Great service
I don't know where to start. The service, the support and the strength provided by Attorney Sacha was outstanding through the entire process. He is very patient, cooperative and detail-oriented. In addition he explained the situation very clearly also he has provided up-to-date immigration information, replied email earliest possible time. I would highly recommend him.

A professional and amazing help to us
Mr. Shaygan has been a wonderful help to our family. He takes his work very professionally and is always willing to answer any concerns we have. He aided us in full process of our daughter's DACA and has been a great success. Mr. Shaygan even aided our daughter in her application to the Harvard Summer Program she will attend this year. We do not know what we could have done without him. He has made all of our application processes much easier and walked us through each step and made sure we fully understood what things meant.

Such a professional experience
I have to say that it truly is quite daunting doing any kind of paperwork, but my immigration procedure was extremely smooth and rather efficient. Sacha is wonderfully patient with a knowledgeable team working with him. This process was painless and professionally handled and I would advise anyone who needs to do their immigration papers to immediately contact Shaygan and Legal as they make this process with no stress to you. Thank you again Sacha for your advice and professionalism throughout this whole process. Also thank you to Cassidy who has extremely calming and helpful always. I will always be passing on your details to anyone who needs your service.

Prompt, effective legal service
I previously consulted with Sacha on an immigration matter, but he more recently helped me apply for a green card for my spouse. Sacha was very thorough, taking the time to talk through the issues with me during our initial consultation and in reviewing my application materials. He created an easy-to-follow list of next steps and promptly responded to all of my follow-up questions. I was very impressed with his services and plan to refer any future immigration issues to him. I recommend him to anyone requiring assistance with immigration matters.

Excellent Attorney!
I was very impressed with the way Mr. Shaygan handled my naturalization case, which was complicated for several reasons including a serious criminal charge. He provided excellent counsel, did thorough research and advocated very well for me at my interview. Can't recommended him highly enough.

Immigration Referral
I have a friend who is trying to obtain a work visa in the United States. Hossein was kind enough to set up a 30-minute consultation to talk through my friend's case with him and explain some of the basics of immigration. He then made a referral to another attorney who specializes in the area of immigration that would best suit my friend's needs. Hossein was highly professional and courteous, and I highly recommend him.

Thankful that I had Hossein Shayeganfatemi (Sacha) to represent me!!!
My family and I went through a difficult moment, and My Attorney the one that God put in my way could have not been described but as the genuine attorney very knowledgeable, friendly, professional and very patient with the many, many times I called him, he was very understanding, always explained how the process would be, when we went to court he was positive and kept us informed at all times, he is very transparent. He was there from beginning to end and as a result my family's situation had a happy ending, when other attorneys said we did not have hope, he believed in us!!! Thanks to his professionalism and knowledge I can say that my husband's situation has been resolved and has his green card, my family wasn't dissolved. I would highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a honest transparent & professional Attorney to resolve your immigration case, call Mr. Sacha you won't regret it. Thank you so much Sacha God Bless you!!!!

Former Client
Attorney Hossein (Sacha) Shayeganfatemi is the most professional, honest, and caring lawyer I have ever found. He has a very pleasant character, and is quite generous with his time. He did an excellent job with my complicated case resulting in the approval of my difficult application. He was always available when I needed him. Finally, unlike most other lawyers whose fees are beyond ridiculous, Sacha is quite fair in his billing. I recommend him 100%.
