We couldn’t have been happier with the help and assistance we have received from Mark every step of the way during our immigration process. We have had two different large immigration firms representing us prior to Mark, neither one of which was able to be nearly as creative in finding solutions in tricky and complex immigration case, nor as dedicated. From our initial meeting with Mark, he was very diligent, but also straight up and fair about what our possibilities are, and for the first time since we started our process we felt like we were being in good hands. He gave us precise directions and always set realistic expectations, with a good strategy in place but without making false promises, which was refreshing. We went through J-visa process, H1B applications, permanent residency application and through each one of these processes we felt like Mark and Leigh always had a back-up plan in case something didn’t work out, within the limits of the law, and there was always specific guidance on their part, which we were missing with all of our previous representatives. We feel beyond happy and also fortunate that we had an attorney who through his thoughtful and dedicated approach, helped us reach a permanent residency status in relatively very short period of time. I would sincerely recommend Mark to everyone seeking detail oriented, knowledgeable, experience and yet carrying attorney to represent them in their immigration case.

As soon as the Supreme Court declared the Defense of Marriage Act to be Unconstitutional in 2013, I contacted Mark Davidson to request Residency for my spouse. Davidson and Schiller worked efficiently as a team to guide me through all the steps (the I-130, the Hardship Waiver I601, and finally, the Consulate Interview. This was a nerve wracking time for me and my spouse and I was so nervious when we went to Juarez to have the interview with the consulate. I was so worried that the Consular staff wouldn't like something in the paperwork that we had prepared and they would reject my petition and my husband wouldn't come home. As it turned out, Mark's team had followed all the steps in the process perfectly, they gave us a package of paperwork arranged exactly as the consular personnel wanted, and he received his visa within a week. I give Mark Davidson 5 stars and I have already recommended him to many of my friends, including my co-worker Tom Bloom, who brought his son Sam to Davidson where he successfully got his wife's green card. I can't say enough about how thoughtful, organized, and efficient, the services of Davidson and Schiller were and I will continue to recommend them to anybody who asks.

The least I can do is to provide a fair review. My journey to the States was very easy thanks to Mark. He worked on my visa two years ago - it was approved within a month. In July 2016 Mark accepted to take my case for perm residency. Mark and his assistant Leigh, much obliged, have been more than helpful to me in a stressful time where a new administration has been taking over and the uncertainty for immigrants is growing. Mark, thank you very much. I have been recommending Mark to anyone seeking a phenomenal lawyer's advise and help.
