I couldn't have a better Attorney
He and his entire team have been extremely professional. They guided me and my husband in my immigration process (which honestly was not easy) in an excellent way, they were very patient with my ignorance on the subject, we had contact constantly, they resolved all my doubts and made me always feel confident at all times to solve my case I will be grateful for their service forever!

Attorney Evan Shane, Super Excellent Attorney
Attorney Evan Shane is an incredibly professional attorney. He is very cool calm and composed. And of course knowledgeable. Evan was/is my attorney of Super Excellence. Evan with his expertise and with Maria handled my case efficiently and as a result my process went through smoothly and now I am the proud recipient of my Permanent Residence Card A gentle giant always calm and confident. Never once did I feel anything but hopeful, empowered and reassured when ever I spoke with Evan. Evan doesn't talk at you....he speaks to you and with you making it a personal experience. It was so amazing that even on weekends, Evan responded to communication from me Even when he was out of office for days. He responded promptly. The first time he responded to me on a weekend I was so elated I called my sister and my daughter to tell them. I thought I would have had to wait until Monday morning. No! Evan responded. That told me that, for sure, it was not just a professional service but that he was accessible and didn't take me, as a client, for granted Evan and the staff of Shane, Shane & Brauwerman made me feel special by the attention and care given to me. It was always a pleasure to hear Evan say "Hi Maxine!" In his ever courteous, refreshing and friendly manner. Thank you Evan and the staff of Shane, Shane & Brauwerman law firm. May the Creator continue bless and keep you and the team together...so you can continue to help people in need of the super excellent service that you offer. Forever grateful Maxine EO...

Exceptional Immigration Lawyer
My husband and I have nothing but positive feedback for Evan Shane and his team! From his knowledge of the system and what to expect throughout the process, to his 5-star customer service, Evan and/or Maria were always there to answer every question and concern along the way. As one can expect, this process is an extremely stressful waiting game...despite the unknowns and all the things that were out of our control, Evan supported us the best he could and eased our worries. There was not a single email or phone call that was left unattended, and either Evan himself or someone from his team replied within 24 hours--if not much sooner. Upon hiring Evan, he gave us a rundown of the process, which pretty much went the exact way he described. When we finally got notice of our in-person interview, we felt like Evan made our case a priority and cleared his schedule to have multiple preparation phone calls. Evan met us at the location of our interview the night before and was completely present throughout the following day. He was beyond prepared, which not only made us feel comfortable and confident going into the interview, but also made the 20-minute interview itself extremely easy. The immigration officer approved our case on the spot, and we thank Evan's outstanding professionalism and preparation to be the main cause of that! Although there were delays that were out of our control, we received my husband's green card almost a year to the day we filed our paperwork. Evan: We are so thankful to have had your support and advice every step of the way throughout the past year. Looking back where we were this time last year...the feeling is priceless! We 100% recommend Evan Shane and his firm and would choose him every time.

EXCELLENT ATTORNEY
We would very strongly recommend Evan Shane.We felt very confident in Mr.Evan Shane counsel and enjoyed the hospitality at his office. Mr. Shane and his team quickly understood the complexity of our case and came up with options to deal with a seemingly hopeless case. If you have search this firm you need to call them immediately and make an appointment. If you are looking for great results you must hire them. I have been in the USA for more then 20 yr and have been thorough a lot of so called lawyers. This time i can truly say this is the absolute best decision we have ever made.Mr. Shane and his team made this process less stressful. This firm has made our family feel like their own.

Excellent Lawyer, Kind person
Mr. Shane has been my immigration lawyer for 3 years. He helped make my process of becoming an American citizen a very easy, smooth and stress-free experience. Before my appointment, he helped prepare me on the phone for an hour since my schedule was busy, asking me civics questions and answering all of mine. Although he made me feel prepared and at ease for my appointment already, he joined me that afternoon, waited with me for hours and made me feel calm during a very nervous experience. After officially becoming a citizen, I am glad that I had such great support and preparation from Mr. Shane. I would, without any doubts, recommend him to anyone in need of an intelligent, kind and experienced lawyer!

3 words: Professionalism, patience and perseverance
i read a lot of reviews and i met some (consultations) then i finally chose Evan Shane.. i am so glad i did that ! When i first met him, He was very professional yet he truly cares about your case..i felt it was easier to talk to him than the others i met .. he is more like a friend than your lawyer.. he simplifies things ..he and his staff were really organized and professional .. it was a pleasure working with them When things didnt go as we planned and i was really UNLUCKY in many issues ..he didnt just settle or whatever, he stepped up and put it upon himself to fix it immediately. Really he did his best and it was the best that could be done. When i was convinced it is not possible for me ..he called me and offered to do it WITHOUT EVEN GETTING PAID ! Few months later, after few interviews and lots of paperwork, i am finally a PROUD AMERICAN CITIZEN .. thanks to his great effort. Had my ceremony few weeks ago and one of the best days of my life ! Really i could not have done it without him. He is my hero ! I wanted to add this review to share my story and to help future applicants.. I fully recommend Evan to anybody who feels he deserves to be a citizen and needs a lawyer to help ease the process and NEVER give up on their case ...

First class lawyer
When it comes to the law, always hire a lawyer with an excellent reputation, because reputation needs hard work to be built. Evan, Is honest, freindly and has ethics. My uncle advised me to go to Braurman & Shane law firm depending on his previous experience, and i do recommend them "Evan" specifically from my experience with him for applying to a green card it was smooth & stressless.

Dream come true!
I had a challenging case and needed an extraordinary immigration firm to help with becoming a U.S. Citizen. My search lead to Immigration law firm Shane, Shane & Brauwerman. Mr. Evan Shane handled my citizenship case. He is an outstanding immigration attorney - very knowledgeable, confident, upfront and honest, deeply compassionate about helping people with their immigration goals. Evan kindly came to my state to represent me at my citizenship interview. I was very pleased with his representation and could not have expected a better outcome. He is the reason I am today a very happy and proud US Citizen! Thank you Mr. Evan Shane and your team for turning my situation into a dream. You guys are heroes and changed my life!

Handling of my legal case
I found this practice through online reviews and during the in person consultation it was clear to me that this firms values matched what I was looking for. Everything was clearly explained. No false promises were ever made and the whole process was handled as initially described. They went our of their way to make sure we were comfortable and fully informed at every stage. The professionalism and competence of everyone in this office was nothing short of impressive. I fully recommend them if you are looking for clarity and effectiveness.

Excellent and professional experience
Evan and his staff were very clear with us throughout the entire immigration process, we met several times, spoke on the phone to address any questions. They prepared all the documents we provided in an organized manner. In the end, Evan was professional enough to accompany us to our immigration interview, which ended up being a breeze because of his experience and preparation

Professional and pristine Service
I retained, Evan Shane at the Law office of Shane, Shane and Brauwerman, to file adjustment of status in December 2015. I must applaud Evan Shane and his team for preparing the documents, for filing, in a very timely manner. I received status updates as the filing progressed - in office as well as with the USCIS. I thought this was excellent. My case was approved in 6 months without RFE (request for evidence). I would recommend Shane, Shane and Brauwerman for your immigration needs. They pride themselves with professionalism and pristine service. I am extremely happy.
