Best Immigration Attorney
I have been a client of Mr. Sethi for a few years he originally helped me with a petition for my residency card. I have gone with him for every immigration process I need. He is a very knowledgeable attorney that prides himself in helping people. His staff is very professional and helping. The assistant I had would always find a way to assist me with all my concerns and questions. I would recommend Mike to anyone.

Application for permanent resident status
My wife and I are very grateful for the very professional treatment of the whole office staff, most of all Ms. Lorena, as she was always very helpful and knowledgeable of what needed to know and do to complete this process, which was successful due to the help she always provided.

Amazing experience
Mr. Sethi is amazing. He was very patient and genuinely cared to help our case. He did a fantastic job at thoroughly explaining the entire immigration process to both me and my husband. His expertise and confidence until the end of our immigration process definitely helped us through it all. The entore legal team did an amazing job at updating us throughout and getting ahead of any situation we needed to take care of for the positive end result we needed. Would recommend Mr. Sethi’s representation to anyone looking for an immigration lawyer with a family-like touch. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!! :)

Residency process
We first consulted about my case and how hard/easy it would be, how long it’d take, and how much it’d cost. We filed for my residency through my spouse and in every step of the way, their was always someone who would answer any questions we had and even answer questions we wouldn’t have thought of. When it was time for the interview, I had to go to Guatemala and we were in constant communication. They knew exactly what we should do and told us before we even left what paperwork we had to get from Guatemala. Couldn’t have hired a better immigration attorney.

My experience with Attorney Mike Sethi law firm
Attorney Mike Sethi is a top-notch Attorney to go to when it comes to immigration matters (service area I hired him for). He is a good listener and a very courteous, caring, and understanding Attorney who is always willing and ready to go the extra mile for his clients. He took the time to explain to me the overall process with regard to my sister and her family immigrant visa filing. Attorney Mike Sethi was able to accommodate my very tight work schedule when it comes to scheduling time to meet with him. He is a very straight forward professional and tells you what and when to expect. Even though there is no guarantee for anything beyond his control, he worked very hard for us to deliver at 100%. Yes 100%! I am completely satisfied with his Attorney services and very grateful to his staff especially to Kelsey for the work they did. And since I had more frequent communication with Norwalk office, I would like to use this opportunity to say a very big thank you to one of his employees by the name Kelsey (not sure if I got the spelling correct). Kelsey is very caring, and a great listener with a very strong people skill. She provided us with outstanding services and went the extra mile for us. I also forgot to mention that Kelsey is very patient and genuinely cares... I have been in Norwalk office on different occasions and saw how she related to other clients as well as me. Kelsey is a great asset to Attorney Sethi Law firm and to have hired her as one of the employees of Sethi Law firm was probably one of the best decision this law firm has ever made. Attorney Mike Sethi is a very ethical and understanding Attorney who cares deeply for his clients and for that reason I highly recommend this Attorney and his law firm. He is an expert and very current when it comes to immigration matters. Pay whatever amount he tells you to pay for his services, and you would definitely not be disappointed. His services are worth more than what you would ever be asked to pay. Only a trial would convince you. So, if you are looking for an immigration Attorney who is dedicated, ethical, caring of his clients, honest, reliable, trustworthy, understanding and very current with immigration matters, Attorney Mike Sethi and his law firm more than fits the bill. You have my highest recommendation!!!

Superb Attorney and Staff! Highly Recommended!
I highly recommend Mr. Mike and his firm. He did an excellent job with my immigration process, there are no words to describe how grateful I am towards him and his staff. Previously to meeting Mr. Mike Sethi I was fearful of ever restarting my immigration process after so many bad experiences. Yet I can finally say that there are good attorneys, that truly care for their clients. Mr. Sethi shows high level of professionalism and honesty toward all the people who seek his help. I will always be thankful to attorney Mr. Mike Sethi and his team for helping my wife and me become permanent residents.

Immigration case
Mr. Sethi is by far the best lawyer I have ever come across. My case was impossible, other lawyers just heard my case and refused it right away, but Mr. Sethi not only took our case but he also got the impossible work done. Today my paper work is done for me and my family and we are on track now. I would recommend him to everyone because of his professionalism, honesty, and politeness.

Awesome Immigration Attorney
I had a great experience working with Mike Sethi on my niece's SIJS (Special Immigrant Juvenile Status) case. As I hear this type of case doesn't come across on daily basis and is considered few of the very complicated ones. But working with Mike it felt like the case was a rather simple one. From the get go, Mike was very helpful, open, honest and upfront with everything. He was right on the spot on time estimates and the steps involved. Easy to reach and a great person to talk to for all your immigration needs. When he didn't have an answer, he would dig it up for you with all required legal references. He would educate you so you feel comfortable that the decision we are taking is the right one. I would strongly recommend Mike for any and all of your immigration needs.

Very Satisfied
I'm very happy with Mike and his team, they were able to help my husband to get his resident, they talk to us with all the details of what was the process and what to do first, everything move fairly quick, even though my husband wasn't granted the resident at the moment of the appointment, they help us to get back to immigration with everything they asked for and within weeks after they received everything my husband was granted his resident, pretty soon will be time to re-new his resident, then apply for citizenship, we are definitely hiring Mike Sethi. I have sent friends and family and they all have been happy with the results, if you are in a need of a lawyer, definitely make an appointment at US Law Center, free consultation, Mike, keep up the good work, thanks again!

Finally a Good Immigration Attorney
I known Mike for about 4 years, We hired him for immigration case, he was very tedious on the process on what to do first, he is very knowledgeable and professional . The first time we met up with him, we felt a confidence right away, and he is always up to date with the latest laws. Any time we had questions about something he would be there to answer them, some times would take a little longer, but I think that is because all the clients that he has. I have sent friends and Family to see him and they have been very happy the way he works. I have another issue coming up and I'm definitely will be contacting US Law Center for this issue. If you are in a need of a Lawyer definitely make an appointment at with them, you wont be disappointed. Keep up the good work Mike!! :0)

After soo many bad experiences finally found an attorney we trust
We met with several attorneys before hiring Mike. Most attorneys gave us conflicting information. We took a leap of faith and hired Mike to help us with a petition for my husband, I'm a US citizen. Our case was complicated but Mike was very specific about the steps we needed to take before he could get his green card. Just as he promised my husband received his green card and we are soo happy! I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional and honest attorney. His staff is really nice too.

Very Satisfied!
I have Mike Sethi to help me with our green card. I'm very glad hiring Mike Sethi as our attorney. He gave me some legal advice, what we could and couldn't do. We followed his professional instructions and finally we got our green card in one year and half. It was so fast and very unexpected. We were very happy. What a dream come true! When we had questions, he had always answered them in timely manner. All his staff were very helpful and professional. I’m very satisfied with all his service. I definitely will recommend him to anyone!
