Thank you very much for your kind and honest words. I was surprised as I rarely ask for reviews but focus on positive results. It was a great pleasure working with you on the US naturalization process. Congratulations!

Helpful and prompt
Mr. Eddy has always been very prompt and understanding toward my immigration queries and concerns. Very friendly and approachable. We look forward to working with him again.
Response from Dr. Eddy Chielo March 30, 2023
Thanks so much for your recommendation. I also look forward to working with you again. Passion and advocacy for immigration are important. However, being an immigrant myself matters and more important because I went through the same process as you. I wish you and your family the very best in all your endeavor.

Name change correction after naturalization
Thank you very much Sir for clearing my confusion. I was not sure about the next step after getting my naturalization certificate without my name change. Whether to contact USCIS or go for court procedure for name change. Thank you for the clarification.

The answer was clear and precise
Unlike many lawyers who answer in a vague way, the answer to my question was very precise. I think his experience as a immigration officer has a lot to do with that.
