    We are extremely grateful to the Rahgozar Law Firm for assisting us in our immigration case. A special thanks to Pegah for all her help, advice and for making sure we had a chance to fight for this complicated case. Our adopted son got a green card 2 weeks ago. It has been a long journey, Pegah served as more than our counsel; she is a shoulder to lean on and a source of knowledge and understanding. Her knowledge of immigration law, immigration controls and the overall system gave my family peace of mind and a successful outcome. She made an otherwise turbulent and difficult experience a little less stressful and we couldn’t be happier with the service that she and her staff provided. Without a doubt she is incredible! Thanks again Pegah!!! Feeling blessed and incredibly grateful!

    Mrs. Pegah Rahgozar helped in the filing of a working visa for one of our employee early in the year 2017. We found Pegah via a search on google reviews. She was very patient and helpful throughout the whole process. It was the first time for our company to engage in this type of filing therefor, we didn’t know what in the world we were supposed to do. she explained the whole thing thoroughly. She listened to us and was very caring. She was very professional and experienced. She answered all our questions and made us feel like our case was her priority. She was always polite and courteous, we felt comfortable discussing all issues with her. She made sure all the options were exhausted for the success of our case and I really appreciate that about her. Overall, I am very satisfied with her service and I would highly recommend her.

    January of 2015 while on holidays in Houston, my wife and I decided to speak with an immigration lawyer about moving to Houston to live. I am a natural born citizen of the USA but my wife and her two boys are Argentine. Other people we know that have immigrated to the States typically have been sponsored through their work but our situation and paths were different requiring us to find a local lawyer familiar with out type of case. I found several names online and sent out requests for information. Ms. Rahgozar responded within a day and was the only response we received. To our pleasure we found Ms Rahgozar to be personable, professional and knowledgeable, she took the time to explain the whole process, all of the fees, the steps required and the pitfalls we could encounter. Upon return to Buenos Aires we began the process of gathering documents and information for the application. Every document had to be translated and certified, this included but was not limited to birth certificates, school records, marriage certificate, bank statements, character references from friends and business relations, the list goes on. Since we had a comprehensive list provided to us by Ms Rahgozar and her timely responses to our many inquires we had everything required by the time we returned to Houston the next year. Back in Houston everything went smoothly, Ms Rahgozar and her staff prepared our application and guided us through the process. Unfortunately the immigration system was slowing down for a variety of reasons but Ms Rahgozar kept us informed and reassured us that nothing was wrong, it was just the speed of government. On the day of our interview Ms Rahgozar was prompt and had a comfortable working relationship with the Immigration's Agent assigned to our case. The interview itself was a bit anticlimactic, having heard horror stories about the interviews going terribly wrong we expected the worst and were surprised at how easy it was. Since our application was spot on and Ms Rahgozar had done a good job of preparing us, the interview was smooth and effortless. Within two weeks the green cards arrived and we all celebrated. I highly recommend Ms Rahgozar and her firm, they were always professional, kept us abreast, informed and importantly there were no 'oops' moments or hidden fees. Another huge plus to us is the fact that her staff always included someone fluent in Spanish allowing my wife to discuss some of the technical legal issues in her native language and to help us insure the accurate translation and interpretation of documents. A last word; My youngest stepson, Joaquin, just graduated from high school here in Houston. With his Green Card in one hand, Diploma in the other and citizenship on the horizon, he feels the world is his to own as he prepares to navigate the many paths the future has to offer to him. No small thanks and gratitude go to Pegah Rahgozar and the Rahgozar Law Firm for helping us make this a reality. Besos enorme Marc Pujol, Marisu Rimoldi

    I had a great experience with Pegah Rahgozar, she is efficient, clear and kind. You feel that she is really in charge of your case. She answer fast any communication, and gives the time I need for explanations, and understandings, also because English is not my first language. She is available for any question in a very accessible way. I highly recommend her.

    I found out about Pegah through my mothers coworker. Considering i had a horrible experience with a previous attorney, Pegah reassured me things would get done for my husbands case. She is a great attorney explains everything step by step as the case goes and lets you know what to expect. I would highly recommend Pegah to anybody in the future.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We meet for an initial consultation during which I explain the types of relief the individual is likely qualified for; I address any issues that may arise; and I provide the cost and time frame of each step of the process. Once I'm hired on the case, we hit the ground running. The client gets a list of things to do, and documents to obtain. We make sure the client is just as involved in the process and gets to know exactly what is being done on their case and where their money is going to. We set a timeline in terms of when things are due and when something would be filed.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A majority of my focus in terms of coursework, practical application, and internships in law school was in immigration law. I also spent one year in the immigration clinic as a law student, and was able to gain invaluable knowledge and experience in brief and motion writing as well as court room/trial work.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started doing immigration work as a law student working in the immigration clinic. I was able to work with top notch professors and supervising attorneys who helped mold me into the compassionate attorney I am today. The hands on experience and the complexity of the cases I had the opportunity to work on was not only extremely invaluable, but it led me to want to continue the practice of immigration law upon graduation.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Adjustment of Status, Consular Processing, Student Visas, Visitor Visas, Employment Visas, Work Authorization, H Visas, L Visas, E Visas, Asylum, Deportation Defense, Appeals, RFEs, VAWA, U Visa
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A client with a complicated 30 year immigration procedural history and a previous order of removal, and an appeal with the BIA, came to me. We were able to negotiate with ICE Chief Counsel's Office to terminate proceedings and allow my client to file for a green card through USCIS. After 1.5 years we got him his permanent residency. It was a long but successful road!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you hire a compassionate and aggressive attorney as the immigration process can very difficult process to maneuver through.
