She has also helped several of our family members with their status and we are greatful and satisfied with the outcome. Overall she’s talented and very understanding.

Tareq Anani. March 2017.

“VERY HELPFUL!! My situation was very complex due to a deportation order. My attorney Leslie Diaz was very honest since the first day I walked into her office and told me all the options a had and the real chances of getting my green card approved through marriage. It was a long process but Leslie answered all my emails and calls during the long wait, which made a huge difference. My green card was approved about a month ago and I couldn’t be any happier . Thank you Leslie!!!”

Grace Quijano. January 2017.

“A very professional firm. We worked with Kristen she was extremely helpful and was always available to answer any questions.”

Rafael Alvarado. January 2017.

“Very happy we made a choice to go with this firm! Leslie Diaz was very knowledgeable and optimistic about our case. She helped us first with a fiancé visa K1 and then with getting a green card. We were always able to get in touch with the lawyer herself or the paralegal if we had any questions, which were answered in a timely matter. Their prices are competitive…and they are absolutely worth it! Thanks again Leslie and Kristen!”

Natalia Pchelintseva January 2017.

“My experience with Weinstock Immigration Lawyers was without a doubt one of best experiences every. I am thankful to Nellie Navidi and Alina Cox for their professionalism, understanding and overwhelming support they offer their clients. My process was lengthy, however they walked me through every process in detail. I highly recommend this firm if you ever need immigration advise or support. Thank you once again ladies and to your team for all the work you done for us. An extremely satisfied client”

Donna Green January 2017.

“We contacted Weinstock Immigration Lawyers in February 2016 regarding getting a green card for my non-citizen spouse. He just got his green card 2 weeks ago. The experience with the firm in general, and with our attorney, Nellie, is pleasant. They arranged things quickly. The speed of the whole process just really depends on us and the government. As long as we provided every necessary documents and photos, they will file them right away. We did have a minor problem with their accounting department thought. Somehow, they charged the attorney fee to another credit of mine, not the one I wanted them to charge. To us, the fee we paid for the firm is well-worthy. First, we didn’t have to worry about filling applications. We just needed to provide documents that they required and done. They even have someone to notarize and translate some of our documents. Second, without Nellie’s advice, we might let my spouse come back to his country and now we know it would be a wrong move. In addition, she also help us to get my spouse his work permit and travel documents, which we would never think about that. The work permit actually helped my spouse blending into his new live in the US easier. Third, when we received our first interview notice, we thought we have to cancel the trip that we planned for months (we already paid for everything). But it was not a problem since we had Lisa to help us to reschedule it. Reading those online forum about rescheduling immigration interview, we thought it would be hard. But Lisa made it so easy to us. Fourth, Nellie arranged a phone meeting with us before the interview. The phone call actually helped us more than we thought. It calmed us down. She told us what we should expect. Finally, Nellie came with us to the interview. We had to pay extra money to have her with us. But it really worth the money. She knows the place, all we have to do is follow her. At one point, when I talked with the interviewer, Nellie jumped in to help me to clarifying some information that might be misunderstood for the interviewer. Since we were nervous, sometimes, we might said something that we don’t even realize what we are talking about. Having someone like Nellie with us actually help us to keep the right direction. After a long interview, we finally got approval. However, for some reason, the interviewer didn’t know that we need a stamp on my spouse’s passport so he can travel with me on Christmas (in case he not yet receives his green card). The interviewer told us that the current travel docs should be okay. But Nellie knew it’s not okay and somehow, she finally get a stamp for my spouse’s passport. At that moment, we truly felt that she really goes extra miles for us – her client. When my spouse came here in the US, we would never think that we can help him to be able to stay here legally and start a new life that fast. We are same-sex couple. We have a big age difference. He was here on his B2 visa. We understand that those 3 things absolutely bring a red flag to an immigration case. We thought it would be very hard we might have to deal with a lot of emotional stress. Luckily, we have Nellie and Lisa who make the whole process is surprisingly smooth. We are very happy with them. If you are reading this long comment and considering hiring an attorney for your immigration case, you should consider Nellie.”

Richard Misener December 2016.

“I was directed to this firm by my employer as they were assisting in my application for a green card. The process was very straightforward and simplified by a comprehensive questionnaire. A few simple calls and everything was on it’s way. They were very knowledgable in the process and requirements and answered all my questions immediately. They kept me updated of the progress all along the way and followed up to the completion. This was definately a good choice and well worth the investment to have the confidence that my application was complete and would be processed without issue.”

