Exceptional Immigration Attorney - A Game-Changer for EB-1 Green Card Approval
I cannot express enough gratitude for the outstanding services provided by Attorney Radu throughout the entire EB-1 Green Card application process. One of the most commendable aspects of my experience with this attorney was their ability to be to the point and efficient. Time is of the essence in immigration matters, and my attorney recognized this, streamlining the process without compromising the thoroughness required for a successful outcome. Their efficiency not only saved time but also ensured that every aspect of my case was meticulously handled. What truly set my immigration attorney apart was their unwavering commitment to making the seemingly daunting process accessible for someone like me, who initially lacked confidence. They patiently explained every step, clarified complex legal jargon, and provided the guidance I needed to navigate the intricate immigration landscape. This personalized approach not only instilled confidence in me but also made the entire journey much more manageable. The attorney's expertise in EB-1 Green Card cases was evident throughout the process. Their in-depth knowledge of immigration laws and regulations, coupled with a keen understanding of the unique requirements for this category, proved instrumental in the success of my application. I always felt reassured that I was in the hands of a professional who not only knew the intricacies of the law but also had a genuine interest in securing a positive outcome for me. I am profoundly thankful for the support and dedication exhibited by my immigration attorney. Their commitment to excellence and the success of their clients is truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone navigating the complexities of immigration law, especially for those pursuing an EB-1 Green Card. If you are looking for an attorney who is not only efficient but also empowers you with confidence throughout the process, look no further. This attorney is a true asset, and I am grateful to have had them by my side.

Wonderful experience
We had a great experience in getting our green card processed with Radu. He is highly proficient and quick to reply to our messages/concerns and got things done in a highly efficient manner. The whole process was extremely smooth. Highly recommended!

NIW and EB1
It was a fantastic experience working with Radu. I was told by a different attorney in 2022 that my profile was not strong enough to apply for NIW. I was fortunate to contact Radu for a second opinion. He reviewed my resume and told me that I had "a great profile for NIW and a decent one for the EB1." We decided to benign with an NIW application, followed by an EB1 application. We began working on my NIW application in July 2022, and it was approved in September 2022. We worked on my EB1 application in June 2023, and it was approved six months later in December. I am thoroughly impressed by Radu's ability to provide valuable insights, exhibit professionalism in his work, and respond promptly to any queries or concerns.

Best immigration lawyer
Radu worked on my Eb1 application. He was recommended by multiple friends who he had worked with. He was honest, forthcoming about my application and things I needed to improve. Right from the first meeting, I was impressed by his clear vision he had and guided me step by step. He was prompt to answer any questions that came up during the process. I developed absolute trust in him and followed his advise on every step. I have recommended him to many others and will continue to do so.

He cares!
I had a very complicated case that the original attorney who initiated the application messed up badly. I asked Radu to take over the case as I heard good things about him from a friend. Long story short he did an amazing job. I had so little hope to get my green card. Not only I got my green card (yesterday), I had peace of mind throughout the whole process as Radu was always available, well organized, and on top of things this whole time.

Lawyer par excellence!!
I had an exellent eperience with Mr Vasilescu for my EB1 application. I talked to a couple of lawyers and they asked me to work further on my profile. Mr Radu was optimistic from the start. Also I was on a tight timeline. Mr Radu and team worked with me closely on the tight timeline, they were very appropachable throughtout the process and did an amazing job. They paid attention to the details and to my surprise my Eb1b got approved within a week.

Exceptional and truly grateful to have decided on Radu!
I am writing a review based on an EB1 application for GC. My husband was the primary applicant. Radu (and Korbin) provided exceptional service throughout the process. He was very experienced with the process and issues related to it. His efficiency in handling our case and guiding us through the complex filling process has been invaluable. His prompt responses, attention to detail, and expertise also deserve a mention. An excellent fit for us!

BEST immigration lawyer - Period!
Radu is a star! Hire him if you really care about your case! Over the years, I’ve had to use multiple immigration lawyers. For EB1 specifically, I have worked with some of the most elite immigration law firms as well as individual lawyers with their own practice but Radu, BY FAR, is the BEST lawyer I’ve ever worked with. I had got an RFE when I came to Radu upon recommendation of a friend whose EB1 case Radu got approved. Radu took the time to understand my case fully and helped develop a plan to tackle the RFE. Not only that, Radu stands out for his professionalism -- he is very responsive and communicated really clearly. He is faster on turnaround than any other lawyer -- I only had a few days left for my RFE, but Radu worked day and night to get the response in, and we got approved! Even when we had other immigration-related questions related to traveling outside the country on visas or EAD cards, Radu never hesitated to answer our queries. There are NO hidden fees and charges; no no false promises. Radu respects your timeline and moves fast. We can't recommend him enough and feel grateful to have found him! Thank you Radu! Forever grateful!

Best Immigration Lawyer I’ve ever come across.
Over the years, I’ve had to use multiple immigration lawyers but Radu, by far, is the best lawyer I’ve ever worked with. He took the time to understand my case fully and helped develop a plan to create the supporting documents to support an EB1 filing. On top of that, he was really responsive and communicated really well. He was quick with the filings too! Couldn’t asked for a better support system than him. Would highly recommend!!

