I am a resident physician on my second year of H1B visa. I was looking for an abbreviated legal consultation on what may be the best way for me to apply for green card. A friend of mine told me about how amazing Annette was and shared with me her contact information. I emailed her office and I got an immediate response with a complimentary phone call appointment with Annette. Annette reviewed my CV and provided sincere, thorough suggestions on different ways to apply green card, and we extensively discussed the timeline of it, the strategy to establish good relationship with my potential sponsors, approximate cost of application, etc. She took time to answer all questions empathetically. She spent 40 minutes with me on the phone, free of charge. I will remember her and reach back when it is time for me to really prepare for my green card application.

I can't explain how grateful I am with Annette and her team. They are very professional and will devote their time to their clients. I had a great experience, and a fantastic outcome...just got the big news my H1B has been approved! They made me feel confident and were always there to help with any issue or questions I had. I would certainly recommend them.
