Ms. Anwari recently handled my wife's immigration change of status and got us her permenant residency. From the moment we met Ms. Anwari, we knew we came to the right place and knew right away she will be our attorney. At the first meeting, Ms. Anwari explained the whole process from beginning to end, told us exactly what kind of paperwork and documents we need, and laid out the timeline of how long it would take. She was spot on regarding everything she told us; over the following few months the process and time line went exactly as she had explained.
We found Ms. Anwari to be extremely helpful, caring, and knowledgeable. Seeing how she works and experiencing her professionalism put our minds at ease and made us confident.
Another great aspect if dealing with Ms. Anwari is her great communication. Every time we emailed her to ask a question about the next step in the process, she answered right away, some times on the same day, and even on weekends. That alone puts her firm ahead of so many businesses that take forever to get back to you.
We need to start the process of removing restrictions from my wife's permenant residency in two years- we will definitely be contacting Ms. Anwari for that as well.
We couldn't have asked for a better attorney.

Ms Anwari recently helped with my naturalization case. After waiting a year for a decision on my case, I decided to consult a lawyer. Ms Anwari was the first lawyer I consulted and I knew immediately that she would be the right person to handle my case. Within few months of hiring her I had a decision on my case. Not only was she insightful on all the questions I had, always made good recommendations on the next steps and pro-active. Top immigration lawyer, highly recommend!

My traffic lawyer gave me the phone number for the Anwari Law Firm so they can fix a mistake I made. I am a U.S. citizen and filed to bring my wife and daughter from Morocco. When I filed for my wife and daughter, I was a green card holder, so I did not know I had to do another application for my daughter after I became a citizen. I hired Mrs. Anwari and she knows the immigration law so well she filed my daughter's application and asked the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration to process my daughter's case quickly because my wife's case was already approved. After she sent everything to them, I got my approval less than one month later! I almost did not believe it. I tell my friends and they tell me this kind of case takes months. She is an expert immigration lawyer. Thank you.
