Olsa and her team helped us so much through the green card process.
She walked us through the process, told us everything we needed, and made sure we got everything in as soon and as correct as possible. When any problems did arise (as they can, even in the best of situations), she helped us immediately on how to resolve them without causing any problems.
When it came time for the interview, Olsa was at the USCIS office with us and had our entire file with her. The interviewing officer as a result was able to get all information from us that she needed.
She is very sweet, hardworking - and sincere. Thank you Olsa!
This work took a very stressful process and made it as smooth as possible for us.

Olga, This is a “Thank You!” that is long overdue -
I want to thank you for helping us to secure my wife’s passport back in 2010 when you were working with Manuel Soliz on Navigation Street. We were continually frustrated by the government denying my wife a passport even though she was born in Donna, Texas. Her birth was assisted by a midwife and every office we spoke with required different documents of proof that we would always present to them, but each time they would say that it was not sufficient. My wife had even been issued a jury summons 3 different times ! Are aliens allowed to serve as jurors??? We were not very confident at first, but when Olga told us that we would be part of a class-action lawsuit against the U.S. government, we saw the results. We had my wife’s passport within a month and it was one of the happiest moments of our lives. We have since traveled to Canada, Mexico, England, Scotland, Wales, Spain, & Portugal. Thank you, Olsa, for your hard work and dedication on our behalf !

We worked with Mrs. Cano for permanent residence and US Citizenship application. Our family unity was on the brink of collapse because of my elder Son's expiring Student Visa. She developed a very focused action plan for residency. Preparing the case, organizing all paper work, completion of petition, She did perform all of the legal requirements in a very short time period without any delay or glitch. Finally my son received permanent residence. Olsa is a life saver for us. We are impressed for her performance and dedicated work. Currently Mrs. Alikaj-Cano helping us for application for USA Citizenship. I sincerely recommend her for family based and all immigration services.
Thank you Olsa, wish you a very prosperous career
