A Lawyer you can trust!
I can't express our gratitude to Monique and her team. She is very experienced, and provided invaluable assistance to us. She hit the nail on the head with all her recommendations, and was also extremely professional and provided clear guidance throughout the process. I personally could not have asked for a better immigration attorney, and more importantly, one that you can have full faith and trust in. We really appreciate what she does, and the care we received from her.

Amazing experience
I worked with Monique during my green card application and everything went very smooth. She asked about all possible documents that USCIS may need to process my case when we were filing the case which helped us skipping the potential RFE in the future that could slow down the process. She did not waste any time in submitting my application and was very quick in responding to my emails during the process. I highly recommend Monique, you will have a smooth and efficient experience with her.

Fantastic professional attorney
With Monique's fantastic professional job, my H-1B transfer was approved only a few days after petition was submitted. Even without any RFE in these days, although my employer was a small company. Thanks to Monique's wonderful service. She always answered any questions promptly even in evenings and at weekend. Thank you so much, Monique!

Monique was amazing
Monique has helped us with my permanent resident card. She has been amazing! She is very thorough and created a very good case providing all the necessary documentation and much more. We got my permanent resident card without any issues. For the removal of condition she helped us provide a lot of documentation again - which I believe was the reason that we were not called for interview during this process. She has patiently answered all my questions throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend her.

I found Monique last minute for my H1-b case. She was able to immediately work with us to start the preparation and file the petition before the deadline. She was extremely knowledgeable and responsive throughout the process. Thanks to her, the case was approved a month before my cap-gap ends.

Would Highly Recommend
Monique was wonderful in helping me with my adjustment of status process. Her user friendly, online questionnaires make a complicated process extremely simple and everything is handled and coordinated on her end. She was always prompt to respond to questions or concerns and was present and hugely supportive at the interviews and throughout the entire case. She provided simple and easy to follow guidelines every step of the way. I will certainly be choosing to work with her again in the future.

Great H1-B Lawyer
Ms. Kornfeld was the lawyer for my manager's H1-B and Green card petition. So my manager recommended her to me to be my lawyer for my H1-b application. Ms. Kornfeld is a great immigration lawyer. She is very good at her job that my petition has already been approved without a request for evidence and in a record time. She is very responsive during the whole process and was able to answer all my questions in a timely manner. Ms. Kornfeld is a professional immigration lawyer and I had a great time working with her. I highly recommend you to consider her as your immigration lawyer.

My Immigration experience
My wife’s friend told me about Attorney Monique Cornfeld when i was in search for an attorney to help me file my Citizenship. The first time I spoke to attorney Monique was over the phone when I told her I needed her help to file my Citizenship. The first question she asked me was if I knew I could do it my self and I told her I didn’t want to take chances as it can sometimes be tricky. I knew right from the beginning that she was an honest Attorney. My first consultation with attorney Monique over the phone was like I was talking to an old friend, very nice and friendly. Attorney Monique is very very knowledgeable when it comes to Immigration and my case which I thought was going to be a difficult cas turned out to be very easy with her help and knowledge . She prepared me by requesting for every document that was relevant to my cas and at the interview yesterday, those were the documents the officer was asking for and she was right there answering questions on my behalf. I have dealt with a number of attorneys, attorney Monique was exceptional. I am glad and honored to have worked with her. By the way I passed my interview.

Great experience
I had great experience working with Monique on my immigrant petition. Monique and her firm guided me to an E portal that has a clear list of materials to submit. She would notice me via email really fast if I missed something. The whole process was very efficient and pleasant.

Exceptional immigration attorney
I had nothing but the best experience working with Monique in preparation for my US visa application. She is a very competent and knowledgeable attorney and displayed an impressive level of dedication to me as a client and my case from start to completion. What made my case more difficult is that I live outside the US and needed an attorney who could build a case by working remotely with their client. Monique was happy to communicate and work on my case entirely via email which as far as I am aware is not something that many attorneys are comfortable with. Throughout the process of preparing my application, Monique displayed an exceptional level of professionalism, communicated in a timely and clear manner and answered any and all questions I had. Despite the difficulty of working remotely on my case, I was completely informed and confident about the process at all times. Based on my experience of working with Monique as my attorney, I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with immigration representation.
