America, the land of hope, and opportunity. The dreams that all of us carry as we cross her borders. Then the reality of a daunting maze of bureaucracy as we hurriedly jump through the rabbit holes of the immigration system. My opportunities dwindled as the rabbit holes disappeared, and my dreams were fading as I was losing hope. Through a friends referral I contacted Adrienne and she started my case from scratch. She went through every detail of my whole process. I could see right away that Adrienne was a very competent immigration lawyer. What surprised me was how much she cared about my case. At times she made me feel that I was her only client. Today I am a proud citizen of the United States.

I am an HHMI postdoctoral scientist doing research in the field of biophysical sciences. Toward the end of my H1B status, I needed to apply for permanent residency to continue my work in the U.S. Adrienne has been extremely helpful during this process of applying for a green card through EB2 NIW. Other reviews posted here have concluded that Adrienne is professional, thoughtful, and helpful. I completely agree with these, and on top of that I would like to highlight two excellent qualities of her that I really appreciate and admire.
First, after I provided Adrienne my research materials (10 first-author research articles), she drafted a main petition letter that completely captured the essence and the significance of my work using words that are understandable for general readers. She truly demonstrated an excellent ability to be the interpreter between me as a scientist and USCIS officials. I believe that this quality is very important for any professionals looking for obtaining green cards.
Second, I found that Adrienne works hard and works efficiently. There were several occasions that we had email back and forth on Saturday evening discussing strategies to move my case forward. It also only took her 2 weeks to draft an excellent main letter for me. Due to her diligence and great ability to organize things, my petition was submitted within 2 months after our initial meeting.
Overall, I highly recommend Adrienne as your immigration lawyer. I am sure that you will find working with her is a great experience, and will produce successful results.

I retained Adrienne to get opinion on an employer contract. She was very considerate in setting up a time quickly, despite having a busy schedule. She caught on even the nuances in the contract, and was very professional in her conduct. Highly recommend her.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Adrienne through our legal community, and working with her through various conferences. She is an excellent attorney, and one whose advice I highly trust. There is no doubt Adrienne will provide her clients with the quality representation that they seek.
