I cannot say enough wonderful things about Cheryl and her team. My husband lived in NYC undocumented for 5 years. We finally decided to do the process of adjusting his status which included filing a stateside waiver so that he could stay with us until his appointment with the consulate. Michelle drafted the most detailed hardship waiver, which by far exceeded my expectations and was worth every penny. In the middle of the process, my husband got arrested and taken by the police for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Cheryl called me herself at 8pm and assured me everything would be fine. She stood by us as this arrest delayed our process by 6 months. Finally, when my husband's record was clear, we did the final process of appearing for the interview in my husband's home country. Cheryl prepared us for what they would ask and how to answer. We went prepared, and had we not brought pictures (Cheryl's recommendation) we may not have won the immigration officer over. I cried when he said, "You guys are too cute, you need to go home together."
Just when I thought we were in the clear, my husband's visa to come back home was delayed for unknown reasons. I was home with 2 kids by myself in a position that I never imagined. We had been approved and suddenly our case went into "administrative processing" which some people are in for at least 6 months, some years. Cheryl didn't abandon us. Her office called the consulate twice a day until the issue was resolved. I can't say enough about Cheryl and her staff. They are incredible. When you are in a scary situation like immigration and possibly facing removal of your loved one, she is the one you want on your side. I am so glad we used her office to help.
Now my husband is a legal permanent resident and our family can progress as we have always dreamed. We could not have done it without Cheryl and her team.

When I met Cheryl for the first time, I was very depressed because my previous lawyer messed things up quite badly for my family and got us rejected. The most depressing thing was that my sister turned 21 after being rejected so we all thought that she couldn't get green card with the family (other lawyers have told us this as well). But Cheryl helped all of my family to get green card and saved us a lot of trouble. In my opinion, Cheryl has two qualities that makes her an outstanding lawyer.
First, Cheryl is reliable and competent. When my family explained our situation to Cheryl, she did not merely rely on her memory; she looked back into her books and called her peers to ask for suggestions and to confirm her ideas. My previous lawyer relied on his memory and made a mistake, which ultimately got us into the trouble. But Cheryl's approach reduces margin of error and makes her a very reliable lawyer. She is also very knowledgeable in her field; she was able to find a way to include my sister, who was over 21 at the time, in our case of getting green cards. Her competence clearly stands out from others when you look at all the cases she was able to successfully help.
Secondly, Cheryl's compassion and care for her clients make her an extraordinary lawyer. When we were consulting her for the first time, my mom cried in front of her in distress. Cheryl comforted her and very clearly explained the approach she would use for my family. When I anxiously emailed her a question that my family had at 11:30 pm, she responded promptly at 5 am in the morning next day. She sees us more than just as clients; she sees us as people who have been victimized in many aspects of life because of our status, and she does what she can to help us stand on fair grounds by having the legal status in the U.S.
I am very thankful that my family ended up with Cheryl and not just any other lawyer. She is an outstanding lawyer who makes this review not an exaggeration but an accurate description.

Finding the Office of Cheryl David came on a referral for an associate. I needed legal expertise for a situation that required an honest and truthful response with regard to a situation with an employee who had been detained. Cheryl and Lindsey met with myself and a colleague to discuss the detention dilemma. From the onset, these 2 lawyers made us feel at ease, comfortable and allowed for honest and open dialog, with no false hope or pretense. Cheryl and Lindsey shared their thoughts about our situation, added their considerable experience and came up with a plan that left us with hope and optimism. Be mindful, that our situation, based on all legal documentation (the law), would not allow for the release of our colleague for at least 6 months. Cheryl and Lindsey had an answer for that process as well. Upon planning to review the detention statue, challenge the reason for detaining our colleague, and exploring an immediate termination, Cheryl and Lindsey and the Office of Cheryl David (Yanyll and Michelle) hammered out a plan and filed the motions in an extremely effective manner, that was precise with the time element in mind. At the Master Court date, Lindsey was OUTSTANDING! She presented the case, was prepared with the motions and while the result we wanted were not at hand that day, Lindsey secured a unseen victory, not often found at a Master Court date EVER in immigration court. This review speaks to the excellent work of the entire office, as I felt comfortable with these folks as I would my family in a crisis. Cheryl and her staff (Lindsey, Michelle, Yanyll) secured the freedom our colleague within 31 days of the day of detention date!!! 31 DAYS! SERIOUSLY; from an estimated 6 months from every other attorney I consulted, to release in 31 DAYS. (lawyers are a dime a dozen, but these ladies make you feel like family)

I just want to let any future client of Cheryl David that you will get one of the best lawyers in the country. Her amazing team, Lindsey, Michelle and Mayreni were there for us trough the 2,5 years that our case took. I just finally got my 10yr permanent resident green card and I can't be more satisfied. They were able to turn down my removal proceedings and get me a second chance to update my status. Again, I'm very thankful for all their help and professionalism.

They helped me navigate the tricky parts, eased my mind about everything I was worried about, and prepared us for the interview process. They are knowledgeable, understanding, prompt, and friendly. They are life-savers!! Would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone with complicated or straight-forward immigration applications.

I had a very complex immigration matter and while online came upon miss David's firm.She was very professional, as was her associate miss Lindsey Gauzza who was assigned to assist me, after a few times in immigration court I was extremely happy that Cheryl and Lindsay resolved my deportation issue.
I feel that I have a new life now and am extremely grateful for the time and effort they put towards my case. ..You guys are the best, thanks so much.

The law office of Cheryl David was more than just a "lawyer" Cheryl & Michelle David went above & beyond to improve our chances for Approval. Honestly our case wasn't very strong, it didn't seem to be coming together. We went to a few different lawyers who took our money & just saw us as a case # more than people. Cheryl and Michelle genuinely cared & did everything possible to keep us informed, they communicated with us constantly (Almost daily for over a year), coming up with small bits of important information that over time framed a stronger case. We got an approval of our I-601 Waiver & was issued a Visa. Everything went smoothly, they kept our mind at ease throughout the entire process. I've still gotten advice & information from them even after our case was over. I highly recommend them...!!!
