Emily Sumner was referred to me by my brother back when she was with Challa Law Firm. She was a very easy to work with and communicated very well. After she started her own law firm I dint have to think twice, I was one of her first new clients. Emily has worked on my H1B and Employment based green card. She is very diligent, meticulous, has attention to details and communicates very well. She and her firm kept me informed of the updates and always advised me in any issues or questions I had. She is a pleasure to work with. I totally recommend her and her services.

As a foreign national and a researcher, I hired Emily to file my EB2 NIW application and i'm happy to say that it was one of the best decisions i've made. Filing for a green card can be a nebulous and often times demoralizing endeavor. Right from my first consultation till the filing, Emily demonstrated why she's one of the top immigration lawyers in the region. She's not only highly skilled and a thorough professional at what she does but what sets her apart from other lawyers is how she treats every client as the only one. She was in constant communication with me throughout the process and many times pushed me to expedite to produce the trove of documentation needed from my end. She has always answered the numerous immigration questions i have asked promptly. I've been to consultations with other firms and i can assure you that Emily Sumner's firm will provide you with the best professional yet personalized immigration help you'll find. Therefore, I highly recommend hiring her for all your immigration needs.

Emily is very helpful and flexible to get us through the green card application process. We communicated primarily through emails and phones because we don't live in Richmond.
