We almost lost our case because of the work of Aziz Law Firm- the work that was done on the case was very clerical, something that in time you can do on your own, and we did not see any solid arguments/ input submitted with our case that would help us win it. We wrote our own statement and it was barely edited and we later came to know- when we handed over our case to another attorney- that our personal statement needed a lot of changes before submission.
Ms. Aziz herself is very hard to reach. You can almost never reach her by phone and she and her office are very slow in responding to emails. If you want to talk to her by phone, you will end up talking to her paralegal and he/she will be Ms, Aziz's 'messenger' to you rather than her talking to you herself.
It may seem at first that the rate of the firm is lower than everyone else, but when you end up hiring someone else down the line, it will seem wiser to start off with someone else in the first place.

I have known Cynthia for over 20 years and in every dealing I have had with her, she has been exceedingly professional, knowledgeable and her compassion for her clients is amazing. She is my "go to" attorney when I have a complex case and I am thankful for her assistance and counsel.

Cynthia worked on our case more than 8 years ago in a very difficult situation, but it went through.We were then overseas.She also petitioned and helped me get my 6 years old son than here with me in less than two months,when I was told overseas that it was impossible.She is affordable and one that will get the work done...she cares about every client that she works with..awesome lawyer..I will recommend Cynthia to anyone going through a difficult immigration process..since then I have recommended Cynthia to friends with immigration problems..
