I was very apprehensive to hand over my case to someone new. However, I am glad Dayna Wheatley took my case, she was successful in getting my case approved. She helped me understand every step of the process and was very quick to respond to all my questions and concerns.

I was not looking forward to the bureaucratic process of becoming a USA citizen but Dayna was efficient and professional that it all seemed so simple. She is able to explain the law in terms I can understand. I am grateful for her thorough understanding of immigration law. She addressed all my concerns and questions in a timely manner which helped me feel less stressed.
THANK YOU Dayna!!

I have the good fortune of having become acquainted with Dayna Wheatley when she practiced in the Chicago area. Since that time, I've called her whenever an immigration matter arises. Her knowledge and experience in this area is phenomenal. I recently referred a close friend who was engaged to marry a woman from another country. My friend was grateful to me because he received such great advice and service from Dayna. I have also greatly admired the lengths she will go to fight for her clients' rights at all levels of the immigration court system. Dayna is not just a fantastic lawyer, she is a genuine human being with the highest of values.
