Very intelligent and diligent lawyer!!
In my experience, lawyers usually take so long to respond, but Tehmina answers all messages within a day. And goes the extra mile. No more sleepless nights worrying about your visa expiring and dealing with all these bureaucratic agencies, because you have a lawyer here you can depend on. Look no further, save yourself the trouble of finding someone reliable, because you got that right here. A++++

Rude and disgusting
I am currently seeking immigration council and when I called this firm no answer okay, I get a call from a hostil aggressive individual saying “you called us!” Person identified as Tehmina Avagyan then when I told her I needed advice/council she straight interrupted me said “ going to send you a link and make you appointment there.” And hung up the call this person should not be in any way dealing with customers in any extent. Person called from a 818-600-0808

Response from Tehmina Avagyan June 21, 2024
Firstly, all our calls are recorded, and we have not received any call that was answered in the manner you described. Moreover, the procedure you described contradicts our standard operating procedures. At our firm, the front desk staff answers all incoming calls, not the attorney. Based on these discrepancies, we believe this review may not be authentic. Thank you
