Best Immigration Attorney
For past 5+ years, Maleeha provided consultation, guidance on my immigration case and worked with me to get to finish line. She is extremely courteous, dependable and most importantly very knowledgeable. Her attention to detail is astounding. I can’t thank enough to her and her entire team at Haq law. They are very dedicated group of individuals who are not just helpful but caring as well. I was always kept informed throughout the process and never had to wait more than few hours to get any of my questions answered. When you choose Haq law to represent you, I can assure you (from my experience) that you are in good hands. Thank you Maleeha and the entire Haq law team.

Amazing lawyer!
It was a blessing finding Maleeha for my immigration lawyer. I will always be thankful with Maleeha Haq, Gabriela and her team for such an amazing service. They got in contact with me immediately when there was any update on my case. Took long hours over the phone, speaking with me to find the best solution for me. Checked every detail of my case and paperwork. They have me hope when I was already loosing it. And there are so many positive thing I could write about. Today, I'm celebrating I got my case approved. Thank you so much again for your knowledge, honesty and great service.

Dacamented to legal resident!
As a former undocumented, DACAmented, and now permanent legal resident, thanks to Maleeha and her talented paralegals at Haq Law, I could not have asked for a better team! I am extremely grateful for Maleeha’s focus, experience and adaptability. We started this process pre-Covid and continued the process through the height of Covid up until now. Maleeha and her team supported me as I moved out of state and were always knowledgeable of the changing requirements. With all of the changes that arise each presidency and the many hoops the political system makes you go through - this is the legal team you want on your side! They helped me in exploring every possible option to find success in my legal journey and always had an action plan when we hit obstacles that were unique to my case; from daca renewals to advanced parole to advocating for me via video call during my official greencard interview in another state. I really want to thank Maleeha and Gabriela! Without you I would not have successfully been able to return to my home country after 24 years as well as become a legal resident of the United States. Thank you, I wish you and your team many more success! De ser alguien indocumentado por la mayor parte de mi vida (25 años), a lograr ser beneficiario de DACA, y ahora como residente legal permanente, gracias a Maleeha y sus talentosos asistentes legales de Haq Law, ¡no podría haber pedido un mejor equipo! Estoy extremadamente agradecido por el enfoque, la experiencia y la adaptabilidad de Maleeha. Comenzamos este proceso antes de Covid y continuamos el proceso durante el apogeo de Covid, hasta ahora. Maleeha y su equipo me apoyaron cuando me mudé fuera del estado y siempre estuvieron al tanto de los requisitos y sus cambios. Con todo los cambios que surgen cada presidencia y los muchos aros por los que el sistema político te hace pasar, ¡este es el equipo legal que quieres de tu lado! Me ayudaron a explorar todas las opciones posibles para encontrar el éxito en mi proceso legal y siempre tuvieron un plan de acción cuando nos encontramos con obstáculos que eran exclusivos a mi caso; desde renovaciones de DACA, hasta aplicar para Advance Parole (Documento de viaje), y abogar por mí a través de una videollamada durante mi entrevista oficial para mi tarjeta de residente permanente, en otro estado. ¡Le agradesco mucho a Maleeha y a Gabriela! Sin ustedes, no habría podido regresar con éxito a mi país de origen después de 24 años ni convertirme en residente legal de los Estados Unidos. ¡Gracias, le deseo mucho más éxito a Maleeha y a su equipo!

Amazing attorney!
Maleeha is been my immigration attorney for 3 years and throughout this journey she proved herself to be a very kind hearted, caring and an amazing attorney who always stands on my side along with her team whenever I am in need of. No matter what the number of clients she deals with, I personally notice she and her team keeps track of the future events and keeps me notified. She did a couple of applications for me, one of which is the change of status from H4 to F1-visa. Usually its a pretty straight forward procedure but mine was a challenging, but through her knowledge, dedication and hardwork she make the F1 approval possible for me, thank you Maleeha and team. They are responsive towards their duties, supportive towards their clients and runs the office in a very professional way. They were transparent with the fees structures, expectations in terms of application outcomes and most importantly files the application packet in a very timely manner. She is always keen towards providing the most appropriate solutions to her clients. I am very grateful to Maleeha and his team for all their efforts and support provided in my case, and would also like to recommend her to the people who are looking for a caring , kind and knowledgable Attorney.
