Very honest, professional and efficient!
Amy and her whole team are amazing and they are the reason why our family is back together. They are very professional and at the same time caring and honest. Every time we had a question about my immigration process, they were quick to respond and patiently answered any questions we had. I definitely recommend them, and I’ll continue doing so, to any friends and family.

Great Lawyer
After so many years of dealing with my husband's case Amy and her team were always on top of everything. Loved the dedication to the smallest detail, the communication, even to the smallest update was always there. Graciously responded/listened to our questions and suggestions and always advised us on the best approach without dismissing our fears and doubts. We had many denials and my husband's case was a little weird and not clear on USCIS side as to why they were denying his residency. Even if months passed by with no update from USCIS Amy and her team always touched based with us. After seven years and Amy's guidance we had a happy result and now my husband is a legal resident . Cannot recommend her enough. Her expertise and professionalism is always something that will stay with us forever.

Excellent Attorney
After having worked with four other attorneys, in an attempt to get my green card, Amy Wax accomplished it finally. Amy found an obscure law and was able to use it. In my case I am forever grateful.

Absolutely amazing
I consulted with Amy after she had success with my mothers immigration case and this was by far the best thing I have ever done. She is so professional, intelligent, and kind. Although an immigration process can be stressful she made it stress free she is truly the best and I would go back if ever needed.

Professional and knowledgeable as they come
From the first consultation with Amy I knew right away that I found the right person to help with my citizenship application. I had tried on my own in the past but was unsuccessful due to 1 small discrepancy. I explained this to Amy and she said, that shouldn't be a problem. I spent 8 years trying to apply and Amy got it done in under a year. It would've been sooner if not for Covid. She is one of the nicest person I've met with. She wants her clients to succeed from what I notice. Amy gave me all the information I needed to prepare for the Civics exam and even tested me. I failed. That lit a fire under my butt. Amy guided me and gave me loads of advice to prepare for the real exam. I answered 6 correctly in a row! And I'm not a history buff at all. The only regret that I have is, I wish I had known about Amy alot sooner! Would I recommend Amy M. Wax to my friends? 100% YES!

Strongly Recommend!
From our 1st consultation until the day my wife became a citizen Amy displayed a strong knowledge of the law and an honest steady approach to our challenging process. Every step of the process Amy explained what to expect and there were never any surprises for us. We also appreciated her hard work, honesty and always being transparent. Her knowledge of the law and the immigration process is impeccable! I certainly would not hesitate to seek Amy’s assistance if needed in the future and recommend her highly!

Competent, experienced, agile, excellent services.
Since the first appointment, first meeting, She explained everything clear and everything happened as her orientations. Her assistants Samantha and Tyler were always quick, helpful and friendly. A friend recommended her to me, I recommended her to other people and I highly recommend Amy. She is very professional, friendly, experienced, and competent.

By far the best Lawyer for the job
Attorney Amy helped me out big time, felt at ease during the whole process. She explained everything in detail and made the process a better learning experience. I highly recommend her to any one seeking to get his permanent resident card. I am very grateful for the help I have received from Amy Wax regarding receiving my permanent resident (Green Card) and the help that she still offers for me applying for the naturalization. I also do not want forget to thank her office team that were very professional and helpful walking me through any issue I face in the process and make it clear and understandable ... My case was a little bit complicated she took it and convert everything to benefit me...the results are my witness

Professional, Kind and Optimistic - Exactly What You Need from Your Immigration Lawayer
This is a warm recommendation for Amy, and I would take her again in a heartbit. Here's why. Amy helped me and my husband with our naturalization process. It was a rather unique case, because we knew ahead of time that we need to spend a lot of time abroad during our 5-year physical presence requirement, and we were also worried about quiestions regarding our continued residency. It ended up being a 3 year affair, in which we consulted with Amy about every step of the process - how do we count the days for the 5 years? What do we need to do in advance to increase the chances we will pass the interview? How often do we need to be in the US to make sure we keep our residency... and so on. Amy was amazing. She patiently expalined all the risks of each step we take and gave helpful tips on avoiding hard questions. She told us which documents to obtain and when, and helped us assess where we stand at any part of the process. Both of our interviews were tough - a lot of hard questions, asking for more documents, putting us in very stressful positions of potentially having to fly back and forth several times for more interviews (during COVID!). But Amy didn't stress out, was assertive and helpful. Together, we were able to complete the interviews, including the additional documents, on the same day. All in all - this is what we were looking for - someone with the right advice and a helpful, optiomistic approach through a very stressful process. After 3 years of going through this, I'm happy to recommend Amy to anyone. Thanks Amy!

The Best of Seven.
On my first consultation with Amy Wax I was very distressed, agitated and my "heart was weeping". After she reviewed the facts and documentation in my immigration case; she gave me TWO solutions. So I hired her. But she had only nine days to answer USCIS in Texas before removing procedures. She always answered my emails and explained in English, Portuguese or in Spanish language; over and over in how the law was by my side. I recognize that I was a disturbed client. When we went to the USCIS office for the permanent Resident card interview, she was dressed very professionally but, with a huge and heavy black backpack, I asked her what she had inside it, and she replied: BOOKS! because if they do not understand your case, I will explain it to them. Today Thanks to her professionalism and knowledge of USA immigration laws I am a American Citizen! Just one thing I never told her. That before knocking into her office's door I have consulted with six (6) immigration lawyers, none of them had a positive answer for my case. I will forever recommend her to any immigration issues to the people I know. Thanks a million times Dr Amy Wax!!!

Best Attorney in town!!! Hire her right away!!!
I interviewed multiple attorneys for PR application before I hired Amy. I had a complicated case with 2 arrest records on file. She was the only one who reviewed my dispositions, made the effort to reach out to my criminal attorney in another city, and confirmed if those dispositions will lead to a deportation or not (since one of them was sealed). She did all of this before I even hired her. I knew at that moment that she is not here for money but to help people in need. Amy explained the entire process every step of the way, answered any question we had, prepared such a rock-solid package that there was no inquiry on my arrest records at all during the interview. Amy and her team are responsive, attentive, thorough, and professional. The entire application process took less than 10 months and I received my PR in Oct of last year. I will be hiring her for my naturalization as well.

Successful Match
Amy Wax has been my Attorney on Immigration matters for many years now. As two people doing business I can say Amy and I were a great match from the beginning, a match meant to be successful. Because of her incredible professionalism filled with a great human heart, I'll tell to anyone who listens how luck I was to have her representing me on my legal matters. Amy has great communication skills explaining things in a manner that anyone is able to understand; she's accountable for the work she does, working with great respect for people and always having the client's best interest at heart, aiming to respect their privacy. Amy is someone who understands the pressure on ones with concerns related to Immigration; always discussing difficult issues effectively to the point. She has been great working on my case for many years, which had a very successful outcome- I have just been sworn in as an American Citizen and other than God, that happened only because of Amy's expertise, organization and the great human being that she is. Not only as a great Professional Immigration Attorney, I consider her a friend who was ALWAYS available for me at every step of the way- reason of my very successful story. I'd recommend Amy Wax as an attorney any time to anyone who is in need of a professional with excellence. In my case I couldn't have had anyone better.
