Attention to Detail (Best Immigration Lawyer)
I have spend many years with lawyers, but none like Mr. Shabani, his attention to detail, his kindness, and organizational skills really gave me confidence, our case was very serious, we were faced with a NOID, Met attorney and he immediately got to work, and we were approved 30 days after he sent a detailed response/rebuttal to USCIS. No Question if you looking for an attorney to really dive in and do the work the right way. CHOOSE Mr. Shabani, I have now retained him for all future affairs.. I wish I could give him a 10 stars...

Very professional and responsive!
I was involved in a major car accident on January 28, 2021. I felt lost because I saw that no one out there was really wanting to meet up with me during these covid times and genuinely help me out. My cousin recommended Mr. Shabani and he has been nothing but amazing. My experience with him has been beyond what I expected. We have just closed my case as I am fully healed and I could not be more satisfied with his work. I would 100% recommend him as an attorney/lawyer for anyone who is looking out there. Thank you Mr. Shabani

Small Claim Settlement
Mr. Shabani was a great help with getting what I owed to a collections agency down a great amount and also made it to where I only had to pay 3 payments! He completely surpassed what I thought could be done and would definitely use him again should the need arise!

Immigration Case
I have had the best experience with attorney, Allen Shabani, he's amazing and very attentive!!! It took us a long time but we finally got through it because the immigration process is a really difficult process and what better person to do it than Allen!! He really knows what he's doing!! He is diligent and very amazing at what he does and takes time out for his clients to truly help them!!! I am so satisfied with him and his work he has helped my Honduran husband get a green card from all the way over here in Honduras Without even having to be in the US!!! We've been here waiting in Honduras and are finally are on our way to my home in USA!! He's a SUPER LAWYER and I have nothing but love and positive things to say about him!!! God bless him!!

Great attorney!
I came to Mr. Shabani when we hit a bump in the road with my husband‘s adjustment of status. He’s very flexible and stayed late at his office to meet with us and also met with us on the weekend as well. He’s also very easy to get in contact with! He definitely eased my mind and assisted us in the rest of our immigration process. Most attorneys don’t like to represent people who file their own petitions, but Mr. Shabani accepted to represent us. My husband successfully received his adjustment of status with no further issues. We highly recommend Mr. Shabani. Thank you Mr. Shabani for all of your help!

I was very anxious seeking out legal help but Mr. Shabani completely made me feel self assured and positive for the outcome of my case. He made me feel like a top priority and I fully trusted him to do what was best for me. He was very professional, always responded promptly and informatively to my questions, and informed me every step of the way.

Best and most humble attorney I've known!
Mr.Shabani is an outstanding lawyer. Our case was not that difficult, but he made sure we were taking care of. He is very honest and very responsible. He is very good with the payments as well, I have referred many people to Mr. Shabani and everyone has been pleased with the outcome.

His help was a blessing to our family!
Mr. Shabani was the only attorney we found who actually understood our situation and helped us resolve the problems. We had previously contacted several other attorneys who took payments, but did nothing to help. We were beginning to think that there was no hope. Then, a friend recommended Mr. Shabani. He knows the law and he cares about families! He made sure that everything was done as it should be and kept our family together. I cannot say enough about how much we appreciate all that he did for us.
