J1 hardship waiver/permanent residence lawyer review
I highly recommend Lori Pinujh and her office for J1 waiver/immigration related needs. She was extremely diligent and thorough with all the paper work and provided excellent legal advice. She was kind and attentive and took time to answer all my questions regarding the hardship waiver and permanent residence process. She stays well informed of any new changes to uscis or state department policies and made sure to keep me updated and sent me reminders as needed during the process of getting the hardship waiver and permanent residence. Again, I highly recommend her office.

The Best Immigration Lawyer
Lori is the best immigration lawyer you can ask for. From start to finish, the process was seamless and stress-free thanks to Lori's thoroughness and attention to detail. Her staff was equally amazing and always provided me with immediate support to any questions or concerns I had. I highly recommend Lori to anybody who needs legal advise and help with their immigration status.

Lori and her office were incredibly professional and proficient in their approach. They worked with all parties involved and were diligent in everything they did. If there were questions they reached out directly to ask/answer them in a very timely way. I would recommend them to anyone looking for the best experience through this process and an office who genuinely cares about their clients.

ATTESTATION
I hired Mrs Lori Pinjuh for my adjustment of status and the case was successfully approved in less than 6 months. She is very professional with regards to her field (immigration law) helpful, understanding but above all, truthful. Lori did not focus on my money but more of my success and because of such, she answers her clients' needs regardless of their financial situation or any form of difficulty. We worked smoothly through the process and she was always available to answer my questions with positive feedback. I recommend Lori Pinjuh because of her professionalism, kindness and truthfulness; in conjunction with success stories of her handiwork.

Excellent immigration attorney
Lori was excellent to work with for my spouse’s i601a and i601a request for information (RFE) submissions. It was a long journey but Lori walked us through the process every step of the way. She is has been extreme knowledgeable, responsive, direct and patient with us throughout the process. Lori has also helped us with navigating the complications and many questions related to my spouse and kids immigration case. I am grateful for the excellent work as my spouses’s i601a and green card are now approved. Thank you Lori. We could not have done this without your expertise and support! .

We can't always understand the long waiting time periods imposed by DHS but at least we can be comforted in knowing what my experience tells us for your own particular case type. Take care and keep your chin up.

The most reliable human being on this planet.
Lori is the BEST! She is the most reliable, honest, talented, fair and professional immigration attorney I have ever met. While I know many immigration attorneys, she is the only one I am 100% confident to send my families and friends to. I would trust Lori with my life.

Quick and accurate response
Responded first to my question with an answer explaining the situation. it was accurate. In my case looks like nothing can be done from the lawyer side, so it was just a brief consultation.

TCN Visa review
Lori assessed my situation quickly, to the point. Made made think of things that I never thought about before. Applying F1 visa as a TCN can be complicated and complicating process. Thanks for her, feel assured now and know what to consider when preparing for visa interview as TCN. P.S. She asks questions like how Visa Officers at US embassies would do.
