You will definitely want to consult with an attorney who practices immigration law in the following circumstances: 1) if you have had an immigration application refused or denied; 2) if you are uncertain about your eligibility for a green card or other immigration benefit; 3) if you are requesting any sort of discretionary relief, such as political asylum or a waiver, which involves persuading the immigration authorities to make an exception or offer you benefits that it might not ordinarily offer another applicant in your position; 4) if you have been notified that deportation or removal proceedings have been initiated against you or  your loved one; 5) if you have been deported from the U.S. and wish to apply to return; 6) if you have been convicted of a criminal offense or have committed a criminal offense and are trying to enter the U.S. or protect yourself from removal from the U.S.; 7) if you are planning to move to the U.S. to work for a U.S. employer; 8) if you are applying for an investment-based visa; or 9) if you are encountering delays due to the failure of USCIS or the consulate to act on or approve the application, for reasons that have more to do with bureaucracy than law.

At the Shulman Law Group, LLC, we have experienced firsthand the fact that few people actually have a straightforward and easily approvable case. All it takes is one past visa overstay, criminal conviction, serious health problem, or job loss to make a person "inadmissible," thus requiring extra effort in convincing the immigration authorities to approve the application. In addition, there are times when the government actually misplaces all or part of submitted applications, or requires the applicant to provide further documentation after the application and its forms have been submitted (e.g. a request for evidence known as an "RFE").  Our office is skillful at handing these types of situations and we are poised to intervene utilizing our contacts within the immigration bureaucracy when something like this goes wrong. Without a lawyer's help, you may spend hours traveling to your local immigration office, only to be told by an officer who has no actual access to your file that your case is "pending."  Our office will get to the bottom of the situation in order to help advise you on the most expedient and efficient course of action during the entire process until your application is approved.

To make the long story short - I wouldn't be here now writing this review if it wasn't for him. He fought with me and for me as if he was defending himself and not some stranger from a foreign country. I will highly recommend him - if your case has any chance at all he is the one you need.
