Working on my husbands papers was very nerve racking considering the smallest mistake would prevent us from a life together in the US. I had called around researching offices- some that did not have attorneys but just did the paperwork. None of the other offices I spoke with could explain each stage of the process to me, one even told me they could not work on my case further then the initial filing... Why would I want to hire a company that could not help me complete the goal of bringing my husband to the US? I was also told by another office I had a good case but if I was denied that was it I lost my money and my husband could not come to US. When I spoke with Allan he explained the entire process to me... When I asked him a worst case scenario if I was denied he personally assured me his office would reply to any questioning and pretty much guaranteed me he would not quit on my case until my husband was here with me and had obtained his green card. I was ecstatic. I hired Allan that same day, he worked with my pay schedule Which made the cost manageable for me. I even had my own personal paralegal who answered all of my questions no matter how silly or small they were. This office was very thorough and explained what was happening at each stage of case processing. Before each approval, I knew what the next step was to entail, and about how long the next stage would take. After my husband came to the US, they followed up letting me know when we need to remove conditions on his 2 year green card and get his permanent green card. I will continue with Allan and his office until we get my husband his citizenship and later we will file for his parents! Thank you Allan for the blessings you have made possible in my life.
My fiance and I really enjoyed working with these highly skilled attorneys who worked very hard for us. Before hiring Allan and Schuyler to assemble our case, I read many reviews about different attorneys who specialized in the i601 waiver. It's not that I didn't see other firms who got good reviews, I kept seeing Allan's firm come up time and time again when searching for an i601 attorney specialist. Many people I noticed that hired Allan and his team had nothing but great things to say about them and how their particular cases were handled. I had a really great feeling about hiring them and our consultation with Allan was direct and honest. Allan gave us our chances in success based off my life/past events that could strengthen and make our case (if we had one). At the end of the consultation, he surprised me by guaranteed success to my fiance and I. I was so happy to hear that we had a workable case. The confidence in his voice was a relief to hear after the unspeakable trauma my fiance and I went through after hearing about the denial of her k1 visa. His guarantee was golden and they came through for us. The only complaint if any that I had was out of everyone's control. At times, communication with our i601 attorney was slow and took up to a week in some cases to get a response through email with questions we had about the process. We were unaware that our attorney was working with multiple clients and their own individual cases. In this case, we just remained patient and all of our emails were answered clearly and with the direction we looked for. In some cases, I personally received phone calls from our i601 attorney to get information and ask questions which was very nice. Thank you Allan and Schuyler for everything.
Mr. Lolly and his office were absolutely fantastic to work with! My immigration case started out a bit complex but Mr. Lolly handled everything very well! He assured me that our case was not a problem and that we would be able to work around and/or resolve every issue we had. He offered me a free consultation which was important to me. It proved that he was confident in not only his abilities but those of his office. He reassured me about my case and we began. I began to work directly with his paralegal Taylor who was fantastic. She always responded to me questions and concerns (And i am sure there were many with my nervousness of getting things done) in the same day and always answered me back with great information. When she was out of the office, someone else stepped in to assure me the receipt of my documents and to answer questions. The team assisted me not only in securing a CR-1 visa for my husband but also advised me of how i could expedite my requests, how to handle the interview and now have offered guidance as to what should be done once he arrives. I was nervous to hire an attorney that was not living in the same state as me but i had read good things about his office. They definitely confirmed everything I had heard about them, Kudos to Mr. Lolly and his entire team!! Muchas gracias!!
Allan Lolly did exactly what we needed his staff was excellent and he went the extra mile to help my wife and I !! We now have the permanent resident card that we needed and my wife looks forward to working with him to apply for dual citizen ship . I can't say enough about how I would recommend him to any one that's looking for no noncence lawyer to get your residence or citizen ship .
I have used Allan Lolly's services to secure successfully two visas. I found him and his associates to be uniformly knowledgeable and responsive. There were aspects of the situation which were problematic, but he handled my questions with aplomb. US Immigration is an incredible bureaucracy, but he helped me wend my way through it.
I thought the price for his services was very reasonable. I highly recommend him.
I have known Allan for several years now and have worked with him both as a colleague and under his direction on legal matters. I have also been a client of his on my own matter. Allan has the highest ethical standards and cares about his clients. He is reasonable in the way he works with clients. I recommend him. Mike
Allan Lolly made 3 serious mistakes that cost us a great deal of money and wasted time.
