My family contracted the U.S. Immigration Law Group, LLP, in particular Ms. Lisa D. Ramirez, to help us petition for U Nonimmigrant Status Visas. This visa is very uncommon and only half of those that petitioned in 2012 were approved. As soon as I received the notice of approval, I contacted Ms. Ramirez to ask if study abroad was an option for me. I contracted Ms. Ramirez to help me through the visa process.
A little bit about myself:
I am a Mexican national who was brought across the boarder, at the age of two, without documentation. Growing up in an immigrant community, I was told to strive for college but not to think too much about study abroad. Currently I am a sophomore at Georgetown University, working towards a Bachelor's Degree in Linguistics and German.
Taking a chance:
I received a full scholarship to participate in a 5-week summer study abroad program in Trier, Germany. I knew this would be an experience of a life time and it was too good to pass up, if even the slightest opportunity to travel was a possibility. The conditions were that I had to be back in the U.S. within 90 days otherwise I would lose my visa status, the pathway to citizenship, disrupt my studies at Georgetown and get a 10 year ban from reentering the US. The processing time for getting the visa would require at least 6 weeks for notice of advance reentry, then about 2 weeks for getting an appointment and then another 7 business days to receive the visa- all of this assuming that I would get approved, it would go well and we would act with all speed. There was about a 2-3 week cushion. We all took a gamble. If all went well, then I would be free to travel afterwards.
We prepared all the paperwork, that would be necessary for submission once I was already outside the US, far in advance. The days leading up to my departure, we were also maintaining correspondence to double check that everything was ready to be sent on point. She sent me comforting emails, reassuring me that they would be with me every step of the process. About 3 weeks after the program had ended, I heard from Ms. Ramirez about the approval notice for advanced permission to reenter the States, which was received 10 days earlier. I immediately submitted the online non-immigrant visa application with the Berlin embassy. There was a problem with the system and it took a while for us to schedule an appointment. At my appointment, I was told that my visa class was not processed at that particular embassy. This was a mistake on the embassy's behalf. I was told to go to Frankfurt. Ms. Ramirez immediately began trying to schedule an appointment there but unfortunately the earliest available date would not allow me to return in time to the US, under normal processing time. Once when I was on the phone, feeling incredibly discouraged, she said, "Anything is possible." She reminded of the spirit of dreaming that initially propelled me into this. She contacted my Congress Representative, who then filed a congressional inquiry. As I was on my way to Frankfurt I received an apology from the Berlin embassy and got a next day appointment. I hitchhiked my way back to Berlin and was at the appointment the next morning. I was able to pick it up within 2 business days at the embassy. I had scheduled the earliest available flight to the US right after picking up my visa. I made it to US soil 11 hours before the stroke of the 90th day.
Ms. Ramirez and the team:
In terms of communication she was very quick to respond to my emails. Later, when we were pressed for time, she gave me her personal mobile phone so that I could call at any time. Given that there is a 9 hour time difference between CA and Berlin, I did wake her in the middle of the night. That meant a lot to me. Also, she sent flowers to the office of my congressional representative as a token of appreciation for their intervention. She often went above the call of duty.

Mrs. Lisa Ramirez was highly recommended for our specific immigration case over four years ago. Lisa is true professional with the dedication and compassion for her clients. She filed my husbands work visa and I-130 petitions. She also walked us through the process of the deportation proceedings. We continue to use her firm and now are preparing additional petitions for family in Central America.
Deep appreciation and gratitude to Lisa.

We had hired this lawyer years ago to help us. She actually has cost us a lot of money that we NOW have to undo some of the paperwork she filed. I wish we could have had someone more knowledgeable and competent overseeing our case. Do not waste your time WAITING for this lawyer to come from her home to see you (while you wait outside her office.) It is a waste of money, and time and completely disappointing!

I wish to express my gratitude to you and all of BussImmLaw. Your keen insights and carefully crafted paperwork has once again changed a person's life, and future. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart and my family's hearts.
Your profession is one of influence; to influence an enormous machine (the USCIS), in order to better people's lives. That is an art-form. And - as my though case has proven - you master this art-form.
Lisa, and her collegue Monica at BussImmLaw have helped me and 4 members of our family become the proud owners of a greencard. And that after we had worked with MANY expensive lawyers previously, whose mistakes had to be fixed by BussImmLaw.
