Immigration Issue
All lawyers are not the same. Nicole and her firm are exceptional. Last year, after my citizenship interview. I got a heart wrenching letter from USCIS/Immigration. This could have led to cancellation of my green card and even a deportation. I was now in search of a lawyer, spoke to over five lawyers most of them did not know how to approach it or what to do. Nicole was the only lawyer, bold and ready to handle the case. She showed me compassion, had empathy and did a thorough job on my case. I can't thank her enough; God used her for me. Her charges are decent, her firm can work out payment plan that could fit you and you wouldn't feel stressed, unlike so many immigration lawyers that are just after your money. Her assistant, Daniella was very professional, polite and knew exactly what to do. If anyone with immigration issue needs a real lawyer. Please reach out to Nicole and her firm. I am so grateful to God for directing my part. I am now an American citizen.

Path to Citizenship made easy!
I couldn't be any happier to find Nicole to help me with my path to Citizenship! After going to three attorneys before her and no one seemed to know what to do with my complicated case, Nicole handled it like a champion! She helped me throughout the process every step of the way and with professionalism and expertise, I am now a proud US citizen because of her. Highly recommended for any immigration case you might have, she is super nice, and always available for your questions.

I strongly recommend her :))
Nicole is really an exceptional attorney. She’s professional, experienced, caring, and responsive. I’ve been working with her for years now, she went beyond and above in my case, she was always (always) there for me even if it was just for empathizing (not really her duty). We even had some disputes (mostly with her firm) but she reacted very adequately and amazingly well. All along the way, I had a great accomplished & supportive lawyer with me. She’s one of the best without a doubt although she's affordable.

Amazingly knowledgeable - best I have met
Nicole Hemrick is not only a brilliant individual but also empathetic and kind. She responded to my email inquiry within an hour, and set up an appointment within a day. Not only did she diligently review the information that I provided, she offered me many practical suggestions and solutions, which I am exceedingly grateful for. As someone that has had experienced, flighty immigration attorneys in the past, I can attest that Nicole had my back, and knows this area of immigration law very well. She is someone that I would count on to be in my corner, and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Perfect example of an inspirational and honest attorney.
Nicole represented my husband immigration case while she was at Spar and Bernstein, she worked very hard and because of her knowledge and experience she was able to help my husband get his residency. We are very grateful for her help in keeping my family together. We wished her all the best in all her endeavour.
Response from Nicole Hemrick August 31, 2019
Hi Nicole and Christopher! It was great working with you! I always remember you guys. It was such a coincidence that you gave the same names as me and my husband and we had your hearing on my birthday. I wish your family all the best!

Best Immigration Lawyer I ever see
I reach out Nicole 2 months ago for my friend removing processing case. I quickly realized at my first meeting with her that she was professional. The master hearing day before the judge Nicole handle my friend case in a constant manner which allows us to hope for a positive outcome. I went back to her office for my personal case and she explained me the path to explore for resolution . In addition I have noted that Nicole legal fees are affordable and she is ready to offer you a payment plan that does not hurt your budget compared to most Immigration Lawyer in NYC. I highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking for an honest , consistent and professional lawyer . Thank you Nicole! You're best!!!!!!

immigration case
I would highly recommend Nicole, - I reached out to her in a short time period before my court date, - she was very responsive and was able to meet me right away, - she attentively listened to the details of my case and provided all the possible solutions that would work for me best. When my court date got rescheduled (due to gov shutdown), she came up with alternative solutions that other lawyers did not even consider.. At the end I was able to get the case resolution that I was hoping for, all thanks to Nicole

Without exception, Ms. Abruzzo has shown complete competence, kindness, comprehension, timeliness, and diligence in every detail. In each case she has handled for us over the course of 5 years, she has been successful, often going beyond the call of duty.

