Best Law firm I have ever worked with
I was referred to Marcia and her practice for some help with Immigration and USCIS. Our case was a little complex and Marcia grasped the details quickly and accurately. She provided a course of action and recommendations to get us to where we needed to be....and it worked perfectly! She was NEVER pushy and did not use the complexity of the case as a reason to increase charges. He billing is extremely fair, she is honest and will also advise you where you don't need to spend money which was phenomenal to us! She has a fantastic team of very experienced lawyers and the entire team takes away so much stress from what otherwise would have been a horrendous process for us. I would highly recommend Marcia to anybody that is seeking the best in business.

Marcia fights in court like a bulldog. She was always well prepared and the breadth of her experience is extraordinary. Her office staff is exceptionally courteous and supportive. If you hire Marcia you will not regret it.

Excellent
Though the immigration law courts are a confusing, muddled and often inexplicable system, Marcia does a great job of explaining and clearing up any questions or confusing points that you may have. I hired her and was impressed with her persistence and dedication to my case, often presenting me with multiple routes and options that could be pursued and valuing my opinion, not just doing as she pleased. Marcia and her firm did a great job with my case and though it's still ongoing, I have no doubt she will continue to show the same dedication she has in the past, now going forward.

Immigration change of status
Marcia Ibrahim and her office worked diligently behind the scenes to getting my husbands change of status completed. She was very informative on the law and what needs to be handed in before our interview and made sure we were prepared. Even when immigration would want more documents to prove my husbands legal ways of coming in the country, she would work with us on a one to one and made sure we handed his proof of documents and any documents needed on time. Her staff also came in on their days off to make sure we handed in the documents on time especially if we missed the date/s required to. I definitely would recommend Marcia Ibrahim and her office staff.

Quick Divorce with Marcia after going pro se
I attempted to represent myself in Philadelphia Family Court. What did I want you ask? To get divorced from my ex. I tried to do it on my own, but after three years of wading through the muddled waters of family court, I was no closer to being single than I was on day one. After Marcia began representing me, it only took a few months to obtain my divorce! I can breathe again knowing I am no longer tied to my ex and it is thanks to Marcia that it didn't take another three years to happen. I'd recommend Maria because she cuts to the point and is no nonsense. I should have gone to her to begin with.

Excellent Legal Advice!
I can’t recommend and endorse the Law Office of Marcia Binder Ibrahim, LLC enough. The firm provided personalized service and advice that was above and beyond and I can’t thank them enough.

Good results for difficult case.
We were referred to MBI by a friend of ours who had also been a client of MBI and felt that their services were quite well done. Our specific problem involved obtaining a U.S. visa for our foreign born adopted child which, for a variety reasons, was not easily obtained. MBI accepted our case with the stated possibility that success was not assured and that many difficulties needed to be overcome. As each of several difficulties arose during the application for this visa and prior to its issuance Ms. Ibrahim continued to meet each problem with resourcefulness and enthusiasm, which eventually resulted in success. Despite MBI’s continued efforts on our behalf, over a period of several years, Ms. Ibrahim’s efforts were expended judiciously, using paralegals where possible, and the overall charge presented to us was quite reasonable. In the long run the results speak much louder than the interim activities and in this case the results were nothing less than 100% satisfactory.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
I highly recommend Marcia Ibrahim and her partner Gregory Eck. I had a complicated divorce case which I doubt another law office could have handled. Not only did Ms. Ibrahim communicate openly with me every step of the way, her partner Gregory Eck went above and beyond my expectations to ensure the success of my case. Ms. Ibrahim knows the system. She is a savvy attorney who will give you an accurate assessment of your legal options. I felt confident having her by my side in court. I cannot speak highly enough of her legal caliber. She was very hands on with my case and kept track of the details. Hiring Ms. Ibrahim was like hiring two excellent attorneys for the price of one. Her partner Mr. Eck overcame a very complicated legal situation with aplomb. I highly recommend this law office.

