkell is an awesome attorney, and highly recommended for NIW/EB1 applications.
He is very trustworthy, professional and helpful. He is conservative and practical in his approach.
He ensures that you really meet the criteria for NIW/EB1 (he will decline the case if you don't meet actually), prepares a strong application with high likelihood of approval without RFE. His professional fees is very nominal and genuine (Compared to other BIG names with similar or lesser expertise and experience). I filed both NIW and EB1A with him and both were approved without RFE.

Tom, handled my complex immigration matter and got the job done. I spent a fortune on an expensive Chicago lawyer, who messed things up, and Tom cleaned up the mess - professionally and expediently!
