Posted by Rhesa
In 2012 we filed petition for I-751 me and my daughter but denied as I wasn't able to submit some of the required documents they needed. We were put in to removal proceedings. For 4 years I had all the nights of worrying we could be deported. We hired Atty. Shihab in December 2015 when I needed an immigration lawyer to help me and my daughter with removal proceedings. Atty. Shihab will treat you like a family, a warm person who would tell you everything will be fine, I remember once he told me to trust him and I did. I only attended one time for my court hearing with assurance from Atty. Shihab that my case will be closed and after few weeks we were called for interview from USCIS and got approval after 2 weeks my green card arrived shortly after. All the stressed and burden we were having for 4 years were all lifted out. I can never thank enough God, with a great and intelligent lawyer our case will never be successful. My husband and I were very happy we hired Atty. Shihab, my daughter is ready to go back to school again now that we got the perm gc.

It is not only my pleasure but also my obligation to recommend Ghassan (Gus) as one of the top immigration lawyers in the US. Gus and his team of excellent lawyers helped my husband and me through what would have otherwise been a nearly impossible, miserably painstaking immigration process. His invaluable expertise and generous compassion make him the perfect resource for couples and families seeking to immigrate with ease.
Let’s face it: immigrating to the US is NO easy task. The amount of paperwork, applications, and documentation involved is not only nerve-racking and exhaustive, but can sometimes make you feel like giving up!
This is exactly how my husband and I felt after we began our application for permanent residency. After completing the first steps of the application process, we were stumped by the instructions provided for the Affidavit of Support. We contacted the NVC time and again, but to no avail.
After months of frustration, we finally gave up. Months later, my mom contacted us recommending an immigration lawyer (Gus) she had heard of through a friend. All it took was one simple email stating our case and need for help, and we were swept off our feet by Gus and his group of highly professional and efficient lawyers. We were immediately impressed by their promptness and the transparency of their fees (all fees were stated up front and there were no hidden legal charges.)
After receiving the information necessary, Gus and his team took over the entire application process and completed it within no time. Today, my husband is the grateful owner of his very first immigration visa to the US, and we could not be happier!
We thank God for His blessings and for giving us the gift of comfort through Gus and his law firm. Gus: thank you to you and your lovely team for helping us through a stressful time of uncertainty and insecurity. We wish you all the best and hope you continue the great work you are doing in providing families better opportunities for the future. Thank you!

I would highly recommend Mr. Shihab for any immigration related cases. I was looking for an attorney to help me with applying for a green card through marriage. Mr. Shihab, along with all the staff, handled the case very professionally. I was impressed by how the entire process of paperwork collection and submission was organized. Almost all of the work was done online very conveniently and securely. Mr. Shihab's responses to all my questions were all timely and accurate as well. Everything was submitted correctly, and we went for the interview very well prepared by the attorney. I could not ask for anything more!

I presented Mr. Shihab with a very difficult citizenship case and he worked his magic. The first attorney I consulted did not want to take my case because he did not believe I had a chance to get my citizenship application approved. However, Mr. Shihab knew what type of documents to include with my application and I recently was notified that I had become a US citizen. I am very happy that I am now a citizen, and I thank Mr. Shihab and his staff for the great work that was done for my application.

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.
