We were recommended to contact Jennifer Varughese for a personal immigration matter from a family friend. After contacting her we had no doubt that she has immense knowledge in US Immigration law. Not only she guided and advised us regarding our immigration matter professionally but she handled our case with successful results. We were kept informed of all actions and progress through emails, mails and phone calls. It was never hard to reach her and she replied our questions promptly.
Recently I contacted her again for another immigration matter and was again impressed by her professionalism, honesty, and empathy with clients. Matters of Immigration can make anyone feel stressed, and lost at times due to complexities but look no further and contact Jennifer Varughese for all your immigration questions and cases.

I found Jennifer a few years ago regarding an immigration matter that I thought had no hope. Jennifer was the first lawyer that listened to my situation before asking if I wanted to come in for an appointment. I had consulted more than 30 lawyers by this time, and they all required that I come in for a formal appointment before I can speak more than one sentence. I knew right from then that she would be the right lawyer and advocate for my case. And I was right! Over the next few years, she prepared, argued and won my case. And most recently, I finally became a citizen of the United States, as I've wanted for many years. If I have not found her, I may not be where I am today. Her knowledge, thorough preparation and representation as my attorney helped me achive my ultimate goal. I will be forever thankful.
Not only did she help me with my immigration issue, she also helped one of my family members. Again, she demonstrated her extensive knowledge in immigration law, prepared thoroughly, argued and won the case.
I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone that needs an immigration attorney due to her expertise, attention to detail and ability to understand your situation and build a case that is most appropriate for a potentially favorable outcome. I believe Jennifer will continue to be successful, and she will make an impact to future immigration laws that may evolve.

I highly endorse Ms. Varughese. She is a knowledgeable and experienced immigration law attorney who will fight to obtain the best possible results for her clients. I recommend Ms. Varughese to anyone seeking counsel in Virginia for immigration law matters.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I work on matters involving the intersection of criminal and immigration law. I also speak at conferences in Virginia on the importance of knowing immigration consequences in criminal matters. When the criminal case is resolved I do not hesitate to send clients to Ms. Varughese - she is among the top immigration lawyers in Virginia - detailed, knowledgeable and meticulous in her work. I highly recommend her.
