Would recommend to anyone looking for immigration help
Rebecca helped my wife and I apply for a Green Card EB-2 with a National Interest Waiver. The process is quite complex and stressful, but she made it very smooth. She will share the right amount of information to advance efficiently without feeling overwhelmed. As Rebecca sent us a copy of the files sent to USCIS, you immediately understand the high quality of the work and her high success rate. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for immigration help!

Excelent Lawyer
I have dealt with immigrations lawyers since 2008 when I was offered an H1B Visa back in Miami. Back then, I used a lawyer who made the process very smoothly. After few years with the H1B, I had to return to my country for personal reasons. 8 years later, I was offered another job in the US, but now in Virginia. I did the entire H1B process with another lawyer, but my visa was denied at the embassy level. I was so frustrated because I sold everything to move to the US since an initial lottery acceptance letter was received. Very little information and guidance was provided by the lawyer. At that moment, I reinvented myself and started looking for jobs again in my home country. I have already resigned, as well as my wife since this initial acceptance letter made us thought our Visa was approved. At that moment, a friend of mine recommended us Rebecca Whitehouse. Rebecca provided me and the company who wanted to hire me an alternative. We tried again, and my Visa was approved the following year. I was so amazed.....but guess what?.... 3 years later, and I no longer need the working visa...because I just received my green card :) There are many things I can tell you about Rebecca, but what stands out the most are: 1. HONESTY: she was very honest since the beginning. Her price structure is fair. She could have charged me more by offering more services like renewing working VISA while waiting for green card, etc. But her advices and recommendations were always to benefit me and my family. On another occasion, I told her that my brother (with a degree in music production from Berklee) was potentially offered a creative job with a marketing and advertising emphasis and we wanted to hire her for the H1B process. She immediately told me that she would not take this case, as she knew it was going to get rejected due to the fact that the education did not match the job opening. She could have taken the case and then have it rejected and still charge the company for the work, specially since we are ignorant on immigration law. In fact, another immigrations lawyer told my brother and the company he would take the job, but we followed Rebecca's recommendation. This is why, I always told her that I would do whatever she recommended me to do. The level of trust I established with her was great. 2. Knowledgeable 3. Very detailed oriented: She tries to collect as much information as possible. She organizes everything very well, and makes sure there is no gap with information presented. She makes sure everything submitted to Uscis makes sense and is accurate. For all these reasons and more, I strongly recommend Rebecca! Thank you Rebecca for accompanying me and my family in these difficult processes in the past few years of our lives. You have contributed to my future a lot. Thanks for everything :)

Articulate and knowledgeable, highly recommended!!
It was our first time working with an attorney ever, and I must say my partner and I had the best experience working with Rebecca and her team! We could not have asked for a better immigration lawyer, so glad my friend recommended her to us! Rebecca gave our case all the time and attention it required. She was patient and prompt in answering the various questions and concerns we had for her no matter how silly. We'd gladly recommend Rebecca and her team to people seeking immigration advise/representation. Thank you so much again!!

Highly recommended if you want a true professional to handle your case
This is my 2nd time to hire Rebecca. This time for my wife's immigration case. And this is my 2nd comments. I have to say, she is the BEST! We went through some bumps on the road under today's tough immigration situations and developments(with COVID-19 and Trump's government), and we are able to get the final expected result! As always, she has been professional, efficient and very friendly. I had other immigration attorney before, and Rebecca is FAR BETTER! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to get things done the right way and achieve your goal!

Professional and caring
I consulted Rebecca over the last five years since I decided to start my immigration process. She was always available, prompt and supportive. We worked with Rebecca for the I-751 application to remove conditions on my Green Card. After I obtained my conditional Green Card, Rebecca took care of the I-751 application (submitting additional evidence for removal of the conditions). She has been great in giving us frequent updates, being very organized and reliable. Three weeks after submitting to the USCIS the packet that she prepared, I received my approval and a week later my permanent Green Card was in my hands! It has been a pleasure to work with her, and I am planning to use her services in the future.

5 Stars
Rebecca was a professional from the get go. Patiently assessing our situation and recommending the most suitable path. Throughout the process (which is long and tedious as you know), Rebecca was always available and proactive with her advice. She clearly communicated our options and next steps. I already recommended her to my colleagues.

Our Experience
Rebecca is a pleasure to work with. She is courteous, professional, methodical and very knowledgeable. She is always on top of things which made this somewhat confusing and long process much easier. She is easily accessible and returns calls/texts promptly. That level of personal attention to clients is something we valued and appreciated. We had enjoyed countless pleasant and informative conversations. I can truly say that it was a pleasure dealing with Rebecca and I would highly recommend the Law offices of Rebecca Whitehouse.

Helped on my naturalization certificate
Rebecca worked on my naturalization to become a US citizen till completion. Process took over a year and a half. During that time she was reliable, gave sound advice and options on hiccups that aways inevitably occurred in a bureaucracy. She also gave timely updates and passed on relevant information, I would recommend her services for immigration law and consultation.

Fabulous experience
Rebecca was refered to me by a friend that hired her to work on a changing status need to permanent resident (greencard) from temporary working Visa. From the moment we first talked on the phone, Rebecca was permanently available to discuss not only any of my questions, but also to deal with my anxiety in being proactive to suggest action plans and time lines. I would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone who needs immigration help. My experience was nothing short of fabulous. I am absolutely sure to hire Rebecca whrn the time for my citizenship arrives.

top notch immigration lawyer who truly cares
My wife had to work oversea after we obtained our green card, we worked with Rebecca to make sure we do what we can to make sure our green card and path to citizenship isn't at risk. Throughout the process, Rebecca is always available to provide her professional advice whenever we need and she has showed consistently that she cares about us not only as a client but as another human being. She stayed on top of everything we need to take care of for our citizenship application once we are back in US. She also took time out of her busy schedule to attend my wife's interview and patiently answered all the questions we can think of and made us feel very relaxed and confident throughout the process. I would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone who needs immigration help.
