    • I recommend Carl Shusterman.

    My wife just received her green card and Law Offices of Carl Shusterman provided the best help one can ask for. Special "Thank You!! " to Attorney Ellen Lee and Judy Lu. Whenever we had questions they were expedient with their response. They always took the time to answer all of our questions and helped us to feel more comfortable with the whole process.
    We certainly will use this firm in the future again. They know their business very well !

  4. Had consultation with Jessica Chan on 2/4/15, haven't heard anything back since.

    • I do not recommend Carl Shusterman.

    I had a telephonic consultation with Jessica Chan about DAPA, she was not very knowledgeable about the possibilities of using advance parole as a way to adjust status (I'm married to a US citizen)under DAPA as has been done with DACA. I then asked about the possibility of applying for a U Visa as I was a victim of a very violent crime 10 years ago. She said she was not very familiar with this visa (even though she is listed on their website as having experience with both U and T visas) but that she would forward my documents to the gentleman at the firm who handled those cases. She let me know on 2/5 that she had forwarded it to him, but that he would be out of the office till the next week. I waited till 2/16 and emailed her back asking if she ever heard anything from him as I wanted to move forward with applying if he thought I had a case. I never heard anything back. I thought that Shusterman Law was the best of the best, however my experience with this firm has been quite disappointing. If they are too busy to take on more cases, then they shouldn't schedule consultations, or at the very least a courtesy email should be sent.

    • I recommend Carl Shusterman.

    If you are lost and need legal advice in immigration, Carl Shusterman legal firm is the right choice. They're service is both PROFESSIONAL and that they CARE. Paralegal Ana M. Cruz was very helpful to remind me of the dates and documents. Also we were very very lucky to have the chance of Ms Lee to represent us in our case, she was very funny, and most of all very kind. We ENJOYED!!! our time with Ms Lee.. If you have the chance to work with them, you will have a good time not stress out. We loved this firm.. we are extremely satisfied !!

    • I recommend Carl Shusterman.
    • I hired Carl 6-12 months ago.
    • Carl handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    “The Law Offices of Carl Shusterman" are the best. They are extremely professional. Attorney Raj Iyer and Sr. Paralegal Susan Zhang has immense knowledge in immigration matters. Their professional knowledge and endless efforts helped us in the approval of I-485 processing without any RFE.

    We had an initial consultation and walked to their office as afraid and not sure, but walked out totally confident and bold. We strongly recommend them to everyone. Once again would like to say thanks from the core of our heart for helping us sail through the immigration process.

    Thank you so much for what you have done for me