Ted Hawkshaw December 2016.

“The best I’ve ever had, this firm got the job done rather quickly. I was impatient with them because the process took quiet a while, but that was due to immigration itself not the law firm. But in itself Weinstock law firm ,I was told by the Ethiopian consulate the the paper work was so detailed and organized , that they were amazed and said they wished everyone who came to them was like it , also it made process move along at a rapid pace , job well done, well done weinstock. Well done. Thank you and I now have my wife coming within a couple of weeks.”

A.C. December 2016.

“I was a client of Karen Weinstock for over 10 years, first when she was at another firm and then I sought out her expertise when she open her own practice. In fact, Karen was recommended to me by a colleague who lives across the country, who commented that “Weinstock is J1″. If you have a seemingly impossible J1 situation, these are the people you contact. Most recently, Nellie N. and Lisa S. from Weinstock Immigration Lawyers helped out my mother with her green card application. They were professional, goal-oriented, and got everything done on time. I have recommended Weinstock’s team to a few of my friends. I am happily doing it here as well.”

“It was a great pleasure working with Raju. She is very professional and easy to communicate with. She did an excellent job in preparing the documents for my case, which indeed has been approved very fast. I would highly recommend Raju and the firm for immigration petitions.”

Yingjie Lao. April 2017.

“Very experienced attorney”

Edo Ohayon. March 2017.

“I am an Indian Citizen working as a Software Engineer in the US and I had applied for my Green card 12 years before. My green card was pending approval for a long time as it was getting processed on EB3. When my application date became current I received an RFE from USCIS and it had to be answered. I was prompted by my employer to approach Weinstock Immigration Lawyers to seek help in answering the RFE. I started interacting with the Weinstock Lawyers, submitted them all the necessary documents. The paralegal was very courteous and after analyzing my situation they were able to prepare the necessary paperwork and were able to reply to the RFE. To my great surprise, I got my green card approval from USCIS without any further delay or queries. I thank profusely Weinstock Lawyers for their help in enabling me to put an end to my long wait for the green card. I was also charged very little for their invaluable services. I highly recommend them for anyone who is seeking immigration help.”

Satya Giriappa. February 2017.

“I contacted attorney Patel after having doubts of what Mrs. Reilly, my past attorney was doing with my case. Patel explained me how I was going to be banned for 3 years from entering the US for the actions of my past lawyer who did not file in time in my name. Thanks to Patel’s extensive knowledge of the law, professionalism and care, in a very difficult case I was able to get a new visa. For all this, if you ask me she is nothing less than an angel.”

David Diaz. January 2017.

“I had a pleasure to work with Karen and Weinstock Immigration Lawyers. It was a very smooth ride from my H-1B visa to the green card.
The team was able to show commitment to the case and work under severe time pressure to make sure everything was done right and in time.
I would definitely recommend Weinstock Immigration Lawyers to anyone who’s looking for immigration-related help.”

Sergii. November 2016.

“After many years of having working visas, I decided to move forward and look for the permanent residency through my employer. It is a long and complex process and the company and I needed to make sure that we had the best immigration lawyers on our side. They are very professional and knowledgeable, the whole process was flawless, thanks to them. I would definitely recommend Weinstock Immigration Lawyers for your all your immigration needs, they are the best. Always thankful, Felipe.”

Felipe Bobadilla. July 2016.

“My name is Karima. Karen and her staff helped me with my green card procedure. They are really nice and helpful. They always have answered quick to are emails and phone calls. They also answered all my questions regarding about my green card. They staff is really friendly and always helpful. They are the best lawyers in Atlanta. Trust me on that.”

Karishma Allauddin. June 2016.

“I hired Rajeshri Shah Patel to work on my employment-based application for permanent residency. I appreciated the guidance of Rajeshri and her expertise in the immigration laws, which are considered to be very complicated and dynamically changing. She was very patient with me and answered all my questions. I encourage everyone, however, to seek second and third opinions to all questions you ask an attorney. The turnaround of all legal work was fast and the outcome was successful. The pricing was affordable for me to pay. In the course of my application, I received a request for evidence, which we were able to resolve when I prepared a sworn statement. To avoid receiving requests for evidence, I suggest everyone to make sure you provide all relevant information to USCIS up front and double check if your application was correctly completed by an attorney. Hope this helps and good luck!”.

