Honest and skilled lawyer
Ms. Kruger is honest about the probability of approval and does not take advantage of a client's tough situation. I chose her over those who do so. And the result was...approved!!

She is very professional and very helpful
I really appreciate Ms Julie for being helpful and professional, unfortunately I didn't hire her firm prior to filing my N400. Fortunately I was privileged to see her on YouTube, then contacted her office both herself and the receptionist that initially set up my consultation with her were both wonderful people. Ms Julie called me back exact time the receptionist gave me... She was very calm, listened and gave required professional views and advise..I will definitely recommend her firm to everyone. Keep up the good work Ms Julie

Life-Changing! Julie won our extremely hard and complex case.
Life-Changing. Julie was not only our attorney but our advocate during a time when we felt we did not have a voice. Our immigration story is one that spans over the time period of 5 years. We were originally denied. My husband was previously married and had kids (an arranged marriage) which unknowingly, I filled out the applications without this information. We didn't originally hire an attorney thinking we could fill out the forms.... However, that was the BIGGEST MISTAKE of our lives. The interview went horribly wrong as they thought my husband was using me for citizenship. This is the farthest thing from the truth but if we would have hired Julie from the start, I truly believe all of this would have been different. With that said, I am extremely happy that we did find Julie when we did. It was a devastating moment, to be denied. We called Julie Kruger to help us, she started immediately working on our file. She was strong, knew the law in and out, and walked us through all of our options. Due to our situation, we moved back to my home in Colorado to be close to family during this hardship. My husband couldn't work, couldn't drive, and couldn't travel to see his parents. It felt as though we were constantly living in a state of fear. To correct the wrongs we created at the beginning we started over and remarried in Colorado and waited years for a new interview (which was after TONS and TONS of paperwork- all of which Julie and her team assisted us with). Julie even flew to Colorado to attend the 2nd interview with us. Again, we were denied. Julie went over our options. We agreed with her that filing an appeal was the best recourse. It would be an extreme hardship for me to leave America, where I was born if forced to leave and be with my husband (which would have been Egypt). The appeal was filed and after a year and some months, we finally saw a WIN! The decision came back favorable for us. We still had a hurdle which was for the case to be sent back to the office that denied us. Again Julie and her team sent in a compelling letter with evidence and within days we received notice that my husband's GREEN CARD was on its way. Julie definitely has helped us to get through this difficult time and guided us through the entire immigration process. We highly recommend Julie Kruger and her law firm Kruger Immigration Law to help you as she helped us. The American Dream is real and possible, that is to be married to the one you love. Julie is very reasonable in her pricing and truly cares about your results. And let's be honest, I would have paid anything for her to help us. Thank you, Julie (and team) from the bottom of our hearts! You will always be like family to us. - Mimi and Ezy.
