Excellent service... Strongly recommend…
I am a post doctoral researcher in Physics and I received the service of Mr. David Soloway for my application for immigrant visa status through EB2/National Interest Waiver. In about five weeks after sending the application to the USCIS, I was surprised to see that USCIS have approved my I-140. I strongly believe that my case was successful because of Mr. Soloway’s excellent abilities as a lawyer. He is talented, knowledgeable, and very professional. I didn’t have any problem in communicating with him. He quickly responded to my emails. His comments and guidance were immensely helpful to get the important points into the expert opinion letters. Mr. Soloway had done an impressive job in preparing the legal brief and detailed index. Thanks for his service, presently I am happy to be a lawful permanent resident in US. I strongly recommend Mr. Soloway, especially to someone who has earned an advance degree through hard work and needs to get the permanent residence status.

Simply exceptional and the best
It is very seldom in this day and age we live in to find individuals like David, Mrs Soloway and their entire team at their firm. They fathom that the service they provide is the single most vital and even life altering thing their clients could be going though, as it was in my case. From the very first meeting I had to the very last I was treated like their most important client. I was treated like I was part of the soloway family. They were kind, understanding,patient,receptive, professional and the list goes on and on. Thank you very much for everything soloway family. You will always be my number 1 attorneys.

NIW for Cybersecurity specialist
I’m a cybersecurity specialist at a relatively early stage in my career. David helped me with the EB2/National Interest Waiver application along with the Adjustment of Status and EAD. My I-140 was approved in ~9 months which is faster than I expected, and my I-485 was approved a few months later; the whole process from filing to getting a green card took less than 14 months (filed concurrently) with no RFEs or interviews (EAD was approved too). I’ve researched attorneys that specialize in NIW cases around the entire USA before hiring David. I had mixed feelings about my success and how I should approach it. But after consultation with David and Theresa I was left with a great confidence about the success of my case. I had a lot of deadlines with my visa/EAD and time was against me, David helped me to shape my case in the best possible way, explained my options and steps with my visa so I won’t have any legal problems later. It took a few months with back and forth communication to draft my case. David and team were always available, answered all my questions (sometimes stupid or obvious) really fast and in detail, not just saying “yes-no” but explaining why it was that and how to make it work or alternatives that I didn’t know existed. We initially talked for more than 2.5 hours where he went through everything with me in an explicit way and helped to make my case stand out and guided me on how to obtain strong evidence. He took away my fears in a lot of aspects but mostly about independent expert letters, and helped to direct experts until the letters looked as strong as possible and complimentary to all my skills and expertise. I’m endlessly thankful for all the help, guidance and support that David and team gave me through my immigration process. As stressful as it can be with any immigration cases, David made it smooth, less anxious but also you will feel that you are in the right hands and the team genuinely will care about you. With a smile on my face, I now can write that I am a happy permanent resident of the USA, looking forward to a new journey ahead of me. But finally obtaining my new home - this is all a big THANK YOU to David, Theresa and Taylor. If you need a strong defender of your interests - this is the end of your search! David will help you as he helped me and hundreds of others.

Great attorney for NIW
I was looking for an NIW attorney and was referred to Mr. Soloway by my friends at Georgia tech. Although I moved to California, I decided to hire him. He did a great job editing my expert opinion letters. He also gave me very useful hints to collect evidence that strengthen my case significantly. My I-140 was approved in less than 5 months in 2018.

He is the one you need for your immigration case
When I hired David for the preparation of my EB2-NIW case, I had only limited time to submit my application. David accepted to prepare and submit my application in 3 weeks! Given his decades of experience with the preparation of I-140 applications, despite my limited number of reference letters, my case got approved right away. He understands that every application is unique in its nature, and he prepares an excellent application that meets your needs. He is very detail-oriented, he talks to you clearly, and take notes. After meeting with him, you will receive a detailed email about the meeting highlights. He is very responsive in answering emails and clarifying ambiguities. Thank you David for making the stressful process of immigration as smooth as possible.

Excellent service for my EB2/NIW case
David was my attorney for the I-140 application in the EB2/NIW visa category. During this time, he always meticulously and professionally worked on my case with good ethics, answered all my questions, and met all timelines he promised. He spent lots of time to assist me with having my supporting documents at a very high quality. My I-140 case got approved in around 10 months. I am happy with the quality of service that David provided for me, and I recommend him to anyone looking for a professional attorney.
