Tons of experience; cares about clients; attention to details.
We hired Michael to help us with our family-based green card application. Michael is very resourceful and has tons of experience with immigration. He made sure he know us and understand our situation, and made plans accordingly. He prepared us for interview with great attention to details and made sure we have a pleasant experience in the interview.

Amazing Immigration Lawyer that actually cares!
Michael H. Markovitch is an amazing attorney! He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful! His skills and suggestions led to the approval of my case. I would fully recommend his services to anyone that wants a great attorney that actually cares and knows the ins and outs of immigration law. Michael was always available for any of my questions and very responsive, even while he was abroad. Best immigration lawyer in NYC by far!

Naturalization case
Michael was extremly helpful in my naturalization process. I came to him extremely nervous as my previous attempt was denied. He knows immigration law extremly well and will always provide you with very honest and helpful feedback. He never over sells or makes fake promises. I will forever be thankful to Michael and his professionalism and most importantly the fantastic result he provided. Thank you Michael!!! Ghita

Best immigration attorney in NYC!
We chose Michael as our attorney after we consulted over 10 lawyers in NYC. Our H1B case is very complicated, nearly none of the lawyers we went to have done similar cases before and there are a lot of difficulties during the preparation. We have prepared for the worst situation, but Michael got the visa done successfully even without RFE. The result is absolutely beyond our expectations, and we would recommend him for any immigration cases.

I-485 adjustment of of status
Michael helped me to file I-485 to get Green Card. Needless to say about his experience and knowledge, he is calm and personable. It made stressful process much easier. I got a lot of information through internet article, but in the end what Michael said was correct. I recommend him highly.

Rock of Gibraltar
Michael's knowledge and experience were striking from the very beginning and his personality and manner set one at ease on subjects that can sometimes be nerve-wracking. He draws creatively on his decades of experience, rather than simply falling back on them, to propose imaginative solutions. His devotion to the law and its purposes and his high ethical standards are also impressive. As solid as the Rock of Gibraltar.

Lawyer Michael is the best immigration lawyer you can ever get. He was recommended by a relative whom he helped couple of years ago and currently helping me with my case and I'm overwhelmingly impressed at his work. He is so calm and but interactive. He is very skilled at what he does with very unique professionalism. He is very prompt and quickly reaches out anytime necessary. His work is very exceptional and of good quality. Lawyer Michael strives to get the best for his clients. Your office is definitely on top of its work. I would always choose you over and over again and it's extremely pleasing and an amazing experience working with you. You are the best!

Excellent immigration lawyer
I discussed with Michael in February 2020 my options to get a permanent residency without asking for support from an employer. He evaluated my case and recommended an application for EB1A as a self-petitioner. Within a month Michael had prepared the petition with extensive documentation about my personal and professional achievements. He filed the petition with Premium Processing and also concurrently my I-485 / EAD / Advanced Parole. Within 11 days my case was approved without any RFE. This was only possible because he is extremely experienced and knows exactly which documentation needs to be compiled in order to avoid RFEs. Additionally, Michael is extraordinarily organized and communicates very efficiently and clear what made the collaboration a real pleasure. Thank you very much Michael for your services! I highly recommend Michael for any immigration-related issue.
