Craig assisted me and my wife through an Adjustment of Status (AOS) immigration case in order to obtain work authorization and a permanent resident card for my wife after we were married. Overall, we were very happy with the result - my wife received her permanent resident card in just under three months from the time we submitted our AOS application to the USCIS.
Although my wife and I felt comfortable that we would have been able to successfully navigate the immigration application and review process on our own, we decided to hire an immigration attorney for the following reasons:
- Heard a couple of horror stories from acquaintances regarding unfavorable outcomes when filing / applying for immigration status (however, also heard from several other people who had good experiences when going it alone)
- Receiving my wife's permanent resident status was time sensitive - only had about three months until we needed to travel internationally + accept a new full-time job offer
- Decided that the money spent on hiring an attorney to provide reassurance that the immigration process would result favorably for me and my wife would be well worth it for the peace of mind.
I contacted several immigration attorneys in the Syracuse area and opted for Craig because of the following reasons: i) I liked how thorough he was during our initial consultation, ii) his fee seemed reasonable, and iii) Craig and I built good rapport while on the phone (i.e., I liked him).
Working with Craig and his team was great. His online software support made filling out the AOS application a breeze. Further, Craig's team reviewed our application meticulously to check for errors before submitting to ensure we got everything right the first time. This alone probably saved me and my wife around 10 - 15 hours.
In general, Craig was responsive when we had questions or wanted to hear status updates once our application was submitted. He and his team were always professional and courteous. I actually enjoyed visiting with Craig at his office because he's such a regular, down-to-earth guy (and also very sharp). The other thing I appreciated when working with Craig, was his honesty. Craig was upfront with us from the start that he tended to approach matters with "cautious optimism." In other words, Craig did not simply tell us what we wanted to hear, but remained realistic and objective throughout the case (especially when discussing the chances that my wife would receive her immigration status within the three-month window that was crucial to our travel / work needs).
I highly recommend Craig to anyone in need of an attorney - for any matter. He's good people.

When I was involved in an auto accident, I needed an attorney to help me with my case. I searched the yellow pages and found Craig Nichols Law Firm. From the moment I called his office to set up an appointment I was totally impressed with the cheerful, caring, but very professional person who answered the phone. She gave me an appointment to meet with Attorney Craig Nichols, told me what paperwork I would need, and made sure I knew how to get to the office. When I met him for the first time I just knew he was the perfect attorney for my case. Attorney Craig Nichols is a very knowledgeable, caring, professional lawyer who goes above and beyond to help get you the results you were seeking. That is why I say ... call The Craig Nichols Law Firm today if you want a professional to handle your legal matters and give you the results you deserve.

Mr. Nichols handled a litigation matter for me. I must say that he quickly framed the relevant issues, prepared my case for trial, and brought forth the result that I desired. I got a chance to observe his skills in the courtroom and he was impressive, demonstrating a confident and intelligent demeanor, while showing the utmost respect for the Judge and opposing lawyer. It was obvious to me that he was quite comfortable in a courtroom environment. I highly recommend Mr. Nichols.
