A Lawyer Who Really Cares and Works Hard On Your Behalf!
My husband and I had a case that had, for lack of better terms, gone stagnant. We had retained an attorney who seemed fine with just accepting the status quo and told us we had to be patient. We watched as many of our friends, who had gone through the process after us, succeed while we were in case purgatory. Thankfully, a friend of my husband's introduced us to Layla. We immediately retained her services and it felt like she was really pushing to do everything that she could to help us. Our case finally was making progress and in less than six months (after stagnating for nearly 3 years) we finally have a favorable resolution. We cannot speak highly enough of how happy we are, our only regret is that we did not retain her sooner!

Our Experience with Khamoushian Law
My fiancée and I had spoken to perhaps eight immigration lawyers, all of whom answered our questions in a rushed and often rude manner, before we first spoke with Layla. Unlike these other lawyers, Layla took her time from the get-go to listen to the details of our case before relaying her advice. Her professionalism, we soon found out, was only exceeded by her warmth as a human being. Layla and her firm managed to turn a long, cold, bureaucratic experience -- we applied for a K-1 visa -- into something a little more humane and bareable. Aside from her very obvious dedication to our case, Layla went out of her way to ensure our comfort at every step of the process. In short, we were very impressed by the treatment we received by Khamousian Law; we would recommend their services to anyone who might want or need their help. Having Layla by our side made a great difference. Of course, we have already decided to enlist her services for the remainder of the naturalization process. Thank you, Layla & the rest of Khamoushian Law!

Mr
I honestly don’t know where to start. I never leave reviews for anything but this is one thing I felt i had to say thank you for. I was is the worst position possible with my expired green card and Ex wife reporting me to ICE. I needed a miracle and thank god I met Layla. Not only is she the most knowledgeable lawyer I spoke to but as sweet as can be! She was very clear with what she wanted me to do and stopped me spiralling into things I didn’t need to. She came with me to my interview with immigration, she kept me calm, consulted me on how to express myself and at the end of the interview told me story to the officer in a way I didn’t know how. She filed all my paperwork needed and even though I didn’t think the interview went well at all (I thought it went horrendous). My new 10 year green card came in the post! I could have cried I can’t recommend Layla more. I hate looking through reviews for people, I called dozens of people and I was lucky enough to get Layla. I can’t thank you enough Layla!

Layla made it so easy for me and went over each and every step. She prepared me well for the interview and also follow up when the case was stalling. I would recommend her in heart beat to anyone.

Best Immigration Lawyer you can find!
We have worked with Layla for my mom's green card application. her case was stuck in NVC for a long time. She guided us through the whole process, explained her strategy clearly and followed rigorously with authorities involved. After her involvement in our case my mom was able to receive her green card in a timely manner. Very much appreciated your help on this Layla!

Would Hire Again & Again
Layla helped me with my case by communicating with the lawyers suing me. She advised me on what to do, when to do it and how to do it. Layla held my hand throughout the entire process and I am very grateful for her help and to have chosen her to help me. I will be looking for her help in the future if I should ever need it. I highly recommend her services.

Excellent attorney
I am so thankful I found Layla to be my attorney to help me with my visa adjustment of status. During my consultation she always made herself available if I needed to ask question and made me more confident filling out the forms. She kept me updated with the current status. During the interview she was there beside me which made me feel less nervous and more confident. All I can say is she is a brilliant, excellent attorney. With her help my case completed successfully in just over 3 months. I highly recommend Layla Khamoushian.

Excellent immigration attorney with a positive attitude and great sense of humor!
My husband and I could not have asked for better legal service. She took care of speeding up my husband's green card retrieval process after USCIS made several errors in our case. She looped in high-level contacts to reopen a case they dismissed, and he was able to get a 10-year green card and surpass the conditional 2 year card. I am so, so happy we found her! And also, she's got a great personality and sense of humor for real!! She will definitely be our go-to for any immigration-related legalities.

Best Immigration Attorney
She is the best immigration attorney in the country! Layla Khamoushian is very knowledgeable and professional. She is familiar with all the recent laws and ongoing changes in the visa application process. Ms. Khamoushian was always available to answer my never-ending questions and was patiently responding to all my concerns. In addition to being a fabulous attorney, she is also a warm and kind person and has so much understanding and compassion. Her staff also goes above and beyond to help in any way that they can. I cannot recommend Layla enough and my family and I will be forever grateful to her.

Layla Khamoushian was a beacon of hope for me at a time when my options appeared limited, and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was she able to defend us , her empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself. I am grateful for her service and I hereby recommend Layla Khamoushian without reservation.

Khamoushian Law Group was Amazing!
I’ve never had to deal with a legal issue. It worried me, especially during covid. Layla took my case and assured me all would be fine. She kept me informed through the entire process, was always available to address my concerns or questions and was excellent returning my calls and or emails. Once it was done, I felt like a huge weight was lifted! I could move on with my life. Thank you Layla! I highly recommend Khamoushian Law Group.

Amazing lawyer!
My husband is from South Africa via Canada, and has been dealing with immigration issues for over ten years. Since we’ve been married, over four years ago, Layla has been a constant source of information and support for our case. We were successful at our interview because of her meticulous attention to detail and preparation. We cannot recommend her enough for anyone experiencing immigration obstacles. I would never just call her a lawyer; we call her our friend.
