Great experience, extremely satisfied
My wife and I were extremely satisfied with immigration attorney Somair Alam. We worked with Somair and he handled my case for first getting an H1B, then helped my wife and I with our Green Card applications and finally aided with our naturalization. Somair was great to work with, gave us clear guidelines and schedules, he explained the whole process in detail and everything went as expected with no surprises or delays. Somair also represented us at our naturalization interview. I would strongly recommend Somair Alam to anyone looking for an immigration attorney.

Professional and Dedicated Attorney
Last December, I needed help processing a green card for my nephew who was immigrating from Pakistan. I chose to work with Mr. Alam after my initial consultation with him. Mr. Alam was very welcoming and demonstrated a high level of knowledge and professionalism. He answered all of my questions with genuine attentiveness and attention to detail. Over the months, Mr. Alam guided me through the process and kept me fully informed of the process with a series of emails. Mr. Alam handled my case extremely well and ultimately got my nephew the green card. I strongly recommend him to anyone seeking help with immigration.
