Amazing immigration lawyer
Dr. Gisele and her assistant Erica went above and beyond in working on our case, walking us through every step of the way, and taking the time to explain every part of the process whenever we had questions. Our immigration process took over a year, but they were highly supportive throughout the whole process. Thanks to them, our family is finally together. I highly recommend Dr. Gisele to anyone seeking immigration legal counsel.

Best Immigration Attorney in USA
Dra. Gisele Ambrosio and her paralegal Erica were incredibly efficient managing our Green Card case. They guided us to complete the application package correctly so there were no pushback from USCIS. Within 8 months we received our travel permit, and 12 months we received the actual Green Card. Dra. Ambrosio and Erica were available 24/7 to answer any questions. I would recommend them to anyone looking for immigration legal support.

Helpful and motivated throughout!
Gisele and her assistant Erica were the most helpful lawyers we could have found to guide us through the immigration process! They made everything so organized and easy to understand for us. They were always available for ANY questions we might have had and gave us confidence throughout the whole process. We never felt unprepared, Gisele and Erica helped us practice for our interview and assured us that everything was going exactly as it should! Our process was quite speedy, and I think it’s definitely because of their thorough work and dedication to helping us do this. Thank you Gisele and Erica so much! Our family is settled and happy because of you two!

Review on Gisele Ambrosio lawyer service
I wish to extend my formal appreciation for the exceptional work carried out by Dr. Gisele and her team on my case. Five years ago, I relocated to California on a specialized work visa. Dr. Gisele skillfully managed the intricate process of converting this visa into a Green Card. The process was thorough, lengthy, and involved numerous complexities. Her support was comprehensive, encompassing not only the technical and specific aspects of my case but also providing emotional support with great sensitivity and attention to human relations. This achievement is not solely mine, and it is with this acknowledgment that I express my profound gratitude for the outstanding expertise, competence, and dedication shown towards me. D. Do Prado.

Gisele Ambrosio is an extremely competent and dedicated immigration lawyer. She helped me achieve my dream of practicing my profession in the United States. The immigration process is complex and bureaucratic, but Mrs. Ambrosio and her incredible and oustanding team guided me through every step, from the beginning to the approval of my visa. She and Erica was always available to answer my questions and reassure me. Mrs. Ambrosio is a committed professional who truly cares about the success of her clients.

Competent and creative attorney
My experience with Gisele was an extended discussion For a consultation. She's not a prototypical attorney. She's bold, honest about viable options and thinks outside of the box. While I only had a consultation I could sense that she cares about her clients and is willing to do whatever she can to meet or exceed their expectations.
