She is very good. She is always on top of my cases. My family and I are very appreciated that our case have been gone so far although our case are very tough to handle. I am strongly recommended her for any immigration case.

Debbi is a winner - a highly intelligent and effective lawyer who is truly passionate about her clients. She was successful in getting my E2 investor’s visa approved for my startup business, which requires real expertise. Debbi is a true professional, knows the law and stays abreast of the latest developments in an ever-evolving and often puzzling area of immigration law. I would recommend Debbi without hesitation for even the most complex cases.
Having established some roots in the US, but on H1B status, I lost my job and the options seemed limited to getting another job immediately or packing my bags and getting on the plane. In a panic, I called several lawyers, most brought bad news and had little empathy for my state; few seemed to care and were generally dismissive. I then had the good fortune to be referred to Debbi Klopman. Debbi agreed to meet with me the same day and listened with patience and care, calming me down and giving me hope! She patiently assessed my situation over a couple of hours and quickly developed a strategy for success.
Over several months Debbi guided me through the E2 visa process, which however painful, resulted in a winning outcome. Debbi did such a good job with my case, and was so fastidious with the details, and wise with the positioning that “we” were immediately approved. It really was a team effort from start to finish. In fact, Debbi often drove me to succeed at my business in order to better bolster our case.
The E2 process is very complex undertaking with strict requirements, and in many respects it can be so frustrating that giving up seems the only rational decision. Debbi helped me stay the course through some rocky patches and delivered in the end. Throughout the process Debbi was understanding, always willing to bear the brunt of my very vocal frustrations and talk me off the ledge to get things done. Debbi knows the law, is really smart and was very clever in shaping a case. Most of all, Debbi really cares about her clients and is a genuinely nice person.

It was a huge pleasure working with Debbi!!
I was placed in a situation where I needed an O-1 visa in a very very short amount of time and I had zero knowledge about what was required/process ahead. From the very first phone call we had I knew that she was extremely knowledgable in her field, dedicated, focused and just a real person who cared. The task ahead seemed daunting and slightly unattainable however Debbi had faith in me and my situation and we worked together and it was a huge success! Debbi always put me as her number one priority even though she was juggling other clients and we also communicated on complete opposite time zones and she was still just as available to me! She guided me step by step through every process and explained it all in great detail. I could not be more thankful for Debbi's services but I also look forward to working with her in the future. She's a LEGEND!!!! Highly recommend!
