Great Law Office
I retained the law office of Charlotte Viener to help with obtaining my green card. From day 1 the entire office was helpful, knowledgeable and took the time to explain every step of the process. At no point did I feel like I was just a random client, they took my case as serious as I did. What could have been a nightmare of forms, poorly worded questions became a much easier task to overcome, and everything went through without a hitch. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for immigration help.

Essential for any Immigration case
Charlotte and her team do a wonderful job and are essential for navigating the confusing waters of US immigration. She assisted me greatly with my various applications/ H-1B and then later obtaining my green card. I have since recommended her to many friends and they have found her to be professional, efficient and courteous. If you’re thinking you can go it alone and go through the US immigration system without a lawyer, you cannot. Charlotte and her team make sure to explain the system, explain your options and will let you know of any potential issues you may have and how they can be solved. My family are incredibly grateful to Charlotte and her team.
