Good, reliable and trustworthy
Atty Okoh-Brown helped me with my immigration papers. My case was a unique case. I came from the Philippines, my mom petitioned me before I reached 21 years old. Got my petition approved and my visa number current but was denied by USCIS of adjusting my status to permanent residency because my mom was naturalized before I filed for adjustment and moved up my petition from Family based 2 to Family base 1 which then lead to a 10 year wait for visa number to be current. I then went to a lawyer and consulted this. Paid almost 4k and was told that they already filed my adjustment of status. To my surprise I got a letter from Dept of Homeland Security for deportation. I searched for another lawyer and Atty Okoh responded to my request. She helped me with my papers and she represented me with my case. I am now a permanent resident and I was not deorted thanks to Atty Okoh-Brown.

Response from Lisa Okoh-Brown June 19, 2011
This was a unique case because she had been ordered deported when she appeared in court with another attorney who was unable to put forth arguments about relief this client was eligible for. The client was smart enough to ask for more time to find another attorney. I appeared at her next hearing but prior to the hearing briefed our argument on the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) for which she was eligible but for which the uscis stated she was not. I completely disagreed and we went to bat in court. She now has her green card and it was a pleasure to help such a deserving young lady who is an asset to this country. At my firm we will fight even when the service says there is no hope, we do not give up just because the service says to do so.

Extremely helpful and courteous
Lisa helped me get a fiance visa for my fiance and a visa for her son, and then their green cards. I had no idea how to go about either, and she made the process VERY easy. She sent me all the proper forms with detailed instructions for me to fill out, and she and her group did the rest. And she and her staff were very courteous and helpful with all my questions. We now successfully have their green cards with no hassle.
