She is the one who saved me. I knew her when I was on Ankle bracelet for 10 months and on deportation process with expire stay. Assylum case denied everywhere( imm officer, judge, BIA, 9 Circuit). My Wife kick me out. I-360. On of my instructor at school refer me to Karen and she was the ONE. She emailed, called,... send me everything regarding my case. She got my green card for me. It is a blessing. Am writing a book about my case. I wished I would known her in 1st place

My experience with Karen Gilbert was truly outstanding. She is a highly experienced and knowledgable lawyer, the communication throughout the process was simply excellent, and I am deeply impressed by her efforts to ensure a smooth, swift, and successful outcome. Thanks to her professional stewardship, we were able to obtain my green card in record time. I'd like to wholeheartedly recommend Karen's services to anyone. Thank you Karen!

Ms. Karen Gilbert of the Law Office of Karen Gilbert assisted me with the consular registration for US citizenship of my two sons and the consular processing for US immigration of my wife and daughter. She was extremely professional, understanding of our needs and courteous. She helped with the paperwork and was always available for any clarifications or queries regarding the official process. It would have been a tortuous and difficult process without her help. She has an efficacious and adept understanding of the immigration legal process. She is very affable and accessible, and explains the legal process in simple and easy to understand terms. I thank her for being so gracious, considerate and supportive.

Karen handled my immigration really well. I am an Brazilian who married an American girl and Karen helped me navigate through all of our options, choose what was best for us and handled all of the paper work with minimal effort on our part. My overall impression was that she was very professional, efficient, and made an otherwise difficult and stressful process, relatively pain free. Two years later, I have a great job, a beautiful child, and I would definitely recommend Karen to couples with immigration questions.

Karen made the Naturalization process easy. She is honest and knowledgeable. She first helped me obtain Permanent Residency. Her guidance in filling the application and her presence during the interview helped the process be efficient. I recently got Naturalized and I am very thankful to Karen for her help and standing for human rights.

I was introduced to Karen by a friend who was also a former client of hers.
Karen was very understanding of my unique situation and very encouraging and eager to help. She was very thorough and researched the options from every angle, advised me on what I should and shouldn't do (and why), and within a few months was successful in resolving an immigration issue that I'd been trying for many years to resolve through 2 other well regarded Immigration Attorneys. Her fees were fair and reasonable given the amount of time she spent doing research.
I am happy to say that, thanks to Karen, I am now not only a legal resident, but a Citizen of the United States.

After my parents had filed my immigration forms about 13 years ago i had lost hope on ever getting my residency to the US altogether, i got to know Karen through my brother whom she helped to acquire his US citizenship. She helped with fixing all the discrepancies in my file and in a very short time i and my whole family (wife and two kids) managed to become american residence. I recommend her to any one who needs an attorney regarding immigration and hopefully will use her expertise to get my citizenship when the time arrives.

She gave us appropriate advice and was present at the time of interview and took the guesswork out of the process. We did have a transfer of case from another country and some confusion in the process, but she was able to handle the transition without any problems,

My family came to America in the Early 80's. We tried very hard to get citizenship at the time in NY. After 5 years of spending time and money, we still did not receive our citizenship. A few years later we moved to Seattle and met Karen. She helped us get our citizenship within 2 years.

Karen has been my families' immigration lawyer for more than 20 years now. She sucessfully won every case for us. You can't believe how sharp her sense is to approach each issue and how quickly she can find solutions to each problem. Karen is an amazing lawyer, I would strongly recommand her to anyone who needs help in immigration matters.

I had a difficult naturalization case. Thanks to Karen's in depth knowledge of the immigration law , experience and professionalism I am a US citizen now. Karen filled out all the paperwork, advised me when I needed it and kept me informed. She was present at my naturalization interview, which helped me to stay calm. If you have immigration issues and looking for representation, I recommend contacting Karen L. Gilbert.

Karen is the best lawyer I have ever come across in my life. She is very disciplined, proactive and amazingly knowledgeable. She also keeps me and my wife updated on every progress she has made on our case. More than anything else, Karen is a very warm,patient, friendly and respectful person with whom you can have an open and professional discussion on your legal issues.
