It was just my luck to have found Leon, and I've been thanking my lucky stars ever since. Personable, knowledgeable, he and his team made what is really a scary experience a breeze. We were given valuable advise every step of the way, when something didn't go exactly as we expected (hostile immigration officer at the interview), and slightly longer delays, Leon and his team fought for us until the issues were resolved. I cannot say enough good things about Leon and his firm, I will recommend him to anyone that's looking for a great attorney and an excellent firm to represent them.

Let me first start off by saying that as an LPR with a Federal Felony, I was in a precarious situation. The nature and details of my case potentially exposed me to being Inadmissable and even Deportable according to Immigration Law--many would have seen my record as an Aggravated Felony (non-violent). I grew up in the United States, and it was the only home I knew, and the thought of potentially being removed was unsettling to say the least. And as the expiration date of my LPR was approaching, I knew I had to deal with this issue sooner than later. I decided to go shopping for an Immigration Attorney.
I visited 3 attorneys before meeting Leon Hazany, 2 of which had more than 20 years of Immigration experience. I wont name names, but lets just say that all three had told me the same thing--"You are an Ag Fel, and your options are extremely limited." One of them in fact began speaking to me as if I deserved to suffer and be booted. Never mind that the crime was commited nearly 10 years ago when I was young, stupid, and reckless-- I was scum according to this guy. Needless to say, I was winded, hopeless, and defeated. And then I met Leon.
For starters, Leon listened to my entire story and treated me with dignity and respect, and made me feel the way I had always felt--someone that just messed up in life trying to make amends and move forward. But the thing that really got me interested was how he was processing my situation. I could see the gears in his head turning, weighing out options and potential avenues in handling my case. He didnt have that "uh-oh" look, but rather, he had the look of a problem solver. After reviewing some preliminary documents from my criminal case and recalling some of his recent cases, he proposed something that nearly floored me-- "Lets get you naturalized"
I thought.. "either this guy is incredibly reckless with balls of steel but brains of dirt, or he actually thinks this can happen." I couldnt get myself to make that call immediately, so I decided to call him back with my decision. On the way home, I called countless friends, family, and even the previous lawyers I met about this bold idea, and EVERYONE, I mean EVERYONE, was against it. The previous lawyers even went as far as to say that this decision would get me deported, and that it was legal suicide. But I guess Leon's boldness rubbed off... I figured, sooner or later, I will have to face this... I might as well do it now while I am still young and able to rebound in another part of the world (if necessary), and do it with the one person who was willing to battle it out with me rather than postpone the inevitable, being advised by someone encouraging me to lay low and hope for the best. And with that, the journey began, retainer, contract, and all.
Well its been 8 months or so since that decision, and I now have my US passport. What was once thought to be impossible by many has proven to be not only possible, but it has been achieved. The journey hasnt been perfectly smooth sailing, as there were many hitches and bumps on the way, but there was never a time where I felt that Leon wouldnt be there for me regardless, and I dont mean that just because he was retained. I mean that as in I always felt that he had my best interest in mind, and I trusted him to help me navigate through whatever was ahead, whether good or bad. And at the end of the day, I walked away from this journey feeling as if we had gone through this ordeal together, and it is one that I will never forget both literally and figuratively.
I just want to say Thank You Leon for being the Professional that you are. Your keen ability to see things from a unique perspective and to present that perspective well with knowledge, experience, and tenacity makes you the best in the field. You have balls of steel AND brains of, well, you... and I mean that with every ounce of respect, admiration, and sincerity.

I hightly recommend Mr. Hazany. I met with 4 laywers before I met with Mr. Hazany for my free consultation. Right that day I new he was going to be my laywer to handle my case , he was very proffesional and explain to me step by step how he will handle my case. He gave me hope and the option nobody else did. I can not explain how happy and grateful I am. It took 2 months for my work permit, 1 month after I received my interview appointment and my permanent resident approval 6 months after I will say a total of 9 months. This is the laywer you want to go to, he will do everything possible and I can not forget how proffesional and helpful his staff is!!! Thank You!!!

