I'm rating Mr. Lasar on his experience with immigration law, for which I would not recommend him. I would have been better off without a lawyer at all. If you want to be given incorrect information, or you are unable to read the USCIS instructions and Google for answers yourself (and have a month to kill because of the turnaround time), then by all means hire Mr. Lasar. But if you want someone who actually knows what they're doing and will make the process easier, look anywhere else.
I expected Mr. Lasar to make the process of applying for a simple adjustment of status easier by completing the forms and dealing with the USCIS on our behalf. Instead, we got the most bare bones service imaginable.
Before he even began looking at our case, we had to wait two weeks for him to get through his queue of other clients. During that time of waiting for him to help, all he did was email me a list of links to the USCIS application forms (all of which I had already found before speaking with him). While waiting for his help, I asked him a few simple questions about the process that I would expect any immigration lawyer to know. Not only did he take at least 24 hours to respond to most questions, but he also provided INCORRECT information in a few important cases.
By the time he finally got around to looking at our application documents (which I had to prepare myself), he gave a few minor suggestions that were incompatible with the electronic application forms from the USCIS, which made it seem as if he's never actually filled one out before.
Near the end of the process when it was time to mail in the application, all Mr. Lasar did was give a suggestion on how to organize the application. He didn't give any advice on which evidence to include (although he told us not to include pictures, which I think would have helped since we ended up getting an RFE). When I asked one last basic question, he said he would get back to me while he researched the answer. About an hour later, he sent me a link to an immigration help website, which I had already found while performing my own Google search.
Making matters worse, once the process was done, Mr. Lasar shared links to all of my completed application forms with another client. If I had to guess, it's because he saw that my list of forms was more complete than his own, and he just decided to copy and paste from an email I sent him. I'm still debating whether I should sue for malpractice.
