Very Helpful
It's not often someone will take personal time to answer I question I had posted on the AVVO site, that does not pertain to his area of practice, simply as an act of kindness. That says heck of a lot about anyone let alone an attorney ;) than just about anything. Thank you for your help Sir.

Green Card
I was married and got divorced while I had temporary green card. I was afraid to be deported, but Mark got me a permanent green card. He was great in doing all paper work. Good service.

Thank You!
I came to Mr. Clay after listening to him on a Russian radio years ago. I wanted to bring my mom from Bulgaria to USA. Mission successfully accomplished. It was a pleasure to deal with him.

Trustworthy Lawyer
I was referred to Mark by my friend. He handled her case well. His fee was much lower for asylum case than other attorneys' fees for the same service. Mark filed my case in a timely manner. He was always ready to assist me whenever I had questions or concerns. The interview went well, and my request for asylum was granted. I no longer need to be afraid to stay in USA. Very trustworthy lawyer.

Great Attorney and Very Reliable
I worked with several lawyers before, but Mark was the best. He was very reliable and responsive to my needs. My applying for green card went without any problems even though I was filled with anxiety during the process. Now, I am a permanent resident. Thank you, Mark!
