An excellent choice
She took care of my case. It has been hard and long years to get my green card. Every time I had to send additional papers or renew something, she took care of them perfectly. Plus, I called her for advice many times. Her advice was very thorough and helpful. I would definitely consider her if anyone needs an immigration attorney.

My I-601
My world came crashing in April when I got an inadmissible letter from uscis for an I-485 that I have submitted 2017, attended 4 interviews with my husband, we had 2 kids, everything was suppose to be fine and quick but it kept dragging, then the red letter day and I was devastated and the thought of loss was overwhelming but God led me to Claudine Harrison she listened to my story and devoted time to my numerous calls even at odds hours she was dedicated and kind, she put a strong case together and left no stone unturned and 3month later the inadmissible clause was removed and my I-485 was approved. I got a ten years permanent green card . God will continue to bless the Claudine Harrison chamber and crown all their cases with success.

Great lawyer & Great communication with clients
Ms. Harrison was very helpful in regards to my court case. Her communication with me during my case was very consistent and she would always call,text, or email me at her earliest convenience. I was lucky to have a lawyer like Ms. Harrison who was able to get the job done. She got my case dismisses. Thanks again!

A attorney that cared
I was arrested on felonious charges. My road to proving my innocence was unpredictable and dark, but God shined a guiding Light in the form of Claudine Harrison. She was very personable, very professional. she worked diligently and got my case dismissed shortly after. If you want someone to fight for you, I highly recommend Claudine Eleanor Harrison.

Not enough Stars
I would love to start off by saying there are not enough stars here to rate Ms. Harrison. She is incredibly knowledgeable of the process and has her eye open to keep you in the know of what’s to come. She is very resourceful and pleasant to work with. She has truly become a part of our family and should honestly charge more. I loved working with her and would do so in the future if need be.

Diligent, Persistent and Caring
Claudine Harrison was my attorney in a very difficult immigration case that could have easily not gone in my favor. She did her research, compiled evidence and got the deportation order vacated. She then worked with us to turn the entire situation around to gain Permanent Residency. We were kept informed throughout the process with updates at every stage until the final resolution. I would recommend her to anyone seeking the services of an immigration lawyer.

Excellent Attorney -> Exceeded Already High Expectations
Claudine quickly and efficiently helped my small company navigate a Visa need for a new employee. For the most part our company was flying blind, unaware of where to begin, and Claudine quickly and efficiently helped us (1) understand our options, (2)gave us a fair quote, and (3) guided us through the process entire process until Visa fulfillment. Claudine was great to work with and I would 100% recommend Claudine for your immigration legal needs.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"When Claudine took on a challenging pro bono case for Catholic Charities, she was not content to do any less than her best, even though she was not being paid one red cent. She reached out to other lawyers to be sure she was presenting the case as well as possible. Without violating confidentiality, we discussed some of the issues. I was thrilled to learn recently that the case has been approved. Claudine's commitment to her clients is evident, and I am happy to have her as a colleague."
