    • I recommend Gerald Shapiro.
    • I hired Gerald 6-12 months ago.
    • Gerald handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Lawyer Shapiro, provides prompt and reliable legal advice and counsel. He works effectively and skillfully. He is effective in the courtroom and articulate in explaining the law. My case was of a family migration from Iran for my sister and her kids. Mr. Shapiro strongly believed that we must do everything in our power to keep families together, and to use common sense in our immigration laws. Children deserve better than to lose a parent because of an inflexible law. He successfully argued that they did not voluntary abandoned their lawful permanent resident status and therefore they should be admissible to USA as a lawful permanent resident. We appreciate Mr. Shapiro’s legal expertise and are very thankful of him.

    • I recommend Gerald Shapiro.

    Mr. Shapiro has been of excellent legal assistance in the process of building my Immigration case. He was expertly able to guide me in making the best decisions in moving forward when creating a new case. He advised that it would be more affordable and beneficial to create a new case instead of opening up the previous I had filed without his assistance which had resulted in rejection by the USCIS. His advice has proven to be successful as my case was accepted in a speedy and efficient manner without any complications. Mr. Shapiro was patient, informative, and professional in dealing with the case and myself, his client. I highly recommend Mr. Shapiro due to the results and level of expertise I have been able to witness first-hand both throughout the process of building my case and when my case was accepted without any set backs. Mr. Shapiro should be taken into great consideration when searching to hire a reliable and beneficial Immigration lawyer.

    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 ,
