Carrie is the absolute best lawyer ever! Honestly, if there was some sort of Worlds-Best-Lawyer-Contest, Carrie would win the Magic-Purple-Law-Trophy-of-Sweet-Sweet-Legal-Justice (I imagine that would be the First Place prize of said competition. It might also be some sort of crown or ribbon I guess.) Am I exaggerating? No. No I am not.
Seriously though- Last year, my husband and I were looking to get my status adjusted from F1 student to permanent residency. This issue was a pretty big stress for us, and as with most immigration cases, we feared a lot of the paperwork and hoops we would need to jump through just to prove the legitimacy of our relationship. So, given our fears, we did what many couples do and decided to find an immigration lawyer to help guide us. During our initial search we interviewed countless lawyers. How many lawyers are there in this field? Apparently a lot. Most of them ranged from acceptable to decent and one was even downright rude. Then, as if it were kismet, we came across Carrie. What a stroke of luck it was to discover her! As soon as we had our very first consultation with her it was clear as day that she was the absolute perfect choice to represent us. Carrie treated us with such professional care and attention while at the same time being sincere, responsive, supportive and personable.
Without fail during the length of our case, Carrie explained everything to us in terms we could understand, and whenever we had any questions or concerns- no matter how small or insignificant, she replied to us as if it was of utmost urgency. How fast did she reply you ask? Honestly, sometimes within minutes. We couldn't have asked for a more attentive immigration lawyer. On top of being a professional that we felt we could depend on, Carrie was a kind and thoughtful friend to us throughout the process.
As is typical of couples as lazy and awesome as us, my husband and I would sometimes procrastinate at keeping her updated (sorry Carrie!), but she was always encouraging and patient with us to get us back on track whenever we were behind on our list of things to do. Nearing our interview date, she checked in with us constantly to make sure that we were going to be comfortable on the day.
We can't recommend Carrie highly enough.
Best. Lawyer. Ever.
My husband and I went to Carrie for help applying to adjust my visa status from an F-1 student visa to permanent resident in August 2014. She provided a clear explanation of our options and what we should expect at every stage in terms of evidence to provide, questions we’d have to answer in interview, and timing. She also let me know I’d be able to apply for a temporary work permit at the same time as my adjustment application, which allowed me to get back to work 2 months earlier than I had been expecting. Throughout the process, she responded quickly and thoroughly to any questions we had, and found her to be personable, professional, and knowledgeable to the Nth degree. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough, and will certainly seek out her services for the removal of conditions and naturalisation processes.
Carrie won the citizenship case of our son the first tray! It was not an easy case, but because of Carrie’s hard work and commitment, the winning strategy had succeeded. Carrie is a very bright and diligent lawyer. She started the process with careful and intensive analysis of all details. Then she adopted an optimal strategy and formulated main arguments. And besides the high professional skills, Carrie has a very nice personality. It was easy to communicate with her. She works via the Internet connection and is available for questions at any time. If you need an immigration attorney, then Carrie is the best choice!
Carrie possess all of the qualities of a fantasy lawyer: Knowledgeable, passionate, thorough, a great listener, awesome problem-solver, diligent, persistent, responsive, prompt, funny, strong, non-judgmental, and quick.
My foreign husband and I approached her with a really complicated green card scenario. We had been going around and around with other lawyers, trying to figure out even how to approach the problem. Carrie not only immediately grasped the complexity of the situation, but offered realistic options and an organizational plan for getting the ball rolling.
We were extremely impressed with Carrie's breadth of knowledge of immigration law. Her confidence, passion, and caring really make us feel like we are in good hands and have a good chance of getting the results we are seeking.
Carrie is very knowledgeable and makes the process very simple. I highly recommend her.
She was present and available at every step of the way. Good immigration lawyer.
Working with Carrie has been an amazing journey. I was really impressed after our first meeting when I exposed my case. She needed to do some research before coming up with options to proceed. She said she would e-mail me soon, but I thought it would take her some days. I arrived home and checked my e-mail. To my surprise, I had an e-mail from her explaining what my options would be. Such a fast response spoke louder than words so I realized how committed, passionate, hardworking, thorough, responsible and diligent she was.
She is a great lawyer with a lot of experience in working with immigration cases. I thought the process would be really long, hard and overwhelming since I had to gather a lot of documents, but she is so detail oriented and organized that I didn’t see the days go by and very soon, the application package was ready to send. It is so easy to work with her through e-mails and phone calls. She is always there to answer questions that arise during the process and also discuss the best options to win the case.
Despite the fact that there are a lot terms used by attorneys that sometimes are quite difficult to understand, she always does her best to be as clear as possible as to the terms she uses in such a way that the client understands everything.
If you need an attorney for your immigration case, Carrie L. Rosenbaum is undoubtedly the right one. Believe me, you won’t regret it.
Ms. Rosenbaum successfully assisted my family with a difficult situation with Customs and Border Protection.
Eventhough we live in Indonesia and our communication were mainly through emails, she managed to explain everything very clearly about our situation, and work very hard to help us won the case.
We were very pleased with her work and would highly recommend her to those who may have the same situation as ours.
Carrie helped us win our green card case on the first try. She's smart, friendly and her fee was very reasonable. Most of all though, she went out of her way to make my husband and me feel comfortable throughout the process. I sent her an incredible number of emails with nervous questions, and each time she responded immediately with a thoughtful response and a reassuring message along the lines of "It's my job to help you... send me any questions you have." She believed in us and in our case from the get go, and this got us through some of the more trying moments of the process (like immigration losing a piece of our evidence, and waiting for the welcome letter).
After trying to deal with 4 other immigration lawyers I turned out to be lucky enough to find Carrie Rosenbaum:
1. We won from the first try!
2. Carrie is result-oriented -- she cared about winning my case (i.e. her professional reputation) more than about getting my money.
3. Her fee was reasonable and she worked very hard on my case. She spent quite a serious amount of time to carefully examine and research the specifics of my particular case.
4. Carrie was exceptionally diligent and attentive to all details.
5. Carrie gave me a really good understanding of how the law related to my case, she explained everything to me so I could understand what factors were in my favor and what parts of my case were harder.
6. Carrie was with me every time when I needed her. Every single one of the hundreds of my questions received a quick, comprehensive and clear answer.
I can say with confidence that Carrie Rosenbaum is a dedicated and honest professional.
Carrie Rosenbaum won my husband's case from the first attempt. The case itself wasn't easy and obvious and we were ready for an appeal.
While preparing the documents, Carrie was very meticulous, attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. She answered our numerous emails within half an hour, often less, in non-business hours too.
I highly recommend Carrie to those who need an experienced, honest and responsible lawyer.
