About Abby

Learn Abby’s areas of practice.

Practice area

I specialize in U.S. immigration law, working with individuals, families and employers on legal strategies for working and living in the United States.  My practice includes work visas, family-based immigration, permanent residence, and naturalization as a U.S. citizen.  I came to the practice of immigration law after working for several years in the area of commercial litigation.  I love the fact that immigration law is about people and helping people achieve their goals.  I believe strongly in the benefits immigrants bring to the U.S.  In this complex and shrinking world, having people from many countries visit, work and settle in the United States enriches us in multiple ways. I am proud to be able to contribute to this process.

Great lawyer
Abby was working with our family for many years. We always felt to be in very good hands with her. She is very knowledgeable and provides very fast legal advice. Very punctual and accurate. We just got our green cards with her . Abby went to interview appointment with us. Everything was smooth and with no stress.

She gave me and my kids opportunity to stay in United States
I was struggling with visa issues to stay in United States. Through my company, I approached to Abby and we had only 2 weeks to file the petition. I applied for H1 visa but premium processing was suspended at that time. Abby was godsend and she did everything in her capacity to make my case very strong and applied for expedited processing. She wrote a summary for my situation which truly reflected what i was going through. I was already packing my bags to go back to my home country with no hopes for my visa to get through so quickly. To my shock, my visa was approved in just 20 days as opposed to 6-8 months of processing time which is listed on the website. It was truly a miracle and I am eternally grateful to Abby for making this possible. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling with immigration issues in States.

Outstanding Service
Abby provided outstanding service during our immigration efforts. Her communication, professionalism and knowledge was extremely reassuring during a very emotionally stressful journey.

Successful permit application
I would absolutely recommend Abby to anyone who is in need of a effective, professional, knowledgeable attorney. Even after the first telephone conversation with Abby I knew that I would be in good hands. I had previously engaged another attorney and I learned more from Abby in our first conversation than I did at all from the other attorney. Abby kept me informed throughout the process and made everything seamless for myself and my employer. The knowledge she shared with me helped us move forward with my permit and gave me clear information about options for now and even later on down the road. My employer also commented on how helpful and efficient Abby was as we went through the process. And her sense of urgency matched mine - which I appreciated! Abby took care of the business side of things effectively while appreciating and understanding the human side as well .

Review of Abby Loomis
Abby Loomis helped me to obtain my green card. My case was very complicated, and no other laywer could relate to the situation so nobly, as Abby did. She always informed me of relevant developments in my case, she was approachable, and could always provide a profound answer and solution. Her broad knowledge of the law, allowed me to received my green card.
