My Case was to complected, I came to US from INDIA as Student Visa. After, i get here I got married to US citizen. Within couple months i got my 2 year conditional GC. We was happy and enjoying our marriage life so far. Before my 2 year GC was expired i apply for condition to remove status and after couple months i got RFE. I submitted more evidence and after month i got letter from immigration for the face to face interview. Now, in most cases immigration dont call for 2nd interview but i dont know what is going on. Then, I hired Mr. Jerry Shapiro as my lawyer. He so calm and confidant about my case. He told me not to worry. We went for Interview, after 3 weeks i got my 10years GC.
Mr. Jerry Shapiro is the best lawyer ,

I am sincerely grateful to Atty. Jerry Shapiro. I am originally from the Philippines. Me and my child overstayed / on an expired tourist visa for 12 yrs.
It was pure luck how I found Atty. Shapiro. I meant to call a different immigration lawyer & for some reason, it went thru to him. This was 2 years ago. I sched. a free consultation with him , walked in his office with Fear and Anxiety. My situation has been very complex due to my criminal case. I searched everywhere & all I got were negative answers. It seemed like my case was hopeless. I was very hesitant to file and come out in the open as it may result to our deportation. I presented my case to Atty.Shapiro and gave me a sense of relief and hope. He was very composed and calm about it. I have previously contacted a lawyer who was very negative right away. Atty. Shapiro even knew my past criminal lawyer. He contacted them and found out about the case. I decided to file ! But I guess, I had an attraction for bad luck.. unforeseen turn of events transpired just before we were about to submit the case. I had to cancel my application. I just realized that there were a few other things that needed to be taken cared of. I was very disheartened and truly hopeless. He did not discourage me but instead, advised me to take care of those matters , even referred me to another good atty. for other issues . I had to wait for more " clearance " pertaining my other unresolved issues. It took almost another year before I was fully ready. During that entire time, Atty. Shapiro has always been accessible and accommodating especially by email. I felt more secured. He was always very helpful answering questions etc. by email. I never had to go through secretaries, or anybody else to get thru him. Not even once ! He was always responsive to queries. That helped a lot and alleviated getting more stressed and worried. A year later, I went back to his office and finally filed. I would admit, I have still been anxious and scared the whole time as I wasn't sure if I will be approved or not. But then, 2 mos after we filed, we already got notices from USCIS. Then, another month later, my son received his work permit. Then mine followed another month later. Few months passed, I just waited for more notices for my interview. It seemed like forever. Atty Shapiro followed up with them and kept me posted the entire time. After which, we got notices for our interview. He asked me to come in his office a few weeks before the interview date. He gave me a complete list of docs to bring and to make sure I am fully prepared. I got the reassurance that everything will go just fine and not to worry about my criminal case. Our interview date came, and there he was. It was nerve wracking I must admit. But then, everything went well. I was very thankful that he reminded me to bring everything I needed. I came prepared. We got an approval that same day & we're just waiting for our green card in the mail !!!! I can't thank him enough for his patience , knowledge & professionalism. I truly and highly recommend him !!!! 2 Thumbs up to you, Atty. Shapiro !!!

I immigrated from Iran to the US in 2007 base on US citizen spouse. In 2009 I applied for removal of condition from my residency (I-751) which ended to removal proceeding. I hired first attorney who was not helpful and the second application ended to proceeding as well. I was so disappointed and recommended by a local agent to Mr Shapiro. I call his office and there was a very warm greeting fro secretary. I found his cell phone number through the greeting of answering machine. (He's been easy to reach and available up yo the end of case, for 2 other lawyers I had to pass secretary and leave a message on the phone and wait for response for a long time). In one hour consul I explained my situation and he figured it out quickly. He drafted his plan for me to solve the issue. I had 2 other consults with other attorneys, and made my decision that I would be comfortable with Mr Shapiro: 1. Available for client all the time without secretary barrier, even he checks all documents in front of you and sometimes he makes copy by himself rather than asking somebody else, so it makes you sure nothing would be lost 2. He listens to you carefully without any interruption and no hurry to end the consult session. 3. He responds everything legally and does research about the details based on references, and if he doubts about anything he would say "I'll research about it". 4. He has good knowledge of the scope of his practice with multiple solution for each problem. 6. And the fee for service was excellent. My case took 2.5 years to get ended because my third application was stuck in CIS while the 2nd application was being followed up in the immigration court. Mr Shapiro was so smart to find where my application exactly is and asked Judge to make CIS to have a decision on that. At interview day he patiently addressed the legal issues in my application and gave me hints after on to provide all documents might be helpful. I couldn't believe my case would be approved but Mr Shapiro was so confident about it. Finally 6 weeks after interview I received my Green Card: a case i couldn't believe to be approved at the 3rd time!!! Unbelievable. I highly recommend Mr Shapiro to anybody with immigration issue. Incredible.

