I called Alan Barry Goldfarb for advises or free consultation before I could finish he cuts me of and tells me in a rude manner I can't help you and hangs up on me. I do not recommend him very rude

Mr. Goldfarb represented me in my immigration case. My experiences with previous immigration lawyers have been frustrating for the most part (with some exceptions) - I've come away from those experiences feeling like these attorneys have more important cases than mine. My experience with Mr. Goldfarb has been a markedly different one. The key positives are that he is proactive with your case, keeps you informed about proceedings before you have to ask him and has no problems spending time with you to answer your questions and concerns. He is also very reasonable with pricing and does not nickel and dime you. I've also found that he takes a practical approach when he talks to you - in an industry where it's easy to to just throw the book at you, he has been open to discussing different options and approaches and think about problems from the client's side. I will go back to him for my immigration needs in a heart beat.

Alan is very patient in answering all the questions you would have during a permanent residency process, we also had him renew my H1-B visa several times under special cases. Although mine was randomly selected for audit, Alan provided sound advice on how to handle it and handled it well. Although Alan is hired by my company I always felt that he is working for my best interest too. Alan is always approachable and would take time to listen your concerns and address it. Like the title suggest Alan is Polite, Dependable and Trustworthy!

I have known Alan for several years and have appreciated the opportunity to collaborate informally on occasion during that time. He has an outstanding reputation among immigration lawyers, for knowledge of the law, diligence, and integrity. He has a diverse practice - I know he handles complex employment-based matters like J-1 waivers for physicians and also works with a wide range of issues for employers, like H-1Bs and L-1s and labor certifications. He also works on family-based immigration and removal proceedings. He and his law partner Michael Davis have a very successful I-601 waiver practice for Mexicans. I endorse this lawyer.
