She knows her job and she carries along her client through every process of their application. Her dedication,professionalism and expertise on immigration matters/issues can not be questionable.
She is always very calm, and polite when explaining her points to her client.

I got to know Karen Weinstock in 2006 when I first was relocated by the company I was working for. With an existing L1 visa I reached out to her to get more details on how to apply for a green card. When we met I immediately knew I was in great hands. Karen is so calm and with her outstanding knowledge and experience it was easy to work with her. Unfortunately the company I worked for pulled the plug and we couldn’t proceed with the application. I stayed in touch with Karen and whenever I had a question I reached out to her and received a response within 24 hours.
In 2012 my work visa expired I reached out again to find out what I can do to extend my stay for a certain time. Karen helped me with a tourist visa and everything went so smooth, no issues no problems, no questions asked by the immigration. My stay got extended for another 6 months. During this period I started dating a guy I knew for quite some time and once the tourist visa expiration came close he asked me to stay with him and his little son (who lost his mom due to sickness). Again I went to see Karen and she was so touched by the story and happy for me and said, we are going to apply for an extension of the tourist visa that should give us time to decide what we want to do later on.
My tourist visa was about to expire and just one week before the expiration date my boy friend asked me to marry him, to stay with him and his little boy (my little sunshine). I said yes and we went back to see Karen since we knew we couldn’t pull of the wedding before my visa expiration date. Karen was so happy to see that everything worked out and gave us the steps we have to take in order to file for the green card. We filed the application about 2 weeks after our marriage and about 6 weeks after my visa expiration and today I am a green card holder. Living happily with my family in the US. If Karen wouldn’t have the knowledge, I may have had to leave the country and it would have taken us forever to get back together. I am so thankful that I met Karen and she was our immigration attorney.
Karen and her team are fantastic and I hope she will be able to help many couples to be able to stay together.

Our experience with Karen and Weinstock Immigration Lawyers was by far the best experience we have had with any top law firm in Atlanta (We had the opportunity to request the services of four of them prior to contacting Weinstock Immigration Lawyers). Karen is a brilliant lawyer. She effectively addressed all our concerns resulting in a successful approval of our immigration application and transition of status. I will recommend her firm for any one who may be seeking representation for a smooth and successful immigration process.

I had a pleasure to work with Karen and Weinstock Immigration Lawyers. It was a very smooth ride from my H-1B visa to the green card.
The team was able to show commitment to the case and work under severe time pressure to make sure everything was done right and in time.
I would definitely recommend Weinstock Immigration Lawyers to anyone who's looking for immigration-related help.
