Norka has been my lawyer for the last 2 years
I went to Norka for help with my divorce and immigration case. It was a difficult case since It was my second time sending in papers for to immigration, and I've now gotten remarried in the country. I had a successful divorce, and a little over a year later I have now gotten my green card. I would highly recommend Norka as a lawyer for both divorce cases and immigration cases as I've experience first hand how great she are. She gets things done! Such an excellent lawyer and so caring!

Professional,caring and knowledgeable
On a Sunday! I placed a call to Norka office and got her answering service. I leave a detailed message with a contact number and within minutes she replied. I was extremely stressed, could not rest was not sleeping, was not performing at work and when I spoke to Norka she lifted a load of Burden off of my shoulders. She reassured me of her knowledge of the laws with regard to my immigration issue. During my consultation Norka demonstrated care and as a client that was very important to me.Well let's say I leave her office with a renewed sense of confidence and Trust, she explained how we will work together as a team and I sincerely appreciate her pointing that out. Thanks for being on my Team.
