Highly Recommended Attorney
A friend of ours recommended Rahgozar Law firm to handle my daughter's green card petition. I also had an initial consultation with a few other immigration attorneys. I later decided to retain Rahgozar law firm because Ms. Rahgozar were able to articulate the process and its challenges. Ms. Rahgozar is highly experienced attorney. Throughout the whole process until my daughter’s green card approval, She displayed professionalism, attentiveness, responsiveness, honesty, and dedication to our case. She is our go to Attorney.

Well Versed in Complex Immigration Cases
Pegah Rahgozar and her team came highly recommended. She was very knowledgeable and thorough in walking me through every step of the process for my immigration case. It was a complex case and I appreciated her honesty in the possible issues we might encounter and what her plans were. Once she started working on my case she was great at keeping me updated and at responding in a timely manner. I could not have asked for a better attorney in this process and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Immigration journey with Rahgozar Law firm
I just finished my naturalization process with the Rahgozar Law firm last month which is the conclusion of a long journey which wouldn't have been possible without the amazing help and assistance from Pegah, I cannot thank her enough for all that she and her firm have done in this long and sometimes stressful journey of immigration and path to citizenship. She a brilliant lawyer and an even more amazing person. I couldn't have gone through this process without her and her amazing staff. Without doubt one of the best immigration attorneys in Houston. She is capable, skilled at her trade but above all, she is compassionate. Pegah was always available to answer my questions. Not only that, she tried her best to alleviate my stress and concerns regarding the immigration process. She handled my case professionally and compassionately through all the various stages of progress, from the initial green card application all the way to naturalization.

Attorney Rahgozar is the best!
Attorney Rahgozar is the best! She is very professional, personable, and promptly responsive. I was involved in a 4-car pile up accident (not my fault), insurance was giving me the run around, she helped me to get everything taken care of. I'd highly recommend her service to anyone who needs legal assistance.

I highly recommend Ms. Rahgozar and her team.
Rahgozar Law Firm finally made the last three years of stress and anxiety melt away. My husband and I filed our I-485 and I-130 in September of 2017. Had I known how much we were going to go through; I would have hired an attorney from the start. We used a company located in Rosenberg (I think) in a strip mall. The business staff was very nice, but they did miss some items on our application that Attorney Rahgozar noticed. We had our interview in February of 2019, and after that heard nothing. We kept calling USCIS for an update with no results except they received our request and a notice was sent. We never received that notice even though we used the form on the USCIS website to notify a change of address last November. Finally, in January of this year, we looked for an attorney and found Pegah Rahgozar. Thank goodness we did as USCIS had sent the notice to the wrong address. Ms. Rahgozar was very kind when listening to our case. She sent us very detailed and thorough emails with the steps and documentation to gather (COVID19 had already started). Even though all our correspondence was by phone or email, She or her colleague Yenifer always responded to our communication timely and told us exactly what we needed to do. USCIS had sent a letter of intent to deny. It was crazy as one of the reasons they were going to deny was that I had not proven I was US Citizen?? I was born here and lived in the US all my life. We sent the mountain of documents to Ms. Rahgozar’ s offices and she compiled a huge file response that she sent to USCIS. They reopened our application which they had sent a denial notice, and my husbands’ application for the green card was finally approved on July 9th. I highly recommend Ms. Rahgozar and her team.

Super Immigration Attorney
Rahgozar Law Firm, PLLC Immigration attorney Westside PLACE DETAILS Jay Boz 4 minutes ago In my opinion, counsel Rahgozar is the best immigration attorney in the greater Houston area today. With her guidance and services, I got my green card in 6 months (15th Oct 2019 to 29th April 2020). She was so precision-driven and passionate in my case that in the end, I got my green card without even attending any interview. Under her guidance, expertise and strategy, we were able to provide relevant and key overwhelming evidence to the extent that it was determined that I did not require an interview to get the green card after all. When I walked into her office on the first day, she listened to my case patiently and then immediately advised on the easiest pathway to getting my green card. This was different from my initial plan. However, I accepted her advise and from there, everything just fell in place as planned, going through the mandatory processes and finally culminating in my getting the green card in 6 months. Kudos also to her wonderful secretary, Yenifer, who was on top her game at every point in time. In conclusion, if you want results, Ms Pegah Rahgozar is the go-to person. Candid advise. 1 Share Add a photo

Review of Pegah Rahgozar
My immigration case was an extremely complicated one, had been handled by 2 different immigration attorneys before, but still got NOID. I am incredibly grateful that I was referred to Rahgozar Law firm almost the last minute before the deadline. The attorney who handled my case at that time just gave up. I had also consulted with 7 other different immigration attorneys before I was referred to Ms. Rahgozar, almost everyone told me there was no hope with my case. Ms. Rahgozar was very professional and knowledgeable. She was such a caring person with positive attitude, which was a huge encouragement to us during such frustrated time. We were so impressed by the level of attention and detailed work Ms. Rahgozar’s provided. She provided me step by step professional guidance on preparing the evidences from our end, she was always very prompt with responses to any of my concerns or questions. With her professionalism, dedication and commitment, we were able to turn in the responses within 2 weeks, which I thought was impossible before I first consulted with Ms. Rahgozar. I would highly recommend Ms. Rahgozar to anyone in need of representation for immigration matters.

Great Attention to Detail
We used Rahgozar Law for Deportation Defense/Hearings for our detained nanny after traveling abroad. We were impressed by Pegah's attention to detail. She did a thorough case review, developed a comprehensive defense strategy and was effective in executing in filings and court! She gave us realistic expectations and was right on point with timelines and outcomes. With Pegah (and lots of prayers!), we got our nanny home safely!

Excelente abogada
Pegah es una abogada muy profesional, organizada, amable y honesta. Me gusta como ella te habla con la verdad y te explica la dificultad de tu caso desde un principio para que no hayan malentendidos. Nuestro caso aún está pendiente. Pero Pegah desde el principio del proceso fue muy explícita en lo que debíamos hacer y como teníamos un corto periodo de tiempo. Ella nos explicó paso a paso lo que debíamos hacer y también nos daba referencias para hacerlo más fácil. En Pegah puedes notar su verdadera intención de ayudar en tu caso. En nuestro caso ella fue más allá de lo esperado y nos ayudó con otros asuntos relacionados, pero no exactamente de este caso. La comunicación con ella es excelente, en su oficina y también por correo electrónico. Por lo que siempre puedes tener comunicación con ella cuando tengas preguntas o no entiendas algo y ella siempre te responderá. Yo definitivamente recomendaría a Pegah Rahgozar a mis amigos y familiares.

Excellent!
Pegah, from Rahgozar Lawfirm, is my currently my attorney. She and her staff are very knowledgeable, quick to respond to questions or requests. Very Professional and courteous. Sitting in a courtroom before the judge makes most people nervous when you are the one at the podium. She spoke with us beforehand, explained what would happen and kept us calm. Being informed of the process makes things go a lot smoother, and she explained everything throughout the process. I would absolutely recommend Pegah Rahgozar for anyone seeking Immigration council. Love her weekly vlog with updates on changes in the law in a tough world we call "Immigration."

Excellent Immigration & Citizenship Attorney
Excellent Immigration Attorney. I would definitely recommend her to all my contacts who seek help on immigration and citizenship. My case was held pending after the interview. I would have not done it properly had I done it at my own. My son AHTESHAM AHMED recommended her. Rahgozar helped me in a very professional manner to fill out all the gaps and arrange the required documents to avoid any further questions from the USCIS. My oath ceremony papers came within less than a month. A great help with a very reasonable fee.GO FOR HER. Iftikhar Ahmed
