I retained Ms Szew in November 2014 to process my P3 work visa when a promoter friend of mine in Las Vegas recommended her to me. We spoke on the phone and although Andrea works out of LA she also comes to her Las Vegas office which was wonderful and convenient for me since I prefer to meet in person. I found Andrea and her staff to be very effective, efficient and professional. Her fees were competitive and affordable for the service ( I have being doing this for almost 20 years). Andrea or her legal assistant always stayed in touch and kept me informed and replied to me quickly when I had questions. As well as being excellent in her profession, Andrea is also a very lovely genuine woman who is easy to talk to and has a wonderful way about her with people which is very refreshing in this day and age when most people are so connected by technology only. I received my visa paperwork very quickly and am delighted to recommend Andrea without hesitation and will use her again next year and tell my friends in the industry also if they need visas or wish to make a change.

Working with Andrea has been great from the beginning to the end. She is very helpful, caring and knowledgeable. Her office is very efficient and her support staff is great. Before working with Andrea I worked with a different office, but nothing come close to the care and attention that I have received from Andrea's office. Working with her definitely gave me and my husband great peace of mind since we knew that everything was taken care of with utmost care and attention to details. I would highly recommend Andrea to anyone in need of an immigration attorney. With gratitude, Elena
Me and my wife, couldn't be happier, Andrea was the best lawyer we could possible have found, se¡he was very professional, always kept us informed, she guided us trough every step, and even predicted with extreme accuracy the times of the process, and above all, she was very friendly, and supportive, all and all, if your looking for a tax or immigration lawyer Andrea is your best choice.
Very intelligent and honest lawyer.I thought she Cared more about me and was easy to talk to.She's equally easily approachable.She had a vast amount of knowledge and gave me direct convincing answers whenever I was in doubt .
My journey of becoming a citizen is quite lengthy. Even though it is not too bumpy, it is not pretty either. I consider myself an educated consumer. I've had worked with attorneys ranging from immigrations, real estates, family's trust/will and other business related matters. Like everybody else, since I don’t know anyone in Vegas, I turned into the web and did my homework before selecting Andrea.
After reviewing online info, I scheduled several free consultations to get to know the lawyers. You should go for FREE consultations first (must see at least 3 lawyers) ask questions, and use inputs from this lawyer to check with others if you need to. You must look for someone with good experience (I prefer no less than 10 years), dedicated 100% to immigrations, responsive and easy to work with. My experience with other immigration lawyers in Vegas is ranging from unpleasant to average. I found some are cold which is ok. One of them is a bit inexperienced, but most of them seem to overcomplicate my case. I even found one lawyer had disciplinary action against him (Thanks to avvo for that. It was the only visit I didn’t know the name of the attorney as it wasn’t listed. Just went there because it was free).
Why Andrea? To be honest, I was concerned when I knew that she wasn't in Vegas full time. She was the very last attorney I met for a free consultation as I was about to select that "average" Las Vegas lawyer. My first meeting with Andrea went well. I saw a big difference between her and other lawyers I previously met. From the first meeting she makes me feel at ease. Through out the experience, I found her highly capable, very responsive (always get back to me same day and to me that is very critical when working with a lawyer). Some of you may want to compare fees. From my experience, her fee is competitive and not more than other less qualified lawyers in Vegas. On other note, I found that she is very friendly, genuine and kind. Immigration law is federal so having someone like Andrea working in a very busy jurisdiction like LA is a plus because she dealt with a lot of complex cases (my case is obviously simple but you still need to have people with experience like Andrea, regardless). When you want to talk to her, she is on the phone. When you need to have her presentation in Vegas, she is there. Again, I'm glad that I found Andrea via Avvo. My advice to everyone, do your homework. Meet several attorneys to compare your experience. At least schedule a session with Andrea to see if your experience with her is better than others before hiring her. If you don’t have the time to do “that homework”, you’ve already had me done that for you. Go with Andrea!
Andrea gave me a perfect overview, explanation and breakdown of the different visas options, and guided me to make the right choice. She has the talent to make things clear and simple and very Human , nothing is dramatic, any question you have she is always reachable which was the opposite of the other attorneys who i dealt with in the past. With her there is only solutions. On top of all of this she is so efficient and so fast, she put together my files in 10 days and I obtained my visa fifteen days later. It seems that my experience with her is not isolated, 100 % of the people that I know who has dealt with her , had the same words.
We can keep adding positive things about Andrea, I will always recommend her to anybody from business to immigration situation, because she also handles international business cases, and she represents big name clients and companies,her beauty of is that she treats everyone the same from known to unknown people.
She is my forever Attorney !!!
Andrea has assisted our company over the past 5 years and she has consistently been outstanding in her service. She is straight forward and has her client's interests as her number one focus. She is and has always been very reachable and honest about the options and outcomes for our employees. I highly recommend Andrea to not only companies but anyone who is looking for an exceptional attorney.
Andrea was absolutely fantastic in assisting me with my visa application - from beginning to end. She helped me decide which visa was best for me, drew out the information she needed, and put it all together. Continuous communication, patient yet persistent! Andrea made it a completely stress free and easy process.
Working with Andrea was a great experience. From our first discussions until the completion of my immigration I found her most helpful and professional. She is a very personable individual and I felt confident in her advice and appreciated all the support she offered through the process.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Andrea when we filed for a fiancee visa. She was knowledgeable about the process, communicated clearly about what to expect and what we needed to do, and executed everything in an accurate and timely manner. She even accompanied us to the final interview before my husband received his greencard. Now that my husband is eligible to apply for citizenship, we look forward to working with Andrea again.
