Excellent professional and person
Ms. Henner has taken care of my entire immigration process with grace, professionalism, commitment and pride. She has been available for phone calls and emails and was also able to explain the terms and conditions of next steps necessary for my case to succeed. What's very important is her attention to detail and thoroughness and in-depth knowledge of the U.S. immigration law. This well-experienced attorney is definitely trustworthy and I would recommend contacting her office to any person who is serious of his / her future in this great country. Surely, Susan is the best attorney I have ever known and worked with.

Excellent Immigration counsel
I have known Ms. Henner for nearly 20 years. She possesses tremendous knowledge of immigration law, including criminal matters and asylum. I have referred clients to her in the past and all were extremely pleased with her services. She is an excellent immigration lawyer and has helped clients to get visas and residency, as well as to avoid deportation.

She knows her stuff!
I have been asked for immigration attorneys in my role in Human Resources and have found that Ms. Henner is always gotten the highest ratings from the people I have referred. The fact that she speaks Spanish has put some of the referrals at ease but the fact that she can answer their questions and help with all their immigrations issues is what they seem to like best!

Excellent, Trustworthy and Smart..Have Referred Her to Many People.
We called Susan Henner after our previous lawyer completely screwed up our case. She quickly explained what was wrong and filed the correct papers. We could have saved so much money had we known about Susan in the first place. Use her, she is trustworthy and fair!

Immigration Attorney
Ms. Henner was an excellent attorney. My company first used her in order to obtain an H1B visa for an employee. Then, we used her again to obtain green cards for several employees. She was always helpful and responsive about the cases and she knew the law well. We would highly recommend her to others.

OBVIOUSLY MS. HENNER WROTE THE LAST FIVE REVIEWS ABOUT HERSELF
It's beyond obvious that the last five 5 star reviews were each written by Ms. Henner. They are all over the top in praise, but short on facts and accuracy. Pathetic. Just pathetic.

Were zero stars an option...
This woman is running a racket and has no sense of organization or integrity. She has no problem lying about what she and her office have or have not done and I have it all in writing which is incredible that a professional attorney and grown woman would resort to such measures. I was dealing with her for 9 months trying to help my mother get US citizenship after Henner was recommended to me by my aunt (mom's sister) after having a smooth experience with her own process. Susan's office seems to have extremely fast turnover and every time I received any email from them (which was only in response to when I would reach out first) it was from somebody new and therefore I had to provide the information over and over again. Now Susan is claiming that I ignored her office's numerous attempts to contact me over the months that my paperwork was not submitted and that she has ample proof of this. Now that I've asked her for all this proof, she discharged me as a client and threatened to take action about harassment. So no proof, no results, just straight up lies and delusion. What a horrifying experience.

Response from Susan Henner June 7, 2022
Ella: I am sorry you were not happy with our services. As you are aware, you were not able to provide us with the documents we requested from you. Your mom could not provide the documents we requested as they did not exist. We filed your mom's based on what you presented and additional documents were requested - as you failed to provide what was requested. We have indeed provided to you copies and proof of everything requested and filed. Sometimes if you do not have proof and documents, we are not able to assist every client. I wish you the best of luck.

SIMPLY STAY AWAY FROM THIS WOMAN
Beyond terrible! If there was an option for NO STAR she would be the perfect candidate. SIMPLY STAY AWAY FROM SUSAN HENNER She will get all your money then find an excuse to throw you under the bus. Once you’re deported your options are none!
Response from Susan Henner December 20, 2021
Mr. Battistotti: We were sorry we were not able to obtain the result you desired on your case. Although we try our best, we can't guarantee an outcome on any case. Please note that no one in our office has ever "thrown you under a bus" and that we even refunded your family money to assist in your legal matter. Best of luck to you in the future.
