Immigrant/ Registered Nurse
Ruby is a great attorney and I’m always sending referrals to their office. 22yrs later and anyone I’ve ever sent to their office has good results.

The Best Decision off my Life
My lawyer changed my life. I obtained political asylum based on my sexual orientation. Then I became a permanent resident of the United States. Recently I passed my interview to became a citizen. This happened thanks to the support, hard work and professionalism of my amazing lawyer.

Immigration/Citizenship
I had a great experience with Ruby. She very knowledgeable and experienced. I had a bad experience with the previous attorney until the case went to immigration proceedings. My citizenship application was pending for two years until it got rejected. Ruby helped us through filing in the district court as well as fighting the case in immigration court. Finally we won the case in immigration count for residency and went back to district court for citizenship. I just got my citizenship approved a month ago and everything went well. Ruby fought for us every step of the way. Her fees were very reasonable and she was able to provide a reasonable payment plan within affordability. Now we have requested to have the legal expenses reimbursed which is even better. I had a great experience and will definitely recommend her. Thanks for your efforts Ruby.

Professional, responsible and highly recommended!
Ruby is my savior during an unexpected trouble that shook me completely. Her knowledgeable explanation of each step in handling the case, the scenarios and possible outcomes were really helpful for a person who knew nothing about consequences in immigration law for careless mistakes. Ruby has tremendous experience in immigration law along with impressive communication skills and the attitude to help clients. Her explanation on immigration consequences for offenses were very detailed, powerful and helped me get relieved off the case. More importantly, she really cares about her clients. She responds to emails, messages and calls promptly and professionally. Beyond her profession, she is a good person. She is a go-to attorney who will do her very best to take care of her clients. People tend to get in trouble due to carelessness and absentmindedness at times -Ruby is someone who will completely analyse the situation, provide a realistic answer for all questions, trust the client's situation and help accordingly. She is very intelligent, affordable and zealous. She had thoroughly helped me since the first day I met her until I was relieved off the case. She is the best immigration attorney I have known.! Ruby is a valuable person who can make positive differences in others lives beyond her profession.

Combination of 100% Precision, 100% Expertise, 100% of everything
How would describe an excellent attorney? My answer is clearly Ruby Lieberman. She supported me over 5 years to get back my Permanent residency Card (Green Card). This was only possible, thanks to her excellent and precise preparation. If she is your attorney, you are not just a case, you are the case! She takes time, she contacts you and she reviews your case every time, even if takes more than 5 years. Extremely knowledgeable smart with a great personality. I am honored to have the chance meeting her and I consider her not just as attorney or lawyer but also as a great person and my friend. Words cannot describe what a great character and excellent lawyer she is. Thanks Ruby

Dear Ruby, I will always be under you debt...
Ruby Esther Lieberman is one of the best immigration lawyer. I had another lawyer who supposed to help out to get visas for my wife and two kids who were living in Afghanistan, after five years of waiting she was unable to get the job done. A friend of mine introduced Ruby, she was very nice and supportive, she told me that she will fight for my family. It took her only Seven months to get visas for my wife and kids. My family's case was very complicated, but Ruby had a solution for every excuse of the USCIS and the US embassy in Afghanistan. I strongly, recommend Mrs Lieberman because she is the type of lawyer that will fight hard for your case. Mrs. Lieberman, you are the best lawyer I have ever worked with. Appreciate all your hard works... I owe the safety of my family to you because you did everything to get my wife and kids to safety.

excellent attorney, wonderful human being.
hiring ruby was the best decision me and my husband made to file for my green card application that had been previously denied by USCIS. We had hired another attorney who was too busy taking more cases than he could handle, and as a result my application was denied as we were not well informed by him. My sister found her online, read her profile, and recommended her to us. She may seem gentle and naïve, but she is a very good attorney who can be firm when needed. I like that every time we were in her office for an appointment, she would always give us the full attention, answer our every question and always made sure we understood the process. She corrected all the wrongs in our previous application, gave us right information, and helped us get my green card. I now have my temp green card, and we are waiting to file for the permanent. We are for sure going to hire her again because we trust ruby , and know that she is a great attorney who really cares about her client. we will always be great full to her work and dedication. we highly recommend ruby lieberman.

Excellent Service
Attorney Ruby Lieberman was a great asset in helping us obtain a Green Card for my sister-in-law in a very difficult case. She helped us understand our rights, clarified complex details of the case, and successfully walked us through the whole process. We really appreciate her excellent work and are pleased to give her our highest recommendation.

In Lieberman I trust!
Ms Lieberman handled my asylum case in the late 90's. I no longer recall how I found her but I'm still grateful today that I did. When I first met her, I was mentally destitute after living in my legal predicament for several years since I came to the US. Her genuine kindness and soft demeanors put me immediately at ease. Each meeting with her felt like spending time with a friend. Calling her trustworthy and knowledgeable in the matters of immigration laws would be stating the obvious. She handled what seemed to me an insurmountable legal problem with such grace and ease as if it was her second nature. I had complete trust in her and followed her through every task and challenge all the to the final interview. At the end, my case was granted. Today, I'm a proud US citizen all because of Ms Lieberman! For that I'll be forever grateful.
