I had a great experience.
We hired Tidwell Swaim and Associates from the very beginning.
From the day I graduated from TCU and started a job with Texas State Utilities all the way back in 2005 till today, when I was granted a green card, 2015. It has been a very long process with a lot of paper work to be filled and they came through. The transition was smooth through the H1 process including the labor certification and 2 renewals. Finally the day has come that I am a permanent resident! I thank them and all the paralegals and workers that worked on my case.
