  • Ajay Kumar Arora

    I endorse Eve Guillergan. I worked under her supervision at a well-known immigration law firm from 1993 to 1995 and I learned a great deal from Eve. She was well-respected at the firm and clients asked for her by name and recommended her name when another immigration issue arose or if they referred a family member or friend. I have kept in touch with Eve over the years and exchanged advice on a few immigration matter and have come away impressed with her insight and dedication.
