Very professional and understanding
Sharon helped my wife and I through the process of acquiring her green card and moving back to the USA. She was always very helpful when we had questions and was willing to put in extra time to find answers for our specific case. We had a great experience using her services and plan to use her services again in two years when we have to reapply for the next step.

Responsive, Thorough, and Effective
Sharon handled a very difficult separation, divorce and custody case spanning over two years in length. She was always clear with my options, consistent with looking out for my best interests, and effective in the courtroom and judges chambers. I felt as though I was always heard, and then guided towards the best strategy, especially when emotions were high for myself. I highly recommend Sharon for family law matters.

True professional from the beginning to the end
Sharon took care of my I-90 application. From the very first inquiry, Sharon was always timely to respond back. Whenever I reached out to her with questions, I received her answer within a day. I was told to expect to wait for a year to receive my Green card. Because of Sharon's professional, complete, thorough approach to my case, my card was issued within less than three months from the time the application was submitted.
