Best Lawyer for LGBTQ couples and individuals
We wanted a Lawyer who would treat us like any other couple irrespective of the fact that we are same-sex couple. Consultation with Sasha was sincere and she did everything to assure us that we were in safe hands. Her price was fair and she provided payment plans that worked with our budget. Our documents were sent in on time, and also approved without much difficulties. She knows her work!!

Highly Recommend Sasha and the team!
Sasha and the team were amazing. They helped with my wife’s citizenship and then my green card application! Both cases were approved and they made the process so easy. I would definitely recommend them for all of your immigration needs, especially if you have any special or difficult circumstances.

Wow Service!!!
Sasha and her team did an excellent, efficient service with my immigration case (green card). She explained the process precisely with regards to my case and the same result what we got until the day I received my green card. We are very happy for her excellent service handling my immigration case, her staff providing the support/help needed - Sasha is very easy to work with - who is consistently providing professional service, well detailed, very supportive/caring person. All inquiries are provided with a quick, concrete responses with regards to my case.

We highly recommend Sasha's service for your immigration process. Kudos to the Team!! Again, Thank you Sasha, Myriam & Francisco from our bottom of our hearts.

Very professional and responsive
We want to thank Sasha and her team for all the help and professionalism in our case. Since our case was not simple, my husband and I went to three different lawyers, and only Sasha began to work with us! Every step from A to Z was easy and professional. The gathering of documents was as quick and easy as possible. Best service! Best team!

Best Lawyer in United States!!!
I will only recommend Sasha Westerman-Keuning as we have ever seen anyone treated better. Sasha took on an extremely difficult case and encountered issues that few had seen. She was my expert in all areas. 

More than once, Sasha went the extra mile for us and ensured a great outcome. She knows her craft. Mrs Westeman and her team were available at any given time and responded directly to my questions promptly and professionally. She has stood by every one of my court trials and guided me through the entire lengthy process. She was very understanding, patient, calm, and supportive. I am very appreciative working with Sasha and her team that they also showed to be caring on a personal level instead of just handling the situation as a “case”. Danielle and I are proud clients and will continue to retain them for all legal matters that may arise as we know we are in the best hands. Thank you Sasha and Myriam You Are The Best !!!

Amazing Immigration Attorney who takes down walls!
We retained Sasha to represent my husband and I from his K1 Fiancé Visa through his Green Card. My husband is from Brazil. From the very first consultation I could see how dedicated, determined and passionate Sasha was about immigration and helping couples and families realize their dreams. We chose Sasha because of her expertise in LGBT cases and her passion for immigration law. Sasha takes time to thoroughly explain the process and what to expect easing anxiety and painting a realistic picture of what to expect. She is very responsive to questions or concerns as they come up. My husband’s file prepared by Sasha was so thorough and complete and we were so well prepared and informed that our green card interview was simple, effortless and went as smooth as we could have hoped for and of course, successful! We are forever grateful to Sasha and her amazing staff of legal professionals for making our dreams come true and highly recommend her and her team for your immigration needs.

So thankful
After calling numerous attorneys with little enthusiasm about my case and only their fees, I came across reviews for this firm and booked in for a consultation. The call was informative and very positive and i did not hesitate to put my trust in their hands. The legal assistant was very helpful and thorough when submitting the paperwork. A lengthy process but all in all worth getting worth from the start to avoid future delays. My wife and I met Sasha a week before the interview and were met with a welcoming, bright woman who knew our case inside and out. We came away from the meeting fully prepared and confident in the outcome.

The best lawyer with an awesome team
Sasha is the most knowledgeable person you will ever meet when it comes to immigration law. She is never critical and working with gay and transgender clients, she makes you feel at ease, without false promises. She is up front and open with everything and very reassuring. Her and her staff make sure you have everything in order and leave no detail to chance. She is a strong, confident and brilliant woman that anyone would do themselves justice to have her represent them. My wife and I are eternally grateful.

Great lawyer
Sasha is an amazing lawyer, great person, very helpful and easy to work with. She made the whole process of getting my permanent residence permit so easy. All I needed to do - to give my information and supply the documents, the rest was taken care of by her and her team. She is very knowledgeable and supportive. She was complemented by the immigration representative on her great job and the way she presented our file. Thanks to her my interview lasted not more than 5-10 minutes. I would definitely recommend using her and her team to everybody, who needs help with their immigration process.

Amazing lawyer in every way
I've had to deal with my share of immigration lawyers for a number of years. I can honestly say I had never met a lawyer like Sasha. She is not only incredibly knowledgeable but she is honest about any possible outcomes and ways to deal with any type of possibility in regards to your case. She is very positive kind, but most of all... Caring. It's rare to see a lawyer that truly cares about their clients and treats and respects them as people as she does. I've had a few twists and turns during my paperwork path but I'm glad I've had her by my side.

Sasha is an amazing lawyer and an even better friend.
This is a HUGE shout out to Sasha of Rostova Westerman Law Group P.A. Without them helping us we would not have made it thru this process some what sane! We know our case is not the normal case but if you look at the dates of our I-601 waiver application 10/4/2017 and our approval date 11/6/2017, Miracles can happen. A huge shout out to the US Embassy in Argentina! They got notice we were approved before we did and they called on November 8th 2017 and told us about the approval, we flew to Buenos Aries November 9th 2017 for our 2nd interview at 11:30 am and walked out of the Embassy at 3:30 pm Passport and Visa in hand with the travel pack. We fly home for good on Nov 20th!! Immigration Approval Start to finish 15 months!! First application i-130 filed August 6th 2016. The most important advice: HIRE Rostva Westerman Law Group P.A. for help and guidance through out your journey. They are extremely professional, painstakingly thorough, the epitome of truly caring and passionate people. We are MORE than happy to have hired them but even happier to be able to call them friends.
