Adjustment of Status
My husband and I have had a great experience working with Jeff during my Green Card application process. Jeff is very professional and knowledgeable in what he does. He was always able to answer any questions we had, and made the whole process as easy as possible. I would definitely recommend Jeff to anyone looking for an immigration attorney!

Great experience
It was great working with Jeff Law. They always responded to our emails. The best part is that you get to pay the money in two installments. First payment when you hire them and the last payment on the date of your interview which means you will not be left in the dark to figure things out by yourself. Thank you Jeff law. Definitely recommend

Green card app process
We hired Jeff to help us apply for Green card through marriage. With conditional GC first, then remove condition. Jeff is very thorough in the preparation process. We did not even get an interview for I751, because (i assume) the docs submitted were comprehensive. I will hire Jeff to work on other immigration app in a heartbeat.

Thank you Jeff and team!
Jeff and his team are beyond amazing at helping my husband and I get our green card process started and completed. When we started with him in Seattle, his team was very responsive in emails and made sure that we had all of the documents needed for them to submit the application. All we had to do answer a questionnaire and they did the rest! Their team was so supportive during the whole pandemic and delay of the green card process. We never felt like we were alone in this, and they were there every step of the way. I can’t recommend Jeff and his team enough for anyone who needs to go through this! Thank you Jeff!

Thorough and experienced; great outcomes for family GC.
Jeff is a knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and empathetic lawyer. We have taken his help for naturalization and residency applications with amazing outcomes. The firm works hard for you in meeting your timelines. Upfront and honest about expectations and experienced enough to meet them on time consistently. Highly recommend!

Best Lawyer ever!
I would highly recommend Jeffrey Goldman and his team. Due to a unique situation, my case took longer but Jeff was extremely patient with us and NEVER EVER felt rushed when going to see him at his office.He listens which made me feel very comfortable. He truly cares and responds to your needs in the best ways possible. His advice and direction was incredibly useful and thanks to him we are now on the other side of the boat :-) There's no better lawyer I could possibly have!!

Highly recommended
Jeffrey and his team helped me with the removal of my conditional status on my green card. The whole process was very organized, communicative, and I felt taken care of personally (not just yet another case). If you need immigration help, I highly recommend Jeffrey and his team.

The Best Immigration Attorney
Jeff is a very good attorney and helped my wife get her permanent residence. Another crucial part of the team is his paralegal Margarita. As a team they work hand in hand together and do an excellent job keeping you informed as the very scary process unfolds. Having him as an attorney was well worth the money as he has a lot of knowledge and experience under his belt. If you need an immigration attorney Jeff is definitely a great choice and I recommend him and his team!

The Best Immigeation Attorney i know.
Firstly, my wife and I would like to immensely thank the Law office of Jeffrey Goldman. We are really grateful for all of the professional advise and help in making sure that my transition from the United Kingdom to the United states was hitch free. From Visiting from the UK to the states, to becoming a permanent resident in the US was all handled by the Law office of Jeffrey Goldman. Let me quickly talk about the team. Jeffrey is the most professional attorney that I know and his assistant named Margarita is the most calculated, responsible, kind and hands-on assistant anyone could ever have on a team. Before I forget, please let me advise that if you have an ulterior motive or trying to cheat the US system, Jeffrey is certainly not your type of guy so please do not waste your time. Jeffrey gave the best advices and his team took on my case and I didn't really have to do much. These guys took care of my application and I really felt at peace throughout the process knowing that I was in the best hands even from the very first consultation. Margarita would follow up with your case like you are her family member. my wife and I really liked that she was very professional and she would send us reminders and also chase us to do things right on time. On the 4th of February, 2020, Jeffrey attended my permanent resident interview together with my family and the application was granted. I doubt if any other Law outfit would treat their clients in a special manner like the Law office of Jeffrey Goldman.

Lawyer with a BIG Heart!
My immigration issue was handled by the previous law office. Although it had a positive outcome, I had a very unpleasant customer service experiences with them. That is why, I decided not to re-hire them for my citizenship application. My previous lawyer made me feel guilty and blamed me for everything and would not listen to my concerns. Their office will call me about 5 days prior to the due date of my monthly payment to ask that they have not received my check yet. It felt like I was being harassed every time they call. When I decided to look for a different immigration lawyer to help me with my citizenship application, I found Atty Jeff Golman by looking at AVVO website. During my first office visit, I could tell that I finally found a great lawyer. It was a breath of fresh air. Atty Jeff explained to me in detail how he's going to address my case. He listened to my concerns attentively and never felt I was judged by him. He is very knowledgeable. He was way different when it comes to demeanor as a lawyer. He is a lawyer that values human dignity. I called him "The Lawyer with a BIG Heart". If you are looking for a great immigration lawyer that will also reasonably charge you, go to Atty Jeff Goldman. His whole team will treat you well with respect and not just "a client". Their sense of professionalism is superb and was way beyond my expectations. Thank you Atty Jeff, Margarita (paralegal), and the rest of your team for helping me become a US citizen. If you're looking for an excellent lawyer with an excellent team, I highly recommend Atty. Jeffrey Goldman.

I Strongly Recommend Mr. Goldman!
I went down to Oregon for my citizenship interview and I was very fortunate to attend the ceremony on the same day as well. I had some prior convictions that made my case very tough and I did not know if I was even able to apply for citizenship. During my first visit, Mr. Goldman reviewed my situation and advised me that everything should be fine. I was able to walk away from the first visit feeling very positive! This does not end here, Margarita (paralegal) from the office was very diligent in notifying me and getting everything ready for my citizenship. I feel truly blessed that Mr. Goldman was my lawyer and I truly believe that he is a honest lawyer that can help you. I am leaving this review so that more people, similar to my case, can be helped in the future. Thank you so much Mr. Goldman and Margarita.

Changes of Status I-485 Application
Jeff and Margarita were fantastic!! They provide my wife and I with very specific guidance through out the entire Change of Status process. The responded to all of our emails or phone calls in a very timely manner - I never had to wait to get any and all of our questions answered. They prepared all of our documents and gave us recommendations for additional information that helped our packages get approved. Jeff prepared us for our final interview and attended the interview with us. I would say we were over prepared and that's a good thing! I would highly recommend Jeff and his staff for any immigration issue.

Responsive and thorough through the whole process
I hired Jeff to work on my I-751 application with a waiver. Jeff was very helpful and knowledgeable and communicated what the process was like and USCIS guidelines for my particular conditions. It is a slightly nerve wracking process, so I really appreciated the diligence. Everything ended up working out very smoothly.
