I met Christina in Summer 2011 when immigration denied our I-485. She challenged the decision and helped me to get approval in October 2011. But immigration denied our application again in April , 2012. Then she asked me to go to immigration court as an immigration judge would decide much more fairly than USCIS. After 4-year waiting for an immigration judge, finally we got permission to stay in the U.S in November 2016. The judge sent back our case to USCIS and today all of my family members get green cards. We started L/C process in 2003 so it takes 14 years to get green cards. During the long period , Christina was even-tempered, decisive, well-organized and warm-hearted. She gave me proper advice whenever I fell into despair. My family count on her. We will be with her as long as we need an immigration lawyer. We love you, Christina !

Christina worked very hard for us. She investigated my case very thoroughly and found things no others ever thought of. Thanks to her efforts my case was a success where others gave me no hope. My family and I will be forever Thankful for her

We hired Ms. Murdoch for our Adjustment of Status application based on our same sex marriage. We had been together for 18 years when DOMA was struck down and were eager to begin the process of getting a green card for my foreign born spouse. Ms. Murdoch demonstrated a very thorough knowledge of immigration law and was very responsive to all of our questions. She returned e-mails and phone calls promptly, provided complete and thorough answers to my many legal questions, did a good job explaining all of our options, and presented a very convincing written legal argument to USCIS on our behalf. Our application was approved and my spouse now is a Legal Permanent Resident.
Immigration law is extremely complex and should not be attempted by a layperson. Definitely contact Christina Murdoch to assist you on your immigration needs.
