Excellent lawyer. Very professional and efficient. Finished my case from start to finish in 11months. Adam tells you from the beginning what paperwork he needs and moves things very fast. Thank you for the great work.

Adam acted on behalf of myself and my family when we got academic jobs in Southern California. He was excellent, and responsive, and has a friendly and very knowledgeable staff. He came highly recommended, and I understand why. Everything went smoothly, and we knew from the outset we were in great hands. A first-rate lawyer!

Adam is a professional, and very responsible attorney.
He helped my wife and me with the immigration case.
He knew exactly what we needed to do, and when we had to take actions.
He responded all our questions within a few hours.
In addition, he would clearly tell you the worst scenario. However, that is not intended to scare you, but to inform you about the possibility. He would work hard for the best results.
In our time sensitive immigration case, he did all the communications with the government, and all the process could have been delayed without his help and dedication.
My wife and I really appreciate his great job.
If you have any immigration related issues, don't wait. Call Adam now.
You can have an initial consult with him for free.
Again, Adam is a very professional and reliable attorney.

We contacted Mr. Green for his assistant on marriage based green card application on June 27th 2013, a day after DOMA act was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. He helped us with his knowledgeable advice and document preparation (We were his first gay clients). Two months and three days after he submitted our application, we got the green card from USCIS (We were the first couples interviewed by the officer as well). Fantastic job!!! Thank you to his excellent job.

If you are seeking an experienced, professional, and trust worthy attorney then Adam Green is an excellent choice. Adam did a magnificent job on our case and exceeded our expectations. Adam Green is not only a top notch attorney he is a wonderful man. We would recommend Adam to our closest friends and family.

A great experience working with Adam on my mother's Green Card application. I would not hesitate to recommend him for your immigration needs. He provided everything we expected: diligent, knowledgable and a great attention to detail.... and he is a real nice guy to boot.

Adam is one of the best immigration lawyers in the country. We are lucky he handled the green card process for me and my wife. I accepted a faculty position before officially completing the Ph.D. degree which made our case a special one. Adam was very knowledgeable as he guided us through the process. He explained in detail all steps at the beginning, and again as we went through each step. He was always friendly as he answered our questions. When we decided to go for vacation outside the US before obtaining the green cared, he gave us the right advice on how to re-enter the U.S. The whole process went very smoothly and we received the green cards faster than we expected. I definitely recommend Adam to anyone who is applying for permanent residence in the U.S.

Mr. Green have worked on two different cases of mine in different periods of time, and on both cases he exceeded my expectations. Needles to say that he is a good listener, understanding, and courteous. What I appreciated the most was that he is straight forward and very informative. If you are looking for efficiency and trustworthiness, then Adam Green is the right one for you. I was lucky to be referred to him 5 years ago, and I could not have accomplish any progress without his effective work.

When I moved from Canada to take a faculty position in the USA, my son and I encountered several problems in the visa process that prohibited us from traveling outside the country or my son from working within it. From the moment I contacted Adam Green to help us with our difficulties, the situation improved tremendously and we quickly obtained our permanent residency (green cards). Not only did Adam quickly resolve our difficulties and keep on top of every step in the process, he made sure my son and I followed through with all our requirements in a timely manner. Overall, Adam's handling of our immigration was excellent. He is an expert on immigration law and I found him to be both professional and ethical in his dealings with my son and me. I only wish I had contacted Adam as soon as I was hired. I I had, I would have avoided many problems and saved a substantial amount of money and time. My recommendation is for anyone who is immigrating to the USA: call Adam Green as soon as you can.

Adam is the best attorney I have come to know. He is thorough, very knowledgeable and friendly. He helped me with filing my Green Card via family sponsorship. Also, when I graduated from the University he helped me with H-1 B visa. Coming from India I know how hard it is understand the American immigration process. Adam did all the work for me and got my permits without any problems.
If you want to be greened -see Adam.
Posted by Marc, a Immigration client, Flag
Adam is the best! I've talked a LOT of Immigration Attorneys in L.A and he's definitely the most knowledgeable and efficient one I've met.
He helped me getting a green card and the process was so fast and easy... I STRONGLY RECOMMEND ADAM.
Posted by Anastasia, a Immigration client, Flag
Mr. Green handled my and my husband's H1B visa applications. Compared to other lawyers, who previously handled our visa preparations, Mr. Green was able to get our visas in record time. He is also very organized and meticulous. He does not sugar coats the situation, but he is very realistic, and gives you a worse case scenario. But with his experience, the outcome is always positive! We had such a great experience that I would recommend him without any reservations!
Posted by Yvette, a Immigration client, Flag
Adam Green and his associates did a fantastic job getting me my green card. Before starting Adam submitted a detailed quote of costs that I could take to my employer - there were no further additions. The process took about 1 year, despite the fact I needed to go through additional security measures. Throughout the entire process Adam kept me updated on what was happening and whenever he needed new items he was very specific about what he needed and conveyed all that information very clearly. Adam also was very responsive to questions I had throughout the process. Working with Adam was an absolute pleasure and I am very happy to had him working for me on this. Thank you!!

