Brent walked us through the process of applying for our Green Card, creating a detailed list of items to be included and collected over time, as well as an efficient timeline for our accountability. We met with him only at a few key points in the process, to review our paperwork and prepare for the next step. He was patient and knowledgeable as we asked questions, and he eased our minds of any worries. Brent and his office took care of all the detailed filing of our application, and we didn't have to directly interface with the Immigration Department until the date of our interview.
He prepared us with sample questions we might be asked during our interview, and walked us through how the majority of scenarios go, so that we would be calm and relaxed, and able to be our authentic selves during the interview. Brent accompanied us and supported us through the entire interview process, mainly observing and ready to act on our behalf if need be. We had a great interview experience, and were approved on the spot.
We owe a huge thanks to Brent for his professionalism. His fees were very reasonable and absolutely worth every penny. It was a pleasure to work with him, and we highly recommend him.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Brent is a highly competent, well-respected, and devoted advocate. I had the privilege of working with him, in the Courts and before Congress, as part of the herculean effort to end the "widow penalty." This punitive application of our immigration law had persisted for decades, and no one was more instrumental than Brent in ending it. Throughout this ordeal, and in many subsequent matters, I have witnessed firsthand how dedicated Brent is to his work and his clients. I could not recommend him highly enough.
