Very professional and trustworthy attorney!!
My wife and I are happy to have found Jennifer someone who is so kind, reliable, and professional. When we first went to her we didn’t really know the process to obtain residency. Jennifer was patient and helpful and explained everything thoroughly. She did ALL of the work and was on top of everything. She made sure we were prepared every step of the way. Jennifer would go to immigration conferences and was always informed with any changes in immigration laws. Whenever we had concerns about our case we would email her and she would get back to us promptly. Jennifer has great work ethic and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Without a doubt I recommend her to anyone who is looking for an immigration lawyer.

Great Lawyer!. Compassionate and trustworthy!.
I hired Mrs. Doerrie to help me with my immigration matter, and I'm glad I did. What differences her between other lawyers, is that she really cares about her clients. She works hard on your case, and never make promises that can't be accomplished. She keep me informed of every development in my case. She is a very professional, charismatic and compassionate person. "I will definitely recommend this lawyer to represent you with your immigration matters".

Knowledgeable and helpful immigration Lawyer
I was relieved and happy to have found Jennifer-I emailed her and she answered me promptly. Though every case is different she shed light on my concerns knowledgeably. She give me tangible immigration advise and give me exact scenarios and concrete output regarding my immigration issues. She's very helpful, considerate, caring Immigration Lawyer. Keep in mind that it is very important to ask an immigration lawyer on immigration problems and concerns.

One of the most trustworthy Immigration lawyers who has the best interest of client at heart.
Jennifer is an excellent immigration lawyer. She always kept me informed with any changes in immigration laws and how they might affect my situation. Jennifer is always involved with counsel meetings and can have a busy schedule. However, she is great at what she does and i would recommend her anytime.

By far the best Immigration Attorney one can ever meet.
Ms. Doerrie one of a kind, I have worked with many Immigration attorneys over a span of 19 years. I was referred to Ms. Doerrie and sure enough she did her best to help me. If you are looking for an excellent attorney and wonderful person to help you with your immigration matters, she is definitely your person. She is also a hard worker, she is understanding and compassionate. She will definitely do all she can to help you, and if for some reason she can't she will let you know and if possible advise you what to do next. My words don't do her justice, if you have an immigration matter please check her out. Until I met her I didn't believe that there were excellent, honest, caring immigration attorneys out there; I found those qualities in her. She rated excellent for me because she was and did all the things on the chart.

"I endorse this lawyer. She worked for C.S.S., the immigration public defender, before moving to California. She always had a desire to do better by all of her clients, and sometimes asked me for feedback on her cases as I was then known as one of the most aggressive defense lawyers in Atlanta, long before deportation defense became "big business." I am not at all surprised that she has become one of the most prominent immigration attorneys in her geographical area. I would hire her in a New York minute."
