I have been facinated by travel and people's stories ever since I lived in India during junior high school.  Both my husband, my mother's husband and my sister's husband are from countries other than the United States.  I have first hand experience at how immigration impacts families.

10/10 Recommend!
She did a great job from start to finish. Janeen explained the process very well, worked with us any time she could and knew her stuff! I am very grateful for finding her firm.

Above And Beyond
I had messaged Janeen on a huge situation I have going on. Not only did she call back THE SAME DAY (which I wasn't expecting her to) but she personally leaves a voicemail and answers all the calls! She helped me figure out what my next steps needed to be, even though most people would've cancelled the call right away, once they saw that it was no longer in their interest. Her selflessness really touched me. Even though she had no personal expectation, I am going to refer her to a lot of my family who are working and trying to figure out how to transfer to the U.S. Little does she know, that she is going to be the reason why my fiance will be able to permanently move here.

The Best
Janeen won our case. She was strong and positive during the most terrifying time in my life. There has never been a time that I needed to contact her and couldn't reach her. She was always honest. She told us how everything works and what the outcome we hoped would be, but she also told us what could happen. When she told us the "what could happen", she would follow up with a game plan to handle it. Janeen fought for us from 2017 until now. She never left us. She never gave up. The price she told us was what we paid. No hidden fees. No surprises. At court I saw people who's attorney never showed. Janeen asked us one time to share her for a few minutes. She quickly went to save a person from deportation. Their attorney didn't show up to court for them. I trusted Janeen with my familie's future and she saved us.

Absolutely Wonderful!
There is just so much great things I can say, and would dare bet that others would agree! As much as there is to handle and delicately deal with in the marriage and immigration process, Janeen made handling it so precise, through and very easy to manage. There was never anything left up to question and no stone unturned as to what all had to be done to get the best outcome and desired results. Although a process of making everything legally appropriate for a marriage to another of a foreign country is such a hard and sometimes daunting task, she made it feel like such a breeze. Very thorough and right. She is a lovely, personable and kind person to be around, which makes a legal task like ours easier to swallow and handle. I will continue to refer anyone to her should there be one in need.

The Best lawyer ever seen!
I had a complicated case and I was not pleasant with my previous attorney. Very stressful times. Then a friend recommended Mrs. Pierre. During our consultation she focused on my problem, she explained everything and I decided to hire her. That was the best decision that I’ve ever made. She is very intelligent, very responsible, always return my text messages, callings and emails. She absolutely knows what’s she is doing. She filed everything on time, always did let me know every kind of details. She did her best and I won my case. if you have a complicated case, looking for an attorney, I strongly recommend her, DO NOT THINK TWICE. She is the best! And again, thank you so much Janeen!

Excellent Attorney
I consulted with other lawyers before going to Janeen. The other lawyers were unable to get my husband's case approved. With Janeen my case moved super fast and was resolved within a year. She is very responsive with calls or messages. I would highly recommend Janeen!

You have been a great attorney and you handle my case with so much care and concern
Janeen represented me in my case which was extremely complicated. I was charged with a fraud and was going to be deported. Janeen appealed my case and won it. She then represented me to submit my application for permanent residence, my situation was particular and I was concerned about that but she always inspired trust, confidence, and peace of mind about my situation. She always responded promptly to my questions and was very clear about all aspects of the application process, I have to flew to my country to received my permanent residence and I admit that I was very nervous about that but I received my permanent residence and I back home and am so grateful to Janeen for taking what I imagined to be a near-impossible situation and making it manageable, successful, and completely affordable.

A lawyer that knows what she is doing.
She is the best lawyer to hire and handle complicated case, before hiring the great Janeen I consulted a hand full of attorneys and all of them told me there is no way out of deportation. so I was really giving up until I met janeen for consultation then I decided to hire her for my case and firing my current attorney who charged me tons of money without getting any results in my first hearing. With her special skills and hard work my case took a fenomonal turn where I was able to keep my GC and stay in the US with my family and not being apart from my kids . And I will be applying for my citizenship soon.There is no word can express my appreciation and gratitude for her hard work and accomplishment .. thank you thank you god bless you

Awesome!!! The Best!!!
My case was very complex and before I met Janeen, I was almost given up. Meeting Janeen 2012 gave me life again to believe in the system. She knows the law and always made me feel calm/confident when I call her with concerns, etc. She is the one to go to with immigration case/s anytime. Janeen is the best of the best...!
