Best immigration lawyer!!
I have used other immigration lawyers for previous needs, and I have to say that Connie Kaplan and her team are nothing short of the best! Choosing this office was the best decision I made during this part of my immigration journey. All of her team was very professional and attentive. Kudos to Belinda, Christopher, and Jhenny who helped us so much. I definitely will not hesitate to use Connie Kaplan for all of my future needs, and to recommend her to anyone I know.

Highly recommend!
We chose Connie and her team to represent us through our AOS process. Connie, Hannah and Jenny are extremely professional and know what they’re doing. They helped us with everything starting from explaining the process, giving us approximate timelines, preparing and sending out the paperwork, preparing the document package, to the final stage - the interview (Connie attended with us on the phone and it helped a lot). I am a permanent resident now and I can’t be more grateful! If you’re looking for an immigration attorney, I’d highly recommend contacting Connie!

You are in safe hands with Connie
Wonderful experience working with Connie Kaplan and her team as our attorney. Connie is highly knowledgeable about immigration law and explains the process thoroughly in your first appointment. After your first meeting the team provides you with a detailed plan of preparing your case and provides detailed instructions on how to avoid issues. Connie and her team (Hannah & Jenny – are amazing) they are very efficient and prompt you when needed, They are professional when responding to any questions. They quickly follow-up on documentation and artifacts, to ensure things are correct and in good order. It’s a complicated process, you need someone on your side, someone who can break things down clearly, and to structure your case professionally. Connie and her great team are the right people to do this for you. We are very happy that we became a client of Connie Kaplan, and we take great pleasure in recommending her services, she will not let you down. We are confident that you will have a great experience with Connie and her amazing team. 10/10

Don't Go-It-Alone, Because Of The Unknowns!!
In 2018 I was eligible to Adjust Status in the U.S. Friends and Family advised me to Go-It-Alone and simply fill out the USCIS application and pay the filing feels. ***Given the current focus on immigration and the serious nature of the Adjustment process I did not want to take ANY chances by incorrectly filling out the application. I also did not want to run the risk of not submitting the correct documentation or not enough documentation that could help my case. **** I found Connie Kaplan online and browsed her firm's website which I thought was very professional. I then scheduled an in person consultation. *************************************************** After our consultation we decided to move forward with Connie AND it was the BEST decision we could have made. Connie was direct and honest which I appreciated. She outlined the process to Adjust Status and gave us approximate timelines on what documentation we could expect the first few months. She gave detailed instructions on the documents we would need to present AND strengthen our case to USCIS. Connie's willingness to answer many of our questions was VERY comforting to us, And We Had Many!!!!! Connie also set expectations for us ahead of the interview process with USCIS. Knowing she was there during the interview, sitting behind us, greatly relieved any anxieties and fears we had. During the course of my Adjustment USCIS had asked for us additional documentation before deciding to approve my case. Connie told us EXACTLY what we needed to do. And I was approved! I cannot express enough how valuable Connie and her team was to us. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!!!

Connie Kaplan deserves ten stars!
From the first appointment in her office to the all-important appointment with the Immigration officer, Connie Kaplan has made the best possible impression one could ever imagine during the entire process of adjusting my status. My husband and I have been happy with every detail of what she has done for us throughout. She's now more of a family member, who cares about our welfare, than an attorney. From guiding us on every possible detail of what we should provide, to the records we should maintain, to how our friends could also help us by documenting our relationships, she has literally walked us through seamlessly until the end.

Very profesional and easy to work with!
I encountered with Connie at my job and from a small talk, she offered to help me if I had any questions. A couple of months later I contacted her and we started working on my case for Removal of Conditions. She really has the knowledge and knows what she is doing. If I had any questions, Connie was always very helpful and made the whole process to go so smooth and easy. The results really exceeded my expectations. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to those who need help with emigrations or use her help again!

I Definitely Recommend Connie Kaplan
Connie Kaplan was knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. She made the process for both my wife and I easier, by having trustworthy legal help, who was always a call or email away to answer any questions or concerns. We don't even live in Florida, but upon our first consult with her, we knew she was the lawyer we wanted to work on our case. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an immigration lawyer.

Can not recommend highly enough!
Incredible service from start to finish. Connie made the stressful and difficult process of getting a greencard go very smoothly and relatively stress free. Refreshingly friendly, knowledgeable and to the point we were very happy and can't recommend her and her practice enough. We will use again.

Connie is an incredible partner and counsel from start to finish. She helped us thoroughly navigate the AOS process even with a change to a different state. She is smart, kind, down to earth and tells you the situation as it is. Recommended 100%. Thanks again Connie!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
If you are looking for an immigration attorney that you can trust, look no further. My wife and I were looking around for a lawyer to represent and came across Connie. After reading reviews, we decided to get a free consultation and were impressed with her professionalism and proficiency. She is LGBT friendly as well. She is well organized and gets results! I hope this review helps other people choose Connie, she gets the job done.

Excellent Professional Help
I am extremely pleased with the Law Offices of Connie Kaplan. At our first meeting Ms. Kaplan listened to our history and explained our options. Ms Kaplan was very specific as to what the process would entail and the importance of supplying all documentation in a timely manner. She explained that the process could be lengthy, stressful and frustrating but not to get discouraged. I would strongly recommend Ms. Kaplan's services to anyone looking for professional immigration help. Her services are second to none.

EASING THE PAIN OF THE PROCESS
Ms. Kaplan made an extremely painful process bearable. The process in this country has become a nightmare for people with even the most recent intentions. Connie prepared us for the worst, and left nothing to chance. Just when I thought I could not come up with one more supporting document, thanks to her diligence and persistence, I did. The interview could not have gone better and I know that part of the reason was her recognized professionalism and reputation at USCIS. If you're thinking of going it on your own, don't. She is worth every penny, especially if you are LGBT and one of you is Mexican.
