Great law firm, great results.
Two days ago I recieved the wonderful news at the end of our interview that my wife would be receiving her green card after one year from applying and entering the country where we first met. This even after a hold up due to a very big mistake USCIS had made in reviewing our application. Questioning my ability to be a sponsor to my own wife, which was unjustly put into question. Thankfully I had been assigned Karine as my case manager. A very kind, understanding, patient, knowledgeable, and good listener on our side. She gave the attention needed to our very unique case. Karine was willing to put in the time to provide exceptional result detailed work; it was hard and took much effort. But, yielded the results that were guaranteed and agreed upon by the firm and ourselves. Karine went above and beyond, full stop. My wife and I are forever grateful to the firm and our attorney Marie as well. Who was willing and helped us to approach our unique situation we were facing with our case. Giving us the ability to properly communicate and create documentation sufficient for a CPA, and my Congressman, to make things right through the use of facts and the law. The firm, but mainly Karine our caseworker and Marie our attoney - my wife and I will forever be thankful for. They simply took a complicated case, presided over it with an eagle's eye & prowess, and delivered timely results as if there was never an issue at all. Here my wife stands with her green card, and prior to that her SSN and work permit. The coaching for the interview was on point and proved to be proper preparation. We did have a great interviewer as well. We walked in with confidence in our case and our ability to handle, with the simple truth, anything thrown at us. Between the many complications, Karine and Marie proved to be top notch, as well as the firm that they represent and that we utilized. It was worth the price my wife and I paid, no exceptions. We would recommend this firm in particular, and our provided team within it to anyone, anytime. We definitely will be using them again in the future for any and all our immigration needs. Thank you everyone who had a hand in making this happen. Thus, by your actions and the results - not question the price or decision we made. Such a rarity these days.

Just got my Green Card - EB1A category
I worked with Jacob's law firm recently for my green card journey. It has been really awesome to work with this lawfirm. Jacob cares a lot about his clients and understands their situation, and makes sure that the process goes smoothly. I started this journey, with self-doubt that it would be very hard to get EB1A, but Jacob and my case manager Anahita, really knew the potential of my profile and how to best put it forward. The response rate of both Jacob and Anahita was super fast. Within 2-3 weeks, my application AOS was prepared. When I got RFE, Anahita made sure to send the response to USCIS within a day or two. I have been very lucky to find out about Jacob's lawfirm, and really recommend for anyone who is looking to get their immigration sorted, to work with this lawfirm.

O1 VISA
After we decided to apply for a O1 VISA, we came across Jacob Sapochnik's law office through YouTube. After a short phone with Jacob, we knew, we're in best hands for a professional Visa process. We came in contact with Mrs. Ohadi, from Jacobs team, who supported and guided us through the whole process. Her help and professionalism was beyond our expectations and leaded us successfully to our VISA. I highly recommend Jacobs law office and his team, it was truly our best decision and the way to success!

I was just approved for a 5 year E2 Visa
I was just granted a 5 year E2 visa with the help of the Law Offices of Jacob Sapochnick. Attorney Marie and Anahita were responsible for managing the day to day of my account and I recommend them whole-heartedly to all of my friends and contacts who need help with a more complicated application. Thank you for relieving my stress and helping me through this process.

I highly recommend Jacob!
I came across Jacob’s Youtube channel recently while I was looking for an attorney to get support with an immigration case. I must admit he is very knowledgeable, reputable and reachable. It worth mentioning that his team is so professional which made the overall process very smooth. While Jacob is based in California and I live in Texas, the communication was always clear, and I’m really satisfied with the experience and the customer service provided. I highly recommend Jacob!

Review based on Nine years working with Jacob
Jacob has put together an excellent team of professional immigration attorneys. Thanks to his brilliant strategy, we managed to open a second branch of our company in the U.S, and this year we finally received our green card! We trusted his advice all along, and it never let us down. He and his team helped us navigate multiple visa renewals, request for evidence, and surprise immigration visits. We were pleasantly surprised to have a specialized attorney for each step of the way providing crucial insights and tons of experience. Jacob got us from A to Z, and I highly recommend hiring his firm on your side.

O1 approved in one go.
I was referred to Jacob by a friend. I applied for the O1 visa. Ms. Marie handled my case. Both Marie and Jacob have been proactive and supportive through the whole process. They were easy to access and helped me understand the nuances of the process. Marie is brilliant at preparing the application! Jacob is friendly and he steps in from time to time to overlook everything. I can now say that these are people who really want you to win. I would recommend them without a doubt! I got my O1 approved in one go!

Business visa
My saver ! Not enough words to thank Jacob and his incredible team for a Service above and beyond expectations. Kimberly was available at any point and time for a good advice or just to hear me stress out (and I did) Jacob is extremely professional and even though he has plenty of costumers I definitely felt taken care off. The guidance and advices during the process are important and crucial for any process to succeed and Jacob’s team is excellent at that. Thank you for taking a painful process and making it bearable.

O1 Visa Application
I highly recommend Sapochnick law firm, they made my O-1 visa case as strong as possible which got approval in less than 10 days, with no RFE and special thanks to Unica. She is very knowledgeable and was always responsive, clarifying my doubts throughout the entire process and cared about every step of the process as much as myself… Looking forward to working with you all in the future.

Jacob is Fantastic and Amazing
I have known Jacob for Last 12 years, I have seen him being the same person when his business was small and also see him the same when his Business has been growing. He has been with me through the thick and thin of my immigration journey. He is highly knowledgeable and his staff is as knowledgeable as he is. He has never lost me a Case and Every case that i have won is a miracle. From my F-1, H-1 and now GC has been the product of his and his Staffs wisdom and knowledgeable advise. As a person he is very kind and as an attorney he will work with you. He is also very competitive and pushes himself to learn and understand new technologies which is very seldomly seen with Attorneys. I rate him as one of the best in Immigration business. Jacob is an Attorney with compassion and Great Heart towards immigrants and others. He is Simply the best. Thank you Jacob! Also my sincere thanks also goes to Jessica,Paola and Unica too. Thank you everyone

Very helpful and fast
We hired Jacob Jan Sapochnick's office for my immigration/green card. The entire process was smooth and as quick as could be expected. All of their time estimates were right on target and they were there with any questions we had. Highly recommend them. The cost is worth the peace of mind they provided. We worked with Lupe, Paola and Marie.

Fast and helpful consultation
I contacted Jacob to help me with a student visa situation I got myself into. It took less than an hour to be on a call with him and he was super quick and responsive. On the call, I found Jacob to be very easy to talk to, he took the time to listen to my problem and I did not feel rushed at all. Overall, I found Jacob to be very knowledgeable about the topic of immigration, he even opened my eyes about options I didn't even know I had and he showed the utmost professionalism throughout the entire process.

Changing the status to Student F1 Visa
It's very comfortable and pleasant to work with Law Office of Jacob J Sapochnick. I'm very thankful to Inessa and Grace who have done successfully my Student visa case. During the waiting period they were very attentive to me and consulted about every issue of my case. With such professionals I didn't doubt about successful outcome of my case. They helped me to prepare all required documents, all the deadlines were strictly observed. Long story short: I very glad that made choice to this company. Special thanks to Lylia who always helped with my questions too and organized meetings with my attorneys. Now i'm a student and enjoy my new status:)
