Great immigration attorney!
I would highly recommend attorney Applegate to anyone who needs assistance with an immigration case. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and easy to work with. She is a great listener and really takes time in explaining every step that will be involved in the process. I am very thankful I chose to work with her, because as a result, I received my green card without any complications and much earlier than I originally expected. If you need a knowledgeable immigration attorney, who will do a fantastic job, look no further, hire Attorney Applegate.

Great Immigration Attorney!
My friend referred me to Mrs. Applegate, a very professional and ethical immigration attorney, who is also fluent in the Russian language. She worked with her and was speaking about her highly. From the first meeting, I was certain that I wanted Mrs. Applegate to take my case. She is very knowledgeable, honest, and respectful to her clients. Also, I was able to discuss my case with Mrs. Applegate in my native language, which was important to me. Mrs. Applegate explained every step in the process, answered and clarified every question and concern I had. I was looking to remove the conditions from my permanent residency, but my ex-wife was refusing to support my application and did everything possible for my application to be denied. Mrs. Applegate sent numerous requests to entities and individuals to help us obtain evidence and build a strong case. She prepared me well for the interview, made arrangements for the translator, and really guided me through the entire process. Only two weeks after my interview, my application was approved. I could not believe that my difficult case could be resolved so fast. I am very thankful to Mrs. Applegate. She did outstanding work on my case and I highly recommend her.

Excellent attorney! I highly recommend her!
I hired Ms. Applegate to help me with a green card process, and she went above and beyond her call of duty to help me to achieve positive results in my case. She really took the time in explaining every step in a process, and helped me to obtain all the documents to support my application and kept me informed through the entire process. My case presented some complexity, and I was nervous at first, but after I spoke with her, I felt relieved and confident that my case is in good hands. Ms. Applegate is very knowledgeable and dedicated to her clients, and I’m highly recommending Ms. Applegate to anyone who needs help with their immigration dilemmas!

Best Immigration Attorney!!!!
I meet an attorney Applegate in October of 2014 while I was looking for the immigration attorney to file an application for the American citizenship. I was a green card holder at this time, and have a little daughter who is 8 years old, was born in the U.S., and is an American citizen. It was a long time dream for me to become a U.S. citizen, so I can be assured about my future with my daughter in the U.S. The immigration law is very complex and requires a lot of knowledge in order to achieve a positive outcome on your case. At this time I did not know anything about it and was very worry about the process. I also had some incident in my past and was extremely worry that it may prevent me from become an American citizen. Mrs. Applegate took time to explain me in details of what steps we will have to take, and what evidence we must collect and present to the immigration authorities in order for my naturalization application to be approved. Within a few weeks she was able to obtain all necessary documentation, filed my application, and took time to explain how I can prepare myself for the exam that is administered during the naturalization interview. She walked me through every step in the process, brining a comfort in my and my daughter lives. She took time in explaining what I need to do to achieve a positive outcome on my case, how to prepare myself for the interview and study for the civic and English test. She was very approachable and responsive to any concern that I had. I heard that naturalization process takes a lot of time and puts a lot of pressure, but it was not completely otherwise for me. My naturalization interview took place in January of 2015!!! Only four and half month from the first time I meet with attorney Applegate!!! I could not believe that!!! And I feel confident and prepared to go for the interview, thank you to Mrs. Applegate. The interview went smoothly, I passed all the tests easily and feel confident, because my attorney was there for me, answering all the questions that immigration officer has happened to have and make me feel comfortable and confident. As result my application was approved and I will be taken an oath in March of this year – on the day that I can proudly call myself an American citizen!!! It is such a relief to know that now there is nothing that could ever separate me from my sweet little daughter, who is a light of my life!!! She is so happy and proud for me, and we are looking forward to our bright future together!!!! I am very involved member of my church, and all the members of the church are so very excited for us!!!! We a so fortunate that we meet attorney Applegate who helped us to achieve our dream, and will always remain thankful for everything she have done for us. If you need knowledgeable, competent, honest, and reliable attorney, who truly cares about her clients and their lives, like you are her family do not look any further, contact attorney Applegate. She was an answer to our prayers and I can assure you will feel the same way if you trust your case to Mrs. Applegate.
