Decent man - great service
We worked with Adam for a number of years on our case and can't say a single unfavorable word about his work. From the very first meeting Adam kept us most well informed about potential outcomes of the process, we've always had a clear view of the situation we're in or are going into. All potential ways of handling our case were explained with the most transparency. Adam's most striking virtue is - not often found in his field - honesty, which we value highly on top of his excellent skills as an attorney. We've never felt being played or treated any shady way. Even if our friends with similar cases reported rather different updates on current laws and regulations from their lawyers, it always turned out that Adam's advice and view were correct and well-tuned. I don't know what your case is and where are you heading with your immigration process, but I assure you Adam Solow is a man to get you through it. I'd like to also thank Adam and his team for what they did for us. We'll always be thankful and remember what a wonderful people you are.

Adam & the firm are a truly committed team. High recommend.
My family & I discovered Adam's firm as they went above and beyond to reach out in my community. Entrusting the firm was a great experience while they managed two of our family members residency. Communication was constant, my expectations were met and what was expected of us was clear. Adam and his team handled our cases like the true professionals they are.

Best immigration attorney you can find!
Adam is an exceptional attorney. I have worked with him for several years now since I first applied for a green card, later when removing conditions of my green card and finally my citizenship 5 years later. Adam is very knowledgeable, professional and understands the immigration system very well. I cannot thank him enough for all of his help over the years. I HIGHLY recommend Adam as an immigration attorney. If you are shopping for an attorney, he should be your guy!

Excellent attorney
Adam Solow helped me and my husband file a marriage-based adjustment of status application. Throughout the process, Adam was extremely helpful, clear, and accessible. In our initial consultation, he laid out all of my options clearly. (He was also nice and friendly, which was important to me and which I hadn't found in other top lawyers I'd consulted with.) He made it very easy for me to collect documents and send them to him and his paralegal to prepare/compile. He responded to all of my emails quickly, usually within minutes, and made the application process as smooth as possible. I also requested an additional in-person meeting with him, which he was very flexible about. The whole process was stress-free and easy for me and my husband thanks to Adam's work. In the end, my green card application was approved within 4.5 months of filing with no hiccups along the way. I plan to recommend Adam and his firm to anyone in Philadelphia in need of an immigration attorney.

Citizenship success
I had my case handled by Adam and his assistant Jessica, and they were so great helping me get my US citizenship. My husband and I are so grateful that we hired Adam. He is a great, trustworthy lawyer. Always there for you answering emails and any concerns. He really does what is best for his clients. I wouldn’t recommend any other office to handle an immigration case.

Adam was amazing to work with. He and his staff helped to make the very convoluted and difficult immigration process a breeze. I am confident that without his work my wife and I would still be struggling to get through the process.

Thank You, Adam!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Adam Solow for his professionalism, thorough knowledge about the immigration laws, patience with my emails and calls throughout the day, and knowing and caring about my case. Adam is extremely nice and it is obvious that he practices immigration law because he genuinely cares about his clients. He knew about my life story in detail, just as much as I do. I would highly recommend Adam Solow to anyone who is looking not just for an outstanding immigration lawyer who would get the job done, but also someone you would like to have on your team and can count on. Also, many thanks to Christina and Lisa with filling out the documents in a precise and timely manner and Alba and Jessica for making sure Adam got my messages. Thank you ALL!

Great lawyer. Adam helped me a lot in my case where me and my wife were living apart but still legally married and planning to get back together. He helped me remove the condition on my residency. I can’t thank him enough for all the work and effort he puts in.

Great Lawyer for Immigration
Working with Adam was a great experience. He's easy to communicate, prompt, honest and concise. His assistance, Nancy, which I had the pleasure to work with was indeed very helpful in writing the affirmation. I received my GC through my marriage which unfortunately ended up to divorce before renewing my GC after 2 years. I hired Adam for the renewal process and removing the condition. I'm an Iranian and was very nervous about the process and I'm very happy that chose him for my unique case. Totally recommend him.

Very Knowledgeable and Experienced Lawyer in Philly
I hired Adam as my attorney for i-751 case which was pending for more than 30 months. He is very knowledgeable and experienced. He suggested me few options when I was not getting any response from USCIS. He helped me a lot in my case and I got it approved after 30 months. I would definitely recommend him.
