Michael has been the most amazing help that I could have ever hoped for. From the beginning of our Visa application in 2011 right through to our successful green card application Michael has walked us through every step of the way. He does not respond in "Lawyer" talk but explains each process clearly and in a way that is easy for everyday people to understand. His advise has been excellent and always looking out for our best interest, not his most profitable method. I hired Michael in 2011 for our initial visas and have engaged him twice for visa extensions and now for the green card process. With out his services I am absolutely sure that we would not have been successful as there are so many pitfalls and documents that can either be overlooked or filled out incorrectly. I cannot thank Michael enough nor can I recommend his services highly enough. You can have complete confidence that whatever he undertakes on your behalf will be completed in the most professional and cost effective manner possible. Thank you again for all that you have done and I would definitely used Michael's services again and with 100% confidence recommend him to everyone.

When I first emailed Michael about the services his firm offers, he responded quickly and offered to speak with me on the phone. During the first consultation, Michael provided all the information I needed to know, which eased any fears and anxiety I had about the process, especially since I lived outside the US. His responses to my questions were thorough and elaborate. He was willing to repeat his responses until I understood all of it completely. Once I let Michael know that I would like to work with him on my H1-B, he began coordinating with the organization that hired me in an efficient manner, and clearly communicated what he needed from me. He was patient with the way he handled communications with the organization that hired me, and I truly appreciate that! Additionally, he was available and willing to answer any questions I had at anytime.
I was particularly impressed with the cogent, compelling an intelligent arguments Michael detailed on my H1-B petition. Michael understands the process and the work. He makes the process looks seamless and effortless. He is knowledgeable and knows what he is doing. He is responsive and manages all communications efficiently. Michael's promptness, flexibility, knowledge and expertise is commendable. I cannot recommend him more highly!

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Mike many years ago (before he was licensed to practice law), and am proud to see the great steps he has taken in his immigration law career as a practicing attorney. Mike is always abreast of the latest developments, focusing his considerable talents in employment based applications such as J1s waivers, H1B, Os, Conrad Waivers, and numerous other visa applications. He maintains the highest ethical standards, and is honorable to his clients, and a pleasure to consider a member of our immigration law community.
