We hired Scott and his team to obtain Green Cards for myself, my wife and family, after another lawyer had advised me we would not even be able to make an application for at least a year. Scott was the personification of efficiency and kindness, backed up by a superb admin team. We got our Green Cards remarkably quickly, with clear advice at every point of the process. We would recommend him unhesitatingly to anyone needing advice on immigration matters.

I had my first consultation with Mr. Pollock a couple of years ago after meeting with other immigration lawyers both in Illinois and in California (where I currently live). Mr. Pollock was the first lawyer who was honest about the intricacies and inherent difficulties of my case. In his explanations he demonstrated a keen understanding of immigration law and a realistic perspective of the ramifications that my case could potentially have.
My wife and I decided to move forward in hiring Mr. Pollock. After we hired him, we both were utterly impressed with his professionalism and that of his legal assistant (Ms. Markasovic). Both of them made the processes of filling out the different immigration forms and gathering all the supporting documentation very easy. At every point of this journey both of them were available and they addressed all of our questions promptly and courteously. Also their attention to detail was very helpful because many of these forms could be very overwhelming to fill out.
If anyone is interested in finding a good lawyer I would encourage this person to look carefully at Mr. Pollock's work and gather a perspective of his career as he has a breadth of experience and a sincere desire to help the immigrant community. An anecdote will demonstrate what I am referring to. Prior to my interview with USCIS I asked Mr. Pollock why he decided to practice immigration instead of a type of law where there is more money. He explained to me that he decided to do this kind of law after seeing all the human rights violations in countries like Guatemala as well as the human toll that immigrant communities have experienced because of the broken immigration system. Mr. Pollock's answer confirmed to me that I not only hired a good lawyer but one who had a humane perspective of the plight of the immigrants who try to make it through this maze that is our current immigration system.
Overall I felt very happy to have Mr. Pollock as counsel and I definitely recommend him.

I am very very grateful to Scott, Linda and to his Law Firm for all the time and assistance they gave me during this process of immigration and naturalization. First, by applying and acquiring my R-1 Visa, my Permanent Residence and then, my Naturalization as a citizen of the United States. I felt very confident all along thanks to their professional work, for being present with me in paper and in person at every moment.
The Interview day for my Naturalization and the day of the Oath Ceremony will always be very memorable to me. A special ‘Thank You’ to Scott for coming to the Interview and for being there with me during my test with the USCIS official, a very crucial moment. It was a day full of emotions, nervousness, but I made it.
Becoming a US citizen for me is and will always be a very significant event in my life, not only for myself and those who depend on me, but especially because of the up-coming federal elections of this year. I feel deeply obliged to vote and I will do it conscientiously.
I honestly do not find sufficient words to thank both of you enough for all the hard work, always very professional, on time, patient and effective. I simply cannot think of any other attorney better than Scott D. Pollock and Associates.
From the bottom of my heart! May God bless you always!

I was refer to Mr. Scott Pollock when I did not have my green card. Replacing it, became a next to impossible task since i had no other forms of identification at the time. I had gone through various refugee assistance programs with no success and had real difficulty affording the related costs, including that associated with retaining an immigration lawyer. Being jobless, I could do little to afford the necessary services, whether transportation costs or, again, costs associated with adequate and affective representation. Mr. Pollock and his firm took it upon themselves to secure my green card and citizenship papers. Though I paid processing costs, I was not charged for his services; he hoped I would be sure to similarly pass along some kind of substantive assistance in the future. Seeing me as one who would be quick to benefit the country in several ways, he kindly afforded transparent, consistent, and honorably effective service. Mr. Pollock's service has been an urgent help but it has been more. It has been an inspiration toward other-focused participation in the Best of my adoptive society; he is an example of the best our society offers. Thank you so much for your help :)

Scott and his team helped me through the years, first with obtaining my H1-B, then with obtaining my Green Card successfully. He and his staff were always responsive and professional. They were even flexible enough to do meetings via Skype when I was living overseas for a few years. I always felt that I was in good hands. I could not have done it without their help!

Mr. Pollock assisted my immigrant partner (now spouse) for 15-plus years through complex processes of obtaining his H-1 Visa, Employment Certification, and permanent residency-- overseeing a successful outcome to our marriage petition and my husband's Green Card in 2015. Along the way, we took his Adjustment Petition as far as the BIA. Mr. Pollock's arguments were well-reasoned and clear based on the law, and he explained everything thoroughly and clearly to us. He and legal assistant Maria Hernandez are eminently qualified, thorough and understanding.

Mr. Pollock is an amazing lawyer who was always available when I had any questions or concerns. He helped me through my immigration nightmare and never gave up. I had been to numerous lawyers prior to meeting Mr. Pollock and he was the only one who gave me a positive response. Mr. Pollock worked with me for 3 years and helped me through the entire process of avoiding deportation and gaining my citizenship. I would recommend Mr. Pollock to anyone who has an immigration issue.

Scott D. Pollock & Associates helped me with my DACA application. They put together an impressive packet to send in along with my application. They answered all my questions promptly and kept me posted on my case. Even though our communication was via email and mail I experienced great customer service. I would recommend this firm over and over again.

I am very happy to have met Scott D. Pollock. He and his team are extremely efficient, responsible, and supportive. I read many stories of how painful, long, and time consuming the process of getting a green card was. Having Scott on my side was nothing like those stories. He made the process very easy, told me what forms needed to be filled and submitted, and removed a lot of stress off my shoulders. Shortly after my application was reviewed and submitted by Scott and his team, I received a provisional permit that allowed to me travel abroad - which was a big concern for me, for professional and personal reasons.
The experience and knowledge of Scott really shows. He is professional, honest, and very respected among his peers. Those credentials gave me so much confidence about the future of my immigration status. He was very supportive during the whole process, and by following his instructions the process went extremely smoothly. After about 9 months since the initial application I received my green card.
Scott D. Pollock is a great lawyer, very reliable, and efficient. I totally recommend him. If I had to do the green card process again, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to choose Scott D. Pollock and Associates.
