Cannot recommend enough!
Liset was nothing short of extraordinary with my case. She was extremely professional and always there when we needed guidance/had questions. She made sure we were always over prepared for every step of the way - which guaranteed us good nights of sleep while the cases were pending. I would highly recommend Liset in all regards. Our experience would not have been so positive if it were not for her and her team.

An excellent Immigration Attorney
We first met Attorney Liset when my family and I needed to consult with an attorney on something related to immigration. We found Liset after our online research on past user feedback and ratings. We were so impressed with Liset's professionalism and the simple way she explained to us all our questions that when we actually needed to hire an immigration attorney a year later, we didn't do any more research and straight went to Liset and hired her. And Liset easily proved that we were right in hiring her. Throughout the naturalization process Liset guided us in all steps, explained to us clearly whenever we had questions, and helped us in reaching our goal. She is an excellent immigration attorney in every way. We received great support from Liset's staff also. My family and I truly appreciate everything Attorney Liset did for us, and we will always be grateful to her!!

Best Immigration Attorney in DFW
Attorney Liset and her staff were very helpful with my husbands immigration case. My husbands case was very complicated and not every attorney was willing to take it. Liset without a doubt said she had dealt with worse cases and had not lost a case. She was direct and always informed us of any good/bad updates about our case. She was very patient and kind in the middle of our frustration sometimes. After a long almost 11 month process my husband was finally released with his permanent resident card waiting for him at attorney Liset’s office. It was definitely not an easy and quick fight. This one was a process and a waiting period for our family. All praise and honor was given to God for this miracle. We always prayed for attorney Liset and knew without a doubt that God would give us all the Victory. Gaby thank you for all your help and patience with me as well. You would be the one listening to my frustration at times as well. We appreciate everything you all did for us. My girls and my mother in law will be forever grateful with you Liset. They finally get to have daddy home, they thanked you and I sure did give them a big hug on your behalf. Blessings to all the staff. We will always recommend and use y’all for future needs.

If you need an immigration attorney, we highly recommend Liset Lefebvre!
When looking for an attorney to handle our immigration case, we called several law firms before we found the Law office of Liset Lefebvre and I am so glad that we have found her. Immigration can be complicated, but not with Liset! We worked with Liset to handle naturalization case for my wife and from the moment we spoke with her, we were confident that she is the one to help us. We were very nervous about the naturalization process since we did not know what to expect and what can pop up during the process. Liset laid everything out for us clearly and guided us through every step of the way. She was always very accessible, responsive, and reliable, and was an extremely knowledgeable resource on timelines, procedures and what to expect from the process from start to finish. It was a pleasure to work with Liset from the initial consultation and throughout the case. She carefully prepared our case, and she also fully prepared my wife for the interview, including questions that might pop up during the interview related to some travel complications in our case. Liset came to the naturalization interview and it gave us peace of mind because we knew what a great attorney was sitting next to my wife. We highly recommend Liset Lefebvre to everyone who need an immigration attorney!

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!
