Removal of conditional status on Green Card
The best thing about dealing with Armand is clear instructions, thorough follow-up on every document and confidence in winning the case he gives you even before you start! And my husband and I are thrilled because our case has been approved in less than a month from the filing moment !! Usually you need to consider getting a reply within 3 months. It`s lot of work to prepare all the documents in the format they have to be submitted, and first time we filed them we didn`t know all those little nuances and culprits of filling the right stuff ! so we received an RFE (request for further evidence) and had to deal with it. Based on his experience and a multitude of similar successfully won cases Armand explained us exactly what we had to do - and believe me in a whirlpool of dozens of papers and emotions about this situation you do need a clear and logical person who will lead you through the bureaucratic jungle straight to success ! We are very happy with the results and highly recommend Armand as your friend and support in dealing with any immigration issue you might have confronted. Thank you Armand !!

Le debo mi ciudadanía a Abogado Armand
He sido residente permanente legal de los Estados Unidos por más de 30 años. Siempre he querido ser un ciudadano de Estados Unidos, pero mi caso se complicó por una variedad de razones. Conocí a Armand por mi trabajo y inmediatamente me di cuenta de su pasión por ayudar a la comunidad latina. Armand me convenció de que podía ayudar a obtener mi ciudadanía. Me convertí en un ciudadano tan rapido y todo estaba hecho tan fácil con la ayuda de el. Armand es uno de los mejores abogados de inmigración en Houston. Él y su asistente legal hizo que mi proceso de ciudadanía increíblemente fácil. Le debo mi nueva vida. Gracias abogado.

Citizenship
Since the very first visit with my Attorney he explained in detail what steps were required, and what the cost will be. He always replied to any text or emails that I sent him questions regarding my case. He also reassured me that everything was going well with my case. I would definitely refer him to anyone needing immigration assistance. I am a very satisfied client!

Great immigration lawyer!
I am very thankful to Armand for working on my complicated immigration case. I received RFE letter from USCIS after filing I-751 form. I was very worried about it since you only get one chance to respond. Armand knew exactly what we needed to do. We gathered enough evidence so my case was approved 10 DAYS after sending all paperwork to USCIS. I couldn't believe it! Armand is very passionate about his work. I strongly recommend him to anyone with immigration issues.

Honest and Dedicated Immigration Attorney
After my father was detained by immigration at the Houston airport our family was left in shock. Our father had always traveled in and out of the country. This was the first time he had ever been denied entry to the US. US ICE placed our father in removal proceedings! We immediately began searching for a reputable immigration attorney who could help bring our father back home. We found Armand and were truly blessed! He was quick to respond to our inquiry and after our phone consultation we knew he'd be our fathers attorney! He is very responsive, dedicated and honest! We couldn't have asked for a better attorney to represent our father! He won our fathers case after only 2 court hearings! Our father is now home where he belongs! Thank you for all you did for my family Armand! Please continue to bless other families! You are truly special!

Most Trustworthy, reliable, honest immigration attorney in Houston
I found attorney Armand by searching immigration attorney's in Houston. His website was very detailed and provided a ton of information about him and what he specializes on. My father was detained at the Houston airport by immigration. That's when my sister and I knew we had to find the best immigration attorney to take our father's case. When we found atty Armand he was very honest and helpful from the very beginning. He spoke to me regarding my father's case and explained to me what the entire process will entail. One thing that stuck to me was that Atty Armand said was I can't promise you this process will be easy but I can promise you that I will put everything I have in this case and that I will be as honest with you through the entire process, and I also never expect to lose. That honesty is why my sister and I decided to go with Armand. He always kept great communication through the entire process, and always there when we had a question or any concerns. He always kept reassuring us that he will try his best to get our father out of detention center he was being kept. That gave me sense of security that everything was going to be okay. He will always call my sister and I right before he was going to pay a visit to our father and called us after the visit to touch basis on what they had discussed. How much more can we ask for. The communication was key to us. Every case is completely different and some cases can go to 4-5 hearings but Armand won our father’s case on the second hearing. With hard work and determination from Armand our father is a free man. After our father was free he even texted our dad to wish him a good, and safe flight back home. He also texted my sister and I to let us know our father was on his way to the airport and that it was a case he will never forget. Armand was able to bring our father back home for us before the holidays a true blessing. Our father is now able to also apply for his citizenship. We couldn't have wished for a better attorney. My family and I were blessed to have found Armand. He is a GREAT atty and hope he continues practicing for many years to come, and give other families relatives the freedom they deserve.

Best Lawyer you will find
I went to Armand Jawanmardi when I was desperate to fix my immigration status and my daughter's and I had let too much time fly by that I really thought there was nothing that could be done. When I first went to meet him I felt like I was talking to a friend one that truly cared. He immediately started my paperwork and throughout the entire process he kept me informed and kept answering all of my questions. As a result my daughter and I are now Permanent Residents because of Armand's wonderful work. - I would recommend his services to a friend and anyone who wants a powerful representation. He is the best!

An amazing lawyer who works hard and is honest! THANK YOU ATTORNEY JAWANMARDI!
My wife and I met with Attorney Armand Jawanmardi after previously consulting with two other immigration attorneys in Houston. Both of those attorneys told us that my case would be impossible. They told us that I would never be able to prove that my marriage to my wife, and having two young children together, would be enough for the government to grant my adjustment of status application. When I asked them what we could do they each told us that we would need to pray that the government would one day in the future change immigration laws to approve my application. They said my case was IMPOSSIBLE because of my previous immigration issues. From the moment we met with Attorney Jawanmardi we felt comfortable. He was honest, passionate, and confident. We felt we were in good hands and trusted him with our case. He would always call us to make sure we knew what was happening in our case. From the very beginning to the end, he was more than a lawyer to us, he was a friend. About two weeks before my interview date came, I received my work permit. Attorney Jawanmardi then called us into his office to prepare for the interview. After we went to the interview, my application was approved the very next day and I became a lawful permanent resident of the United States! This entire experience was overwhelming for me. I am full of so many emotions. I can now take my children to school without fear of being caught driving and deported, I can go out with my wife and have a good time with her in public without worrying whether I will be here the next day to continue our lives together, and I can finally get a job and legally work in the United States to support my family. My life changed forever and I want to thank Attorney Jawanmardi for helping to give me a new life in the United States. I recommend him. He is an outstanding lawyer and a great person.
