I am here in US with an L1 visa but was only given 1 year. As we are about to reach 6 months I reached out to my previous lawyer who helped us with initial L1 but unfortunately she moved to another firm and no longer practice immigration. But she was graceful enough to refer me to Karen Mentor. At first I feel disappointed as to change lawyers but then from the get go Karen made me feel at home. From the initial phone consultation you can tell why she is highly recommended by her peers. She has been in this field for over 25 years and still work as if its her first case. She is very passionate in helping us getting our L1 visa renewed. My case is quite complicated as it involves a lot of business technicality and it require thorough study and analysis. But with Karen, she always make it feel there is a solution to every situation. My worries was at ease every time I talk to her. You will not get the most personalised service in any firm. You probably just be dealing with secretaries or paralegals. But with Karen, she can always be there even on weekends. She is not there to sell you her service, she is there to make sure your American dream is a reality. She serves with passion and with a heart. I HIGHLY recommend Karen Mentor. She is nothing but the BEST!

Easy communication, thorough work, good guidance through process. I could not have chosen a more professional lawyer to guide me through the process.

Karen Mentor did a great job for me as my divorce attorney.
Her communication skills and style are very unique and admirable. She was encouraging with her advice while still being respectful of my wishes.
She kept me up to date with my case status. I felt very comfortable being represented by Ms. Mentor as I know she fought and succeeded in every aspect of my divorce as she is an experienced attorney, who also takes each case to heart.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
