Криминальное дело.
Мне была инкриминирована кража 3 степени. После консультации Катерина быстро ознакомилась с материалами дела, сказала как будет построена защита и начала работать уже на следующее утро. Регулярно была на связи и информировала о ходе работы, консультировала. В результате удалось закрыть дело и снять обвинения . Рекомендую адвоката, как отличного профессионала , знающего специфику уголовных дел и хорошего человека. Она действительно упорная, щепетильная, четко и быстро реагирует и будет бороться на стороне подзащитного и сделает максимально возможное . Спасибо большое! Желаю дальнейшего роста , успехов в работе и здоровья!

Honest,understanding,smart and more....
I don't want to text unprofessional but I called her "my angel lawyer". cuz she is! she was really my only light when I was very hopeless and sad about my cases. I had two different cases with her and she did great job. she was very patient, understanding and helped me a lot and she gave my life back. you can easily find a lawyer but finding honest ,smart,real lawyer with good heart is too hard . hopefully she will be always my lawyer.. thank you very much Katerina for all

Caring attorney who never gives up
When we started to look for an attorney, every other attorney told me to give up and they won't take the case. We were lucky to have Katerina, as she turned out to be caring human being and wonderful attorney, who kept fighting for our rights and in spite ofdifficulties, never gave up until we won! So very thankful to her. You will be lucky to work with her!

Green Card Success!
The Law Offices of Smith and Kurbatova is a fantastic firm. Ms. Kurbatova has been extremely helpful and informative from my initial consult to notice of my green card approval. They have been very clear and supportive throughout the process and they really know what they are doing. I am very grateful to them for facilitating this process and getting great results. I would highly recommend them to any one who needs immigration-related legal assistance. Thanks again Katerina, Kelly and all the other staff who got me through this process!

Personable, Proficient, and Professional
Katerina Kurbatova got the job done for our case! She held our hand during an uncertain time— her team stayed in communication with us, and reassured us that they were there for us through all of our doubt and questions. Ms. Kurbatova was honest with us from our initial consultation that our case was not going to be easy but that she was determined to work alongside us. We are very grateful that we hired her and recommend anyone who has any doubt in the back of their minds that they need representation to consult with her! We recommended our brother to her, and will continue to do so to others. If you’re looking for someone who is excellent at their job but also compassionate, she’s the one!

Stress-free gren card process
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Mrs. Katerina Kurbatova and her staff. I am delighted to receive my green card after one year and two months after submitting the application. Katerina and Alyona made the whole process stress-free. My experience was positive from start to finish because of the extreme professionalism and excellent service, I did appreciate that every single question I had was answered promptly. Thank you for absolutely all the help you and your team have given to me.

The best Immigration Attorney
I hired Ms. Kurbatova after my first petition was denied. She reviewed our case and told us that is going to be a little challenging, but we are going to fight and win this case. I believed in her words, and now we are the winners of the case. Thanks for all your hard work.
