Best lawyer, highly recommended
I’ve hired Gevork to help with visa’s for my parents from Ukraine. In emergency and war situation he provided necessary guidance in time consuming process to acquire immigration visas in very short time with success. Whole process for immigration visa’s for Ukrainians in Frankfurt was very new and unknown, Mr Arutunian got information quickly and help save a lot of time and headache. I’m very happy with results. He is very kind and thoughtful. Thoroughly guided us though each step, assistance provided without any delay or hesitation day and late nights. He always follow up with text, email or phone call with progress and provided what with needed info. I am so grateful for working with him and would highly recommend to everyone. And very reasonable in price. Thank you for standing with Ukraine and been good attorney!

USCIS
We hired Gevork for our USCIS DOCUMENT portion of our visa. He was thorough and got our paperwork acceptance from the start. We did not have any questions or have to resubmit documents. A++ would definitely hire again.

Truly personable, dependable and responsive!
After searching and contacting many immigration attorneys, we chose Mr. Arutunian. He was very personable from the moment we spoke. I had dealt with attorneys in the past that do not come across as Mr. Arutunian does. He listens and reacts in the favor of his client. It was a very long process which caused us to have a lot of contact! I was most happy with the fact that we were ALWAYS contacted back in a timely manner... not ignored or a day or two later. In the end, Gevork pushed to get our paperwork thru faster and also made sure to follow up once our process was completed and my husband gained his entry to the USA. I SHOJLD also mention that we not only used Gevork for our USCIS Paperwork we rehired him for the NVC portion too. We were so pleased and will continue to use him when needed.
