My husband and I had to apply for adjustment of status. Prior to visiting with Mr. Kramer we met five other immigration attorneys. Mr. Kramer was by far the most trustworthy and affordable of all of them. We had a great experience. He kept it simple and after only a few month I was approved for permanent residency. He even saw us after hours as my husband is full time employed and I was not mobile yet. We suggest Mr.Kramer to everybody who needs immigration services.

I was blessed to find Attorney David Kramer to assist me with preparations for my Green Card Interview at USCIS. He researched all aspects of my complicated case, and in a very short period of time. Mr. Kramer provided me with the self assurance that my interview should not be a scary time, that it was a step in my life that was mean't to be, and he was there to clarify any issues or questions by the USCIS Agent. I highly recommend David Kramer to see to your immigration case!

David assisted me in applying for the NIW process. He has well developed resources and a clearly laid out process to guide the applicant through the multi-step process. He provided ready advice and clarifications along the way. His communication was clear and straightforward.
David took care of the actual filing of the paperwork and kept me informed of where we were and what implications or concerns I should watch out for along the way. He also watchfully and proactively contacted me to rush the application through before a deadline which was unexpectedly announced by USCIS.
David's post-application support and response to incidental questions is gracious and thorough.

It gives me great pleasure to strongly recommend Mr David Kramer as an excellent
attorney. Right from the very first time he took up our case, I was very impressed with his
straight forward approach into how we should go about filing my petition. His thoughtful advice, knowledge about science and technology, and competence in understanding complex issues is a tremendous boon for any one whom he represents. As a foreign born reseach scientist, I owe my passage to permanent residency to Mr Karmer. David works tirelessly to represent you, and always keeps you informed about any progress. At the same time we found that he was a constant source of strength and confidence which is necessary to go through the green card process. We will always be grateful to him for his support and help.

I am extremely happy to write a review for David Kramer for his exceptionally great qualities as an immigration attorney. I will strongly recommend him to any applicant going through difficult Immigration –related issues. Your chances of a success are very high with David!
Personally, I came to the US as a student on a J-1 visa that carries a strict requirement of a 2-yr residency in your country of origin before you become eligible to apply for Green Card. On the first thought, I decided to apply for a waiver. Although, I have successfully obtained a waiver of the 2-yr home residency requirement from my home country in Africa, my application was denied anyway.
I contacted three different attorneys for advice but they were unanimous in their advice to return to my country – they would tell me “James, your case is a difficult one that would cost you a lot of money in fees etc but we cannot even assure you that you will get the Green Card in the end”. Sounds familiar? Yes. Just then a friend who was very satisfied with the supports he got from David to get his Green card gave me the contact details of David Kramer Law.
I am happy I did make that “one call” and Guess what, He got the job done! David has successfully obtained the Green Card for me and my family.
Most importantly, David was able to secure a waiver of the 2-yr residency for one of my daughters who was unable to fulfill the home residency requirement at the time of the interview. He took only two months to get my daughter out of this requirement to the delight of the family.
Even when the poor girl was about to age-out of the application process before the scheduled interview date for the family, David was able to contact the Consulate in my home country, directly, to expedite action on the application. Consequently, we got interviewed earlier than scheduled.
I will strongly recommend Mr Kramer to applicants going through difficult Immigration –related issues. His services are outstanding!

i was 21 and almost aged out to qualify as a dependent on my families immigration status. i had to fulfill 2 years home residency out of the US but with the help of David Kramer, i got a waiver of the home residency. within 3 weeks of the application my waiver was expedited so i could still be eligible as a dependent. within a week after the notice, my whole family got an interview thanks to David with his expertise. and my waiver was approved a day before the interview. in the real situation, it takes 4 months to be approved but with the help and hard work of David Kramer, mine took a month. right now my family and i have our visas and i came back to the US and i have my permanent residency thanks to David who updated me step by step during the process. with his good work, i can finally pursue my degree in pharmacy. he is the best immigration lawyer there is.

We have obtained our American citizenship in 2012, but the handling of Mr. David Kramer and his office staff of our Green-Card started as early as 1998. As research scientists unfamiliar with the world of immigration and immigrations laws, but quite familiar with performances of other lawyers in our field of expertise, we wish to highlight the outstanding professional law services provided by Mr. Kramer for both our Green-Card and Naturalization applications during this lengthy period. Mr. Kramer patiently answered our endless email questions, always on due time and in most of the cases almost immediately, never complained about our apparent ignorance of regulations, and guided us calmly throughout these stressful processes for every non-American trying to make it. He filled and filed properly all the related documents as requested by the immigration services and even advised us what additional documents we need to prepare in case of “difficulties” during the lengthy process, a situation that fortunately, had never happened to us. All of these were provided at the fixed reasonable prices agreed beforehand. The prices quoted before each service Mr. Kramer provided had never changed nor increased regardless of the time that was involved. We are confident that without the careful guiding hand of Mr. Kramer taking care of every detail, we could have encounter difficulties with our various applications. For eliminating these potential pitfalls we are especially very grateful.
We recommend the services of his office to scientists who are interested in honest and professional handling of their immigration issues without any reservation.

