My experience with Eli on the phone was exceptional. Even though we have never met or talked on the phone prior to my calling him, he nonetheless took my call, asked the correct questions, followed up via email and was able to assist me with the information i needed from his law firm with the speed of a bullet. ( I request a copy of my I-707 , Notice of action) I contacted him on Friday and got the information on Monday - this is especially noteworthy because he was not involved in handling my petition which was filled long before he joined the firm .
Last words: If you want action taken on your case - Eli is the go-to-man

Eli, successfully, lead me through a very difficult immigration process. Two other immigration attorneys told me that citizenship would be unlikely, but were still willing to accept my case and money, but without a clear plan. When Eli's firm accepted my case, they explained the potential pitfall, but were able to articulate a clear plan.
I was naturalized two months ago.
During the entire process, I commended Eli on his efforts and progress. Based on that alone, I was recommending him to others in need of an immigration attorney.
