Friendly and personal service
If I could rate Lina Shayo 100 Stars I would. She is very professional, empathic, and has a very good listening ear. My husband's case was complex but she believed it could be done and she did it. We are very grateful for her help. I see Lina not only as my lawyer but as a friend and confidant.

Highly recommend Lina, grateful for her help
Lina’s depth of expertise in immigration law helped me and my spouse navigate through the green card application process. Lina’s willingness to connect with us frequently and answer all of our questions helped us stay calm during times of uncertainty, considering the extra challenges and complications brought on by the global pandemic. Lina also helped ensure we were thoroughly prepared for every step in the process. We could not be more grateful that we were able to work with Lina through what ultimately became a successful green card application process.

A Brilliant Choice
Absolutely money well spent. We could always count on Lina's expert guidance each step of the way, for as long as it took to get my husband's visa approval. She certainly will be helping us also with my husband's citizenship application when the time comes. You're in good hands with Lina!

Professional and affordable
5 stars for Lina. She is very professional and always available to answer any questions. It’s a rough process so you need someone you can rely on to represent you. We had been through a couple lawyers that just wanted to do the bare minimum, until we found Lina. Very pleased and would recommend to everyone! Thank you!

Helped save my case!
We needed a Laywer to help with the progress our case. We saw her successfully helping a married couple and we decided to find her on the internet and ask for her help us. We also contacted many other attorneys in the area, but we always reflected on the way we saw Lina with the family at the immigration office. Lina is very professional and pleasant to work with. She is very confident and loves her job. Now we are very thankful to Lina and highly recommend her to everyone.

Lina the best immigration attorney ever!!!
I had to change my expired F1 status to permanent resident through marriage. Me and my wife were blessed to come in contact with Lina! Lina was very friendly, jovial and professional, she knew her onions. She Assisted with filling and provided answers to every possible question we had before consulting her. On our interview day she prepared us mentally and emotionally Thanks to prep, the interview went smoothly than we could have ever imagine. More like a chat session than what I had earlier envisaged which was great! Slightly over one month after my interview, I got a mail with my green card! I'll recommend Lina a million times over and She's very timely with reverts. Thanks Lina you are the best!!!

A person to rely on
I was lucky to meet Lina. Lina is my attorney for an asylum case. She puts all her efforts and effective advocacy in getting me a success. Additionally, Lina is extremely responsive and goes above and beyond to achieve the purpose of the application. Finally, she is honest and tells the weak points of the case, so that I know what to expect and what to be cautious with. I totally recommend her to everyone.

British Residency to the U.S
Lina stepped in at the 11th hour after another lawyer from a different firm sat on my application for 6 months and did nothing. I saw Lina via a Google search & read positive reviews, something I wish I'd done with the previous lawyer, he didn't have 1 positive review ! To say I was cautious after my last experience would be an understatement. Lina showed thorough professionalism from the outset, she put both my wife and I at ease and guided us expediently through the whole process. I was especially pleased with her unrelenting help, guidance and pragmatic diligence in representing my application. My residency / green card was granted with no hesitation and in a relatively short time too. I believe that all to be a reflection of Linas professionalism. I can recommend her services without hesitation and can assure you that your application will receive the due care and diligence it deserves. Thank you Lina, regards, James & Gina

Naturalization Success
Lina really helped me out after I filed for naturalization by myself and it was rejected and returned to me. I was worried that I wasnt going to get my citizenship because of mistakes I had made on my original application. When I went to her office she immediately started reviewing my application and why it was denied. Within the hour we had figured out a solution and she told me exactly how to handle the situation with her direction. She assured me that she would go through the process with me and would be available whenever I needed her. This made me confident that she would make sure that everything would work out. When she filed the papers for me, the application got approved and I had a date for the interview. I didn't want to make any mistakes again so I talked to her about how I was going to handle the interview. Again she gave me great advice and today I am a citizen! I can't thank her enough for everything that she did. It made me less nervous knowing that I had hired someone who knows what they are doing and I have even recommended my friends to her. Thank you God bless.

THE BEST!!!!!!
When we met Lina in her office we did not know quite what to expect, she was very personable and explained the paperwork and the process that we would be going through completely, Lina stayed on top of our case and kept us informed at all times. She is a true proffessional and someone we trusted and she did not let us down from the start to finish. We would recomend her to anyone who that is needing a honest and very very compitent attorney. She was truly the best!

PERFECT SERVICE(Adjustment of Status through marriage)
Shortly after our wedding, my wife and I were lucky to have Lina Shayo as our lawyer to file for my wife’s change of status. It was a wonderful experience right from when the processing started till the end due to Lina Shayo’s perfect knowledge of the Subject matter (Immigration cases). Her dedication and good customer service skill were contributing factors to the success of the case. She was so informative and was able to guide ,monitor, assist and counsel us through each phase of the case, with the paper work and finally going in for the interview, which was a success. All thanks to The Almighty God and Lina’s support, today my wife have her Permanent Green Card(conditional) all within a year of case filling. Lina is indeed a good lawyer. She’s more like a family friend than a lawyer, because she will try to take away your fear and give you courage to sail through. Lina Shayo gave us an excellent service at reasonable price, we therefore highly recommend her as a perfect lawyer for any type of immigration case . She is indeed an expert in the field, we love and appreciate her.