Mr. Green helped me to get my green card about 6 years ago. He worked with my employer directly to prepare all the paperwork, and all I had to do was obtaining the recommendation letters and filling out some forms. The whole process was completely hustle-free, which is important for a busy person like me. So this year when I decided to apply for citizenship I came to Mr. Green again.
Mr. Green is very knowledgeable and detail-oriented. He gave us very detailed instructions on what documents to prepare, what to expect at the interview, and even when to arrive at the interview site and where to park our car. He also has good working relationship with the immigration service. My wife's interview was originally scheduled one week before mine, so Mr. Green contacted the immigration service and had my wife's interview rescheduled to the same day as mine without incurring any additional delay. Just like my green card application, our citizenship application process is smooth and easy, and for that we have Mr. Green to thank for.

Adam handled my Green Card back in 2001. When I applied for citizenship ten years later, the application and the interview were remarkably "problem-free" due to Adam's careful handling of my Green Card application. In fact, no questions whatsoever were raised during my interview regarding my LPR status and how it was granted. The officer had reviewed my file and already determined that everything was in order as she liked to see it. I had hired a different attorney to represent me for the naturalization application because I now live on the East Coast and wanted easy access to my lawyer. My new attorney also commented on how much smoother a citizenship application is when the underlying paperwork was prepared properly the first time. So kudos to Adam from a satisfied client, another immigration attorney, and a USCIS officer!
I'll just add that Adam is not only personable but remarkably responsive. I've never had to wait for him to return a call and have never had to call twice with the same question. He's earned his professional reputation.
Posted by Milton, a Immigration client, Flag
Five years ago, Adam processed my "green" card. When the time came to apply for my citizenship the logical choice was him. He did a fantastic job, put my anxieties and trepidations to rest and walked me through the whole process in a professional and expert manner. His attention to detail and thoroughness were superb and helped in the process; his staff was helpful as well. I Getting my citizenship took 5 months and could have taken less if it had not been for a business related trip outside the US. Double kudos!!

“The Law Offices of Adam Green was just GREAT in what they do. Mr. Green is a reliable and trustworthy attorney. I cannot express how thankful I am! Despite the backlash against immigration and ever more complex rules governing legal admission to and naturalization in the United States, Mr. Green was able to help me obtain a green card in less than 9 months. I highly recommend Mr. Green.”

I found Mr. Green to be very Knowledgeable about immigration laws and processes. I really did not have to ask him much...he told me the exactly beforehand how to proceed in a very organized manner. Also, he is very personable...that is why I went to him for my Naturalization application although I no longer work in Los Angeles area!

Did my H1B, Green Card, and Citizenship. All went smoothly without any delays or issues. In fact, better and faster than expected! Yes, it's expensive (like all lawyers are) but I thought these are the things that need to be done right, and so I was willing to spend the money. And I don't regret it at all. Also, very friendly!
Posted by Jenny, a Immigration client, Flag
We first used Adam when we moved to the US and his practice organized my H1-B and our green cards.
We hired Adam Green recently to manage the naturalization process for our family. We hit a couple of administrative bumps along the way and Adam was fantastic. He dealt directly with USCIS on our behalf and got everything resolved very quickly. Hiring Adam was money well spent.
We enjoyed working with Adam. Not only is he thorough, knowledgeable and professional but he was also fun to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending Adam to others.
Posted by Connie, a Immigration client, Flag
I honestly believe that Adam is the best immigration lawyer there is to find. He is professional, helpful, proactive and knows all the laws and regulations well. After USCIS decided that my I-751 application required an interview, I decided to contact Adam. I was really unsatisfied and disappointed with my previous attorney and felt like there was no way my case was ever going to be approved. However, after talking to Adam, he made me feel hopeful again. He was always easy to reach and quick to respond my emails. In addition, we went over again and again what we needed to do during the interview and he provided me with a very clear picture on how this process will generally proceed. If it weren't for Adam, I honestly don't believe I would ever get my case approved and receive my green card. I highly recommend anyone in California with immigration needs to contact Adam. He is the best!

