Posted by Jeff
Well, it's final and my fiance' was granted her fiance' visa. It's a process that I now understand to be a lot less stressful and a lot less complicated because of the great service and efforts of this law office.
I began the process in September 2015 with a simple email. Soon thereafter I was contacted by Allan Lolly himself and he was gracious enough to speak with me. He took the time to answer all my questions and "walk me through" this process from start to finish. It was obvious he was knowledgeable and quite experienced. After ending the call I researched Allan on line and spoke to some colleagues who satisfied any fears I had of dealing with an attorney that I had never met. From that point forward the reluctance was gone and I hired Allan and his firm. I am very glad I did.
Allan has a great team of paralegals who complete most of the work and I was glad they had time to answer all our questions and to guide us through the process. Right down to the practice questions for the interview, everything was provided and we were well informed.
At the US Embassy, the packet of information provided in order from the firm made the process quite easy for the reviewing Embassy officers. When we provided all the information as directed by Allan and his team, the process and the interviews were completed quickly and easily.
I am so happy that I utilized Allan and his team for the process. I will continue to use them in the process of the green cards and moving my fiance (soon to be wife) toward complete citizenship in a few short years.

I hired Mr. Lolly's firm to coordinate my K-1 Fiance' Visa application process. Mr. Lolly and his associate, Taylor, really went beyond the call of duty in preparing the necessary forms and providing expert legal advice to make this process run smoothly. You really need to have an experienced legal team who knows how to communicate with various U.S. embassies and consulates on complicated immigration matters. Therefore, I would highly recommend Mr. Lolly's firm to anyone who is contemplating the hiring of legal representation for the K-1 Fiance' Visa application process.

After about a dozen interviews with lawyers in New York City, I felt that Allan was the most positive and confident in dealing with my K-1 Fiancee Visa with a I-212 waiver attached. In regard to the I-212 waiver, Allan stood out from the rest of the lawyers with his optimistic thinking. He explained to me clearly the process as well as the possible outcomes. His time frames were accurate. My fiancee is now with me and we are grateful to Allan and his team for their efforts. I would highly recommend Allan Lolly Law firm to handle any immigration matter.

Allan did an excellent job providing me all the information I needed and answering my questions related to my case. He also reviewed all the documents and asked questions to immigration officials to clarify my case when needed. On a couple of occasions I even got replies from him during the weekend! He's very dedicated and has given me a lot of peace of mind during the process. I would recommend him 100%.

Allan's firm came highly recommended to me from Deron Smallcomb at Easy Fiancé Visas. During a consultation with Deron in December 2013 about obtaining a K-1 visa for my fiancée, I explained that she had a cancelled tourist visa. Deron explained that my fiancée would probably require at minimum a 601 waiver which he did not handle. He referred me to Allan Lolly who I contacted and he promptly called me back. During the consultation with Allan, I learned that my fiancée's case was a bit more complicated than expected. We had a few phone conversations and exchanged e-mails over a two week period during which time Allan explained the waiver process and gathered enough information to make a decision if this was a case he could be successful with. During our final phone conversation, Allan asked for me to explain things going on in my life that could qualify for hardship. After determining that the care I provide for my autistic brother and aging mother would qualify me for a 601 hardship waiver, Allan determined he could represent me and my fiancée and while he did not guarantee that the waiver would be approved, he felt confident that we could obtain a waiver. Allan explained the fees for his service and a payment plan and what types of letters and documents I would need to gather over the coming months, a contract was e-mailed to me and I signed the contract the following day.
Although Allan's firm prepares K-1 visas, his firm worked with Easy Fiancé Visas to prepare the K-1 portion while Allan's firm prepared the 601 and 212 waivers.
Immediately after signing the contracts, I was contacted by Schuyler Lolly who explained the process to me, gave a timeline for how long the process might take and e-mailed me information that would be needed to prepare the waivers. The K-1 process happened relatively quickly but delays in obtaining a passport for my fiancée's daughter slowed the process to a crawl. After almost a year since beginning the process, we finally attended the K-1 interview in Juarez. Just as Allan and Schuyler explained to me, my fiancée was denied the visa but granted the opportunity to file a 601 and 212 waivers. While we waited to get the passports, Schuyler continued to gather information and even put in a FOIA request for border entrance and exit records for my fiancée so that there would be no surprises. After the interview, I sent everything I had gathered over the past year to Allan's firm and Schuyler took everything I had sent and composed a very thorough and accurate brief to accompany the waiver application. It took a few months to put together the entire waiver packet as we had to continue to gather and send information and evidence but in the end I felt very confident about what we had sent. Allan and Schuyler summarized our situation and made a strong case for why it should be approved. It took 6 months for our 601 and 212 waivers to be adjudicated but three days before Christmas 2015, we were approved.
To summarize, my fiancée had a very complicated history of entrances, exits and overstays. The core of the case was that she had worked while living in the states which added misrepresentation to the visa violations. Allan and Schuyler worked with these issues to create a waiver packet based on my need to remain in California to take care of my brother and mother as well as my own responsibilities. Throughout the 1 1/2 years it took to file the waiver, they always remained in communication with me even during the period when we could do nothing except wait. Everything that Allan and Schuyler told me would happen during the process happened as they said it would so there were no surprises. My fiancée is currently in the states now thanks to Allan and Schuyler and we are preparing for our wedding to fulfill the K-1 requirements.
I highly recommend ASL Law Firm for anyone who needs to file the 601 and 212 waivers or advice.
Thanks Allan & Schuyler

