Jane is impeccable!! All thanks to Jane's magnificent work, I had two successful O1 visa approvals. I can't express how grateful I am. My case was incredibly difficult and I knew I was at the borderline. Before finding Jane, I tried two other lawyers and as soon as I had my consultation with her, I knew she was THE one I'm supposed to work with. There was no doubt. She was above and beyond compared to the other lawyers I have worked with. I have been working with Jane for years and I will continue to use her services. If you are looking for O1, Jane is your to-go lawyer. You will not regret it.

Awesome Lawyer!
As a classical concert pianist, I was so fortunate to have Jane as my attorney to get my O1 b visa. In the last years the bar for this visa has raised a lot, Jane warned me about it in the beginning before starting the process. We started the process in July and the case was filed in the first part of September. I got the approval in November without any request for evidence or any other problem. During the application process, she guided me to get all the documents that I needed, giving me very clear instructions about details that I could not even imagine. She was so meticulous that she didn't file until the documents were prepared in the way that she wanted. The communication was excellent. During the application process I asked her a lot of questions and she always answered me very quickly. She let me know all the fees at the beginning and there was no surprise. Her fee is more than fair compared to her service. It was very evident all the work that she put for the case. I highly recommend Jane and I would hire her in the future without any hesitation if I need an immigration attorney.

Excellent attorney, someone you can trust blindly
Jane helped me secure my O1 visa in the business category. I was introduced to her through my company who assured me that she was the best O1 lawyer in the country. Over the period of 6 months, she helped me navigate through every step of the complex process. She was extremely thorough and details oriented. She would review each of my testimonial letters in great detail and directly work with me/my recommenders to iterate them to make sure that I was getting the best recommendations. When I got an RFE (thanks to the recent administration), she worked hard to respond to each and every of the issues raised by the USCIS. As an applicant, you might think that you are doing most of the heavy lifting by securing all the letters and documents, but you would be surprised at how much extra work she puts behind the scenes into every application. In my case, she was even able to secure an industry expert and have her review my case to further improve my application! If she has taken up your case, you can be assured that she will be personally invested in your success till the end. Without doubt, she is extremely knowledgable and experienced at her work. Her success rates speak for themselves. She is also very approachable, honest and kind. She was patient with all my (at times, random) queries and was able to respond to most of my emails within a few hours. By the end, I felt I could trust her completely with my case. I feel extremely fortunate to have found her and would continue to work with her for all my immigration-related needs from now on. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for an attorney.

Just got my third 3 years O1 Visa with Jane!
I've been working with Jane for almost a decade. She is the best immigration lawyer that I know. Before working with her, other lawyers told me that I would never get the O1 Visa and I'm happy to say that I proved them wrong 3 times! Jane is VERY straight forward, honest, no frills and gets the job done. Her assistant, Stephanie did an amazing job! When she went through my material, she made sure that everything was clear and presented in the best way possible. She is also very patient, she got back to my numerous emails in a timely manner. Jane is professional and extremely knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone searching for an immigration lawyer

Jane took my case even if was a difficult one and she helped me and was clear and efficient in every step of getting my O-1 visa for USA. Being able to get my visa completely changed my life for good so I’ll never be thankful enough for what she did for me. She is always my number one recommendation for anyone interested in getting a visa for USA!

Jane Orgel saved me more than once
I had a pretty difficult case, and Jane got my O1 Visa approved twice ! Each time she worked very hard for my case and went the extra mile to have my visa approved. She's VERY prepared, she took care of every single detail in my application. Jane is honest and very straight-forward, with her amazing knowledge she laid down all of my options and always gave me the best advice. It's very hard to find a lawyer that you can trust in Nyc , and I would trust Jane's work with my eyes closed.

The Virtue of Jane
Jane and her team welcomed me warmly to their office. She successfully navigated to file an H1B and when I won the green card I requested her assistance to file the paperwork right through my citizenship. She is professional, very informative, reliable, dedicated and passionate about her work. Jane keeps you informed each and every step. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for assistance in any immigration matter.

Successfully filed my O1 Visa though Jane
I'll be honest, she's pretty stern and very straight forward, but definitely got the job done! Jane was recommended to me by a friend who filed an O1 Visa through her successfully. After acquiring her services, I was also able to successfully file and obtain my O1 Visa. Jane is very knowledgable, and she lays everything out pretty clearly. I will definitely be filing my next working Visa through her. There is still a lot of individual work involved in an O1 Visa, even with the support of a lawyer, so keep that in mind if it's your first time filing.

Complex L-1 and H-1B cases successfully handled
Jane has successfully handled several challenging L and H cases for our start-up US operation. She got the initial one year L-1A visa for our manager from the UK and then processed the extension. This was at a time when the US office consisted of only two employees. After that, she obtained an H-1B for a manager where the case was based solely on work experience as the applicant did not have a bachelor's degree. More recently, she obtained an L-1B Specialized Knowledge visa for an employee from our UK office who only had about two years' experience in total. I have every confidence in Jane's knowledge & ability.

