We contacted Attorney Ballout for an adjustment of status petition.
We had done a good deal of research on our own, but we felt like too many questions remained. So, we decided to use the services of Attorney Ballout. Attorney Ballout has proved very knowledgeable about every aspect of our application. In particular, he offered advice that we would not have found online or in books because we did not even know to look for it.
Before mailing the application, Attorney Ballout took the time to personally review the documents and kept in touch with us after his working hours to make sure the application was complete. We were also impressed with how experienced he was with the interview process and the application delays.
But, what seems to stand out the most in our dealings with Attorney Ballout is the patience he showed in listening to us. He seemed to always genuinely care in the outcome of our application.
All in all, we cannot imagine applying for adjustment of status without the help of a qualified attorney. Applications with the USCIS can be scary, and Attorney Ballout offers the knowledge and care to make them successful.

I highly recommend Haitham. I am a paralegal with 20 years experience and felt confident that I could handle my daughter-in -law's immigration work by myself. However, on the recommendation of a friend who used Haitham, I decided to talk with him. Based on our interview, I decided to hire him. It was a wise decision and money well spent. We avoided a couple of potential pitfalls that I am not sure I would have caught or avoided on my own. Haitham was very responsive to questions and instilled a sense of confidence and freedom from stress and worry, making the process painless. The results were great, as hoped, so bottom line-- it was well worth his fee. I highly recommend Haitham for imigration work, and if he knows his other fields as well, I would recommend him in general.

My husband was already in Deportation proceedings when we hired Mr Ballout. He helped us with a hardship waiver, terminating court proceedings and obtaining permanent resident status. All the while he showed compassion and respect. One more thing, we live I Florida and he had no problem flying out here to help us out

My family & I were more than happy with his services, we used his services in 2 different occassions & in both he went above & beyond to get us what we need it. I would say that aside from a great lawyer, he is an excellent person.

A+++ Lawyer. Highly recomended! I have seen 3 different Lawyers before Mr. Ballout, and they all told me I can't win my case. Just as seem as all hope has ran out, Mr. Ballout worked miracles for me! He had helped me go through a very complicated immigration case. Thanks to Mr. Ballout & his professional staff, I got my Green Card back & able to stay with my wife & daughter.
Mr. Ballout is amazing! Again, thank you very much for all your hard work.
