Fantastic Attorney
Jennifer and her team were fantastic. I started my process and was very nervous in the beginning but Jennifer and her team reassured me that it will all be ok and that it takes time and patience when it comes to immigration cases. Today our journey has ended on great terms. I was informed this morning that my green card was approved and she was holing it in her hands and was sending it out to me. My family and I are truly grateful to Jennifer and her team for what they do.

The best immigration lawyer I have ever worked with
My wife and I contacted Jennifer Grace Smyrnos after dealing with many other immigration law firms and being told there wasn't anything we could do to progress our permanent residency case. After 22 years of dealing with stagnation from USCIS, Jennifer worked with us to get everything we needed to successfully apply for and obtain permanent residency. This process took us about 5 years and I needed to renew my work authorization multiple times throughout the process. Jennifer guided us through the EAD renewal process while also progressing our permanent residency application. She skillfully translated all the complex legal jargon into clear instructions for my wife and myself to understand. Working with Jennifer has been such a pleasant experience and I cannot recommend Jennifer enough.

Knowledgeable, Responsive, Diligent and Efficient in our citizenship appeal process
At first, we applied for my husband's citizenship on our own without an attorney. His application was denied in December 2021. At this point we knew we needed a lawyer. After a consultation with Mrs. Jennifer that same month, we decided to hire her team to represent us in an appeal process that she recommended for his case. We had very little time to respond to the denial, but Jennifer, Maria and Monse were all very knowledgeable, helpful and quickly responded to emails and questions we had while we gathered documents and information for them to submit the appeal application. After an error on USCIS' end when the application was submitted, Jennifer's quick response and knowledge of the laws allowed our appeal application to be accepted when resubmitted. Here we are 5 months later in May 2022, my husband's appeal interview last week was a success, and his citizenship application was approved. His oath ceremony has already been scheduled. To God be the glory. We want to thank the Grace Immigration Attorney team for their dedication to our case, their guidance and diligence through the process.

Great immigration lawyer!
She helped very thoroughly with my case. From the beginning until the end, she was very informative, serious and helpful all throughout my case. I will definitely recommend her to other people, and I am sure if I need her help in the future, I won't hesitate to contact her. 10/10

Professional and knowledgable
Jennifer and her team are the best. They are very knowledgeable and professional. They did not leave me on my own after filing my case and receiving their fee. Anytime that I reached out to them to ask a question or concern, they got back to me very quickly with the best and most thoughtful answers. They helped me very patiently with the change of address, and rescheduling my interview which happened because I moved to a different state while my case was still under review. I highly recommend their firm to the people who are in the immigration process.

Would totally recommend
We called to make an appointment with Ms Jennifer January of last year and we were able able to get an appointment within a week of calling. Let’s just say it was a great experience from beginning to end. While this process we knew was going to be overwhelming for us and couldn’t handle it all my ourselves, we knew we wanted a lawyer we could rely on and would help in easing the process. Ms Jennifer and her team were always there to answer every questions we have, and responded to questions as soon as she could. In six months from the time she sent all documents I got my green card and what a relief. I couldn’t have done this without you all. My husband and I are very much thankful. Thanks to Candi as well for always answering my questions whenever I called PS: This doesn’t work like magic. It requires patience, Ms Jennifer will not send off any documents to USCIS until she feels confident enough that everything and all the necessary documents have been put together, so you just have to be patient and trust her that she knows why she is doing. I say thy because I personally wanted everything to work like magic and had to get out of my head and let her do her job and send the documents off when she was confident enough that It was time to send it to USCIS. 6 months now I have my green card, and I haven’t stopped looking at it. Lol. Thank you

My husband and I worked with Jennifer throughout our entire process. She was professional, helpful, and attentive. Her office always responded to our questions, and gave us very sound advice. She is very knowledgeable regarding the legal system and immigration. I would recommend her to everyone seeking legal counsel for immigration purposes. My husband gets to stay in the US!

Professional, Thorough and Diligent
We recruited Jennifer and her team to help us with my family-based permanent residency adjustment of status. They were professional, prompt in answering all of our questions, and diligent and thorough in going through the hundreds of pages of documents that we had to submit to USCIS. I heard from other people that the immigration process is stressful and long, but thanks to the Jennifer's counsel, it was a painless process for us. I highly recommend them for immigration related legal counsel.

Great experience - will recommend
I had retained Ms Jennifer and her office to file my citizenship case and follow through the process. They guided me well on legal points, kept me updated on case status, opened and followed up on service requests as needed and never let me feel lost during the entire process as often happens in immigration processes that span years. If you are looking for immigration help in Roanoke area, I will definitely recommend Ms Jennifer and her law office Grace Immigration PLLC.

Amazing team
Less than a year ago I was starting to get stressed our with my immigration process. But after getting in touch with Grace immigration team. I felt like I had to relax and know they got this. They contacted me frequently with updates on my filing process and always available for my questions. Less than year of filing I am super excited to say I have my green card and all set to enjoy my life without worrying about travels. The team is amazing and am so grateful for them. I will recommend them any day and anytime with all your immigration needs.. thank you so much.