Mr. Leon is a knowledgeable and smart person. He and his team really know what they are doing. From an early stage of our case, at the time of our "cutting-edge" consultation time with him, we became very much aware of the outcome of our case. We really amazed by the way he introduced our case, helped us express ourselves, and filled us with trust and confidence through the whole process. Without his help, my family and I would not be able to get our asylum approval. If you want to invest your money, go for your case with Law Firm Leon Hazany. Thank you!

I went to Mr. Hazany for a Request for Evidence response regarding DACA. I talked to about
six attorneys but I found Mr. Hazany to be the most knowledgeable and trustworthy. He is
detailed and will explain all you need to know about your case as well as answer your questions.
Communication was also superb, you can just send him or his assistant an e-mail or phone call
and they respond fast. The staff is nice and will gladly sit with you to discuss your case.
They have an initial free consultation with one of the lawyers and I suggest you take advantage of it. In the end the RFE was approved. I would definitely hire him again. Highly recommended.

At my first consultation mr. Hazany explained my case and how everything works faster and 70% more clear then the attorney who I've had consultation before. Leon defiantly knows what his doing and he's really good at this, I didn't even think of trying somebody else after that first consultation, he was able to explain some important law terminolagy in simple average people(immigrant) language. The process is simple and exiting. If you follow his instructions you are going to sucseed in your case, that's what I've learned on my personal experience! Defiantly going to use mr. Hazany's service in next two years.

I had experienced continuous problems with the US Immigration in attempting to get my green card. It seemed to be a hopeless nightmare that would never end. I contacted and met with Mr. Leon Hazany and explained the problem. He was very understanding of my situation and assured me that there was no reason that should prevent me from obtaining my green card. He was very clear on the steps that would have to be taken to solve the problem. Everything went very smoothly in working with Mr. Hazany. He submitted all the necessary documents in a very professional and expedient manner. After a relatively short time, I received notice that I would be getting my green card. After getting my green card, Mr. Hazany encouraged me to move forward and apply for my citizenship. He provided me with the information needed to obtain the materials to prepare for the required exam. Before taking the exam, I met with Mr. Hazany and he tutored me by asking me questions that I would be tested on. On the day of my interview and exam, Mr. Hazany was so gracious as to come to the USCIS office and sat with me while waiting to be interviewed and to take my exam. He helped me to relax and gave me confidence. I was able to complete my interview and exam successfully. I have Mr. Hazany to thank for helping me to achieve my citizenship into the US. I am forever thankful to this very kind man. I most sincerely recommend Mr. Hazany.

Mr. Hazany did an excellent job in obtaining my green card. Before I had applied twice with USCIS in attempting to remove the conditional status and both times were unsuccessful.
When first meeting with Mr. Hazany, I felt that he would complete the process successfully. He has a way of instilling confidence that I have not experienced previously. He always conducts himself as an absolute gentleman, while at the same time maintaining the highest professional level.
I highly recommend Mr. Hazany.

Mr. Leon Hazany and his team treated my immigration case with utmost importance. He is a very knowledgeable and professional immigration attorney. I have recommended Mr. Hazany to many of my family members for their immigration concerns.

In March 2011 my wife and I decided to hire Leon Hazany as our attorney to help us with our immigration case. From our initial consultation, we decided he was the right attorney to represent us. Leon discovered a detail on the first day. A detail that had been overlooked by other attorneys. After we agreed to hire him, he immediately explained to us the entire process and what to expect. We filed for permanent residency and work permit based on marriage to an American citizen on March 17, 2011. The work permit was granted on June 7, 2011. On August 17, 2011, we had our interview. Leon accompanied us, and was thoroughly prepared. After 20 minutes, I was granted Conditional Permanent Residency. Leon was very professional throughout the entire process. We could always rely on Leon answering questions or concerns in detail and promptly. He was very respectful, understanding, supportive and friendly. Whenever we met with him, we never felt rushed. The same experience can be said of his staff. They were always polite and inviting. After 20 years of being in limbo, and not knowing what my future would be like, I could not be happier with my decision to hire Leon. I am now able to visit my sister after 20 years of separation. He is a top notch lawyer. I would hire him again without hesitation, and would highly recommend his firm to anyone.
Thank you, Leon!

