I just called today to get some information regarding getting a visa for one of my clients, and she was acting like she was not interested to take even 5 min on the phone, and just want to give general information that are also available online, she looks like looking for BIG CASES to get money, not helpful and professional at all.

In January this year my long-time girlfriend and I decided to get married when she was visiting from Argentina. When my wife returned to Buenos Aires I went to an immigration clinic downtown to have them go over our permanent residence application we had prepared. To our devastation we learned that my wife, an Argentine citizen, would not be able come live with me or even use her tourist visa to see me until the year long process was complete. Even though I had some immigration knowledge and experience I was not familiar with this technicality. I contacted Galorah to seek a second opinion.
Galorah met with me and confirmed that this was correct and offered to help. I met with her a few more times to discuss the process and our options in proceeding. Once my wife and I decided on how to go forward Galorah BENEVOLENTLY AND SELFISHLY TOOK OUR CASE PRO-BONO FOR FREE!
Not only is Galorah a lawyer with a truly great soul, she is knowledgeable and experienced in her field. She explained the filing process to us concisely, additionally noting the details of how the process functions in the real world as opposed to how it appears to work on paper. For example, she portrayed her expertise in the field by explaining that throughout the process different administrations routinely in practice ask for documents multiple times, when however, on the filing instructions they state that documents will be asked for on one occasion only.
Additionally, her responsiveness also conveys her compassion and high quality level of counsel. Galorah has always been very quick getting back to us. Whenever we send her an email she usually responds the same day or the next day. Once we gave her the documents necessary for the application she promptly reviewed them and filed the application for us.
Having Galorah as our lawyer has put us both at ease. We know what to expect in the coming months and are 100% confident that my wife’s application will be accepted. Recently, we received our receipt for our application and are excited to finish the application process with Galorah advocating for us.
I highly recommend Galorah. From conversing with her about immigration law it is apparent to me that she is knowledgeable about many facets of the field. She helps all types of client and is truly a wonderful lawyer and compassionate human being

I first started working with Galorah about 3 years ago. I have never had any prior experience working with a lawyer, and was very nervous to get the immigration process started. She has been amazing throughout the whole process. I trust her completely and feel very comfortable having her handle my case. I sometimes get very impatient, and she answers my emails asap when I need her. I will definitely come back and work with her again if needed and will recommend her to everybody!

My wife and I came to Galorah less than 6 months ago for help with my wife's Green Card application and adjustment of status.
Galorah was professional, knowledgeable, courteous and personable. She got my wife her Green card in record time! Not to mention all at a fee that was more than reasonable! I would and will recommend her to anyone with Immigration issues.

Atty Galorah is very professional and takes your case very personal. She is very interested in helping and it is very obvious she is passionate about her work. Her fees are sooooo competitive and yet she gets the work done. In summary she is an entirely awesome person, I will recommend her any time.

I hired Galorah after a recommendation from a good friend of mine to get my citizenship and she was professional and effective from the first minute! I received my citizenship quite easily and quickly. I then needed her again to help me get permanent residency for my new wife and she handled that with ease as well. My wife is now a permanent resident of the US and we couldn't have done it without Galorah.
In fact, my wife received her acceptance letter within 3 months of application! I have heard of this taking as long as 6 months in some circumstances. Galorah really made things easy for us.
Galorah is professional, knowledgeable, and above all capable. My wife and I are so happy that Galorah was there to guide us and make what would normally be such a painful experience feel so easy!

I do not want to give you too many details and bore you. But when I called Galorah for help, my mom was held at the airport and not allowed to enter the US. Unfortunately, she spent the night and the weekend at jail before she was deported.
After a crazy weekend Galorah called me to see how I was doing. Out of the thousands of lawyers I had spoken to, over the weekend, there was ONE that called to see how I was doing. She didn’t even know me. She said she wanted to help me. A lot of people say that but a few mean it.
Since my mom had been deported, I asked Galorah to help me with my brother. Over the course of several years, not one lawyer was willing to help me with his case. But what do you know? Galorah had everything done and his green card IN HIS HANDS before he was 18 (which was very critical)! Not only did she meet with us regularly, she went to Family Court as well as Immigration Court with us.
When Galorah says you will get to a progress point with an “X” amount of time, she MEANS “X” amount of time! She does not claim to be able to do something unless she really can. And if she is unsure, she WILL BE HONEST about it.
Since then, I have referred her to several different people and with no time, my aunt was able to come to the US as well.
I can ramble forever! But I will not. Just know that if Galorah says she can help you, then you are in great hands. Trust her. I have and forever will continue to recommend her to everyone!