Yesterday I received my green card in the mail. It was insanely fast (less than a year from the start of the application) and incredibly easy. Why? Because of Adam Green, my lawyer, and I just wanted to write to recommend him. He has been so great from day one, always on top of the case, very knowledgeable, organized, prompt, incredibly kind, sensitive to the fact that getting one's green card is a very emotional process, explaining everything, taking care of things immediately as they arose...I can't say enough good things about him (and his wonderful assistant). I have friends who have gone through the same process in other academic institutions with other lawyers, and it has been a much less easy, pleasant, smooth process for them. They have had to do a lot of work themselves, have gotten very unclear advice, and the process has taken a much longer time. I still can't believe how easy, painless, and even pleasant this was.
Posted by Khaled Alomari, a Immigration client, Flag
Mr. Green is the best attorney I've ever hired! I'd tried to get a green card in many ways through many law offices; Mr. Green was able to get me a green card through employment in 8 months!!! Who can beat that?! Currently Mr. Green is helping me in another immigration case, and I do trust that he will do a great job again.
Posted by Cheryl, a Immigration client, Flag
In 2010 my husband applied for me (Canadian), to get a Green Card for me to live in the US. After 18 months of bureaucracy holdups, we decided to call Adam Green for advice. Adam advised us to begin a new application. With his knowledge and expertise he guided and supported us through the whole process at every stage. Within two months I had a work permit and within 3 months I had my Green Card. He was incredible! I have dealt with many lawyers during the past 20 years or more and I can honestly say, I have never encountered one as knowledgeable, efficient, supportive and practical as Adam.
Posted by a Immigration client, Flag
I was referred to Adam Green by my colleague who was very satisfied with this lawyerâ€™s work and had her immigration paperwork done fast and without any problems.
Our experience with Adam was fantastic as well. He is very knowledgeable, thorough, and very professional. We never encountered any problems. Thanks to Adam, my PERM, I-140, and both my and my wifeâ€™s I-485 were approved quickly. Adam was irreplaceable.
We highly recommend him for anyone who is looking for an experienced immigration lawyer!

Adam is simply the best. It was a superb experience as he guided us through the green card process.
Posted by Mira F., a Immigration client, Flag
Adam is, without exaggeration, the best in the business. He won for us one of the toughest immigration cases: the waiver of the J-1 visa based on exceptional hardship. This is an incredibly difficult case not in the least because it is a two-step process: the waiver needs to be approved by USCIS and then by the State Department. The latter weighs the hardship case against policy implications and in the vast majority of cases declines the waiver (even if USCIS renders a positive recommendation). Our case had a 1% chance of approval and the particular J-1 visa we had had not seen a positive recommendation over the past 5 years.
We knew the case was incredibly difficult so we consulted many attorneys before we selected Adam. Frankly, most attorneys sounded very negative on our chances, most shied away from taking on the case, including a few that (to our surprise) are ranked very highly by avvo.com. We went with Adam because he was the most prepared of all: he knew the law inside and out (while most attorneys had to consult their books right in front of us), he was pro-active from the beginning laying out a course of action including an incredibly detailed list of all documents needed. He had a clear plan from the very beginning on how to approach this case and instructed us step-by-step on what to do. He set us up with a family counsel professional whose detailed analysis on our family background, dynamics, health, and culture, played a large role in winning the case.
What we liked the most about Adam is that he is always accessible and easily reachable; if he was not available or away on business/conferences, he would always call back/email within 24 hours. He always kept us in the loop and patiently explained the process in each step. Adam is determined to win and he will fight hard for your case. We are convinced that his plan, determination, and hard work was the main reason for us winning the case. He called/emailed immigration and the State Department on many occasions to make sure they had received all the needed documents, to update them with more recent information and advocate for the case. This is very uncommon since most attorneys (and we've had our share during this process) would lay back and wait rather than proactively work on the case.
In short, Adam is a brilliant attorney, with a wealth of experience, and vast knowledge about immigration law. He is honest, direct, determined, and very courteous. He is so highly regarded in the business that he consults for the vast majority of Universities in Southern/Central California and Ivey league schools in the East Coast (including Harvard and Columbia University). He is now working on our green card. We have recommended him to many friends and will continue to do so. Also, please don't be deceived by the high ranking of some other attorneys in this webpage; we have talked to almost all of them and Adam has them all beat hands down.

