We had a very difficult case. Top lawyers in Chicago said they could not help. Nancy took the case and made it happen. Surprisingly, she is not after money.

Excellent immigration attorney, and amazing human being
Nancy did a fantastic job with our green card case! She helped us through the entire process, from filing all of the necessary paperwork to preparing for the interview. When we encountered unreasonable delays, Nancy tenaciously fought for a favorable resolution. Nancy and her entire team are knowledgeable, professional, and kind. In our emails, phone calls, and Zoom meetings, it was clear that we were dealing with an expert who genuinely cares about her clients. We cannot imagine going through this process without Nancy in our corner. We will need to file additional paperwork in the coming years, so there is no question that we will rely on the Nancy Vizer law firm in the future. We encourage any individuals, couples, or families with immigration-related legal needs to call Nancy--you will not be disappointed!

One of the best Immigration Attorneys in US
I had a very complicated Immigration case I dealt with for almost 9 years.I was facing a permanent bar from all visa petitions. My first Attorney went MIA when USCIS sent me an initial NOID.I then retained one of the most rated Immigration Attorneys in Dallas and this Attorney responded to the NOID with only one page.No legal citation of any form or shape. When I saw it, I told her I am disappointed because I would have done a better job responding myself. I was shocked to see her on a Local Magazine front page as the best Immigration Attorney in Dallas. Fast Forward during a Google search, I came across a case Nancy won (Valdivia v. Barr). I read the complaint she filed with Federal District Court and reached out to her immediately to become my second Attorney. During my consultation with her, she listened to me, told me what to expect, gave me hope and peace of mind. She agreed to team up with my Primary Attorney and fought my immigration battle for me. It was a long hard fought battle but they won my case. Many Attorneys told me it’s impossible to ever win my case but I am now a Permanent Resident! Btw everything happened exactly in the sequence she predicted.

Highly Recommend!
Nancy Vizer is the absolute best immigration attorney I have ever met. Before working with Nancy my husband and I spoke to two other attorneys that told me my case was next to impossible and it was unlikely I would be able to adjust my status. Nancy gave me very different answer and for the first time in a long time I had hope. She took a very complicated case and turned it into an absolute successful. I truly believe that if it was not for her expertise and absolute drive to do what's best for her clients I would still be dealing with my case. I will forever be grateful to Nancy and her team for giving me the peace of mind I could only dream of. Do yourself a favor and call Nancy today!

Excellent lawyer and team
I had a pleasant experience with Nancy and her team in my journey from H1B (H4 for the wife) to Green Card in just over 1 year. We went through the NIW pathway and ultimately achieved my goal in becoming a permanent resident. The whole team is absolutely professional, they always returned my calls or took my calls immediately, answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns. They never complained or showed impatience, they were always respectful and listened to me. I recommend Nancy and her group for all your legal needs, especially immigration issues. Thank you.

Nancy Marcia Vizer is an outstanding and absolutely one of the best in the field of immigration law, based on my experience. I recently got my Green Card approved with her, through National Interest Waiver (NIW). Throughout the course of my consultations, I came to know Ms. Nancy as an extremely knowledgeable and experienced attorney. Her approach was realistic coupled with optimism, she correctly predicted what to anticipate in my case and her expertise gave me confidence in Ms. Nancy’s ability to pursue my case immediately after I talked with her. Personally, I do not feel I could be in better hands, Can’t thank her enough. Highly recommended!

The best immigration lawyer!
Nancy is a knowledgeable, meticulous, dedicated, caring, friendly, and last but definitely not least, always and easily accessible lawyer. Working with Nancy (and her team) towards our EB2 green card was an exceptionally pleasant experience. She managed our case so well and we got our permanent residency - from A to Z - in less than 13 months! She kept us posted on every step taken and clearly explained the steps ahead. We do not recall any long waiting for her to reply our emails or return our calls. Hope to see more providers like Nancy for other services we need.

