Mr. Goulder is an expert in his field and did a fantastic job with my case. He was professional, very organized, prompt with all documents, and a strong advocate. I highly recommend him.

Mr Goulder is a first rate experienced, knowledgeable, caring and compassionate immigration attorney. I worked with him for over 2 years. I would work with him again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend him without any reservations!
In the interest of space and brevity, I will try to highlight a few aspects of my experience with him.
1-Truth in advertising
He is very accessible just as he says. I was never given the run-around. Not even once. When I needed to speak with him, I spoke directly with him.
He usually got back to me via email or phone call the same day or within 24 hours. I was never left to wonder what was going on at his end.
3-Honest and trustworthy
An example: towards the end of my case, I sent his office a check to replenish my retainer. Mr Goulder returned the check to me telling me I did not need to pay anymore. He could have kept the money and I would have been none the wiser. He kept his word. Each time he said he would do something, he did it when he said he would.
4-Caring and Compassionate
I received personal attention and time to deal with my particular set of circumstances.
Mr Goulder takes the time. His firm is not the kind that strives to run too many clients through in an hour. US immigration laws are quite complicated and often leave those of us who have to navigate through the system feeling vulnerable and easily taken advantage of.
When my case had officially ended and I was no longer a client, something came up and I contacted him. He could no longer handle the matter himself but he took a little bit of his time to provide some guidance including a referral for me. That was above and beyond the call of duty and I am forever grateful.
Mr Goulder loves his work and truly cares about his clients! It's obvious to see that when you work with him. He also keeps up with his ever-changing area of expertise.

At a time when other professionals had let me down and I was extremely distressed , Mr Goulder , right from the very first phone conversation , gave me much needed truth and hope for my immigration situation. Although I never personally met him, distance was not an issue as he simply guided me and contacted me through secure online technology and phone appointments. Mr Goulder is truly professional , while considerate at the same time. He helped me to not only cope with the procedure of A VAWA self petition, but also produced a successful outcome which affected my whole life and stability in the USA. I have no hesitation in recommending, that anyone in search for an honest, reliable , hard working and very knowledgeable immigration attorney, look no further then Mr Gerald Goulder. He absolutely cared about my case and showed just how knowledgeable and professional in all the documentation which he prepared for immigration on my behalf. I will be forever grateful for all his help and professionalism.
