An outstanding lawyer for immigration
Dessi is an outstanding lawyer. She helped us apply for a green card through marriage. She did all the paper work, had documents to help us stay organized, and was very detailed and thorough when preparing us for the interview. She was a great joy to work with. We highly reccomend her.

The very best attorney in Houston
I approached Mrs.Mathew in support of my EB1 application. I am pleased to say that she helped me in getting the case approved without an RFE! even I believed that my case was a bit on the tougher side! But her promptness, due diligence on the matter, and attention to detail are what really helped me in getting the desired approval. She was available to answer any questions that I had within a couple of hours sometimes even in minutes which is a rarity these days. she would call me back, text or email. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to consult or hire a competent immigration attorney.

She is a very cheerful, dedicated, committed and responsive. She treats you like family. Dessi has kept me up to speed on all issues related to the various processes, prepared efficiently all required paperwork on our behalf. She is very responsive by email, text messages any day of the week. I do not think you will find a lawyer that responsive elsewhere! I highly recommend her and already did to lots of my friends.

Highly recommended!
Dessi assisted my husband and I with our family petition (green card). We were amazed by her organization, follow-ups, clarity, and genuine care for our case. Dessi went the extra mile when Immigration committed a mistake in our case. She was on top of it, re-sending information, calling, and representing us in person until she solved it. We felt confident the entire time by having her as our lawyer. She gave us all the information, tips, and confidence to have a successful interview. Dessi is extremely knowledgeable and up to date with all the constant changes in immigration. If you are looking for an Immigration attorney. You are in the right place, and you don't have to look any farther.

The Best!
My highest recommendations are reserved for professionals like Dessi. She expertly handled our immigrant IR1 and IR2 visa petitions which made for a smooth relocation from Europe to Texas. Clear communication, rapid responsiveness, unparalleled client care, and a comprehensive understanding of dynamic immigration law are four reasons to instruct Mathew Law Firm.

Wonderful experience. Thank you Mrs Mathew.
We approached Mrs Mathew for assistance with our naturalization applications. An excellent attorney, with great attention to detail. She provided timely, honest and accurate information each time we had a concern. She was also very instrumental, in addressing some of our specific non-immigration related questions. I would highly recommend Mrs Mathew to anyone requiring an immigration attorney.

Great attorney, amazing attention to detail and personal follow up
I found Mathew Law firm completely by accident and it proved to be a great stroke of luck. Dessi Mathew is an extremely capable attorney who knows her craft really well. She understands clients needs and objectives and makes a well laid out plan at the very beginning. I found her attention to details, honest feedback, and personal follow up gives very reassuring throughout the process. In some of the larger firms, one ends up spending 80% of the time or more with staff other than the lead attorney, and sometimes the message gets lost in translation. I highly recommend Dessi Mathew at Mathew Law to anyone and everyone who wants professional advice or counsellor for immigration purposes.

Excellent Immigration Attorney
Dessi has been our immigration attorney during our green card filing process. It has been an extremely positive experience working with her. She is knowledgeable, responsive, organized and caring, which made the whole process smooth and positive for us. She was more that just attorney, because she took the case, case developments personally and was there offering alternative ways to handle every situation we had. I highly recommend her.

Knowledgeable, dilligent, timely
Navigating your way through an immigration process is both enormously challenging and stressful, particularly for someone who is poor with detail and admin. Dessi was referred to me prior to my arrival in the US in 2013 in the subsequent years she has walked me through from this initial stage to temporary, parmanent resident to green cards (2 yr and now 10 yr) and now to begin citzenship proceedings. She has been friendly, patient but most important timely and exceptionally knowledgeable. She has nursed me through my anxieties and provided confidence when it was needed. I will continue to use Dessi's services for years to come and can't recommend her highly enough.
