Lina My Angel
You can simply turn into a number when you find an immigration law attorney to represent you! However, choosing Lina Baroudi, you will be represented as friend in need of help! Lina wasn't just a passionate law abiding attorney and a pillar of knowledge representing my wife and I, she was also, and I know she can always be there for me as my Angel. (something I told her several times) Lina is an incredible human being, with an extraordinary perception to others emotions and sentiments. Words are limited to describe how much I appreciate Lina The review above may appear in the form of an advertisement. It is NOT! It is indeed my profound personal view about Lina

The best
I would like to thank Lina for the effort she put into my complicated case. I have worked with several attorneys and I was lucky that I found her name while I was searching in google as she did not have a Yelp account at the time... In my opinion Lina is one of the best lawyers in the area and the most Honesty and follow-up of files, her prices are very reasonable and within everyone’s reach, she is very smart and experienced in the way she analyzes any case and the way she asks questions that give you the feeling that you are in a real interview with an immigration officer. If your case is difficult, I advise you to work with Lina, or at least take her opinion, and then I I'm sure you will hire her and she won't let you down

Incredible immigration attorney
We hired Lina for a very complex case involving consular processing in Brazil, waivers of inadmissibility, deportation proceedings with immigration court, advance parole, and DACA. She worked tirelessly to achieve success in every aspect of our case. The documents that Lina prepared were always impeccable and she communicates quickly. Lina is truly dedicated to her clients and she is always looking into new and alternative legal avenues to resolve cases. She is also very honest about the chances of success, timelines, and financial burden of each part of the process. Lina's pricing is very fair and she was able to set up a payment plan for us so that we could start immediately. She was also very understanding of the emotional burden of the immigration process and was able to provide support in that area. We always felt secure in the knowledge that Lina would know what to do in any situation that could arise. We would not hesitate to recommend Lina for any aspect of immigration law.

Great asylum attorney
Lina is extremely knowledgeable in immigration law! She took her time with our case and provided the very best counsel! If you want a lawyer who invests her best time and effort in your case, Lina is the best. Our journey with Lina started with a consultation. She described our case very well and what needs to be done after chatting with her for 30 min. We transferred our case from another attorney to her and she made incredible progress in our case within a short time. She helped us with the asylum case and we got our asylum status!. I cannot describe how much time and effort she put into our documentation and our story. She also helped with our EAD application while waiting for an asylum interview. It was great to have her during the asylum interview and initial work for the interview made our interview easier and we were able to win our case. I found her through her previous reviews and I would like to encourage you to work with her as well.

Lina has all the qualities you'd want in an attorney
My husband and I hired Lina to help us with filing the I-130 petition, application for the immigration visa, green card and social security card, and she was worth every penny. Lina has got all the qualities you'd want in an attorney: knowledgable, experienced, thorough, fair, honest, patient, dependable and always professional. We feel so grateful for all of her expert guidance and hard work on our behalf. Even if our case was a straightforward one, if we had to do it all over, we'd definitely hire Lina again just for the peace of mind and confidence that she provides throughout such a long and uncertain process.
