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.

I came to Annette with after finding myself in a position of employment I was extremely dissatisfied with. My understanding of things given my visa situation was that it would be difficult or impossible to leave, with the only recourse being to follow through until the end of my contract.
Annette listened patiently and offered suggestions about what to do. We spoke to her a number of times, racking up perhaps over 2 hours of consultation time before she even asked to be placed on retainer so she could officially work on my behalf. She knew much more than the attorneys of a group that was offering to hire me - my case was very unique and difficult, and the other attorneys didn't really know where to begin.
Annette was extremely thorough and took great pains to make sure everything was in place before turning in the paperwork to make things happen. It was almost anticlimactic when we got the green light from immigrations with no questions asked.
I continued to correspond with Annette even after we got the result we hoped for, for little things that she really didn't have to be involved in.
You will not regret hiring Annette. She knows exactly what she is doing and will fight for you like family. Her default demeanor is realistic optimism, and will give you options when you might feel there is little or no hope. She will spend so much time with you on the phone that you'll start wondering if she has time to do anything else after your conversation. I intend to stay in touch with Annette long after my business with her is done. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

My visa situation was very critical. When I reached out to her, she not only accommodated me in short time but also efficiently worked throughout the process. She was very helpful.

Annette Brigsted has been trustworthy, knowledgeable and valuable for our case. She was responsive to all our questions and concerns and we felt that we had an excellent representative to guide us through the legal system for the issuance of our Green Cards. I would gladly recommend her without any reservations.

I moved here to the United States 10 years ago, and together with my actual wife we put together all the information we could in order to apply for my green card right after we got married.
Thinking that it was gonna be easy and take a short time to get it, we started the proccess without any help, and it was after a year and some months that I got a letter back from immigration deniying my petition. We look for lawyers specialized in Immigration (three of them), and the three of them said pretty much the same: it was gonna be a looong proccess and no hope to get it sooner than 6 months if ever.
We finally made an appointment with lawyer Annette Brigsted, and all the desilusion, discouragement, and darkness, turned into a "bright sky". Following the steps and providing her all the documentation she asked us for, it didn´t take her any longer than a month and a half to get a hearing for our situation, and another month for me to get my green card at home !!!.
We were very impressed for the way she managed every little detail, and how fast she moved. God knows me and my wife are still thanking Him, for putting on our "rocky road" such an amazing lawyer and wonderful person that she is.
Thank you Ms. Brigsted again and may God bless you forever.

I was introduced Annette Brigsted by a friend of mine. I am a doctor working in Omaha, Nebraska having some immigration issues. She immediately called me and spoke to me for 30 minutes and gave me multiple options. More importantly she reassured me that she would help me anytime. This happened 6 months ago. At that time i decided to have her as my immigration attorney.
Since then , i urged all my prospective employers that i would use Annette as my immigration attorney. In fact, i decline to be interviewed if they did not let me use her as my attorney.
She is extremely helpful. She went out of her way to help me . very thorough , professional and knowledgeable. Very effective in communication ( some times i get an email reply within an hour).
I recommended her to my friends and i will keep doing that.

I was referred to Attorney Brigsted by a friend of mine about a year ago. At the time, I was in what I believed to be a pretty desperate situation. Attorney Brigsted met with me and listened to my story without interruption. I could tell right away she was interested in understanding the situation before offering any sorts of advice or promises. After an hour or so, she started talking and while she never did make promises, she made me feel like there was hope because you could tell she knew the law and she had a plan. The process was strenuous but her enthusiasm and resolve kept me going and kept me hopeful that things would eventually work out.
A few days ago, I found out that her tireless work had paid off and that my problems were over. My case wasn't trivial, it wasn't a simple case of having to fill out of form and waiting for 6 months... This was a complicated and unusual case. Attorney Brigsted never shied away from the many challenges that it possessed.
Throughout the process Attorney Brigsted kept me informed at all time. She made herself available to me as often as I needed her to be. We communicated mostly via email and she was very responsive, replying to my inquiries within a few hours and always the same day.
It may not be fair for me to claim that she is the best Immigration Attorney in New England because I don't know many - but it's hard to imagine someone more dedicated, more invested, more professional and with a better grasp of the law than Attorney Brigsted. My family and I will forever be grateful for what she has done.

As a hiring Manager, I do work with immigrants we employ. In many instances some type of immigration paperwork must be completed to comply with the law. Attorney Brigsted was highly recommended by a company that has many more immigrant employees than I do. Ms. Brigsted is the most competent and capable attorney I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She returns calls and emails promptly, and has made herself available even after “normal” working hours to discuss a difficult case. There is a reason why she has the reputation of being the best immigration attorney in the Northeast. She is able to resolve even the most demanding cases in a timely manner. Attorney Brigsted is an outstanding attorney that I highly recommend.
