My wife (U.S. Citizen) and I (Canadian P.R.) just completed a successful spousal visa (CR1) process through the Montreal Consulate. I only have praise for Mr. Lolly's and his staff for their professionalism and for being so helpful and knowledgeable during this process.
We started off our CR1 journey with a very frank conversation where we laid out a work plan that we adjusted as we moved along. Allan was always eager to listen to our situation and we adjusted our plans based on the observations we had. He was always handy to answer our questions and we appreciated how he analyzed them, and provided frank straight-to-the point answers. That is what my wife and I needed as we relied on his legal immigration knowledge and advice.
Tami, the case manager that he assigned to us, was and is a great professional. She worked with us side by side and guided us through the complex documentation requirements for our immigration process. Our communication with Allan Lolly and his staff has always been fluid, helpful, and prompt. Their answers and guidance contributed to reduce the natural anxiety and uncertainty that naturally comes associated with immigration procedures.
If you are reading this review, I can tell you by my experience and that of my wife that we are completely satisfied with the service that we received, the fair price, the professionalism, communication, and above all the effectiveness that resulted out of all this. I am joining my wife in NY very soon (March 2014) and having people like Allan, and Tami on our side made our journey more satisfactory.
Please do your homework: invest the time to collect documentation, follow the instructions that you receive, communicate respectfully and efficiently, and ask questions. That is what we did with Allan and Tami and the positive results that we obtained speak for themselves.
These are the reasons why we are writing this review and we wish you success in your own journey!

We would definitely recommend Allan S. Lolly and Associates to anyone we know. We contacted Allan in late July as soon as we learned that immigration was federally accepting applications of same sex couples petitioning their fiances. We realized this was something too big for us to do alone and had already been very discouraged because we had attempted two B-2 visitor visa's already on our own and were denied. After the initial phone call to Allan, he promptly returned the phone call on the same day within a couple of hours. He was very supportive of our situation and explained to me that he was on board for equality of same sex marriage and he would work with us in every way possible. He reviewed our information and was very encouraging and he felt this is something we can accomplish. He also explained that there could be some difficulty relating to the law recently changing and also possible stigma concerning the Embassy in Manila. Most impressive was that I felt he really cared and told me to discuss this with my partner and let him know our decision. We signed the contract on July 22nd, received receipt notice from USCIS on August 20, sent to NVC on November 3rd, received by Embassy in Manila on December 3rd, interview January 6th, request for one missing document, and Visa ISSUED on February 4, 2014. Allan and Taylor worked with us every step of the way answering all questions, prompt with all responses, and made sure all our documents were completed and without error. Most important is that the visa was issued and in a short time although it seemed like a lot longer. Thank you Allan and Taylor.....we greatly appreciate your services and legal expertise..

Allan Lolly and Taylor Collins helped us in the process of receiving my conditional permanent resident status after I (German) got married to my husband (US).
Everything worked out great from the start: Only a few hours after we've sent an e-mail to Allan Lolly's office in order to get some information and a quote, Allan personally called us to get a better view of our case (most of the lawyers we contacted, did not even get back or only months later).
His professionalism and detailed explanations, just on this first phone call, convinced us, he would be the right choice and made us hire him. Our expectations even got exceeded.
Taylor was in charge for us and prepared all the paperwork absolutely perfect and very detail-oriented, I guess, that is what counts in matters like these. The e-mail-correspondence was professional during the entire process, every update from the USCIS got communicated right away (not one single day delayed). And everything always got explained (while Taylor was on vacation, Cynthia did a wonderful job here, too!).
Short-term requests from our side were resolved by Taylor immediately.
Only 2 month after filing date, I received EAD and AP and two weeks later the conditional "green card". Much earlier then we ever anticipated.
Thank you Allan and Team for the great work!
I will definitely hire Allan Lolly again for removal of the conditional status.

Allan Lolly and Taylor Collins were absolutely the right choice for my fiancée and me. My German fiancée just recently received her visa, so we are super thankful to Allan and Taylor. Not only did they do a superb job of simply dealing with the government paperwork (which isn’t simple to me), but they also—Taylor in particular—provided moral support and practical tips to both my fiancée and me. Often, dealing with conflicting and confusing documents from the government can be trying to a person’s sanity, but Taylor was on the ball all the time. Not once did my fiancée or I feel in the dark when we had questions. I think the fees Lolly charges are more than fair for the quality care and professionalism the client receives. My fiancée and I knew it was important for us to be able to eventually be man and wife in the USA, and I am so glad we chose this law firm. Now, our dreams can come true because of their hard work. Allan and Taylor, we thank you so much! We will use you again for further paperwork for Adjustment of Status/Green Card, etc.

I was in need of a K-1 Visa and researched it thoroughly on the internet. Initially I called Mr. Lolly's office and spoke with him directly about his credentials, experience, and the whole K-1 Process. I could have chosen cheaper avenues but I can honestly say I'm glad I went with Mr. Lolly. After completing all the paperwork and getting the initial approval, My fiancé had her interview with the U.S Embassy. We had no problems as we were completely prepared and had everything we needed thanks to the exceptional attention to detail provided by Mr. Lolly's office. His staff is highly knowledgeable, and professional. I will certainly be a return customer.

I hired Allan Lolly and Associates more than a year ago to handle Visa and immigration for my Ukrainian fiancee and her son. We are now married here in the U.S.A. Visa and immigration can be hard and complicated. For this reason we chose to use a reputable law firm. Honestly you cannot find better in my opinion. Allan Lolly and Associates has my highest recommendation.

Allan Lolly was advising me on options for securing my partner's--now
spouse's--permanent residency several years before the Supreme Court
decision that provided federal benefits to same-sex couples. When the law
officially changed in late June 2013, allowing U.S. citizens to sponsor
their same-sex binational spouses, he handled our case. He and his
paralegal staff, especially Taylor Collins, were thorough, professional,
courteous, and supportive throughout the entire process. They were clear
about the steps we needed to take, provided clear instructions, and prepared
and submitted the myriad forms on our behalf. They were always available
for our questions. We had complete confidence in Allan's firm, and being
represented by him took a great burden off us throughout the months-long
process. I'm happy to report that my husband just received his permanent
residency (green) card. He looks forward to taking the next steps in order
to become an American citizen in a few years. Thank you, Allan and your
staff, for helping us and for making possible this new chapter in our lives.
We highly recommend Allan S. Lolly & Associates to other binational same-sex
couples who are embarking on the immigration process and want both a
successful outcome and complete peace of mind.

Allan Lolly obtained a K 1 Fiance Visa for my Ukrainian fiance and K 2 Visa for her daughter. My case was more complex because I had done another K 1 visa in the past. As well, my income is low due to a disability. Despite these challenges, Allan Lolly was able to successfully help us receive the visa from a difficult embassy. I highly recommend Allan Lolly for immigration visas and other immigration matters.

The law firm made me and my fiance from Thailand's paperwork for her K1 so easy and simple. Yes it takes some work, but without them I dont think we would have got it done by now, we would still be working on it. I would recommend them for anyone looking to get a K1 visa. Thank you so much Allan and a very special thanks to Taylor Collins for all her help and hard work. We will be using you guys for all the other paperwork for the green card also
