I am really glad I was introduced to Jacob Sapochnick and his team. Jacob was referred from a good friend of mine who highly spoke about him. When I was searching for a lawyer, I spoke with three different firms to make sure I was going to choose the most experienced professional and someone who I could trust. Jacob was amazing. I'm glad I choose him because I'm sure other lawyers couldn't have done the same. I am very impressed with his up-to-date knowledge about immigration law and its process. In addition, he is a person who you can trust and rely on (no matter what time it is... he responded text messages and phone calls when I most needed). Besides from that, his team is great. They really work together and look after for their clients.
Jacob, I have no words to say how thankful I am. Thanks for the amazing job you’ve done.

Jacob and his team helped me get my H1B visa transfer approved. My case wasn't an easy one. I could have failed my H1B transfer if I didn't get Jacob's help. Jacob is very knowledgeable, professional, and always advise the best. I have been very satisfied with the service Jacob provided for me. Now I am moving forward to green card application and I am looking forward to working with Jacob again.

Jacob managed to secure a F1 visa for myself under unique circumstances. His creativity and professionalism is what sets him apart from other Attorneys.
He is highly recommended.

What would you do when you plan a visit to your home country and get stuck because of the visa issues -CALL JACOB SAPOCHNICK.
Jacob and his team has been helping me since 2010.H3 Visa then H1B and I just received K1 visa.
Last year I went to India to visit my family. I had to go for visa interview at the embassy since I only had paper visa and did not have H1B visa stamp in my passport.
On 1st january 2013 during the interview at US Embassy, New Delhi, the VO officer told me that he is going to review my case.
On Aril 9th after 3 months of long wait I received my passport back with letter that Embassy has sent my case back to USCIS to review or possible revocation.
It was very devastating as I only had planned my visit for a month. I had a rented apartment, phone bills, house bills, a car etc. in US.
I talked to my Fiancé and we decided to apply for fiancé visa. I contacted Jacob right away and he said it is possible as my case is genuine.
During this process everyone in Jacob's team were very patience, helpful and available. Even though we had almost 12 hours of time difference (Between India and US) and I was living on the other side of the world, they were always prompt in reply. They had assisted me in my case from beginning to end. I cannot explain my gratitude towards them.
Jacob, Kate, Katie,Nadia,Natalie,Jessica, Beth - You guys are AMAZING. Thank you so much for all your assistance and support during this difficult time in India. I am so happy that I am back in my dream country and getting ready to start a new part of my life with women I love the most.
I can't thank you guys enough. There is not a question that I will always recommend Jacob J. Sapochnick to everyone out there.

I first came to know Jacob while I was a research scientist in La Jolla, San Diego and then moved to Maryland in Sept. 2010. I was confident in his professional expertise and decided that he is the best immigration officer to handle for my legal permanent residence application (EB1 and EB2). I got a superb support not only from him, but also from Andrew J. Desposito, Attorney at Law and other stuff members at his Law offices. Though I am far away in Maryland and was communicating by e-mail and phone, his professional advice was superb and comforting. Initially, my EB1 application was rejected and I felt really bad about it. But he came up with an amazing solution and turned around my application to go for national interest waiver (EB2). During all these periods, Andrew and Jacob showed an excellent professional support to write all the letters and respond to all my questions immediately by e-mail and phone. Finally, my NIW case has been approved and received permanent legal residence for me and other 4 family members.
What really satisfied me was the way they handled my case is as close to their heart and worked hard to make sure I succeed in getting my dream for legal residence. When I applied for the second EB2 category, I was not charged for the service fee required and that really showed me their passion for my
legal status. I do strongly recommend Jacob and Andrew for any immigration application and stay assured to receive a superb service you dream for. Wherever you live in US, you can work on your case by e-mail and phone communication as I did in this case.

We asked Jacob to rescue an ongoing L1B application that was under a second RFE after an initial refusal. Jacob has done an amazing job turning this application around and getting an approval. Jacob has then handled our L1A renewal, which has also undergone intense scrutiny. Again, Jacob has defended our case amazingly well, and we received a second approval.
Having worked with several lawyers, I can say that Jacob not only has extensive theoretical knowledge of the law, but also practical experience of how it is actually interpreted, which is a lot more important. Jacob also deeply cares about your case. Immigration issues can be stressful, and knowing that your lawyer is making it a priority is also very important.
We recommend him wholeheartedly.

I was disappointed with my previous lawyer who handled my H1-B transfer case. She was hard to reach; she would only communicate via email, and was unreachable by phone.
I found Jacob on an internet search, and he gladly took over my case. It was much easier to work with Jacob and his team. They were available via email and phone. They explained the process and necessary paperwork in detail. They were very flexible, and if I was unable to provide some documentation, they suggested alternative forms that would suffice. They followed up with reminders and updates on the process. I felt that they cared about my case.
Once we got all the necessary forms and submitted them, the H1-B transfer was approved without complication. It was actually approved much sooner than I had anticipated! I highly recommend Law Offices of Jacob Jan Sapochnick.
Thanks Jacob and Andrew!

I would like to thank Jacob Sapochnick and his associates for all of there help getting my fiance Assaf David back to the states after we were apart for over two years(after being together 8 years). The whole team really helped us through the most stressful time in both of our lives! We previously had a horrible lawyer who gave us bad advice and didn't even spell Assaf's name right on the legal documents. After this we were lost on what to do next until Assaf found Jacob. After our first talk he answered all of our questions and guided us on what to do next with the K1 visa. Assaf was in Israel and I am in Cincinnati so we did everything online or over the phone. Jacob and his staff were very helpful and informative, they answered all of our questions promptly and professionally! We ended up having to do two different waivers the 212 & 601 and everything was done perfectly. We will do all of our future immigration processes with Jacob and only Jacob! I would highly recommend Jacob and his legal team to anyone who needs an immigration lawyer because he is the BEST! We are now happily together for 3 days and looking forward to our wedding! Thank you so much for everything Bridgette Clark & Assaf David

I've successfully applied for TN-Status three times now and Jacob has made what is a stressful situation as smooth as seems humanely possible. He and his team have answered every email and call I've made quickly and to my satisfaction and I've asked a lot of questions because of worry over the years. Thanks Jacob and team for your patience! I highly recommend Jacob to anyone looking for Legal help getting a Visa!

I am really thankful to Jacob and his really skilled team. I wanted to apply for Eb2 NIW green card, but I wasnt sure my case would be strong enough or if I have a chance. Jacob was really reassuring and gave me the reassurance to prepare the application. I thus worked closely with Kate, she is NIW expert lawyer in Jacob's office. She helped me through the preparation of the documentation for the application, and thanks to her and Jacob we submit a really strong case. 6 months later I received my approval notice, I was really surprised as I expected some request for additional documents. Thanks to Jacob Sapochnick's law office high skill and enthusiasm my green card application went smoothly.
I can't be more grateful to Jacob, I'll recommend him and his staff to everyone looking for help in their green card application.