Best Immigration Lawyer
I was referred to Radu by my colleague when everyone rejected my EB1 case. Radu gave me assurance that I had 7/10 chance, and I should definitely pursue this. I went ahead and followed the tips for reference letters, improving CV, personal statement etc. Those turned-out to be game changer and my EB1 got approved without RFE. His experience in the field is truly worth appreciating. Radu is always quick to respond to emails even on weekends. I had truly a great experience working with Radu and would recommend him as a reliable, efficient and wise lawyer. His team is equally good as well. I would rate him number 1 immigration lawyer.

Hard work pays off! Superior!
Radu just works, all of the time. You don't have to worry about your case because he is worried to get you approved more than you do. it is hard to find an attorney like him, humble and absolutely gives his best, and it was a "no-brainer" to hire him. I would say "stop the search", just start the process. Thank you, Radu!

Radu is an amazing attorney. I have worked with other attorneys for EB1 but Radu is the best. He is efficient, fast and responds to you right away. He is very involved in your case and makes the best if it. I’m so happy Radu was my attorney. We finished our EB1 application in 3 months time total which is very fast. He was very supportive through the process and he understands the needs of his client and individualizes the plan. I will recommend Radu as an attorney with full support. I’m glad I found Radu to help me with the process. His expertise is best in the field and I have many friends who are already lining up to have him as his attorney.

If u are looking for an EB1 immigration attorney, please talk to and retain Radu. Not only will he make a great case for you but his communication/responsiveness will leave u impressed. Most of the times he will reply within minutes and will have multiple such email communications with you throughout the day. He will make the best possible case for you and give you best possible advice. He knew about my case in and out every time I spoke with him. Would recommend him for your immigration needs 100 percent

Excellent
I am so glad I got connected to Mr. Vasilescu for my EB-1. He is undoubtedly very knowledgeable, sincere, and compassionate. Since the beginning of the process, he has been accommodating and approachable. Because of his expertise and support, I didn't have to do much from my side on this tedious process. I can not thank Mr. Vasilescu enough in words, and I want to say you are awesome!

An expert lawyer in matters of skilled immigration
Honest, trustworthy and supremely knowledgeable in the US skilled immigration laws, Radu should be your go-to lawyer - PERIOD! My family and I filed our EB-1A applications with Radu and he was there every step of the way to guide us (via emails, texts as well as via frequent zoom calls), providing us with expert advice that honestly I haven't been able to find elsewhere including with my work lawyers. Radu is very hardworking and understands the strengths and weaknesses of each case and worked hand-in-hand with us to ensure we were putting our best foot forward, all the way from how/when to file the applications to how to promote ourselves with supporting letters, how to write the personal statements, prepare a compelling argument, etc. Radu is very well versed in immigration laws, but moreso, he constantly keeps himself abreast of new regulations coming out. He was able to advise me appropriately on when to file the EB-1A (and as another option, the NIW and how to proceed given that the NIW application is going through a phased process of being filed in premium processing should it come to that). I already have my EB-1A approval thanks to Radu and am waiting for my AOS to go through. You will not be disappointed having Radu as your lawyer.

Best immigration lawyer!
If you are looking for a no-nonsense lawyer who is thoroughly professional and well-versed in U.S. immigration laws, then Mr. Radu Cristian Vasilescu is your man. We worked with him to file our EB1A applications, and Radu guided us through each and every step. One thing that stood out to us was Radu's professionalism. He responds to queries immediately and schedules meetings from time to time so that you are equally involved in the process. Even when we had other immigration-related questions related to traveling outside the country on visas or EAD cards, Radu never hesitated to answer our queries. There are no hidden fees and charges. There are no false promises. Radu respects your timeline and moves accordingly. We can't recommend him enough and feel grateful to have found him.

EB1A
Radu is extremely professional, diligent and an honest attorney. I was stuck with Jeffries law firm (NY) for 2 years and finally fired them for incompetence (still waiting for refund). I approached Radu in August, 2022. Within few weeks, my letters were ready and we filed in October. I got my EB1A approved within 1 week. Highly recommend him for EB1A filing. He is very knowledgeable about this process, will guide you honestly and keeps a close loop of communication. I can't thank my luck, that our paths crossed.

The man knows his job
I recently got approval for my EB1, this after another reputable attorney had her doubts that she didnot even consider my filing. I was given vague advices about my case and lost 3 months time and few hundred dollars for nothing. Enters this guy, we have a video chat and he is fully prepared and tells me the pros and cons of my case, also comes up with a plan to move forward. Honestly i was taken aback a little when he came across so confident in handling my case due to my previous bad experience, as another reviewer has mentioned that he is thorough professional who will guide you correctly. i was highly impressed by his individual approach to the case and his knowledge about how to project my work in my field, he was well versed with terminology in my field which is unusual to say the least. He provided me with valuable feedback for my case and helped with drafting my application and other stuff very swiftly, he delivered always what he promised on time, i can wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who needs honest and clear advice for their immigration case

Great experience with our Green Card application process
Radu was honest and detail oriented. He walked us through the process and was very patient with us. He was able to use his experience provide advice on how to structure our recommendation letters and what will drive the most impact. Both my husband and I would highly recommend his services.
