My husband entered the country as an undocumented immigrant several years ago, and as any of you in a similar situation know, achieving permanent residency under those conditions is basically impossible.
Except we just did it--as a result of hiring Valerie, my husband's green card was approved.
Like a lot of the people in the comments below, Valerie signed off on all of our submissions to the federal government, but we worked directly with Allison to put together our 1-601 waiver application. USCIS has designed the process to be horrible, and it is, but Allison guided us through the entire journey and made an overwhelming undertaking completely manageable.
Our case was even more complicated than normal for a lot of reasons, but Allison was able to immediately answer all of my (many, pestering) questions and follow up on any information she didn't have directly at hand. We did most of the process by distance, but never felt at a disadvantage because of it.
I firmly believe that, because of the costs and time involved (even more now with the new administration), any immigration petition is something you want to get done correctly the first time. Valerie and Allison can accomplish that.

May Law Firm is an amazing an highly competent Firm that specializes in immigration. Our paralegal Allison walked us step by step thru the process and always made herself available to answer any questions my husband or I had during the process whether it be questions related to NVC process or questions related to the U.S. consular interview process.
I would highly recommend Attorney May and her team for any immigration case!

May Law Group is by far the most capable firm to handle any Immigration Issue. When my spouse and I got married, I knew it was going to be a challenge to get his 2 year home residency requirement waived. His home country had paid for 8 years of schooling (2 Bachelor's degree & 1 Master's degree), along with housing, allowance, etc. There was no way they were going to let him off the hook and remain in the US so easily. I performed an exhaustive search of different law groups & attorneys, and stumbled upon Valerie. We met with her and right off the bat, felt very comfortable with her knowledge & expertise in immigration law. They have a proven track record of producing approvals for two year home residency waivers! As we started the harrowing process of putting our application together, Valerie's paralegal/writer, Allison, was extremely helpful with the entire process. She always displayed the utmost professionalism and returned emails & phone calls in a timely manner. Her knowledge with the process and expert proficiency as a writer was so crucial in our waiver getting approved. There was no way that if my spouse and I decided to do this on our own, we would have received a favorable outcome. Both Valerie & Allison are a godsend! With their guidance, my spouse and I are able to remain together! They are the real deal!

We are extremely happy with May Law Group. Allison Rowland has been working with our case and she's amazing. Almost immediate response to emails or calls. Always makes herself available to us. My husband said many people got denied at the Mexican consulate in Juarez, regardless of their circumstances, so this isn't something you want to take lightly when choosing an immigration attorney. They really emphasize the importance of hardship on your case to make 100% sure you will get to reenter the county. You need a legit attorney. We are so happy we made the right choice with the May Law Group. So make a consultation today! good luck

From my first meeting with Valerie May to my follow-up conversations with her associates I was thoroughly impressed. Promises were delivered.
What more could I ask?

She is not into getting your money, but the ultimate goal of Valerie and her staff at the May Law Group (MLG) is success and your best interests as a client. This top-notch law firm has the unusual fortitude of taking formidable cases other immigration firms or lawyers would rather (politely) turn down. Mine and my wife’s are the instant and best example of the ones to cite. Yesterday, Valerie and her prominent staff members like Rachel, Beth, etc., I took the Oath to become as an American…needless to mention the process of my Green Card and my wife’s attained under Valerie’s meticulous work, research and among others.
The lawyers and paralegals at the MLG in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York City have excellent interpersonal skills and can develop trusting relationships with everyone they work with, particularly the clients. This legal team has undoubtedly excellent analytical skills and is able to readily make sense of, say in unusual cases. They love the art of preparing a legal strategy which usually requires an extensive amount of research in each case; and they are able to find and comprehend pertinent pieces of information. Too, they are able to think logically and make reasonable judgments and assumptions based on information presented. However, in cases that are hopelessly doomed, Valerie and her team can really be creative and are able to think of reasonable solutions when problems and unique situations arise.
The art of legal professionalism and perseverance are not only talked about at the MLG but more importantly practiced and accomplished. Often, cases require many hours of work with heavy research and lots of writing. But the MLG lawyers, paralegals and legal assistant are willing to put in the time it takes to get the job done. Each member of the MLG has excellent writing skills which are used in preparing compelling arguments, explanation of particular situations to questions/requests by the immigration officials, briefs, motions, and other legal documents. I can firmly attest to the fact that the MLG lawyers and paralegals have excellent public speaking skills and are comfortable addressing a courtroom. They can also easily handle speaking in front of other groups.
When all is said and done, if you have an immigration case, complex or otherwise, it is worth asking the MLG to handle it. In essence, travelling all the way from, say California, Texas, Illinois, Connecticut, Washington or Massachusetts to any of the three MLG offices (Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York City) will confidently lead to celebration and allow you to pursue your dream…I was in your shoes. But no more! I will enthusiastically recommend the MLG to anyone who is facing immigration difficulties.

They did an excellent job with our 601 waiver which was approved. Although Valerie was our attorney we interacted mainly with her paralegal, Alison, who was excellent. They are clearly very experienced, exceeded all of our expectations, and I never had trouble getting timely responses to any questions had. Highly recommend.

My husband and I has been looking for immigration for a long time. Thank God, she is the answer to our prayers. I was hopeless and not expecting that I will be a legal resident in this country. She is very honest, responsive and kept me informed from day one until I got my green card. Atty. May and her staff helped me a lot from waiver approval,I-30 petition and getting my green card. Now, I'm happy and worry-free living with my family. I am highly recommending Atty. Valerie May for your immigration problems.
