Constante ayuda
Cuando somos de otro país diferente a este tenemos muchos miedos de ser deportados o de que nuestro caso sea negado. Mi proceso inició en 2019 pero por la pandemia de 2020 todo fue retrasado lento y con muchos obstáculos pero siempre tuvimos la asesoría de la doctora, una respuesta clara y brindando tranquilidad.. en algunas ocasiones parecía que las cosas no estaban de nuestro lado pero ella siempre lograba tener una maravillosa idea para dar un nuevo rumbo al proceso.. gracias MIL GRACIAS porque detrás de la felicidad de tener por fin la tarjeta verde está la felicidad de mi familia, la felicidad de quienes nos rodean y el futuro que nos espera a cada uno de los que confiamos en usted.... mil bendiciones y no tengan miedo de recibir una asesoría no tengan miedo de hablar con la verdad. Que precisamente ella está para ayudarnos y darnos una guia.. mil gracias doctora por ayudarme a abrir mis alas.. un abrazo.

Marriage During COVID
I was forced by the COVID outbreak to stay in the United States, and decided to marry the person I had come here to see in the first place, my husband. Sadly, I had overstayed my ESTA and was in a bit of a tight spot. Lara guided me throughout the entire process and made sure I was aware of deadlines, as well as reassured me over any worries I had. We had the option to opt for a payment plan, and we were made aware of any extra expenses that were involved. She got our case completed in 8 months in total and I am now a happy holder of a marriage based green card. We are thankful and forever happy to be together, thank you again for your help!

Great Lawyer!
From the very beginning of our immigration process, Mrs. Nations ensured that we kept to important timelines and made sure we knew what to expect. She was very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend Laura and her firm for any and all immigration services. Thank you Laura for helping us with our U.S. residency!

Caring, knowledgeable, and profesional
Lara was a pleasure to work with. She is patient and willing to explain every step of the process of my husband’s case to become a US resident. She always made time to speak to us when we had questions. Another thing we are thankful for is that she allowed us to set up a payment plan. Very knowledgeable and professional. Paperwork was always submitted in a timely manner. She kept our minds at ease throughout this process. Thanks to her my husband is now a green card holder. I feel so blessed that to have found her take my husband’s case. She kept our family together. I feel like she truly cared about us as people. I would definitely recommend her to our friends and family. Look forward to working with her again in the future when my husband become eligible to apply for US citizenship.

Got my green card in 2 and a half months. Thankful!!
All these immigration process was very stressful for me and my husband. After I hired Lara, all my stress and confusion was taken away. I am beyond grateful for all the work she did for us. With the help of Lara, I was able to get my green card in 2 months and a half. I can’t believe how fast this process went and I am very happy with the results. I really like that she knew the immigration process very well and if I had any questions or concerns, she always knew the answer or what to do next. When I needed to speak to her, she always got back to me the same day or as soon as possible. Lara made all this immigration process very easy to understand. She is a well prepared, professional, honest and respectful lawyer that knows how to do her job. I can’t thank her enough for all the help she provided us. You can really tell she cares about her clients and does her best to make everything work. I am really happy I hired her as my lawyer. I couldn’t have done all this without her. I would 100% recommend Lara to anyone that is looking for immigration assistance. She is the best Lawyer!

Immigration success
My husband and I were so stressed and worried about the immigration process. Lara Nations was just what we needed - a calm, competent attorney with experience. She knew the system so well - the one bump we had along the way was readily dispatched. Our interview went smoothly and I can thank Lara for that. I will recommend Nations Law Group to anyone who needs immigration assistance.
