Marie is without a doubt the best and most professional immigration lawyer that I had a pleasure to work with. Thanks to her dedication and hard work, my F-1 reinstatement has been approved. She made everything simple and easy to understand. Marie is not only a great lawyer, but she is also responsible and honest person. She reviews cases very carefully and is always on top of everything. Marie responds to calls and emails right away and she always keeps you updated. I would highly recommend Marie to anyone who needs an immigration lawyer.

Marie did an amazing work. She got my E2 investor visa and also got the one of my wife, in less than a month.
Thanks to her I'm able to open our business in time and focus on all my projects.
the most professional attorney i have come across.
Amazingly helpful and always knowledgeable and responsive.
Thank you so much for helping us and making this come true.

Marie is the most professional and responsible attorney that I’ve met. I had the fortune to work with her for my H1B application.
My case is complicated. I have a H1B denial history because of the bad job my previous attorney did. I spent more than half of a month to find a professional attorney who can help me with my case. I was fortunate to be recommended to Marie. Marie timely helped me file a motion to reopen. She was very efficient and finished everything within ONE WEEK. She corrected every mistake my previous attorney made and provided USCIS with 10+ paged sufficient evidence for the Motion to Reopen. The success change of Motion to Reopen is pretty low. But Marie made it. The request of Motion to Reopen was approved and my original H1B case was reopened. However, the information provided by my previous attorney interfered with my petition, my case was denied in the end. But the efforts Marie put into my case is really outstanding.
Considering my visa status, Marie recommended me with several plans and encouraged me to file a new petition in 2016. Although I almost gave up for several times, Marie always tried her best to help me and was patient for my endless questions. She did more than an attorney normally does. With her help, I decided to file a new petition in 2016 and it successfully got approved. Although we got an RFE, Marie wrote a well-organized reply to RFE with limited information provided by me.
Particularly worth mentioning is that Marie also helped with my visa interview training. She gave me professional advice and taught me how to answer tough questions strategically. Finally my visa got approved! It should be attributed to Marie’s hard work and all the efforts she put into my case.
Legal status is more than everything for a foreigner. If you need immigrant/nonimmigrant visa help, please reach out to Marie. She is the BEST attorney ever. You won’t need to worry about anything by working with her. I’d like to recommend her to all my friends who need immigrant help.
Final comment is:
visa approval =to be lucky enough to get lottery + work with a PROFESSIONAL ATTORNEY.