I.S. March 2016.

“They filed the I-140 petition on my behalf. I really appreciate the high quality of their work. For example, all the letters of recommendation were extremely well written, and every sentence highlighted me and my research, not someone in general. Also, they responded to my inquiry very quickly, even during the weekend. My case was approved within a week. Overall, it’s an absolutely pleasant experience working with them! Additionally, I felt the charge was very reasonable. I just provided them a summary of my research and some documents. They took care of everything else. If you need someone to help you file your I-140, I will strongly recommend Attorneys Karen Weinstock and Leslie Diaz because I worked with both of them, and they are absolutely awesome.”

Meihua Qian. January 2016.

“My husband and I went through Weinstock for our green card applications (employment based), and just recently got our approvals! although the process was lengthy and complicated mainly due to the nature of the field I am in and my related degrees, there was no doubt in my mind at any point that Weinstock would be able to help us through the process. They have been very helpful throughout and answered every question we had promptly and efficiently. Thank you Weinstock team!”

“I really appreciate the high quality of her work. She is knowledgeable lawyer and hard work I have ever known”

Tri Ngo. March 2017.

“For nearly two years since I passed my naturalization interview, I had not heard any decision from USCIS (approval or denial). Every inquiry I sent to the USCIS gave me the same reply: wait. Every Infopass appointment I went to got me the same answer: wait. I lost hope on ever getting my citizenship, which is why, when Nellie got me an oath letter, it felt kinda surreal. But when I swore my allegiance to the US today in the ceremony, I knew it was real. I am actually a US citizen now.
Looking back, I wished I had asked for help from Weinstock earlier. The lawyer who helped me, Ms. Nellie Navidi, is professional, knowledgeable, and experienced. She went to the Infopass appointment for me in the morning and within six hours, rescued my case from the administrative sinkhole and had my oath scheduled for the following week.
Nellie and all other lawyers at Weinstock have been in this business for many years. They know how to deal with USCIS. They know when to be nice and patient, and when to push USCIS with just the right amount of force to get things done. I highly recommend those who have difficulty with immigration to contact Weinstock. It saves so much time and energy, not to even mention their very reasonable price.”

Richard Zhang. September 2016.

“Ms Weinstock and her team did a great job! Before I hired her, I tried to get through immigration laws on my own, and failed after spending lots of money on fees. Karen knew exactly what to do, anticipated the obstacles and how to overcome them. She knew what will be the next step and the exact timing. At the end of it, problems solved!”

O. S. August 2016.

“Nellie was very professional and competent in managing our unique citizenship case. My spouse’s case was expedited Citizenship with a 319-B exception while living abroad with me as a private military contractor. Nellie had to adapt and prove our case a USCIS officer that had no experience with a case of our circumstances and did not want to grant my wife’s citizenship. She was successful in doing so as our case was approved, at the same time very friendly and comforting to be around because of her positivity and sense of humor…….. Not the typical attorneys I’m used to. Nellie was very sincere with my wife’s case and council and I do not believe we would have been successful without her. Thanks again Nellie!”

Preston May 2016.

“I worked with Leslie to obtain my green card and citizenship. What kept me coming back to her is that she stayed on top of everything and always updated me on every step or notification received. The whole process was worry free.”

Jose April 2016.

“I would very highly recommend Weinstock Immigration Lawyers to anyone looking for top-notch immigration-related representation. I needed help with an issue and enlisted them to help me with my process. They handled my case successfully and were extremely helpful. Nellie Navidi met with me and was very professional and friendly from the beginning. I was put at ease after she explained the process. Our correspondence via email and in person was great and Nellie even accompanied me to my interview. At my interview appointment, just like she assured me, everything went very smoothly with no issues whatsoever. For the great results I received, their fee was very reasonable and it was money well spent. I am extremely happy with the outcome and would recommend them 100 times over!!”

Stephen Tettey February 2016.

