Профессиональный адвокат
Мне довелось обратиться к услугам мисс Шмидт и я был впечатлён её профессионализмом и точностью её советов. Благодаря её консультации мне удалось избежать ряда проблем, которые возникли бы позже, не зная правовые аспекты моей деятельности. Я могу порекомендавать мисс Шмидт как компетентного адвоката, который имеет индивидуальный подход к каждому клиенту.

I hired Ms. Schmidt to help me out of a pretty complicated issue where my U.S visa where cancelled because of something that was not my fault. I was very worried that I will not get visa again. However, Ms. Schmidt has contacted with many agencies to clarify my situation after a couple of days. She is a very professional attorney and she made me feel better while she worked. I would really hired her again.

Professional and Thorough
Katarina helped me while I was in process of getting my permanent residency. My application was delayed and she directed me to right places to seek for help. She was able to answer any questions I had and was able to help me understand the process better. With her knowladge and assistance I was able to find answers.

Best immigration lawyer...
She is the best immigration lawyer. I just got my citizenship interview and passed the tests with her help from the first day until the last minute. I also learned a lot about the immigration and divorce from her. I strongly believe that she has a bright future as a lawyer. I absolutely recommend her whoever needs help about immigration. Thank you very much Mrs.Schmidt.

I am so glad that I was able to find someone like Katarina. Not only was she an absolute joy to work with, she was extremely knowledgeable about the laws that affected my particular situation. Without her guidance, I would not be where I am today. She was patient, communicative, and hard-working. I truly felt that she had my best interest in mind at all times. I cannot recommend her anymore highly!
