I feel really really relaxed and confident when he agreed to handle my case. I would like to thank him from within. He made my tough case so easy.! I also like to recommend Mr.Vard R Johnson to anyone who are in hard time at immigration case. Thanks a load again to Mr.Vard R Johnson.

I contacted Mr. Vard 24 hours after a respectable Boston immigration lawyer told me I had no chance whatsoever to succeed in my case. Mr. Vard who is very honest, very articulate and seemingly patient took two months to bring the matter into fruition. We never went to court and he didn't charge me very high.

I'm extremely happy to choose Vard as my attorney. His experience and knowledge brings such a unique advantage among immigration lawyers. My I-140 case and following appeal were all denied and I was frustrated to hear from other lawyers that my best bet is to start over. But that means I will lose my priority date and my green card process will be delayed for about another 3 years, and of course my employer and me have to spend more money. His experience differentiate him from other lawyers by suggesting a totally different path for which other lawyers won't feel comfortable. Just because of this different approach, my case was re-opened and got approved in less than ONE MONTH! My priority date was kept and money saved. It's really a miracle to me!
I recommend attorney Vard Johnson without any reservation! He is the best attorney I have ever met.

Without reservation, I wholeheartedly endorse Attorney Johnson's work. He brings a wealth of knowledge, years of experience and a personal touch to every legal problem he works on for the benefit of clients as well as the legal community.
