Joy Haynes and her paralegal Leo Santana are absolutely the best you can get. We found Joy on Yelp and cannot be happier with our decision to hire her and her firm.
1. Joy is extremely knowledgable. She knows every part of the law and always gives the best advice.
2.Joy always gets back to you in a timely manner. She is always available. We have been using her services since September, and since then she always gets back to us in couple of hours, which is absolutely amazing.
3.Working with Joy and Leo feels absolutely amazing. We are always guided in the right direction.
We would strongly recommend Joy Haynes if you need an immigration lawyer.

I found Haynes Novick Immigration on Yelp. I will be eternally thankful that my first phone call was to Haynes Novick Immigration and that Joy Haynes picked up the phone. From our first conversation Joy was compassionate, clear and organized. This combination was exceedingly important to me. Immigration is personal matter and Joy treats the issue with the compassion and respect this matter needs.
Joy guided my husband and i through the marriage-based green card process over an 11 month period. While working through this process, i had questions related to a career move and Joy even provided me with guidance about questions i had related to that.
The following characteristics are the reasons i would recommend Joy Haynes and Haynes Novick Immigration to anyone i know:
1. Joy knows her stuff. This is evident in the way she explains immigration guidance. I've worked with several immigration lawyers over 16 years and Joy is by-far the best.
2. She communicated with us constantly. We never had to remind Joy about a response. She always responded to us.
3. The firm is well equipped to gather necessary information from clients. When we signed-on with Joy, they had packets of information with clear guidance on what we needed to provide to them to move forward. This minimized any back and forth and made the information transfer process extremely smooth.
4. Lastly, but to us was the most important to us: In Joy we felt we were working with a lawyer that truly had our best interests at heart. We trust Joy immensely.
Thank You Joy.

I was referred to Haynes Novick Immigration through a client of mine. I was looking at starting the Green Card process through employment for both myself and my wife. After my first meeting with Jim and Joy, I knew that this law firm was going to everything to help me out. It took sometime to convince my work (no fault of Joy and her team) about sponsoring my application. Once I got all the approvals sorted out, Joy and her team went to action. Preparing documents, asking questions and making sure that everything was perfect. Whenever I had a question, no matter how ridiculous it was, I got an answer immediately.
We predicted that our case would take a decent amount of time, however by diligent work from Joy we got our Green Card in record time (From start to finish, 1 year).
I cannot thank Joy enough for how much she has helped both my wife and I, if you are looking for an immigration lawyer who is entirely on your side and will fight for you every step of the way - look no further.

[We are especially pleased to write this today as we just received confirmation that the immigration visa we had long sought has just been granted.]
Finding Joy Haynes of Haynes Novick Immigration was the best thing we could have done. We had gotten in touch with Joy after having decided to seek a Green Card for my spouse, who is South African.The dismantling of DOMA and the expansion of foreign same-sex partner rights afforded us the first real opportunity to seek immigration to the U.S. and while were excited, we also had trepidation. From our very first Skype meeting, Joy gave us the big picture -- all of the ins and outs, various scenarios as to how we could proceed -- and provided us not only a clear game plan but the confidence to move forward.
We can tell you with certainty that Joy's advice and ongoing counsel saved us a lot of time, money and anxiety simply by directing us around hurdles and common mistakes that we saw a lot of other people making. It the end, what could have been anxiety-making was a breeze. It took time, as these things do, but the whole affair was as pain-free as anyone could have hoped it to be.
What we learned is that the process can vary significantly from country to country, particularly if you are applying from the country of origin. Joy was able to identify and outline the process particular to South Africa, as well as some of the pitfalls that regularly trip people up. (Trust us, we consider ourselves relatively well educated but the process is actually quite tricky and we could have easily messed up at different stage in the process. Don't fools yourselves into thinking you can do it on your own; you can't.)
Joy makes a point of crossing every "t," dotting every "i," and reviewing every piece of documentation coming and going. She and her team couldn't have been more meticulous. Moreover, she answers emails generally within a day and communicates completely, simply and with clarity.
As for cost, we could say with that her counsel is a bargain at any price, but that would be glib. What we can say is that her firm's rates are incredibly reasonable by any standard. As far as we're concerned, we got far more than we paid for.
We are fans, plain and simple, and remain grateful to Joy for finally enabling us, as an American and South African same-sex couple, to return the U.S. after 15 years. Thank you, Joy, Raisa and the rest of the Haynes Novick team!

We decided to retain Joy rather than our firm-sponsored attorney primarily because she was accessible. After my wife and I met her, we knew immediately we made the right choice. Joy made us feel at ease as she and her team outlined how they would manage our AOS case. Throughout the process, her team was always responsive (at times, even proactive). As expected, our case was approved on schedule. We recommend Joy without reservation.

My partner and I had an amazing experience with Joy Haynes at Haynes Novice immigration to get my green card. We had been especially concerned when we filed our case because we are a same-sex couple and DOMA had just recently been overturned, so we were not sure what to expect. We are also both transgender, so finding a lawyer who was knowledgable in trans issues and immigration law was a top priority. We were impressed by Joy's professionalism, expertise, and ease with which she handled our case. We highly recommend her for other LGBT couples seeking a great lawyer for their green card applications!

We just got my green card after this past Christmas and as Joy said "It’s a Christmas miracle!"... I believe so too. We got married in August 2015 and applied all the forms by the end of September 2015 in Cleveland, OH. All the process of collecting necessery documents was really easy by the guidance of Joy and Raisa (our case manager). I would strongly recommend Joy as your immigration attorney even though she is in a different city as you live. All our conversations with her were accomplished via Skype or e-mails (this method worked really good because she responded really fast, on weekends, late in a day). Thank you, Joy and Raisa.

We have been fortunate to have Joy as our attorney. She is absolutely knowledgeable and caring immigration attorney. Joy has a lot of experience working with LGBT couples in regards to family immigration matters. As an LGBT couple, we had a peace of mind having Joy as our lawyer. She always responded to our inquires within a couple hours, sometimes just minutes! She always encouraged us for the better. I am recommending Joy Alegria Haynes and Haynes Novick Immigration Law Firm to anyone seeking A+ quality representation in immigration matters. Thank you very much Joy!

Joy Haynes was recommended to me and my husband by another immigration attorney to help with my husband's green card application. My husband was in the country on an H1-B visa (through his employer) and we were eager for him to receive permanent residency through marriage.
We were married in December and Joy helped us to file our paperwork literally the day after our wedding. She is quick, efficient and navigates the system easily. Joy made sure we were well-prepared and well-informed each step of the way. She is extremely responsive and communicative. Joy provided us with accurate and helpful coaching in advance of our INS interview, and we felt well-versed and ready the day of. We received my husband's green card just a few weeks later. All in all, Joy made this process (which can seem overwhelming) smooth and easy. She clearly enjoys what she does and is a pro.
I would absolutely recommend Joy to those searching for an immigration attorney.
