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.

I paid $150 for consultations and he did not tell me anything new, just general information which already read in USCIS.
I came to learn a possible way to go with my immigration case and he said that it's impossible.
He'd like to take just easy cases, (such as if a US citizen wants to get green card his parents or if someone marries with US citizens ) which everybody can do without the lawyer.
I regret that I paid him for nothing.

So I found Mr. Davidson after I was denied by asylum officer and they sent me to the court. My case is complex and complicated, but 15 minutes was enough for him, to find mistakes of my previous attorney and understand my story. He is not the cheapest lawyer you will find, but every cent you will pay to him will be paid off, believe me!! Mark was very honest right from beginning and generally he is a nice guy.

A lawyer myself, and having worked with recruiting lawyers in Chicago for more than 20 years and therefore having access to many sources of information, there is no question that Mark Davidson is the Dean of the Chicago immigration bar. The many recommendations I initially received of him, were confirmed in four years of working with him to bring my wife back to the United States in obtaining first a green card and then a waiver of the 10 year statutory bar. You are in excellent hands with Mark Davidson, however inhumane and frustrating the U.S. immigration laws may be. Unlike some immigration lawyers in Chicago he does not gouge his clients on fees. His fees were reasonable to a fault. He has a great team working with him. I recommend him extremely highly.

Used Davidson & Schiller for changing status to Conditional Resident, then Permanent Resident and eventually US Citizen. Since they are in downtown Chicago, their office was easily accessible. They helped me go through the process with ease and answered any questions I had. I did had some hiccups in my case (USCIS fault), however they kept on top of things to make sure the case won't get affected. They sometimes have latency in their replies, but eventually do get back to you. Other than that, you can't go wrong with them.

I come to him one month before my green card's lottery deadline and thanks to his professionalism I got it in time. Other lawyers said it is impossible to do anything with my case to be successful, well Mark this seemingly impossible case made possible.

I have hired Mark few yrs ago to bring my daughter from Republic of Georgia. He did what other lawers didn't even knew was possible and got my daughter in US in no time. And now he also handled my immigration case with great knowledge and proffecion and got me a green card when I thought I would of been deported. Thank you Mark. I would recommend Mark Davidson to anyone who is looking for a good attorney, becouse I know how hard it is to find one who gets job done.

Awesome lawyer with awesome staff! I found him on this website when I needed a second opinion about my temporary Green Card (when my first so-called lawyer messed up my case and had me apply for a waiver that he did not even filled properly and to top it of I found from Mr. Mark Davidson I DID NOT NEED- that put my case on hold for 1 YEAR) . I fired my 1st lawyer and I hired Mr. Mark Davidson and in 3 WEEKS, thanks to Mark, I had my Green Card in my hand. Mr. Mark Davidson and all his staff were VERY PROFESSIONAL, ,patience,worth my TOTAL TRUST,easy to communicate and get in touch with,affordable rates and I could continue with the praise forever! That is the reason why I ask him to represent me again for my permanent Green Card last year and I will continue that this year when I'm going to apply for citizenship! My advise to anybody looking for an immigration lawyer: Do not make the same mistake that I did when I hired my first so-called lawyer :from the money point a view.I was told by my friends that lawyer form downtown are more expensive and they all do the same! NOT TRUE!!! My 1st layer ended up charging me much more than Mr. Davidson!
I am going to be grateful all my life to Mr. Mark Davidson and all his staff :especially Mrs.Olga, Mrs. Yllca !
