John is not only an excellent lawyer but also a great friend who always available when you have a question or concern. If he accepts your case you can be quite confident that your application will go through successfully. I will stay in touch with him and strongly recommend him to my friends and relatives.

My wife and I started our immigration journey 3 years ago when I came here on a b2 visa on our own without a lawyer which was clearly a mistake. A few months down the line, we were faced with a problem and needed a waiver. We had no idea what to do and who to trust with our problem. We went to a law firm that we found online, and after working with them for a few months, we were ripped off and our case was still denied. A friend of ours referred us to Mr Vandenberg who we decided to work with. We were totally surprised with the knowledge and professionalism that he treated us with. Throughout our case he kept in touch constantly and met with us occasionally to review information. Even the staff at his office are so well trained and so courteous that it was always a pleasure meeting the whole team. Long story short, he worked with us and just a few weeks ago we had our interview and have finally been approved. :-) My family and I are Christians and prayed a lot throughout our journey. Johns professionalism and knowledge is amazing and I would say with confidence, that he is thus far the Best aim migration Atorrney out here in PA.

John is definitely the BEST Immigration lawyer that my husband and i have met. My husband and i met with other lawyers before meeting with John and i can tell you that we regret this to this day. He is very professional and knowlegeable. Everyone in his office is also very friendly and professional. John is a good man who truly cares about his clients and their immigration issues. He really went above and beyond to make sure that my husbands case was approved. Words cannot describe how much my husband and I appreciate him, he just truly AWESOME. I will definitely RECOMMEND him because i know he can make your immigration dreams come true!!

FULL DISCLOSURE: I consider John a friend, as well as a colleague. I can endorse this attorney from a different perspective. Many of his endorsers are his contemporaries, or even younger lawyers which in no way diminishes the worth of their praise and esteem. I've known John from his Law School days,while serving as an Officer in the local AILA Chapter. I've seen him develop from a law student with a deep interest in immigration law, though young lawyer working for his clients and actively participating in Bar events through to the Partner in the respected immigration law firm that he is today. He now serves the local Immigration Bar as an Officer in our Immigration lawyers association. John is an intelligent, compassionate and creative attorney and nice guy.. Thus, no surprise for the high regard which he has rightfully earned. I am relatively new to this AVVO, about a month (generational, I guess), or I would have given this high endorsement much sooner than today.