“Weinstock Immigration Lawyers (WIL) was recommended to me by a friend with a challenging immigration issue. Noticing how satisfied and happy he was with his process I felt that I should give them a try knowing that I needed a lawyer for my naturalization process. Contacting WIL and meeting Nellie Navidi and her staff was the best thing that could happened to me. My naturalization process I thought was going to be fraught with anxiety, obstacles and pain. NONE of that thanks to Nellie and her team (Lisa), they kept me informed about deadlines and how my process was going with periodic emails. During my immigration interview I was calmed and even enjoyed my morning at the immigration office with Nellie by my side (hard to believe if you’ve ever been to that office haha). I will be recommending without hesitation WIL to any one I hear has any migratory problem. Nellie is absolutely wonderful !! Love them and will be forever grateful for my smooth naturalization process! PS. I got patriotic mints and a small constitution booklet after I became a citizen as a congratulatory gift from Weinstock Immigration, I thought that was awesome! :)”

I called because I needed help with an immigration issue. I was pleased with the way in which my case was handled. I was made very comfortable throughout the process.

“I am so happy that with the help of Weinstock Immigration Lawyers, I got my green card. It all started when my company looked for a new immigration lawyer to extend my H1-b after the first one did not work. We had a bad experience from my previous lawyer. But with Weinstock, particularly Raju Patel and Alina Cox, everything went smooth. From H1-b extensions to EB-2, everything went well. They are so helpful, very professional, very knowledgeable, and will attend to all of your needs. I met them in person and they are so welcoming and I felt comfortable talking to them about my immigration issues because they give the best advise! Thank you guys so much! I highly recommend these guys to anyone who are seeking immigration help. Great job guys!”

“Our experience with Weinstock Immigration Lawyers was by far the best experience we have had with any top law firm in Atlanta (We had the opportunity to request the services of four of them prior to contacting Weinstock Immigration Lawyers). Karen and Vered are extremely knowledgable and professional. They addressed all our concerns resulting in a successful approval of our immigration application and transition of status. I will recommend them for any one who may be seeking representation for a smooth and successful immigration process.”

Pc Shum. February 2017.

Karen and her staff were a life saver to our project, EXPOSED Festival of Israeli contemporary dance and theater. They were highly professional, very thorough, readily available, gave good and clear advice, knew the immigration landscape inside and out. All things being said, I would only use and recommend Weinstock Immigration Lawyers for future visa needs. I am grateful.”

Sue Schroeder. January 2017.

“We worked with Leslie on our EB1 petition and overall we had great experience. Leslie is really easy to communicate with, she responded to our questions promptly and she basically took care of everything from beginning to end. She’s really professional and knows her craft very well. She’s also really flexible, I asked for some last minute changes on the application material and she accommodated our request immediately. We would highly recommend Leslie and this firm if you are also applying for green card/ petitioning for employment-based immigration!”

“We needed a Green Card for one of our employees on an E-Visa and after some research we hired Weinstock Immigration. During the first meeting, after review of some key information, the attorney assigned to our case, Rajeshri Patel, clearly explained the process, the expected time frame and the approach she was going to have and how our company needed to cooperate for the best opportunity to succeed. She personally, together with the paralegal Alina Cox, guided us through every step. After 1 year our employee received his green card. No audit, no delays, no RFE required. Everything was very smooth and quick. Costs exactly as per initial quote. Strongly recommended to every business.”

Thank you Keren and vered for all your help, i’m defiantly a very happy customer and more than to recommend your services to others. Warm regards, Itzik Polnauer”

“We contacted Karen by a family recommendation from someone who desperately needed to leave her country of origin. We were in a similar situation. Karen and her wonderful staff guided us with GPS precision through the difficult ¨foggy¨ process of getting an investors visa. They are well versed and knowledgeable of the difficult and painstaking process of an application and they have a real understanding of what really is at stake if you don´t get it. They work inspired by that and they make sure the process covers all the pointy edges and fine print of the requirements. It has been an investment well spent!!”

Moises Hernández June 2016.

“I hired Weinstock Lawyers because of a recommendation form one consulate. Karen and her team helped me with my investor’s visa. They covered all the pointy edges and intricate details of an investor’s visa application from the business plan to my wife’s working permit. The have answered all my questions and they do their work considering what is at stake in terms of life, money and well being when someone applies for an immigration visa. I can tell it was money well invested.”

Doc Lion June 2016.

“I had the pleasure to work with Karen and her team for the past 5 years, first for my R1 visa and later for my green card application, Karen and her staff are extremely professional, knowledgeable and great to work with. in the immigration world it is so nice to find lawyers that are getting the job done while providing you with great costumer service!”

Roey Shoshan December 2015.

