I highly recommend Feiner & Lavy P.C., Attorneys at Law. When I arrived at Yaniv's office I was in one of the worst moments of my life. facing deportation. without hope and with a lot of anguish and sadness.Many lawyers told me there was no hope for my case. that my case was very difficult to win and that I was going to be deported, there was nothing to do for me .When I met Yaniv, he explained to me the process and my options .He told me that he would try his best to help me and stop my deportation. First he opened a motion with the judge, he applied for a work permit wich was approved and then. We went to court and my case finally was approved by the judge and I will receive my green card. Thanks to Yaniv. Danijela and George who worked hard on my case with a lot of dedication and effort. I am very grateful to the entire team for all the wonderful work they did for me. I always going to be grateful with this amazing team I highly recommend Feiner & Lavy P.C., Attorneys at Law Thank you so much !!!

Thank You Soo Much Yaniv
I just wanted to say how grateful and thankful I am to have found your service. I had lost all hope after the multiple lawyers that I contacted but u made me feel hopeful again. And because of your amazing service I was able to obtain my green card and now only 6 years later I am an American citizen. Words can never truly express how truly thankful I am to you. It was genuinely a pleasure working with you to accomplish my dream.

Great Immigration attorney
Yaniv is an absolutely fantastic immigration lawyer. Last year I came to Yaniv without a visa to work in the USA. He immediately told me about the E3 visa program Australia had with the US, and that I fit into those guidelines. Within two months I had a working visa in the US. I must say it was a very seamless process and something that I am very grateful for Yaniv for have gotten for me. Even now I call Yaniv and ask him questions related to the Visa - he is helpful and available. I highly recommend Yaniv and his firm to other people seeking to live and work in the US.

The BEST !
my journey was very tough and long. I was in process in front of uscis for 3 long yeas. I lost hope several times. I had 2 previous attorneys that get me no where!!!! lots of promises and money spent with absolutely no results. when I first got the recommendation from my co worker to contact Yaniv Lavy I was very skeptical. the price seemed to be high, but he gave me back the faith. throughout the journey Greg pearl responded to EVERY single email or phone call and made me super informed along the way. after less than a year I got my GREEN CARD. I think that they are miracle doing in that office and I will always be very greatful for them if you have a case don't hesitate to contact them it worth every single penny OMRI

Highly Recommended
I engaged Feiner & Lavy after having had a bad experience with a less competent immigration attorney. Yaniv inspired my confidence when he picked up on several weak spots in my case that I had been unaware of but that made perfect sense once he told me about them. Greg then prepared a much stronger case that earned me a 5 year visa when only 2 years are usually granted. It was such a pleasure to work with people who know what they are doing, provide an excellent service, and care about the outcome.

You are both very knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable having both of you work on my case every step of the way. Your office was always very organized with all of my paperwork and I know that was important to achieving my goal, to become a citizen. I appreciate all your help on behalf of me and my family.

Strongly Recommend this Firm
I worked with Feiner & Lavy since the beginning of 2013 when they helped me obtaining my US Visa. They resolved my problem after many attorneys advised me they could not help. Mr. Lavy is an excellent attorney, highly personable and thorough, and he is passionate about immigration law. I would happily hire Mr. Lavy again in the future, and I strongly recommend him to any person or employer looking for a highly professional and exceptional immigration attorney.

Most knowledgeable and compassionate office!!!
I would like to take the opportunity to thank the office of Feiner & Lavy PC and their wonderful staff. I was very fortunate to be referred to this office by a friend. From the very beginning until the end, Mr. Lavy and his team guided me through my case with patience and care. They responded to my questions in a timely manner and worked diligently, which is why I was able to obtain the documents I applied for in a matter of just a few months. I would like to say a special thanks to Jihan for guiding me and being so compassionate throughout the entire process. (She’s the best!) The team had helped me take a big step forward to the American dream.  This office perfectly illustrates an example of how a team of professionals could truly change someone’s life for the better. Once again, words cannot describe how thankful I am to this office. The staff almost became like my second family.  I would definitely recommend this office to someone looking for a knowledgeable lawyer. Thank you very much
