    • I recommend Carl Shusterman.

    I am an Internationally Educated Nurse petitioned by US employer and the Law Offices of Carl Shusterman helped me throughout the entire process of my IV application. His staff are exceptional especially Atty. Ellen Lee and Elsa Garcia, their Senior Paralegal. They are conscientious and very professional. Both were extremely thorough with regard to the instructions and the steps that I needed to take and the documents that I needed to submit to them and to NVC. Options were completely provided to me by them and it was not just about them telling me to do this and do that. They made me feel that I was in control of my application process and that they are there to assist and support me along the way. With their help, I got my visa approved and now, my family and I are on our way to fulfilling our American dreams. 5 Stars to this Law firm and to Ellen and Elsa, thank you very much for the assistance. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

    • 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 !

  7. 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.

    The law office of Carl Shusterman helped me when my employer abruptly changed my work condition.
    Attorney Raj Iyer and Judy Lu quickly resolved the concerned issues and helped me to receive the needed document so I don't need to worry about losing my P.R. status.
    Thank you so much for what you have done for me

For best results, hire the best.
