Very helpful and a pleasure to work with
KiKi was just who we needed. She was helpful throughout the whole process - always ready to jump on a call if need be and very quick to respond to questions via email. She knows the ins and outs of US immigration - knowing many of the officers at the downtown USCIS building by name. She is patient and hard working - would definitely recommend!

Excellent lawyer amazing person ! Highly recommended!
Atty. Kiki M Mosley was a pleasure to work with. She would quickly provide answers to my questions and insight to other things I didn't know of. She also took the time to answer my email , phone calls when I had some additional questions about our case which assured me that she's dependable. She is very knowledgeable and organized our information accordingly and thoroughly. Kiki put a lot of time and effort for our case to be processed quickly I'm so thankful and blessed for everything she did to get my husband green card approved! In less than 6 months!!! For now he got gc for 2 yrs couse we married less than 6 months we will apply for 10 yrs one after 1,5 year that’s our next step And goal . We met her on May 1 st two weeks after she collected all information sent our application. I think it was hard for her to understand us due to our English is a second language and it was barrier of communication specially with my husband who dosent speak English well . She make sure we understand her well and she explained everything so clearly . She took some time and look wisely to find us polish interpreter for our practice before interview and also on the day of interview. I highly recommend her as a immigration lawyer . We already asked her to representative us for next step which it will be for 10 yrs green card and than for citizenships for my husband. I can’t imagine do all this without her !!!! Kiki once again thank you for everything you had done for us , being part of our journey and helping us to get my husband green card so quickly. We couldn’t ask for better gift for Christmas.

Awesome Lawyer!
I have never met a more resilient and persistent lawyer like Kiki. She fought for me until I got my residency. Kiki knows what she's doing and she genuinely cares for her clients. She's a hard worker with a heart for justice. I remember when she went out of her way to look for files that were over 20 years old just for me. There are very few people in the field who represent their clients with a sincere desire to help those who are in need and rightfully deserve justice. I am forever grateful for Kiki and her staff. Their hard work and dedication to my case gave me a second change in life.

A STAR in immigration laws
The day my spouse and I decided to hire Kiki , we knew she was the right attorney to handle our case! She was so helpful and quickly understood the special circumstances surrounding our situation! The path to my spouse’s citizenship was very long and complicated, but Kiki was there every step of the way ; answering all of our questions and concerns all the time! Kiki Mosley is a very special Attorney that fights aggressively to win, and refuses defeat for just cases! We are so grateful that she was by our side throughout the way!

Kind and meticulous
My husband and I hired KiKi to assist us with the green card process. Not only was she accommodating of different time zones and travel through Skype meetings, but also she was personable and professional always. She would make calls to verify all paperwork was being processed if we did not hear back in a timely manner from USCIS, caught clerical mistakes in paperwork filed by outside sources, and was always reachable through email or phone. KiKi is extremely careful and attentive and we would highly recommend her!

Exceptional support in K1 Processing
KiKi’s savviness in navigating the visa process (particularly in a difficult political climate) was a lifesaver for us. Her candid style in advising and execution created a solid environment of trust, and we can’t imagine having gone through the process without her expertise. She does truly important work, and she does it with sincere compassion and dedication for her clients.

The most professional attorney I’ve ever worked with.
She was my attorney in asylum case. I’m really impressed by her professionalism and responsibility. She prepares everything that is needed in proper way and on time. After applying, I got an approval in few months. I’m really glad to have a chance to work with Kiki. I strongly recommend her.

Honest, Knowledgeable, Responsive- Highly recommend
We officially hired KiKi in 2016 and am thankful to say ended in early April 19' with my husband obtaining permanent resident status. Throughout the entire process she was extremely knowledgeable, quick to respond, supportive, had reasonable fees, pleasant to be be around, and just as important- honest. I would recommend KiKi in an instant! My husband had 2 prior drug-related charges that made him ineligible to apply for permanent residence in the US. We got married in 2013 and were advised by a trusted immigration firm to expunge these charges and apply...which was wrong. When we were ready (or at least thought) to begin the process (after paying 500$ to expunge these records) in 2014, we scheduled a consultation with KiKi based on her online reviews. That consultation rocked our world as she informed us that the original advice we received was wrong and the true steps required, which included working with a criminal lawyer to vacate the 2 charges. 2 years later we were blessed to have both charges vacated and were finally able to apply. Although this overall process was longer than we expected, we are thankful we chose KiKi!

New citizen of the US!
My husband and I found Kiki's Offices some years ago in a random search on google. We wanted to obtain resident status. She guided us through all stages in the US and my country of origin, filling all the paperwork, sending us timely updates, solving problems and keeping track of the huge amount of documents. She got everything under control. Efficient and kind communication, that is her best. In a few days, I will take my oath to become a citizen. I'm sad because she won't be there, because we know we couldn't have done it without her.

Ms. Kiki Mosley is simply an amazing attorney! You will not regret hiring her!
I have to start by saying that I have never written a review for anyone before, but I just had to write one for Ms. Kiki Mosley. My husband and I feel so blessed that we were able to find her thanks to the research that we conducted prior to hiring her. As soon as we read the amazing reviews she has, we called to schedule a consultation. From the start, she proved to be an efficient and effective attorney. We loved that she always communicated with us in a timely manner regarding all the immigration notices that we received from USCIS. She is definitely a direct attorney and will tell you things as they are. In our opinion, this is one of the most important qualities an attorney should have. Thanks to Ms. Mosley my husband was able to get his green card in less than a year. We felt at ease that she was able to go with us to the immigration interview. Even the immigration officer seemed to be impressed with how well-organized she had all of our paperwork. Ultimately, we are happy to recommend her to anyone that is seeking immigration advice. She is certainly the go-to attorney.

Great support during the naturalization process
Kiki was an excellent support and guidance throughout the naturalization process. All the way from the consulting services and reviewing the case to the oath ceremony - she was understanding, knowledgeable, direct and responsive to any requests and/or questions. Highly recommend her services.

AMAZING!
I hired KiKi in November of 2015 right before my husband and I got married. She was very thorough with what the immigration process would be like and her payment plan was perfect for my budget. When I left the USA for my wedding, KiKi made sure I was prepared with the initial paperwork for my husband to sign to get the process rolling. Since then, it was smooth sailing. Every time KiKi received correspondence from USCIS, she contacted me immediately, via email to ask if I had received anything and if not, to follow back with her when I did. While, my process was quite lengthy, KiKi was extremely patient with me through out the whole process. She responded within hours, if not, minutes every time I emailed her. KiKi made sure we were very well prepared for both interviews, as she did not want anything to slow down our process any longer. She provided us with copies of everything she mailed to USCIS so that we were aware of where we were at with the process. KiKi is very knowledgeable of immigration laws. I could not have done any of this with out her help! My husband and I can not thank her enough.

Amazing immigration attorney!
We hired Kiki to help with our immigration case. She was very helpful and thorough every step of the way and always made sure we had everything we needed on time. Throughout the process, we asked her a LOT of questions and she was always very patient and clear with us. When came the time for our immigration interview, she met with us the day before and prepared us for every question and scenario - she also attended the interview with us. My case was officially approved the same week and I had my green card and SSN in hand about days after. We 100% recommend Kiki to anyone and will definitely work with her again when the time comes to renew my paperwork.
