I was referred to mr surowitz by another attorney.
I called him regarding my citizenship interview and a pending court case.
He gave me very good advice on the phone various times free of charge.

We were referred to Josh Surowitz by a friend who had also used his firm to do their green card application through marriage. They had said great things about him and they were definitely right about everything they said. He really was a great immigration lawyer to work with. At the first consultation, he explained the entire process so clearly that we could not even think of any questions he did not address! Everything went exactly how he said it would, and what could have been a little bit of a scary and confusing process turned out to be very easy and straight forward because of all of their help and guidance. He said that he and his staff would guide us throughout every step of the application process, and that is just what they did. We felt very confident and well prepared by the time we went to our green card interview. And they were all VERY nice and helpful the entire time! They always made us feel welcome to call as much as we wanted and never made us feel they did not have time for us. My husband (who got his green card) and I thank their entire team for everything!

I admire Joshua's moral fiber and legal expertise. I have called on him on several occasions throughout the years whenever I faced an unfamiliar ethical or legal issue . More than once I was relieved by his 2nd opinion. If you want a trustworthy competent lawyer, Josh is your man.
