Best professional lawyer ever
When I came to Ms Beach, I was in removal proceeding and completely hopeless I believe my case was one of the most desperate cases. I was recomeded her by a dear friend whom Ms Beach had also helped on her case. I immediately drove about 500 miles to meet with her. When I submitted it to Danielle Beach, I had just got in contact with her office and I didn't have any idea of her competence as an immigration lawyer, but the words of my friend I hired her at that moment. I returned home hoping i had made a good desicion. Danielle Beach and her whole team handled my case delicately, piece by piece, step by step. Under the heavy stress of the difficult case I was going through, I felt like giving up, But Danielle Beach's office treated me respectfully and become my friends helping me to keep going and not to give up. Everything changed positively very quickely. I got my first work authority. Today, I am a permanent resident of the United States and hope to soon become a lawful USA citizen. I have every reasons to be proud of Danielle Beach's services. I strongly recommend Beach-Oswald services to people who are in need of immigration assistance. She is truly an outstanding lawyer and friend.

Professional & Knowledgeable & Gets Results!
I want to thank Danielle and all the lawyers at BOILA who helped us with our immigration case! From the start they were honest, fair, straightforward, and knowledgeable. They comforted us with this difficult and scary process. They were always there to answer our questions and concerns and they were very reassuring that we would be fine. And they were right! On Wednesday we went to our green card interview and we were recommended for approval! We are so happy and we thank BOILA so much!

Job well done through due processes
My sister hired the services of Danielle Beach for her Asylum case in Maryland. When I read the original manuscript I knew it was going to be a difficult case. However the Danielle Beach firm systematically, deligently and professionally worked with my sister day and night, through Emails, phone calls, text messages and office meetings to present her case in a manner beyond reasonable doubt. The process took years, during which all available necessary evidences were obtained, witnesses well-educated and due proccess was followed. Today Wednesday 20th March 2024, my sister was granted asylum. All praise, glory honor and adoration be onto Jesus Christ our Lord amen.

Ms Chika
I retained Ms. Danielle back in 2017 for my VAWA case and tirelessly through many hoops, RFEs and countless responses, my GC got approved in Feb 2024. Way to start the year. All through the process she literally carried through making sure we were addressing each concern so to not allow any room for multiple follow ups. I want to especially thank the paralegal Haroni for her extreme professionalism. The entire staff at Beach-Oswald ensures all my questions were answers and worried addressed. Can’t thank them enough for finally we got victory.

Danielle Beach: An Antidote to Immigration Limbo
Basking in the glories of the recent silver linings of an endless array of untrammeled successes in unlocking thousands of Ambazonians embroiled in immigration limbo, I got a photo with Danielle Beach after one of those cases where I stood by as an expert witness. With a law firm strategically located at the nerve center of Washington, DC, this indefatigable woman has been finding the pulse of immigration cases cast into the doldrum because of the backlog, resuscitating them and winning the most challenging to the incredulity of most of her colleagues who will dare not set an eye on those cases nine yards away. Thousands of Ambazonians now have within their reach a pie of the American dream, initially considered a forlorn hope by many, thanks to the astute intervention of this iconic legal luminary. And she has done that with exceeding finesse, style, and above all, an irreproachable work ethic, all desirable traits Ambazonians are enamored of considering the persecutions they suffered in the hands of a rapacious Cameroonian regime. She is much of a legend around the Washington DC metro area as she has devoted her career to searching for the most challenging immigration cases to be resolved and asylum granted to be gotten. The successes are in the zillion; some have pointed out that it would take a sophisticated computational system with a reliable storage capacity to hold the incalculable successes of this great woman in one place. I bet they can say that again! Unfazed by the inherent risks and distance yet emboldened by an unyielding passion for a pragmatics pursuit of justice, she has undertaken the labyrinthine journey to Cameroon on numerous occasions to have a firm grasp of the contextual reality the people of Ambazonia are contending with. Against this backdrop, she is supremely positioned to effusively speak to the issues affecting Ambazonians with a rare streak of mastery, honesty, and authenticity. This disposition invariably makes her interpretation of the law unmatched by many of her competitors, who are undoubtedly divorced from the issues at par and lack her intellectual sophistication, clairvoyance, and assiduousness. But even more, her irresistible propensity to keep up with recent developments and current immigration law scholarship is a bonus that Ambazonians continue to leverage to regularize their status in the United States. For example, she was the first Immigration Attorney to unravel the implications of the designation of Cameroon as a beneficiary of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) by the Department of Homeland Security to a needy Ambazonian populace. From the foregoing, describing this great woman as an antidote to immigration limbo is legally justified and supremely deserved! She deserves an induction to the Ambazonian Hall of Fame.

