Extremely satisfied with Non-immigrant visa advice !
I had a discussion with Kolette on a complex visa scenario for my wife who wanted move from J1 Research to J1 clinical. Kolette was very detailed and clear in her responses and answered all my questions to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend her !

I am never one to post a review be it good, bad, or indifferent. However, my experience with Kolette and her paralegal Tina deserve everything that follows. I have worked with attorneys before in varying capacities. I have always felt like I was just a body and never really developed any kind of relationship with that attorney. I can tell you that from day 1, Kolette and her staff treated me like I was family. Kolette and Tina were THEE most friendliest, personable, educated, experienced people, let alone, attorney and paralegal that I have ever worked with. They assisted me in the process of obtaining a work authorization and green card for my sister-in-law. The process was flawless. No hiccups, no resubmission, no problems...ever! The entire process was handled in such a professional, family-like manner that I still can't believe its all over. If it were possible to rate 10 stars then I would. I HIGHLY recommend Kolette and her team to assist in any way possible if you are looking for an attorney in an area in which they specialize. Thank you again to Kolette and Tina and the rest of the firm for all of your hard work and for making the immigration process seem simple.
