Totally awesome. Complete integrity and came through for us in every way. My journey of getting my wife from Ukraine to the United States was handled wonderfully because of his diligent and hard work. I would hire Armen again in a moment -- and would highly recommend him. Thank you Armen.
I am very satisfied with my experience with him. And I strongly recommend him.
I am an internationally recognized music producer and arranger. I also compose music. I am better known by my penname Murzo.
Many of the musical works produced and arranged by me received national and international awards. Throughout my long and productive career, I managed to produce and arrange more than seventy-five hits songs for several internationally recognized recording artists. In addition, I also composed, scored and arranged music for award winning films and television programs, most notably From Ararat to Zion, an internationally acclaimed documentary film narrated by Aidan Quinn.
In the 54-year history of Eurovision Song Contest, I am the only music producer and arranger who produced and arranged the selected songs for a participating country for five consecutive years.
Because of my reputation, I have been called upon to serve as a judge on a number of jury panels at national music awards, national music contests, and nationally broadcast and top-rated music television shows.
As fate has willed, for creative reasons, my family and I came to the USA in 2011. From the very first months many opportunities came across me, which led me to believe there was a great demand for my creative work. This circumstance contributed to making a decision to obtain legal advice from an immigration attorney to secure residency status in America.
I consulted with several attorneys, including Mr. Armen Gukasyan. I chose Mr. Gukasyan because I believed that he was the only one who intuitively perceived my professional specifics and understood my needs and requirements, which he ultimately placed at the service of achieving my goal, i.e. having the legal right to live, work and create in the USA. My belief proved to be accurate, as all the way until the end of the process, Mr. Gukasyan did not deviate from the compassion, understanding and integrity he showed when we first met.
From the moment we started the case with Mr. Gukasyan, time was against us and it was a major consideration for us. However, he helped us navigate the complex process efficiently and within the strict time constraint. With his professional assistance, the issue of my and my family’s legal permanent residence in the U.S. was resolved within 7 months. He made the whole process of immigrating to the USA to appear to be so easy.
More than once, Mr. Gukasyan demonstrated his competence and professional skills and used them in a disinterested way to deal not only with the immigration issues of my family, but also with those of my friends, whom I referred to him without any reservations.
Our attorney-client relationship has since turned into a good friendship. And now I’m proud that I consider myself to be Mr. Gukasyan’s good friend. I wish him every success in work and personal life.
This extremely knowledgeable lawyer knows what it takes to win a case and applies that knowledge to get positive results.
Prior to hiring Mr. Gukasyan to represent me in my immigration case, I had another lawyer who prepared and filed my I-140 petition in the â€œextraordinary ability alienâ€ category. However, despite the submission of every document I was told by my previous lawyer to get in order to show my career achievements, the immigration service came back with a request to submit additional evidence because the petition was â€œdeficientâ€ to classify me as an alien of extraordinary ability. I then sought Mr. Gukasyanâ€™s help to review my case and advise me what additional documents I could submit to show my standing as an extraordinary ability athlete. Mr. Gukasyan reviewed my documents and the immigration serviceâ€™s request to submit additional evidence and told me that while the submitted documents did show my achievements as a gymnast, the evidence of extraordinary ability needed to be presented to the immigration service in the best possible light to meet the immigration serviceâ€™s required standard. He also explained to me that showing extraordinary ability was more than a plain document production process, and that it was equally important how the evidence was presented to the immigration service to meet the standard. He proved to be absolutely right because my petition was approved in two weeks after he prepared and submitted a response with essentially the same documents my previous attorney had submitted before. The end result confirmed my belief that preparation and presentation can be the difference between winning and losing a case.
Throughout the entire process, Mr. Gukasyan demonstrated the kind of understanding, dedication, and responsiveness one would expect from a lawyer who puts his clientâ€™s interest above everything else.
Mr. Gukasyan was recommended to me by a friend of mine. But now this outstanding lawyer has my recommendation as well.
I am a concert/event promoter and organizer. I invite many foreign entertainers to the U.S. to participate in the events which I organize and promote. Mr. Gukasyan represented my company to obtain visas for foreign entertainment groups to give performances in the United States. He has assisted me in more than one matter and always successfully.
My experiences with Mr. Gukasyan allow me to say that he is an outstanding, very knowledgeable, responsive, and considerate lawyer. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs immigration help.
