HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I am a repetitive client for Attorney Nader Davaei's immigration representation services. He is honest, knowledgeable and very professional. He has helped us with adjustment of status of myself my sister and now is representing my husband. With the stress this situation causes it definitely made a difference for us to have an attorney that is always responsive to our questions, doubts and any concerns regarding our case and progress. You never get a blank answer he always has clear and to the point answers. His cost compare to other attorney we consult with is very reasonable and works with his clients on payment plans, this itself is a plus. He initiated my case with a time line that I was impressed it was met despite COVID situation. He is the attorney of my choice and highly recommend him. Thank you Nick once again for all you have done for me and my family.

Helpful, knoledgeable, patient, responsive, responsible!
Nick was great from the very begining. I talked to SEVERAL lawyers, and he was definitely the one to stand out. He explained everything in detail in our first call and was super polite. Along the process he was responsive, present, nice, detailed, you can definitely tell he cares about his clients. I was pretty nervous and I do tend to overthink, and he was really patient. He was always positive and super honest when it came to my case. I am super grateful for his support and glad I chose him. Highly recommended.

Very helpful attorney when you have a complicated case
Nick helped me with my green card's removal of condition application. He is really on top of things. It was a few weeks since the first meeting with him when I decided to initiate the case. During the second meeting, I saw he pulled up the notes he took from our first meeting a few weeks back neatly scanned in his computer. He is professional, knowledgeable, and diligent. He's been super responsive in the last two years to my messages and he provided a lot of useful advice for the extra complications in my case (travel, RFE, etc.). My green card case was recently approved, much more smoothly than I thought. Thanks to Nick. I definitely would recommend him to my friends.

Emigration attorney
I strongly recommend Nick Davaei's immigration services. He has great knowledge, is expeditious, and very friendly. He definitely is very well-well versed in all manners of this area of the law. He is also empathetic and patient with people's concerns. His fees are very reasonable too; I know because I did my research before I contacted him.

I really happy to write this review about our attorney and I am really blessed that I got him to represent my marriage-based green card application it's just in one year I got my green card and also got SSN and EAD in just 5 months. he is very professional and gave me a proper list about documentation so there is no chance of denial of my application. He is punctual, and give my email and text replied very quick he really cares for his client. I am like a person who wanted to know about everything so I asked him 100 questions and he answered very patiently. Application filed:- June 2018 SSN and EAD and Travel Card:- October 2018 Green card Interview:- June 2019 Approved:- June 2019 Santa Ana court if I choose I can write many paragraphs about him but I don't want to take it too long if you have immigration application I definitely recommend him Thank you so much again, Mr.Nick Really Appriciated

Excellence and professionalism
I have no words to describe how thankful I am for the excellent attorney’s services of Mr. Nader Davaei. He took care of my case with the highest grade of professionalism and efficiency. I would highly recommend that anyone who is looking for an Inmmigration attorney, who is honest, compassionate and with great work ethics, to look no further and hire Mr. Davaei. He accompanied me to my adjustment of status interview and took the time to study my case and made sure everything was correctly done. As result, my petition was immediately approved right at the time of the interview. Thank you Mr. Davaei.

Thank you, I highly recommend.
My mother recently received her green card, thanks to Nick’s hard work and determination. When my mother’s TPS employment permit expired, Nick was the only person willing to renew the permit. He helped us throughout the entire process of getting a green card for my mother. Nick will keep you updated and he is very easy to contact. He usually responds very quick. If you are in need of an exceptional immigration lawyer, look no further. I personally will be recommending Nick to anyone who needs a great lawyer.

Excellent Man.
My friend recommended Mr. Davaei to me. Our case was denied by asylum officer & for further decision has been transferred to the immigration court. the first time my wife & I met him , we explain our case & get positive feedback ,he was sure we can win the court . first I have to say He is really good man & unlike other attorneys most of time he is available to answer you even he can’t answer your phone , will text you when he is free . that was really important point for us due to unfortunately we had bad experiences with other attorney. Our case referred to the most overdetails Judge & we had lots of stress but he gives us confidence & at least after 3 years we won the case last week . Just want to say one more time Thank you Mr. Davaei .

Professional and Reliable Service
Our Family has had a great experience with Nick. He has always been very professional and has made himself available to answer all my questions by phone, email or text message. He was very involved in our case from the beginning to end. I was assisting my husband in becoming a permanent resident and he made the entire process very easy. I have now referred my mother in law and sister in law with his services and would refer others as well.

professionalism to the max
I found Mr. Davaei through Yelp. He handled my H1b case and then my GC case. He is so organized, so professional and so to the point. He truly went above and beyond to fulfill everything that we needed to be done, even took extra steps to make the impossible possible! I already recommended him to many of my friends. He is so easy to work with and super responsive unlike many of the people you encounter with in this field. Me and my husband can not be more thankful !

Nick is a true professional! It was a pleasure working with him! Very pleased with the way our special ed case turned out and I know for a fact that it's because of Nick's involvement!

Very knowledgeable
I was referred to Attorney Nick Davaei for my child’s special needs; without divulging too much information, my case was truly unique and challenging.

Nader was referred to me through one of my friends. He represented my mom for her citizenship case in June 2017. With his remarkable devotion, exceptional knowledge and precise legal advice, he enabled us to achieve the optimal result, while not making the process cumbersome in the slightest. We have been very pleased with his professionalism, honest attitude and very reasonable fee. He is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him without any hesitation.

Professional and wonderful to work with
I have known Mr. Davaei for about 4 years now since our firm expanded to California from North Carolina. As a Merger and Acquisition attorney, I run into investors interested in using EB 5 as a vehicle to obtain residency in the US. Mr. Davaei is my go to guy for such legal services. It has been a pleasure working with you and looking forward to many years of cooperation.

Professional and personal
We were extremely pleased by the immigration services provided to us by Nick in 2013. He is extremely knowledgeable, a great listener and highly efficient, making the process effortless. We respect his professional demeanor, while never forgetting that personal touch that immediately put us at ease. Our subsequent meetings have been nothing short of wonderful. Nick is the full package when it comes to an attorney whose priority is his client.