Jerry is an excellent lawyer for your citizenship if you have any kind of criminal background. My interview only takes 10 mins! He successfully solved my cause and previously he helped my friend with criminal background to become citizen. About my situation, I am an Iranian who came to America about 10 years ago. I got wet reckless driving about 2 years ago. When my probation finished, I went to Jerry's office to help me with citizenship. He handled my expungement and citizenship. The whole process took only 4 months. I am satisfied with the result!

Mr. Shapiro is very caring and knowledgeable man who literally saved my life . He professionally handled a complicated case with grace and produced a great result. I do recommend Mr. Shapiro to be your partner at the ICE and DHS hearings.

Jerry Shapiro is the best lawyer that I have ever worked with. Before I work with Jerry Shapiro I worked with few other lawyer and not only I was not getting results, just dealing with those lawyers had become a nightmare for me. I recommend Jerry Shapiro for the following reasons:
1- He is responsive; whenever I had a concern on my case, I was able to get in touch with him quickly, and he addressed my issues and concern patiently
2- He is very knowledgeable; I have hired him on two immigration cases, and in both cases, he handled a case that was not exactly straight forward. in both cases very quickly and easily got my case approved. I have to admit that in both cases I was disappointed with approval of my immigration case and he did magic.
3- He understood my concerns and by explaining the solution to my case, and partly by his positive attitude eased my worries.
4- He is very fair on the fees that he charges. I remember for my first case, I was quoted twice than his fees by few other lawyers that did not even understood my case.
5- I was amazed by how neatly he organized my case and send it to the immigration office. It plays a big role on how your file is prepared and how easily immigration officers can browse trough it and find their material.
6- He is very organized; when I went to him for my second case, very quickly he found evidence and material from my first file (which was done ~5years earlier) that helped with my second case.
Every time that someone ask me of a great lawyer, I will with no doubt reffer he/she to Jerry Shapiro.

I had a really difficult case since I entered illigally to the USA from Mexico. Originally I am from Israel. I came here at age 12 and overstayed my visa. I have been living in the USA illigally for more then 12 years. Its very hard to live here without driver license and a work permit. I got really lucky to get my Green Card and to have a lawyer like Jerry.
When we started the case Jerry told me that since I had a very difficult case he didn't want to except the case without making sure I have a decent chance of not waisting my money and time. He kept me informed of all the different outcomes to my case. After we got some answers, we decided to start the case. Jerry always got back to me when I called him within a reasonable time. He didn't promise success since I had a really difficult case but soon enough I got approved for my Green Card. Jerry did a wonderful job. He was proffesional and very trustworthy. I know that if I took a lawyer less knowledgeable, I could have been facing deportation or a very long case. I am very happy that everything turned out the way it did. Thanks to this great lawyer I can now go to anywhere in the world and come back to the USA without a problem. I can drive legally with a current CA driver license. I no longer have to be worried about driving illigally. Jerry Shapiro did a great job and was more reasonably priced then most lawyers I was looking into for my case. Jerry Shapiro was a solid choice.

Since the end of 2010 my family was going through very tough times because of my husband's immigration status. Both I and my husband are Armenians from Armenia. We have 2 kids, who were born here in LA. Even though I and our two sons were US citizens at that time, the authorities deported my husband back to Armenia, after keeping him in Immigration Jail for almost 4 weeks. While my husband was in immigration jail, I met with 8-10 lawyers of different nationalities., including Armenians. The one I hired before Mr. Shapiro (while my husband was still in jail), failed. My husband was sent back to our country of origin.
I heard about Mr. Shapiro's great work from a friend of mine. At that time I had already met with about 15 lawyers, and couldn't decide who to hire. As soon as I met Mr. Shapiro and had my first consultation with him, I understood that he was the type of attorney I was looking for.
Mr Shapiro took over my husband's case in February of 2012. He filed deportation waivers for my husband ( I-601 and I-212). Every person who has such issues most probably knows how difficult it is to get waivers approved after deportation, and how long it can take( in average 4-6 months). Mr. Shapiro prepared such a strong case that our waivers were approved within 2 weeks, after submitting them.
I will definitely recommend Mr Jerry Shapiro to anyone who is going through immigration issues.
What I like about Mr. Shapiro most is that he is very responsive, very honest and knowledgeable. He was always there to answer any question I had. He even answered my phone calls on Sundays. Mr. Shapiro is very detail oriented. Whatever he writes in his legal briefs and cases is proved by strong supportive documents.
I hope we will never go through anything like this, but if we ever do, I will without hesitation go directly to Mr. Jerry Shapiro ( even though there are so many Armenian attorneys out there).
One more thing I forgot to mention is that he not only files documents and waits until he gets a response back, but also follows up with officials to get status of whatever he does.
I had never heard someone enter the US with an immigrant visa after being deported back to Armenia.( May be from other countries but not Armenia)
Great job Mr. Shapiro!!!
Thank you very much for everything you did for my family.

