Jonathan Grode and his team are extremely helpful. From the moment I reached out for a consultation until my case's resolution Jonathan demonstrated a professionalism and diligence that you rarely find in people in any field. I honestly felt lucky to have run across such person in my time of need. I would recommend Jonathan to anybody dealing with a complicated case and where other lawyers have just given you run around, I can rest assure you Jonathan would be very honest and upfront with you and will tell you everything about your case. Our case was not simple and had a lot of complications however Jonathan was able to solve each and every problem as our case progressed and in the end I was able to get my status issue resolved. Jonathan walked me through every step of the process and I felt well informed. He set proper expectations. Hopefully I never have to use a law firm again however if I do I will be contacting him again and I know I am in good hands.

Jonathan was awesome from the get go. He was very reassuring and was always there to answer my questions when I needed him to. He was a great coach and extraordinarily helpful through my whole case. He made getting my TN visa an absolute breeze and I felt confident submitting the application that him and his team put together for me. Before submitting, Jonathan called to prepare me for any questions or extra information that might be requested of me. He talked me through my own list of concerns which put my mind at ease when going to the border. Jonathan is friendly, knowledgable and genuinely wants to see you succeed. I highly recommend Jonathan as an immigration lawyer.

Jonathan is a very experienced lawyer with great knowledge about the immigration system.
He helped me with preparation of my E-2 Visa application - and guided me through all of the tasks required to apply. And during the process he answered all of the questions I threw his way in a very patient manner.
I'll definitely go back to Jonathan when/if I need help with immigration advice again.

I worked with Mr. Grode from 2010 as I was transitioning from J-1 to H1-B, right up until 2015 when I was successful in obtaining my Greencard through the NIW EB-2 category. Throughout he was phenomenal. He always made time for my case, was clear in his explanations and recommendations, and cautiously conservative, which ultimately resulted in my case being successful far sooner than I ever could have imagined. I would highly recommend him. Speaking with friends and colleagues who worked with other immigration attorneys, none of their experiences came close to this.

I had a very sensitive case, therefore I was very cautious about the attorney I was going to hire. I begin my search and met with seven different attorneys and of course paid consultation fee to each of them. After spending lots of time and money I was finally recommended to Mr. Jonathan Grode. I knew he was the perfect person to hire when I noticed he wasn't treating me as 'another case', but rather as someone who really needed his help! Mr. Grode is defently one of the best attorneys in the country & with his knowledge and expertise I was able to fix a situation that had taken me 25 years in just 17 months! I highly recommend attorney Jonathan Grode!

My partner (Canadian) and I (American) were highly referred to Jonathan Grode's practice, Green and Spiegel, LLC, from a previous client of his who happened to be my partner's best friend. We had spoke to a couple different lawyers previously about our immigration options and had yet to come across anyone who seemed open, honest and gave us a warm and fuzzy feeling. All of that changed when we had our first consultation with Jonathan about our potential case and we both knew after that phone call we were definitely hiring Jonathan for our immigration needs and services. The moment we knew he was meant to be our lawyer was before he professionally went into details about our many different options, he paused and made a note to say congratulations you two on finding your soul mates, as that is the reason for this call and why you're here, so that you can eventually be and live together. That was a game changer right there. I loved that he personally recognized that in us before we even began hearing about the details, and that made it a great conversation and put all of us on the same page. It made us feel special, comfortable and so happy.
Once we began our case work, Jonathan gave us a time frame of up to one year for completion. What is amazing is we actually completed our goal in 11 months! The service we received from Jonathan and his team was excellent and he made us feel like we were his only clients, which is very hard to do when we know he has many different and numerous clients. And I am very confident he makes all of his clients feel that way. I really feel Jonathan got to know us personally, as we did him, and was always making sure our case was moving along in a timely manner. Any time either of us had questions or were confused about any little detail (which happened a lot), Jonathan was right there either sending us an email within that same day or initiating a conference call to walk us through details and the process in a very relaxed way. He was very patient, understanding and extremely empathetic to our unique situation, and we loved that added personal value he provided to us. He always made us feel at ease when we would have anxieties about the case work or process, and the confidence he had in us is also a quality we really appreciated.
I can't stress enough the time sensitive nature of our case; not only did my partner and I look forward to the day we would no longer have any more departure days and be able to live together every day, but so did Jonathan, and he created that same enthusiasm and urgency within his team. Any time we would pass a milestone in our case, Jonathan would be the first one to be cheering us on and being so incredibly happy for us. It made the journey all that more special to be able to celebrate along the way and to have him as our cheerleader. The urgency, enthusiasm, devotion, friendship and care he entrusted in our case was amazing and completely unexpected. We had no idea what a special service we were going to receive from Jonathan and his team, and are so incredibly grateful and appreciative that we did. It changed the entire process for us and I would absolutely recommend Jonathan and his firm for anyone who is looking for immigration needs and services.
Thank you Jonathan and team for making our journey and case so special! We loved working and celebrating together on this!!

Jonathan turned a very challenging visa situation into a total win, within 3 weeks, after I had churned through at least 3 prior lawyers. His team got into action within 48 hours of hearing my case, were extremely detail oriented, asked great questions, and got the job over the finish line. These guys are amazing!!!

I hired Jonathan and his team to apply for the Green Card. After consulting other lawyers I was scare about all the time and money that I had to dedicate to this process. Following the advice of two friends I decided to hire him and his staff. This was one of my best decisions of my live. One year later after starting my application I have my Green Card. They were always very professional, efficient, patient and most importantly they save me a lot of time and money. I truly recommend Jonathan and his team.

Finding a lawyer is easy, finding a good one is hard, finding an excellent one is almost impossible. Jonathan is an excellent lawyer for many reasons but my biggest reason for saying this is his honesty. From my first meeting till the last he has never miss led me and always been supportive and friendly. I highly recommend Jonathan and his support staff.
