The best attorney for the most difficult immigration case
I am very pleased to write this review regarding my successful experience having Mr. Ashraf Salem as my attorney for an immigration case I had. Me and my family had just relocated to Tampa, and I was in need of an attorney for removal proceedings against me by the USCIS. After an extensive online research and reading reviews about several lawyers, I decided to reach out to Ashraf with my case. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life.
From the very first time we met in his office, and after hearing my side of the case, Ashraf was always forthright about the difficulty of the case. He was extremely patient and professional describing to me and my husband what needed to be done to try to transfer the case to Tampa, what the subsequent steps would be, and what the government lawyers or prosecutors would likely be doing preparing for the case. In the course of our discussions, Ashraf was realistic and never gave any false hope. He made it clear that the chances of winning the removal proceedings based on charges of marriage fraud, with the government having such strong lines of evidence against me, were pretty slim. Yet, he was confident and willing to go the distance. He laid out his defense strategy, and discussed with us what we needed to do. He treated us with a lot of respect and was never condescending. That attitude made us very comfortable to share our thoughts and feel that he was always looking out for us. Because of the way he handled the case and treated us, we felt that he was doing all he could, and that made us prepared to accept any outcome of the case.
One of Ashraf's impressive attributes is that he is more concerned about helping his clients than how much money he can make out of a case. I feel that Ashraf deserves every dollar he got out of my case, not because we won, but because of how much work and effort he put into the case. I feel very fortunate that I found Ashraf, and I'm thankful to the people that wrote those raving reviews about Ashraf before mine. My advice to anyone considering to hire or consult with Ashraf is that you need to be honest, lay everything out, and be prepared to hear the truth and the reality, because those are the things you get when you talk to him.
I would highly recommend Ashraf Salem to anyone that is looking for an immigration attorney in this region. I believe he is in the top 1% of immigration lawyers in the Tampa area. I make this recommendation not because he won our case, but mostly because of his professionalism, patience, his understanding of the situation, and above all the respect for his clients.
