Best Immigration Lawyer
A highly competent and dynamic lawyer. she is highly knowledgeable and expert in immigration matters. I hired her as my attorney and it was the best decision ever. She treats you with respect and her polite behaviour is really praiseworthy. Right from day one she was on top of things. She prepared all my documents in a timely manner and handled my immigration case in a highly professional manner. She had answers for all my queries. Her response is very fast. For anyone out there looking for an Immigration lawyer, she is the best one. Hire her as your attorney and I guarantee you won’t regret your decision.

A very satisfied client
We searched google to find a good local attorney, and came across Siddique law group. Read a couple of reviews and decided to go with it, and couldn’t have made a better choice. Our case (change of status F1) was quite difficult, and after being disappointed time and again we were ready to give up. she is very pleasant, approachable, efficient and really makes it a point that a client gets a real idea of all the legal options available, she is always available on email, phone and in person to answer your questions and concerns. Ms Sadia Siddique went out of her way to help my family and paved the way towards the approval of our case. If you’re looking for an excellent attorney Siddique Law Group is the way to go.

Best lawyer in Chicago!
Saadia and Hashim help me and my husband with all the process of getting his green card. I hired them back in Feb, 2017 and got approved on Oct. 2019. After, my husband had 2 felonies on his background. Saadia was able to get his waiver and green card approved. We are very happy and satisfy with their work. They were always a phone call or email away with prompt responses. We really appreciate everything they did to get my husband approved! I truly recommended them 100%

Immensely thanks to my first class lawyer Saadia Siddique.
After the negative on my residency during my interview at American Consulate of Cd Juárez, México. Saadia never let me down, she reopened my case again and continued fighting and working hard on it, and with her great experience and professionalism finally, I got my residency. Also thanks to Saadia my wife obtained her residency almost five years ago. So trust me and don't hesitate to contact her. Saadia is Top Attorney of Immigration in Chicago, she got that recognition by Super Lawyers Magazine. Durante mi entrevista en El Consulado Americano de CD de México se me negó mi residencia. Después Saadia nunca abandono mi caso, ella reabrío el caso otra vez y continúo trabajando duro peleándolo y con su gran experiencia y profesionalismo ella finalmente consiguío mi residencia. Cabe decir que gracias a Saadia mi mujer también obtuvo su residencia hace ya cinco años aproximadamente. Así que creanlo no tituben en contactarla. Saadia está dentro de los Mejores Abogados de Inmigración de Chicago, esto es reconocido por la revista Top Lawyer of Chicago.

Review
Mahamadou Drame. I was helped by Saadia very much. I appreciate her help. She should be in top class. She helps anyone regardless, Arabs, Africans, Spanish, etc. She represents a lot of people from other states like Illinois,Indiana, Ohio,and more. She helped me from the beginning when I was an immigrant all the way until I got my citizenship. I am thankful for everything she has done for me up until now. She is a professional, and she listens to you and tries her best to help you in any way. That is what makes her the best. So I would give her a 10 +10+10.

Experience with Siddique Law Group
Saadia Siddique was my only light at the very end of the tunnel when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a good resolution seemed impossible. What I went through with the INS was a nightmare & me my my wife were extremely traumatized.Not only was she able to defend me from a wrongful accusation which almost led me to be deported out of the country but her calm & reassuring demeanor offered emotional support to us. Not only is she knowledgeable & competent, she is unlike other lawyers out there who are only after your money and would not be willing to do anything until you hand that check. She is truly a sincere person and I felt that she really cared about me. My wife & I are eternally grateful for her service. Hiring her as my lawyer was the best decision we ever made. We will hire her again in a heartbeat!!

Saadia is one of the best attorneys i have dealt with, She helped me with my immigration case. Saadia and her staff kept me informed of my case progress. Saadia did very good job in making sure that the case is getting the attention it deserves and succeeded in getting me my Green Card. I found Saadia to be very knowledgeable, experienced and Professional. I already recommended Saadia to other people who needed help with the immigration. She is very caring, helpful, thoughtful attorney with the experience to make a difference, She is very friendly and return calls very quickly. I endorse this lawyer. She is awesome and very reasonable.

Extremely Satisfied!
My father needed to go through his naturalization to become a US Citizen and we could not have found a better person to help us through the process! Saadia was knowledgeable about every step of the process and was able to help him become a US Citizen! I am very thankful for her in helping with the paperwork, interview process, all the way up to the oath ceremony. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone that needs help in immigration law.

