Time is money, just enjoy the experience
Desperate after a long ~20 years waiting for naturalization, decided to step over an attorney to file the assessment. Wrong idea, I didn't get an attorney, I got a baby-sitting process A-Z in a snap of a finger. You can find professionals that makes the difference, but you can't find the ones who fix everything in a sole an only instant without tremendous works. A+++ to The Lefebvre team, this will remail in my book for long time.

Excellent Services
Having attorney Lefebvre and her team in charge of our naturalization process was one of those decisions that you are always glad you made. From our first meeting for consultation to the day of our oath ceremony Liset and her team were always involved and making sure things were done right. I really value her straight to the point attitude and her attention to detail all they way to the point of describing almost word by word how the interview was going to be. Even when some unforeseen weather circumstances got in the way, she made sure we had the right information and got us back on track immediately. Thank you Liset and Team!

Fast results
My husbands case was in the process of being denied due to urgent request for additional evidence so we quickly made an appointment with Liset at the Lefebvre Law Firm. They worked quickly and within a week the additional evidence was sent. My petition was approved without an interview in less than 3 weeks. We are beyond thrilled that she was able to work within the 30 day deadline with a very positive outcome.

GOT I-485 REOPENED IN LESS THAN 2 WEEKS
We needed a lawyer who would not only put in his/her best effort but also think outside the box. The reason we went with Attorney Liset Lefebvre is because she had answered one of our questions online a while back. Out of the top lawyers or attorneys in Texas who had answered, she was the one whose answer not only stood out but gave us a feeling that she knows the Immigration ( USCIS ) law in and out. We are glad we kept her contact information. As she got a I-485 application reopened in less than 2 weeks. If you are someone who is in doubt about who to hire for your green card or anything Immigration related. I highly recommend you to do a consultation with her. She listens and based on my experience she will take your case personally. We have found her to be the best attorney and a great person. Our entire family will now use her services from EAD, Green Card up until the US Citizenship. God directed our steps towards Liset Lefebvre!

A Truly Incredible Lawyer!
I am highly recommending Mrs. Liset Lefebvre. She is so detailed and highly experienced and knows immigration law by heart. She is so caring and accountable for her clients. I had a big issue with my pending N-400 application, then I decided to hire her, and she walked me through my problems, and finally, I became a naturalized citizen of the United States. I genuinely appreciate Mrs. Liset Lefebvre for saving me.
