Great attorney!
Overall, I cannot recommend Ms. Emenike highly enough. Her unwavering dedication, expertise, and commitment to client satisfaction set her apart as a truly exceptional immigration lawyer. My husband's adjustment of status was processed so quickly with her help. If you are in need of legal representation for immigration matters, look no further than Doreen Emenike.

When I was looking for a immigration attorney I wanted some one who knew the process. Doreen was exactly what I was looking for. She explained everything in detail, step by step and was with me every step of the way. I was nervous on my interview day but was relieved to see her there by my side. I would highly recommend Doreen for anyone looking for help with immigration status. I can’t thank her enough!

EVERYTHING YOU WILL EVER ASK FOR IN AN ATTORNEY
I was informed by numerous attorneys that my case cant be solved, some charged me arms and legs for their services. To a point, i started doubting my eligibility and qualification for citizenship. Until i met Doreen, right there she told me that, for the fact that everything is ok with my records, that i should file for citizenship. Fast forward to this day, in less than 12months, am going for my Oath ceremony. She's kind, soft spoken, detailed, patient. Doreen even came with me for my interview, still surprises me. Doreen is everything you will seek in an attorney. Having goosebumps as i write this. Am forever indebted, and i will beat my chest and recommend her services and professional advise to any one. Thank you Doreen.

Fiancee Visa
Doreen is one of the most intelligent, polished and calm attorneys I've ever had the privilege of knowing. She knows the complex intricacies of immigration laws but knows how to explain them to everyday people in a way that is understandable to her clients. She broke down and explain the process of how things would likely work out for my fiancee and I if we followed her advise. She didn't make any promises but said we had a good shot. We followed her advise and things worked out even better than we expected. She is very detail oriented in her preparation style and that makes a world of difference! DO everything she tells you. Believe me. It works! I highly recommend her to any and everyone! She knows her stuff. My best advise is to do what she suggest! This woman knows her stuff! The BEST I've ever worked with and I tried quite a few!

Excellent lawyer
Doreen Emenike was the best lawyer! I knew of Doreen after she worked with my sister on her asylum case which they won and today she is a U.S citizen. 15 years later, she helped my mother (in her sixties) with her citizenship application after she had a rough naturalization interview. After Doreen and her team organized all the paperwork and took on her case, her application was approved weeks after. As for me, I became a resident almost 10 years ago and after a naturalization interview I was placed in removal proceedings 5 years later. I immediately sort legal counsel from Doreen who had worked with my family over the years. She was knowledgeable, detail oriented, and very cautious. She got acquainted with my large immigration file, worked to organize every documentation I needed. She was supportive and encouraging, and firm through the 2 years we worked together, and through a very difficult process. The case was terminated in 2015 and I kept my green card. I'm now working on processing my naturalization application. I'll forever be appreciative of all the work Doreen has done for me and my family. She is definitely the lawyer you need!
