I worked with Kate as part of Jacob Sapochnick's law office team.
She managed to prepare my O1 visa case. It's very complicated visa and need a lot of work to be done.
I was very impressed by Kate's interest and deep dive in to my product. I am sure that to prepare case correctly, attorney should clearly understand what is your product about, understand key features and Kate perfectly coped with this task. It's uncommon for attorneys. Most of them just give you few "minutes" of their time and are not really interested into understanding your product subject.
Kate was involved in every detail from the beginning to the end.
Also I was also impressed that Kate is always in touch and always reply really really fast and in timely manner. Hi is able to work really fast! It's uncommon among attorneys - typically they are slow and you always wait and wait for news from them.
She is real professional and I wish her great career and hope we have a chance to work together once again.
I highly recommend Kate!

I have worked with Kate on several - all successful - cases, including obtaining my L1, renewing my L1, obtaining a National Interest Waiver, and obtaining a Green Card. She also successfully worked with my co-founder on similar - again all successful - cases. I may not have my Green Card today if it wasn’t for Kate. Working with her has been one of the best personal and business decisions I have ever made.
Immigrating to the US can be a long, frustrating process. I met Kate after having my first L1 request refused by USCIS, and my second request well underway of being refused as well. The previous lawyer I had been working with was a great immigration attorney, but was ill-equiped to deal with tougher cases like mine (immigrating to the US as an entrepreneur can be very difficult…). Kate was able to completely turn around the situation.
Kate is very experienced in dealing with even the toughest cases. She’s helped me successfully put together my immigration strategy (which Visa to apply for, when to apply and renew, how to approach the Green Card process). She then helped me put together my cases, successfully advising me on what critical information to put forward. Finally, she fought for my cases when UCSIS was uncooperative - citing law excerpts and reminding them the rules which they are legally bound to follow (and often maliciously don't). This last point is extremely important and makes the difference between great and world class lawyers.
For all these reasons I wholeheartedly recommend working with Kate.

I really enjoyed working with Ekaterina first for my H1B case process and second for my Green Card. She is very responsible, knowledgeable and time sensitive . She is very clear on what to expect and what steps to follow during the case process. She is very responsive to questions you might have. From her side all papers will be processed with no delays. I very recommend working with Kate. You will be in good hands.

Ekaterina helped us to get O1 visas (Extraordinary Ability) for me and my business partner within just 3 weeks. Usually these application takes 3 - 6 months to file. She was very professional, she collected all the documents needed, gave us feedback on each and every single one, advised on how to improve and strengthen our application. She was extremely responsible, she worked even weekends to make it in time! We are very happy with her work and highly recommend her as a specialist.

I thought it was a mission Impossible but Katherine made it. I had to file an O-1 visa application within 30 days. If we would be late for 1 day, we would have to leave the US, this could pretty much ruin the future of the company we’ve been establishing in Silicon Valley. I had no documents ready for the process and Katherine made my application from the scratch. It was very stressful and I was amazed by how calm and perfectly professional Katherine was and how quick the process of fulfilling the requirements of our application was. Now, thanks to her, our extraordinary ability visas are granted and our startup is quickly developing in the US. I highly recommend Katherine as a lawyer with a great pleasure.

We contacted Kate to get clarification with regards to H1B visa, H4 EAD and Green Card. She clearly answered all of our questions with ease and was very smart about the subject. Thank you Kate.

I worked with Ekaterina on my O1 visa. She was involved in very detail from the beginning to the end. It was said that to get an O1 for people with special skills in business is extremly difficult. She still took on the case and was not only super professional throughout the process but also creative and positive in the moments when I was about to lose the hope. She kept me on schedule and was very responsive in our communication taking into account it was remote process. I would highly recommend her to any professional or startup. Thank you Ekaterina!!!

I had a great experience with attorney Ekaterina Powell. I was in an urgent need of finding the right attorney to help me with H1B extension. My case is quite complicated, so I talked with five attorneys in Chicago. I was lucky to find Law Offices of Jacob J. Sapochnick online, even though their office is in San Diego. I talked with Ekaterina, she was very kind to answer all questions.
I also asked many other questions by emails about H1B and green card. She never hesitate to answer all of my concerns even though I was not sure whether I would be using their service. she explained everything thoroughly and completely.
I also very appreciated Mr. Jacob J. Sapochnick took my case.
It was very easy to follow Ekaternina instructions. She is very professional, educated, very up-to-date on immigration law and she really cares about your case. She is also thoughtful and detail, so my boss do not need to do too much work.
Her assistant Vladimira is also very fast to prepare all documents, they did amazing great team work! My case was approved in one week, I was so released from that pressure.
In summary, I highly recommend Ekaterina (Law office of Jacob J. Sapochnick) and team to help you with your immigration case!

I would recommend Kate, because she is very professional, responsible and puts all her knowledge and effort in work she is doing. She helped me with my personal case and walked me thru every step of the process. I can't be thankful enough for her help! You are in good hands with her.
