I hired Kramer to be my attorney when I was in Italy. I wasn't familiar with any American attorneys; therefore, I hired Kramer based on the reviews I read on line. I needed help to apply for a H3 visa as I was hired by a LA based cosmetic company as a chemist. I wired Kramer $3000 retention fee that he asked. We exchanged a few emails, and he called my boss in LA to discuss the visa application process. My boss was extremely perplexed after he spoke to Kramer. Kramer told my boss to write the training program which was needed to apply for a H3 Visa himself. Kramer offered no assistance on how to prepare and write my training program. Kramer's suggestion to my boss was that if he needed assistance in writing, he could purchase this book Kramer recommended from Amazon. Both my boss and I were inexperienced in applying for the H3 Visa; and if all we needed was to purchase this "book" and copy from it why do I need to hire an expensive attorney? I felt cheated by Kramer's behavior.

Working with Mr. Kramer and his team was such pleasure and honored. It was the second time to have him represent our case, removal of conditional this time. With all respects, everything went so smoothly and we got 10 year card in reasonable time frame. After ending the process, we are surely missing him. If you have any immigration issues needed to be resolved, Mr. Kramer is the only one you can trust in California, or even in the US.

David is an incredible immigration attorney!!!
My situation was really tough,there were issues where many lawyers put their feet down but David took up my case helped me understand the process and fraught jealously.He is very professional and do things beyond expectation. Our family is indebted to him for his great help. He is very knowledgable and empathetic, what else a nonimmigrant family need while hiring an attorney.

I need to start by saying that David and his team are awesome and I'm so happy that we selected him to be our immigration lawyer - and I have a green card to prove it!!! I originally contacted numerous lawyers to find "the right one". After a failed H1b petition a few years ago (largely due to an incompetent lawyer), we wanted to be sure that this time around we had the right guy for the job....and I must say David was most certainly that!
I initially contacted many lawyers that were offering free consultations (David included). He stood out above the crowd. I also contacted a lawyer on here with many, many great reviews, (many more than David) that only offers free consultations if you ultimately decide to go with them. If you decide not to use them, that phone call costs you $500. I thought, "these guys must be outstanding - somehow even better, more legitimate and more likely to give me the result I want than any of the other lawyers giving away free consultations". I was mistaken. After 15 minutes of explaining who I am, what I do and what we want, he told me he wasn't so involved in the ins-and-outs nor up-to-date with the current laws, but he had lawyers on his large staff who were. He transferred me to a lawyer with far less experience than David who told me that he wasn't confident that we could get the results we were hoping for (an EB2 or EB3 visa & green card). He said it would be difficult if I wasn't going for the NIW (which I wasn't).
This other guy left me feeling like I didn't have a chance and that perhaps David, who had said positive things about his experiences and abilities, was just saying all that to get my money. I called David again, and he gave me his time (for free) again. We talked it through and I was completely honest about my thoughts and worries. I basically said I was worried he was just saying all this stuff just to line his pockets. He was caring and understanding and built my confidence and trust. I paid the other law firm their $500 and picked David. It was the best $500 I spent... and I gave it to another lawyer! haha ;)
Numerous times throughout the process we felt discouraged or confused by the complexities and the anxiety that comes along with this process, but every time without fail David's positivity and knowledge of the system eased our minds. Although we live 2500 miles away from his office, anytime we needed we could email or call. We were never left waiting long before we had a response. We even met once for breakfast when by chance a work trip put me in the same place as him. He was on vacation celebrating his birthday with his wife and still made time to meet and get to know me in person. Overall, it was a long process (a couple of years), but with each step we were given clear instructions of what he needed from us and what he was doing next.
He may or may not know the impact that he has had on my family (he's been doing this successfully along time, so probably has some idea), but his hard work, knowledge, diligence, customer service, professionalism and friendly demeanor has brought about a result with USCIS that has changed our lives forever...and honestly, he made it seem easy. And all these great things I'm saying about him, go for his entire team. Things like this don't work well without great support, so thank you to all involved! I know everyone's story is different, but this is my story and I'm glad I picked David! Cheers mate!

Right after moving to Los Angeles, I didn't know any lawyer I could turn to for my marriage-based green card application, or any friend who could recommend one to me, so I went on Avvo and contacted a couple of lawyers. The moment I stepped into David's office, he was very welcoming, friendly and kind, yet professional, and made me relax with his smiles and lovely jokes. He was also familiar with Japanese terms for the documents I needed to get from my home country, which pleasantly surprised me! My mind was made up.
During the paperwork, preparation, collecting evidence and supporting documents, not only David himself but also his assistants were very helpful and patient as well. They always responded my emails so fast that I felt I was well taken care of. Thanks to David and his great team, USCIS scheduled my appointment for the interview exactly 3 months after they had received my application.
During the meeting before the interview, David was thoughtful and supportive as always, and though I was a bit nervous, I knew there was nothing to worry about. And when he attended our interview with us, he eased the atmosphere of the interview room (the immigration officer's office), and everything went smooth! It was so peaceful and relaxing I couldn't believe (I was expecting some kind of interrogation)! My application was approved and I have just received my green card.
I cannot thank David and his team enough, and I would definitely, absolutely recommend his services to anyone who is looking for the best care they can get for reasonable fees!

After meeting with several attorneys, many of whom made me felt pressured or uncomfortable, David immediately made me feel at home through honesty and his experience. Throughout the process of filing to approval, he answered any questions, however silly they were in hindsight, promptly and thoroughly. I cannot recommend him highly enough and will turn to him without hesitation should I need representation in the future.

From the moment i stepped into his office, i felt i was in the right place. Throughout my parents immigration case Mr. Kramer showed that he was very efficient, honest and responsive. He is very dedicated in doing his work and doing it right. I would recomend Mr. Kramer to everyone looking for great service and fast results.

My wife and I are very pleased that we had David to help us and represent us as we went through the process of applying for my change of status from visitor to permanent residence. We 100% recommend David.

It is my privilege to recommend Mr. David M. Kramer as an excellent immigration attorney. Mr. Kramer is highly experienced, reliable and very available to answer questions in a timely and a friendly manner. He is also very generous with his time in explaining every step along the way. Mr. Kramer's extensive knowledge, speedy response and his calm demeanor took away all of my fears of dealing with a highly complex immigration matter. Mr. Kramer is joy to work with and I am pleased to highly recommend him to anyone trying to navigate an immigration matter at any stage. I believe Mr. Kramer would, not only meet, but also exceed, your expectation should you choose him as your immigration attorney. I will be happy to speak with you further or answer any questions.