1. Allan Lolly advised me that, before applying for US citizenship, I should give up my current green card and apply for a new one since I had traveled quite a bit outside of the US in the past years. I hired him to complete the forms for $2000 (in addition there were application, medical and other costs--some unexpected). When I finally went for my Immigration interview, I was told by the Immigration Officer, after this long application process that lasted several months, that there was no reason to have applied for a new green card since there was nothing wrong with the one I had had since 1977. This cost us a great deal both in fees, other expenses and lost work time.
2. Ten minutes before going into the immigration interview I finally managed to get Allan Lolly on the phone. He told me as I was about to walk into the interview that my case might be thrown out and that we would then have to gofor litigation.
3. Lolly was impossible to reach by phone after the first generous interview. We urgently asked to speak with him when it appeared that the information given by his paralegal, Taylor Collins, was different from that we later received from the US Government (this affected my ability to do my work) and also when we had burning questions regarding our interview with US Immigration, that were not covered in the handout he sent us.
All phone queries took an extremely long time. We had the impression that we had to wait while the receptionist, Jennifer, seemed to actually be walking back and forth between her desk and the office of the paralegal to get answers to our questions.
My husband and I initially chose Allan Lolly because he was very generous with his time during the free intake interview and discussed our case with us in detail. Also all recommendations we read except one, about Allan Lolly were positive. The one bad reference complained about difficulties in communications with the office and rudeness. This one negative reference proved to be totally accurate in the experience of myself and my husband.
For just over a year I have tried to forget this most unpleasant and very costly experience, but I can not ignore my conscience any longer and feel it is important to warn others not to have any dealings with Allan Lolly or the people he employs.
We had a pleasant process, while working with Mr. Lolly and his associates. They were knowledgeable and always helpful with whatever we needed. We highly recommend their services.
This review is long over due and for that I apologize to Allen Scott Lolly and Taylor. I first came in contact with Allan Lolly June 15, 2012 when my husband was denied his visa from the Nigerian Embassy. I was not really trusting of lawyers plus had money constraints which was why I decided to do my husbands paperwork myself in the beginning. It was upsetting for me to not only learn that they were trying to deny my husbands visa but were trying to revoke his whole application by claiming that our marriage was a sham. Their reason for claiming it was a sham was because we met on a dating site and I didn't wear a wedding dress. When I contacted Allen he was very attentive and listened to all that I had to say. He explained what was needed for my situation which was kind of hard to do because I was so emotional at the time. He really was patient with me and helped me to understand that although my emotions were involved, at this point what was needed was to plan an attack from a legal aspect and he was totally right. It took a whole year for the USCIS to contact me regarding my husbands denial letter and revocation of my husbands visa from May 2012-2013 at which time they said if we didn't respond within 30 days to the allegations then his application would be revoked. However, the time I received the letter we actually had less than a month to get all of the documentation together and sent to them. We only had three weeks when I received their letter. Basically we would have to start all over again from step one if my husband was revoked. We had initially started our application in 2010 after getting married in June it was now May of 2013 and they were trying to make us go back to square one. With this shortened time period and with Allen and his associates we managed to get all the documents and briefs together within the time limit. I have to say I was on pins and needles this whole time period because I didn't want to start all over again. I am happy to say December 6, 2013 my husband received an email confirming another appointment at the Lagos Embassy for and interview. He received his visa on January 2, 2014 and I am happy to say will be with me here in the United States on March 24, 2014. Thank you so much Allen Lolly I will be contacting you again in the future for any and all immigration needs. Your company was both very understanding and timely in everything that they did and assisted me with and for that I am so grateful. I was really new to all of this immigration run a round and documentation but you were very helpful in explaining to me step by step what the process was and what the outcomes could be or could not be. I appreciate your honesty and your candor in all you did for me and my husband. This write up in know way covers all that you and your associates have done, you have gone above and beyond for the both of us and for that we are both very thankful and grateful to you. I highly recommend this firm to all.
I would like to take this opportunity to say that the service offered by Allan Lolly Law Firm has been highly impressive. Allan's service has been excellent and every member of your staff has been courteous, polite and reliable.
My first time applying for a K-1 Visa. Allan's Law Firm has made processing easy and less stressful for me.
My Fiancee Visa processing was stopped due to document problems at the U.S. Embassy. Allan's Law Firm was quick to react and helped with the problem.
I am happy to say her Visa was approved, she received her passport, and will be joining me soon.
Thanks again Allan and to my case manager Cynthia.
