I interviewed a dozen attorneys and Mr. Wali Raheen stood out from the rest. Mr. Raheen took care of my case with Professionalism, he is honest and takes pride in his craft. Throughout the process, he was always communicating with me and making sure that I was up to date with everything on my case. I had a Judgement against me and it was a very stressful time for me and my family. With with his help, they dropped it completely. I don't know how to thank Mr. Raheen. I would recommend him to everyone. He is an excellent Attorney!

Knowledgeable, responsive, and highly competent
My wife and I came to Wali after we had become concerned that the previous lawyer we had hired for our green card case was often not so responsive when we had questions over email. We scheduled several consultations with him, during which he always was able to give us the information we needed and help us along the process in a way that was knowledgeable, friendly, and understanding. After a few such consultations, we decided to make a switch and have Wali represent us in the case. We ended up being very glad we did so: Wali and the Raheen Law Group was fully available for any questions or concerns we had, and made us feel very at ease during the process leading up to the interview and the interview itself. He told us just what to expect, what documents would make a good package, and ensured that all those documents were printed out and assembled for us on the day of the interview. Furthermore, he did this coming into the case halfway through; thus requiring them to work more quickly than if they had been our lawyers the whole time. As a result of the preparation we did with Wali, we had no trouble getting the green card. My wife and I would certainly recommend the Raheen Law Group, as well as hire them again.

Highly Recommend!!
We’ve worked with a few immigration lawyers in the past and we were really just fed up and felt hopeless- that was all until we found Raheen Law Group. They really take their cases seriously and care for their clients. We can’t thank you all enough for all the hard work and hours you put in. We’re extremely happy with the positive outcome of our case. Thank you!

Very Professional and Knowledgeable
Mr. Raheen and his team are very professional. They are always available to answer any question regarding your case. Mr.Raheen is very knowledgeable. He tries his best to cut the costs to minimum. I am calling specifically on Afghan community if you face any legal issue so he is the best one to handle it. The whole team are so responsive. Mr. Raheen very easily catches the problem. He has a great knowledge of back home rules and laws as well.

Very knowledgeable and accessible attorney
We hired Mr. Raheen for a spousal petition (green card and then citizenship). He did such a great job that we rehired him for the second part of the matter. He and his team are very accessible, knowledgeable, and work hard to achieve the clients' desired results. Mr. Raheen also has great connections and a great work ethic. We recommend him to others in the Northern Virginia area.

Best advisor and lawyer!!
Mr Raheen has been my family lawyer and always had time from his pre occupied schedule to listen to my cases! Either its immigration or anything else.. if you come to Mr Raheen.. you just forget your problems.. he is very reasonable and genuine! Neither would he suggest nor would he would himself do anything thats not right! Best thing is when your lawyer listens to you and then suggests you best and safest ways to deal with it.. and thats Mr Raheen! Thanku for being there sir!

Successful USCIS Case
Wali Raheen is a very personable lawyer with excellent knowledge of US Immigration Laws. He handled my case with professionalism and we achieved the desired outcome on the first try. I will definitely consider hiring Wali again if I have a future legal need and will recommend him to others.

Dr. Raheen assisted my husband and me to obtain the Green Card. It was a difficult case and his knowledge and professionalism was instrumental in the approval of the request in record time.

Very Friendly Attorney...Thanks
I talked with Syed about a pending custody case, he took his time to understand the issues of the case and suggested few things for me to do. His advice was greatly appreicated and he didn't charge any consultation fee. He definately would be one of the top choices to represent me.

Excellent immigration attorney
I hired Mr. Raheen for my brother citizenship case. My brother has sever disability due to his brain damage. Mr. Raheen was very helpful through out the process, and help my brother to obtain his citizenship.

Bringing my spouse to US
It was my first time hiring lawyering for immigration purpose. Mr. Raheen and his team are professional, supportive and responsive. He makes sure gives his clients updates about their case via email, phone call, and reminds them of what document is needed and when. The faster clients hand him docs the faster work processes. With confidence he handles immigration case and will fight for it till the end. I already referred and will refer him to any who needs a honest, practical, caring attorney in their case. Most importantly during this time bind, since everyone is so busy, barely get time off to meet their lawyers, Mr Raheen and his team love to accommodate clients with their work schedule. That is an A PLUS!
