I can to Leslie after having worked with 3 different immigration attorney. The first was good but he quit his practice, the second missed a deadline and is currently investigated by the BBO, and the third never did anything wrong but made me feel like I was bothering him anytime I had a question. Leslie restored my trust in immigration attorneys! I came to her with a messy case, a very tight deadline, and severe trust issues. She navigated my immigration situation seamlessly and managed to get an approval for a petition that had very little chances of going through. She is kind, professional, diligent, and has a sense of humor! You cannot go wrong with Leslie and I highly recommend her.

We worked with Leslie for my marriage based residency application. Throughout the process, Leslie and her team were very responsive, professional, meticulous and helped us sail through the interview. I would certainly recommend Leslie to my friends and colleagues for any immigration related issues.

As a foreigner in the US, life sometimes brought me to unexpected dead ends. Luckily, Atty. Leslie has been a miracle worker who guided me back to the right path each time.
About 10 years ago, when I was an F1 international student, I reached out to a few large immigration law firms to help me apply for my H1B work visa. But it turned out they were not interested in my case because my education and work experience were somewhat unconventional. This meant that they would have to put in lots of extra thought into my application.
Then I met Atty. Leslie, and was immediately impressed by her optimism and her genuine interest in my success. She was very knowledgeable, meticulous and patient. Since then, she has successfully secured my H1B permits, renewals, Green Card requirements etc.
Many years down the line, I found myself in a very dangerous situation because of an abusive spouse. When I finally gathered the courage to share this with Leslie, she again came to my rescue, referred me to the right experts, and helped me transition to a U victim status which offered me another chance to rebuild my life and happiness.
I am forever indebted to Leslie, and strongly feel that her combination of expertise, insight and kindness are unparalleled.
