Joel was so helpful in my husbands case. We went to Joel not knowing anything about Residency, and when we came out of our first consultation with him, we felt so much better about what was to come. He answered all of our questions, and prepared us for either a good or a bad outcome. If we had any questions, he would respond within 24 hours, even on the weekend sometimes!! It was great and he is very personable, making jokes (at appropriate times). In the end, my husband was granted the Temporary Residency, and we have one more year before we can apply for permanent residence for him. We are still happily married, celebrating our 2 year anniversary this year (4 years total). I would highly recommend Joel to anyone looking for help in Immigration Law. As far as prices go, he was very reasonably priced.

My wife is Somali and we were turned away from other attorney's due to the complexity of our case but Joel accepted us immediately. We were initially denied but Joel appealed, fiercely, I might add and my wife and I were approved. Thank you so much Joel!!!! Hands down the best immigration counselor!!

If you are looking for an immigration lawyer please don't go anywhere else!!! Honestly. Stop looking, you found him. I don't know how long Joel has been in practice but it seems like maybe from the beginning of time? He knows everything. If Gandolf was an immigration lawyer.. Joel would be Gandolf.
All jokes aside, I researched many lawyers and made many contact attempts, had a few consultations, and I was always left disappointed and not feeling confident in paying for their laughable services. From my first conversation with Joel I knew he was different, and was on top of things. He made what can be an extremely stressful experience seem easy. Honestly, EASY. He's organized, RELIABLE, and he knows immigration. My husband is now a permanent resident thanks to Joel and his expertise.
I wish I could personally speak to anyone considering using him, so I could tell you what he did for my husband and I. I want to shout it from the rooftops. He is the best in the business and has never lost a case.
So save yourself and call him!!!!

Attorney Joel Friedman is a kind and ethical attorney who focuses his practice on immigration law. He is a great networker. We enjoyed a Pat Metheny concert at Anthology. It was an excellent concert and a great opportunity to get to know Joel better. Since then, I have referred all immigration law questions to him.
