I have been a client of Glinsmann Immigration in Gaithersburg MD for the last five years. They helped me file for my permanent residency (green card) in 2016. Recently, I completed my naturalization interview and oath ceremony, becoming a US citizen in 2021. Matthew Glinsmann’s team was a critical part of this entire long process.
Over these five years, I worked extensively with Matthew Glinsmann, Karla Alonso, Jimena Alfaro, Gabriella Harrison, and more recently Sarah. All of them are highly professional, very competent, and great at their jobs! Before we started each step, we were informed clearly and in writing about the fee structure, the boundaries of Mr. Glinsmann’s role, and our rights and responsibilities. Once we got started with any step, the Glinsmann Team made sure that every line of every immigration form was addressed, and that my spouse and I understood exactly what was going on at all times (neither of us have any legal background). They made sure that all documentation was very thoroughly prepared for filings and interviews. Everything was done well before any deadlines, and they would contact us with reminders for important deadlines and milestones. We had in-person meetings before every filing and interview till 2020. By 2020, we had even moved out of Maryland. That did not change anything with respect to the Glinsmann team’s handling of our case. During the covid shutdown in 2020, our meetings switched to Zoom, without losing their thoroughness and effectiveness. In the end, both my interviews (green card and now naturalization) were very straightforward and easy, in large part because the Team had all the required documents, records, and case history prepared, and had thoroughly prepared us for what to expect during the actual interviews.
The last couple of years have clearly been challenging for US immigration overall. There were sudden changes in rules and procedures, as well as shut-downs and delays in USCIS processing due to the covid-19 global pandemic. Matthew Glinsmann and his team gave us the confidence that we would get through our immigration process even under these circumstances.
Lastly, I would like to say that all our interactions with Matthew, Karla, Gabriella, Jimena, and Sarah were very friendly and positive, without exception. There was a very friendly and reassuring environment during all conversations. They always answered when we called (sometimes even with basic questions), and always remembered our case history and details even over a period of years. This was always very reassuring. In summary, I would whole-heartedly recommend working with Glinsmann Immigration!
