  • Brian Todd Goldenfarb

    Having had mutual clients with Asma, I can certainly say that she is an excellent attorney. She is very well respected in the legal community and is very knowledgeable when it comes to immigration law. If any of my clients have immigration concerns, I highly recommend that they speak with Asma.
