Fantastic attorney
I hired Ms. Lyons for my defensive asylum case; she was a great attorney. She went beyond my expectations, and she handled my case with great responsibility. Ms. Lyons is easy to communicate with. She responds to my emails and phone calls promptly and addresses all my questions and concerns. She is a very professional, respectful, and extremely competent attorney. Her hard work and her recommendations were crucial to win my case. Ms. Lyons is the best immigration attorney in Ohio and one of the top Nationwide, and I highly recommend Ms. Lyons for immigration cases

Fantastic immigration attorney
Nikki helped me get my green card, with my husband as the sponsor. She is highly knowledgeable and passionate about immigration, and I am very glad that we hired her. Nikki helped us navigate the application from start to finish, including filing, and attending our USCIS interview. She demystified the immigration process for us and promptly answered every question we had. If you want a Dayton-based immigration attorney who will treat you with respect and give you the individualized attention your case needs, I highly recommend Nikki Lyons!

Great Immigration Lawyer
My wife and I were looking for an immigration lawyer to handle our case. After meeting with several in town, Nikki was the only one that stood out from the rest. She was knowledgeable and compassionate. You can really tell that she cares about her clients and loves what she does. We hired her that day.

Just Awesome
Nikki Lyons is an outstanding immigration lawyer. I am so glad I talked to her. The government was about to deny my petition and she was able to fix my problems. She saved me a lot of time and money in the process.

EXCELLENT Lawyer!
Ms. Lyons was professional and courteous. My wife an I were looking for an attorney to obtain an immigrant visa, hired Ms. Lyons, and couldn't be happier with our choice - she definitely knew her stuff! She was very informative and understanding throughout and made us feel a lot more confident about it all. If you are looking for an immigration lawyer, look no further!
