I went to Ana in 2013 trying to get my American residence, and since the begging she was not very, very nice but very effective, I got my residence 6 months after we sent the papers to immigration. It was very nice how she kept me inform always and available every time I needed her.

After been denied by the uscis to a permanent resident status for fraud and misrepresentation and be put on removal procedure, I lost hope to stay with my family.
My case was very difficult and complicated.
After learning my homework from my previous mistake, I decide to chose a very experimented attorney to defend my case.
After contacting several lawyers, a professor of law referred me to Mrs Ana Zigel.
At our firs meeting, she impressed me and my wife by her acknowledge of the immigration law amd her honesty by telling us that my case is very difficult but there is a change.
During all the processus , she was always available for my questions and concerns.
And the most important is she understood my fear and she help me regain confidence.
Until the last second of my judgement , I was afraid to be separate with my kids and wife.
But, she was optimistic and she was right.
I really don't know how to thank her.
But I believe she is the best immigration attorney in us.

I went through 5 lawyers until I found Ana. I was in deportation court because I went back home through an approved parol papers while waiting for my green card. To make my story short, all those previous lawyers told me that I didn't follow the rules/regulations from immigration and that I don't have a choice but to go back home since I can't prove it to the court that my leaving this country can cause extreme hardship to my American citizen immediate family. Ana thought outside the box and beyond and find ways to extend my court date until immigration finally agreed that those applicants that went out of the country through an approved parol should be allowed to stay here and be given green card if they are in good standing with the law. Ana became more than a lawyer to me. I felt like she was my therapist when I was on my lowest point of my life. She listened and gave me hope and at the same time she was realistic. I owe Ana my green card!
