Highly recommend Reza and his legal services. He is professional with extensive experience and knowledge, straight to the point and does not waste time, if he can help you he will tell you!
Joanna who helped us with the application/paperwork was excellent as well, very professional, thorough and prompt in returning calls/ emails.
I have a PT degree awarded abroad, a BS in Biology awarded in the US, and an MD.
I visited mr Athari to see if he could help me, he asked me some questions and within 3 minutes dismissed my case as non workable.
Mr Athari never even wondered what I had or where I was coming from. I probably have more education than him and was dismissed on the spot, I suspect because i don't look the type. I am Brazilian after all.
I went out the door within 5 minutes of my appointment with him never to come back, of course.
Clearly, I don't recommend this lawyer.
I can assure him, none of his family or loved ones will be dismissed by me and my services the same way he did with me.
Reza Athari has done the impossible for myself. We had a very complicated case a most lawyers promised us the moon and the stars but Mr. Athari was very clear and explained all the options/possibilities. Again he did the impossible and for that I am very thankful.
Wastes ur time, and for fact ur money, loves money, but no results, made a hundred and one promises, according to there lawyers we were an easy case, but denied, denied, denied. Also asking for more money, and doesn't keep informed. Avoids talking to clients on the phone even tho it's obviously a really important matter. I asked him a questions with respect and he said I was out of line. I thought he was a lawyer not a judgemental man about gender. He should do his job, an answer questions not be rude to women and then let the case go to shambles . Total waste of time . Plz look up more then reza
Reza was my lawyer in my immigration case, I wast my money, I denied every time because of little reasons. I feel he is trying to drag out my case for money. First I paid $3000 + Filing fee to file my case, second I paid $2000 + filing fee, now Reza wants $6000 + filing fee to take my case forward. Me and my wife worked very hard, first time we was denied because 1 document I missed, now Reza dragging my case. On my interview day Razas associate said to see him at immigration office. I asked him to review my file befor the interview, but he wouldn't, thats why I'm in this situation. I AM LOOKING GOOD LAWYER NOW TO REPRESENT ME IN IMMIGRATION COURT.
My husband and I hired Athari for immigration law. He doesn't think he has to answer your questions. He told me one time that he doesn't need to answer that I need to just do as he says. He is rude and very unprofessional. He is only out to get your money. He doesn't even represent you, he puts you off to his younger and unexperienced lawyers. You may hirer him but you will not get him. He will make your case as long as he can to get all the money he can.
Wow this is the craziest lawyer ever dealt with. He gives lawyers bad name. Paid him and never heard from him again for months.HE never return my calls not once. I finally asked for refund but he blew up on me and only refund me a very small part of my money enough for a dinner stating that he did work?? I am trying hard to be a Christian and not let evil test my faith.
I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS FIRM!!!! sTAY AWAY FROM REZA ATHARI.EVERYTHING SEEMS GREAT AT FIRST AND PROFESSIONAL BUT YOU ARE IN FOR A SURPRISE,!!!
I applied in August for my work permit and by the first week of December I had my work permit and was ready to work! He works with you through everything, and everyone at the firm is very helpful and nice. Great experience.
He helped me with my immigration case and Reza did a great job. The only thing I disliked is how him and his front desk clerks told me to take the wrong documents for when I went to go apply for a work permit, etc. Also it was such a hassle trying to find out how much I still owed from the financial/ accounting department. I don't see why I have to wait a week for them to get back to me with my remaining balance.
This man knows what he is doing and did a great job in my case i really recommend him to anyone who needs an immigration lawyer.
