I was one of Earle Sylva's clients. He assisted me with my asylum claim. I consider it a privilege to be asked to write this evaluation. I found Mr. Sylva to be dedicated, trustworthy and punctual. I consider him to be among the best immigration lawyers. My process went along smoothly and am certain that Mr. Sylva's efforts caused the process to go so well. I thank Mr. Sylva for his efforts to help my family and me.
Thank you Karen for all your help, you saved my family in more ways than one. I'm so glad we met each other if there is anyone that needs a great lawyer look no further give Karen a call.
After years of meeting with a variety of immigration attorneys about my case, I was beginning to get extremely discouraged with the feeling that there was no solution for me out there. Considering my case was one that was quite complex, I had lost almost all hope until I met Daniel. At our initial meeting, he gave me an honest assessment of my case and let me know that he felt we had a fairly good chance of prevailing. After some consideration, I decided to retain Daniel as my attorney. Throughout the entire experience going through the citizenship application, Daniel and his staff were responsive, helpful, and honest. The day of my interview, he came with me and was right by side as the immigration officer asked me some questions. After 12 years of carrying around the weight of feeling as though I had to live in the shadows due to what all the other attorneys told me, Daniel, for a reasonable and fair fee, helped me to obtain my citizenship and begin life anew. I can't fully express how grateful I am to Daniel and if you have any immigration related issues I couldn't recommend him strongly enough.
Beverly is extremely professional, kind, effective and helpful. She was with us the whole way, making sure we had everything we needed and giving sound advice when needed. I would absolutely recommend Byrd & Associates to help you with your immigration process. Thank you for helping me move in with my husband, Beverly!
I hired citylawyers after a school bus crashed into my car and they were able to get me over 200,000 dollars for the damages to myself and my car. I highly recommend their attorneys to anybody who is looking for legal representation. Kenia G.
I know it can be very challenging to find a good immigration lawyer. That is why I want to write a review to help people who feel overwhelmed in that quest. As an immigrant, I have been dealing a lot with immigration and therefore with immigration lawyers, so unfortunately I have seen my share of bad and good lawyers. I came here with lots of different working visas then I applied for my green card. The process should have been easy as I had hired a lawyer who was supposedly very good. Actually the file was not done properly, he had made mistakes and there were lots of inconsistencies. Therefore the immigration service denied my green card!!! That lawyer was not even able to explain why it was denied!!! I was totally depressed and SO disappointed, and felt cheated to have paid a useless lawyer. I was panicking. Thanks to a friend who highly recommended them, I found Isabelle and Nicole. I gave a desperate phone call thinking I was doomed. I talked to Isabelle who explained why I should not panic, even without seeing my file she already knew why it did not work and she said they could take my case over. She was very matter-of-fact and very hopeful. Then, I met Isabelle who explained in details how I should present my case, what further information I should provide. I did as she said, then I met her again so she could check all the information, then she sent it to the immigration and 3 weeks later I received my green card!! Both are very compassionate, and really want to help people, they are very smart and positive, and find ways to work around your case. Also, one of them immigrated here young and she saw her parents struggle to become legal, so she knows both sides of the story. I was always amazed to see how prompt they were in returning my calls and emails, and how detail-oriented they were. I was feeling very supported. Because of the urgency of my case, they even met with me and called me after business hours. People I know in the same situation as me usually have an interview! I received my green card with no interview!! No doubt thanks to them who made a huge difference.
My wife entered the US illegally and Sean got my wife a green card in five months start to finish! My wife and I visited Sean to see if she could get a green card using the I-601 waiver. During the appointment Sean asked us a lot of questions and he learned that I had served in the military. Sean said that we might qualify for the hardship waiver, but that we didn't have a lot of hardship evidence and that because I served in the military that my wife could get something called parole-in-place for military spouses and get a green card much faster and easier that way. Sean filed the parole-in-place application and about a month later my wife got parole. Then that made it possible for my wife to adjust status as the spouse of my US citizen husband. The adjustment part took four months. Now my wife's case is approved and she's a permanent resident. She did not have to leave the US to get her US residence. Sean asked a lot of questions and was careful to find the easiest path for her instead of the most obvious one that we initially came in for. That saved a lot of time and money and also saved a nerve wracking trip outside of the US to get a visa at the consulate. We have a young daughter and I worked long hours, so getting legal status for my wife was very important to our family. I recommend Sean to all because he is trustworthy lawyer and performed an awesome quality work on my wife's immigration case. - also note I went to a previous lawyer and she said their was no other way for my wife to get a legal status but Sean found a way to get it done!
