Very reliable immigration laywer
Amy has helped me over the last two years for H1B transfer, EAD/AP and AOS applications, and it was a very pleasant experience. Amy has been very supportive and helpful along the way, helping me with preparing paperwork, preparing for interviews, and being very patient with all my questions. I consider myself being lucky to work with her for my immigration cases.

Awesome Immigration Lawyer
Amy helped my husband get his adjustment of status and green card in less than a year. My husband and I would recommend Amy to anyone dealing with immigration issues. Amy made the process very pleasant and easy to follow. She guided us through the whole process of the application and took care of everything until the end. All we had to do was to follow her instructions and advices. We are very glad to have Amy help us with our case.

Trustful lawyer
I have been working with Amy for last few years for my green card process. She started the project with very much comprehensive explanation on the process, risks and opportunities. During the process, she has provided not only excellent high level support on my case but also tried to enagage in the personal details. Whenever I made some urgent inquiries she has been very responsive so that there would be minimal delays in making progress. I strongly recommend her as your immigration attorney.

Visa Application/Renewal
Amy Royalty has assisted my employer/myself with my visa applications/renewals over the past four years while I have worked in the United States. Amy has always been very professional, courteous, responsive and thoughtful throughout the time we have worked together. Amy and her team definitely 'go the extra mile' to ensure that there are no unexpected surprises through the application/renewal process. I have observed this on a few different occasions now and I am extremely grateful for their consideration. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Amy and I highly recommend her.

Review of Amy Royalty
My wife and I brought a case to Amy's firm and she was assigned to our case Amy is a specialist on immigration issues and our case was potentially very complicated. At all times, Amy was professional and caring. She never made promises she could not keep. She gave realistic and sober assessments of the hurdles we might face and what to expect. She was on target in terms of quoting and sticking to the costs to handle the case. Amy returned all calls and addressed all concerns immediately. She not only demonstrated and gave confidence in her legal abilities, but always manifested a concern for us as human beings as well as as clients. I must admit that not all my experiences with attorneys have been pleasant, but it Amy's case, she is an excellent example of what integrity and professionalism are all about as well as proof that lawyer jokes paint with too broad a brush and can be grossly unfair. We highly recommend Amy Royalty to anyone with immigration issues which is her chosen field of specialization out of passion for the issues and what she may be able to do for others in that area with her special interests and skills.
