My case saved!My case saved!
My father submitted a sponsorship application many years ago, but my application was rejected due to not responding to the Request For More Evidence letter from the Immigration Department for a long time and exceeding the allowed time limit. without our family knowing. I started looking for a lawyer to help me, and I saw Attorney Mark Fridman in the list of immigration lawyers from the website of the US Consulate in Ho Chi Minh City. Attorney Mark diligently guided step by step to find the reason why the notification letter was lost and request USCIS to reopen the file. It is wonderful that the Department of Immigration has approved the reopening of the file and Attorney Mark continues to assist me with the remainder of the file. Attorney Mark is a lawyer who is not only committed to our family, but through his work results, I know he also has a lot of experience and expertise in US immigration law. I highly recommend Attorney Mark and encourage everyone to hire Attorney Mark if they are having any difficulties while completing their application.

L-1 visa
I want to share my experience and work results when I prepared the L-1 application with lawyer Mark. I have worked with many lawyers, but when I met lawyer Mark and saw his way of working, I felt extremely lucky and knew that I'm in good hands. Mark gave detailed instructions on the documents and evidences that my company and I needed to gather. Although there were many challenges and difficulties along the process, the lawyer was always dedicated and never discouraged with my case. As a result, I successfully received my L-1 visa and am now working in the United States. Thank you cannot express the gratitude from the company and from me personally. I strongly recommend lawyer Mark for his great expertise and experience in L-1 and immigration matters in general.

Helpful consultation
Mark provided me with a consultation regarding my overstay situation in the U.S. The consultation was super helpful. All my questions answred and good advice to help me with my next steps. I could not find another lawyer in Vietnam to help me with this that knew what they were doing and the immigration service that helped me screwed my case up. Definitely talk to Mark!

We are thankful for blue slip approved
My father recevied a blue slip from the consulate in Ho Chi Minh City. He is innocent and unjustly accused. My family was depressed and lost after paying a immigration service that did nothing to help us but excuses. Lawyer Mark helped us and after so much despair my father was approved and we were given permission to immigrate. Lawyer Mark worked hard for us and without his committment I am sure we would have not been approved. Thank you and I recommend. And thank you to Ms. Hoang Anh for her compassion and hard work.

F1 student extension
My son had a very complicated student visa problem where he overstayed because of the COVID pandemic. Mr. Fridman represented us with USCIS and received the approval to change his status. Our first lawyer did not know how to fix the problem and referred us to Mr. Fridman who was very knowledgeable about how to handle our case.
