Highly recommend Charity Anderson
Hi Charity, We just want to thank you for your exceptional guidance and support throughout the green card application process for my wife. Your prompt responses helped alleviate our concerns when the USCIS online portal indicated longer than expected wait times or delays in processing the required forms. We are grateful your your expertise in ensuring all documents and fees were file correctly. We got her green card in less than 4 months like you stated from the beginning when we hired you.

Just what we needed
I can't express how grateful my fiance' and I are that we chose Charity. I live in Michigan, so I filled out a request for help. I can't put into words how stressful that first step was. Charity was the first to call, and she spoke very reassuring and calmly that she would definitely help us to make sure all of our paperwork was in order. I can honestly say Charity is one of the most patient persons I know. Both my fiance' and I are overthinkers. I must have emailed Charity I can't recall how many times because we constantly reference online 'examples' despite Charity giving us everything we needed for proof. She caught two very costly errors that if i had sent my application in on my own would have been given a RFE! Because of my mistakes, our filing was delayed. Although she deserved a break, she still went over my application so as to get it submitted as soon as she could. That spoke the loudest when I look back on how she 'took care of us' literally. I made the best choice although 3 time zones away! If I lived closer, I would have given her a hug, but with Covid all i could say is Thank you! I will definitely retain her for our Green card!

Very Knowledgeable and Brilliant Attorney
I had a pending case which took years. I consulted with a lot of lawyers and they all advised that I withdraw my pending application and reapply because even if a decision is to be made regarding my pending application, it would be denied. I consulted with Charity and she advised that I need not withdraw my pending application. I hired her and within 4 - 5 months my case was approved. I’m so glad I encountered and hired Charity and took her advise not to withdraw my pending case as this could have caused me more delay. There are a lot of immigration lawyers out there but I can boldly say few are knowledgeable and Charity is one of the knowledgeable ones. I highly recommend Charity to anyone with an immigration case.

My favorite attorney
Just when I was looking for help regarding immigration, I found a great attorney in Charity Anderson. I was very skeptical at the beginning but she familiarized me into the whole process. With her knowledge and experience in the immigration matters, I hired her immediately but was low in confidence and there were also some fears of getting abandoned, especially due to virtual communication and time zones. As I progressed working with her, my confidence grew and so did my trust in her. She never left my side and answered every query of mine and understood my situation and made great suggestions to make the whole process go smoothly first time right which is exactly what and how I wanted it to be. She was extremely professional and I wouldn’t have done it any other way, and I am very fortunate that Charity Anderson has decided to reach out to me on that day that I needed her the most. She is obvious choice for anyone who needs help with immigration.

As always, best wishes to you and your family. Charity Anderson, Esq.

I was searching website for an immigration lawyer and found Charity Anderson. Came from Pakistan few days ago and needed immediate guidance. I highly recommended her as I found her very knowledgeable about most up to date immigration laws and situations after COVID-19. She took time to answer all my questions in a most professional manner and assisted me in the best possible way. Thank you Charity for all your help.
