Sharon is a valuable member of our immigration legal community. I have sought Sharon’s advice on a number of immigration cases and her guidance was instrumental in obtaining successful outcomes for my clients. Sharon’s experience and solid knowledge of the law, coupled with her sharp personality makes her an excellent counselor. I strongly recommend her to anyone seeking an immigration attorney.

Sharon did a great job with my K1 Visa application. A usual 6 month process was completed in 3 months. Sharon is very detailed and organized. I would recommend her for anyone in need of an experienced Immigration Lawyer.

Sharon took away all of the stress for me while immigrating to the United States. She was always available to answer my questions, was deeply caring, honest and incredibly hard working. Hiring Sharon Ames was the smartest decision I made. I would highly recommend her services, as her help during this process was invaluable.
