Dena's representation was a complete ease
I worked with Dena on my Immigration case through marriage. I definitely recommend her to anyone needing a caring and responsive lawyer. Her reliable efforts led to the approval of my case and then eventually getting citizenship after 5 years. I will definitely work with her again to sponsor my family to immigrate to the US. She was patient and thorough during the whole process. Explaining in clear language my options which removed the personal stress. Dena's representation was truly a blessing and well worth her fees.

Ms. Nancy
Dena was very attentive to detail and very prompt about communication which helped ease the stress and pressure of the process. Even if not available she was always prompt about returning a call in a timely manner as well as email responses. I would highly recommend to any friend or family

An excellent lawyer
We used Dena for her immigration services. She was great, very well organized and very knowledgeable about our process. A process that was a smooth one. Everything was in order and for our interview she met us at USCIS office which put us at ease and in the end our case got approved. We thank her whole heartedly for everything.

Best Attorney!
Dena is the best! She is so patient and friendly, and understanding! Filing for bankruptcy is a scary, and stressful thing to have to do, but she was there every step of the way to answer all of my questions. She made sure that everything was clear, and prompt.

Experience was evident from the start!
Bankruptcy can be a difficult and overwhelming topic of discussion and Dena made that conversation quite easy. At our very first meeting, it was apparent to me that she was knowledgeable in this area and could recommend an appropriate course of action for my financial situation. After talking it over, I decided to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy and Dena made the process almost painless. The documents that are required for filing are tedious as well as extensive and there is no way I would have had the strength to navigate the process independently. She asked questions to get a complete picture of my financial situation, walked me through the necessary documents and made suggestions/recommendations on how to spend money in the period immediately preceding filing. She also prepared me with worse case scenario situations should my petition not be accepted. Dena was flexible with meetings as I'm a full time working, single mom and had only very specific days/times that we could meet. At the end of the day, my chapter 7 petition was accepted after a very brief bankruptcy hearing. My paper work was in order and following a few simple questions, I was granted the fresh start I so desperately needed. Working with Dena was such a pleasure and I'm so appreciative of her hard work and expertise. Without the ability to start again, I'm not sure where my family would be today.