Lira and I met online about 7 years ago. Our case was a difficult one because of my Aerophobia. Allan explained that this particular condition was one of the few exemptions to get my fiance a visa. So we hired him and his helper Tami. They both did a wonderful job and we ended up getting a final approval in Oct. 2015. Now , we are married and want to thank Allan and his staff for all their help! We are a very happy couple :-)

If "standing in line" is listed as one of your hobbies, I have nothing to say to you. If walking to the front of the line and being more importannt that picking a good number, you are picking the right lawyer to get your family here as soon as possible the legal way. I live next door to a young couple that faced the federal alone, waited in line for two years, and finally were reunited here in Tennessee. I hired Allan S. Lolly and brought my Peruvian wife home four months later, three months processing in the U.S. and one month processing in Peru. The law firm of Allan S. Lolly has taken away the worry of paperwork rejection from each process for immigration, permanent resident, and most recently U.S. Citizenship. The staff at Allan S. Lolly, especially Taylor, keep are quick to give updates on your process when updates are made available. Taylor's email after the citizenship exam to find out how the exam went felt like a friend holding her breath, waiting for the news. We are so thankful to Allan and Taylor for our happiness and I am very appreciative for all their attention to detail handling our affairs. I highly recommend Allan S. Lolly if you want your case handled quickly and professionally, if time means nothing to you then pick a number and your case will be handled in the order it is received.

This review is for those who have given up hope that their immigration case has reached a full stop!
We were scared and anxious at the thought of never being together as a family after a 212 6(C-i) slap on us. Being based in Uganda, the perception of the immigration maze we would have to go through in order for our case to be heard & even waived at the most, made us give up; We needed a lawyer who would not judge us based on our origin or case at hand! We needed a lawyer who would listen, understand , guide us and give us hope! My husband on the East coast-USA, located the perfect attorney (Allan Scott Lolly) on the West Coast-USA! Despite the distance from the lawyer, Allan's team (Schyler and Tami) got down to work so quick with exceptional professionalism, dedication and hard work, and they got our i601(a) waiver approved FIRST TIME...FIRST TIME!!! And along the way, they gave us hope and comfort that it will be alright! In no time, Scott's team got our i-130 approved, our family visa interview scheduled and i601 waiver filed. The waiver was approved and visas issued and this entire process was all completed in a seamlessly and timely manner. We highly recommend Allan Scott's law firm for all immigration related matters (Even African cases). Schyler even checked on us to ensure that we arrived in USA safely. Thank you Scott, Tami & Schyler, you are extra-ordinary! Keep the good work! Betty & Geoffrey!!
