Strong advocate
Mercy helped us with my green card application after marriage. At our interview, we needed essentially instant approval and a speedy issue so we could go to the wedding reception my mother had organized in my home country. Mercy did an excellent job advocating for us to the unresponsive USCIS Officer and raised the issue with his supervisor. In summary, green card received and we're off to my country for a party with family and friends! Thank you so much, Mercy.

N-400 appliction
Highly efficient, prompt, patient and precise in preparing the client, took the burden off my shoulders.. What I liked was she reviewed my case thoroughly before making any assurances. She monitored the interaction between myself and the immigration officer in such a subtle manner that changed the outcome and that was amazing :-). I wish her the best of luck!

Helped me with my wife's green card
Not only is Mercy a great lawyer she is a great person! She helped my wife and I when we felt we were getting no where with our process. She first looked into my wifes background and saw she qualified for DACA and once she got her work permit, we continued with the green card process. What i liked about Mercy is that she didnt send anything out until she made sure everything was in order to send to the NVC. I feel the whole process went smoothly in Juarez mexico because Mercy had us prepared and organized. Thank you Mercy for everything!

Citizenship and my son Green Card
I hired Mercy to obtain my Citizenship and later also to process my son Green Card application. Mercy was very detailed oriented, answered all my emails and assured me that the whole process would run smoothly. I obtained my citizenship in 5 month and after that I my son got his Green Card in 6 month. It was not the cheapest but I was very pleased and happy with my experience, so I would recommend Mercy to anyone who requires legal advice and visa applications.

E2 Visa
My employer hired Mercy to process an E2 visa for myself. It took a couple of weeks to get my visa interview at the US embassy, the process was very smooth and I received all my documents in time. My application was approved and I got my E2 visa. I was very pleased and happy with my experience and would recommend Mercy to anyone who requires legal advice and visa applications.

GC process with Mercy
We hired Mercy to process Green Card for both my parents - they are born in India before 1950s and do not have formal birth certificates. Mercy helped us patiently with the process and recommended the right set of affidavits we should prepare. Our parents received their GC approval without interviews in 4 months time. Thanks to Mercy, it has been a really smooth process. Especially with the forms and documents we had to deal with. We were extremely pleased and happy with our experience and would recommend Mercy to our friends and family.

Reliable attorney, compassionate, great service
I have been working with the offices of Mercy Sequeira for over ten years. I first had contact with her offices when my employer filed my H-1 B visa on my behalf. at that time I lived outside the country. Mercy was very detailed oriented, answered all my emails and assured me that the whole process would run smoothly. I lived outside the country at the time my H-1B petition was filed. Mercy Sequeira was always available by email to answer all my questions and help myself and my family procure our H-1B visas to enter the United States. Over the years she represented me on my H-1B extensions and then for my green card, the whole green card process took several years as a result of the backlogs. I finally was able to file my adjustment of status. She represented my wife and children in their adjustment of status as well and thanks to her hard work, my whole family including myself became permanent residents. We eventually applied to become U.S, citizens and she represented us during the process. I can proudly say my whole family are U.S. citizens now thanks to her hard work. We couldn't be happier with her service and are grateful for her kindness and compassion during this very long and stressful process. We are all now proud U.S. Citizens and highly recommend her to others. She always gave us her time, put our minds at ease and was very reasonable with her fees.

Navigating and obtaining a Green Card for an elderly parent
Mercy Sequeira helped me navigate and expeditiously obtain a green card for my eldery father. She was extremely efficient with the process, which took all of 5 months. She managed our expectations well and kept us informed of all developments and requests. She knew exactly what forms to file, what supporting documents to provide and when to push the system. What could have resulted in a complete stand still of the application was overcome with alternative documentation. Mercy was able to think out of the box and her strategy worked. The end result was a green card within 5 months of filing the application. We are so grateful to her and would highly recommend her services to others seeking help.

I would pick Mercy every time without thinking about it
Mercy Sequeira was a crucial part of my amazing Odyssey after having being pre-selected on the Diversity Lottery Green Card. She made me feel safe and helped me through almost 1 year process since I received the letter that changed my life. Today, I could say happily that the process is over, soon I will receive my Green Card and I will have more opportunities in this country because of that. Furthermore, I can’t feel happier or grateful for having her as my lawyer. Mercy guided me professionally and all the deadlines were perfect. Also, she was with me at the important day of my Interview for the Status Adjustment and when I saw her with her attitude I knew that everything was perfect. For all this reasons and more, today I can say that if I needed to choose again somebody to help me in a legal process in the immigration field I would pick Mercy every time without even thinking about it, she was like an angel that helped me when I needed more. Thanks so much Mercy Sequeira for all your help.

GreenCard Application
Mercy was instrumental in getting my family based greencard application approved. She is very meticulous with all the paperwork involved in the process. She follows up in a timely manner and was very pleasant to work. I recommend her.
