We engaged Karin to help us with an L1B visa for an employee joining us from Oz. Karin was great in laying out exactly what we needed, highlighting the issues she knew from her experience would cause delays, and providing answers whenever we needed.
I'd definitely recommend Karin for any small business looking to accomplish the same goal.

Ms. Wolman is the best immigration lawyer I know in NYC.
My O-1 case is very complicated due to an inappropriate action that I and my sponsor took against USCIS. The visa got denied at the embassy in Japan but Ms. Wolman really dedicated herself and worked very hard to overturn the decision.
The final judgement has not been made yet but either I get it or not I can definitely recommend one Ms. Wolman for someone who is looking for a really good immigration lawyer.

Karin Wolman is the best Immigration Lawyer in NYC, according to my experience.
She is not only extremely professional and attentive, but also knows exactly how to help you, whatever your case. Before meeting Karin, I visited countless firms and immigration lawyers, and they all rejected to represent me, arguing that my case was "too complicated," "impossible to achieve", or because they lacked immigration experience or knowledge on cases like mine. I visited countless lawyers and paid many consultations only to be told that they couldn't help me.
Karin took my case and helped me recover my American citizenship after having relinquished! - something that is extremely hard to achieve. Since my first consultation with her, she was extremely honest, and instead of rejecting me like all other lawyers or giving me false hopes, she clearly stated that it would be difficult, yet not impossible, and said it was worth trying. She was very specific and clear about the procedure and all the possible outcomes, and explained with exhaustive detail every possible scenario.
She immediately inspired me great trust, and in the end she won my case!, She accomplished to recover my citizenship, even after all the lawyers and all the experts I'd consulted before had told me that I practically didn't stand a chance.
I also value and appreciate her being attentive and responsive in every way possible, and that she was always helpful, available, and promptly responded to all of my inquiries.
I highly recommend her services and will definitely retain her as my immigration lawyer in the future.

I have gotten to know Karin over the last few years and have come to appreciate her both for her stunning intellect and her honest concern for her clients. I am grateful always to be able to brainstorm with her and marvel at her special gifts. I heartily endorse Karin Wolman.

I have had the privilege of serving with Karin on several committees and on continuing legal education panels, and I have consistently been impressed with the breadth of Karin’s knowledge and her devotion to immigration practice. I have found her comments and advice in her editorial role invaluable, and admire Karin a great deal for her wisdom and integrity.
