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.
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 :)
