I highly recommend Monica for anyone looking for legal representation when filing their EB2-NIW petition. Monica is kind, prompt, knowledgeable and very professional. In 01/2015 I received my RFE and later on, when I was looking for an immigration lawyer I was enough lucky to be referred to Monica by a friend. During the first consultation meeting, all steps were well described along with expectations from both parties making the entire process transparent and very easy to understand. On top of that, her legal service were very affordable and confidently ended up hiring her. She lived up to its promises and provided all documents and monthly follow-up requests to USCIS well within the time frame specified. I was pleasantly surprised by the attention given to details in representing my petition including the accuracy and the effort put into writing up a concise and strong legal argument document of twelve pages. Likewise, thanks to the help and honest advice on improving my credentials from Monica, my RFE response consisted of 600 pages and my EB2 was approved without any more issue within 6 months. Monica, you're a real life-saver, I am forever grateful...there is no other attorney as good and as honest as you are. Thanks so much!

My partner and I got married in June in PA after they legalized same-sex marriages. Monica helped us with my adjustment of status. She explained us the procedure and what to expect at each step of application. They informed us of the documents to present and prepared our application package. They made sure that we did not miss any of the documents. Although my partner and I had to spend some extra time with the corrections on the forms; in the end, everything was well prepared and done in a timely manner. She replied our questions swiftly and always kept us in the loop. As our case was really obvious and straight-forward, we did not have any problems throughout the process. She also prepared us for our interview on the phone and primed us as to how an interview takes place. All in all, there were no trouble whatsoever in our application and I got approved. Therefore, I would recommend Monica without a second thought.

Monica had her work cut out for her. I had a terrible experience with a previous lawyer and was left with doubt and more questions. Monica spent the time necessary to educate my family and give me the confidence to pursue our case. Monica made sure we knew the facts, ALL of the facts, even the tough-to-swallow tidbits. So far, so good... Our case is moving through the system in our favor. I would recommend Monica to anyone.

Monica is an excellent and highly effective immigration attorney. I frequently turn to her for advice on various immigration issues, particularly pertaining to business immigration. She has an excellent reputation both amongst her colleagues in the Philadelphia legal community and amongst the various immigration-related government agencies.