My Experience with Nicole as my Lawyer
As we all know how immigration issues are challenging and frustrating at times, it is always best to have a good lawyer by your side. The day I walked in this lawyer's office, that's the day my life began to change for the better, I had to file a Provision for Unlawful Present Waiver, which is very difficult to get an approval, Nicole took my case and informs me step by step on how we will approach the matter, she was very professional and determined, she always say Collin, don't worry we're looking good, and this was the confidence I needed at the time, she encouraged me to continue moving forward and I felt very comfortable with my life in her hands, I've been in situation where I needed a lawyer before and none could even compare with Nicole, she went above and beyond in every single way. I got an approval my I-601A and had to travel abroad for my interview, which was a success. At this point in my life I call her family, because that's how she made me feel. So for all you folks with immigration and other legal issues, you need to find Nicole Hemrick, she knows how to get the job done. May the Good Lord continue to guide her steps. Thanks

The best lawyer ever!
Hi, I really wanted to set down and write my experience with Miss Nicole. A acquaintance of mine recommender Miss Nicole to me and I am very thankful to her for that. I understand when you deal with someone about certain issues is their job to do it, but this wonderful lawyer is being more than that while helping me to extend my tourists visa. Dealing with immigration issues it could be headache. It was for me. At one point I was overwhelmed but there was nothing I can do except waiting. Miss Nicole knew I was stressed out and once she wrote to me an email where she wanted to let me know not to worry. With another words, she wanted to console me. She truly knows her job and what she is doing. Every time I talked to her, the way how she explains, talks, gives me hope in things I deal with (the immigration ones). She is always kind. I never met her in person. I only know her via the phone, but her knowledge, kindness, moral support, made me see and understand that I am dealing with a great person, and over all, I trust her in what she was doing for me. I am glad that there are still people like her out there, who go beyond their job and offer great service. Miss Nicole is a pleasant person to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone who need help with immigration.

very intelligent, caring, loving, attentive, understanding, trustworthy and reliable lawyer
My number one lawyer Nicole Hemrick my case started back in 2003 I was living in Maryland when my case started I had no knowledge about immigration rules and regulation and because of that my first lawyer robbed me of over $13,000. I was depress and wanted to give up then my sister mother recommend me to the law office of Spar and Bernstein where I met Nicole I did my consultation with Mr Bernstein himself then my case was turn over to Nicole, Nicole is a God send she's an angel and had fought the case until we was victorious my case was a waiver case because I came to America illegal and that make the case very difficult I never really understand the depths of my case until I met Nicole she was very informative and very understanding during the years fighting my case I suffered from anxiety and become very depressed and Nicole cure that sickness. Nicole you are very intelligent, caring, loving, attentive, understanding, trustworthy and reliable lawyer thank you so much(lawyer like Nicole are very hard to fine) Nicole you had fought and because you had fought I can believe in myself again, I am no longer illegal, my daughter can enjoy her country(because of my immigration case I had to send my eight months old daughter then to live in Jamaica with my mother) because you had fought my mother no longer have night mares of me coming back to Jamaica Nicole thank you and I prayed every day that you may feel the joy that you have make me feel every day since you have won my case words can't express how much I adore and appreciate you, you are well loved may God continue to shine his blessing on you and your family that you can continue to do the great job you were put on the earth to do I always tell you, you do your BEST and God will do the REST thanks you for the bottom of my heart..Love Tamara

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I was introduced to Spar & Bernstein from a friend of mine who had a great experience with the firm. I wasn't extremely confident that the law firm could've help because my case was extremely complicated; I entered the country in someone else's name and since had been a law-abiding resident - taking care of my family and paying taxes. Thus, I was petitioning to become a permanent resident, in spite of my illegal entry 15 years ago. In 2012, I went to the office with my case and Mr Bernstein told me that he can help me. He mentioned that it was a difficult case, but he took it on in-spite of that. After some time, he introduced me to Mrs Nicole Hemrick, who would be my lawyer. She was eager to work with me and always positive. As you can imagine, the case involved a lot of paperwork and Mrs. Hemrick was always on top of it - making it clear what I needed and when, to ensure we do not miss key dates. After a lot of hard work (and money and prayer!), I was able to receive my working permit and social security card. Then, there was a major snag in my case when Mrs. Hemrick filed for my permanent residency status... It was declined due to insufficient evidence of how I entered the country. Mrs. Hemrick reassured me that she would do all that she can to help. I worked tirelessly to get the evidence that was needed and she used that information to file an appeal. Luckily, the case was reopened and after another official interview, I was granted my green-card and permanent residency! I would recommend anyone to Spar & Bernstein, as they are a very good law firm. As for Mrs Nicole Hemrick, she is a fantastic lawyer who will fight for you until there is success. I am forever thankful of her work and dedication to my case. Thank you, Nicole!
