Best immigration lawyer we had (successfully obtain green cards)
Matthew Scott Kriezelman came highly recommended from my company’s external immigration counsel (one of the bigger law firms). We contacted him for consultation regarding my and my wife’s green card case, which was being dragged on beyond the usual processing time. I was at a very crucial moment of my career and was hoping to move across states to live with my wife. Since I was based in Chicago at that time, I set up an in-person initial consultation (with my wife on the phone) and immediately, we could tell he would be the right lawyer for us. Not only did he take time to listen to our situation, he was very kind and understanding. He made us feel at ease by explaining the facts and our potential solutions we could pursue. He initially proposed a solution which we were not even aware was possible (which eventually worked like a charm!). Throughout the next 3-4 months, we would randomly engage him once we got updates on our cases. He’s always responsive and tries his best to make time for quick phone calls. His reassuring demeanor was always very calming for me and my wife. Fast forward a few months later, we finally got our green card interview scheduled, mostly thanks for Matt’s proposed solution, and we successfully obtained both our green cards soon after. We have since moved to another state for work but am forever grateful to Matthew for his excellent advice and work. Oh, last but not least, his legal fees were extremely reasonable and we are also grateful for that. Keep up the great work, Matthew! To conclude, I would highly recommend his immigration legal services if you ever need them. Hands down the best immigration lawyer we had (and I did consult a few others during the initial lawyer search).

Immigration Lawyer
I sought the help of attorney Matt Kriezelman on an immigration case very important to me and my family. Every minute of working with him was an absolute pleasure. Not only did Matt meet with me for every single question and concern that I had (and I had very many) , but he did so on several occasions even after his business hours were over. He has helped me understand every paper that he filed, every law that would apply to our case and every single problem that we might encounter. Needless to say, every problem that we did encounter, Matt resolved effortlessly, or at least he made it seem effortless. He spent countless hours on our case and we just purchased my aunt's one way ticket to the United States from Serbia, which compelled me to write this review. My family will forever be grateful to Matt Kriezelman for taking on our case and uniting us.
