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 worked with Karin through a plethora of extraordinary immigration events in my life and she handled it all with calm competence. Her deep knowledge of the law is clear in all her communications and she is great at making it simple for the foreign layman to understand. Karin is quick to reply to all requests, never misses a beat, is very patient and reassuring. I cannot recommend her enough.

I met Karin approximately 8 years ago, through her I obtained two O1 visas, an O1 green card and ultimately my citizenship. Few attorneys transmit a feeling of confidence and trustworthiness as Karin did from the first time I met her. I referred several friends of mine to her and the feeling they got was the same as I got. I could not recommend anyone so openly as I do Karin.

I couldn't recommend more highly. Ms. Wolman is extremely well informed about the latest changes, breath-takingly efficient, and refreshingly direct. One has the sure sense that she will tell you like it is, and, at the same time, act in your interest. I have the highest degree of confidence in her advice.

Karin has recently helped me to get my O-1B visa approved. During such a stressful and difficult process, Karin was nothing but wonderful. She was thoroughly knowledgable and incredibly patient in explaining to me how to best present the case. She went above and beyond in helping to prepare the materials and was always quick to reply to any questions. I feel very fortunate to have Karin work my case and cannot recommend her highly enough.

It was such a privilege and a pleasure to work with Karin. I was impressed from the first phone consultation by her knowledge and honesty, and also because she immediately understood my expertise and "got me". I knew we would work well together right then. She first got me through an O-1 application (and then renewal) successfully, and more recently through my permanent residence as an EB1. Her thoroughness to assemble a strong case unique to my expertise, and her deep knowledge of the law was impressive and a bedrock of trust. And very importantly, she understands that you are a person with hopes, fears, and aspirations -- not just a legal case. She was always encouraging while never giving false hope, and on more than one occasion helped me deal with my self-doubts and anxieties. I will forever be grateful for what she did for me, her work, and her humanity.

Karin Wolman was excellent in preparing and filing my work-visa applications. She always responded to my e-mails and was very patient with explaining what had to be done and how. My employers were also very impressed with her work. I would definitely recommend her to employees as well as employers.

I was seeking a lawyer and recently contacted Karin Wolman for an appointment. Screwed up website that shows errors, voicemails not returned, receptionist lies when you call. Oh but do expect some really nasty e-mails. Assumed too many things, yes she does seem knowledgeable but really what use is knowledge that lacks logic? Just one word that would describe perfectly- UNPROFESSIONAL.
