Mercy helped me obtain my work permit 2 years ago, this time she helped me renew it. I couldn't be happier with everything she has done for me, she is very trustworthy and she is very easy to reach but that wont be necessary because shes a responsible attorney. my sister is also going through the same process but ill let her describe her experience.
Ms Sequeira is very professional and knowledgeable about the various immigration policies and visa details about USA. She is good and very helpful always responding to our queries and emails. We appreciate her immensely .
Told me from the beginning about how much Time & Money it would take for a Fiance Visa (K1) from Mexico to go through. When we needed her most was when we were in Ciudad Juarez & needed paperwork, she came through everytime. Bottom line we got the green light for the K1 Visa because of her. Without her I wouldn't of had the patience to do this by myself. Waiting is the hardest part & there is plenty of that , but when you know it upfront it's a little more tolerable. Communication is the most important part to me & she was on the level which was quite refreshing.
Thanks for no "bad" surprises Mercy
I was looking for a lawyer so I went on a search for one. In the end I had a choice of 3 of them but what ended me choosing Mercy was how informed she was on my type of case compared to the other lawyers who instead sent their paralegals to sort out my case. The other paralegals told me things like "well I'm not sure , let me call my partner" or "yeah I think" we can do that.". Something that I really didn't want to hear. So when I went with Mercy I could totally see the differance. I explained my case to Mercy and right away explained to me all the steps and what exactly would happen. I got all my questions answered and my papers put together to be sent out. I also liked the way she worked because she put together my file a certain way so the office reviving it could just flip through and check. I think she did everything in a timely matter and I especially like that ahem personally handles everything so you know that those years of experience are going to be used with you. And even still when we had a price miscommunication she was really understanding and ended up working something out. Over all having Mercy as a lawyer gave me peace of mind because it was really easy to tell that she knew how to handle my type of case. The only downside was that I lived about a hour away from her office but even then she fixed it up so that I would only have to come a couple times . but I think it was way worth it because my case got approved and I could not be anymore happier!!
My case for AOS was straightforward and Mercy was prompt, knowledgable and very responsive throughout the process. Would definitely recommend her.
"Mercy Sequeira is an excellent and thoroughly competent lawyer. She worked on my petition for the K1 Fiance visa. Mercy experienced the added challenge and difficulty of working on my application whilst based in Sunnyvale, California while I was still living in Australia. Through-out the whole process, I always found Mercy to be patient, thorough and highly competent in all her representations and dealings with me. Mercy has always been very clear and concise in her explanations of every stage of the visa process. I found her costs to be upfront and reasonable. It has been a pleasure in working with Mercy. I would highly recommend her."
It has been close to six years since I have been Mercy's client. It has always been a pleasure working with her, ever since I first approached her. I had my EB2 national interest waiver petition approved through Mercy. She is very knowledgeable, very approachable, easy to reach and easy to communicate with. In addition, she has always been very prompt in filing my paperwork, ensuring that nothing got delayed. Her advise on several immigration matters has proved invaluable to me over the years.
I was having a hard time with my case and my prior attorney was not helping at all. I needed a good and experienced attorney and found Mercy here at AVVO. We communicated numerous times through Email and phone, and all replies were prompt and was as right on the dot.
When we were ready to file any documents, she would carefully explain why and what there were for.
Me and my husband are thankful that we met miss mercy.she is nice and very knowledgeable about immigration. Before coming to her office,we consulted a "celebrity immigration lawyer",and it was very unpleasant coz all the lawyer talked about was how expensive the cAse will be since its complicatd.he is suppose to give us 1hr consultation but only lasted for 30 mins and no good news.then we went for miss mercy and she gave us not an hour consultation but it seems like two hours coz she was very detail.she is very honest,straight to the point and considerate to her clients.she is always available to her clients.my husband and i are very happy that for four months after filing the adjusted,we got my husbands resident card! I highly recommend her :)
Mercy was available when I had questions during my naturalization process and helped fill out the required forms.