The Best Immigration Lawyer
I was referred to Nancy Vizer over seven years ago by a colleague as I wanted help filing for permanent residency. Nancy immediately walked us (my wife and I) through the processs with diligence, concern, care, and unmatched expertise. In a few months my wife and I got permanent residency. After five years we dicided to file for citizenship and Nancy helped us again. The process went quite smoothly and soon my wife and I were sworn in as citizens. Nancy is now currently helping me file for permanent residency for my parents. Throughout the entire process Nancy has been very helpful. She takes time to carefully explain the process to us, and does so in a very respectful way. She is always available to answer all our questions and demonstrates deep knowledge about the immigration process. She also keeps us updated all the way throughout the entire process. I recommend Nancy to anyone who is looking for an immigration lawyer who is caring and knowledgeable about their practice. Nancy is simply the BEST!

Great Immigration Lawyer
My wife and I were having problems getting her son to the US from Peru and were getting very frustrated with the whole process. There were a few complex issues in this case that even made it more frustrating. We asked around for a good immigration attorney and were very lucky to get the name and phone number of Nancy Vizer from a friend of my wife. Even though this case was complex, she asked the right questions, understood the problems, and got to work on it right away. It didn't take long before he was on the waiting list to immigrate and he arrived here 2 months ago. We will always be grateful for the attention she gave this case.

My wife and I were looking for an attorney for our immigration case with USCIS, when we contacted Nancy, she asked us to send her copies of our case material through email first, after she reviewed our case, we had our initial consultation with Nancy, and she was very concerned about our situation during the the whole time, she put a lot of efforts together to help us figure out the best strategies for our case, and she waved the initial consultation charge. Nancy is very responsive and trustworthy, we highly recommended her.

Knowledge, professional, and a great attorney.
Nancy is an excellent attorney and she is very easy to talk to. She thoroughly knows the immigration process and keeps her clients informed of the various rules/procedures so there are no unexpected surprises. As the entire process is challenging and mistakes are very easily made, it is comforting to know that Nancy will watch out for you. She responds to emails promptly which is very helpful when I had numerous questions. She calmed me down when I was nervous and I really appreciated her time and patience with me! Thanks Nancy!

Professional, caring, and highly responsive
We engaged Nancy Vizer to support us with a family immigration matter. We would recommend her to anyone who needs assistance with immigration. The process is quite daunting and there are hundreds of possible silly mistakes that one could mistake. Having someone like Nancy by your side will make your life much easier and will make sure that the job is done right. Nancy tells you all of the options, is honest and accurate in providing estimates on how much time something will take (the wait can be painful), and makes sure that you have everything lined up to get all the appropriate documents filed properly and in a timely manner. We have nothing negative to say about Nancy. She is a requisite professional who is very responsive. Thank you Nancy. I would use her again in a heartbeat.

Nancy Vizer is an excellent lawyer.
Since 2007, Nancy Vizer helped me regarding immigration issues (e.g., H1B and Green Card Process). I have already introduced her to my friends who need to process H1B and Green Card Process. Since I am an international faculty, she helped me to get H1B and currently is working on my Green Card Process. There are several things that you will find why I said she is excellent. 1. She responds everything that you need to know. Until now, she responds every email and phone call from me within a day. I heard that some lawyers do not want to speak to clients very often, but she is always reachable whenever you need. 2. She is very knowledgeable in terms of H1B and Green Card Process: I contacted several other (well-known) lawyers before her, but I realized that her knowledge and understanding related to current immigration law is superior to them. 3. She takes care of individual needs. I believe that everyone has different needs, since every case are different. My case was complicated, but she tried to understand my situation and came up with recommendation which was the best option for me at that time. I truly recommend her to anyone!

Nancy is a great lawyer
When I was looking for an immigration lawyer for my case, several colleagues recommended Nancy to me and I've never regretted the decision of choosing her. Nancy knows her stuff well and is easy to talk to. She has a very quick turnaround on things and always keep me informed of the progress of my case. Whenever I have a question, she always has an answer for me and would patiently explain things clearly to me so I understand the complicated immigration process. I've recommended Nancy to my friends and would do so to everyone who needs an immigration attorney.
