The firm I worked for hired her to do my Permanent Labor Certification process as part of my Green Card application process. A prevailing wage determination was done with the Dept of Labor and determined that for the job, the expected annual salary was around $75000. The salary structure with my company at the time was $70000 as base salary plus monthly and year end bonus and ends up being more than $75000 annually. When she prepared and submitted my application, she enters only the base salary of $70000 which is less than the $75000. The Department of Labor denied my Permanent Labor Certification on that grounds.
A competent lawyer should have brought this information to the attention of my employer or me. Instead she completely messes my application. If she had brought it to the attention of my employer, my employer would have been happy to re-do my pay structure and ensure that I am well within the requirements of the prevalent wage determination.
In addition, in my interactions with other her with regards to my H1B visa applications, I have found that she is one of those lawyers who can only handle the most common situations in an immigration process. She doesn't have the tenacity to handle complex immigration processes and know how to sidestep any landmines that might come along during an immigration processes.
I know she handles other areas of law besides immigration. I cannot speak on whether she is competent in other areas. But definitely do NOT hire her as your immigration attorney.
