Its my pleasure to write a review for Ms. Amy Novick. I had a major immigration problem in the airport when I came to the US for the second time from India. I was given a stay of one month in the US from the airport authorities. My girl friend was a US citizen but we did not know how to proceed with the case. We consulted numerous lawyers. Most of them asked us to go back to India and file papers from there. We were very confused and worried. We did not know how to tackle this situation. We heard good things about Ms. Amy from online searches. The office was kind enough to schedule an emergency appointment with her. Though we spent more than hour discussing about our case, she still charged us for one hour. This is in contrast to some lawyers who could not even spare us anytime to discuss the case and were charging for just a call on the phone. When we met her for the first time, she was very thorough with the immigration laws. She did not give us any false hopes or promises. She treated my girlfriend as her own daughter and advised our family what she would do if she was in our place instead. She did an outstanding job from the very beginning to the end of the case. We are getting married soon and this is happening mostly because of Ms. Novick.
I wanted to write, and thank you for all your help. Starting from the initial advice, to taking us through the process, your guidance has brought us to this happy conclusion. We are both thrilled, as is the whole family.
Thank you, very very much.

I've worked with Amy on two matters. The first was a petition for adjustment of status for my husband. It was relatively straightforward, but it was obviously of the utmost importance to us, and I (myself an attorney) was nervous. Amy's calm competence did wonders for my state of mind. She was highly responsive and addressed all of our questions. The insights she shared ensured that we sailed smoothly through the process. The second matter was a complex H-1B visa application for the Executive Director of a nonprofit organization. I am the President of the Board, and as soon as the issue came up, I knew that we would have to take it to Amy. She was terrific. She did the research needed to figure out how to best position our application, and she was a source of good advice throughout. I have no doubt that our petition was granted because of her fine work. I have already recommended her to others, and I will continue to do so.
