I met Ginger Jacobs at a community forum on immigration several years ago. I was impressed with her advocacy on immigration issues that few lawyers were talking about. I can see that immigration law is more than just a job for her-- it is a passion, and I felt she really cared about me and my family.
When I married my spouse from another country, she helped us through the process of getting a green card. Her staff made the interview process for the green card easy, and I felt well-represented when we went to the interview. We are now going through the process of obtaining citizenship for my spouse.
In addition to the green card, she also helped us obtain deferred action for childhood arrivals status for another family member.
We have consulted Ginger on other family immigration issues, too. I feel grateful to have found a lawyer that I can trust, and has the experience to give me and my family the advice we need to make good decisions. Ginger Jacob's expertise and dependability makes a process fraught with uncertainty so much less stressful.

Ginger is an exceptionally talented attorney with uncompromising integrity. She helped me become a US Citizen after I almost gave up, having battled the system for nearly 6 years.
What differentiates Ginger from other attorneys I had met and hired, is that in addition to having an incredibly thorough knowledge and passion for immigration law, she also has a deep level of care and compassion for her clients, as if they were her own family. This gave me as a foreigner - a much needed feeling of comfort and support at a time of great uncertainty and stress.
Ginger is experienced, resourceful, focused and has an impeccable judgment. She provided rock solid representation during my immigration interviews, was always available for counseling and support, and even came to my oath ceremony when I finally became a US Citizen.
A Harvard graduate, most brilliant legal mind with a heart of gold that will never rest until "the little guy" is given a voice and done right by the system - an absolutely winning formula for success in your pursuit of the American Dream.

Ginger has helped us on a variety of complicated immigration issues over the years in addition to our main focus of keeping our E2 Visas current. We have worked with many other attorneys over the years in Canada and the United States and felt Ginger was the only one able to provide us with sound ideas and creative solutions. Ginger and her team are very well organized, efficient and professional. They are worth every penny.

Exceptional in every sense of the word, there is no attorney I trust more in handling complex immigration matters. She knows so much about so many areas within immigration that whenever I need advice, she is the first, and often only person I contact. The only thing that rivals Ginger's intelligence and comprehensive knowledge is her heart of gold: she cares for her clients like no one I know. I recommend her without reserve and consider fortunate those who choose her as their immigration attorney.
