Stacy is a perfect attorney for complicated immigration cases. I have stuck with my case for over ten years and I had hired 3 different lawyers, but none of them solved my problems until I met Stacy 4 years ago. She has handled my case step by step and very carefully until we succeeded. I just got my Green Card! So excited while waiting for it for 14 years!
Stacy is the best and highly recommended lawyer in the US. She also won on my brother's complicated case. He got his Green Card two months ago as well.

After 3 attorneys and 8 years wasted excluding thousands of dollars, we came to Stacy by referrals. To be honest, I was already tired of lawyers' empty promises and was very skeptical. But Stacy has the patience to listen, the love for solving complicated cases, and the determination to win despite the small probability. My asylum case was tied to my father who was sentenced to be departed. But my USC mother was able to petition for me as I was under 21. It took 5 years. I never thought I would get my green card and have the chance to apply to medical schools with high chances of being accepted. I'm glad my family and I found Stacy who worked on my case and my brother's (same situation) and won both of ours. Despite the many empty trips to the INS and immigration courts, Stacy never displayed a hint of annoyance and irritation with us. She was always willing to listen, lend compassion, and work harder. I truly appreciate her work and would recommend her expertise in difficult immigration case to anyone without reservation.

Attorney Tolchin was instrumental in helping us through the naturalization process. She is incredibly knowledgeable as to how the system works, yet she is truly passionate about seeing her clients treated fairly. Her thoroughness during the initial prep of the citizenship application was quite impressive. I don't think we would have had the positive results that we had without her. Can't rave enough about this attorney's effectiveness!

We were referred to Stacy Tolchin by another local attorney who told us that based on the information we provided him regarding my case, Stacy would probably be the only one that could get the desired results. How right he was! Over the almost six years we dealt with her and her associates, she never once gave up her efforts to try to help me to become a Citizen of this great Country. And, while I admit there were times when I thought this would never happen, Stacy never stopped reviewing court decisions that could positively effect effect my case and allow me to file nor naturalization. Almost to the day, five years after our initial interview, Stacy e-mailed us to give us the good news that she had found the precedent we were hoping for in a recent court decision which then allowed us to go forward with my application for naturalization. At this point Stacy really went to work to get all the documentation prepared to allow my application to be approved. She continuously followed up to insure that the Department of Homeland Security and all the other agencies involved in this process had all the required documentation. When it came time for the initial hearing she reviewed all the possible questions that could be posed with me, and even gave me a practice Citizenship Test. Because of a scheduling conflict, and since I did not want to reschedule my interview, she asigned one of her associates, Megan Brewer, to accompany me to the hearing. I immediately felt comfortable with Megan, because I knew that if she worked with Stacy, she would do and outstanding job on my behalf. Her advice during the hearing and subsequently for additional information I needed to provide, was professional and to the point. As a result of Stacy's and her diligent and capable work, I was notified that I would be sworn in as a naturalized citizen, on Flag Day, 2016.
Through this long process I found Stacy, as well as her entire staff to be extremely professional, forthright and caring to the point that all of them sent congratulatory notes when I received news. I read some of the reviews written about Stacy Tolchin, and the one thing that comes up over and over again is "....an Attorney Above and Beyond...". No truer words have ever been written, and we Thank you Stacy Tolchin.

I was referred to stacy tolchin after winning a criminal reentry case in federal court.what we thought would be an eazy N600 application for citizenship quickly turned into a nightmare. we were thrown various curveballs by the sneaky Sidewinders at the ICE and DHS offices.ICE attempted to deport me even though,I had the right to have my case reviewed by an immigration judge luckily,I had Stacy by my side. Stacy quickly moved and went to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals through her wide range of knowledge and experience in immigration law successfully got the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to Stay my order for removal.I was returned from the us-mexican border that afternoon and was placed at Adelanto Detention Center that was only the beginning of a two-year battle with ICE and the DHS. From the beginning Stacy guided me through the Labyrinth of immigration law. From the 9th circuit she got my case transferred to District Court(where I initially won the criminal reentry case) because of her knowledge and expertise of how courtrooms work she knew that would be the best route to take, I am glad to say that we are victorious over ICE and the DHS and I am now a United States citizen and she didn't have to resort to any unethical practices like ICE and the DHS did. From the beginning my case was no easy task but Stacy didn't flinch not once. Stacy is experienced,knowledgeable,professional but most important honest and caring Stacy went above and beyond for me and my family as I am sure she does for every client.