Adam is very accurate, efficient and effective in getting any paper work filed and successfully making a case. He also took care of my couple of referrals. Definitely best immigration lawyer ever.

I have read through some of the previous reviews and totally agree
what they said - we had similar nice experiences.
I am fortunate to have Adam and his office to handle my Labor
Certification, 140, and finally, 485 for my wife and I. He is patient,
infinitely knowledgeable and very professional. He answered my e-mails
and phone calls quickly, gave me good advice on the applications and
all related issues.
Adam is a very kind person, genuinely care for his clients. It took
more than 4 years before our priority date became current in the
Visa Bulletin; as our cases lasted longer than anyone had expected,
Adam brought us the much needed peace of mind, we trust him completely.
From time to time we had to deal with certain issues, including two RFEs
for 485; Adam and Paul handled these perfectly, and, there had been no extra charge beyond the initial payment 4 years ago.
Overall, we highly recommend Adam and Paul for your immigration needs.

Adam is the most competent immigration attorney that I've ever had. He is approachable, responsive and very very knowledgeable in helping us satisfy our immigration needs. He replied out emails, usually in less an hour, and he always returned out phone calls within a day. His extensive experience and knowledge makes him a trustworthy and top rated attorney in the industry. We highly recommend him to anyone who needs immigration lawyer. You can't go wrong with him

I first came to know Mr. Adam Green when I attended his lectures on immigration to international students and scholars at the university where I was an international graduate student. During the course of my graduate study at the university for ten years, I had attended Mr. Greenâ€™s lectures at the beginning of my study, in the middle, and at the end of my study respectively. I was very impressed by Mr. Greenâ€™s lectures because he was very knowledgeable about the immigration matters he was talking about, and also he had a wonderful sense of humor. Upon my graduation with my doctorate in 2005, I was hired as a faculty member by a private university and at that point I hired Mr. Adam Green as my immigration attorney to handle my employment based immigration situations. Mr. Green has handled my H1B and also employment based Green Card application cases. In my experience of working with him, Mr. Adam Green is an immigration attorney with an exceptional level of competency and integrity! And I feel profoundly grateful to have Adam as my immigration attorney.
Mr. Green is a highly efficient, competent, professional, and honorable attorney. Whenever I had a question and inquiry about immigration issues, he always provided me with answers very quickly and competently. He went extra miles to answer my emails speedily even during weekends and nights, especially when I was in urgent situations. I was often amazed by the fact that Adam was able to understand my complicated situations so accurately and keenly, given that Adam and I are in different states and without face-to-face communications. Furthermore, Adam has the phenomenal ability to turn a very complicated employment based immigration situation into a positive immigration outcome. In my case, Adam did that! I am very happy with the positive outcome of my employment based immigration case, thanks to Adam!
Besides his high level of competency and professionalism, Mr. Adam Green is also an attorney with enormous integrity. In dealing with complex immigration issues, Adam provides his client with advice as well as assistance that works for the best interests of his client. And in my case, Adam provided that to me! When I was going through a very tough situation involving immigration based on employment with my previous employer, Adam could have â€˜walked awayâ€™ easily, but he didnâ€™t, instead, he continued to work with me as my immigration attorney through the storm. I want to express my deep appreciation and gratitude to Adam!
When I have Mr. Adam Green as my immigration attorney, I know I donâ€™t need to look elsewhere for an immigration attorney. Adam is an excellent, excellent immigration attorney! I am deeply grateful to Adam for his help with my employment based immigration case.

