I want to share my review with those individuals who need help about immigration matters. After speaking with numerous immigration lawyers throughout Saint Louis, Katie was the only one I knew took the time to understand my story on personal level. I felt that when I finished telling her my story she "really" understood my plight at that moment I finally found someone who I trusted with my “life”. Unlike some many lawyers Katie made a real effort to connect with me. She made an effort to build an effective attorney/client relationship from the start and personally. I felt like she built my confidence up although we both knew it would be an uphill battle with my case. However, she never allowed me to leave her office feeling down and out.
First of all, Katie is a well-organized, polite-young-intelligent woman who exemplifies the meaning professionalism. I felt confident from the first time I met her that she would keep me in the right place. The atmosphere of the Bleisch law firm is warm and inviting. Each time I came to the office I was met with a kind smiling face from her assist, Reiko. On one occasion, I had the pleasure of meeting Katie’s boss, Barbara; she was so down to earth and made me feel important and she said I was welcome to speak with her anytime. Throughout my case when an issue (as they will happen) arose, Katie was prepared with a working solution! From the interview to the final hearing in court, Katie was by my side like a “true friend”. Finally, I got the answered less than 2 years of hiring Katie, despite a complicated case; I received a permanent resident “green card” which I have been waiting for more than 9 years. I have enjoyed having Katie as my representative and would highly recommend her for anyone in need of an amazing immigration attorney.
Katie is truly Angel to me and in my eyes a real hero. I want to say “thank you so much for saving me Katie” you’re simply the best!
