I was referred to Jonathan through a friend and he was patient, helpful, and responsive from the beginning. The entire process took less than 2 weeks from consultation to receiving the package to present at the border. Jonathan provided expert guidance on the best TN category to use and how to best frame my roles and responsibilities. He was always available for my numerous questions whether in the office, on his cell, or even while he was traveling overseas. I would definitely use Jonathan'a services again and plan on referring him to those in my network. Thank you again!

My husband and I had a thoroughly positive experience going through the green card process with Jonathan and his team. They clearly communicated what we could expect, what they needed from us, and that we could rely on them for any questions we had. While this process is by no means easy or fun, Jonathan guided us through it with a sense of humor. He made himself available to speak on the phone even before we hired the firm, to answer preliminary questions we had. Jonathan and his team always thoroughly answered our questions within 24-48 hours, and assuaged our fears and anxieties. Our case was processed more quickly than we expected and thanks to Jonathan's directions there were no snags at all throughout. I can recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for representation in an immigration case. His experience is invaluable.

My family and I entrusted Jonathan with our permanent residency application, and we were not disappointed. Jonathan and his staff guided us through this complex process with clarity and ease, and were a pleasure to work with. Their upfront, flat fee was also very reasonable, especially given the excellent service provided. We are now permanent residents and would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan to family & friends, and to good strangers like you :)

Very fast in the response (replied out of office hours and in the weekend) and to the point. Professional but also nice and friendly. I would recommend him indeed.

I found Jonathan on Avvo. I was a little skeptical to use the recommendation, however after reading all the positive reviews I reached out. Jonathan personally returned my call within 24 hrs (to be honest I think it was the same day). We talked, I walked him through my general situation and described the couple of concerns and questions I had. Jonathan answered most of them on the spot, said he would have to look into the more detailed pieces. We decided to get together in his office for an initial consultation and determine a course of action.
We met, Jonathan was prepared with the questions I had brought up and introduced me to his team. I knew who I was working with, what we will have to do to get things done, what would be the general sequence and time frame - in hind sight Jonathan was spot on on all.
I really enjoyed working with Jonathan - he was always to the point, the information was presented in a thorough and succinct manner, potential challenges and hold ups were clearly outlined. That gave me a piece of mind and a clear understanding of what the process would involve. After the interview, there was a delay that made me a little nervous - Jonathan was very supportive, took his time to go through the different steps that could have led to the delay and what we could do if there were any complications - that left me having a plan at all times - priceless in my book. I have a pretty demanding business schedule and a lot of our conversations happened outside of business hours - a huge help, so I could sit, collect my thoughts and have a meaningful conversation.
I would definitely recommend Jonathan and his team - a special thank you to Calyn who was with me on a few occasions. Their process is straight forward, to the point, quite efficient and above all perfectly honest.

My wife and I first met Jonathan in January of 2015. We were getting ready to file our I-751 for "removal of conditions" on her temporary green card. Ours was a very complicated situation and we were very anxious about it. In our initial meeting Jonathan was very sympathetic and informative. Nothing abrasive about him. We knew we had a tough road ahead abut we came away from that session much more at ease and with a plan in place. We worked with Jonathan over the next 18 months..... recently receiving our approval. We had many questions throughout the process and Jonathan was always available with answers and advice. What we most appreciated was his honest approach. If you are looking for a empathetic and no BS counselor then Jonathan is your guy. If there are hurdles to conquer you will know them up front. No surprises! I highly recommend Jonathan. You will not be disappointed.

Seriously, I wish there were more stars.
You never know how real reviews are just like Amazon but now I know for sure these people were truly happy enough to write all these reviews. And don't be intimidated by his looks or his website. For my AOS thru marriage I was asked the same price as another getto law office in the Italian market neighborhood on which I inquired on.
I initially sent an email to Jonathan and received a phone call 30 sec later from him. Met him next day and shook hands after 10 min. The office was incredible and considering how professional they were I expected to pay at least 50% more what I was asked before. Nope! Same market price and flat rate... no matter what. I took over 2 years to prep my paperwork due to my own neglect, while they were babysitting me, sending reminders and emails every week. I would never spend that much time and charge that little money for my time.
Overall incredible experience, truly corporate and professional service by the entire company. And I forgot to mention, are you afraid of the interview day? Want to know what Jonathan was like? Imagine Hugh Hefner is your wingman and you're going to a playboy party.

If you live in PA, there is no better lawyer you can get for your immigration needs. Jonathan helped me get my Green Card and beared with us because of our complicated situation.
Jonathan and his assistant Calyn spent extra miles and held meeting and conferences after office hours with no hesitation as I work 8-5 and so does my wife.
I would never hesitate to hire him again and will always recommend him for all my family and friends who need immigration help!
Thank you Jonathan

When I knew I needed a lawyer for my case as a first step I went online to look for a high rated lawyer with excellent service, and wait and behold I found Jonathan, When I first met him he was really informative and explained everything in detail what strike me the most was his patience and understanding especially when you are worried, he also helped me to find a divorce lawyer even though it was not his job he went out of his way to help and provide an excellent service and help.
When I felt that my case got complicated he was always there for me to assure me that everything is well and my worrying is unnecessary, always make himself available to satisfy your need and will never turn you down even if it is after his working hours.
Jonathan from my point of view resembles what you would imagine in a perfect lawyer from ethics to professionalism I'm really happy that I chose him and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great lawyer.

Jonathan Grode is the most outstanding councilor in North America. Not only did he guide us through every single step of the process, he also made sure that everything was taken care of and all of our worries were relieved. He also attended the final interview which was very comforting. Immigrating to the U.S. was a huge life moment and the entire staff at Green and Spiegel treated it as such with all the time and care needed for a speedy and successful resolve. I could not recommend Jonathan Grode more - he is truly a super lawyer!