Successful Immigration for Marriage Help
Having been single for over 40 years, I never would have guessed there could be any major legal issues to getting married. Now I know otherwise. We took our problems to Attorney Ibrahim early this summer (2011) and she immediately laid out our winning game plan. Timing was vital in our case. from our first meeting the Attorney guided us to a successful closed case within 5 months! My wife and I carefully followed every step, consulting with the attorney whenever we had questions, and we won our immigration case a few weeks before Christmas. Ours was a blessed holiday, my wife’s first in America. We are so pleased with the quality of her work that we have Attorney Ibrahim on retainer for a future matter. My wife and I have already recommended this firm to our close friends

I recommend Ms. Ibrahim
I am satisfied with the seriousness with which Marcia handled our case. She showed absolute knowledge of the task at hand and committed herself to it 100%. This office performed all tasks in a timely manner. I am absolutely thrilled with the result and would most certainly recommend her to others.

Life Changing Experience
My experience with this firm has been a blessing and a life changing experience for me and my sons. After spending over 10 years and employing 3 immigration firms for my immigration matters, I was told my case was hopeless and nothing can be done about my situation. One day after speaking to a series of people, I was put in touch with an immigration judge who referred me to call the Law Office of Marcia Binder Ibrahim. This shows that the firm is highly regarded and is known for their positive results. I am happy that I made the decision to work with this firm. They did not rest until all of the information was gathered, the right people were spoken to, and every available resource and avenue of legal means was investigated. This firm always made sure I understood everything that was going on and they walked me through every step of the immigration process. Marcia was always extremely honest with me and told me the probability of success for each action taken. This firm worked diligently to get everything done in the shortest amount of time to get my case settled. I can honestly say that this firm was dedicated to my case, and they cared on a personal level about what I was going through and what would happen to me and my family in the future. I am more than happy with the results of my case. I just knew that when this firmed worked to get my case resolved that I would come out on top. I am very pleased with the work and effort they put into my case. I would definitely recommend this firm to a friend. I just know that whomever I recommended would be pleased not only with the firm’s work ethic and determination to get work done, but the proven results that they get.

Best decision to hire an attorney like Marcia!
I got married and moved from Canada to the United States in 2007. I was an Canadian citizen and we thought the process of immigration would be easy and so we didn’t get a lawyer. For 3 years nothing was accomplished [working on our own without an attorney] and I had a hard time to get in the States every time I visited my kids in Canada. In 2010 we went to Marcia and 7 months later I had my greencard. Marcia Ibraim knew what she was doing. She was friendly and responsible. I was happy with the result of the case and I would absolutely recommend her.

Good results with a difficult case
We gave Marcia a very difficult and time consuming case. My husband had a heart attack while being detained. Marcia was able to fight and keep him out of prison. She filed forms, fought with USCIS, and came with us to appointments. She rushed my citizenship through for me. We are now coming to what we hope is the end of this nonsense and can visit England and come back legally! No matter how difficult our case was, Marcia never gave up. I keep saying that Marcia is like a pit-bull that sinks its teeth into something and never gives up, that is how determined she is. We are extremely satisfied with the result of our case. We had a lawyer before Marcia that got paid and did nothing. Thank God for Marcia and Greg. I have already recommended Marcia to my friends and family and will continue to do so. I cannot thank the Law Office of Marcia Binder Ibrahim enough.

We want to THANK YOU for all your help during the immigration process. My wife looks forward to reuniting with her family and see her brother and sister whom she has not seen for 10 years. Working with you was a pleasure. Again, thank you very much.

Very knowledgeable
Everyone is always helpful and friendly. Marcia is always available with answers to any questions I have. Her experience and enthusiasm for her career shows every time I meet with her. I’m very glad she is taking care of this case. I’m not worried about the results of this case because… I trust her to continue handling this case.

WONDERFUL Immigration Attorney
There are not enough words to thank you for your miraculous work in solving my immigration nightmare. Since 2001 you worked very diligently to help me, my husband, and my three children to overcome various obstacles, and at the end of this terrible nightmare your succeeded in securing permanent residency for my family. I will never forget all the hard work you displayed when you went to JFK Airport Immigration Center to allow me to enter the United States of America without having to be detained at an immigration prison.
