Had a horrible previous immigration lawyer that completely ruined my case and ended up costing my wife and me a lot of money. The first I could tell that Attorney Jeff was different was that he gave me his personal cell phone number and told me that I could call him personally with questions. Much different that my previous lawyer, whom I couldn't even talk to but only was able to speak with the paralegal. Hire Attorney Jeff for your immigration needs, you won't be sorry.

We had the misfortune of dealing with an attorney boasting that he had 40+ years of experience. Well it turns out that even though he did our consultation, we never heard from him again and a paralegal worked on our whole case. I was really sick of the whole thing and we almost decided to work on the case ourselves, but my wife saw Jeff's column in the newspaper and so we called him. I am glad that we worked with his firm, they were there for us throughout the entire process. Jeff was always easy to talk to and he returned our calls quickly all the way up until we got approved. To anyone out there looking for a lawyer that won't give you B.S. but actually will care about your case, I say call this firm.

I can honestly say that the caring and friendly staff made this the best of 3 law firms we worked with over the past 6 or 7 years. Jeff was so helpful and helped finally put an end to my endless immigration process. I would gladly recommend the firm to anyone else in need of a superior customer service experience.

We talked to three lawyers that we found on Avvo and it was clear when we spoke to Mr. Khurgel that his approach was a cut above the rest. Reliable, personable and quick -- I highly recommend his firm.

Jeff helped me and my husband with a K-1 fiance visa petition and subsequent greencard and naturalization applications. He is clearly an expert in this area of law and always responded to our questions and concerns in a timely and professional way. I'm an attorney and can say with conviction that Jeff is truly one of the best immigration attorneys I've had the pleasure of working with. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

Jeff was my roommate the first year of law school so I got to observe first hand his tremendous work ethic, attention to detail, and legal brilliance. When I heard he became a specialist in immigration law, it was an easy decision to hire him to handle my wife's fiance visa and petition for permanent residency. Jeff is the consummate professional and his expertise in the immigration arena developed from years of practicing in the trenches as well as representing the United States as a consular officer provides him with a unique perspective and invaluable insight into the often enigmatic immigration policies and laws of the United States of America. Bottom line, we encountered some unexpected obstacles during the fiance visa interview process, but Jeff was able to help us navigate the treacherous process and guide us through the interview and appeal process with minimum stress. As a result of Jeff's brilliant and expert legal chops, my wife can now call herself a permanent resident of this fine country. If you are looking for a top-notch, experienced immigration attorney, don't call the big law firms who will assign your case to an inexperienced junior associate and treat you like a number - JUST CALL JEFF!

This law firm helped us with our waiver to keep by husband in the U.S. Attorney Khurgel and his staff were supportive and confident the whole way and that made us have the courage to move ahead with our case even though there was always the chance of denial. Thanks very much to this firm!

Used this law firm for our case and had a good experience. Attorney Khurgel properly apprised us of the problems in our case and how we could fix them, the office was convenient in the middle of Irvine and the staff was very responsive.

I was apprehensive about going to another immigration lawyer because I had previous negative experiences, but Jeff really set us at ease. We had a case that has been stuck since July 2009, but he explained everything to my husband and I clearly, then held our hand through the whole process including the interview down in San Diego. If you want someone who gets to the point, but is never too rushed to answer questions about your case, contact Jeff.

I highly recommend Khurgel. The law firm is quick, professional and compassionate. A very friendly staff that is willing to work with you even if you're not located in CA. I've referred two friends so far and they have also been pleased.

Several of my employees were denied at their interviews at an embassy. One attorney that I went to said there would be little hope for our visas, but if i paid him US12,000 he would try it. Jeff was on top of it from the first time we met and was able to work on the case for a better price too. So far four from the five have already been approved, and we are hoping that the last one will come next week. I had a very good experience with this lawyer and would recommend it.

I can't recommend Jeff highly enough for the assistance with changing my employer for my H-1B. I spoke with him by the phone, and next day he already had my documents and was working on the visa. He filed for me premium processing, and I've just received my I-94 for another three years. Go to this firm for good service with no delay!

Attorney Jeff was awesome. I came to see him and basically only had to walk across the street from UCI. I called late in the evening on a Friday, and he even agreed to see me on a Saturday because my I-20 had expired and I needed to leave the country soon. With his help, I was able to depart knowing what I would need to do to be able to return. He even spoke to my DSO and took the time to explain the situation to my parents on Skype. Highly recommend for UCI students!!

Our case was in immigration court for 7 years after another attorney made a mistake in our case. We went to three lawyers that said we probably didn't have much of a chance. Attorney Jeff put us at peace when he took over the case, and was able to see it through till the end. Now my husband, two children and I have our Green Cards and my son is going to college next year. I highly recommend this attorney if you want someone honest, hardworking and responsive to any questions.

Jeff was very thorough and made us feel comfortable from the get-go. I would highly recommend his firm to anyone wanting a straightforward and reliable approach.

I can only say good things about Jeff's assistance to my company in opening our affiliate office in
Irvine. Several attorneys we talked to said our case was probably doomed after we got a request for evidence from USCIS, but his skillful briefing got us an approval. He took us through the process with great patience and was prompt responding to questions from our end.
