I had a great and successful experience working with Bryan on my O1B ( the "artist") visa. He has a great understanding of the creative world which helped me a lot in getting through this very complicated and complex process that the O1 visa entails. Bryan is a fine man, knowledgable, patient and supportive. He was a great coach getting me through the intensive research and work that I needed to deliver. I highly recommend Bryan as an exceptional attorney for immigration law and I will continue to work with him in the future.

Bryan is a kind and compassionate human being. He has achieved mastery in the field of Immigration Law, and uses it to help his clients.
His knowledge in providing me expert advise on my case has been invaluable.After knowing him for three years, I can honestly say that I would highly recommend him to represent cases with expertise and sensitivity that it requires.

My first impression of Bryan McGowan during our first consultation for my wife’s unique adjustment of status case that he was very welcoming, knowledgeable and understanding, he walked us through the whole process in a caring and respectful manner and his fees were fair, so I hired him on the spot. Bryan’s behavior was exceptional, he was highly professional, honest, with great conduct and integrity, and his communications (email/call) were in a timely manner. Bryan well prepared and organized all of our paperwork for USCIS from submission to interview day as well as preparing my wife and I for GC interview. The whole process went so smooth it took less than 3 months from submission to GC approval… Honestly, It really was fun and a pleasure working with Bryan. I most definitely RECOMMEND him for all of your Immigration affairs!!