“Before we had one dedicated firm to handle all our immigration cases, we would get conflicting information and the attorneys we used may not have our company’s best interests in mind. We had been getting advice from Weinstock Immigration for years and occasionally would use them when an employee would ask for a referral. Karen Weinstock is uber focused on compliance and keeping us out of any immigration audit or lawsuit. She will be frank and honest- I totally trust her. When we received an audit based on another attorney’s work, we passed it on the Weinstock firm to handle, which led to a positive outcome. When it was decided that we needed to consolidate all our cases and have a dedicated firm, we received bids from three firms. Weinstock’s service is what put them over the edge and made us choose them. They are always available, and there is no need to make an appointment to talk with an attorney. That’s a big plus, as we are fast-paced and quite often need answers quickly. I can’t say enough about Karen Weinstock, Raju Patel, Vered Hod and the entire team. They are professional and knowledgeable, and I know our company is compliant on all immigration issues. I can’t imagine using any other firm. They are well deserving of praise.”

LARGE DEFENSE CONTRACTORH-1B VISAS GONE WRONGWIDEARC-IT CONSULTING COMPANYHOSPITAL AND DOCTOR

Overview

A hospital in Georgia used a major corporate labor and employment law firm to handle an H-1B visa for one of its physicians, but the attorneys filed the case incorrectly because they did not have the necessary healthcare immigration expertise. When it was time to file for a key physician’s green card, they discovered that the H-1B visa was filed incorrectly and the physician was out of status and working without authorization.

Problem

Hospital was at risk of losing significant revenues and its ability to care for patients. Because he was out of status, a key physician had to stop working and return to his home country as it is no longer lawful for him to live and work here. He faced the loss not only of his salary, but his entire investment in residency and fellowship in the United States. He could not file for a green card, and the hospital was about to lose a significant return on investment it made in this physician throughout the recruitment and onboarding process.

Intervention

We immediately strategized a plan of action to address this gross mistake. We acknowledged the mistake to USCIS and filed an extraordinary circumstances application with request to reinstate the doctor’s status. USCIS approved the case.

Results

The doctor was approved for the correct visa and his status was reinstated retroactively, so he did not have to leave the country. Our swift action and creative solution allowed the physician to remain in the United States while his case was sorted out. His status was quickly reinstated, enabling him to continue his important work in caring for patients. The hospital did not lose revenues and received a return on the investment it made in the physician. The physician also referred 2 of his colleagues to work in the hospital, saving the hospital significant recruitment efforts.

H-1B VISAS GONE WRONGLARGE DEFENSE CONTRACTORWIDEARC-IT CONSULTING COMPANYHOSPITAL AND DOCTOR

Overview

A technology company that relied on many H-1B workers received an H-1B audit from the U.S. Department of Labor. During the same year, all of the H-1B visas that the company filed were denied by USCIS. The company came to us to help with the audit and to obtain approvals for the H-1B visas that were denied.

Problem

Company was at risk to lose a contract worth $500,000 because it was unable to get the visas for key employees approved. The company was also facing $250,000 in fines and criminal penalties in the Department of Labor investigations. The executives of the company were unable to properly run its operations in light of the audit.

Intervention

After the company hired us, we prepared a full response to the Department of Labor audit. We advised the company on strategies to mitigate its damages and mitigate its risks of fines and criminal penalties. At the same time, we filed several appeals and actions on the denied H-1B visas.

Results

We were successful in negotiating a deal with the Department of Labor that resulted in no fines and no criminal penalties to the company and its owners and executives. Multiple H-1B visa applications were later approved, and the company was able to fulfill its contracts and obligations. Company’s revenues increased by 15% following that year.

WIDEARC-IT CONSULTING COMPANYLARGE DEFENSE CONTRACTORH-1B VISAS GONE WRONGHOSPITAL AND DOCTOR

Overview

An IT consulting company came to us after an L-1 visa application for its Chief Operating Officer was denied. The company could not move forward with its operations expansion without its COO.

Problem

Company was at risk of losing a key employee and was unable to properly run its business operations in the United States because its first attorney failed to obtain the L-1 visa status needed for that employee. Company was at risk of losing key contracts because it was unable to recruit and train enough consultants on time without the COO.

Intervention

After the company hired us, we devised a completely different strategy to overcome the prior denial. We rebuilt the case from scratch to ensure we had all of the critical documents in place when we filed the case.

Results

The company received the visa approval in less than a week after we filed the case with USCIS. The COO happily relocated to the United States and continued the business operation expansion by joining up with a larger IT company through a joint venture agreement. This momentous business deal could not have been possible without the COO.