Ive dealt with a few attorneys in my life, criminal, real estate etc... but Jerry was the first and only that I have come across to be as honest and professional as he was to me. I was referred to him by another immigration attorney, who told me that Jerry was the one to talk to about my immigration case on obtaining my US citizenship. I cant thank Jerry enough, as he helped me obtain my citizenship even with the previous criminal issues that I had when I was younger and made some bad mistakes. Thank you Jerry again for helping me become a citizen, being so professional, knowing the law like you do and letting me realize my American dreams!!!

Mr. Shapiro is the best immigration lawyer out there , he made my impossible , possible. I am an Iranian women who have lived in U.S. since 2004. I had a temporary green card and had to divorce my husband. Immigration was going to terminate my residency because they believed that I did not enter my marriage in good faith. But Mr. Shapiro prove them wrong. After his defense was sent to immigration on May 30, immigration sent my permanent green card in June 16. I can not thank him enough for an amazing job he did. The other lawyer I had turn out to be an immigration consultant and he took all my money and gave me all the wrong advises. But Mr. Shapiro did not promise me anything and gave me my green card at the end .
THERE IS NO ONE BETTER THAN HIM IN CALIFORNIA

Jerry has been a great lawyer; our case was very complicated involved deportation to Armenia. We consulted with Mr. Shapiro he reviewed the case very carefully and said we have a great shot @ winning this case. He is wonderful person to work and would reply immediately to messages anytime of the day. It was hard fought battle but in the end he won the case for us. He made numerous visits and prepped everyone in the case to answer all questions. Our family had a piece of mind with this case and felt confident that in the end the verdict would be in our favor. I hope we never have to go through this again in the future, but if we did Mr. Shapiro is who we would turn to. It's almost like talking to a friend when you speak to Mr. Shapiro. We thank Mr. Shapiro again for his services.

Both my sons had their Green Cards withdrawn on re-entering the USA. Gerald Shapiro prepared their cases with great detail and had his arguments supported by detailed documentary evidence . After a number of hearings with the Immigration authorities , both of my sons had their Permenant Residence status re-instated.

Mr. Shapiro did a excellent job in defending one of my family member through a difficult immigration trial. He was honest and up front from the time he took the case. Not only was he honest but also professional and down to earth. When it seems that there was no hope and a lot of dissapointment, He was honest to say he will do his best to make our case heard. He is one of the most honest and trustwordly lawyer you could have. I rate Mr. Shapiro excellent because he is an outstanding lawyer. We are from Belize and mr Shapiro help my family member obtain legal status in the United States. Mr shapiro was very defiant in defending my family member. He went to the INS building on sevral occasions to make sure he got whatever documents he needed to prepare for our case. He visited my family member who was in INS custody on sevral ocassions to prepare for the case. He made sure we had all necessary paper work for our court date. The services from mr Shapiro's office definately met and exceeded our needs. We definately will and has always recomend mr Shapiro whenever any approach us that need an INS lawyer.

Jerry carried the immigration case for my wife flawlessly. He had easy to follow requests and turned around the paper work to the respective agencies immediately.
He was hones with his expectations of the case and resolved the matter in a much shorter time than we expected. He was extremely accessible during the course of the case.
Jerry was referred to us by a family friend whose case had been declined by other lawyers as they did not believe it could be solved in a favorable manner. Jerry solved it and that's why we contact him to handle our case.

Jerry came thru for us in a very big way. Jerry stood by our side for 6 years and saw that we got Justice.

My husband had a tough case! We had been discouraged several times! Jerry Shapiro always told me what he could do, never promised us anything he could not deliver.

Very Very Please! We highly recommend him!!

Thanks again to Jerry. I strong recommend Jerry for Immigration. I came from S-Korea. I married with American and apply green card during students status(for stay visa). Green card processing is more complecate than normal case. And also I moved to AZ from LA. Jerry should come to AZ court from CA. He did do really nice work for my case and make sure my green card. I can take exam for licence and have a good job now. Thank you ...

