Green Card
Attorney Atoosa Vakili is a true Angel sent by God. She did outstanding legal work in our immigration case and our daughter. If I had to recommend a lawyer to anyone, it would be Mrs. Vakili without any hesitation. My journey to becoming a permanent resident has been a very stressful one, but after my wife and I hired Mrs. Vakili, she laid everything out for us and helped us every step of the way. We started from nothing, and Mrs. Vakili worked very hard with us, even though we had less than a month to prepare. She was available any time we needed her (even on holidays) and always made sure we were on top of what we needed to do. She treated us like family, guided us through this case, and gave us a lot of life advice because we are just a very young couple who needed a lot of help. Mrs. Vakili was there for us in more ways than we can even imagine, and we are so thankful that we met her and could work with her. We both agree that this was the best decision we have made by far. She is passionate about her cases, just as she was with ours, and was determined to come out of it successfully. She gave us the hope and confidence we needed when we thought we couldn't do it anymore. We recommend her to anyone that needs immigration service, and we are delighted that Mrs. Vakili represented our daughter and us.

Excellent immigration attorney
After I got job offer my employer contacted to Atoosa Vakili's office, After consulting with her they hired her office to do my case which was getting labor certification (Perm- EB2- Work Authorization and Adjustment of Status). We communicated via phone and email most of the time because our company is in Huston, TX . She was extremely responsive throughout the process that involved me and my employer. We felt we were always well informed about any procedure to come. Everything was straight forward under her guidance and happened as she expected at beginning. Our questions were always answered with accuracy and competence and in a timely manner. We never had issue or problem in my case . In addition, I found her and her paralegals to be a very nice persons and felt comfortable that Atoosa was giving me right advices at all time. I would strongly recommend her legal assistance to anyone I know.
