Highly Recommend
We hired Pauline for our immigration case; she set out expectations accordingly from the beginning, guided us perfectly through the complicated process, and has an incredible attention to detail. Very professional with an added dimension of empathy and kindness not commonly seen. I highly recommend her.

Ms. Pauline helped file my Advanced parole application as well as Adjustment of status- marriage based. She is very knowledgeable in immigration law and was always there to answer any question or concern I had. My husband and I are very happy with her service and for making this process so smooth. We got our interview waived and case was approved 3 days after medical exam was received. We are so grateful to have found Ms. Pauline to guide us through this process.

Wonderful and knowledgeable lawyer
Consulted for marriage based greencard. Pauline was very professional, courteous, and easy to work with. I did an initial review of lawyers before selecting her. Selected her based on breadth of knowledge and practicality concerning immigration law, and her experience reflects through in her advice. Just had some misunderstanding with the legal plan terms of service, but we resolved that. Highly recommended.

Very Thankful
She was able to guide us to get my husband's green card renewed when USCIS was asking for more evidence and I had no idea what to send them. So thankful when we got the approval weeks after the evidence arrived and didn't have to interview again.

Immigration process
I just completed the process for the I-130 , I-765 and I-485. Pauline was of great help, always available and always eager to service with her suggestions and comments. She always had a positive attitude. I appreciate all she did to support me thru this process which can be stressful and overwhelming at times. Pauline was very direct, knowledgable and consistent from the start of my process. I highly recommend Pauline Okenu.

Immigration status consultation
I consulted the lawyer for advise on extension of visa and change of status for a relation. Her step by step instruction and honest guidance was very helpful with the filing and obtaining visa extension approval. The lawyer was highly knowledgeable and honest in explaining what is possible, unpredictable, and difficult to achieve. She was very prompt in returning my calls if she did not pick immediately and listens to my concerns before providing all the options. I highly recommend her to any one who needs a knowledgeable and dedicated immigration lawyer.

Intelligent, well versed and very pragmatic
I have known Attorney Buihe Okenu for some years. She is very versed with all the immigration laws of the United states. She has been of immense help to me in sorting out all the immigration bottlenecks. I have been consulting her since I began my immigration journey and have been very satisfied with her detailed way of explaining each step of the process, the problems that you may encounter and how to address them. She has years of experience in this field. I will definitely recommend her to my family, friends and colleagues.

Extraordinary, professional service
I consulted Attorney, Buihe Pauline Okenu about my family's immigration application that was being held up. Her response was very professional, with clear, articulate responses to all my legal concerns. Their were no over-the hill promises of the un-achievable. Rather, frank advice that loosened the knot on my immigration applications with follow up calls up until my families arrival. Professional, personal service.