Review Jane Orgel - O1 Visa's
I hired Jane Orgel based on a recommendation from a work colleague of mine who had successfully recruited Jane's services to obtain an O-1 Visa. Having extensively researched other practices, "no win - no fees" (tempting!) firms... - Jane for me was my obvious choice. I trusted Jane and her team to handle my case for 01-visa status with care, diligence and meticulous attention to detail. This proved to be very much the case. The process was personally hard for many reasons - namely, the level of work required and evidence needed which, to put bluntly, I could not have managed without knowing Jane and her team where only ever an email away to advise, guide and aid me throughout the entire process. For anyone about to embark on applying for an 01-Visa, hire wisely and hire someone that is at the very top echelons of their field, because it isn't an easy process. I recommend Jane whole-heartedly, she is unquestionably extremely knowledgeable of the system and knows exactly what is required on behalf of her clients. Jane's approach is direct, no frills, upfront and honest - this is, in my opinion, the characteristics you need when looking to recruit a lawyer and I would hire Jane again - without hesitation - in the future if required.

Jane Orgel provided me with the highest levels of professional services from the first day I met her. She clearly explained to me the scope of services and the nature of my case. Jane showed full knowledge of the immigration process and provided me and my family with guidance and counsel that led to successful approval of my case. I was really impressed with the staff at her office that showed courtesy and professionalism. Thank you Jane!!

100% Success Rate for H1-B!
We have been working with Jane for many many years, regarding securing H1-B visas and renewals for our employees. Immigration matters are often critical to our success, and Jane has demonstrated a 100% success rate. Jane has been dedicated and helpful, especially impressive as we have thrown many tough cases at her. For the ones that prove more difficult, she sticks with it to the end, making certain we know exactly what is needed to respond to DHS to eventually win the case. She recently won an especially difficult case for us, specifically, which called into question the credentials of the applicant. It required a good amount of our time, but it was worth it because Jane was clear in what was needed, and, we just learned, she won the case for us!

The best I have seen and I have seen many!,,
Jane is the best!, She helped my whole family get their green cards. Before we met Jane, my parents had a different lawyer working on their Green Card case. It was a nightmare!, that lawyer botched my parents case and did not return our calls but took our money. Then, we met Jane. What a difference! She had to fix the mistakes the previous lawyer made and she was able to help my parents get their Green Cards.She kept us informed at all time and always reply back to us with our questions. I never felt neglected like I felt with the other lawyer who did not call back with our questions. Jane still answer my immigration questions to this day! She is very passionate about what she does and she treats you with respect. Even her staff is very friendly and helpful. I recommend her to anyone looking for an immigration lawyer. I know it's hard to find a good one when you have so many to choose from but with Jane, you can't go wrong.

I signed contract with Jane in 2010 and since then she has done excellent job. She is true professional in approach and has grip on all issues. She always responded well in time and completed her work in time.

Truly a life saver
My wife and I brought a very complicated immigration case to Jane. In our initial consultation she warned us that it would take time and be very trying emotionally. Throughout the process there were endless forms and arcane, Alice in Wonderland type regulations. Jane kept us clam and made us believe that we had a representative who could handle whatever was thrown at us. Thanks to Jane, our family is now reunited and living together in the United States. At a time when we needed someone with an in depth knowledge of the law and who is also trustworthy, Jane was there for us. We remain forever grateful.

Professional, Friendly and Expert Green Card Advice
Jane helped me with my first H-1B application, the work visa renewal and with a complicated Green Card application. She and her assistants explained everything to me very clearly and had a very organized and simple system of forms and checklists to help me collect the information and documents that they needed to fill out the actual (much more complicated!!) government forms. She handled all the communication with my employer which was an immense relief since they had been less-than-helpful in my direct dealings with them. A friend had recommended Jane to me, and I want to pass that endorsement along amplified a hundred times. In addition to being clearly highly competent, Jane and her staff were incredibly understanding, friendly, and patient in dealing with my anxious repeated questions on the same issues. They were also very very responsive: Jane *always* replied to my emails in less than a day and more often within a matter of hours. My Green Card application was complicated by the fact that my employer had to re-advertise the position and Jane dealt with this process very effectively and smoothly. All in all, I can’t recommend her highly enough!

Perfect choice for me
I prepared my O1 VISA with Jane. She took care of all details of paperwork. At first time, I had little hard time to prepare it. But in the end, I absolutely understand why she is very punctual in checking paperwork. Because, one of my friends who hired another lawyer, he had really hard time and took so long to approve his O1 VISA. I put my trust in her ability.

Fast, efficient and knowledgeable - well worth your money
Jane demystified a seemingly impenetrable wall of process and paperwork and successfully helped me to attain an E3 working visa for the US on the first attempt. My situation was particularly unusual and Jane ensured I had every base covered for the interview. Jane responded promptly and clearly to all of my emails even with our opposite timezones. I will certainly be getting her to handle any and all of my future immigration concerns.