I've been in the US for 6 years on a foreigner visa, and have dealt with all kinds of immigration issues. Leon Hazany is one of the best lawyers I've ever worked with. He truly cared about my case and situation, and always delivered excellent quality of work. He's experienced, knowledgeable and hard-working, and offered a lot of valuable insights to my case that I didn't usually find in other lawyers' services. What's more, his professionalism made me feel so much more confident and powerful in winning my case. I 100% recommend him to anyone who needs immigration legal services!

kudos to Hazany and Associates... I hight recommend Atty Hazany to everyone who will have an immigration issues... Infact he's handling my family's cases.
He's really Intelligent, Very Knowledgeable and really Creative with my case... take note all cases are different and you really need a lawyer who have the ability to do all creativeness. I've dealt with more than 5 lawyers and they didn't do any good for me, all there was misleading information and false hopes... with Atty Hazany you'll feel confident and he'll be there for you all the way. I am really lucky to find Atty Hazany, he helped me and is still there for my family to help. More power to you and ......... THANK YOU!

I'm a former Leon Hazany's client and recently got my green card thanks to him.It sure was a long and stressful proses but it was worth it at the end.
I had a very complicated case from the beginning with a prior deportation order.
I started the whole proses at the firm Leon used to work for. I was able to get an E-2 visa at that time. I contacted him again, now on his own firm, before my visa expired and he was able to fix my status to permanent resident.
I'm very happy with his work, he is a very dedicated, trustworthy and hardworking lawyer. I would recommend him to anybody that needs a good lawyer.

Leon Hazany is an awesome attorney; he handled my immigration matter quickly and efficiently. He treats you with dignity and is there for whatever questions or concerns you might have. I like the fact that Leon is always just one phone call away; it’s not your normal attorney’s office, where you deal with legal assistants half the time. He will go above and beyond to get the results you want. Leon will handle your case from start to finish; there is no middle man involved. He is super professional and his services are incomparable. I strongly recommend Mr. Hazany for all of you immigration matters. Thanks to Leon, I’m now a permanent resident!! Kudos Lean Hazany!!!

I´ve known the Law Firm of Leon Hazany for almost 2 years now. I´m extremely happy with the service and professionalism that I have received from Leon. He helped me to legalize my status in the U.S and to get a work visa in a very efficient way. Also he gave me assistance of every kind with my doubts and concerns throughout the whole process. Everytime I needed him, he was always there to help and clarify every doubt, even when I was out of the country. He always had quick replies and excellent, honest communication with me. He has all the professional skills to solve any kind of problem, but also human qualities that make you trust him and know that you are in good hands. I´m very grateful for all of his advice and help. I would recommend him 100%.

I came accross Leon through the internet and after emailing him (on a weekend) he quickly replied to my email regarding my husband's case. Communication between lawyer and client was always very important to me and my husband and Leon always kept his word about quickly getting back to us anytime we needed him. My husband was in county jail with an immigration hold. Leon was honest about the risks and what we needed to do in order to get him out and back home. The first day he was taken by I.C.E. he was released by noon with Leon's help. We had to fight his case in front of a judge and Leon was extremely knowledgable as to how to win our case and was very professional and comforting so that we would not be nervous. Our case was won and a few months after my husband recieved his residency. We greatly appreciate everything that Leon has done for our family and recommend his services to anyone and everyone!

Leon and Anish are the best! Always on top of things and doing what seemed to me to be impossible! They work hard for you and seems like they never stop! Never do they put you off in a drawer like so many other attorneys do, leaving you wondering, leaving you hanging on a thread not caring about you! They do care and it shows. Thanks for all you dedication to seeing that our rights are not trampled upon!

Leon and our family goes back few years , he started out handling a small case,but ended up taking charge for an unfortunate matter that happened in our family, call it destiny, he was right there to support us through thick times. A very down to earth and sharp minded human being ,with caring touch which is hard to find in a lawyer's coat.