I have searched very carefully for an immigration lawyer recalling some negative past experiences I had many years ago with other attorneys. We selected Mr. Kramer after reading some of the reviews here.
I was very happy with the service Mr. Kramer provided and he even went beyond our expectations in helping us solving a problem with DMV regarding my wife’s change of last name (work authorization with old name and social security card with new name).
I would definitely recommend Mr. Kramer to all my friends!

I contacted him again and he performed miracle. We are so happy to know him and will definitely contact him again in the future.

David was referred to my by a friend and i am thank full to my friend for that.
David is friendly,organized, professional, subject matter expert, economical and add to that his charming personality. Plus he has an amazing, wonderfull and friendly staff working for him.
The team at David's office ensures that you are important and they leave no stone unturned to help you out.
My advice to all out there looking for Attorney regarding immigration needs "look no further".
We can never forget how he confronted with immigration officer over his lack of subject knowledge, and the argument he presented ensured our case approval and educated the immigration officer on the subject.
We are thank full to David and his team for there servcies and would recommend them to all my friends and family looking for immigration attorney.

I have used David for more than 10 years in order to obtain 3 different work visas, a handful of extensions (including little-practiced cases like H-1B recapture) and a green card. I always had not only excellent results (ie premium-processed extensions in less than a week) but also peace of mind. I felt confident about David's skills and the fact that he would represent my cases in the best possible light. This is extremely important because the immigration processes can be lengthy and the last thing you want is lack of trust in the attorney. Well David deserves 100% of my trust and over the years I have recommended him to numerous friends (who also had only positive things to say about him). I consider him one of the best immigration attorneys and also a very pleasant & friendly person that makes immigration dealings as pleasant as they can get!

david kramer is the brilliant, efficient, friendly and compassionate immigration lawyer who helped me get my green card almost 20 years ago!! (after a few other lawyers had said they could not help a florist!!)
i'm always happy to recommend him to others, because i know how frustrating and worrisome becoming a resident can be. he listened to my situation right on the phone and told me precisely what to expect and that i would have my green card within a year. and that's exactly what happened!!
he has helped several others that i referred to him, even with very difficult cases!! and to this day, he takes my phone calls or calls right back whenever i have a legal question.
i personally vouch for this lawyer who through his work has helped to lay the foundation for my personal happiness!!

Mr. Kramer has handled all my cases for over seven years. From the very beginning he informed me in a very truthful way about my options and the challenges my case had.
I have hired Mr. Kramer and his staff for 4 immigration cases: My H1B visa renewal, Labor Certification, Audit of my Labor Certification, and my husband's H1B visa, and I have to say that he has worked hard to provide the best results possible in all of the cases under very difficult and testing circumstances.
Many times I faced the fear of the unknown, facing difficulties and going through the very stressful and emotional process that any immigration case can cause.
All through my ups and downs, Mr. Kramer has stuck with me, never let his guard down, he has guided me, supported me, kept me informed, told me the plain truth (as hard as the truth was to hear).
I will never forget how he called me on a 24th of December (from his office, in the evening, rather than being home with his family) to lighten my Christmas up with wonderful news of sweet success!
He truly seemed as happy as I was and patiently heard my cry of joy!
I will never forget how professional he’s been with us; I absolutely respect him and have come admire his desire to help people like me!
I highly recommend Mr. Kramer for he has respected me as person, a client, a professional and a woman with the dream of a better life and future in this wonderful country that has already given me so much!

Mr. Kramer was my immigration lawyer. My case was decided favorably for me and my family. His instructions were always clear and my responsibilities as a client were well defined. Mr. Kramer provides a document package with examples which was very helpful in completing my own document package. He is also very clear about the fees and does not come up with extra fees throughout the filing process.

Mr. Kramer is a very reliable, straight foward and trustworthy attorney. He was recommended to me by a friend who he successfully helped with greencard matters as well.
His knowledge about the immigration regulations is excellent and has been always up-to-date.
He responded to my emails or phone inquiries instantly and always provided me with professional advice as well the progress update.
He always took time to listen to me and my problems in a very supportive way.
I have to thank Mr. Kramer so much for helping me to get through this draining process. I highly recommend him for any immigration process.

I heard about David from other organization when I was looking for the best attorney I could afford to take care of the mess that other attorney did a year ago. He was very knowledgeable and most importantly, respond to my calls and emails very quickly. I know attorneys are very busy and it's not easy to respond to everyone, but there are SO MANY attorneys, who ignore clients' phone calls and emails and steal our money. Well, that's the very reason how my old attorney messed up my case, so I'm so happy and glad to find David, who is very responsible for his clients and genuine and quickly takes care of the problem.

i am a client and have known David long enough (10+ yrs) to say with all confidence that i would highly recommend Mr. Kramer's legal line of expertise to anyone who hires him.
