I went to Jennifer during a very difficult time when my immigration status was part of one of the things affected by my divorce - My case was a lot more than just a Greencard waiver due to divorce. It was a lot more complicated than that - I was not only completely heartbroken and lost during this period of my life but I was about to give up on everything I have ever worked for in this country and go back to a country I didn't know anything about. I just didn't see a possibility to get my life back on track and my legal status adjusted after being left by my ex-husband who's the same person I have been in love with since I was thirteen. When I went to Jennifer I would always approach her with worst case scenario questions and she would always have a comfortable answer and/or many options available for me. She never doubted herself, me or my case. I know attorneys have many other clients but she would reach out to me as soon as she had an update on the case or just reply to one of my questions. She told me my case might take some time, maybe a few years - it took about two years which is a lot less than what I was expecting. I will always be grateful to attorney Jennifer Durkin and my advice to anyone losing hope on their case, please, before you give up come have a consultation with her before you decide on your future.

We hired Jennifer in May 2015 to process a marriage based permanent residency and adjustment of status. Jennifer was professional, friendly, informative, and was with us at every step in the process. She filed all of our documents on time, followed up with us when needed, and prepared and accompanied us to the interview. I had never worked with a lawyer before and found that Jennifer was always there to take my calls and put me at ease about my concerns. She was patient and understanding at all times. The whole process took about 10 months to complete (due to USCIS processing times) and she always made herself available if needed. Additionally, she setup a flexible payment plan that worked with our budget.
I would highly recommend working with Jennifer.

She is very professional, responsible and dedicated to the job once she is in. I had cases which were really desperate, I had had another attorney before her but that one simply dropped my case unannounced when she thinks it is difficult.
I found Jennifer and gain positive results. She worked all three of my cases successfully and payment scheme is flexible.
I had been hopeless on the cases but she did them brilliantly.
I can say without hesitation, she is the best in town.

Jennifer worked with us to handle my wife's immigration which we had complicated without trying. She was patient, listened to my story and worked with us to handle what had been defined as not a good case by my corporate lawyer. Jennifer was very good in understanding what exact reasons would help USCIS understand that ours was a case of misunderstanding and circumstances that were beyond our control. Very well done Jennifer and we appreciate you and your professionalism.

Jennifer Durkin has helped both of my parents and I on legalizing our immigration status here in the U.S. Our case was a little complex and it took years on settling it; but she finally helped us accomplish a big goal. I always recommend Jennifer because she definitely will work hard, intelligently, and effectively on one's case. Not only she will give you an expert advice on the field; but she will also come up with other options to tackle the problem if you'll ever have one with your case.

Jennifer Durkin has everything you could thing of of a lawyer, very professional,very knowledgeable, very warm, calm, very confident. She doesn't make you feel intimidated. She's very excellent at what she does! She gives you peace of mind.There's no doubt that I would go back to her when it's time to get my naturalization and when its time to file for my family back home! I am very confident to highly recommend her to everyone that needs immigration assistance/help.Thank you for everything and more power!

Jennifer helped me and my husband change my status from F-1 to permanent resident. There were some issues with my case, and she was upfront about it while also providing concrete solutions on how to address them.
Jennifer has also helped me in obtaining the status of "state resident" for tuition purposes at my school, which saved us nearly as much as her fee was (she is the human incarnation of "worth every penny"). She has also done a tremendous job at preparing us for the interview and making sure we had everything we needed.
But perhaps as important as her technical skill and knowledge is Jennifer's attitude. She is pleasant, smart, interested. She is the kind of person I would love having over for dinner. She also seems to get along with all of the other lawyers on her floor, who speak very highly of her.

We had initially filed our green card based marriage ourselves, but over the course, we ran into some personal incidents that we needed a good immigration lawyer.
We searched for a few before finally finding Ms. Durkin of Durkin & Puri, she not only helped us obtain my husband's green card but helped out with another case, with her great advice!
We had spoken with other immigration lawyers before her, they told us our case was tough and had very little chance. we were so disappointed.
But then we found Ms. Durkin after googling and reading some good things about her firm.
She was so different right from the beginning. She was so positive, patient, and the thing that got us was that she seemed to have experience in all sorts of immigration cases. She was so confident in us and told us we will be fine. We immediately hired for our AOS interview at garden city,
she prepped us endlessly. Even though our case was scheduled for another ( stokes) interview, which because we did have a really tough officer who was the not very nice at all and even in her experience, she never seen anyone like her.
In any case, to make the story short, she prepped us more for stokes interview, which we aced!
We have to say, she was totally positive, she prepped us endlessly, she prepared our documents so neat and organized for the officers to look at.
We are so thankful to her!!! We 100% recommend her to anyone who needs a great immigration lawyer!