Galorah is my immigration lawyer. She takes care of my case very efficiently. I am satisfied with all her work. I am lucky and grateful to have her to handle my case. She is very professional, always positive and responsible. She listens and cares. She is not only a great attorney but also a wonderful person. She tries every possible way to solve my present problems and to avoid potential future problems. While other attorneys try to find a way to charge more, she charges a very reasonable price plus she actually thinks for you and try to reduce the cost . As a client, I am really impressed by her high professional conduct and consideration. I strongly recommend her.

Two years ago Galorah Keshavarz took my H1B visa renewal case. Her rate was the best one but not just that, she was extremely informative and helpful. I strongly recommend her, she is a great professional, sincere and fair. I have no doubt, in case I need a lawyer in the future she will be the one I will call.

I was referred to Ms. Keshavarz with high recommendations for an insurmountable immigration case. I had seen a handful of attorneys who were incapable of handling my case and I was hopeless in finding an attorney who could help. Ms. Keshavarz immediately reviewed my case without prejudice in detail and exceeded my expectations over and beyond my imagination. I was very impressed by her deep knowledge of the immigration process and her kindness and empathy towards my situation. The process was explained in great detail and she made me feel at ease and very comfortable of her handling my case. I highly recommend Ms. Keshavarz if you are seeking immigration assistance. I can more than guarantee you will be in good hands.

I had immigration issues for about 6 years, during that time period I had talked to 2 lawyers and they had no idea how to deal with my situation. At the end of 2010 I had a chance to meet with Galorah and when I explained my situation, she knew what to do and started on my case immediately. By November 2011 everything was taken care of. I could not believe after 6 years and 2 lawyers, Galorah was the one who got the job done in less than a year. Since then myself and my family have recommended Galorah to others. If it wasn't for her Im not sure what my situation would be right now. Her work-ethic and drive to help others is impeccable, i have never met anyone like Galorah. She is the best.

Working with Ms. Keshavarz has been a wholesome and rewarding experience. Her sincerity, compassion and attention to detail provided us with an outstanding outcome, despite the unforeseen obstacles inserted by INS. I would recommend her highly, and I have already.

Atty.Galorah helped me with my naturalization. She is very dependable and knowledgeable. But most especially she is very kind; understanding and very supportive. She will make sure that you are well taken care of. I will definitely recommend her.

It was a great experience having Galora representing me for my citizenship she was great I would recommend her any day she is the best I was very happy with all her help .

My wife and I highly recommend Galorah for any immigration related cases. She successfully resolved a very sensitive situation and also helped us overcome unexpected bureaucratic challenges from USCIS. For example, USCIS did not properly review our application prior to our interview and we ended up having to resubmit information. Galorah was able to independently resolve the situation without delay. Her attention to detail, diligent engagement and genuine care are unmatched. This is not just a job to Galorah but a true calling to make a difference in people's lives. We are grateful to have been referred by a mutual friend.

I had two separate, but related matters concerning immigration and family law which were very complicated. I had wasted money on other attorneys who were not able to bring any results. Galorah throughly researched the matters finding a little used law that would solve both of my issues and then was even able to lead the judge through the resolution. My daughter and I are very grateful to have found her and I highly recommend her to others.

Galorah is a wonderful attorney. I'm involved in music, and although she does not advertise that she is a music attorney, she negotiated my contract with ease and confidence, giving me advice that was spot on. I'm very happy with the work that she did, and will use her services again. I highly recommend Galorah Keshavarz.
