    I've known Yasser both personally and professionally for several years, and can honestly say he's as good of an attorney as he is human being. I have referred many clients to him and several have gone out of their way to thank me for doing so. I know Yasser cares deeply for his clients and is passionate about Immigration Law. If I ever needed an immigration attorney, Yasser would be my first and only choice. I endorse this lawyer.
