i just got a successful response on my green card application and I must take time out to thank Atty. Perry and his hardworking staff.
They have overseen my paper work from the beginning till the end. In between we had a lot of other extension fillings and they were always prompt and knew exactly what they were doing.
Many many years ago I had quit their law offices and transferred to another law office! IT WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE I EVER MADE. The other law office spoilt my wife's paper work and couldn't do anything about it and my wife lost her status! Moreover, it cost me a lot of delays.
Finally I came back to the law offices of Atty Perry and step by step we got back into filling the appropriate papers to get me and my wife a green card!
Atty. Perry, me and my wife truly appreciate your guidance, patience & knowledge.
We wish more power and success to you, your staff and your law office.
To miss Emily, we cannot thank you enough for your hard work, patience, kindness & dedication to our paper work. I wish you all the best as we move forward together towards achieving my citizenship.

I am a native US citizen and married my longterm boyfriend, a Spaniard. We were one of the first same sex couples married in Chicago when Illinois same sex marriage law became effective in June 2014. Because this was relatively uncharted territory we were especially concerned about negotiating the complicated Green Card procedure. I am a Louisiana resident where same sex marriage is/was? not available and proposed to my now spouse while we were on vacation in Chicago. Because of personal and financial reasons, we decided he would remain and we would apply for a Green Card.
I have a legal background so I began the long arduous process of trying to figure out how the US Citizenship and Immigration Services operates and the maze of forms and fees; it was daunting and scary. After a lot of effort, I realized, like any legal matter, it's not what you know, it's what you DON'T KNOW that causes problems. I sat at the computer for days, reviewed forms, filing fees, USCIS explanations and guides and spoke withe USCIS agents by phone. I also did the general internet research you'd expect and was frustrated, stressed out and frightened to make a mistake. All of this despite having an excellent education at a fine private university and law school and 20 years experience as a lawyer. I was over my head. What to do?
I spoke to several organizations that handle same sex issues, and communicated with a few lawyers here in my state. I was still uneasy when I spoke to a close friend who had gotten married in California and applied for a Green card for his same sex European spouse. He had hired John Perry and Associates and got a prompt favorable response=Green card.
The complicated USCIS process has to be followed to the letter, the USCIS fees are high and much effort and attention to detail is required.
After an initial conversation with John Perry, we both breathed a huge sigh of relief. He reassured us, made me realize that there WERE gaps in my knowledge. We hired him even though he is in California and we are in Louisiana. We had a very fair payment schedule.
We had constant contact with his immigration specialist Rouiza Causay. She was very kind and friendly, responsive and calming. We were given direct and explicit instructions for each step of the process.
NOTE: The Green card process requires substantial effort on behalf of the applicants. It is most definitely a team effort; you must be proactive and forthcoming as in any legal situation. Disclosure allows for possible issues to be anticipated. Rouiza spent many calls clarifying matters and John Perry made himself available whenever we felt we needed his advice or opinion. Louis the firm communications person was friendly, and passed along information or requests when we called.
So the deadlines and events happened, documents prepared, sent in, appointments (like biometrics) promptly kept, payments made and we received notice of the highly anticipated INTERVIEW DATE.
We were nervous from all the nightmare stories that are out there, the high stakes involved, the effort and resources invested, plus the newness and uncertainty of the same sex issues throughout the country.
Rouiza walked us through, we practiced and put in our tremendous effort to collect and catalogue the documents which evidenced our relationship and married life.
Prepared, we had our interview. The agent was cordial and professional, he took some of the many documents and pictures we had with us. Some questions about where we met, how we kept a long distance relationship going; he acknowledged the same sex issues and the wait that had made us endure. He told us ON THE SPOT our Green card would be granted; it arrived about a week later.
I honestly believe that we had such a positive result from the guidance of John and Rouiza. They were excellent leaders of our "team." I highly recommend them to anyone in the Green card process. Good luck.

John Perry & Associates help me to get my Green Card. for so many years I thought my case was hopeless. It was mishandled by another lawyer before him. Thank God I met our family friend and recommended Atty. John Perry to me. It was really a relief to know that he could do something about my case and explained to me everything regarding the legal process. Atty John and his staffs are all very supportive and helpful. They see to it that your questions and concerns are being answered. Very straight to the point. If not for Atty Perry I wouldn't be here. I really owe them so much and I couldn't find the right word to say how "thankful" we are (my wife and I) for all of this. Now, they started to work on my wife's papers/petition so she could join me here. Isn't that great?! after so many years we'll be together again. One of the happiest moments in my life. And that's because of Atty John Perry. Also, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to Emily Raya for being there for me all the time. Seriously, I bug her a lot :) but she's so patient, very helpful and never complain. That's how professional they are. Even with my eyes closed I will personally recommend Atty John Perry & Associates. It's really worth your money. Rest assured you'll get a very good result. One day I will drop by at their office just to personally thank them.

My husband had a very complex case but John Perry and his associate Rouiza, gave us the assurance that we need. From the very first consultation, they willingly answered all our inquiries and patiently explained the process. They are very knowledgeable, confident and honest. They went above and beyond to be reachable and responsive to all our questions and concerns. John and Rouiza are always a couple of steps ahead. They are direct to the point and will not give you the run around. They will tell you what they can and cannot do. They are professional and yet showed compassion and true concern for us. These are some of the reasons why we trusted their services and would highly recommend to our family and friends. I think John Perry is one of the few honest lawyers around.

A close friend who had previously utilized his services referred me to Mr. Perry. I was not disappointed. Scheduling the initial consultation was seamless and the call was prompt and very informative. My case was difficult and convoluted, but Mr. Perry was able to break it down and explain each facet, helping me understand the different obstacles and the available options for overcoming each. He was very accessible throughout the duration of my process, which was lengthy. I highly recommend the office of John Perry & Associates.

I had two not-so-great experiences with other immigration attorneys in Los Angeles, before being recommended to John Perry. John was (and is) incredibly knowledgeable about the immigration system and the entire process in which one has to go through in order to obtain a green card and/or citizenship in the United States. He and his associate, Rouiza, always responded quickly to any questions I had, whether I sent them via email or called the office directly and they took an immense amount of time to explain things to me whenever I wasn't clear on something. I felt genuinely supported by John and his entire team and knew I was well taken care of when they were representing me during the immigration process. My husband and I had been working on getting my green card for more than four years before meeting with John and within less then a year, John and his team successfully assisted me in finally obtaining my green card. Lastly, because of John Perry (and Rouiza), I was finally able to leave the US to fly home and see my family. I will always recommend John Perry to everyone I know. Thank you John - and thank you, Rouiza. I am so grateful for everything you've done for my family and I.

I would like to recommend John Perry and associates P.C. to anyone with confident.

I'd like to commed Atty. John Perry and his crew of hardworking and gracious staff. They have been taking care of my family since 2002 or 2003. I was initially introduced to Atty. Eli Rich but was endorsed to Atty. Perry when Atty. Rich decided to retire. He is easy to talk with and approachable (unlike other lawyers who seem very intimidating that you can't even ask questions freely). His law firm's staff are also very attentive and patient in explaining and answering any questions you may have. I won't have second thoughts of referring their team to my friends and relatives. I'm really grateful for all the things you've done for us. More Power!

I had a very tough case and John Perry stood by us from beginning to end. He truly cares and it's not all about the money. I would have never got my citizenship if it wasn't for him. He's amazing. Truly smart professional and took care of me and my husband as if we were family. Thank you so much!
