Outstanding and Honest Professiona;
I approached Mr. Bachmeier back in 2017 with my case which involved immigration and an incident back in 2013. He advised me on different options we could approach to lead to a favorable outcome for me. He was quite truthful, and honest and responded promptly to all my emails and inquiries. He encouraged me to be patient and eventually his efforts helped me attain my naturalization without any issues. I vouch for Mr. Bachmeier and I encourage anyone to hire him. He does not overcharge for his services and is a man of his word.

If patience was an actual person.
Gregory Bachmeier was a beacon of hope to me at a time when my options appeared limited and seemed impossible. I hired Gregory Bachmeier to help out with my complicated issue and without any hesitation he took my case. Not only was he able to defend me but reinstated my honor from an abusive relationship. I am so grateful for what he did. Me and my family are eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Gregory Bachmeier without reservation. Thank you, Greg!

Greg was recommended to me by another individual and from the first day we met up until the case (immigration) was resolved he was honest and told me exactly what to expect. He is an excellent attorney and will go through the entire process with you. From submitting your application to notification to going to the interview with you. If you need an attorney (immigration) who is compassionate about their work and knows their job he is the one! Thank you again Greg!

Five Star Immigration Lawyer
Greg was my immigration lawyer for citizenship application. He was honest and direct. Answered all questions promptly and effectively. All costs were clearly delineated ahead of time, zero surprise costs or confusion. Greg did exactly as promised and helped me to understand every step of the process, including USCIS processing delays related to covid. I was anxious about the process; particularly my final interview. Greg was patient and reassuring. All while maintaining appropriate professional boundaries. Prospective female clients will appreciate knowing that Greg is a safe male. I attended my appointments alone and always felt comfortable. Thanks to Greg, I am now a happy citizen of the USA!!! As my lawyer, Greg obviously did not make the citizenship decision (USCIS) but he was an excellent guide for the process. I am forever grateful and highly recommend him to my fellow immigrants, whether you're at the beginning of your journey or approaching the final hurdle. Best of luck!

Best Immigration Attorney
When I was first introduced to Greg, I had my doubts because he didn't talk much. But on a second thought I decided to hire him. What he does is, he makes sure all your documents are intact before he files for your case. I had just met a man I loved so much so we got married and I decided to stay in the United States. We met Greg, hires him and he filed for my permanent residence permit. In short, Greg answers email promptly and solve whatever problem you have on the table. All you need to do is to listen to him and be patient ( Very Important) My card was received on time with interview waived. I will recommend him to the world. Keep it up,GREG!

Excellent support applying for US citizenship
Greg was very good to work with helping me navigate the steps of applying for my family's US citizenship. It was evident that he knows all the correct steps. I was expecting it to take 12-14 months to become a US citizen but it only took less than 10 months. I would highly recommend Greg.

Permanent residency process
From the initial consultation to finalizing my permanent residence in the USA, Gregory Bachmeier was professional throughout and gave us confidence in his abilities in what is a lengthy, bureaucratic process. My advice for anyone who is going through an immigration quagmire is get a lawyer and if possible talk to Gregory.

Professional, Attentive and Excellent
Greg, is a fantastic attorney. He’s calm, collective and highly intelligent. He knows the laws and takes pride in his work with every client. He separates himself from the other attorneys in this field due to his fair pricing, his exceptional follow up, “ my emails were all personally answered by him within the same day” and he doesn’t push you off to other staff members. He personally works with you and sees the save through until the very end. We have used multiple attorneys through our 10 year journey and he is by far the best. I highly recommend Greg and if choose to give him a call, it will be the best decision you ever made. Thanks Greg, my family and I truly appreciate you and you’re flawless work.

Citizenship and Naturalization
Gregory helped me get all the correct paperwork that I needed, and straightened out my records to reflect accurately. He made sure all paperwork was filled out properly and was able to provide everything the courts asked for. This was a 13 month process, and in the end my citizenship was accomplished. I highly recommend Gregory.
