Mr
Thank you for your passion, dedication and professionalism. I've hired lawyers before, but you really are the best I've ever worked with. Thank you so much! I can't tell you how much I appreciate the incredible legal work you did for my daughter's visa case. What we have not been able to achieve in 4 years you have achieved in 4 months. I recommend anyone out there looking for a professional immigration lawyer.

Dynamic Experience
Mrs. Lawrence took on our case for spousal visa in January of 2020. Throughout the entire process it was communicated what our next steps would be. We were able to ask questions and our face to face meetings before the pandemic were instrumental in helping us feel confident and taken care of knowing that we did not have to prove our case alone. The team exercise clear communication when requesting forms and notifying us each step of the way. We are happy to share that as of May 2021 our green card has ben received and we can't thank the entire team enough for their professionalism and support throughout this journey.

APPLICATION FOR CHANGE OF STATUS
A family friend referred my wife and me to Lawyer Elizabeth in June 2019 when I wanted to file for permanent residence and change of status from B1. She was very articulate about all the documents we needed to provide and also about the immigration process and timeline. We filed and USCIS received our case on July 3rd, 2019 EAD was approved in December 2019 Notice to appear for interview in March 2020 Interview rescheduled due to COVID restrictions Interview rescheduled again for September 16, 2020 The case was approved and I received my Permanent Resident Card in the mail 10 days later. Lawyer Elizabeth was super helpful every step of the way as she prepared us for the interview and I would recommend anyone who needs immigration assistance and lawful guidance should contact her immediately. Thanks, Lawyer Elizabeth!!!

The one you need!
In 2018, I brought my immigration matter to Elizabeth, she was with me all throughout from the start to finish. Even to the point I did not receive my work authorization in the mail, she was the one sending several applications to USCIS, making necessary phone calls untill I finally received it.Elizabeth is so experienced to the point that when she prepared my husband and I for the interview, everything we went over was what was asked in the interview. Please dont hesitate to hire her to help you with your immigration matter, her professionalism and expertise is on 100%.

Awesome Representation
Attorney came recommended to me from a trusted attorney. From the first day I met with her I felt her understanding and willingness to do all that she'd could do to help me secure my green card. She traveled by train from Maryland to Virginia each time my case was scheduled. She was always punctual and prepared for court. She contacted me when I was being tardy in sending her the necessary documents, and promptly sent them off as soon as she received them. Attorney Lawrence made me feel as if my case was the most important thing she had to do. She was always encouraging and encouraging. I would definitely recommend Attorney Lawrence to my friends and family.

She is the Best!
A Elizabeth Lawrence is the BEST Immigration Attorney out there! I hired her for my Adjustment of Status application. Her ability to professionally set out the right expectations from the beginning was the deal breaker...I instantly knew I was in perfect hands. She kept me informed and offered timely and excellent services until approval. Her professionalism, "can do" spirit, ability to navigate troubled waters, empathy and dedication set her miles ahead of the packs. Hire her and thank me later!
