Holly Pai is awesome!
Holly was referred to me by a family member, and she did not disappoint! She is very knowledgeable, and walked me through the entire green card application process. Holly was always available to answer any questions, and displayed professionalism and friendliness throughout. She provided me with a schedule and a calendar that included important dates and deadlines for my application. She even helped me prep for the green card interview, and provided an outline of what I needed to bring with me. I would definitely recommend Holly to anyone looking to hire an immigration attorney. She made the entire process worry-free!

Highly Recommend!
My husband & I hired Holly to help us through the Green Card Application process for my husband. She was extremely knowledgeable, patient, thorough and professional throughout the process. We appreciated her expertise, how she prepared us for the paperwork and the interview process and was consistently accessible for any questions that we had. She walked us through every scenario, prepared us for what to expect and ensured that we were informed at every step. I would highly recommend hiring Holly!

Professional, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful
Holly was an invaluable resource for my wife and I while going through the (tedious) process of getting my wife her green card. She walked us through all the forms we would need to fill out step by step, the amount of time to give each step, and plenty of tips to ensure everything went as smoothly and quickly as possible. She was also very responsive whenever we emailed or called her with any questions we had along the road (which was quite frequently). My wife got her green card with no hiccups along the way, and I have since recommended Holly to other friends in similar situations and will definitely continue to do so.