Excellence at its best
I saw attorney Danielle Beach many many years ago and I have not forgotten her. I didnot write a review then and now have decided to give her one. I have looked to the West, East, North and South and have never met an attorney who goes into it to win. Period. For many attorneys, number 1 they are looking for how much they can make out of you and number 2 , you are just another file/ case number. At Ms. Beach’ s office, everyone is operating in excellence, from the paralegals to the receptionist to the attorneys. She promotes a sprit of excellence and professionalism. No one like her . Period.

Am very grateful
I filed my l-485, l-130 etc myself and was asked for evidences for both applications. I filed the Requests for Evidence (RFEs) myself and my case was denied afterwards. Then I hired BOILA and they filed l-290B for me and my case was reopened after 4 months. I was issued with Employment Authorization Document. My initial interview was scheduled 4 months after. Ms Danielle Beach prepared us and accompanied us to the interview in Baltimore. It was a huge success. My l-485 and l-130 were both approved same day before we got home. I greatly appreciate the entire BOILA team.

C’est un privilege pour moi de recommander Me Danielle Beach-Oswald a tous ceux qui ont un probleme d'immigration et qui cherchent un avocat ou une avocate avec une très bonne expérience en matière d’immigration et qui va vous traiter avec considération et professionnalisme. J’avais été référée chez Me Danielle Beach-Oswald par une connaissance. Mon dossier de Naturalization semblait vraiment compliqué. J’ai été accueillie par une équipe qui non seulement pouvait communiquer en Français, mais était aussi très dynamique. Son assistante legal Rosie m’a beaucoup aidé. a passer ce text. Me. Beach-Oswald m’a beaucoup encouragée et a mis du sérieux dans mon dossier. Elle est toujours disponible pour répondre aux appels et aux emails et si jamais elle ratait votre appel , elle s’assurait de retourner votre appel. Elle a un sens du professionalisme. Elle m’a très bien préparée aux questions d’interview , Je suis allée avec elle à l’interview et tout s’est bien passé. Je suis devenue citoyenne Américaine grâce au bon travail de Maître Danielle Beach-Oswald et son équipe. Je suis très reconnaissante et j’encourage toute personne à contacter Maître Danielle Beach-Oswald pour tout dossier de l’immigratigration.

"Danielle is a spectacular immigration attorney who deserves every point of that 10.0 rating. Her care for her clients and her respect for fellow counsel is nothing short of outstanding. She is thorough, knowledgeable, experienced, and makes time for her clients. The list of important decisions she has garnered is a testament to her dedication to the practice of immigration law and her care for immigrants and their familys. I unequivocally endorse her and recommend her to anyone seeking immigration counsel in DC (or elsewhere for that matter)."

"I've known Danielle professionally for many years. She has tirelessly represented immigrants from many parts of the world. She is well known among her peers and is a keen advocate for noncitizens who are in removal proceedings. I have associated with Danielle in legislative-related matters proving her concern is not only executing laws related to her clients, but shaping them as well. I have also worked with Danielle in Maryland driver's license policy issues. I would highly recommend her for your immigration needs."
