Marie was incredibly helpful and provided high quality service for my I-130 immigration petition to sponsor my wife from Thailand. She was clear and concise with her directions, and paid close attention any potential issues to be fixed in important document details. I consider myself lucky that she was in my corner for and am grateful for her service. -AF
Marie was very helpful, after hearing my situation she offered a few options then did some research to strengthen our approach to the matter. She kept me informed through out and I'm very pleased the way things turned out. I would not hesitate to hire Marie again in the future for litigation related needs.
I loaned my 'friend' some money, and months went by without seeing a dime back from him. Flake. He promised to pay me back and I had texts and emails to prove it. He didn't pay me back. Contacted these guys and I had some of my money back in less than 3 weeks, with an installment plan in place. Couldn't be happier.
I have been fortunate to find a lawyer who was compassionate and helped me through my immigration process. While I was overwhelmed at first, working with Marie made it less stressful as she helped me through each stage of the process. I would highly recommend her, and I continue to rely on her support for my business legal needs.
When you're not in the legal industry, there's a lot that you don't understand.
Marie was absolutely amazing in answering all of our questions and providing valuable insight when we were at a total loss on how to handle a business arrangement that had been verbal from the beginning. Marie helped us create an agreement that ensured all parties felt secured.
I look forward to working with her again to fine-tune all of my client contracts and waivers!
Marie assisted our company with significant revisions and improvements to our existing contracts and company policies. She is knowledgeable and thorough. We were under tight timelines and she was able to work swiftly without compromising quality. She took the time to answer our many questions over text and email. I really appreciated that she walked us through each of our contracts and explained the legal jargon in plain language. This saved us a lot of time. We would highly recommend her firm.
While it takes a long time to work with the government, the attorney kept me in the loop the whole time. Good service.
I highly recommend this law firm. I needed help with getting my husband's immigration visa. He was still in Italy and we were having trouble getting some documents. Marie not only helped me figure out how to get the documents I needed, she organized all my documents perfectly and proofread every page, noticing things that I had missed when filling out my forms. She helped with filing and let us know what additional paperwork was needed to make sure that we did not get any RFE notices. My husband's visa was approved!