Jerry was very clear and helpful about what we would need for every step of the immigration and naturalization process. He was very attentive and available to answer any questions we had. He was hired specifically to acquire a green card but 5 years later, he has continued to help us by answering questions about other family immigration matters. We find him very knowledgeable and we recommend him wholeheartedly

I had a misdemeanor on my record, having gone to different attorneys to get my citizenship, I would sense that most of the attorneys didn’t want to get involve with my case, or they would tell me that I have a very difficult time getting my citizenship. Jerry Shapiro told me the consequences and also encouraged me to go forward and apply and get my citizenship. He had to go back and negotiating with officers involved in my case and finally got my citizenship. He is an honest and a professional attorney, and I would recommend him to anyone with immigration problems.

My name is Ajmal and i'm from Afghanistan, when i came to US i couldn't go back because of the conflict which is currently going on back there, My cousin took me to Mr. Shapiro's office and he filed my case applying for asylum, you won't believe i got approved just in 2 months.
Mr. Shapiro been always there to answer my questions and concerns and we went for my interview together, so long story short i'm really glad i hired Mr. Shapiro for my immigration problems back then and i will highly recommend him for those who is looking for an intelligent and smart attorney.
P.S. I forgot to mention an important fact that since i couldn't pay the fee in total, Mr. Shapiro gave me a monthly payments plan which was very helpful for me because i didn't have a job back then to pay the total amount, that was really kind of him.

Jerry Shapiro changed the statues of a case that I reffered to him last year, from deportation to an admission and obtained the green card for one of my relative. After reviewing the case , immidiatly, he noticed the immigration had made a mistake by not applying one particullar law to that case. He was knowledgeable, fast, and accurate. Thank you Jerry

He was referred to me due to his outstanding service to a family member of mine over 10 years ago. He was very responsive (even responded to my emails on the weekends) , cares deeply about what he does and is very organized. I like to be able to get a hold of my lawyer for quick questions and he made it very easy to do this. He is highly regarded in the immigration field and after having worked w/ him I understand why. He took care of all my paper work himself and was my direct contact throughout the entire process. I love the fact that I didn't have to deal with a paralegal or a secretary. I would highly recommend him for all your immigration needs. Our case was an adjustment of status (I-485) and it couldn't have gone any smoother. Each time the USCIS contacted me via postal mail I had already received an email from him with the scanned document informing me what to expect. This shows that he's on top of it and again dealing w/ my case directly himself.

Actually i haven't met Mr. Jerry in person, is just that one friend i met in Dubai UAE referred me to Mr. Jerry. All my documents were forwarded to Him, it is regarding my US citizenship application since my Father is a US citizen. Without any hesitation He accepted my case and willing to help me. He reviewed the documents, assessed my case and gave the best option possible to make this application successful.. He's even trying to communicate with my Father patiently, and discussing the development of the case. He makes things easier for me and for my Father, eventhough we're only communicating thru sending e-mail messages.. Mr. Jerry a dependable and knowledgeable lawyer. A man with a good heart.

However when I met Mr. shapiro, he explained me how my case can be solved, and he worked on it very quickly, he never rejects the phone calls like the other laywers do, his replies on the email are very quick, and explain about the process which the application is going through. I suggest anyone who has a problem with the immigration to see Mr. Shapiro and he definatly find a solution for him.

Due to having a large family, I have worked with 6-10 different immigration attorneys during the last 25 years but no one ever has been so honest, professional, informed, organized, focused, responsive, caring, on-time and on-budget as Mr. Shapiro. He has helped me so much and I am so grateful to know him and I recommend him to everyone who needs an immigration attorney. His principals and values as an attorney dealing with clients on various immigration cases are unheard of in this industry. He is also very straightforward from the first meeting and will not waste your time. He charges fairly and is responsive to phone or e-mail messages which is extremely assuring and calming during an immigration process. Again, I wish we had more lawyers as good and as honest as Mr. Shapiro!

My husband and I came to Jerry Shapiro for our immigration needs earlier this year. We went to two different lawyers prior to dealing with Mr. Shapiro, all of whom failed to successfully process our case and dragged the process along for months. Jerry Shapiro on the other-hand was a breath of fresh air. He filed our case quickly, without any delays. We had our interview shortly after his filing our caseand he accompanied us to our interview. We couldn't have been more pleased with Mr. Shapiro. Anyone who has dealt with attorneys in the past knows that many never respond to your calls and emails, make excuses, and basically give you the run around, but Mr. Shapiro is straight forward, returns your calls/emails and gets the job done. You can trust Mr. Shaprio and we highly recommend him to anyone in need of an immigration attorney.
