Great Experience for K1 Visa and Green Card
I cannot recommend Nareg enough! My wife and I worked with Nareg from the start of our K1 Visa thru our application into Green Card. From our first meeting in person, to the last email sent on our cases Nareg was prompt, professional and had a deep understanding of the immigration process. From our first meeting for our K1 Visa he took our situation seriously, began devising a strategy for how we would collect evidence, guided us on the complex forms that we needed to fill out, double checked EVERYTHING we sent in, and was the most affordable lawyer in our area. When it came time for our interviews Nareg prepped us with many questions that an immigration staff member has, and, guided us on how to best answer them in a clear and concise manner. My wife was in another country (China) and he made time to allow for us to meet over the phone so we can accommodate her time zone (12 hours away). I am so thankful we didn't file on our own and try to fill out the forms ourselves. We had some hiccups based upon my wife's past that made our visa's complicated, Nareg guided us through each of them, and gave us advice on how she would explain this to the US consulate while she was interviewed in China. To our luck (his careful guidance and review), she was granted a Fiancé Visa on her first attempt, despite her affiliation to a certain party. When she was in America he instructed us right away how the process for the Green Card application would work, what evidence we needed to collect, save, and compile over the next three years. When it came time to file for her green card renewal 10 years, we were granted her Visa in one shot, no further interview needed, nothing. Nareg took all of our evidence and carefully constructed a very clear picture of our relation. Literally makes a book of our life together that he sends in. Its hard to explain until you see it but it is very impactful and clearly outlines the joining of our life. Needless to say, she was granted permeant residence without any interview needed. As we begin her journey for US Citizenship there is no question in my mind who we are going to use to make sure again that we have a perfect process. TL;DR - Used Nareg from K1 visa to Permanent Residence Green Card and has a wonderful experience, with a reasonable and affordable price.

Diligent, attentive and great person - highly recommended!
My wife (USC) and I hired Nareg for the filing of my adjustment of status application (F-1 to conditional permanent resident). During each step of the process - consultation, collecting marriage evidence, filing, interview prep - Nareg was clear in his explanations and did an amazing job in ensuring our case was approved with no hurdles. In today's climate, it is important to have strong legal representation in immigration matters, and I highly recommend Nareg - not only because of his professionalism and undeniable talent in nagivating the complex UCSIS system, but also because his interpersonal skills are stellar and a reassuring pillar of strength as you navigate the process. A++++

A fantastic attorney! Highly recommended!
We are so happy with our decision to hire Nareg! He is a true professional and a fantastic immigration lawyer. Our case was immediately approved! It quickly became clear that he knows the procedures and best practices for the immigration process. The preparation for our interview was tremendous! While the actual interview was much easier, it was great to have such good preparation. We highly recommend having Nareg join you for the actual interview.

I am so grateful for what he has done for us
I have worked with several different lawyers for our family’s immigration status changes and I want to tell everyone that Nareg Kandilian was the best of best. He helped us to get my adopted daughter a green card. He was very honest upfront and told me he was not fully familiar with my case but he promised me he would research on my case and back to me. Several days later he emailed and explained me what he found from his research. I was very impressed by his honesty so I decided to work with him. Working with him was very pleasant and easy since he always gave me a clear instruction for my questions or concerns. His email response was very quick except the days he had to be in a court all day long and in this case he even informed me that he might not able to get back to me fast enough. He was very professional while we prepared the entire document. As I am not a native English speaker, sometimes I don’t understand things and he was very helpful to explain those things with respect. I strongly recommend Nareg Kandilian for your immigration needs.

Professional, helpful, friendly...surpassed all expectations!
My husband and I wanted to hire an immigration lawyer to help us file a marriage-based permanent residency and change of status application. We'd never hired a lawyer before and had been advised by friends and family that we didn't really need one, but during our consultation my husband and I agreed right away that we wanted Mr. Kandilian to handle our case. His fees are very reasonable for his detailed level of service. He clearly broke down all the steps of the process for us and offered excellent advice regarding document submission and interview preparation. In addition to being very knowledgable and professional, he is extremely friendly and always put us at ease. Ultimately our case was successfully processed in less than 3 months, when we had expected it would take about twice as long. We're very pleased with our experience and would definitely recommend Mr. Kandilian to anyone.
