Excellent K-1 Visa Lawyer!
Amin and his team helped me and my (then) fiance through a yearslong process to bring her to the US on a K-1 visa during the pandemic. During that time, there was a lot of waiting and uncertainty, but in the end we had absolutely no problems due to Amin's knowledge and skill. Also, Amin was very communicative. He would either call or email proactively if there was something to report and he always responded to our inquiries within 24 hours (or less). I highly recommend speaking with Amin regarding any immigration matter you have!

Immigration court with removal proceedings
Amin is not only a great lawyer but a great human being. I am grateful to have hired him as our immigration lawyer. He was professional, compassionate, and diligent throughout the whole process.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST
I came to AG Legal with little to no hope left for my immigration case. My previous lawyer was beyond incompetent, which left me feeling like it was pointless even trying again, but my friend recommended reaching out, so I did. Best decision ever made!! To call Amin a multitasker would be an understatement. The first time I met him I wondered if he heard half the things I told him about my life because he was managing other things while taking notes about my case, BUT DONT LET THAT SCARE YOU AWAY - a year later the man reminded me of all those things that even I forgot at that point. This is how I know this person knows his craft! Needless to say, Amin won my case. But in the process, he was very clear on what was expected from me, he reached out to the necessary authorities for establishing evidence on my behalf, his team scheduled all appointments and called twice to remind me prior to them, they’re all very polite, always offering water/tea/coffee. Amin himself is very professional, empathetic, confident and a total winner! I’d recommend him to everyone without any hesitation! THANK YOU, AMIN!!!

Asylum Approved
I wish I could express my gratitude beyond words. Attorney Amin is a blessing from God. My only wish was that I met you earlier. Your professionalism, reception, ability to listen, kind heart, accessibility, organization, speedy response, excellence spirit and winning attitude is everything for me. You attended to my case so personally (this is what you do with EVERY case), you are very vast in this field, and avail me of all options, even when other lawyers told me NO. It's been a long time since I have been looking for an immigration Lawyer to handle my case, but no one could help except Attorney Amin. After a free consultation with him, I got convinced that he is the one, and truly in less than one year I am celebrating the approval of my Asylum today. Thank you Attorney Amin for all your support and hard work towards my Asylum journey. If anyone is looking for a good lawyer with vast knowledge and experience with their immigration process, Attorney Amin of AG legal is just the best. God bless you!!!

Mrs.
I was helping an Afghan family that needed to file for asylum. Amin and his firm was recommended by another family. We were very pleased with Amin. He is very professional and friendly and did a great job. He is prompt at returning emails and answering all questions we had about the process. Their paperwork was filed in mid March, they had their interview late April and just received their approval notice late September! We highly recommend Amin for all your immigration needs!

Amin at AG Legal Delivers Excellence!!!
I recently had the opportunity to work with Amin from AG Legal, even though I live in California and his firm is located in Virginia. I was initially concerned about the geographical distance, but Amin's exceptional service quickly put my worries to rest. Amin made the entire legal process incredibly convenient by conducting our communication primarily through email. His responsiveness was truly remarkable. Amin consistently replied promptly to my inquiries, ensuring that I never felt in the dark or uncertain about the progress of my case. What truly stood out to me was Amin's dedication to clarity and detail. He took the time to explain every aspect of the legal process, making sure that I fully understood the steps he was going to take and the implications of each decision. This level of communication and transparency was immensely reassuring. In the end, Amin's expertise and professionalism resulted in a successful outcome for my case. I couldn't be more pleased with his services and highly recommend AG Legal, even if you're located outside of Virginia. Amin's commitment to his clients, regardless of their location, is a testament to his dedication to his profession. Thank you, Amin, for making a potentially complex legal situation so accessible and stress-free. I genuinely appreciate your outstanding communication and attention to detail.

ABSOLUTE BEST IMMIGRATION LAWYER!
There aren't enough words to say thank you to Mr. Amin Ganjalizade at AG Legal, PLLC. Throughout the years I have petitioned some of my relatives to come to the United States of America. I have never seen an immigration lawyer as kind, generous, devoted, and hard-working, with unwavering commitment as Amin Ganjalizade. He was always available when we needed his advice. He thought us the real value of a good lawyer. From our initial consultation to the end of our immigration process, he was patient, polite, and very supportive. His years of experience and expertise gave us confidence. He made sure that all of our questions were answered. I wholeheartedly recommend Attorney Amin Ganjalizade and AG Legal, PLLC to anyone seeking outstanding legal representation in immigration matters. TRUST ME HE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST IMMIGRATION LAWYER. Thank you, Amin and your entire team at AG Legal PLLC for helping us achieve our dream of obtaining our green cards. We are forever grateful for your exceptional service. Sincerely, HAMID REZA ZELGHI

VERY knowledgeable, kind and charismatic. Won our asylum after 9 year wait!
My asylum case (from Syria) was pending for 9 years with no sign of any movement. I worked with several immigration attorneys, and Amin was the only one who I found to be extremely knowledgeable (and researched the few questions he was not fully confident about before giving an answer). Amin was also very fast to respond, very kind to work with, and really knew how to speak with people at USCIS to get action. I highly recommend Amin for Asylum cases. Thank you for all the help Amin! :)

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I previously worked at Leyruta PLLC, where Amin held the position of Supervising Attorney. However, he departed from the firm before I had the opportunity to work directly with him. During my time there, I underwent training by watching instructional videos created by Amin and other experienced supervising attorneys. Upon establishing my own law firm, I reached out to Amin seeking prompt guidance. I found him consistently responsive and highly proficient in his advice. In my personal assessment, he exemplifies excellence in deportation defense within the DMV area, making him exceptionally qualified to serve as a mentor for aspiring attorneys in this field."
