Highly satisfied
I am so glad I contacted Ghazal Mehrani Law Firm to handle such a difficult immigration case like mine. Ghazal and her experince team won my case due to her excellent knowledge of immigration law. I would highly recommend A Good Immigration Attorney Like Ghazal! She is extremely knowledgeable and has a lot of experience. She was patient with me throughout my entire case, kept me updated at each step and answered all my questions. She always had a calm demeanor even when I was very nervous. And just in general the best Immigration Attorney. Thank you to you and your great team, I can't thank you enough.

Smart lawer
I have hired Ghazal for several complex immigration matters and every time she impressed me and my family with her outstanding knowledge and amazing work. Ghazal is super fast in replying her emails. Despite the fact that we are in different time zones, I never felt any distance as it seems she works 24/7. She is caring and treats you in a way that you feel you are her family. I recommend her to anyone who has complex immigration issues. She simply is the BEST!

Great lawyer, knowledgeable, professional, understanding, and responsive and friendly
Me and my wife ask Ghazal to help us according to a friend suggestion for our immigration status after we got disappointment from others lawyer who put a lot of unreliable suggestions for our status. 1-She is very knowledgeable to find the correct and best way. She Intelligently and confidently directed us to a correct and easy way to solve our problem instead several ways that were suggested by others!!! And finally, we wave the role 212e in on time when we just had very limited time to solve the problem!!! And that was vital for my job and family. 2- She was wonderfully helpful, understanding, and responsive. Her fee was fair, and She really was flexible for payment that was really helpful for my family in situation that I was in bad economically situation. 3- she is very professional in her carrier. the paperwork for work permission and travelling, done in on time and perfect way. We successfully received them. We still working wit her, she is not just as attorney, she is a family friend and I happy to work with her and really appreciated her that helped us in situations that was very vital for my family…

Excellent Immigration Attorney
My wife and I started working with Ms. Mehrani about two years ago in April 2018. At the time we had gotten into a difficult visa situation after my wife's change of status application got denied and left her without a legal status. While we consulted with many lawyers, she gave us the best advice and we decided to work with her to resolve the visa issue. Her excellent work helped us get a valid status for my wife. After that, in June 2019, we worked with her on our Green Card application. She filed our i485 in July 2019. In Feb 2020 she traveled to Atlanta to join us for the interview and went to great lengths to make sure that the officer was satisfied with the documents we provided (including travelling from downtown Atlanta to USCIS after the interview to personally hand the officer some extra documents she had asked us). And 3 weeks later in March 2020 our Green Card application got approved. Highly recommend her for immigration related services.

Employment base green card
I contacted Ghazal for my green card case which is recently denied. I asked her for a help and she instantly offered to talk and then she helped me with all my questions. She is very knowledgeable about the process and very friendly and patient with providing me information on how we need to proceed. I would suggest her if you need a lawyer.

Excellent Attorney: diligent, meticulous, and honest work
When I first contacted Ghazal, I was in a quite desperate situation: my OPT extension application has been denied and so I lost my job and I was also out of status. I needed to immediately file for my adjustment of status. She worked very quickly with me in preparing all the required material and we could file my application in 5 business days. She showed great care to the details in my application (e.g., she found missing pages in some of my documents, etc.). I have worked with two other immigration attorneys before, and I can honestly assert that she's produced the best practice I've anticipated from an immigration attorney. Now I've got my permanent residency and I thank Ghazal for all her helps. I highly recommend her.

Excellent Lawyer
My immigration case was somewhat complicated and I was extremely worried whether or not my case would be approved. Ghazal took her time to understand my concerns first and then suggested the appropriate means of handling the case. Her guidance was spot on and she worked really hard to fight for me. As a result, my case is approved. I would highly recommend Ghazal for her utmost care and appropriate guidance. She made sure that all information was timely submitted and we submit appropriate paperwork. I am happy to recommend Ghazal for her proven skills.

Great immigration attorney! Highly recommended!
We are so happy we hired Ghazal to help us with our family-based immigration case (1-130 petition + AOS). She is a professional, dedicated, reliable, and highly knowledgeable attorney. Ghazal patiently answered all my (many) emails and did a fantastic job in preparing the applications and assembling the required evidence. Unlike other attorneys I have worked with in the past, Ghazal put a lot of effort on our case and paid attention to all the details and made sure that everything was in perfect shape before sending them out to USCIS! The fees her firm charged us were fair too. In overall, we had a wonderful experience with Ms. Mehrani, and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Immigration
Ms. Mehrani did a great job and I am so pleased with her work. Her attention to details, responding in a timely manner, and keeping me up-to-date on my case was so much appropriated. Her knowledge about my immigration status within US in filling my case for marriage and my work was so good. Compare to previous attorneys that I spoke with, she has such a creative mind and such a positive attitude. I am happy to refer her to my friends and family.
