The service from Jason Karavias, Esq. was extra-ordinary. He pays great attention to every little detail and rectifies anything that needs rectified accordingly.

HIRE ATTORNEY JASON KARAVIAS
Hiring Attorney Jason has been one of the best moves I've done in a long time. My wife and I have been waiting 4 long years for the USCIS to schedule us for an interview for my wife's greencard. We also let Attorney Jason know that we only had 4 months before my wife and I will need to travel internationally..so a greencard will be a great help when my wife needs comes back to the USA. Attorney Jason said he will do his best and got to work right away. Seven days before our flight, my wife got her greencard over the mail and we didn't have to go through an interview. Thank you Attorney. Hope you and your family have a great holiday. Everyone, hire this man for all your immigration needs. His service is worth every penny.

Green Card
We contacted Jason and arranged an initial meeting and Jason explained our options. Once we decided on the path to proceed, Jason guided us through the whole process and attended our interview. The Green Card process is quite complex, with many forms to fill in and a lot of personal data and documents to also gather and submit. Jason also provided a list of medical facilities for the Green Card medical examination. The whole process went smoothly for us, and after completing the Green Card process, I couldn't imagine it being done without the assistance and guidance of a good attorney, and I have no hesitation in recommending Jason for your immigration requirements.

Attorney Jason Karavias - Excellent Attorney
We recently retained Attorney Karavias to handle a petition for changing the immigration status of a relative. He handled our case flawlessly from the beginning to the end. He was knowledgeable, thorough, detailed, timely and caring in providing instructions for our preparation of information and documents, responding to our questions and concerns, and conducting ourselves properly in the interview with USCIS. Our petition was expeditiously approved by USCIS. We were very happy with the results. He is one of the best immigration attorneys whom we have known in the United States. We recommend him strongly without reservations.

Definitely recommend!
Jason is the most responsive lawyer I’ve ever met. Text/Email him any day and time you’ll get your response in a short period of time. Jason has everything structured and planned so your work is minimal. I really recommend Jason, he helped us so much with our i-130, i-485 case and kept us updated throughout the process until everything was taken care of. I definitely recommend him!

Marriage-based AOS
Having second thoughts about another offer, we decided to hire Jason, because he provided an clear, informative consultation and reasonable rates. Jason is an excellent attorney who believes in over-preparing applications. He guided us through the entire process and was on top of any development in the case. We plan on working with Jason in the future, should the need arise, and recommend him without reservation.

Greencard after Divorce
Jason helped me to remove the conditions of my Greencard after getting divorced. I did most of my Greencard legal work by myself but after the divorce I felt like I’d need a lawyer to guide me through. He did a fantastic job by explaining the process and all the steps that were needed in a simple way. Based on my experience with him I’d highly recommend him.

We contacted Jason in April and by November my wife had her green card. More than that, Jason was patient and walked us through the process and participated in our interview. Jason is a caring lawyer who has helped us with my wife's path to citizenship. We will use Jason for all of our immigration needs. We recommend you do too. Thanks Jason for all you do!

Marriage-based AOS application
Jason is a reliable and knowledgeable immigration attorney that helped me get my green card in less than a year of me coming to New York from Australia. We sought an immigration attorney to help with our adjustment of status process during the Covid pandemic and stumbled across Jason online. It was our first time retaining a lawyer however our experience was seamless and extremely pleasant as he was responsive throughout the entire process, was always available to answer our questions in detail by explaining anything that wasn’t clear to us for us to better understand the AOS process and was there with us all the way to the end until the day of the interview. I know that I wouldn’t have been able to receive my green card this soon if it wasn’t for his help. We thank him tremendously and recommend Jason to anyone seeking an immigration attorney to handle their case.

Incredible Knowledge
I’ve been living in the US for 5 years now and consulted with countless immigration attorneys (trust me, it becomes an exhausting process!). Thankfully I found Jason and gave it a try. He was not only the most knowledgeable but also extremely helpful and on point. I’m happy to recommend him to any of my friends!

From Immigrant to Citizen.
I highly recommend Mr. Karavias’s service. He is the best lawyer in PA. I spend more than three months looking for a lawyer before hiring Mr. Karavias. I have been working with him for more than three years now. Here are some of the reasons I chose Mr. Karavias’s services for: He is professional, honest, straightforward, personable, reliable, patient, helpful, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable of the laws. He is super affordable comparing to other firms, He is very responsive (via email, phone calls, and even text messages). I would trust and recommend him to anyone. Thank you very much for all your help, I do appreciate it.

Highly recommend.
We filed an adjustment of status for my spouse and our case was not straight forward, particularly given the pandemic and changes in federal policies. Jason was extremely responsive, well-organized and knowledgeable about the process. We were especially impressed with his attention to detail and extensive experience.

Fantastic lawyer. Knows what he is doing.
Jason is a fantastic lawyer. He really pulls through for you! He helped me get my permanent resident card. There's so much paperwork involved and so many documents you have to provide but Jason helped us thoroughly. From the very beginning, he told us EXACTLY what we needed. Pay attention. He told us EXACTLY what we needed and EXACTLY what we needed to do. We followed exactly and we came through. We highly recommend Jason as an immigration attorney because he knows exactly what he is doing. Do everything he tells you and I don't see how you could go wrong with him. This was our experience with him. God bless you Mr. Karavias! If you need immigration help, contact him and he'll tell you what to do.
