I was referred to Elaine to obtain legal help after my young son was taken-- internationally and wrongully retained. She discussed the Hague Convention, passport(s), immigration issues and consequences, and also worked with my family law attorney. Thanks to her efforts, I have my young son back in the United States, and I will have my rights to see him grow up. She understood, focused and kept on track with what the goals would be and how to accomplish them.

I had Elaine as a lawyer for a quite bit time now working on my Asylum case. The experience we had from our case wasn't usual . It was very competitive, stressful for her and me , full of surprise and sometimes full of negative answers but most of all something new for me because it was my first case . Elaine was there when i needed her all the time on time.she even made me smile by her joke to make me comfortable. She is a pretty good , experimented, focus , loyal and the honest person i have never seen in my life since i am here. For that i am thankful to her and admire her sens of humanity because she put people first and not money first even if we all know she get paid for what she is working on. she is open, friendly , helpful , reliable , a hard worker but most of all she got a great heart .
i will have a lot more to say but not enough space so i cut in the throat now .Just to say that she helped me stay in the usa while there were trouble in my country and left my parents and siblings home between threats, fear, violence even death. Today was my trial date and a miracle happened again due of all the support , her assistance as a lawyer and her extremely faith . I have been granted for 3 years of staying+ a employment authorization from the judge . I am very blessed to have her as a lawyer and recommend her . i remember she told me before we went to court to pray and made me prepare correctly so i won't be nervous, she believed in me i did believe in her too and God help us go through the storm . Now the storm is over.
Thank you Elaine may God bless you more and your life .
For all person out there who may need her help just know that this job as any job is not easy specially when you have people lives in your hand as a lawyer , a life to live by yourself with your obligations so you have to be thankful and do all you can to help the lawyer back since she helped you first ( I saw her hard working so i know)

Elaine helped us process a marriage green card case two years ago. When we met her for an initial consultation, we immediately noticed that she was very knowledgeable and experienced about the entire process. Her professionalism and courtesy was extended throughout the process and she treated our case as if it was her own.
Even though she did not have to, she showed up to our court date and prepped us before the interview. She knew all of the tips to get the case processed quickly and efficiently. Elaine even called us two years after she handled our case to remind us to file paperwork to lift the condition on the green card!
Elaine is a very responsive, professional, and reliable lawyer. I would definitely use her again and would recommend others to as well!!

I endorse this lawyer without any hesitation. We belong to Dakota-Minnesota Chapter of American Immigration Lawyers Association and I have been communicating with Elaine by e-mail exchanges. She has been more than willing to provide valuable advice and relevant legal citations, when I sought inputs from my colleagues for a few new immigration related issues came up in my practice. She seems to be very thorough, considerate, and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend Elaine to anybody who needs immigration related legal assistance.
