Damon handled my case with exceptional care. I whole-heartedly recommend him.
Facing my second DUI in 4 years, and the first one being a deferred judgment; I was facing 2 counts in 2 different courts. It is seldom that you get lucky, and due to an arresting officer’s error in their report you have your case dismissed. Most often damage control (pain management) is the best you can ever hope for. I didn’t get lucky. And, I must say that Damon did exactly just that for me—maximum damage control. He was very responsive to all of our communications. He was extremely organized when it came to the details of my case. With all court appearances he was meticulous and ready to argue my case and was prepared with all legal defense laws applicable . His fee was more than enough fair for the level of competency he brought to the table. When it came to my sentencing I did receive most favorable outcome possible given the situation. Yes, I would recommend Damon to any of my friends or family if they are ever in need of legal counsel!
Damon provided review of the rental agreement I used for years with multiple tenants. He provided important comments and revisions to the document in a timely manner to help me expedite my apartment rental. Damon kept a great line of communication open and provided the candid feedback I needed.
Damon Shadid took the time to listen to my concerns, and hear my entire story. He asked the right questions, and was patient and calm. He offered me practical advice, which I took. My situtation ended up not needing legal council, but in the future, I will be sure to use Damon's assistance if needed. And I've referred him to several friends who have had success with their own claims. He is knowledgeable, well rounded, and very easy to work with.
Damon is by far the best immigration lawer you can get.He is knowledgeable and confident and the result was as expected.Got the greencard even some issues were there along the way.i strongly recommend him
Damon Shadid is without a doubt the best lawyer I have ever encountered. My husband and I hired him for my adjustment of status application and though it was a bit more complex than expected, Damon went above and beyond to make it happen. He is honest, hard working, professional, real, responsive, and on top of it all the time.
After getting married, my husband and I went in to apply for my permanent residency only to discover that I had a two year home requirement to fulfill before adjusting my status. I came to the U.S on an exchange student visa (J-1) that required me to go home for two years and then come back to the U.S. I, however, was offered a scholarship to finish my education and was granted an F-1 visa. Though, I came back to the U.S legally, I never fulfilled the 2 year requirement. This became a problem when we learned that those who haven't fulfilled the requirement are not eligible to adjust their status unless they were granted a waiver.
Damon, of course, was determined to get the waiver and do what it takes to adjust my status. Getting the waiver was not an easy process, but with his help, we were able to obtain a No Objection based waiver in three months. Shortly after, we began the adjustment of status application.
Damon was always on time and made sure to walk us through each and every detail of the process. He was present at every encounter we had with USCIS and prepared us for what to expect.
I received my green card at the end of October,2012. This could not have happened without Damon's determination, intelligence, organization, care, and knowledge. We will always be thankful to everything he's done for us. Thank you, Damon!
