Best lawyer EVER!!!
Sassoun is one of the best lawyers I had the pleasure of hiring. He's very knowledgable, kind, caring, responsive , and always has your best interest at heart (all rare qualities of most lawyers!! Sad but true). He will never give you false hopes or try to "milk" you with fees if he knows a certain option in a case won't work. He's a decent human being and a fantastic attorney. I highly recommend him!!!

He guided me through every step of the process with professionalism and compassion, ensuring that I understood my options and the potential outcomes. Thanks to Mr Sassoun Nalbandians expertise and dedication, I successfully obtained my immigration pass. He was always responsive to my questions and concerns, providing clear explanations and realistic expectations throughout the entire journey. I would highly recommend Mr Sassoun to anyone seeking immigration legal services. He is not only knowledgeable and skilled but also genuinely cares about his clients' well-being.

Best lawyer that changed my life
Hello everyone! I want to write review about work with Mr. Nalbandian! Before we started to work with Mr. Nalbandian we had several consultations with different local lawyers in Glendale. They didn’t give so much information like Sassoun did and they didn’t deserve to be trusted as Sassoun Nalbandian. It was in 2019, I was studying in Glendale Community College and I had lots of friend who studied there with me, and I asked all of them about recommendations of immigration lawyers because some of my friends recently got green cards or approvals on their cases. I was surprised but more than 5 people told me about Sassoun Nalbandian’s office and told me many stories how he helped and changed their life’s. That’s why my title called “best lawyer that changed my life” I also want to recommend Mr. Nalbandian to all people that are looking for immigration lawyer like my college friend recommended me this office in 2019. We started our work after one consultation. It was long way because of the Covid, we had first court date in 2020 and after that we got main hearing date in 2021 but because of COVID they changed it to 2022. During all this time Mr. Nalbandian was with us, he was answering all our questions through email, he was calling us when we had serious questions and talked to us about our case and any other questions regarding it. Finally we finished first individual hearing in 2022 and we got another date in 9 months and that hearing was final! We got approval with my family, we are happy that we made right choice in 2019 and we are happy to write this review and recommend Sassoun Nalbandian as the best lawyer. We're really appreciate for everything, thank you and happy new year!

Highly Recommend!
Mr. Nalbandian is a professional and a highly skilled lawyer. After years of dealing with a very complicated immigration issue for one of my family members, he has recently resolved the case in our favor - including a waver under 237 (a)(1)(h). He explained all the details clearly to us, worked tirelessly, and resolved the case. Thank you!

Great immigration services
My mother's case was taking very long - over 2 years by the time when I decided to hire a lawyer. I left the consultation request on Mr. Nalbandian's website and we talked over the phone and decided what steps are needed. The office filled out the paperwork needed and uploaded on the NVC site then the case moved on. When the time of my mother's interview was coming close, I contacted the office again and requested signed forms and was thrilled by their help and willingness to support! Mr. Nalbandian and Mr. Bert Carolino were ready to help, answer all my questions and address my concerns before my mothers' interview. Thank you very much for all your guidance and support. I definitely recommend this law firm to everyone who needs guidance and help.

One of the best immigration Lawyer
If you are looking for a professional immigration lawyer, Mr. Sassoun Nalbandian and his Nalbandian Law group are the best ones due to their rich experience and knowledge in this field. We applied for my wife for a visa of the alien with extraordinary abilities, and we received our green cards almost after one year from the day we entered the US. For sure it is due to the fact that they know how to find the best solution for each particular issue and they are doing it in the most efficient way. You just must follow all their instructions and advice during the preparations of the necessary papers. I will strongly recommend entrusting your case to these guys, they are just excellent.
