A+ Emigration Lawyer!!
April provided me with a first class emigration law service that got me legal working status in the USA. She is very efficient, courtious, and professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing her service!

April is really knowledgeable, caring, and professional.
April helped my wife and I filing my Adjustment of Status application. April is very knowledgeable about immigration law and conveys information in a precise way. She is always willing to explain each step of the process and helped with all my questions. As someone who wants to know how things work in detail, It felt great to have April not only filing the paperwork but helping me understand the logic behind each step of the process. As an international graduate student in the US I've found that quite often international advisers at the university can give you incomplete or inaccurate information. That is why I really appreciated April's expertise and professionalism. April is willing to answer questions that go beyond the paperwork. She clearly understand how important is for the client, especially for a person like myself, to be involved in the process instead of having someone just doing things for you without you knowing what's going on.

Excellent Immigration Lawyer
April is incredibly professional and competent, and her in-depth knowledge of the immigration process has made bearable what could have been a very painful process. Being able to maintain absolute professionalism whilst making the process very personal, is a skill not perfected by many, but this is exactly what she has been able to do. She has been sure to answer all of our questions promptly, thereby putting out minds at rest. As serious as immigration is, I don’t believe that we could have been any better served than we have been by April, who instilled well-founded confidence every step of the way. My son and I have been permanent residents for almost a year and a half, and my daughter has just had her green card interview with USCIS, all of which is in the competent hands of April Cockerham.
