a great experience
My wife and I hired Ms Ramirez for my wife's immigration case after a recommendation from my wife's friend. She was very professional and very helpful in our case. She was always in constant contact with us and explained the immigration process. She was very helpful and felt like she cared about our situation. I am very thankful for her services and would recommend her to anyone who has an immigration issue.

Diligent, Professional, and heartwarming
Helen Ramirez was truly a Godsend. After decades of only imagining of one day becoming a permanent resident of this wonderful country, in which I only know as my home, Helen was the righteous person to help fulfill that dream. Coming to the USA as a child, undocumented, was more of an uphill battle since day one. Growing up and being raised through the entire American school system was normal at first, until end of high school came about and becoming an adult and partaking of all the benefits (obtaining driving license, applying for college, obtaining a professional job/career) was out of the question. Although tough to face reality, one can only continue to pursue a dream as much as one is determined to, and so I did. I was able to achieve a college degree (by the favor and grace of God) and establish myself as a working individual in society but still not able to achieve proper career employment due to my status. As the years passed I continued to pursue my personal dream, and I met and married the love of my life and began a family. At this time is when we met Helen with high hopes that she may assist us with our situation. Although possibilities seemed slim, Helen made it a point to understand our situation and become more of a friend that cared for the rightful outcome, rather than just a person hired for their services. She guided us through the process with care and knowledgeable advice so that we may do everything properly and lawfully. The end results speaks for itself, we were able to achieve my U.S Residency and accomplish a lifetime goal that was only an imagination at first. My family is truly grateful to the determination, professionalism, encouragement, and moreover friendship of Helen Ramirez. Helen and her staff will be recommended by my family for decades to come.

Helped our impossible dream come true
Our case was incredibly difficult. After three lawyers refused to take the case, Helen was the only one willing to take on the challenge. Two prior attorneys we'd consulted had said that the case was impossible to win. Another lawyer had taken much money without giving us any hope or results. In contrast, Helen was always respectful and always hopeful, even when all the odds seemed against us. In the end, we were able to keep our nine-year-old daughter here with us as Helen was able to secure asylum for her. Without Helen, this dream would have never become a reality.

An Amazing Person An Amazing Laywer An Amazing Woman
I've only met one lawyer before so this might not mean a lot. I have nothing bad to say because Mrs.Ramirez was great. She was friendly, understanding and showed interest. More importantly Mrs. Ramirez got it done (my family is very happy). I can only compare her to the last lawyer my parents got for the family (never met him or her). Who I feel just milked their wallets and wasted our time. Lastly, because of her, I can now look forward to my future.

Attorney review
I am a Los Angeles based resident recently married and I was in need to seek legal assistance to help my husband to legalize his immigration status in the United States. I was kind of overwhelm and dreading the arduous and bureaucratic process, but, Ms. Ramirez was so professional and efficient that made the procedure goes very smoothly. Ms. Ramirez has extensive experience in all types of immigration cases both in the New York area and New Jersey and she always keeps updated with all new information in regards to immigration laws changes. She is also bilingual English-Spanish which made my husband felt very comfortable to be able to communicate with her in his native language. Ms. Ramirez integrity and passion for the work that she does with all types of families made her an exceptional professional. Any concern I raised was immediately addressed. Phone calls were answered in a timely manner. Information I requested about the process was promptly forwarded. I can honestly recommend anyone in need for immigration consult to contact Ms. Ramirez. Nadira V.P. Yo soy residente en la ciudad de Los Angeles y recientemente contraje matrimonio. Yo necesita buscar asistencia legal en el area de imigracion para ayudar a mi esposo a legalizer su estado migratorio en el los Estado Unidos. Yo me sentia con mucho estres y preocupacion por el arduo esfuerzo que se necesitaba para procesar los documentos de legalizacion. Pero, la Sra. Ramirez fue muy profesional y eficiente y hiso que el proceso de imigracion fuera muy sencillo. La Sra.

Ella siempre se mantiene informada de toda informacion en referencia a las leyes de imigracion y cualquier cambio divulgado por el departamento de imigracion. Ella tambien es bilingue en Ingles-Espanol por lo cual mi esposo de sentio muy comodo al poder comunicarse con ella en su lenguaje natal. La integridad y pasion por su trabajo convierte a la Sra.

Partner for Success
Ms. Ramirez Went above and beyond in my case. She was always there to answer questions and walk me through the steps required to bring the case to a fruitful ending even though I know I asked her the same questions numerous times. I had direct access to her at all times and she really made it easy for me as we progressed. Very flexible. Highly recommend.

Mrs. Islam
On April 2011, I hired Helen Ramirez as my legal counsel, she was highly recommended by an acquaintance who had similar situation as mine. Before getting in touch with her I've contacted many lawyers and each had multiple reasons not to take me as a client given the very difficult nature of the case and majority of them suggested that my husband and I conceive immediately to make my immigration case much stronger. I understand the suggestions were in good faith but we were not ready to make that commitment only for the sake of my case. At our first consultation, we were welcomed by this lively, beautiful petite lady. Our first impression was that we have never met a lawyer that welcoming. Helen listened intently to our situation and our concerns. I was expecting to hear the same suggestion of how having a child would make our case stronger and to my surprise she didn't mention anything about it. She advised that although our case is challenging but it is not impossible. She said it will take some time but we will need a lot of patience and have to be honest as we go through the process. Her advocacy meant a lot to us, my husband and I were thrilled by her advice, we wanted to get our situation fixed and did want it to be settled via honesty with an honest lawyer. I was extremely nervous about the whole process, my livelihood depended on it. I will be honest, I was a bit annoying in the beginning, I would text/call/email her numerous times over the same subject but not once did she loose her patience with me. She's was very thorough with our case. Few times I would forget to send her the documents but Helen would always remind me, she was always there. Eventually I learned to relax a bit because I knew she had my back, that's how much I trusted her. Helen is an honest, sincere and a confident lawyer. Through this entire process, I have got to know Helen; she has been a friend, and a confidant to me, always there in the toughest time of my life. She became my biggest strength. The fee for her services does not justify what she has done for me. Not only she's a knowledgeable lawyer but she's a beautiful human being and that makes her very special and different from others. I owe my freedom to her! I cannot THANK Helen enough for all she has done for us and I am thankful that we found her and she will always be a very special part of our lives.