LPR
Being an eligible respondent to obtain my Permanent Resident Card , I applied & submitted my I-485 at my own to USCIS 3-4 years ago. I was pretty sure that it will definately be materialized within its due course of time . However, I have been waiting & waiting to listen something from the authorities concerned but there was nothing to come out. On the recommendation of some of my other friends, I finally approached Attorney Ms. Saadia Siddique, explain her the situation of my case ,she listen my case very attentively, she accepted the proceedings, gather my all documents, refrences, prepared and process my legal case to the Immigration Authorities. It is really very appreciateable that it took not more than 6-7 monthes when I got my immigration status changed & got my green card in my hand. I believe it could be happened only because I was successfully able to choose a real professional & well experienced Chicago's Immigration Attorney who's name is Saadia Siddique. I strongly recommend to any one who is looking for her/his immigration matters, to seek the services of Ms. Saadia Siddique.

Spouse Immigration (GC)
We recently hired Saadia for spouse green card, our experience working with her is excellent. She gave lot of time to understand our situation, prepare our case, even reviewed everything with us before the interview and guided us in the entire process. She is an expert in the immigration matter, highly recommended!!

One of the best Law firms in Chicago
I and my wife are pleased to recommend Sadia and Hashim Siddique for your immigration needs. In our judgment, both of them are bright, articulate and comforting attorneys. Hashim prepared us fully, what we needed to get together so that we got through the process in a short time. He is very friendly too, soft spoken and very approachable. It's just like talking to your good friend for advice. Sadia was able to answer all questions that I had completely. She is a subject matter expert and has the right and practical answers and solutions. I and my wife highly recommend Hashim and Sadia without reservation.

The Best Immigration Attorney!
We are very grateful to Attorney Saadia Siddique for her hard work in helping my father become a US CITIZEN. We had consulted with at least 2 different attorneys over the past 5 years before consulting with Ms. Siddique. She is the most experienced immigration attorney I have seen. She is also very polite and respectful. She treated my father and us with so much respect, which is hard to find from an attorney who happens to be so much knowledgeable. She was on top of things for my father. If I had a question and call her, I always received fast and helpful response. She worked very hard to prepare my father for the exam. If we had known her earlier, we would not have wasted 5 years of time. I highly recommend Attorney Siddique to anyone with all their immigration matters. Thank you so much for all you have done to help us, May God Bless You!

green card
I came to the US on a J1 and had applied for a waiver which was approved, subsequently had I130 and 485 pending for the last 1.5 years. Recently after filing a mandamus and spending upward of 20K, received a notice of intent to deny. I had lost all faith in my previous attorney and on a relatives suggestion, hired attorney Siddique. The time frame was 28 days in which she had to go over 3 years worth of immigration history. She filed the reply for NOID in an extremely timely fashion and very meticulously. I have nothing but good things to say about her. Long story short, within 15 days of her submitting her affidavit, both pending cases were approved. The only regret I have is not having hired her from the beginning!!

Excellent Legal Immigration Attorney
Saadia Siddique took over my wife's case from a different attorney, who had not done a good job with filing. She only had 3 weeks to complete and gather all documents and write a legal case for it. She did that during her vacations. Today, we received approval from Immigration office approval of my wife's Green Card application. We are very happy and Thank her for her incredible work.

Highly recommend
I would highly recommend Saadia to anyone requiring immigration services. I have dealt with her for approximately 10 years through the green card application and most recently for U.S citizenship. Her professionalism and rapport with me was second to none. You are not just another name on her client list as she makes you feel confident about going through the process.

Best Immigration Law Firm
I had very complex immigration issues and when it was time for my green card process I wanted it to be done right. I started with a different attorney and it took me years to be called for an interview. My friends who I applied a year before had their green cards and I wasn't even in line for an interview yet. Well... I switched lawyers and that was the difference. Got my card in less than 6 months and just went for an N400 interview with Hashim Siddique prepping me and accompanying me for the interview. It went great!!!. I couldn't recommend a better and knowledgeable law firm. Hilton. A

Highly recommended !
My immigration case was one of the "nightmare" cases no body wanted to deal with. Or, at least more then few lawyers I visited prior to going to Saadia Siddique gave me a very vague explanation of my situation and the legal options I had. They did not sound optimistic about it either. Saadia's office had completely different approach and I am very grateful that I filled for my green card through them.She was very professional and efficient from the very beginning. During the consultation visit she explained the whole process very simply and gave me the time frame in which my case would be finished. She also wrote in a letter form-step by step, list of things I need to do and all the documents I needed to gather. Whenever I had a question she was available - she either helped me over the phone or through an e-mail. I only had to go to her office 2-3 times, which was very convenient. My case was over and done earlier then I expected which,needless to say ,made my life so much easier. Saadia is very knowledgeable efficient and professional. I would highly recommend her and her office to anybody with immigration issue.

Defered prosecution with open hold and case dismissed
Saadia its regarding to guy you replied on dream act. I have an experience of 2 misdemeanor while on green card. I was not convicted as I got deferred prosecution with hold open. I was not required to enter plea. Charges were dropped and case was dismissed. No plea with hold open has no effect on immigration. Its not a conviction at all for immigaration.
