Phenomenal outcome
Rehan helped my husband through the green card process. The system was slow due to COVID but Rehan kept us updated on all the paperwork and progress. We got the green card and the marriage interview portion of the process was even waived for us which rarely happens! We couldn’t be more relieved. Thank you, Rehan!

Excellent Immigration Attorney
When trying to navigate the adjustment of status process, in the midst of a pandemic and new laws being released, Rehan was a breath of fresh air! His patience, extreme knowledge, confidence, and commitment to our success was invaluable! My wife and I were blessed to have such a wealth of wisdom on our side. He walked us through the process, helping to ease our anxiety and alleviate our stress. We will forever be grateful for his support and guidance.

Very knowledgeable and caring professional.
We honestly, from the bottom of our hearts, can say that Rehan Alimohammad is the best attorney and most decent person you can meet. He sincerely cares about the outcome of your case. My cousin’s case had many complications, and we had very little hope for approval. However, Rehan reviewed, processed, and submitted the case most professionally. His attentive approach and attention to our case resulted in a positive outcome. Thanks to Rehan, my cousin got her green card approved last month. Attorney Rehan Alimohammad is very attentive to details; he made sure that the required documents were completed and submitted professionally and timely. He was always a step ahead on our case and kept us updated about progress on the matter. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns my family had. We are applying for my mother’s citizenship now, and we are using Rehan’s services again. He is very trustworthy. What could be better than trusting your attorney and knowing that he looks after your best interest and that your case is in safe hands? I highly recommend using Rehan’s services to everyone who wants to see a good result and deal with a professional and decent attorney. Naz Hussain, Houston, TX

"I have had many family and friends with immigration needs over the last few years. Over the course of these many instances, I have regularly been asked to help and work with their respective immigration lawyers to make sure things are going smoothly. Recently, a family member was seeking an immigration lawyer and we retained Rehan based on multiple referrals. In working with Rehan, I was thoroughly impressed with his level of preparation and responsiveness. I can easily say that Rehan was the most polite, professional, and by far the most responsive of any immigration lawyer I have ever worked with. Prior to Rehan, I rarely spoke to the actual attorney without a fight and often waited days for a response. With Rehan, I never spoke to anyone except for him. Even more impressive, I got immediate responses to any and all inquiries/questions/messages. Rehan responded to all calls, messages, and emails literally within an hour-regardless of day/time. I'd recommend Rehan to anyone, easily."
