A+ for Mr. Abdallah and his willingness to help!
Mr Abdallah was a lifesaver, literally. I needed to find an immigration lawyer to help my boyfriend who was being held by I.C.E. and going up against the state to be deported. After contacting over 10 immigration lawyers in the area, Mr. Abdallah immediately wanted to get to work. He was the only person to give me hope during this confusing time. Mr. Abdallah walked me through all the information he needed to help with our case. He kept in touch through phone calls, emails, and office visits to guide me step-by-step on the status of this case. He focused on the positives while still going over every outcome that was possible to avoid any surprises. Additionally, this was my first time going before a judge to testify. Mr. Abdallah made sure I was more than prepared as we went over every relevant question that I could possibly have to answer. He guided me with how I should form my answers to help with the case. I felt very confident that Mr. Abdallah was the person representing my boyfriend during this stressful time in our lives. Overall my experience with Mr. Abdallah was great. And I was relieved with the outcome of our trial. I highly recommend Mr. Abdallah for any immigration issues.

OUTSTANDING immigration lawyer!
Mr. Bahjat Abdallah is by far the most knowledgeable and experienced lawyer I have ever come across. I was facing deportation a few years ago and contacted some lawyers and he was definitely the best decision I made. The first time Mr. Abdallah and I spoke I had a vast sense of comfort and security. He reassured me that he would do everything in his power to fight for me while he worked on the case. That alone took the pressure and stress away allowing me to focus on my family instead of worrying about the case. I can assure you he most certainly did. He always responded promptly to my emails, was very efficient and thorough in the immigration matter and presented himself very well in court. I could not have found a better lawyer that is as kind hearted and humble as him. On top of all that he has very strong work ethics. Now I am working on my citizenship and I owe it all to him. If not for Mr. Abdallah I truly believe my life would have taken a turn for the worst. I sincerely and truly appreciate everything he has done for me and my family. I would highly highly recommend Mr. Abdallah to anybody in a heart beat.

If you want an honest, loyal, reliable, passionate lawyer, Mr. Bahjat (Bill) Abdallah is your choice hands down!!!
I have known Mr. Bahjat (Bill) Abdallah since 2008. The reason for our acquaintance is for immigration purposes. In 2008 upon looking for lawyers for my situation, I found Mr. Abdallah. At the time I was very lost and emotional as my loved one could have been deported. Being the American citizen, I was absolutely devastated. I didn’t want just any immigration lawyer. Normally I do tons of research but couldn’t find much on immigration lawyers in the area. I visited two immigration lawyers offices and was very displeased. These lawyers seemed as if they didn’t have a care in the world about your loved one and just wanted the money and not put in any work for it. I came across Mr. Abdallah from a google search and decided to call the number listed. From my very first phone call I was very impressed with his knowledge on the topic of immigration since I was completely uneducated on any of it. He took the time to explain the process on a level that I could understand. He is a very patient man who will not move forward in conversation unless you understand it to its entirety. When I hung up with him, I went with my intuition, and my goodness I am beyond pleased I did. Immigration is not an easy situation for anyone. There are so many people affected by it that it becomes a very emotional and stressful time for everyone involved. Mr. Abdallah took the entire burden off of me to the best of his ability. Throughout the whole process he pretty much let me sit back and go for the ride. Although a bumpy ride, he remained professional and compassionate the entire time to the point I thought he was a therapist as well. He kept me calm and I had full trust in him. His communication during the whole entire case was phenomenal. I never had any unanswered questions and was completely informed on everything that was going on. He truly cares about your case as well as your well being. He will put the time into it and go far beyond the extra mile to get the most positive outcome he can for you. You won’t just be a name on a piece of paper and writing a check, he truly fights for you. It almost seems as he treats you as if you were a family member. If you want a top notch stellar lawyer or lawyer specializing in immigration, Mr. Bill Abdallah is the man for the case hands down!!!

Very knowledgeable and fair
I had a case which he helped me solve in less time and more efficient than other local lawyers would offer even he had to travel. He also explained and educated me with every step in my case and made sure I understand before making any decisions. Would recommend him anytime to anyone

the professional that you can ENTIRELY count on for your immigration related matters!
Finding Mr. Bahjat Abdallah was the best thing ever happened to us (I and my spouse) during our long and demanding immigration journey. He gained our trust since the very first contact with being both very professional and also warm and truly caring. Neither of us were born in States and English is not our first language. Even so, he was very patient and entirely clear while explaining things, made sure that we understood the process, never gave false hope but was always very positive and focused to get our immigration case APPROVED which HE DID! He was very knowledgeable, knew what he was doing and kept us posted all the time. He was so quick to respond every time we had a question. Immigration law is complicated, process is stressful, can be emotionally painful and he did his best to make it easy and simple for us, was always very polite and considerate. We both felt that, he really and truly cared about the case that he was dealing with not just as a good lawyer but also as a human being too. This is what you need exactly and probably the most when you are going through the immigration process. Bahjat also answered all of our other questions not until just the case was approved, till I receive my immigrant visa, entered US and receive my green card. He even helped us with some other further matter and gave professional advise even he did not have to. I am so grateful that we found this wonderful lawyer who helped us reunited and both my husband and I recommend him to those who look for a tough immigration lawyer.

Very positive experience with Mr. Abdallah
I had experience with this attorney because I was a friend and advocate for one of his clients who was applying for citizenship. I accompanied my friend to consultations and the hearing. Mr. Abdallah was efficient and very knowledgeable about potential difficulties. He was very positive, helped the client be positive, prepped the client well and everything went very smoothly. I was especially impressed with his patience in explaining and communicating even though there were some language and knowledge barriers with the client. He is very respectful and professional.
