Christian handled my green card application through Diversity VISA lottery. Thanks to his help I was able to be approved and to get all the required information every time. In fact, Christian was always available by phone and email every time I needed extra information while waiting the process for being over. I truly recommend him to everybody.Jun 15, 2016
Christian is an extremely thorough, articulate, and pleasant professional to work with! He helped me and my wife through the green card application for six months, and he was invaluable to the process. He preps you for interviews, handles all your paperwork (making sure you've missed NOTHING), and represents you when the time comes. It was a pleasure working with Christian, I know exactly who to go to whenever I need immigration legal expertise.Jun 23, 2015
Mr. Schmidt was extremely helpful for our situation! Our case was unique and Mr. Schmidt helped us straighten it out and got our marriage immigration case approved. We highly recommend him.Apr 2, 2014
Christian handled all aspects of my wife's Green card application. There were some complicated J1 type considerations involved as well, because my wife had a two year home country requirement waived. Christian came highly recommended by several independent sources- including another immigration attorney. We had a great experience. There wasn't a single problem with our application or process (my wife is African), and Christian was always available for questions and detail oriented. He has mastery of the entire process and legal area involved- this is not common in my experience leading up to retaining him, and was always comforting. He even knew we had a "good" agent when we were called and escorted into our interview and signaled thumbs up so we could breath easy for that. He was there for the interview. Also, it was up to me to select our lawyer but my wife could relate to Christian, liked him, found him easy to deal with, I believe in part because Christian is originally European himself and that sensibility worked for my wife. Considering the amount of money it cost to use Christian, this was a no brainer for me and I would recommend to anyone who can pay his relatively small fee. The green card is a simple process but if anything goes wrong, yikes. We felt we were in good hands and are very happy we retained Christian.Mar 7, 2016
I asked Christian Schmidt to represent me filing an H1B visa and lately a E2 visa - Treaty Investors. He succeeded in both Mr. Schmidt was fantastic in guiding me through the process. He patiently answered all my questions, provided comprehensive and considered advice, and was always available on phone or email for any advice. I have used other lawyers in the past but the service provided by Christian Schmidt is very personalized and far surpasses any previous experience. There is simply no comparison. I highly recommend Mr. Schmidt for their knowledge and advice as well as the organized and professional approach they take with clients. Daniel B. CaliforniaJan 30, 2016
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Having immigrated myself over 20 years ago, I naturally relate to the motives and concerns that come with establishing a new life or business in the U.S. I enjoy the many facets of immigration law and their relevance to the lives of immigrantsit offers me an opportunity to make a difference in many ways and learning about a different prospective.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Look for someone you trust and who you feel is competent to help you in your situation. Do not just look for the lowest fee and do not take serioulsy someone who guarantees that you will win your case.
