Douglas helped me second time with H1B visa. My case was not ordinary but Douglas found the way to manage it. I strongly recommend him! He has a very good expertise in everything related to the H1B and immigration to USA.

I am an attorney myself but I could not have successfully navigated getting a green card through marriage without Doug's help. Looking up the pertinent law and regulations is one thing -- understanding what works and does not with immigration officers is another and can come only with years of experience.
I thought I could do the green card application on my own as I'm also in the legal profession but when my wife and I failed our first green card interview and had to do the dreaded Stokes interview we knew we needed help. With Doug's great understanding of the inherent strengths and weaknesses of our application my wife and I passed our interview with ease.
2 years later with Doug's help I was able to remove the conditional status from my permanent residence, and now I look forward to working with him again when I apply for US citizenship.

I endorse Doug for his detail oriented approach, and breadth of knowledge in immigration law. Doug's experience and determination always result in the best advocacy on behalf of his clients. I have referred him to several clients throughout the years and Ive always heard only the best feedback.
