Fast case processing
I worked with Jennifer on my naturalization process and the petition for my wife and son who were overseas. Jennifer filed my citizenship petition, and I was called for an interview after just three months. She attended the interview with me and was incredibly helpful in responding to inquiries from the immigration officer. At the interview, I was invited to the naturalization ceremony within three days. This case was very fast and professionally handled. Additionally, Jennifer changed the category of my petition for my wife and son. As a result, my petitions were approved within two weeks and referred to the Department of State for visa processing. From start to finish, Jennifer demonstrated exceptional professionalism, expertise, and dedication, which led to outstanding results. I highly recommend her services for anyone needing assistance in immigration.

Hired for immigration from Argentina
Very professional and knowledgeable. I hired her and her firm to help me bring my family from Argentina to the US (I am a US citizen). She answered every question, walked us through the process and helped us finally finish this path towards immigration. We are truly appreciative and happy with the results!

Succesful service
I hired Jenniffer Melendez's services to get my F1 visa. My situation involved a denied entry into the US through the ESTA program regarding a brief online "job" I had undertaken two years prior. In this challenging time, Jenniffer was a valuable resource. She carefully reviewed the details of my case, offering practical insights and guiding me through the complex immigration processes. Her expertise and commitment were instrumental in helping me resolve the situation. Thanks to Jenniffer, I ultimately obtained my student visa and the incident ended up as a misunderstanding, allowing me to continue my education in the US. Her professionalism and attention to detail were evident throughout our interactions, and I am grateful for her support.

Felicidad ABSOLUDA!!! la abogada Jenniffer nos supo guiar durante todo el proceso y aunque he de decir que es especialmente meticulosa con toda la documentación. eso nos hacia saber de que todo lo que requería la visa estaba bien preparado. eso nos lleno de seguridad y el día de la entrevista NO tuvimos inconvenientes de ningún tipo ni sorpresas inesperadas. Todo el caso estaba muy bien preparado y finalmente salimos de la embajada con nuestra VISA aprobada.. la abogada es una persona muy agradable, que te sabe entender y el dialogo con ella se hace agradable. Volvería a contactar con ella sin dudarlo. Mil Gracias.

Best inmigration law firm
Jennifer Melendez and her team did a great job walking me through the process until my case was completed. They have great knowledge of inmigration laws and government operations. I would recommend this team to anyone who needs assistance with inmigration status.

Very thorough and professional.
JM immigration firm han sido la respuesta a todas nuestras plegarias. Mi esposo y yo le debemos a ella y a todo su maravilloso equipo que nuestro caso haya sido resuelto positivamente. Mi esposo tenia una condición en su residencia, lo cual le impedía obtenerla permanentemente. La petición para remover la condición había sido negada anteriormente y nos sentíamos con mucha incertidumbre y no sabíamos que hacer. El hasta estuvo a punto de ser deportado en una ocasión y fue acusado de haberse casado “por papeles” por agentes de USCIS. Gracias a la preparación, esfuerzo y dedicación de Jennifer, hoy podemos estar tranquilos. No duden en hacer una consulta con ella, y se darán cuenta que estarán en manos expertas y dedicadas. Muchas gracias Jennifer y equipo por estar siempre al pendiente del caso y por no dejar pasar nada por alto! JM immigration firm have been the answer to all our prayers. My husband and I owe it to her and her wonderful team that our case was resolved positively. My husband had a condition on his residence, which prevented him from obtaining it permanently. The request to remove the condition had been previously denied, and we felt very uncertain and did not know what to do. He was even on the verge of being deported on one occasion, and he was accused of having married to obtain his green card by USCIS agents. Thanks to Jennifer's preparation, effort and dedication, today we can finally feel at ease. Do not hesitate to consult with her, and you will realize that you will be in expert and dedicated hands. Thank you very much Jennifer and team for always being on the lookout for the case and for not letting anything go unnoticed!

La Mejor Abogada
Soy residente Americana desde Abril 2017, y en Julio 2020 en plena de Pandemia por motivos personales regrese a Rep Dom temporalmente sin intención de abandonar EU, y mi doc de viaje (i-151 que es la extencion de residencia temporal ) , se me vencio estándo allá. Unos meses después ,casi dándome por vencida, (Diciembre 2020) me recomiendan a Jennifer y ella comienza a trabajar en mi caso. Para el 13 de Enero 2021 doy positiva al Covid , pero aún así seguimos intentando sacar el permiso de Viaje y no es hasta Febrero 05 que doy Negativa de Covid , cuando pagamos el Fee para el travel document y ese mismo día la abogada Jennifer contacta al Immigrant Visa Unit en el Consulado Americano en Rep Dom , explicando todo el caso a lo que nos indican que yo podría abordar el avión con el correo electrónico recibido por la Unidad Consular donde me autorizaban y con mi prueba de covid negativa. Así lo hice , pero la línea aérea no me dejó abordar con esos Documentos , retrasando aún más mi retorno a EU. Volvemos a contactar a la Embajada y explicamos lo sucedido , y es ahí cuando me conceden una cita presencial el 19 Mayo 2021 para darme una visa temporal de 1 entrada y poder retornar, deje mi pasaporte y me lo entregaron con la estampa unos días después y retorne el 31 Marzo. Cabe recalcar que durante ese tiempo me había llegado una notificación de mi fecha de entrevista para mi residencia permanente, y Jennifer contacto USCIS para hacerle cambio de fecha por mi misma situación de no poder volver a tiempo a US y asistir a dicha entrevista. Quiero Felicitar a Jennifer y a su gran equipo de trabajo, son extremadamente profesionales y no dan pasos en falso. Me vi prácticamente retenida en Dominicana sin poder salir , con mi residencia expirada , en plena pandemia con todas las fronteras y Embajadas literalmente cerradas y casi sin esperanza de poder retornar y perder muchos años de sacrificio y estabilidad . Ella siempre me acompañó vía telefónica en todos mis procesos y de verdad que es el MEJOR LEGAL ADVICE que puedo recomendar , de verdad que . Hace unos dias me hice ciudadana Americana ,y en la entrevista en la revisión de mi caso ( estuve 9 meses en Rep Dom) estuve todo el tiempo segura de mi proceso porque se que contaba con la mejor Abogada que existe de inmigracion Gracias a JM Immigration Firm por acompañarme en mi proceso, no me cansaré de recomendarlos nunca !

De Visa Rechazada a Aprobada
Intente renovar mi visa americana B1/B2 pero fui rechazado porque no me asesoraron de la forma correcta. Luego de esto contacte con Jenniffer desesperado y sin saber que hacer. Ella se tomo todo el tiempo necesario para hablar conmigo por horas para entender mi caso y preparar un caso solido. Se encargo de contactar a la embajada de estados unidos para apelar y prepararme una nueva carpeta. Luego tuvimos 2 horas de llamada para poder revisar todo a detalle y prepararme para la entrevista. Gracias a Dios y Jenniffer hoy fui aprobado y tengo mi visa de nuevo. Conoce mejor que nadie como obtener la visa que desees y tiene una excelente profesionalidad y forma de trabajo.

More than 5 stars!!
Jenniffer Melendez is an excellent attorney, we are extremely satisfied with her work. She is very profesional and precise. She was handling my husband's Adjustment of Status and everything was a success. My husband got approved for his green card without an interview , we were in shock. She has the best staff. They went above and beyond when preparing our file for immigration. Once again we are so grateful we had you as our attorney. Highly recommend her for any case.
