Thank you Mr. Weinman
I met Mr. Weinman 4 years ago regarding a case for change of status. He is absolutely amazing. He is straightforward and this will save you time and efforts. Many lawyers will try to twist the truth to get your case and money, not him. He is also kind and supportive and ALWAYS available to his clients even when his health wasn’t good. Now let’s get to the facts: I have 2 successful cases with Mr. Weinman and another one successful case for a friend who actually recommended him.

He's the only lawyer I met who was able to answer my questions. The process was very smooth and my husband moved to the US within the projected time frame. We are both very pleased with his services.

God Bless Lawyer Bruce
He saved my life. Two years ago I was illegal. I am embarrass to say but its true. When I went to Weinman I lost all hope. Many lawyers tell me there is nothing I can do, and a few want more than $10,000 to help my case. But then I go to Lawyer Bruce and he tell me he can help me for very fare price. After I talk to my wife we decide to give try to Lawyer Bruce. Thankful we did, because it was best decision of my life. I now have permanent card with my wife. God Bless Weinman. Many thanks.

Expert on Immigration Law
Mr. Weinman is a true expert in his field. When I came to him I thought my case was hopeless. Now, my whole family has papers. Mr. Weinman explained all of our options to us, and advised what he thought was best. We were nervous at first but decided to trust him, and we are so thankful that we did. I do not want to give too much personal detail, but everything worked out. I had been to see other lawyers who would not spend the time with me to find the right way to help my family. I recommend Mr. Weinman to anyone with immigration problems who is looking for an outstanding attorney.

Best Immigration Lawyer for O1 Visa
It was middle of June, I made an appointment to meet him about O1 visa. I already failed the lottery for H1 on April 1st even though I have a sponsor. I was really shock. I explained to him about my situation.. Honestly, I met or spoke with 5 Korean lawyers to apply O1 visa, and they said that my case was really bad. No award, recent graduated student, a sponsor in very small company.. etc. All lawyers said that you were not able to received the O1 visa because your experiences in Korea and US were not extraordinary. However, Mr. Weinman told me there is some possibilities if I gave him whatever he asked for, and he asked me to get a lot of recommendations from clients or employers. At the first time he mentioned, I could not believe him. Actually, I doubt him... Anyway, I paid some portion of fee and start to gather all the information that he wanted to see. I was lucky that I can get a recommendations really soon, and I sent him whatever I received the letter. But, he was really different lawyer than others that I met before. He did not ask me what was missing OR mistake.. I just sent information, and kept waiting his notice. After 7 weeks (7 days before my OPT END), he suddenly asked me when is your OPT end. Oh gosh.... I was panic... I thought he should know all things about me because he was my lawyer... I told him my information, and he started to say! 'let's apply O1 visa before your OPT end'. AND!!! HE REALLY FINISH ALL DOCUMENTS BEFORE OPT END AND APPLY MY APPLICATION 2 DAYS BEFORE MY OPT END. How awesome! After that, I was waiting the notice from USCIS, and finally I got a approval!!!! I appreciated his effort and consideration. Now I know how he is really great lawyer!! I definitely recommend to apply O1 visa with him if whoever has any issue.! You should speak with him, talk with him and get a approval :)

Best Immigration Lawyer
Outstanding professionalism!!! Organized and on point!! They put me and my family first. They care about you and your situation. As soon as I explained my situation Mr. Bruce had different options which was very helpful to me. Recommending him to anyone that needs to be told the truth he doesn't beat around the bush. Remember every situation is different. He not taking your money if he cant help you. His credentials speak for themselves. Highly recommendable.

Had a wonderful experience at the Law Offices of J Bruce Weinman.
Mr. Weinman is very knowledgable about both the E-2 and EB-5 process, and successfully helped me and my family to live here. We couldn't be more grateful.

This is the great lawyer in New York
I am eternally grateful to Mr. Weinman!!! He helped my whole family get together. He was a true blessing for us through the whole extensive immigration process. He is extremely knowledgeable, unbelievably patient and tactful with people and he has an amazing personality. Mr. Weinman deserves not all the 6 rating stars but 7 and I will be very specific with you, as I have been in the position of a person who reads tons of reviews looking for a good lawyer. Lets start with the fact that before hiring Mr. Weinman I personally met with about 15 lawyers, some of them even recommended by friends. The problem was that I wasn't happy with any of them. I worked for 20 years as a Human resource specialist and I have the training to recognize the people that can get the job done. Frankly spoken, some of the lawyers I met at that time were very convincing but I was also very well-prepared for my appointments with them and at the end they didn't seem to me either very competent or honest enough or something else was missing. Then, I was browsing online, reading different reviews and I found Mr. Weinman. There were several nice reviews and I decided to try with an initial appointment. Yet when you open the door you see that his office is organized in a manner that is only possible for someone confident, knowledgeable and honest. The next pleasant surprise was that he doesn't make you wait (many lawyer do that very intentionally)and he doesnt need to, as he gains immediately the clients respect with his positive and honest approach and his extensive knowledge. We discussed L1 visa, H1B visa, E1 and E2 and I decided to hire him right on the spot. 18 months later, I am so happy with my decision because he helped my mother, then my father and then my best friend. 3 out of 3 absolutely successful cases. Two of them I know were extremely difficult. Thank you, Mr. Weinman, you are a true blessing for me and my family! And for those of you who took the time to read my review, I wish you just a little good luck because I know now that you will be in the hands of a great lawyer.

Status adjustment
I unfortunately would not recommend Mr. Weinman. I found he and his staff unprofessional and unresponsive. We hired Mr. Weinman for a pretty simple status readjustment and feel that his counsel added very little to the process. Mr. Weinman did not prepare us adequately for our interview, and, subsequently we found that many questions that were asked we were not ready for. Additionally, he did not accompany us to the interview (as was promised in our original agreement) and instead sent one of his associates who had little understanding of our case.
