I met Attorney Shihab back in 2015. Not only he listened to my concerns, but he also gave me wonderful guidance that bring me to where I am at now. He was able to work with my weaknesses and strengths at the time.
My H1b was denied. However, with his experiences and great teams, they are able to help me with the PERM application. Everything is going great and I just found out that my PERM is approved. yeahhhh!
I know Attorney Shihab genuienly care about his clients. So, based on my experience, I would definetely recommend him!

Very good lawyer and very knowledgable. He helped me with my wife's immigration case and everything was handled by his team very well. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable immigration lawyer.

I cannot express enough how thankful I am that I chose Gus Shihab as our immigration lawyer! Gus Shihab went above and beyond for my husband and I. My husband, who is Yemeni, had a very complicated and extremely difficult case that was drawn out over a year long! Gus fought from all angles and thought out every move he made in great detail. His many years of experience is quite clear with his efficient strategies. Every question or concern I had was answered within minutes and I was always reassured. (Even when I emailed or called multiple times a day, I never was treated as nuisance.) Not only Gus do I thank, but also the members in his office who were more then helpful and knew me by name just from the sound of my voice. Shihab and Associates made me feel as if I was a friend, not just a client. Our battle was not easy, but I am finally reunited with the love of my life. This would not be possible if not for Gus Shihab. I highly recommend his services, trust me, you will not regret it.

My husband and I hired Gus a little over 3 years ago when my husband became stranded in India. He had been in the US on an H1B visa. We were married before he went back to India for his sister's wedding, but his visa expired while he was out of the country. Because of this, he was unable yo come home until he had a Green Card. We tried figuring out which documents needed to be submitted when, but realized if we sent the wrong document, or sent something at the wrong time...we could be denied, so I located Gus on this site based on his excellent reviews and experience.
Long story short, my husband was back in the US just 10 months later. This is at lowest month range for getting your restricted 2 year green card. In September, Gus' office contacted us because it was time to prepare the filing to remove the restrictions from my husband's Green Card and get his permanent resident status. After providing the documents he needed, my husband was approved with the first application (April, 2016) with no follow up documentation or interviews required!!
You always hear these awful horror stories of massive amounts of documents and interviews and rejections and appeals. We had NONE of that. I am just so happy that we had Gus and his team working for us! By the way...everyone on his staff is so nice and helpful. I was in there crying at times because I initially thought my husband would be home in weeks, not months. They were so kind and understanding. I can't say enough about them. Thank you so much Gus!

Mr. Shihab helped me on my H1B Renewal post 6 years and my PERM.
I had lost precious time under my previous attorney who filed my PERM twice (Once denied and once audited). My tight timeline generated lot of stress both personally and professionally. I am very thankful to Mr. Shihab in the manner he handled my case, sometime responding to my emails late night and occasionally even meeting me over the weekends. A through professional who works in the interest of his client.
I just heard from him that my PERM he filed 4 months back has been approved and he is proceeding with my I-140.
I would highly recommend his services.

Mr. Shihab came highly recommended by two separate parties who had availed of his services. I scheduled an appointment with him and found him professional and ethical.
Any doubts and questions were promptly answered by him and his competent staff.
After submitting the case to the USCIS there were no RFEs and all approvals happened in a timely manner one after the other, going by the processing times.
We requested his presence at the interview and I cannot stress more on the fact that the job was 70% done after that. He enjoys quite a reputation with the office due to his ethical history over the years.
Although my case was genuine, there were some cliched 'flags' which everyone talks about online, but none were raised thanks to Mr. Shihab's pre-interview prep and documentation requested.
10/10 would use his services in the future. Best of luck.

Mr. Shihab is the best lawyer in the US. He got my I-140 approved smoothly in 3 days and my I-485 approved in only 3 months with out getting RFE. Now I am waiting to receive my Green Card in the mail. Do not hesitate to hire this law firm. They are the best ever and they will be always there for you.

Mr. Shihab helped me and my husband on the I-485 petition and we got approved. Before we met Mr. Shihab, we filed once already and got denied due to complications and bad legal advice. Mr. Shihab carefully evaluated our case, and put together an insightful strategy that helped undo a lot of the damage from the previous filing. He is very knowledgeable and was able to leverage his substantial experience with immigration law to get us through the process.
He kept a very supportive and positive attitude at all times and was very responsive to all our questions and concerns. It was great having him during this stressful time. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for any legal assistance.

My husband and I retained the services of attorney Gus Shihab for an immigration process. I chose attorney Shihab online since I was travelling on business and was going to continue to be traveling for the following 6 months. I was concerned that our case would be difficult
due to my business activities and travels. Mr. Shihab was very pleasant to deal with, easy to get ahold of and was always timely with his responses and actions. He completed our case in a record time. We are very satisfied with his service and would recommend him highly. His firm uses an online case management portal which kept us abreast of our case at our convenience. This was important for me since I was on the go most of the time. Our cases got approved without any issues and in a record time.

I retained attorney Gus Shihab after my case appeared bleak and my hopes to remain in the United States were rapidly dwindling. Prior to hiring Mr. Shihab, I used another immigration attorney who wasted my time and money. Attorney Shihab was very honest from the first day I met him. He quickly told me that the prior applications that were filed on my behalf were a waste of time and that he would have never advised me to go down the road that I had gone with the previous lawyer. He immediately proposed a very innovative and aggressive course of action which gave me great hopes. After weeks of planning and very careful deliberation on the manner in which my case was drafted, success!! My immigrant visa was approved and I am getting my green card in few months. I want to stress that attorney Shihab had proposed an amazing course of action bypassing many steps that most attorneys would have gone through. The manner of his planning and persistence made it happen for me which was not expected in a short period of time. I am now able to stay with my family thanks to Mr. Shihab.