My wife and I have dealt with and consulted Adam Green for more than 2 years regarding immigration to the US. My wife's work visa was approved and processed within specific committed time frames while we were in our home country. I arrived in the US with an H4 visa, as a spouse.
I had an urgent need to get economically active and also earn an income for the family. This process required me to find appropriate employment, according to qualifications/experience, and a company to sponsor the process. I was fortunate to find a suitable possition with a great company. However, I still needed a status change from my H4 to an H1.
I am in a different field of work than my wife and my visa conversion required additional time, work and effort for final approval. I am happy to say that my H1 visa was opproved earlier this week. Adam Green drove this process to ensure a possitive outcome.
I have a few final comments.
1. Adam Green will act in your best interst at all times and is very knowledgeable in his field of expertise.
2. He is extremely responsive to any queries and submission of documentation.
3. His documentation is "sharp" and accurate.
4. He is under instruction to do our Green Card application.
5. Apart from my personal review, Adam Green is highly regarded and recommended by large organisations

I have sought the services of Adam Green to assist with faculty immigration issues in my current position and while employed at my former position. At all times, Adam provided knowledgeable, efficient help for our office and for the faculty members we were working with.

Life can be complicated enough without having the added burden of your
immigration status constantly hovering over you. Having dealt with
countless â€˜lifeâ€™ issues before applying for permanent resident status,
I was, needless to say, somewhat daunted by the idea of my entire
future pending on this complicated application process. Luckily,
however, I was referred to Adam who took on that burden, and those
worries, for me. After the first meeting, I had everything laid out
clearly, and for the first time in over a decade of being an
immigrant, I felt secure about my future. Aside from knowing the
system inside and out, he was reassuring and friendly and went the extra
mile to ensure my case was approved. Some people may take that for
granted, but for me, I acknowledge that I owe him my future.

Adam Green is a wonderful attorney. He works with you on an individual basis, never loses his patience, answers silly questions, and is extremely knowledgeable about the field. He understands the system and the best way to navigate the labyrinth of INS doctrine.
Posted by Sree, a Immigration client, Flag
I had Mr. Adam Green and Mr. Paul Herzog for two separate cases. First my H1B in 2005 and my Green Card processing in 2006-07. I chose them since Adam was so kind to help me out patiently several times prior when I was a student and employee from 2001-04. He never charged me a dime for all those phone consultations. He previously did some work for the University of Idaho on some immigration matters, and my immigration advisor referred him to me once I was in a problem.
His H1B work was outstanding. He got it to for me in a week when I needed it in an emergency and charged me reasonable.
Hence, I rehired him for my Green Card case. He and Paul jointly worked on my Green Card case, and once again it was outstanding. I had so little to do and they did it effortlessly to get me the LC and 140 approvals. They were also very prompt in attending to my RFEs for my 485 processing.
The best part of Adam and Paul is that they don't charge you a DIME for any queries over phone after they take the initial payment. Contrast it with many attorneys I hear online who never bother to talk to us after getting paid or charge a consultation fee. Whether it is email or phone, Adam or Paul is always there to answer if the other isn't available.
I have a lot of respect for Adam's knowledge and his words. He knows the ins and outs of immigration law. I feel quite secure as long as I have him as my attorney, since I believe in his knowledge, accuracy and his reputation. Whatever he told me so far turned out 100% true in the end.
I admire Paul's personality, his cool nature and easy going attitude. He is very polite, understanding and seems pretty knowledgeable too.
Overall I rate the Law Offices of Adam Green highly and strongly recommend that prospective H1B and GC clients hire them for very efficient service.
Note that I've never met them personally and all our consultations have been just over phone and email so far. That was always an advantage for me, not a disadvantage. I believe they have several clients all over the country.
They answer emails even during the weekends, and believe me even at nights!! Many times I talked to them on Saturdays!
Oh and one more thing. To give you real examples as to how reasonable and honest they are -- I offered Mr. Green recently that I will hire him again to do my GC work all over again, since another company wanted to hire me with a different job specification. Mr. Green advised me not to do it again, since I was so close to the GC approval. So he was turning down a chance for making $5000 more and put my benefit in front. Something I didn't expect from an attorney!
One final advise -- DO NOT go to the big law firms with 15-20 attorneys. I never got proper attention from them, and always demanded money ($250 per consultation) even to consider my case. With that rate, I owe Mr. Green about $15,000 now. Although I have a lot of respect for attorneys like Sheela Murthy and Ron Gotcher who do excellent service to the public, based on personal experience and hearsay, the big law firms do not give the kind of individual attention that law firms like and in particular, THE Law offices of Adam Green.
OK now I'll stop here so the readers don't think Adam is paying me to write this review :-) But honest to God, hire Adam and Paul -- they are the best immig attorneys your money can buy.
