Excellent Lawyer
In 2014 after having a very terrible experience with multiple immigration lawyers, I was so desperate to find a truthful honest lawyer who can help me with my very complex case. I-751 denied with deportation proceedings. I was hopeless and depressed till a friend of mine recommended Mr. Bromberg and Mihaela Petre. Hope started to grow after consulting with them. They worked thoroughly, built my case strong. With their outstanding job, my Greencard was approved and deportation proceedings was dismissed. Helped me with my citizenship application and now on my way to OATH TAKING! I wouldn't be here to where I'm at now without their help! Mihaela is very down to earth. She has a BIG HEART who listens and feels whatever a client is going through. I highly recommend Ms. Petre!

Very good lawyer
Because of Mihaela and her the all staff I was able to stay in USA with my family. I'm married with 2 kids. I was subject to deportation after being arrested for something I didn't do. All charge were drop but had to fight deportation. She was with me thru the whole process. Was able to get my work permit then my green card thru the court. She was always when I needed her. She and her staff helped me a lot thru all this year. Overall Mihaela is a great lawyer Im Glad I have hired her and definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a lawyer.

Thanks Mihaela Petre for your outstanding support with the EB1 – Green Card Process
In 2012, a colleague from my former job referred me to Bromberg, Kohler Maya & Maschler, PLLC. I was looking for a professional law firm to guide me with the process of obtaining a green card through the EB1 (Extraordinary Ability) category for me and my family. Mihaela Petre, who is an Of Counsel with the firm, took the leadership on my case. Mihaela was very thorough, responsive and professional throughout the entire process. There was a moment when I wanted to hurry up the process and send the application package quickly. Mihaela explained to me that there were still a few elements missing which, if obtained, would have strengthened my case. So, we decided to wait a little before submitting and we worked together to further build my case and improve my chances of success. I was really glad to see that the application was approved and we could move on to the next step in the process – the green card application for me and my family. Mihaela accompanied us to the interview, which went very well. We are very grateful for Mihaela’s outstanding work, which allowed us to become residents of this beautiful country. Thank you very much!!

An outstanding professional and human being, an assertive lawyer
An outstanding professional and human being, an assertive lawyer I highly recommend Mrs. Mihaela Petre! She has recently helped me to get my daughter’s visa approved. She is not only a competent and understanding attorney, but also a trustworthy person! She was excellent in preparing and filing the visa applications and I was impressed from the first phone consultation by her knowledge, honesty, and also because she immediately understood my daughter’s legal issue. I knew we would work well together right then. She worked hard to meet the deadlines (which was very important in our case), guided us throughout the application process, and was extremely responsive every time we needed her advice. She always responded to my e-mails and was very patient with explaining what had to be done and how my family and I could help. I am from Europe, she informed me very well about my options, and very importantly, she understood that I am a person with hopes, fears, and aspirations, not just a legal case. She never gave false hope and I will forever be grateful for her work, and her humanity. I am really pleased with the way she handled my case and I highly recommend her to anyone whose immigration matters are close to the heart and/or crucial to the future and to those seeking high quality assistance for their immigration issues. Considering a rating for different aspects, I will give Excellent for trustworthy, Excellent for responsiveness, Excellent for knowledge, and Excellent for keeping me informed. In conclusion, if I should give an overall rating for Mrs. Mihaela Petre, this is Excellent! Stefana
