Thanks to Gus and his diligence now I have the US citizenship.
From the outset, he identified some of the key issues in the case that could have been a major roadblock including the 90 day residence issue. I was then given a strategy to prove the 90 day presence using hard evidence.
As we then prepared to file my application, I used his online portal to capture data for my application. The data was then thoroughly reviewed and the application was then prepared and filed with the utmost levels of professional standards. He then kept me informed throughout the process timely about any communications from the government.
Finally, he identified the softest issue in the application process and devised a response which proved strong at the time of the interview.
My case required a high degree of legal competence and the tools he employed helped in the positive outcome.

Gus was very effective getting my applications through all the required processes. He is very meticulous, detail oriented and timely. He and his team followed all the necessary steps, never missed deadlines, expedited the procedures and made sure everything submitted was perfect down to the smallest detail. Gus is wonderful not only as a professional but also as a friend and coach, makes the psychological factor of going through the applications much easier and less stressful. In summary, a great lawyer and individual.

I retained the services of Attorney Shihab twice. My case was challenging from the get go due to complex corporate structure my business. I found Attorney Gus Shihab to be exceptionally competent, timely, pleasant and honest. He was able to pool all the various business professionals who worked on my business including om corporate lawyers, to economists and business partners and made it happen. I just received approval for my second extension and could not be happier. I also recommended my brother to retain his services for a separate business and Attorney Gus Shihab was able to secure an E-2 visa for him as well.

Our company is working exclusively with Shihab Law for five years. The results are impressive for all our H-1B, L-1A and Employment Based Immigrant petitions. For myself, Shihab's office handled my initial L-1A application so i can establish the first branch of our USA expansion. Later on Shihab's office extended my L-1A and then handled my Employment Based Immigrant Visa application too which concluded with receiving my green card in a very reasonable timeline considering COVID impact. I have the first hand experience working with Mr Shihab and his excellent team. During the course of five years Shibab law gained our full confidence, in respect with their deep knowledge of the immigration laws, their clear understanding about USCIS's implementation of those laws, their excellent communication with USCIS offices, their strong work ethic and forthcoming approach. I frankly admit that we made a mistake once trying to work with another firm for petitions seemed low hanging fruits then ended up in disaster. Shihab Law is competitive but not cheap although worth every penny you spent especially when negative results maybe life changing and costly for your company. I strongly recommend Shihab Law.

Me and my wife have worked with Attorney Gus Shihab and his associates for our green cards and other immigration needs over a decade. He and his whole staff are very friendly and professional and treated us like family. Attorney Gus Shihab is probably one of the best immigration attorney in the country and you can trust him completely with all your immigration needs. We could not have been happier for him to represent us in our immigration process and we highly recommend him.

My wife and I hired attorney Shihab to file suit against the USCIS after they denied her citizenship application. To our shock the USCIS claimed that my wife’s green card was issued in error. She was a beneficiary on my employment based green card. USCIS alleged that my wife was not in valid status when she filed her derivative I-485 due to the fact that she was waiting on a project while on H-1B visa with her own employer. Mr. Shihab sued and filed a complaint against the USCIS in Federal Court in Virginia. To our amazement, the USCIS worked with Attorney Shihab and reissued my wife’s green card. Now the green card has been properly issued, the case was dismissed and settled with the USCIS. We will be applying for naturalization using Mr. Shihab’s firm. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Shihab was attentive, competent and guided us for the interview and responses to the USCIS. We truly consider him a friend.
We highly recommend him and his team for your immigration issues.

Mr. Shihab saved me from deportation due to a felony conviction. My case was very complicated, but Mr. Shihab was fully on top of all the details. At the hearings before the immigration judge, Mr. Shihab exemplified what it means to be a top tier advocate. He was very knowledgeable of the law, and appealed to a sense of justice that led to a favorable ruling. He is an excellent lawyer.

I worked with Gus Shihab Law Firm to represent my wife's green card petition followed with consular processing. Attorney and team members are very knowledgeable, and responded to all my questions via email in a timely manner. They made sure all the petitions were filed and fees were paid on time, very accurate, gave the opportunity to review and impressed on how their team organized the supporting documents. We started the process right before the Covid, and my wife got her visa approved a few weeks ago. During this unprecedented time, all my concerns were taken seriously, and they provided practical solutions to it. I highly recommend Gus Shihab Law Firm to my family and friends with their immigration process. Also, I would like to thank their team for working on my petition, and helping us throughout the process. Overall, I had a great experience during this process, and I trust them.

I hired Mr. Shihab for my Change of Status application almost 3 years ago, and after seeing how professional he and his associates were, I decided to hire him again for my Adjustment of Status application. Mr. Shihab and his associates worked above and beyond to file my documents on time - very professional work and great follow-up. They even were proactive and scheduled an an appointment to discuss my Green Card interview a week before the appointment date with the USCIS. They followed up with me after the interview to make sure everything went well, until I have received my Permanent Resident Card a week ago :)
I am not usually the kind of person who writes reviews; however, when it came to what Mr. Shihab and his team has done to my case, and how nice, professional, and understanding they were, I couldn't help myself from doing so. A very well deserved 5 stars!
