Thanks for your help!!!
Svetlana helped me with obtaining asylum in the USA. Thanks to her, my year began safely in this country. Through her effort, I was able to gain status. She was very professional with me and my case. She was recommended to me by a friend, whom she also helps at the present time. I can hardly get status and win my case if I dealt with another lawyer. She collected all the necessary information that I could not find. I can write a lot of positive information about her. And words of gratitude will not be enough. In a word, she is very strong in her work. Thank you Svetlana for your help and the confidence you gave me.

Svetlana has truly been a great help throughout our entire process. She has been diligent in her responses and questions and makes sure that we are on top of paperwork and other documents. What I received from her is that she wants our process to succeed by making sure she’s communicating effectively. I will be forever grateful how easy and quick she has made this entire transition. Definitely recommend!!

Amazing Attorney!
I've known Lana for over 10 years. Her immigration expertise and caring hand guided my husband and I through nearly a decade of the frustrated immigration system. In the end, Lana won our case and my husband is now a lawful permanent resident. I could not thank her enough, and I would recommend her to anyone that needs a great immigration attorney.

Professionalism on the highest level
We all know just how stressful times are when and if you come to a position to seek an advise from an Immigration lawyer. Save yourselves precious time and avoid all the confusion resulted by calling different law offices to "gather and compare info". All you ever will need - you will get with just one meeting with Svetlana. You will get an excellent listener and a wise adviser, and an overall honest person to guide you through quite complicated and stressful process. In all honesty, there are no words good enough to describe relief and a piece of mind when, at the end of that process, one holds secured residency and looks back at such kind and professional guidance. Thank you, Svetlana!

Professional Lawyer
Lana is such an intelligent and professional lawyer-I've been working with her for several years and she has always answered every inquiry and concern I had. My case was a tough one and Lana was supportive every step of the way and in the end I was approved for a green card. Can't say thank you enough times!

Thank you very much!!!
I recently received my Certificate of Naturalization and became a U.S. citizen. It was a long road and I know for a fact that I could not have done this alone. Svetlana was with me every step of the way. From helping with green card issue to the citizenship procedure. She was always professional, details oriented, helpful, friendly, and caring. Immigration can be complicated and confusing. She was always responsive and helpful in time. Communicating with her in Russian made it even easier. I grateful to Svetlana very much!

Excellent Attorney!
I couldn't be happier. For my wife and I, this has been a long and stressful process hat is finally coming to an end. We attempted to do this on our own at first, but eventually we realized we needed help. I feel lucky that Lana was the one that answered the phone when we called. I would highly recommend her to anyone working their way through the immigration process.

Review
Lana was a beacon of hope to our family at the time when our options were limited and the satisfactory resolution seemed high on impossible. When we first met Lana, we made a huge progress in just 15 min. talking to her.She is very kind, compassionate and professional and she is trying to help in any possible way she can. Lana made a huge impact on our family's future and we are eternally grateful for that. Because of Lana's help we can stay in U.S.A and become citizens one day. She is excellent attorney and we would highly recommend her without reservation.

Professional Trusted Successful
In life, a lot of things happen. I faced such problems that seemed to me one hundred percent unsolvable. Friends advised to contact the Lawyer service of Svetlana Kats. And the first thing I heard from her is that there are no ansolvable problems. She began to work and it changed the situation 180 degrees. It was like a change in the whole game. Within just one year, she was able to successfully complete three of my cases, which made it possible in an almost hopeless situation to obtain a residence permit. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. PROFESSIONAL, WHICH IS TRUSTED. VERY HEARTFUL. SUCCESSFUL 100%

Lana is a great Lawyer!!!
I hired Lana to help me to my I-130 Phase two to get my wife here to the USA. Lana was very informative about the entire process. She knew her stuff. Lana prepared me and my wife for what we needed to do to get our papers ready to be processed and sent to the appropriate locations like the NVC and USCIS and when the interview was coming for my wife to have at the embassy. Lana helped us prepare my wife for the questions she was going to be asked. My wife passed her interview and we are so excited to be together very soon! Thank you Lana again for all your help!
