I embarked upon the process for an E -2 visa in the last week of October 2016, through the auspices of Davies & Associates, highly recommended by a friend. But due to unavoidable circumstances i had to request for a refund in November 2016, (before even developing/putting together business plan) Mr. Parkins Burger (Davies & Associates) agreed for a refund and referred the case to Mr Mark for the final refund. After which i also reached out and explained the whole issue to Mr. Mark in an elaborate email, BUT i got nothing in response, not even a reply/email. I have called Mr. Park a number of times, but i have only been told that it takes time and that Davies and Associates is doing it's best. Well Mr. Mark /Davies & Associates your best is'nt good enough, cause i have not got my refund even after FIVE months despite repeated requests. I have had a highly disappointing and frustrating experience of doing business with Davies & Associates.

My experience in dealing with Mr Mark and his firm was excellent. I have been dealing with him and his firm for the last 3 years. He helped me to get my E2 visa in the USA followed by my E2 visa renewal as well. He is the best immigration Lawyer I have ever met. He will helps you in many possible ways to get your visa approved. As far as I know, he has never had a case denied in the last 15 years.
No one else can give you better service than his firm. If you need he can also you to suggest a good business.
If you need any further information you can contact me any time.

I used Davies & Associates for my L1A application and was highly pleased and satisfied with their service and professionalism.
My petition was already denied once. Our business was a new office L1A case and small relatively to other large corporations filing L1's and that was the biggest challenge to present our case!
I had many meetings with Mark while he was in India and also in the US in the buildup to filing the petition in order for them to understand our business. This is crucial because very few attorneys actually travel to india and conduct appointments. Mark is well knowledgeable and aware about all laws pertaining specially to India which makes him very unique compared to other attorneys that I tried to speak before passing my denied case. He pointed out where we made mistakes in our last petition and gave me a checklist of things that we need to do in order to rectify and present our case again.
After we agreed to appoint Mark Davies,
I was assigned a 1-to-1 attorney who was highly professional and always available and kept me informed on progress and Mark was on top of things and always checking if I had any questions or queries and overlooking how the case is coming along.
We setup an online dropbox folder for our case so all documents were always accessible and I was given a checklist of documents to arrange.
My petition was approved in less than a week without having an RFE(which are so common now for L1) as all the points were covered in the main petition and nothing was left unattended.
Coming from a denied petition first time and getting an approval without an RFE in my opinion is definately commendable.
A case presented to USCIS needs to be presented once and presented well otherwise one will only waste time and money.
I would definitely recommend Davies & Associates and would definitely use their service for our extension case as I was highly pleased with my experience

Mark was a great immigration lawyer. He was attentive, courteous and very responsive. At times I felt uneasy and he definitely came to the rescue.
It was a true pleasure working with Mark. I would definitely use him again.

I worked with Matt on my denied immigration case the last 3 months. I needed my case be appealed in less than 30 days. Matt was very patient, professional, careful and very helpful in giving me instructions and advice (we contacted via phone and email because I was living in Virginia) to make sure that he could collect all the evidence which was used to file an appeal. The appeal was filed on time. Surprisingly, just one month later my case was reopened, and I happily received my green card three weeks after that!
Thank you Davies & Associates, LLC very much, especially Matthew Merrick! I would recommend him with everyone who has any trouble in immigration status.

I know many of Davies's clients. We all agree he is not the cheapest but is the very very best L and EB5 lawyer working with Indians. If you want to win you case you need to hire Davies and no one else.
His firm is the only immigration firm with a real office in India, the other have administrative assistants who pretend to be lawyers. Davies comes here himself to visit clients and has lawyers in the US who help and are also available to answer questions. Unlike other lawyers I spoke to Davies really knows India and meets his clients in India. He met me in Chandigarh where I own and operate a business with over 40 employees. His understanding of how things work in India made the other immigration lawyers I spoke to by phone in USA look silly.
Davies warned me that L visas from India get a lot of scrutiny and while he has never had a case denied they are frequently denied and get questioned.
Davies helped me open my business in the US. His tax lawyer saved me a lot of money. My visa was approved with no questions using the rapid process which while I had to pay an extra fee to the US government for Davies did not charge me any extra, he told me it was not really any extra work for his firm so why would he charge me more.
I live near Chandigarh and there are now a lot of people in Chandigarh with using Davies and his firm. No one has ever said a bad word about Davies.
As an Indian businessman I have grown to distrust lawyers but I would trust Davies without hesitation.
One friend had already used another lawyer from the USA from a firm with 15 immigration lawyers and got denied. Davies looked at his application, improved the business plan and added other evidence, he then re-filed the case and it was immediately approved.
If you hire anyone other than Davies you are not hiring the best.

I think Mark is the best lawyer that I ever interacted with in several countries where I lived. He is very knowledgeable and highly competent in his field (immigration law). Despite his obviously busy schedule, he manages to keep track of a lot of details in the cases he is working on. Unlike many other lawyers, he is accessible and never never forgets answering your questions.
Like a good doctor, he gives you several options in dealing with the case, discusses the outcomes and suggests the optimal direction. I wholly attribute to Mark's help the success of my case, which I already considered pretty hopeless, before I hired him.
I strongly recommend Mark as an excellent immigration lawyer.

This is the only immigration-only law firm, with Ivy League lawyers who trained in the world's largest corporate law firms... they are my ONLY choice for immigration/visa needs, done right the first time!

Mark helped me to obtain my foreign citizenship. During the whole process he was extremely professional and responsive; always forward thinking and planning strategies as how to proceed without creating false expectations. We worked together hand in hand for over a year, during this period I got the opportunity to see his skills and talent in dealing with stressful international immigration procedures. From my experience he is extremely knowledgeable in US and UK immigration laws and cares immensely for each case as if was his own! JR

Mr. Davies was great as my immigration lawyer, I would say without hesitancy, the best immigration lawyer that I have ever hired. He was very knowledgeable, extremely professional and always available when I needed to talk to him about my case. I will definitively recommend Mr. Davies.
