Fantastic Job
My wife and I hired Kendra to help with my K1 visa all the way through to my eventual citizenship. She made the whole process seamless and personal. It is quite clear she is deeply invested in her clients. She was always available and reassuring. I would highly recommend her services to any future clients. Not only did we gain an attorney, but we have also now gained a friend.

Outstanding Human and Immigration Attorney
It was an absolute pleasure working with Kendra and her team in the past 5 years on my successful petitions to obtain Permanent Residency (including Removal of Conditions on PR) and eventually Citizenship. Kendra gained my full trust with her professionalism, experience, knowledge and compassion at our very first meeting. Her plan of action and approach to the matter was simply excellent and it gave me huge comfort knowing that I had Kendra on my side during this process. My case was a tricky one from the start and it got even more complex when I was faced with a federal tax issue during the pending petitions. Kendra is a fantastic immigration attorney and human and I would highly recommend her to anybody who is looking for the best representation. Looking forward to working with Kendra and her team for future petitions for my family.

Helped me obtain Permanent Resident Status
Me & my wife would like to thank Kendra for assisting us with all the legal papers and legal information that we have to go through. Kendra always answered our questions quickly and always replied to emails quickly. She made our case smooth and comfortable for us. She was nice, professional and reassuring when we were nervous or worried! Obviously we obtained the Permanent Resident Card! Thank You so much Kendra! Definitely recommend her to everybody that has an immigration case/problem.

The best immigration lawyer
After spending over 2-1/2 years working with a different law firm and nothing happening. My wife and I searched for another law firm. We were so lucky to find Kendra to help us with our immigration case. It was no time at all that we were getting results and our case was finally moving forward. Kendra was always available to answer questions and to be there to support my wife through this very difficult case. Kendra helped my wife feel so much more relaxed in meetings and the court room. We couldn't have hoped for a better person to get us through our case. We have already and will always recommend Kendra to anyone that is in need of an immigration lawyer no matter how big or how small their case may be. If you are looking for the best immigration lawyer in Chicago look no further. My wife and I can't thank Kendra enough for her kindness, understanding and all of the hard work she put in to get us through the difficult times with the immigration system.
