Excellent Immigration Lawyer
I was confused, frustrated, and hopeless until I came in contact with Kwao. Whenever I met with Kwao, I felt hopeful that my situation could improve. He was very patient in listening to me. He asked me questions to understand the history of my case, and then finally guided me from there on. I recognized he really understood the law and knew exactly what to do in most situations. I started to feel more connected and comfortable to talk to him about anything. I would go to him for any and everything that relates to immigration, as I knew he would find an answer and I trusted his judgment. It is very difficult to find an immigration lawyer like this, so I would refer Kwao to anybody without reservations. He stuck with me to the end and now I finally feel peaceful that I have what seemed impossible all these years.

Excellent Immigration Lawyer
Mr. Amegashie is a true gentleman. He is very knowledgeable in his field and provides timely communications and great advice. I hired him for my green card process which turned out to be a complicated matter. He was there with me through the entire ordeal and even fielded off unnecessary questions during the interview process. Thanks to him I received my green card. He’s the lawyer you want on your corner during your immigration process.

Hardest Working and Honest Immigration Lawyer
My dealings with Mr. Kwao Amegashie started approximately since 2002 when I needed him to work on my green card application and later my citizenship. He has always been extremely responsive and always delivered on what he said he'd do. He has gone the extra mile when needed even if it went beyond what he actually billed me for. With his unique background, his has exceptional insight and knowledge of what is needed for the most efficient path through any immigration related process. If your situation is going to prove difficult, if not impossible, you'll get an honest assessment from him so that realistic expectations are established. I have gladly referred friends to him over the years. I count him as a friend and lawyer and appreciate all he did to help me achieve my immigration goals. Thank you Mr. Amegashie!
