HIGHLY Recommend Omar Abuzir
From the beginning and throughout my immigration journey, Omar has been pleasant, professional, attentive, and put my mind at ease that I chose the right attorney to represent me. At no time did I feel that it was just about the money; which, is what I experienced when interviewing other attorneys. Omar always listened to me, responded promptly to my questions, and guided me every step of the way to the outcome/s I wanted. No stones were left unturned and Omar was first class at communicating with. Every call was answered and every email was responded to. Omar is a true professional and expert in his trade!

Omar is an outstanding immigration lawyer.He is very professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated!
If you are looking for a great immigration lawyer PLEASE, look no further! Omar Abuzir is truly amazing. Not only he is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in immigration field but he is super attentive and dedicated and will treat your case as his own. He is always available via email or phone, answers all the questions in details, and during meetings he is always prepared and will spend extra time with you. He is also available on Saturdays. My case was complicated but through his knowledge and perseverance, he got it approved. He will not just collect your money and forget about your case he will be in touch, guiding you through the whole process until full success. I am very glad I chose Omar as my lawyer and I highly recommend to use his services if you need help in your immigration process.

Great Help
I visited this man in his office and he was extremely well-mannered, polite, and most importantly helpful. He helped me file for my green card application and to my surprise I received it without an interview within four, yes you read it right, four months. I strongly recommend him.

Great lawyer!
We were referred to Omar by a family member. After consulting with a couple different lawyers we decided to go with Omar because he answered every single question we had in great detail which others did not. My husband now has his green card and we couldn't be any more grateful to have found Omar. He speaks spanish fluently, which is a plus for many people. You will not regret hiring him!
