I am a US Citizen and my husband's immigrant visa was denied. He was subjected to a 10 year bar from entering the US because of his prior unlawful stay in the US and entry without inspection. He was stuck in Mexico for a long time while I and kids are living here in California. It was very hard for me to bear the separation and raise the kids by myself. I contacted Jay. Jay explained the issues very well and informed me that it was a very difficult case, because of prior visa violation, illegal entry, and couple of years of unauthorized stay. Jay did not sugar coat or made any false promises, and explained the facts as they were. He filed a hardship waiver on behalf of my husband. He was very detailed in his brief and supporting documents. Jay argued about country conditions in Mexico, hardship for me and my kids to relocate, and several other humanitarian arguments. It took several months, but USCIS finally approved the case. Then Jay helped to schedule interview at Ciudad Juarez consulate. My husband's unlawful presence and illegal entry was forgiven and he was granted an immigrant visa. My husband is going to be here within next two weeks, and our entire family is looking forward to this. We have waited so long, and I cannot express the joy this brings to us. We are very thankful for all the help and guidance Jay has provided for us throughout the case. Jay was very helpful and easy to reach and very good at returning emails and phone calls. I don't know if I could have done this without his help .

I would absolutely recommend Jay Terkiana, for handling most difficult of the cases. He handled my very complicated case and got I-140 approved. I am an international swimmer, and was looking to apply for EB-1 (Extraordinary Ability) green card. I filed I-140 through an attorney who received a request for evidence on my case. The attorney was not very confident in my case. Then I approached Jay Terkiana, who advised me very diligently on what evidence will fulfill the requirements for EB-1 green card under extraordinary ability alien. Jay prepared a very nice response to my RFE, and documented my portfolio and achievements very well. USCIS approved my I-140. I am very happy and looking forward to receive my green card. Jay is really detailed and very thorough in his writing. He knows and understands the issues very well and handles the problems very well.

He did my case very seriously, first list all the required materials I need to prepare, and keep updating the status of my need-to-be-prepared materials, he also keep communicating with me and ask me if I had any questions during the preparation.

Jagbir Singh Terkiana is working with my company helping four of us on the H1B case. Fortunately, we all got approved I have to say this all thanks to Jay. He is extremely detail oriented, responsible and patient. At the first phase, he could explain all the details about application and processing to us, and help us analyze every individual case based on our actual situation. He also could update the information in time, I always could get an emails when my case was received or got approved, he was always the first person who inform me. Jay is the best!

I turned to Jagbir for help after my first H1B transfer petition got denied. I then got an offer from another company but still were very worried about the influence from the previous denial. After reviewing my case, Jagbir helped me with choosing a more suitable title with my new application and looked into every detail in the paperwork to make sure the risk of being denied is reduced to the minimum.
Jagbir and his assistant Cheng were very patient and helpful in the whole process of my petition. My H1 Visa was approved smoothly the second time thanks to their wonderful job.

We approached Jay Terkiana to assist our brand new startup company to file an H-1B for our first employee. Initially we thought, Jay's services were expensive. But soon we realized by the amount of time, attention and dedication that he put to our case that he is totally worth it. We were very impressed with his knowledge of immigration law and he explained us in great detail, what challenges startup businesses face when filing H-1Bs. He explained us how USCIS reviews H-1B for a brand new company with zero revenues and educated us on some of the very important requirements that we were not aware of, such as what USCIS considers Employer-Employee Relationship and Right to Control H-1B Applicant's job. Before contacting Jay, we contacted several attorneys. Jay seemed to be on entire another level and knew what he was doing and talking about. He guided us in advance on what USCIS will question and how to be prepared for the same. He explained us how to meet the requirements of "Ability to Pay Wages" when company has just started and what USCIS expects in a business plan for a start-up company. Lot of evidence was provided to prove the existence of a valid and actual job and establishing that the job qualifies as a Bachelor's Degree level job. After filing the initial petition, we waited for the decision. USCIS issued an RFE, raising issues we discussed before hand - "Employer-Employee Relationship", "Ability to Pay", "Bachelor Degree Level Job", "Right to Control", "Availability of sufficient work", "nature of business / office size / future plans, etc.". Thanks to Jay we were ready, and had all the documentation available to assert our position. Those things, that were not available, we provided arguments why it was not available, and established that it is very certain that our startup will be a success and will generate good revenue. The case was approved very quickly under premium processing. He was available over his cell phone throughout the process and spent tremendous amount of time on the strategy, documentations, compliance requirements, etc. We never had to go through any paralegals or clerks or receptionists. He was directly involved with the case.

Jay Terkiana is very kind. He took good care of my case. He has very strong experience in handling L-1A visa. He understands all the technicalities involved in setting up a new office in US using L-1. He explained all the requirements and challenges involved with start-up companies. During his initial review, he spotted some hard points and advised how to satisfy USCIS requirements. He is very knowledgeable about corporate and immigration law for new startups business. We received a request from immigration for L-1. Jay prepared a very detailed response. Jay provided very detailed organization details, payroll records, degree certificates, and many other documents to convince immigration to approve the case. His assistant Cheng Chen is also very great person. Cheng Chen coordinated financial documents over wechat to provide nonstop updates. I am very happy with Jay Terkiana.
