Kristie was referred to my husband by a colleague of his. I am from Barbados and reccently obtained my "green card" or permanent residet status.
From the very first meeting, we were made to feel comfortable and special. Kristie was friendly, yet professional and objective in her approach. She is a very knowledgeable attorney. She explained the whole process up front and guided us every step of the way, in terms of what information we needed to provide, what to expect of the authorities and what was expected of us.
All of my MANY questions and concerns were answered, which made me feel very much at ease. The anxiety of the "unknown" was released into Kristie's hands and we became confident in the process.
Kristie and her office were also very efficient. All follow up information was promptly transmitted to us via email and phone calls.
Lastly, the fee was reasonable. I know this for certan as I had received a much higher quote before we were referred to Kristie.
My husband and I highly recommend Kristie Leigh Bowerman!

I first hired Kristie over 5 years ago for my permanent residency application (through employer) and again recently for naturalization. She is very professional and helpful. She explained the process very well, handled all the paperwork, and was available to answer any questions every step of the way. I'm very happy with the services she provided and I highly recommend her.

I endorse Ms. Bowerman. She is an excellent attorney with a high level of expertise in all areas of immigration law. If I need a second opinion, particularly on employment based immigration, she is my first choice of who to call. Although we do not practice in the same city, I know Ms. Bowerman and her work very well due to her participation in immigration attorney meetings and workshops throughout the United States. She is considered to be an attorney with an excellent reputation by all who know her.
