Ricky Malik and team are amazing. They are not interested in collecting tons of money like others, but actually care about there clients. We tried to hire him to pursue my husbands legal status and instead of taking our money he said lets wait until the provisional waiver passes. We waited a year and when it was passed hired him. Mr. Malik and team made sure everything was in order and done correctly. He has helped my family so much!!! We will send anyone we can his way.

Stop wasting time and look no further - Ricky Malik is the best immigration attorney you can find!!! After 18 years long unsuccessful immigration proceedings, going from one immigration attorney to another and spending over $50 000 in attorneys and court fees, after exhausting all possible appeals - I met Ricky Malik who immediately struck me as a very knowledgeable, honest, compassionate and dedicated to his job attorney - unlike the cold blooded, uncaring and mainly money motivated attorneys I've met through all those years. I was at my last straw - I was in deportation proceedings and I had exhausted all possible court proceedings and appeals with only one last chance to file a motion to reopen my case. Despite my desperate situation, I felt comfortable and confident with Ricky Malik by my side and I was very impressed by his creativity and diligence. Ricky Malik did what other attorneys thought was impossible - he worked and fought hard on my case to remove the deportation proceedings and to obtain a permanent resident status after long 18 and a half years. I very strongly recommend Ricky Malik to anyone! And, based on my long and painful experience with the US Immigration system and meeting so many cold hearted, greedy immigration attorneys - I feel sorry for all immigrants who haven't met Ricky Malik and hired other immigration attorneys. If Ricky Malik can't help your case, no one else can!

I would highly recommend Ricky Malik and I would like to thank him by posting on this site. We had a terrible attorney working on my wife's immigration case before we met Ricky. We were dazed, confused, broke, and had gotten nowhere after two years. We decided to consult with another attorney because we felt horribly wrong about the path we were being led on. Ricky took the time to ask very pertinent questions that the other attorney neglected to ask. Ricky had a clear idea of the path we were to take before shoving a contract down our throats. We felt at ease with Ricky from the beginning and we were always informed of the next step just like clockwork. Ricky was always a phone call away. He never rushed us off the phone, instead he took the time to answer all our questions. Good luck finding a better attorney than Ricky Malik.

A former colleague and, now, personal friend, I fully endorse Ricky Malik. He is one of the most zealous, intelligent advocates a client can have in a field - immigration - that is known for its complexity and ever-changing landscape. It is easy to throw out accolades, but every positive thing written about Mr. Malik is true - I have witnessed it firsthand. He truly enjoys his job, and it shows in his thinking-out-of-the box approach. Northern Virginia is fortunate to count Mr. Malik as among its leading immigration attorneys.

Ricky Malik does not rest until the case is won. He is relentless in his pursuit of his Clients' rights - his well-deserved recognition in the Washington Post and national media for saving his client from imminent deportation is just one example of his dogged determination. Ricky combines a mastery of the law with a fighting spirit and the talent to win - a powerful combination. I recommend Ricky wholeheartedly.
