I had visited two immigration lawyers including Karen and was absolutely impressed with her knowledge from the get go (PS: I came to know about Karen's qualifications/reviews via AVVO, thanks). She took time to review my credentials and explain options available for my GC . The most appreciative thing was she was very candid about the options and did not provide any false hopes. She was very organized and provided updates whenever/wherever possible. In my case which was borderline EB1, she assured me it can be done and lo and behold I got my GC soon enough (the other attorney was not too confident). She was extremely thorough and systematic in her approach and always responsive. I have received responses to my questions while she was on vacation, late nights, weekends; not to mention the excellent support she has in Melinda. Overall I was glad to have hired Karen and strongly recommend her for anybody looking at their immigration options.

Outstanding Client service. We worked with Karen for almost 3 years as we went through the lengthy immigrations process. She was always patient with our questions and VERY prompt in responding. Her knowledge was also outstanding and the whole process she handled was done very professionally and very timely. In addition I thought the fees were very reasonable. I would hightly recommend her and her firm

Karen-Lee Pollak did a fantastic job handling my Green Card application (adjustment of status from E-3). Karen-Lee is knowledgeable, responsive (typically responds to emails within an hour) and thorough. Highly recommended.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Karen and her courteous and helpful assistant, Melinda. Given some of the horror stories we had heard from several quarters in relation to the immigration process and attorneys, we were pleasantly surprised at the professional nature of their services. Importantly, she was knowledgeable about each step of the process (ability to fly in and out of the country at each step of the process) and took care to respond even on weekends. They kept us informed throughout about what one were supposed to expect in the ensuing time frame. I would recommend her services without any reservation for any potential immigration applicants.

Karen Lee helped my husband and I through the permanent residency process through marriage. She was the most knowledgeable of all the attorneys we interviewed. She prepared us for the marriage interview and knew what the interviewer would and probably would not ask. We would recommend her to someone looking for help with this issue.

I found Karen-Lee on Avvo in August last year based on her reviews and after doing some research, decided to make a few phone calls to other immigration specialists that also had good reviews. In the end I decided on Karen as she was straight-forward, knowledgeable, extremely response, and gave me the most reasonable price of the lot. Some of the attorneys would not give a quote (not even a range) over the phone and required a paid consultation, which I felt seemed inflexible, mechanical and perhaps slightly shady/insincere.
She attended the interview with me and needless to say, my file was well prepared and so it was a breeze and we passed with flying colors. Extremely happy with the service provided and I'd definitely recommend her to others.

I got my green card! She did an amazing job and I hope anyone going through a tough immigration time finds this and hires her! She was life saving. Any dealing with the immigration involves tons of paperwork, intimate knowledge of deadlines, and general knowledge of how they process things. In this regard I was more than happy for having
Karen by my side to assure that I wouldn't get delayed or turned down because of overlooking a detail. I was charged a fair set fee, that didn't go up as I ran into some minor bumps along the way. Karen was always available same day for any questions that I had. I am going to stay in touch with her to help her file my citizenship.

Karen assisted me in my H1B process. I can honestly say that her experience and knowledge were essential in having it approved. She kept me informed during the whole process and was always available and prompted to answer my questions. She is the best attorney I have worked with.

I know Karen Pollack since 2008 through one of my soccer friend, who used her services. Based on his feedback I hired her and suggested her name to my friends. She is really a professional attorney handles things differently than her peers and present things in an innovative. She is very knowledgable and adept in recent developments in science and technology front as well. She is kind enough to lend her helping hand when needed. She did a splendid job in my case and gave excellent advice.
She is a super star at law in a lone star state with broad client base in other states and top tier universities.
I strongly recommend her services.

Everything went smoothly and painlessly with my naturalization. After previous mishaps trying to navigate the shoals of the federal bureaucracy by myself, I turned it over to Karen-Lee on November 15, and by the beginning of March I was sworn in!
Karen-Lee was very personable and reassuring, two qualities that I much appreciated, given my fears of dealing with INS.
