This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Highly recommend
Deanna's initial advice to me regarding a denied citizenship application was crystal clear and meticulously explained in an unhurried manner. And this was before I even decided to hire her. Well over a decade after moving to the United States -- after many visas and many immigration attorneys -- Deanna really stands out as a rare professional in her field. She is extremely well informed, generous and very responsive. I highly recommend her.

Visa consulting
My Australian fiancé got a job in the US but we weren't sure how to get a working visa. We had so many questions and Deanna was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend her, she is a true professional.