My case was very difficult from the beginning. My husband and I had exhausted every hope of trying to resolve my very complicated immigration case. We had already spent years and more than 30k with other well known lawyer firms to no avail. Then, a friend who was also a lawyer, heard about my case and suggested I meet with her personally . He said he had so much confidence in her, that if his family needed an immigration lawyer, she would be the one to call. I was doubtful she would even take my case. But after meeting her and discussing my situation she was immediately interested. The difficulty of my case was not a deterrent but a welcomed challenge! I was immediately reassured with confidence and hope. After many phone calls, letters, interviews, and personal attention from Stacy herself, we finally received good news. My case was approved! I cannot thank her and her staff enough for everything they have done for me and my family.

Stacy was extremely professional with all the questions I had. She was able to coordinate everything in a perfect way according to my travel schedules, her interview preparation was extremely accurate and really made me feel comfortable in such an important moment in my life. I really recommend her to anyone, she's really great!

I came across Stacy’s name on the Southern California ACLU website when I was researching to find out why my naturalization application was taking longer than usual to process. I had consulted with other lawyers who gave me vague answers. Stacy replied to my message immediately and I arranged a phone consultation with her. She was warm, concise and very knowledgeable. She informed me of an option to get legal representation from the best lawyers in the country without any charge – only a consummate professional will behave in such a manner. Unlike other lawyers, she did not tell me that I should pay her an exorbitant amount of money to find out what is going on with my case. Instead, she exactly knew what the issue was and came up with a plan to solve it. She was kind enough to get licensed in the state where I reside so that she could represent me. She was approachable and always answered to my emails promptly. USCIS offered to settle my case within 8 weeks of the date I requested her to represent me.
Please do yourself a favor and request Stacy to help you if your case has been stuck in the USCIS purgatory indefinitely. She has the expertise and knowledge to solve your issues. She is upfront and will not suggest you to pay for endeavors which are unlikely to have a bearing on your case.
Thank you Stacy!

My wife and I hired Stacy Tolchin back in 2011. We found her and her team to be exceptional. Ours was a complicated case, which Stacy took on with the utmost persistence, professionalism, and impressive understanding of immigration law.
Five years ago my fiance (now wife) was detained by Homeland Security at LAX, accused of abusing the Visa Waiver program, her passport confiscated, given ten days probation to leave the country. After explaining the situation in a call to my original immigration lawyer, we were referred to Stacy Tolchin. Under Stacy’s guidance, we moved our wedding up to immediately. Stacy was then able to retrieve my wife’s passport, and successfully guided us through a highly scrutinized and gruelling immigration process.
I cannot say enough in regard to her knowledge of immigration law, her persistence, her professionalism. She and her team were outstanding in walking us through all of the processes, ensuring all our documentation was beyond sufficient, guided us through the interviews, and ensured a successful outcome. My wife just recently obtained her US citizenship.

I hired Stacy Tolchin back in 2008 for my case, which in her words, was very complex and very challenging. After 8 long years, we did it! Stacy was able to win my case and now both me and wife are legal resident of the United States. It was definitely not easy in the beginning but after working very closely with her, it was obvious that she knew what she was doing. With her being located 5 hours away, the main means of communication were through email and phone conversations and each interaction was very pleasant. Whenever I had a question, and I had plenty, she would respond immediately and that was always greatly appreciated. Communication and knowledge was key in this case and she excells in both categories. Lawyers are not cheap nowadays but she is worth every penny I invested. Thank you Stacy for working so hard for me and my family.
