A one star is even too good for this place. On my first visit I was received by Mr D.Ahlgren who i explain my case to. He then passed me on to my would be lawyer. This lawyer has no knowledge of immigration law come to think of it I knew more about the law than she did. They did not even send the paperwork which we paid for, they just scammed us out our money. Save your the time. Do Not Waste your Money there. My case was later denied because they did not send in the paperwork. I am now in the process of filing a suit.

I set up an appointment with Ahlgren's office, and was attended by an associate, who didn't know how to solve my problem. After that, I supposedly became and was considered a client of their Firm.
Later on, as a follow up of my case, I requested to be received by Mr. Ahlgren himself (as I had expected in my first appointment), and discuss my case with him. In the beginning, he treated me in a correct manner, but far from answering my questions (about a not so complicated immigration process), he became very negative, almost telling me that there was no possibility to get a waiver and change of status (I wasn't and I'm not an illegal alien by the way, I was then under a visa). The case looked desperate from what he said.
I was naturally very surprised by this news and became very distress.
Before leaving his office I wanted to recapitulate all we had talked about, to have my ideas organized, and he told me in a very rude way that he would only tell me once again, and opened the door, as inviting me to leave,and telling me where I should make the payment.
He also told me he would keep contact and follow up my case, and call me. He never contacted me. Of course, after that experience I looked for second opinions and started the process on my own, with very positive results.
In summary, besides his unacceptable manners, he either just wanted to make the case go on and on and make more money in the process, or had no idea about my specific case, a simple one that I did eventually make work successfully on my own.
