Mr York and his team assisted me in my case regarding my naturalization after denial of my green card renewal. My case was very complicated and Mr York and his team clearly and thoroughly explained all the scenarios possible. They were always available at any time and if I had any questions I could expect an answer promptly. I have a total trust in him and his team to do the work efficiently and in a timely manner. I highly recommend their services for any immigration purposes.

Harlan York helped me to understand complex law in simple language, while it does not make the law simple, for it is not. I only need to know how the law applies to my personal case. Many lawyers try to confuse you to make you dependent upon them. Harlan York does not do that. He is not confused he is confident, and he has the intelligence to communicate to the common man. He is a good listener and grasps the legal as well as the personal feelings of the client. My wife was denied a visa after leaving the country with an approved 601 a waiver. I am fighting to get her back. We were surprised by a State Department claim of fraud, wrapped around a fuzzy legal principle. We felt so helpless. I searched and contacted lawyers from Beijing to NJ, about seven or eight. Harlan York is the best I have met so far in three years working for the immigrant visa, and green card. He is responsive, reassuring and imaginative in his solutions and advice. I just like the guy, that's it.

Mr Harlan is a very knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney. I had a serious criminal case which could result in immigration issues. Mr Harlan handled our case delicately and assured us best possible results. He responds to queries and emails within hrs. He and his firm is very dedicated towards their clients. I highly recommend him to anyone having immigration issues.

We worked with Harlan and his team over a nearly year-long process for my husband's green card. The entire team was incredible. They met with us as many times as we needed to help us understand the immigration process and what we could expect, and were always a phone call or email away when we had a question (and trust me, we had many). We had a lot of trepidation coming into the process, but Harlan's team made it completely seamless -- it was such a joy and a luxury to be able to focus on other things, like building our life together, while the team handled all of the legal issues. We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone with immigration (especially green card) needs.

I've dealt with a few immigration attorney's regarding my case, but no one was able to resolve my immigration matter and just kept me hanging. It wasn't until I came to Harlan York's firm that I actually had hope of a positive outcome. To cut a long story short - I've waited and wasted almost 15+ years for my immigration case to end with a positive outcome, which Harlan's team (Lauren and Riki) resolved in 2 1/2 years. Only reason it even took that long was because the court postponed dates; otherwise I'm sure it would've taken much lesser time. Not only did my case get approved, but I'll be receiving my green card within 3 months. Anyone and everyone reading this - PLEASE DO NOT waste your time and money with other attorney's, instead contact Harlan York's Firm ASAP!!
Wish I could give them more than 5 stars!!

Mr. Harlan York is the best immigration attorney I have spoken to. Why? His legal advice and counseling come second. First, I felt treated as a person not a client, with empathy and attention. Second, I was given a chance to speak and explain my situation and never felt at pressure of spending his time and/or uncomfortable while chatting with him.
After listening, Mr. York gave me true, precise, specific, and professional advice about my situation. He is very legally alphabetic person.
It was not about charging fees, as many other legal aid secretaries ask for before you can even hear the attorney’s voice. With Mr. York, as it has always been, it is about listening and identifying with your case, it is about him wanting to help you, it is about loving what he does, not from the money side, but getting involved to resolve your case.
He will not close the door to your face because you cannot pay for a consultation fee. That happened with me. He answered my call personally again today, after almost two years of non-communication. And for free.
Finally, what I appreciate the most is his honesty. He is brutally honest, something we see less and less nowadays, especially in the “legal” world. He will listen to you, and if there is not much to be done in one’s case (because of the law) he will tell you straight forward. I wonder where he finds his time to assist so many people like me.
Thank you for your time, honesty, professionalism and the free valuable advice Mr. York.
Best wishes for you, to be able to help those in need.
Saludos from Mexico City Sir.

From the very first consolation with Mr. York to the special day we received our letter that we were approved for a green card, this entire firm made us feel comfortable and that we were in good hands. They responded to phone calls and questions very quickly and efficiently. They were always courteous and polite and made us fell we were a special client. If you want to feel at ease about the whole process. Any time we were uncomfortable, we would email them with our situation and immediately they made us feel better. I could thank them enough for all there help and hard work. A 5 STAR FIRM

I had the best experience with Harlan York & Associates!
Just when my husband and I thought it was impossible for me to immigrate to the states without having to miss each other for months, I contacted Mr.York, and he immediately made me feel better about our case. My husband is military and he's stationed in North Carolina. Due to his last marriage we can't afford much because he has to pay a lot of child support each month so money is tight. When we explained the situation to Mr. York, he immediately offered to work with us pro bono!!! An absolute gift from heaven as we had given up hope!! My husband and I got married November 10th 2014 and as I'm writing this review its June 29th 2015 and I got approved for my green card last week!! We are so relieved! It wouldn't have even taken this long if it weren't for me having issues gathering the paperwork together! Mr. York and Miss Lauren Anselowitz were there for the whole process, immediately responded to my emails when I had questions, Lauren even called me a couple of days before the interview to give me some advice and tips! She was the one that helped out the most and we could not be happier!! If it weren't for this firm I would've been back in Belgium, separated from my lovely husband!
I truly and highly recommend them and my heart goes out to them! We are now living together and getting ready to start a family, without Harlan York & associates we wouldn't have been able to do this! Thank you!!

We engaged Harlan York and Associates after consulting with several other law firms, searching various web based sources, and speaking with attorneys who practice immigration law. We had previously had our case handled by another firm which didn’t perform anything efficiently except their process for sending us bills for services. In meeting with Mr. York and his team, he was very up front in helping us understand how his team would handle our case, the process we would have to follow, and how the case would most likely unfold. He explained how his firm would handle the case, the risks, potential outcomes (good and bad), and the fee’s associated with the case. There were no false promises associated with his explanations, just a clear and easily understood portrayal of what his firm would be doing and the costs associated with this. As our case was an application for lawful status under the VAWA provision, and we were as risk for deportation, there were many complications and nuances that had to be managed through. Mr. York assigned our case to Maggie Dunsmuir, who not only has phenomenal expertise and knowledge in VAWA, but is thorough, thoughtful, empathetic, patient, and was always available to us during the 12 months that we worked with her. Although the VAWA requirements are complex and not entirely black and white, she took the time to thoroughly understand our situation and, over the course of many months, developed our case and ultimately the VAWA application in a manner that provided the most compelling argument possible that we were eligible for VAWA status based on the standards.
We had many multi-hour meetings with her at her office and we never felt rushed. She was bought into our case 100%, and many times I felt like she wanted to achieve a successful outcome for us as much as we did for ourselves. We exchanged many emails and phone calls over this time. She was always there for us and her follow up was timely, thorough, and thoughtful. In May of 2015 she called us with the news we had been waiting for – the VAWA application was approved !! We were ecstatic and had a hard time processing this great piece of information. Now we are working with her to apply for lawful permanent resident status and I’m confident the experience will be another positive one. This is a real success story made possible by Harlan York and Associates and Maggie. We can’t thank the firm enough for making this possible. I recommend them without reservation.
