About Grace

Learn Grace’s areas of practice.

1
Practice area

The same tenacity and determination that fueled Grace to triumph in law school against extreme odds is the same tenacity and determination that she commits to every case she represents.
 
Grace is the “little train that could.” While pregnant with two of her three children, Grace worked full time during the day and went to law school at night. In 2000 she graduated from law school with honors and passed the California Bar in the same year.
 
Such singular focus and attention to detail are strengthened by her solicitude and individualized practice. Grace values each client’s distinct but equally significant needs, as well as unique but equally vital perspectives. By nature cheerful and compassionate, she builds relationships, not just a business. She partners with each client to approach each concern with straight answers, individually tailored solutions and uncompromising standards.
 
This client-centered representation is balanced by Grace’s keen understanding of the real-life complexities of immigration practice. Her experience, creativity and diligence make her your ideal immigration counsel.

5 ⭐️ service!!!
Atty. Grace is a real joy to work with. She is highly skilled, who is an expert in her line of work. She is knowledgeable and always has answers to questions. She addresses concerns and issues quickly and efficiently. She gives her 100% attention to her clients, and treats them with respect and dignity. What I like most about her is how she makes her clients feel at ease dealing with her because of her warmth and pleasant personality. I will not hesitate to refer her to my relatives and friends because of her professional and personal capabilities.

Amazing Atty Grace
My husband and I had been navigating the complexities of obtaining permanent resident status in the US for what felt like an eternity. We had worked with several immigration consultants and lawyers, each promising results but failing to deliver. That all changed when we found Atty Grace. Atty Grace isn't just an immigration lawyer, she provides hope and expertise in a field filled with uncertainty. From our first meeting, Atty Grace impressed us with her professionalism, compassion, and unwavering dedication to our case. Unlike others we had encountered, Atty Grace took the time to truly understand our situation, addressing our concerns with empathy. Throughout the process, she remained a steadfast ally, guiding us through every step. She kept us informed and empowered at every turn. In just 16 months, thanks to Atty Grace's help and guidance, we received our permanent resident card. If you're seeking immigration assistance, look no further than Atty Grace. She's a true advocate, a compassionate ally, and a genuine pleasure to work with. Thank you, Atty Grace, for making our dream a reality. We can't recommend you highly enough.

Strong and honest
I’ve been going to different immigration lawyers in NYC area about my very implicated immigration case . I spent thousands of my hard earn money in different law firms and individual lawyers, most of them just needs your money but they did not done anything on my case. After moving to VA few years back I searched a law firm called Grace Esnardo. After schuleding the appointment with Grace, she told me that she needs to study my case first then she will tell me that if she can take my case or not. In my first meeting with Grace I found Grace is very honest person. Because I have all experience dealing with different lawyers. After couple of days she called and agreed that she will give a shot. She tried very hard and it took us six years to get approval in my i-485. But in those six years Grace was standing right next to me. I will never forget in my life what Grace has done for me . I strongly recommend to those who are fighting in immigration problems that you should hire Grace Esnardo as their attorney. Thank you Grace for all your help. Your friend Abbas will be there with you all the time.

SUCCESS!
I had hesitated at obtaining a lawyer for my case due to financial reason. Sure there are immigration firms that are affordable but you wouldn't know the extent of their services. Grace is so worthy of her fees and more! She was very approachable and prompt to response to my inquiries and clarifications. Her guidance, especially what your privileges are as soon as you file, are so precious that you feel secure the entire process. You only need to follow her advise and instructions and pray as you go along. I still feel privileged and giddy every time I think back to my adjustment of status case. My green card (family-based) was approved without interview! That is really something! The journey took more than a year and the delay was mostly to my not being able to provide all the docs upon filing. Still, the work permit and travel parole came at a reasonable time. The experience made me a firm believer of good representation. I felt that with an exceptional firm backing your application up, your case will be given a better evaluation. I look forward to getting her services again after two years to sponsor my family. So blessed to have known Grace!

Excellent Immigration Lawyer
Atty. Grace Esnardo was my lawyer from I filed for my Greencard until I recently got my Citizenship. She is the best lawyer and a wonderful person. She is an angel sent by God. She helped us save a lot of money with the Greencard application and the N400 form. Whenever you have a question or need clarification, she will answer your question promptly. During my Citizenship interview, I was so nervous but with presence of Atty. Grace Esnardo, everything went smoothly. Her presence made a big difference. I am very pleased with her service. I highly recommend her service to all people who need immigration assistance.

I do recommend Grace, she is just 5 stars.
When she started work with my case was super complicated because I had a deportation order already, Grace was able to remove all the deportation proceedings, then she put me in track again, is the best immigration lawyer that I know, I really appreciate all that she did for me and my family, I do recommend her for a good results in your case.

The best immigration lawyer I have ever meet!
I don’t even know where to start, this women has been a blessing sent by God!!! I’m a single parent and for a while life was definitely kicking my butt, She is amazing, I had a complicated case and Multiple times I felt defeated, had tried numerous immigration attorneys until I came across Grace she is the sweetest person, honest, trustworthy and has years of experience and told me exactly what would happen every step of the way and how we would handle the situation! Since our first phone call I immediately felt relieved. it’s been a couple year now since I’ve worked with her and all I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart, if it wasn’t for all your help my child and I wouldn’t be in such a better place! By far the best immigration lawyer I have ever met!

Green Card through Marriage
Grace is the best lawyer I have encountered. She is professional and prompt. We went over my paperwork, ans she put it all together and submitted in less than 3 weeks after I got married. She is very responsive to messages and calls. She has a bubbly personality, and very easy to work with. My brother had previously hired her, and went I went in for my consultation, I knew she was the right person. Her prices are more than affordable, and she doesn't nickled-and-dime you like most lawyers to be honest. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an immigration lawyer out there!!

Helped me and my wife be together today
I am an Engineer. I do not know legal specifics at all and it's obviously serious business. And thankfully Grace had been here to help us this whole time and answers all our questions to this day and knows what we need to do, and explains each item in proper straight forward way. Couldn't have found a better lawyer. Thank You Grace!!!!

The best lawyer for a difficult case
I took a difficult immigration case to Grace and from the fist day she understood took on the challenge and was willing to help me thru the process of obtaining my Permanent Residencie in this country. Her experience and knowledge of the immigration laws help me get thru the aplicación, evidence request, interview and waivers until I was able to obtain my status of PERMANENT RESIDENT. In my case I found a good person and the best immigration lawyer to help me with my case. If anyone need a immigration lawyer I highly recommend Grace.

My lawyer review
A co-worker recommended her to me regarding my immigration status, and I contacted her right away. I was worried I would not get immigration approval, but she responded and helped me so much with my case throughout the process until everything was taken care of and the happy outcome I have hoped for. She is a good lawyer, very professional, helpful, friendly, and always available to speak with me. I am very grateful for the help I received from her. Thank you so much for everything. She is someone highly recommended. I will continue to use her services for anything I need.
