Permanent resident to Citizen
I got referred to Ricky Malik from my brother. He helped my brother with his citizenship application and not only that but he also had helped my parents. I had somewhat of a complicated case when it comes down to filing for change of status to a citizen from permanent citizen. I had another attorney working on my case when I originally filed for my green card, and even then I was able to get Ricky's help and he told me exactly what the officer is going to say and what I need to do. I had a couple of those issues(I prefer not to talk about them) even when I filed for the citizenship and I decided to go with Ricky. The one thing I really like about him is that he does not judge you, he just helped me throughout my case and he was always ready with all the documentation. A few things that I would like to mention about him are that, he is always prepared, he got all of his files in order, and most likely he knows what the outcome is going to be. All in all he is one of the best attorneys that I had to work with and he not only is great at his work but also has an amazing personality and I would recommend him to anyone.

If you have any prior arrests, I recommend you hire Mr. Malik!
If you have any prior arrests, I recommend hiring Mr. Malik!!!! Ricky and his entire staff were crucial to the success of my application for citizenship! Detail oriented and thorough, they ushered me confidently into each step! I had prior arrests and went through the interviews with flying colors thanks to Ricky & staff preparing me to answer questions well in advance! Thank you, Mr. Malik, the experience was priceless!

My experience with mr. Malik
Mr. Malik has been a great lawyer. For many years Mr. Malik had processed my wife’s case. He successfully helped my wife achieve the goals she had for her case. Years later I have been able to achieve my goals with the help of Mr. Malik. Mr. Malik is organized, professional, and very knowledgeable.

N-400
After searching for a couple of attorneys and discussing my case with them, they offered no hope to my case. I remember two of the attorneys I reached out to suggested a departure in order not to accrue more unlawful presence. I was confused, worried and scared, then I researched and reached out to Attorney Malik and we had initial consultation and He agreed to take up my both cases and offered some legal advise and suggestions. I also read his high profile case he handle against the government some years back and that made me believe in his competence. I remember He told me that in his many years of practice, He is yet to come across a case where such application would be denied as a result of overstay. Cutting a long story short, he took up my case and by the Grace of God I have received favorable response for one of the cases in less than six months. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Ricky Malik P.C to anyone in need of immigration legal services. They are professional and good at what they do. Highly recommended.

Help with residency
I don't have enough positive words for Mr. Malik and his firm. As soon as we contracted Mr. Malik, he got to work and stopped my husband departure/deportation that was already in process. Mr. Malik was able to have my husband receive an adjustment of status with permanent residency. The process of having my husband return to his country of Guatemala was a little daunting. With the help Mr. Malik's fantastic work and words of encouragement we made it! My husband just received his Residency card in the mail. We look forward to a bright future for our family. Thank you for all the work you do! -- Ana and Victor Esquivel
