Excellent Service
Our case involved a lot of work with gathering information about my husband's journey here. Mr. Vedder and his team were amazing! They were knowledgeable about the immigration process and kept us in the loop at all times. We always left their office feeling confident and secure in our decision on choosing them as a lawyer! They provided a positive atmosphere when we would meet with them, which helped my husband and I feel more at ease about our case. If we had to go through this process again, we would go through Mr. Vedder and his team. I would recommend him to other people with 100% confidence that they would receive the same experience that we did.

Best Immigration Lawyer
I would like to take a minute and tell everyone who has a very complicated immigration matter that, not only they should not go it alone, but they need to hire the best Lawyer out there, a Board Certified Immigration Lawyer and an Expert in the Immigration Law such is Mr. David F. Vedder. My very complicated case was won thanks to the hard work and expertise on this field by the Law firm of David F.Vedder. After dealing with three other Lawyers, we were finally lucky to find this Lawyer who knows all there is in the immigration field. My status was adjusted to a LPR and I cannot find the words to describe how happy we are. Folks when you are faced with any kind of Immigration matter, think David F. Vedder (D.F.V.) (Dedicated. Flawless. Victorious.)

Excellent Immigration Law Firm
Vedder is an amazing Immigration Law Firm, works every step of the way with you. Mrs. Tessier was an outstanding attorney who worked hand on hand with us throughout the whole process, would highly recommend. Husbands case was long and complicated and they never hesitated one time in looking for the best decision and step to take for our family'd best interest. Guided us every step of the way, from resources, to who to speak to and what to do next. Always keeps in touch no matter how busy, professional and works from the heart.

Professional service with very fast response and friendly staff
We got our case rejected by USCIS because of the documents and we reached out to Mr.Vedder's office. Leah was very professional and friendly, our case was prepared and done within the time USCIS had given us. Throughout the waiting period, Leah would check up on our case status to know if there is anything they would be able to offer assistant with. Now our case is approved finally and that is the great news for the whole family! Thank you.

Excellent service !
I requested Mister Vedder's services in order to obtain my green card after getting married to my husband, who is a US citizen. I am so glad I made this move as they have all been very helpful and amazing !! I appreciate their professionalism and their client oriented focus. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for immigration services and would certainly requested their services for myself or a family member if necessary. Special thank you to Leah Madera, who I felt very comfortable with and is clearly an asset to this immigration firm.

EXCELLENT TEAM WORK!!
Unfortunately, BEFORE Mr. Vedder, my wife and I hired a lawyer that failed at professionalism and was not knowledgeable about immigration law. We decided that we should take a risk and start fresh with new lawyer. Soon after we switched to Mr. Vedder, our case suddenly re-awoken from what seemedto be a place of no return. Our first impressions of David Vedder were that he was extremely knowledgeable and optimistic about our situation. He immediately gave us hope and comfort during our consultation, which we strongly needed. We were assigned Mr. Daniel Ross who is also an immigration attorney in David Vedders firm. Mr. Ross was very compassionate about our case. When ever there was an update on our case, he immediately contacted us about it and told us what was the next step in the process. He has strong communication skills, which gave us confidence. Mr. Ross was not "too busy" to respond in a timely manner. He was very down to earth and very professional. If there is ever a friend who asks me what attorney should they hire for his or her immigration case, I will immediately refer them to this firm. They got everything right on the first try. Every single person on Mr. Vedder's team is amazing. My wife and I are extremely happy with the results we received from this team.

Immigration Attorney | May 13
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr Vedder handled my family member's immigration case - to me, what better endorsement is there then that! Mr Vedder has an impressive practice built on a nationally recognized expertise in the field. Mr Vedder limits his practice to immigration and truely has mastered it - there are too many lawyers who dabble in this field - many to their clients detriment. If you need help with a complicated immigration matter or a straightforward visa, call Dave Vedder! Do not put your future in the hands of someone who doesn't do this type of law all day every day!"
