I am an immigrant myself. I know what you are feeling. 

I have worked and studied hard. As a result of these efforts, I became an Immigration Officer and remained thus for 16+ years. During my tenor as an Immigration Officer, I saw how many of my fellow potential immigrants were being taken advantage of by unscrupulous persons. These observations helped me decide to become an Immigration Attorney; my hard earned skills were needed on this side of the fence. I had achieved MY Immigration dream; and for the last 15+ years I have devoted my life to helping others achieve their Immigration dream. I know and I believe that the achievement of legal immigration status will leave one free to ultimately move onto bigger and better aspirations and achievements --for all of us, our families, and especially for our children.

Of-Counsel
Over the years, I have come to know Mrs. Suri as extremely knowledgeable with the law, particularly with regard to Immigration issues. Our law firm often consults with Ms. Suri, as of counsel, on complex immigration matters. We have always found her counsel candid, practical, and reliable. Ade Omojola, Esq.

Best immigration attorney in PA!
Barbara Ivarine Suri is an excellent immigration attorney. She has a lot of experience and compassion. She will explain the whole immigration process to you very patiently before she starts working on your case. She will return your calls right away when you need to talk to her. I never felt rushed when talking to her. Overall I think she is an excellent attorney and an amazing human being.
